I’m having some problems with the configurations of my retropie, and i want some help of you guys. If you can help me of course…
Before i start i would like to apologize for my bad english. I’m Brazilian, and maybe i have some problem to say exactly what i need, if so, please ask me and i will try to put it into another way.
So here we go!
I just config my retropie (raspberry pi2 with retropie 3.0 BETA 4) to load games directly from the usb, everything ok until now, but i’m having problems to save state. Every time that i try to save, or load, it fails! Does anybody here have any idea of how to fix it?
I’m having some vídeo problems with n64 and psx as well, both emulators have a high tax of lag (n64 is almost frozen), what can i do to improve the performance?
In any case, thank you for your time! Hope you can help me =)
I believe the save state is due to permissions on the folder. I think the RetroPie Setup script has a helper menu to solve it or you can run chmod on the RetroPie/roms directory.
Something like (but probably not as this is rwx for all):
sudo chmod -R 777 ~/RetroPie/roms
As for the N64 the emulator (mupen64plus) has several ‘plugins’ that are used for the video player; different games require not only different plugins but also occasionally different configuration as well.
There is a thread in the general section for N64 compatibility list. Please check there.
You can use something like winscp to ftp into the raspberry pi and you can view permissions that way or you can type ls -lah in the terminal to get more details on the files in the directory you’re in.
