    error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
    platforms.cfg Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge. Aborting.


    Can someone explain me, pls? Maybe I changed something in that file some days ago – but I do not find it anymore 🙂 Where can I find it and how can I fix this?

    The error occurs because you have made a manual edit on your pi to the platforms.cfg file in the RetroPie-Setup folder.

    The simplest way to fix is to delete the platforms.cfg file (back up first), then update the RetroPie script. You can then reinstate any changes to platforms.cfg after the update.

    or copy platforms.cfg to configs/all and manage it yourself from there (that will be used over the RetroPie-Setup one by the script if it exists. (and then reset the RetroPie-Setup one)
