Saving Issues after lastest updates.
So Only have SNES roms,
After updating to 18.02.09, I have been seen issues where the recalbox fails to:
-Remember new games added to favorites list
-Fails to remember save files.
I noticed today, I went to Chrono Trigger... and puff, lost four hours because the save file was deleted? I guess...
Then I loaded DKC 2, and same, no saved files...
It has to be something serious, because ES says a game was last played months ago, or never, and that is not true...
I'm storing roms and scraped info on an external USB drive.
I did it by following this guide when I was in 4.0
At this point I would like to:
1- See if there is any way to recover the saved files
2- I'm thinking about blowing everything and start from scratch with a more recent BETA version?
I'm new to recalbox and raspberry world, but immediatly seems to have problems.
I just installed recalbox using NOOBS and after a couple of tries I've came up with your same problem.
My saved files are overwritten at reboot. This happens to roms, configurations (language, date/time, controllers).
And this happens if the changes are made through the ui of recalbox, via ssh or via webpage on the local lan.
By the way, I've a couple of other things:
- the partition at the end of the installation has not been enlarged, so it is too small to host roms - is there a way to take all the space available?
- haven't managed to use these instructions https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-os/wiki/Load-your-roms-from-a-network-shared-folder-(EN) to load from a NAS my roms, I guess because at reboot everything is gone. I'll double check this.
Then i found your post. I will stop trying to understand and will wait for updates.
A last question. How do I know my exacly installed version of recalbox? Nothing emerges from the web page...
I've found my version: 18.2.09... is it possible?!
@pc1919 open a new post since you have different issues
Make sure you followed
16GB SD and using Etcher NOT noobs
@boxcarpilot check the saves folder to see what's been saved and when
I checked the saves folder under /share.
They were there, I exported them and then proceed to test with a PC emulator for snes.
Unfortunately, it seems they were not saved....
Anyway, I was thinking about, maybe shutting down the Pi3 via cutting off AC power might not be a good idea.
I will buy a new case for it, and see if I can program the soft shutdown to a physical button.
@boxcarpilot now it is working. I've done a fresh installation after downloading the full image.
I guess the problem is noobs.
