Everything working great - not overclocking - ALL emulators stopped working?

  • So, this about the 5th time this has happened and I am ready to stomp this Raspberry into a million pieces. I set everything up - spend a week dragging over roms and organizing things. Originally I was attempting to set up different screen settings per core - but then all my emulators quit working, so I assumed it was because the CFG files were getting corrupted somehow? Shoot forward to this latest time, and I haven't messed with anything. Just loaded roms and played. I will edit some core settings for screen size, etc. But it does NOT save on exit. I've been happily playing for a week. I played a ton last night, I don't shut down...I try to load up a game this morning. No dice. All emulators quit working. Any thoughts? Any ideas to hopefully salvage all my work? thanks!

    Do you by any chance shutdown your pi by savagely disconnecting it ? ^^if not do you use a compatible sd card

  • No, I always shut down properly. Using a Samsung Evo 64gig card - and my PSU is to spec.

    Hmmm... then I don't know :s

  • It's perplexing/frustrating. Has anyone else had problems saving retroarch configs and corrupting the whole system?

  • I went in and deleted retroarchcustom.cfg and rebooted. All is well now - go figure. SOLVED

  • The only time anything like this happened to me was after editing the config with word/notepad. Using word++ I've never had a problem and more recently I just use recalbox manager via my phone. I know word/notepad used to cause the config to corrupt
