This is my setup:
Pi Model: 2B
RetroPie Version Used: 2.6
Built From: SD Image
I’m looking for the way to force Retroarch to automatically save emulator state in regular (short) periods. This is because sometimes it crashes, and I don’t want to lose game state or manually save every minute.
So I altered 2 lines :
savestate_auto_save = true
autosave_interval = 10
In file: /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/retroarch.cfg
Now I run PSX game, but no new auto save file seems to appear:
pi@retropie ~/RetroPie/roms/psx $ ls -lah Crash*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 pi pi 603M Apr 14 2012 Crash Bandicoot.bin
-rw-r–r– 1 pi pi 128K Apr 12 15:04 Crash Bandicoot.srm
-rw-r–r– 1 pi pi 4.3M Apr 11 19:53 Crash Bandicoot.state
-rw-r–r– 1 pi pi 4.3M Apr 11 19:57 Crash Bandicoot.state1
The only file that is being updated (I compare datetime) is Bandicoot.srm – but this is Memory Card (PSX specific) internal console save, not the emulator SRAM dump which I expect to appear.
Did anyone managed to run autosave and can help me with that?
