I created the folder through Midnight Commander (File Manage in the retropie folder). I have since done a clean install and only transferred 1 rom over and it worked. I don’t know why but I think the issue has to do with the gameslist.xml I copied over as I was getting errors for these. I will try rescrape get using the sselph scraper and see if I can get a working gameslist.xmlturnipeaterParticipant11/24/2015 at 23:00Post count: 25
I’m not sure if the retroarch recovery file which is being written is anything to do with this issue however I do see errors saving gameslist.xml which may indicate an issue with retropie writing to this location. How would I check if the pi has access to this location?
I watched the video and can confirm that I followed all steps I should have (my 3.0 installation worked faultlessly but the 2 3.2.1 installations I have done have been problematic)
Strangely it doesn’t answer the question of why the pi is completely ignoring the request to write to a different location and instead is writing save states to the rom folder yet .srm files fail completely. Maybe there is an issue with cleanly exiting the emulator…
Ultimately I can’t see what I have done wrong here, the problem is strange in that my retroarch.cfg seems to be being ignored and .srms are failing but states are saving. The best option for me may be to redownload 3.2.1 sd card image, install onto sd, add a rom and test again. I don’t think it would be but the issue could be caused by importing old scraped data from the sselph scraper or something…
If you have any other ideas I would be interested to hear them! Thanks so much for your help so far though!turnipeaterParticipant11/24/2015 at 21:30Post count: 25
If it helps, I can save an load I game until I quit and reload the emulator, I have tried psx and snes and having these issues and also get a retroarch recovery file created in home/pi every time I load and exit an emulator which contains gobbledygook very frustrating!turnipeaterParticipant11/24/2015 at 21:14Post count: 25turnipeaterParticipant11/24/2015 at 20:25Post count: 25turnipeaterParticipant11/24/2015 at 20:13Post count: 25
Thanks for the reply floob, I tried to do this and followed your instructions, however saves are not saving at all and save states are saving to the default rom folder. This is happening whether I change the save location or not

I worked this out in the end, I was able to reassign controllers in the retroarch menu during emulation. This is very manual and needs to be done each time a rom is booted up though so my request for this feature still stands!

Thanks, I decided on a clean install in the end, I just copied the individual files I wanted from micro sd to micro sd using Midnight commander. When creating backups in future however, I will follow the method you suggested!

Thought I’d update this with my progress in case anyone else is looking. I got the connection writing and can connect 2 controllers. This was my method
Clean Retropie install
1. write reyropie image to sd card using pi filler
2. Expand file system
3. Update retropie setup script
4. Generic Bluetooth setup http://www.modmypi.com/blog/installing-the-raspberry-pi-nano-bluetooth-dongle
5. To get 2 ps3 controllers to connect wirelessly https://m.reddit.com/r/RetroPie/comments/2xgoz3/trouble_connecting_two_ps3_controllers_through/
I then paid controllers using the built in tool
One issue remains however in that the connection is intermittent, sometimes on boot up bluetooth won’t work, other times it will. Has anyone else encounterd this?
