That might set your whole system as 'read-only' (i.e. any modifications are discarded on reboot). I'd appreciate if you wouldn't use any fowl language, we're trying to - ironically ! - keep the forum an all ages place.
alright, sorry about that, new to retropie and it's forum.
also, about what you said about the "whole system", it said boot partition when i enabled it, but at this point i give up.
it's gonna suck to have to format my pi but whatever, i reinstalled raspbian 6 times on tuesday trying to get retropie to run on a raspbian installation, before realizing that it wouldn't launch any emulators.
(maybe it not launching anything was related to the screen issue..?)
