I have a raspberry pi 3b and retropie 4.2. I have an amp connected to the jack 3.5 of my raspberry
I have a new probleme very weird.
I have no sound anymore when i am in games. But sound is working in emulationstation menu.
Everything was ok 2 hours before.
Retroarch.cfg seems ok
I don't know why this issue comes ? And mostly i don't what to do ???
Any ideas ? Somtehing to do or verify ?

I think when I tried 3.5, I had to set the RPi audio settings from auto to 3.5 specifically. I might have had to reboot after doing that too. Maybe worth a try if you haven't already.

You mentioned that your system was working fine a few hours before you lost sound. This could be due to overheating. The Raspberry Pi will shutdown services if it's overheating. This happened to me a few weeks ago, and running the fan controller script again solved the problem once the temperature dropped (I just need to get a quieter fan).
Hope this helps.

Thank you for your answers, actually the probleme is solved.
I had tried to modify my controllers in retroach.cfg with my local network. But when i save the file with wordpad, the sound disappears.
I must modify retroarch.cfg in configuration editor and no probleme anymore

It's actually a really bad idea to modify a linux text config file with a rich text editor.
The best option is to use a linux text editor (vim, nano, ...), or a simple MS notepad (or better, notepad++).
You're lucky only the sound was impacted :)
