Gamelists not saving



  • Hello,
    I got a problem which bothers me - any changes made in ES, even playcount, doesn't save in gamelists. When system is being shut down, error apperas at the top:

    Error saving gamelist.xml to "/home/pi/.emulationstation/gamelists/*insert system name here*/gamelist.xml" (For system *insert system name here*)
    

    Path is correct and the only gamelist files are in system folders of path seen above.
    I got this error after fresh install of Retropie 4.4. and just copying my roms, gamelists, downloaded_images folders from my backup of Retropie 4.4.

    Gamelists were made last year with UXS scraper, worked fine till reinstallation of the system.

    Raspberry Pi 3 model B;
    5V,3A power supply;
    Retropie 4.4 (? Literally latest available to download there and fully updated through Retropie Setup as of 19.05.2019.)
    Build from pre-made image "retropie-4.4-rpi2_rpi3.img".
    USB Devices connected: Tp-Link TL-WN722N
    Controller used: PS3 sixaxis

    Look like a permission problem, did you connect UXS with the root user to the Pi ?



  • Thanks! That was the case.
    Problem solved.
