Cant save games
« on: January 28, 2018, 08:21 AM »
Hi, I recently got the everdrive n8 and I cant figure out how to save games, I an using the latest OS(v16) and I know to hit select and turn save states on, and how to set the controls for them, but when I go to the game and hit the combo, nothing will happen. it may pause the game, or do whatever action pressing select does. Where in the game can I save/load games (like in menu screens or actually playing the game itself) and if i am on a menu screen, do i have to be on a menu screen to load the game or does it matter.

I am playing the everdrive on the Hyperkin retron1 (not the hd one) and my sd card is formatted correctly as 32 kb.
Please let me know what is wrong, this is a major problem for me, Thanks

Bear in mind that not all mappers currently support save states.
When the save states ARE supported on the game you are playing, you can literally save anywhere.

This is due to you trying to use it on a Retron.  I also started with a Retron2 before getting my NES console and it is not compatible for save states.   Games ran fine for me though.
