Hi, and thanks for the image! Really enjoying messing about with it during some dark times.
One thing I have noticed is that as I scroll through the games I can add them to my favourites menu (which I enabled), however when I reboot the machine the favourites list is reset back to 1, 'Chrono Trigger'. Now, I have messed about with the image , adding some Amiga and ZX Spectrum roms, but everything is working as expected. Except the disappearing favourites. I was wondering does anyone else see this issue, or is it just me? Or is it a common problem and does anyone have any ideas what may be causing it?
Well this morning I gave up trying to get this to work, so I re-wrote the original Damaso 128Gb Nostalgia Trip Pi 4 image back onto the SD Card again. I can confirm this is a problem that does affect the original Damaso 128Gb Nostalgia Trip image. The Favourites are stored in the gamelist.xml inside each system's ROM directory (AFAIK), and Retropie will not overwrite them. I've tried putty'ing in and CHMOD'ing 777 all over the place, but I can't persuade it to write. The same feature affects my ability to set up ZX Spectrum games with certain games having certain keys custom mapped to extra Joystick buttons (say Grenades in Commando, or Pick Up in Atic Atac), or even setting some games to use a Kempston for the Joypad, others to the cursor joystick setting. It doesn't seem to want to overwrite the retroarch.cfg in the ZXspectrum folder /opt/retropie/configs/zxspectrum.
If anyone knows of a solution or has an idea why this is happening I'd be grateful! I'm wondering is this a deliberate feature to stop gamelists and configs from being lost/overwritten?

Damaso has asked me to give you a message, as he cant get here right now, basically
"After adding favourites you have to shutdown by pressing start on your controller and not by the power button icon or else it wonât save the favourites"
please report back and let us know, I believe he is watching the forum
Yep that's cured it! Now I can set up my favourites list and save them by shutting down with the start button! Excellent! Thanks very much for your help, and pass my sincere thanks, for both the help, and the effort he put into the image itself, to Damaso.
PS I was able to get the Spectrum issue sorted by updating RetroArch, from the updated Pi 4 Setup Script!
