Hello,
I'm using Wiiflow Lite and I'm running everything from my USB hard drive (SD card is not present at all!). I am trying to set up the emulator plugins and everything from covers to finding roms goes great. The roms play fine but the only problem I have, is that I cannot save core settings, or any of the retroarch settings!

If I run retroarch from the Homebrew channel, everything is fine, saves, settings etc but if I use the Wiiflow plugins, I cannot change or save anything... It is even using the Retroarch's default settings and not the ones I made using the standalone emulator. Any suggestions please? Thank you :)

This is my GAMBATTE.ini file. Maybe I have something wrong you can tell me...

[PLUGIN]
displayname=Game Boy
magic=474D4264
coverfolder=Game Boy
dolfile=apps/retroarch-wii/gambatte_libretro_wii.dol
romdir=roms/Game Boy/Best
filetypes=.gb|.dmg|.zip
consolecoverid=nintendo
covercolor=ffffff
bannersound=GB.ogg
arguments={device}:/{path}/|{name}

Is the gambette dol file in wiiflow/plugins/ folder?

You try putting the full path for the dolfile. Meaning include the device like this.
Usb1:/apps/retroarch-wii/gambatte_libretro_wii.dol

Thank you for your answer. I tried what you said but I probably did something wrong and didn't manage to get it right... In the end, I ended up using the vbagx-mod13 because gambatte was giving me DSI errors 3 out of 5 tries even when I tried using an SD card... I prefered GAMBATE as far as options and compatibility goes but we can't have everything... Thanks again!
