I ran uodate_all and it gave me new nes and snes cores (prob others too) that wouldn’t run games and the auto save feature was greyed out. Nes now boots the disc drive menu for some reasons (fixed it by removing the boot.rom in the folder) and the snes wouldn’t play games like chrono cross, dk1-2, star fox ect. Luckily I had a backup of my original sd mister card so I copied over the “_consoles” folder and overwrote what update_all script just totally screwed me over on. Lost all my save states too.
Anyway long story short, to fix the snes auto save feature I booted up star fox 2 to make sure I have the old snes core and it booted up perfectly (same with dk1-2 and chrono cross). Once it ran star fox 2 I hit f12 to access the snes core menu and auto save was selectable and I turned it on and hit save backup ram. Then I booted up SMW and bam! I was no longer greyed out and I played though until the save option in SMW came up and hit save then turned off the mister, turned back on and went back into the snes core and loaded up SMW and there it was
my save file. Although I did lose all my other saves
I’m not sure if uodate_all screwed this all up but that’s all I did and then I had all these issues. I also had the “thyspion” enabled in update_all so I disabled that in case that’s what caused the issue but last time I ran update_all it completely screwed up my megacd and tg16 cdrom cores to the point where it wouldn’t load games and just selecting megacd would put it into this odd loop and tg16 cdrom would Just refuse to load anything up. Not sure I want to hit update_all every again tbh.
