Opera not saving

Every time I save in a 3do game that save seems to only exist until I hit “close content”. When I reopen the game (any 3do game) it’s gone.

I didn’t find anything searching the forum, so I’m going to take a wild guess and assume most other people don’t have this problem.

What should I do?

that usually means the core is crashing on exit. I don’t recall whether this core produces srm saves, but if it does, make sure you have an SRAM autosave interval set and wait at least that long after saving before you close it.

Looks like it’s probably related to this: https://github.com/libretro/opera-libretro/issues/96

So, i guess the solution is to switch to a shared memory card?

Solved the problem, though this is far from an ideal solution.
