I already changed the settings for if a rom is found on local device don't download . I have also set it to only one rom for the cache folder...I think this is meant to save my device's storage so I don't end up with a bunch of unused roms? Please correct me if I am wrong about that... I would like to know if my game saves / progress gets saved somewhere though.
I have everything setup and it works great but I seem to be missing something in the settings maybe? Whenever I play a game and then quit retroarch it goes back to SPMC which I like. Then if I go back into the IARL later to play the same game it downloads it again even though it is already in the cache folder. Is there anyway to fix this? I am also wondering if it is legal to download roms from archive.org?
I am using SPMC 17 3rd Alpha on a Android 6.0 Mi box.
Thanks for any feedback and thanks again for making this great add-on!
All of your questions are covered in the wiki.
Cache / game files
If the cache is set to Zero, then essentially it will purge the temporary cache every time you try and launch a game (i.e. no cache is used). If you want to save one game and then close it and launch that same exact game again, set the cache to something small that is non-zero (depending on the game you're playing).
Is it legal? I'm not a lawyer, but I believe archive.org has been granted a DMCA exemption 'for the purpose of preservation or archival reproduction of published digital works by a library or archive.' See here and here.
