In order to play I have to manually load the game in Retroarch
https://digdroid.com/forums/discussion/21/why-arent-my-retroarch-settings-saved#latest - Did you follow these steps first?
I'm sorry but how would that relate to my problem? It says Dig creates a copy of the RetroArch config at the moment of installation. That would be the case if I had changed retroArch settings after installing Dig, which I haven't done. Still, my games won't open when launching them from Dig, only from RetroArch. RetroArch opens up with a black screen.
Well, if you don't want to try the basic steps (it seriously is only a couple of button presses), then I guess there's not a need to try and troubleshoot this further. Given this seems specific for Dig it seems it did not properly copy the config file. Emulators are finicky and re-loading the Retroarch config in Dig can help.
