this looks like ScummVM can't save the settings to disk.

posts with similar problem:
viewtopic.php?t=5329&highlight=chmod
viewtopic.php?t=5520&highlight=chmod

Hi clem,

thanks for help, but my problem still there...

I can´t finde the folders,
/var/mobile/Library/ScummVM
/var/mobile/Library/ScummVM/Preferences

ScummVM didn´t create then, maybe this means something...

thanks.

I have this exact same problem! I'm on a 1.1.4 iPod touch. My games are in /var/mobile/ScummVM. Can anyone here help? I get a "cannot save" error when playing games and it tries to auto save.

Didn't changing the privileges help?

Excuse me for beeing a noob, but how exactly do you do that?
(changing the privileges I mean)

I have a similar problem running 1.1.4.
The Scummvm-program does not seem to have the privileges to write anything to my iphone's memory.
Thus, I can't save :(
The games run fine tough :?

Look at the two links in the second post of this thread. They are not here just for fun ;)

I did the "chmod -R 755 /path/to/games" command in WinSCP, but no luck with the games reappearing. I've looked at the two links, but those seem kind of specific...
