reicast emu.cfg does not save a command line
Hello, I'm having trouble editing a line from Reicast's emu.cfg, with this command line being:

Dreamcast.Cable = 3

I want to just put "0" instead of "3" and save, this option is to fix some graphics bugs that some games may show, but when I start Reicast, I see that this option is never saved and always returns the original configuration .
rm -rf /home/pi/.config/reicast/emu.cfg
sudo ./ reicast configure
sudo nano /opt/retropie/configs/dreamcast/emu.cfg
error in sudo: ./ command not found
sudo ~/RetroPie-Setup/ reicast configure
I've done all the steps and the command line is not overwritten in emu.cfg when reicast starts
You will probably have to tweak /opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/ to get your parameters working. We might improve the script for the upcoming update, but it wont be now. I gave it a try from SSH, and parameters seem to have been accepted

aoss /opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/reicast -config config:homedir=/home/pi -config audio:backend=oss
-config audio:disable=0 -config config:image="/home/pi/RetroPie/roms/dreamcast/sa.cdi" -config config:Dreamcast.Cable=3

Which command line do I need to edit inside
in the last section, the one starting with params. You can add extra flags to that line i believe
I do not know how to do the programming for this script
sudo nano /opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/

last section should be:

params=(-config config:homedir=$HOME -config x11:fullscreen=1 -config config:Dreamcast.Cable=3)
getAutoConf reicast_input && params+=($(mapInput))
[[ -n "$AUDIO" ]] && params+=(-config audio:backend=$AUDIO -config audio:disable=0)
[[ -n "$ROM" ]] && params+=(-config config:image="$ROM")
if [[ "$AUDIO" == "oss" ]]; then
  aoss "$rootdir/emulators/reicast/bin/reicast" "${params[@]}" >/dev/null
  "$rootdir/emulators/reicast/bin/reicast" "${params[@]}" >/dev/null
