Moving Save States Between Emulators/Platforms?

by racketboy Tue Apr 01, 2008 4:23 pm

How possible/practical is this?

I know a lot of emulators for different platforms are based off a popular PC or open-source emulator... so would that mean that many save state files may be able to transfered to different emulators?

I've done it between PCs before, but wondered about syncing saves between a portable and a PC.

Just a thought....

things like .sav files are pretty much universal, so they can be transfered between whatever you want (that's using the games actual save feature). as for actual save states it depends on the emulator itself. for example: if you use snes9x on the pc and you would like to play it on your psp with the snes9x variant it is possible.

I'm not sure about the DS and GBA. As far as I know, those handhelds run emulators as if they were actually DS/GBA roms. For instance, when I use PocketNES on my GBA, it keeps all the saves for the NES games in one GBA .sav file. I'm not sure how you would extract or insert individual NES saves from that when going back and forth from the PC.
