Save states?

Could use a bit of help...

Also incorporating Shining Force Gaiden 1 & Shining Force Gaiden 2 (aka Sword of Hajya).

Save states?

Postby Master of Octopi » Tue Jan 16 2007 9:14pm

Hello. I just started another playthrough for SFCD, and rather than dig out my console, I figured I'd play it on an emulator (less wires). Anywho, I just noticed a problem with save states when using Gens/Gens+: whenever I load one, it basically loads a screen shot with sound. Is there anything I can do, or should I keep it to in-game saves? And if I do have to keep the saves in-game, how long will the save stay there?

Yeah, use the in-game saves. Save states are buggy in SFCD unless you know what you're doing but even so, they can't replace normal saves.

According to the Gens+ manual, Gens+ does not support save states for Sega CD. It surprised me to find that they work at all, never mind that on one occasion I had one work without any apparent bugs.

Yeah, I wrecked my game doing that. I decided to load the Boat fight (Book 1, Battle 1) from the Wodol Scorpion match. All the enemies became puff clouds and the main characters turned into the ones from the woldol match. Save the game as if you were playing it on your genesis.
