well when your playing a game and you want to save,but the game dont have its own save feature,or it only has a password system.click the files bit select save.cant remember if you have to pick a name for the save state or not.simple.

Save states are only for Sega Genesis.

Sega 32x and Sega CD save states will come later. but Stef has to emulate a bit more. technical stuff.

yes, but standard S-RAM game saves are fully supported (except a few like NBA Jam that have custom S-RAM chips)

the save states will likely be a megabyte or more in size, all the data and regesters it has to keep track of will mean a lot of bytes used.

Sega 32xCD combo games are also not supported, but you probably knew that already.

Stick with the universal S-RAM files, so should one emulator have trouble, you can easily switch to another, like Kega, Ages, or Gens.

glad to be of help
