    I have a HTC Evo and I was playing Chrono Trigger on SuperGnes. I saved the game and if I reset the game the save will stay there but when I load another game and go back to Chrono Trigger the saved games are gone... the same thing happens with Snesoid and other Roms besides Chrono Trigger. (Super Mario World, Breath of Fire, Breath of Fire 2)

    Any advice?

    You did not mention if you have Lite or Paid. You need to have the paid versions to save states.

    If you have the paid versions, I have no clue.

    Honestly just drop the few bucks. The app is good enough that it's worth paying to support the devs.

    I was under the impression that save states(on the fly saving) were disabled in the light version but in game saves worked (the games built in save)

    My guess would be the free game simply disables any write access, which would eliminate any save ability.

    Honestly! you do know that the lite version is there, so that you can get an idea of how the emulator works on your phone, and lets you give it a test run to determine if its worth it to you to purchase.

    Please, Please, Please support the Devs, and purchase the full app. I just noticed to day that the lite version has >250,000 downloads, while the paid version only has between 50,000 - 250,000. If these Devs cant make a decent living writing this stuff for us, they will stop doing it.

    I planned on buying the app I just wanted to make sure that i wasnt having a problem with my phone being unable to save the "ingame saves" before a purchased an application that would do me no good if it was a problem with the phone.

    Yep, totally worth it. I downloaded all the free emulators, tried them out, then paid for my favorites and deleted the free versions that I didn't pay for.

    What does the game need to be saved as? I know .7z games need to be unzipped (speaking of which, does anyone know of a free unzipper on a mac?), and i also have a .sfc game. Will that work right away?

    No, it is NOT worth buying to support the devs. Emulators have been FREE for at least a decade on the PC.Yet now just because the emulator is on a phone people should pay for the same stuff?

    Negative.

    The free versions can't even natively save in game. How lame is that. There is a difference between save states, and a game save. Save states, are "snapshots" of the game taken by the emulator at it's current placement. They can be taken at any time and will reload the game to the exact state it was when saved. If a dev want's to charge for that, fine. But a game save is the game saving info in game, how do you remove a feature from the game itself. That's bull.

    The only way I would ever purchase an emulator is if it were released by the company that designed that platform in the first place. So if Nintendo went out and made a reasonably priced snes emulator I'd gladly pay for it. But I refuse to buy something from someone using other people intellectual property. The dev may not be selling roms, but he/she knows full well people are illegally downloading roms to use on his/her product. And it was created with that intent and they are making money of off it. They are making money off Nintendo, and I'm pretty sure he/she isn't sending them a check.

    I will not be buying this, and I will be emailing all the companies involved to see if this can be stopped. I would rather it be shut down, than pay for what should be free. The only reasons emulators got by on the PC as long as they did was because they were free, and thats how it should be now. Unless it was an official emulator, I wouldn't mind throwing Nintendo a couple dollars for infinite nostalgia.

    Don't like it then write your own emulator or just don't use it and quit *****ing. I can't stand that holier than thou ****.
