    Question I would like to know on how to use the Super Nintendo game saves on the Gamefaqs site

    I was on the GameFaqs website, and I downloaded the save game of Donkey Kong Country 2 game save file, except that it was in a .bin format, which I have no idea on how to open. And I also have the Snes 9x emulator on my Wii, which has the homebrew channel installed on it. Now it seems to me that the Snes 9x emulator on the Wii doesn't show up the .bin file for some reason. It only shows up the roms, which are the .smc files. All day yesterday I was trying to load the bin files onto my wii, so I could get the saves to load in the emulator, but I just had no luck. And I am upset with this! The .bin file just won't show up in the Snes 9x emulator on my Wii. I also tried using the Backup Manager Gx as well, but I wasn't so sure on how to use that either. So what I am doing wrong here? Please let me know on how to get this working, that's all I can say. Because I am very disappointed and upset. I just to play Donkey Kong Country 2 with the saved game, that is all I want here. So please kindly advise me on how to do this correctly, step-by-step the easy way, so I get a better understanding on how to do this. I tried to do this all day long, but I had no luck with it. The Snes 9x emulator wouldn't show the .bin file. So please get back to me as soon as possible, and just explain to me on how to do this for me. Because then I would be much happier, and I would be playing my Donkey Kong Country game saves once I get this resolved. So please get back to me soon. So thank you very much!

    You're not supposed to see the saves, they load when you load the game. That said, I believe SNES 9X GX required them to be .sav format, you could try renaming them to .sav. Be sure the save and the rom names match.

    Example: DonkeyKongCountry.smc and DonkeyKongCounty.sav

    Hope this helps.

    If I spelled something wrong, I'll just blame it on auto-correct

    Thanks for the help. So the saves should not be saved as .srm, but should be as .sav? I will try that. I am trying to load a Donkey Kong Country 2 101% game save srm file from Zophar's domain site. So I should change the .srm to .sav instead? I just hope that this works. Because I have tried so many things, and nothing ever worked for me. I know that I am not supposed to see the saves though. So where should the 101% game save be then? Like whenever I load up the game, I do not see it say 101% at the screen where it shows the game save. It always shows blank lines. And that's where I get upset. So I hope you're right on that one. So just let me know if I should change the srm to sav instead then. Because I hope that works out for me. (Fingers crossed.) Just let me know if that's right. Please get back to me soon, and let me know. So thank you very much!

    SRAM I believe is acceptable as well, you said they were .bin though. As for where the saves go you would have to check the apps settings, I believe the default is sd/snes9x/saves.
