    Unhappy Trouble Saving SNES ROM Data

    If this is the wrong place to post/against the rules, just let me know and I'll do what I need to do.

    I recently asked a friend to soft mod my Wii, and load it with an SNES emulator with a public US translation of an old Japanese Super Famicom game. The game works great, but I'm not able to save. I'm using SNES 9x (same thing I use on my PC) and the game won't save to the SD card or do a screenshot save.

    I've tried every imaginable setting in the preferences menu. Does anyone here have any idea what I should do or can any of you point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!


    I've used the search and tried everything. The error I get says can't save and gives me path of FAT:/something/something

    Just a tip but with most apps you download there will be a readme file with it that answers questions like this. This is what youor SD card should look like.

    SD:\apps\snes9xgx (cointains the boot.dol, icon.png, etc..)
    SD:\snes9xgx\roms
    SD:\snes9xgx\saves

    Just like the roms folder you will have to create a saves folder too.

    Thanks for the tip, Krafter. I've already got my folders set up that way and still getting the same reaction :/

    Then I'm guessing that the paths are out of wack in the settings. Check the settings again and make sure they match exactly the way you have it setup on your SD card.

    +1 remember Snes9x will NOT create the directories if they don't exist at the specified location in snes9x settings. It took me about 6 times looking in settings to realize my saves folder should be at sd\snes9xgx\saves instead of sd\apps\snes9xgx\saves and i've been doing this crap for dam near 20 years.
