I am trying to transfer some saved games (not save states) from my PC to my GCW and I'm not sure which directory I should place them in. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

For ohboy, they are in /media/data/local/home/.ohboy/saves/

For PocketSNES, they are in /media/data/local/home/.snes96_snapshots/

For ReGBA, i think they are in /media/data/local/home/.gpsp/

For Fceux, i don't exactly know, but they may be in /media/data/local/home/.fceux/sav/

I was trying to figure this out too.... I found the saves for my games on the GCW now, but they aren't loading when I open the game. Are they suppose to go somewhere in particular? Thanks in advance.

They're supposed to go where the emulator makes them, which is also where the emulator reads them. I know of no bug that prevents any of the emulators being discussed in this thread from being able to read save games that they themselves wrote, in the location they expect to have written them to (i.e. hi-ban's reply #1).

What is the bug you are experiencing exactly? Load a game on an emulator, save it, and later load the same game and it does not load the saved data? Which game? Which emulator? Details!

Well I have games that were played on my PC and I wanted those saves transferred to my GCW. Games like Metroid Fusion, Metroid Zero Mission, and Mother 3 for GBA using ReGBA; and then Earthbound, Super Mario World, Super Metriod and Star Ocean for SNES using PocketSNES. None of these are save states by the way, just the saves made in the save file of the game itself.

Names of files must match. For ReGBA, the size of the save must also match with one it makes.

Where your game is FILENAME.EXT, the saves must be named FILENAME.srm for PocketSNES and FILENAME.sav for ReGBA.
