Post Is there any way to "extract" save games on a Mac?
Yeah, I was wondering if you could move save games for use on another machine or with another emulator. I've looked around, and the way bsnes stores its savegames yet evades my eye.

Thanks in advance.

Start by searching your entire system for files with the SRM extension (assuming no major modifications were made to BSNES's Mac port).

Only SRM file I can find was, IIRC, generated by SNES9x. And there should be quite a few of them if all the games I saved with Bsnes generated one.

If you're on Windows Vista, don't trust the abominable Windows Search. The Indexing service is completely FUBAR, in my experience. I think Snes9x saves all SRM data in a Saves folder next to the executable. By default, bsnes should save the SRM data next to the ROM it's for.

Hehe, I guess it's pretty late. (and my frustration with Vista's search knows no bounds)

Richard Bannister may have used .sav for the extension, for consistency with his other emulators. Not sure.

It's also possible he uses GZip or somesuch on the saves first. I don't with the Windows port, at least.

It is also worth noting that no other file containing the name of the ROM file (In this case, Terranigma) exists other than folders, ROM itself, zip, etc.

I think he's making a 1-button mouse joke. And missing that Apple finally got with the program and started offering multi-button mice.

Yes. In Finder: 'File->Find...' (⌘F).

What, a person can't live in the past anymore?
Now I have to leave before I take this T to the OT, since I got my two cents in.

My Mac laptop only has one button, but it's not like it's over-exerting to hold control when you once in a blue moon need a control click.

I swear, the guy who came up with the mac's "one button" idea must have been intoxicated at the time.

Mind you, so was Michael Jackson when he decided to make repetition of "you're a vegetable" part of the lyrics in "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'", which is what I'm listening to at the time of posting this. So, for listening to it, I too am surely intoxicated.

I just miss the rad oldschool 3 button mouses, yeah the scroll wheel is a button, but it's just not the same.

I just watched the first episode of the second season of the X-Files, never gets old :D

I often plug a mouse into it, but I generally find the touch pad pretty comfortable, I move around my middle finger and hold my pointing finger over the button.


Though I once bought a mac mouse which had the buttons built-in into a plate under the mouse. Worst fucking mouse I've ever used.
