i'm curious as to the technical reasons for savestates not working

If this was a feature hacked into the game I must know how this was done. They make games too easy for lazy people. I hate save states and think that any game that can't be beaten without them is crap.

As far as I know, the "no save state" thing is something the game has originally, and it causes some problems (one of them related to a password that won't accept for some reason when you use save-states. others being text glitches, for example).

Also as far as I know, it's present in the sequel because of the "real time clock" feature can create problems using save-states. In both cases is logical, as these games weren't intended to be played with emulators, lol.

I don't like save states that much either, they usually remove a lot of the challenge of most games, I would go as far to say that they can ruin the experience of a game if you're playing it for the first time, although of course it's only my opinion, and they are very welcome for games that can't save or don't have passwords, and you need to quit fast, or for testing purposses, for example.

Super Shell Monsters Story thankfully has "save spots" for dungeons or caves and the posibility of warping outside of most places so you can save on the overworld.
I'm off for some time. If for some weird, strange, and important reason, you need to talk to me, just send me a PM and probably I'll read it whenever I come back.

Spoiler:
Are you talking about that npc with sheeps that sometimes appears on the overworld?

S/he doesn't have anything to do about it. I was talking about an NPC that is located in the Waterfall caves, but outside of the caves themselves, in the area where you access the three caves. He's near a shell save point, and he asks to join you, and you need to say yes an then explore the left cave.

Spoiler:
I DON'T see no guy near the shell point.

Whatever.  If some people want to use them, so be it.  Who cares?  Does not mean you are "lazy".  It could also mean you are busy and don't always have the time to play until the next save point.  Regardless.  chill out.  It doesn't make one better or worse of a gamer.  People will find their own way to play.

Love this translation.  So glad the characters don't sound like mindless caveman, ala glory of herc. 3.
