Snes9x to bsnes(-plus) Savestate Converter
« on: February 11, 2018, 03:02:11 pm »
Is anyone aware of a tool that converts snes9x savestates to bsnes-plus's savestate format? I don't see anything the utilities section and Google hasn't found anything useful. I just want to check before I go off and start writing a custom tool.

Thanks!

There is no such tool as far as I'm aware. Mostly, I believe, because the bsnes save format is not exactly set in stone and upstream changes it when needed, thereby invalidating old saves. Moreover, from what I recall, the data in said savestates varies depending on the core used (performance, balanced or accuracy). So writing a "one size fits all" conversion solution might be tricky.
