    Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, but I need some help.

    I was playing a game on SNES9x. My saves have been fine, but one of my computers won't load my latest save. I'm talking about normal/in-game saves, not save states. It goes like this:

    • I started playing on Computer A.
    • Got to World 3 and saved.
    • Transferred the saves to a flash drive, and put them on Computer B.
    • Computer B loaded it just fine, and I continued onto World 4. Saved.
    • Transferred saves to flash drive again, and put them back on Computer A.
    • It would only load World 3.
    • I figured I just did something wrong, so I tried it again.
    • This time, just to make sure, I zipped the entire SNES9x folder on Computer B and transferred that.
    • I put it on Computer A. Now I have the same folder with the same saves, files, and .exe.
    • It still only loads World 3.
    • It loads World 4 on Computer B, but World 3 on Computer A. They're both the same thing.
    Basically, to sum it up: My latest save is World 4. Yet, one of the computers somehow rewinds the save to when I last saved. Or something odd like that. I don't see how it's possible since I literally copy-pasted the folder to my flash drive.

    Is there something I don't know about? Are there "real" saves somewhere else? Is SNES9x intelligent and knows what computer I'm on or something? What the heck is going on?
