Been trying to figure this out for a few weeks now, and am totally frustrated. I would appreciate any help received. I have a Pokemon FireRed game on [an online emulator site that I now know is wares], and can save a xxx.swf.save state file when I click on the 'save state' icon at the bottom of the screen. I understand that I cannot save from the menus inside the game. I am able to load those .save files up on a different PC or a Mac and continue the game. However, I have been unable to load the .save files into a ROM emulator like VisualBoyAdvance.exe, and have tried many directions for how to do so: rename them as .sav AND .sa1 files is the most common one I have seen. The reason I want to know how to do this is to be able to trade Pokemon inside the games per the guide at [redacted] but I have been unable to load a saved game. As a result of trying to figure this out, I know now that there are save files and save states. I know more about the inner workings of GBA and emulators than I every knew existed. But my daughter really, really wants to be able to do this. Please help me figure this out. A delightful alternative of doing through emulator.online would be lovely, too. Thank you!
