    Can someone explain to me what the difference between saving a snapshot is and what using the SRAM save system is? And in which instance you would use which one?

    SRAM is the actual save, that every commercial game has. You can use this instead of choosing 'save game' in the game.
    A snapshot is the 'fake' saving. It allows you to save and load at any time and it will restore exactly to how it was.
    Always use safe to snapshot [​IMG]

    gotchya....kind of. Can you totally use only the in game save feature of a game? Basically like you are playing the actual cart and had no benefits of the snapshot saving feature? If so how would you do this? Do you have to use the in game save feature, and THEN the sram so that it saves the in game save for you?

    the sram is used to store the save games.
