    I've been playing Lufia via Snes9xGX on the Wii.

    Well my brother took his Wii home, so all I have is my memory card with the saves. Is there a way I can keep playing my game on a PC emulator?

    I was using the snapshot feature on Snes9xGX. Apparently, it saved as an .frz file (121KB). There is also a 220KB .png that shows my current position. The image and the .frz file were both modified last night, which was the last time I played. So I don't think I was saving in .srm, since the .srm files haven't been modified in two weeks. Is there any way I can get this .frz file to work with any PC emulator? Or am I screwed and forced to start over?

    No, take the .frz file and change it to ".000 all the up to .009 and place them in the saves folder. If not, load the savestate in Snes9xGx, make an in-game save (.srm), then overwrite the savestate so it keeps the game's memory state in tact. Quit Snes9xGx and copy the .srm file over to your PC.

    I know that, I'm telling him to copy the .frz saves from the SD card, putting them into X:/Snes9x/savestates, then chaging the ".frz" to ".000 through 009. Open the ROM in Snes9x, and press F1 through F9.

    No, you could try renaming it, or use an SRM instead.
