Q: GAME SAVES?
Did you accidentally delete your saved game in Secret in Mana? Do you want to skip certain parts of the game? Do you want to search for specific game sprites to capture? Whatever the case may be, these game saves are here to save the day. ^_^
Q: WHAT ARE THESE?
These are SRM files and ZST files.
• SRM game save files are compatible with any SNES emulator. These are the files that store the native data of the game via the 3 save slots. And of the SRM files in this section, each save slot contains a different saved position.
• ZST save state files are only compatible with ZSNES and Snes9X. Unlike the SRM files, they consist of just 1 saved position. Their advantage is that they instantly bring you to the given saved position, unlike SRM files which require you to start up the game normally.
These saves were captured from "Secret of Mana: Enhanced", so they will only work properly with "Secret of Mana: Enhanced". Why? Well, most people who play Secret of Mana via video game emulation play the enhanced version. It's only practical to capture from this version only. If you don't have it you can download it in Downloads.
Contained in these zip archives are text files containing a detailed description about each save. This description lists the save's location, current status of the plot, current character levels, current weapon levels, current equipment, current inventory, current GP, and current essential weapon orb.
TWO SETS OF SAVES!
Normally in my RPG shrines I distribute just one collection of saves. For Secret of Mana I have two collections for you: OhNoMelon's saves and Jackie's saves.
• OhNoMelon's Game Saves - These consist of just SRM saves. This collection covers more positions than Jackie's. Included with each zip archive are text files containing a detailed description about each save. This description lists the save's location, current status of the plot, current character levels, current weapon levels, current equipment, current inventory, current GP, and current essential weapon orb.
• Jackie's Game Saves - She is the webmistress of VideoGameSprites.net. Her collection of saves consist of ZSNES ZST save states & SRM saves. Versus OhNoMelon's saves, Jackie's includes “God Mode” saves which have the characters hacked to have every stat maxed out. She also has an ending ZST state. It's hard to say if her collection is better than OhNoMelon's. I'll leave that distinction up to you.
I have step-by-step directions on how to use these saves in my Game Saves Tutorial.
