Game Saves

Final Fantasy IV Game Saves for the SNES version and GBA version


Q: Game saves?

Did you accidentally delete your saved game in Final Fantasy 4 for SNES or GBA? 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 save files for SNES and GBA...

• The SNES saves consist of SRM and ZST files. The SRM files (stands for saved RAM) are in-game saves (when you save at a save point) and they're compatible with any SNES emulator. The ZST saves are save state files that are only compatible with the "ZSNES" SNES emulator.

• The GBA saves consist of SAV and SGM files. The SAV files are in-game saves (when you save at a save point) and they're compatible with any GBA emulator. The SGM saves are save state files that are only compatible with the "Visual Boy Advance" GBA emulator.


You've got options! I have two sets of SNES saves here and one set of GBA saves. (Note: They're all based on the NA releases)

1. Jackie's SNES Saves
Jackie, the webmistress of, collected 'perfect' game saves for the SNES version. 'Perfect' in the sense that she sufficiently leveled up all her characters, found all the secrets, and went through all the side quests. The majority of her saves also include a 'God Mode' option that have everything maxed out. She offers both SRM saves and ZST states.

2. My SNES Saves
I collected my own set of saves for the SNES version. My saves aren't perfect like Jackie's. If you just want a regular, casual playthrough of Final Fantasy IV, then my saves are for you. Also, I collected more saves than Jackie so I have more game positions to offer. As for formats, I only offer SRM saves.

3. Jackie's GBA Saves
Jackie collected another perfect collection of game saves, this time for the GBA version. It's the same deal as the SNES saves: they're perfect, she offers 'God Mode' alternatives, and she offers both SAV and SGM saves.

SNES saves only work with FF4 Retranslation!

If you've checked out this whole site you would know I talk quite a bit about the FF4 Retranslation. Well, the SNES saves were grabbed from it, so they'll only work with the FF4 Retranslation. Why? Because everyone who plays SNES FF4 through video game emulation uses the FF4 Retranslation.


I have step-by-step directions in my Game Saves Tutorial.
