(Dude. If that’s not gonna get me sued in the US, I don’t know what is.)
First of all, don’t use violence. If it doesn’t fit, there might be a reason.
|This is the slot for *Genesis cartridges.|
|This is the *SNES slot.|
|The artwork must always be facing outwards.|
Simply associate .sfc files with the *SNES emulator of your choice, and .bin ones with your favorite *Genesis emulator.
All the emulator really needs to know is where to find the savegame (SRAM) file for each game.
- Connect the Retrode and find out its path, or drive letter. Here, let’s assume it is F:
- Remove any cartridges from their slots.
- Start your emulator. Here, let’s assume it’s snes9x for Windows.
- Open the settings dialog, and tell it where to find SRAM files. Here, we would first select Saves from the drop-down list, then enter F: into the edit field marked in red.
- (If your emulator doesn’t have a GUI, edit its config file accordingly.)
- Quit the emulator.
- Insert a game cartridge.
- Load the ROM file from the Retrode into the emulator, and see if the savegame gets loaded too.
