KFusion Emulator

Remember when you used to have to play your old Sega Master System and Sega Genesis games until you either killed your character or beat the game? Well, thanks to emulators, those days are over. KFusion is arguably the best emulator for playing Sega Master System and Sega Genesis ROMs on your computer. This tutorial will be covering how to save Sega games with this emulator (using version 3.64).

Saving Your Game Progress

  1. Load your ROM (click the File drop-down menu to select your Load ROM category, then simply find and click the ROM file you want to load).
  2. From drop-down File menu, click on “Save State As.” (Note: If you are playing the game full-screen, simply hit ESC to return to a smaller window with the menu options)
  3. A window will open and give you the option to save as a Genesis State File (.GSX). Simply name the file, select the destination folder, and click save.
  4. The window will close, but as a confirmation, you should see “State Saved” at the bottom right of the game screen for a second or two.
  5. If you just click “Save State” and not “Save State As,” you will likely encounter an error and see “ERROR Saving State!” at the bottom right of the game screen. Be sure to click “Save State As.”

Loading a Saved Game

  1. To load your saved game, simply start the emulator and load the ROM for the corresponding saved game file. When the ROM starts (as a new game), go to the File menu and click “Load State As.” (Not “Load State” or you will likely see the same ERROR message.)
  2. A window will open and you will see the GSX Files (if not, then search for the correct folder that you saved it in).
  3. Click on the saved file for the game, and it should load right where you saved it (paused). At the bottom right, the game screen should say “State Loaded.” Simply un-pause the game and you’re ready to continue right where you left off.
