Q: GAME SAVES?
Did you accidentally delete your saved game in Final Fantasy 3 for SNES? 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?
Each save is an *.srm file (compatible with any SNES emulator).
I have step-by-step directions in my Game Saves Tutorial.
I have two different sets of game saves here: Jackie's Perfect Game Saves and My Game Saves.
Option 1: Jackie is the webmistress of VideoGameSprites.net. Her perfect game saves are... well... they're perfect! She's done everything that can be done at each save point in the game (items, rages, spells, lores, etc.). In other words, it's a perfect playthrough. Each of her saves are located in save slot 1 within the game (ignore slots 2 and 3). To learn more about her saves download any of her saves and read the ReadMe file in the zip.
Option 2: My game saves are not 100% perfect as Jackie's are. They're probably 80% perfect. In other words, it's a casual playthrough from someone who's played the game to death. I only obtained the items/equipment/spells/abilities that I felt were worth having for beating the game. Also, in my saves I grouped them together by using up all three in-game save slots.
