Q: GAME SAVES?
Did you accidentally delete your saved game in Chrono Trigger? 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.
I have step-by-step directions in my Game Saves Tutorial.
Normally in my RPG shrines I distribute just one collection of saves. For Chrono Trigger I have two collections for you: Jackie's and my own. Read further for their differences.
Jackie is the webmistress of VideoGameSprites.net. Her game saves consist of SRM saves & ZST save state files, and they're captured at the beginning of every chapter. She took the time to gather all secrets and sufficiently level up all the characters. Towards the end she maxed them out. She collected ending states as well. In other words, this is a perfect collection of saves!
My game saves consist of SRM files. I have double the amount of saves than Jackie's, covering more positions throughout the game. I also have more ending states. However, I kind of half-assed through the game and didn't bother to find all the secrets or fully level up my characters (I was in a hurry). That makes my saves slightly more challenging (as if the game wasn't easy enough already).
