Can't save game

Recommended Posts

I have never  been able to save a game.  When I hit F5 or shift F5 I get the attached error message.  I'm using Windows 10 home.  Anyone that can help....thanks!

The original version of Gens does not allow saving during netplay.

I edited Gens to allow it, and that custom version of Gens is included in the emulator package on the http://www.nhl94online.com/ website.

In the package, instead of running gens.exe, run gens-netplaysave.exe

Just pulled it down - coachmac and I were having an offline discussion and he thought that might be my issue.  I downloaded and will see if it works upon my next game.  Thanks!!

Just visited with Viz on discord and was thinking this was his problem.

Question.

Why do we even include the other version?

gens-netplaysave.exe

Yep.  As Aqua discovered - You need to use 6 button mapping for most ROMS's but the netplay version of GENS will not really let you do 6 button mapping for a 3 button controller.   Original GENS makes it easier.

Not sure what you mean here.  You can map the additional buttons to your keyboard if anything.

Oh just that the button mapping interface is different in each version.  In regular gens it doesnt make you map every button the way the netplay version does.  Easier than hitting random keys for buttons that dont exist on your controller but ya that would work if the netplay version was used to map buttons
