Welcome in PPCenter !


I'm running out of free time and motivation to continue Saturn projects. As a consequence I shall not be able to reply emails, especially the ones about Pseudo Saturn Kai not working on your cartridge or not supporting a specific game. So rather than emailing me, please instead refer to Pseudo Saturn Kai thread in segaxtreme forums which shall already contain all the information you're looking for and even more.

Development and maintenance of Saturn projects for all theses years was an healthy source of fun and change of mind for me and it's regrettable that everything has to come to such an end. I'll be back when situation may become better for me, and in the meanwhile I whish you happy playing and/or hacking with your favorite console !

Last but not least I would like to thank antime, CyberWarriorX, Darius, Deunan, IGK/Dezaemon DB, mrkotfw, privateye, Rockin'-B, Stac and vbt who were a great source of inspiration and help around my Saturn projects ♪

Saturn Saves Data

Saturn Save Data

Here is the place where I gather the save data for Saturn games.
Theses save data can be used with Save Game Manager available with Pseudo Saturn Kai, or with the great ss-save-parser tool made by hitomi2500.

Saves for Shining Force 3 (scenarios 1 to 3) with each characters competences pushed to their maximum #smile#
Two saves are available per scenario : first one is before fighting final boss, allowing extra leveling up, and the second one is after defeating final boss, so that it can be used to start next scenario.
More information is available here (in French).

Want more saves !

There are more save data available, but I can't update this page for each save data #zzz#
All save data can be found in Pseudo Saturn Kai Save Data Manager and Firmware Flasher utility.
Please follow the steps below in order to import saves for your favorite games #smile#

Save data import steps :
1. Download Pseudo Saturn Kai latest version.
(latest version is the first item in the download list)
2. Burn pskai_sdm_flasher.iso (Pseudo Saturn Kai Save Data Manager and Flasher utility) to a CD-R (not needed if you're using an emulator).
3. Run (or emulate) Pseudo Saturn Kai Save Data Manager and Flasher utility.
4. From Save Data Manager main menu, select "Save Data Import" item.
5. From file browser, select your favorite game's save data dump file, and import it to "internal" (Saturn's internal backup memory) device, or "cartridge" if you're using a backup memory cartridge.

Notes:

- Please DON'T swap cartridges when your Saturn is powered on !
  This may break your Saturn, or your cartridge, or both #crash#
- It is possible to import save data to official backup memory cartridge.
- It is not possible to import save data to Action Replay backup memory.

Save data import steps when using Gamer's Cartridge :
1. Download Pseudo Saturn Kai latest version.
(latest version is the first item in the download list)
2. From this archive, copy SAVES folder to your SD card root folder.
Directory tree should be something like this :
[SD card]
SAVES
  + Botchok
  + cafealpha
(etc)
3. Insert SD card into your cartridge, plug cartridge, turn on Saturn.
4. From firmware main menu, select "Save Data Manager" item.
5. From Save Data Manager main menu, select "Save Data Import" item.
6. From file browser, select your favorite game's save data dump file, and import it to "cartridge" (SD card) device.

Extra : some (not all) save data can also be found in "RomFs" device.
"RomFs" points to cartridge ROM, and consequently copying SAVES folder to your SD card is not necessary in this case.

Want to contribute ?

Do you have save data for Saturn you want to share ? No problem, I can host your save data here #smile#
Any format is accepted, from data generated by emulators, to data you dumped from your favorite console.
If you want to send me Saturn save data, please contact me.
The only thing I ask in exchange is the right to host your save data here and also in Pseudo Saturn Kai Save Data Manager utility.
