I am using the VisualBoyAdvance emulator and I am trying to find the save file location (not the save state location, the one from the actual game.)

The game is Final Fantasy VI if it helps. I have looked everywhere and can't seem to find anything.

  • I've corrected "virtual boy advance" to "VisualBoyAdvance." I believe this is the emulator you meant as I can't find any mention of a 'virtual boy advance' emulator by searching the web. If this is incorrect, just edit your question to correct it. May 11, 2019 at 6:15

I just tested this one and the save file is located in the same folder as where your ROM files are. The extension is .sav. A save using VBA, not in-game, ends with the extension .sgm.


The save files are in your ROMs folder and it has the .sgm extension or the .save extension. They both must have the same name as the ROM to work.

  • romname.gba or romname.zip <-- Rom File.
  • romname.sgm <-- Quick Save File.
  • romname.sav (VBA 1.7.2) or romname.sa1 (VBA 1.7.2 Link) <-- Normal Save File.
