Save Game\States Manager - vsub_ - 08-13-2013 10:03 PM

Here is another nice tool from it in the ppsspp directory(where the memstick folder is)

  • Deletes selected save states or game saves by pressing the Delete Button(for safety reasons,they are delete to the recycle bin)
  • List with all of your games(read the Games file(normal text file)in the same directory)
  • If the Games.txt file don't exist,the manager will create the file by scanning your SAVEDATA directory(this doesn't create a complete list of your games,you have to add manually the games that don't have save data created,otherwise you won't be able to see the save states for those games)
    The format is
    Game ID=Game Title
    You can get the ID when you start the game(the PPSSPP window title contain the ID)
  • If the file exist and there are games that are not in the file,by scanning the SAVEDATA directory,they will also be added to the list(you can edit the Games.txt file later if you want to display different name(for example English name on Japanese game)
  • The window is minimized to the system tray and restored by single click
  • Show the last modified date of every save game and save state
  • Double clicking on the save,opens the save folder
  • Single clicking on the save,shows the save info(what you see when you load your save)and icon
  • Create save state preview while ingame by pressing F2(the key for creating save states)...this feature requires Irfan View
    At startup(first time)the program will ask for the path to it.You can either click No to disable the feature or Yes to set the path.If you cancel while selecting the path,the feature will be disable until you restart the program.
    If you decide to not use the feature but later decide to use it,open the Games.txt file and delete the first line(not just deleting the text but the whole line...moving the rest of the text one line up) can also manually add the path to it by placing it in the first line
    The only thing you need is the exe(you can copy it and then uninstall the program if you don't like it)
  • While switching to another save state slot:
    1.If preview exist,it will show it at the upper left corner
    2.If save state exist but there is no preview,it says that the slot is used
    3.If save state don't exist,it says that the slot is empty.
  • Clicking on the save state,shows image preview of it
  • Pressing the Home keyboard button while ingame executes one of the 3 above
  • While the window is minimized,when you restore it,if a game is running,it will automatically display all existing saves and save states of that game(you can execute that function if you press F5 when the manager window is active)
  • You can see which ppsspp version create the save requires at least ppsspp v0.8.1-642

PS.If the slot number info don't match while pressing F3,switch to slot 1 and restart the tool(I added some safety checks for this to not happen but still)
Again,the same program complains

You can see which ppsspp version create the save requires at least ppsspp v0.8.1-642

Added some safety checks and little rewriting(newer ppsspp version were not compatible the some functions)
Also if you start the manager and run ppsspp from a folder that is not the same folder as the manager,the save state preview creation\preview will be disabled for that ppsspp instance

not bad...

RE: Save Game\States Manager - vsub_ - 08-14-2013 11:03 AM

If the devs decide to add save state preview feature like this one,I'll edit the program to read the images created by ppsspp but for now,I need to use Irfan View to create the preview

PS.I made this tool because I constantly change ppsspp version and i don't know what state to detele and what to remove...also which save to delete and which to keep(displaying the save info is very useful part of the tool)

Nice Smile. Forgive mine curious, what language do you use for creating this tool?

RE: Save Game\States Manager - vsub_ - 01-02-2014 07:28 AM

Autohotkey work only on Windows for PC,which means I can't port the manager to any other OS

RE: Save Game\States Manager - Ekamown - 01-04-2015 09:53 AM

BTW for those who play PPSSPP on Android, is it possible to place SAVE DATA to external memory (SD Card) instead of internal memory (Phone)?

AFAIK it works with games ISO/UMD but not its save data. I would like to place INSTALL DATA of some games on external memory, as the internal memory is almost running out...

RE: Save Game\States Manager - Mynamea - 08-04-2018 02:55 PM

Is it possible to edit save data by the way like in PC?
