A while ago we had a lot of posts about people's saves mysteriously disappearing after they started using save states (like they were corrupted or something else). I thought they were forgetting about F4, but apparently there IS a weird sort of bug going on. While going through a whirlwind tour of Suikoden 2, I saved a savestate accidentally (accidentally brushed against the key on the way to the escape button, par for the course...). I continued on for four hours and then shut off ePSXe. Returning an hour later, I discovered my save mysteriously "vanished." The save listed now was the save I HAD had several hours before. Trying a number of saves with various mixtures of saving and loading, I eventually just forgot about it and went on with using save states. After a while, I decided to kill myself for game reasons and because I was interested in testing a hypothesis about where in the world the mysterious game saves went to. Lo and behold, after dying and going back to the main screen and selecting to continue a game, the recent save I made came up instead of the ages old save. Maybe save states prevent writing saves in specific games? Hmm.
