Urgh, yet another SF problem from me. Oh well.
I had SF working fine, but I restored my comp and lost most of my gaming stuff due to utter laziness about backing up specific things. :p

Well now the save state for SF1 is giving me troubles. The game runs fine; the normal save/load works fine. But when I load a state save, the screen is black.

Note it doesn' freeze and go black; I can hear the music/sfx running in the back ground, and I can hear the sounds of me going through the menu or walking into battles. Just the screen stays black. (is this how a blind man feels playing sf1?...sorry, that was bad)

Anyway, I had the problem the first time I played this game, but I thought changing to Petes D3D was what did the trick. Now I see it isn't...

Any ideas/helps/rants? :(

First idea: don't use save states :p .

Most probably you saved on a part where the screen is supposed to be drawn already, or the textures are supposed to be loaded, or something like that. If you can go to another place, or pause and the unpause, or something that would make it change the screen to something wich would make the game load the area again, it *might* give you some result. Failing that, start over suing exclusively mamory card saves.

Like said, sometimes it's better not to use savestates since they can corrupt your saves.
But if you DO want to use them, which I can imagine, make sure you do regular saves as well, to prevent the loss of progres.
