Tutorial - Savegame Codes
Many Super NES games, such as Super Mario World, allow you to save your progress inside the game using battery-backed RAM. VirtualSuperNES allows you to access this information again using the Save Code system.
Step 1: Selecting a Game
Games hat support saving your progress have a blue disk icon by the name, as a handy reminder of which games have this feature. Games without this icon do not support saving. For this example, let's play Super Mario World.

Step 2: New Games & Existing Games
When you click on the link above to Super Mario World, you'll get a page that says "Save Code Checkpoint." If you're starting a new game, click "Start a new game." If you have a save code from a previous session, enter the 12-digit save code into the box, and click "Resume my saved game."
Example Save Code for Super Mario World
This save code starts after having beaten Iggy Koopa in the first castle. The Yellow Switch has been activated.
Step 3: Saving Your Progress
For your save code to be updated, you will need to save your progress inside the game.
After saving your progress inside the game, press ESC on the keyboard and select "Save Game." Wait a few seconds to allow the system to process. Your session will end, and you will be redirected to the Save Code Checkpoint with a new 12-digit save code. Congratulations, you've saved your game.
This code will expire in 60 days. Play again soon to receive a new save code, which will extend the expiration date.
