How to save games with Dolphin

Dolphin makes it simple to save games since it functions as you would expect. The default location of the folder is in your Documents folder, but you can modify that location using the settings.

If you have a save from another computer or the internet, you can put it in the folder you’ve specified, and it should start loading it as usual.

The Save State feature of emulators allows you to store and resume where you left off in the game so that it will automatically resume when you wish to play it again in the future. This is excellent for older games without automatic or manual saves, which force you to choose a save location to record your progress, or titles with challenging bosses.
