What is a .SA1 file?

The file extension .SA1 is associated with a Game Boy Emulator Save File. This type of file is created by programs that emulate, or mimic, the original Game Boy gaming console on a computer. Emulators like VisualBoyAdvance and TGB Dual use .SA1 files to save the current state of a game. This means that all the game information, including the player's progress, settings, and in-game location, is stored in this file.

When you save your game using an emulator, it generates a .SA1 file. This file allows you to close the emulator and later reopen it to continue playing the game from exactly where you left off, without losing any progress. This is particularly useful for games that either do not have built-in save features or for players who want to save their game at specific points not allowed by the game itself.

Additionally, .SA1 files can be useful when you want to transfer your game progress from one computer to another, or between different emulator programs. For example, if you start playing a game on VisualBoyAdvance on one computer, you can transfer the .SA1 file to another computer using TGB Dual and continue playing from the same point.

To open a .SA1 file, you will need to use a Game Boy emulator such as VisualBoyAdvance or TGB Dual. These programs can be downloaded and installed on your computer. Once installed, you can open the emulator, select the option to load a saved game, and then choose the .SA1 file you want to open. This will load the game at the saved state, allowing you to continue playing from where the save file was created.
