Did you ever run out of backup memory?

Did your backup memory cartridge every died?

Have you ever wondered why some files are so big that you can't get them out of the backup memory cart?

Did you ever want to upgrade your Action Replay's firmware without burning a seperate CD-R for each type?

Did you ever think the Saturn built-in file manager is too slow in handling?

Did you ever want to load save games from CD?

Of course you did!

Now here is your solution: the Save Game Manager for SEGA Saturn will give you more backup memory FOR FREE!

What is the SGM?

a full featured file browser

a save game compressor (using BZip2 compression)

an Action Replay reflash tool (using arflash by ExCyber)

much more than any other similar tool on Saturn

A core feature is the usage of faster virtual drives which are not limited in number and size (only by Saturn RAM).

The very efficient compression BZip2 is used and because of it's memory requirement it's a little wonder to have it run on Saturn. It uses almost every byte of RAM available in the Saturn, even external RAM carts.

Have a look at bucanero's VMZip app for Dreamcast, which implements the save game compression idea, too.
