Notes about the GS8 file extension:
To open this file type, a required software must be installed. Without it you only see a Windows message "The following file cannot be opened
" (Windows 7) or "How do you want to open this file?
" (Windows 10) if you double-click the file. There click on "More apps"
and choose a suitable software to view such files on your PC or from email attachments.
The GS8 file type is primarily associated with 'Genecyst'. Genecyst is a Sega Genesis system emulator released in 1997. The number behind the .GS# file extension indicates the save state (current game state at time of the save) number. Savestates are compatible with the Gens emulator and probably all of its variants. This should apply to any saved Sega Genesis games played in an emulator.
