How to create a save state

I understand that Retroplayer can create save states of a game. How do I do this? Is there a key I can hit during game play that will save and restore the state?

I'm using OSMC (Kodi 20.1) on a Vero 4K, using a an 8-bitdo gamepad for playing snes games using the snes9x emulator.


(I largely copied this thread from 2019: . Since then, kodi has gotten a savestate manager.  I assume therefore multiple savestates can be made?)
The Save State Manager, developed for Google Summer of Code, was merged in Kodi v20 (and fixed in v20.1).

After playing a game, some savestates will be created. When you open the game again, instead of playing the game immediately, your recent savestates are shown, allowing you to continue where you left off.

Here's what the savestate manager looks like when launching a game in v20.1:
