Auto-saving is available for the Steam version of the games. Both Final Fantasy X and Final Fantasy X-2 will save automatically when the player enter a location or progress the story by watching a cutscene. The auto-save slot is separated from the other save files. An icon of a chocobo will appear at the bottom-right corner of the screen when an auto-save is in progress.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

The game has an auto-save system. The game is automatically saved each time the player enters a new screen. The auto-save slot is separated from the other save files and the game maintains the system of save crystals, gate crystals and Crystalbugs. As a safety measure, the game will not auto-save when moving to a screen in which the player is immediately confronted by a boss, such as the King Bomb.

The player can exploit the auto-save function for item farming. When an enemy dies, the player can collect its loot. With the auto-save, the player can try repeatedly at the same loot till get the loot drop they want. If the loot drop wasn't the desired item, the player can reload the auto-save and kill the enemy again, for a chance of a different loot drop. The player can even time their zoning out of the area so that the enemy only needs one more hit to die. This trick is useful for enemies that rarely spawn or that take a long time to kill.

Additionally, the game will auto-save at the beginning of each floor of Trial Mode.
