Question Pokemon Stadium 2 - Save States on pokemon selection screen not working

Error seems specific to this game, so hopefully someone has played this and has an idea.

I've been save stating my way through this for a while, and since I figured out the game decides all the possibilities the second the battle starts, rather than live dice rolls during the battle or something, these states are on the pokemon selection screen for the individual battle, as that's where the state is most advantageous.

For a long time, the save states worked just fine, no issues whatsoever.
Then, about a week or two ago, it started occasionally not working. The file would load partially then seem to get stuck. A bunch of pinkish static would show on the screen and then it would stop. But if I just force quit the program and reloaded the state a few times, it'd figure things out eventually.

Now, it has gotten to the point where the save state will not load at all. The bottom still says loaded state xxxxxxxxxxx.pj2.zip , but the game just legit freezes on the screen it's currently on. The only way to get out is to force quit the program.

It seems to be something specific with how the file is capturing that particular screen, if I save state it somewhere else it works.

I've tried not compressing my save states, but that was an epic fail - it just started saying fatal error whenever I loaded anything, no matter where in the game the state was created.
I've also tried starting the game, resetting it via F1, then loading the save state - but half the time the *reset* crashes the game, and the other half the reset works but the save state still crashes the game.

I don't know what's happening, particularly since everything was working for some time, and then it stopped working, and because it only affects states saved at a particular location in the game. Any ideas are appreciated.
