UAE4ARM and Save States

Wondering if someone can help me with my Amiga Save State problem...I am using
UAE4ARM(I know, I know, you will probably say "use
Amiberry") to play an Amiga game this evening (Super League Manager if you must know!).
I can launch and play the game by going to
+Start UAE4ARMin EmulationStation and loading the
.adffile into drive DF0. I made a small amount of progress and wanted to check the save states worked, so I entered the emulator menu with F12 and scrolled down to the Savestates section, and clicked 'Save State'. It saved a screenshot of the game and on I went.
However, I then went to load up that save state, clicked on 'Load State' and it loaded...literally the screenshot it took when I saved. The mouse did not react at all.
I found quite an old thread (2016) where it talked about user permissions, and followed the instructions on command line by:
sudo chmod 777 savestates
According to the poster, this should have enabled save states. However, I tried again and the same thing happened. Just a screenshot, with no mouse movement or input.
Over samba shares I found a
.usssave state in
configs/amiga/uae4arm/savestates, so it has saved something.
I copied the
.ussfile into the amiga
romsfolder, but this made no difference (even after rebooting the pi).
I also looked at
cd /opt/retropie/emulators/uae4arm/savestatesand used the
lscommand, and the
.ussfile is also there.
So...anyone know why the save state won't work? Or, more importantly, how to get it to work?
