    Gameboid Problem

    I downloaded the $3.99 Gameboid from the Market on my Moto Droid.
    I put the gba_bio.bin file in the root folder. Then I put 5 gba roms from DopeRoms & Romulation in the root folder as well [Golden Sun 2, Pokemon Emerald, Metroid Fusion...]. I started Gameboid, located the gba_bios.bin & hit Load ROM. I selected Metroid Fusion and Gameboid instantly crashed & I was taken to my home screen.

    I've downloaded & re-installed 3 different gba_bios.bin files. I've now tried 15 different roms from 3 different sites. I've even uninstalled Gameboid & re-downloaded through Market. Every single time I startup, hit "Load ROM" and select ANY rom, it crashes to home screen.

    Help?

    Strange... Did Gameboid Lite work for you?

    Certain games don't work with some of the Droid emulators yet- have you tested your other games on it? Snesoid, as an example, universally crashes when opening Kirby Superstar or Super Mario RPG but runs most everything else.

    Edit: my bad, you already answered. What other apps have you installed? Could be an app conflict.

    Speaking of the Bios, rereading this it appears odd that you had to place the BIOS in a specific folder. Doesn't it prompt you to locate it on the SD card when you open the program?

    thats what i was thinking. it should be in the root folder.
    and by root i mean the first folder that comes up when you access your droid from your computer

    I downloaded GameBoid Lite and when I started it up it asked me to locate the gba_bios.bin - where is that or how could I find it, and does it go in the SD root directory? Never mind - Google search was my friend. Now I just need to find some Game Boy Advance games.

    gba_bios.bin, and yes, although it will let you browse through your SD card so you can pop it in any number of subfolders if you so desire.

    Figured it out guys... I'm a complete botard.

    When you open Gameboid, there's all your ROMs at the top, which arent playable. I'm not sure if they're default save files or what, but if you scroll down, you'll see a completely copied set which are all playable.

    I'm an idiot. Thanks for your time.

    The same thing is happening to me.. everytime I start up a game.. for example, Pokemon. It'll play the part when it was made, blah blah. And then a blue rectangle will come up and crash and go to the home screen. Then, i read this, looked for an extra list of files that play, but don't know what you're talking about? HELP! I WANT MY POKEMON!!
