And if you're allowed to post such material, what are good links to ROM sites?
Also do any emulators support save states?
OK so I'm new to this forum. In fact I joined just so I can figure out How to play snes and Genesis Roms on my Droid. I downloaded to emulator from the market. Then I tried to Dow load snes Roms from romnation.com. apparently my phone didn't support the file type. So I checked out coolrom.com. I got to Download a couple Roms I wanted and now when I try to open them the load fails. Help please!!!!!!!!!!!
If you download a ROM (Which is legal to have one "back up copy" in the US provided you also own a legitimate copy of the cartridge) then you need to find a place on your SD Card to put it.
I created a folder called ROMs, and under that, are separate folders for each emulator (NES, SNES, Gameboy, etc.) that I store the actual ROMs.
Most sites that you download them from, will have the ROMs compressed in either a .zip or .rar format, which the emulators can not read. You will need to use your favorite unzip program (On the Droid, it would either be AndroZip, or I believe Astro can handle them as well, or on a PC you'd need WinZip, WinRar, or 7Zip, something along those lines) to extract the .sfc file from the archive, and then place that file in the folder.
Here's an example:
1) I love Actraiser, but I don't want to pull my cartridge out of storage, so I go to www.<insert favorite ROM site here>.com and download actraiser.zip to my NexTheme flavored Kangerade dispenser to the /sdcard/ROMs folder
2) Open AndroZip and navigate to the ROMs folder
3) Extract actraiser.sfc from that file to ROMs/SNES
4) Open SNESOid and enjoy the god-like goodness!
On a related note, there is a company that is making a $15 add-on for the Droid that slips over the keyboard and gives you an actual controller with a d-pad, reviews of it look pretty good. I don't remember what it's called, but I'm sure it'll be easy to find if you click on the link in my sig
HTC Rezound... Stock for now, with the Tag Home launcher...
