    Hey what's going on everybody?
    So i'm waiting in the mail for my Droid, and I can't wait, i've heard nothing but fantastic things about it so I'm excited. I had a question about emulators though: So I have emulators (N64 and Gameboy) on my desktop to play games likes tetris, super mario, mega man, etc, however that was a while ago, and forgot how to do that. So I was wondering if somebody could just tell me how to add them to the phone, i'd really appreciate it. Thanks a bunch, and Happy Holidays!

    yup, easy i have some on mine. you first have to download the emulators from the market and they are free. I have nesoid lite (nes) and snesoid lite (snes). then you have to find roms on the web (doperoms.com works great for me) and save them to your SD card via a usb cable hooking your droid to your computer. Just create a folder called games or whatever you want and out the games in there. Then when you open the app on your phone it will give you a blank screen that says no ROM loaded pres Menu for more options. hit menu, then open then you can access your sd card and the games will be in the folder you created! pretty easy. I have excitebike, punch out, ninja gaiden, tecmo bowl and of course super mario bros. it's fun you can set up the buttons however you want and use an on screen virtual d-pad or buttons for directions.

    if you're slick, you can dl games (ROMs) straight to your phone. you need a file manager and an unzipper. i haven't tried, but i believe the phone is capable of this (without root).

    btw, it's very easy to dl on your pc, then "Drag &drop" onto your phone...

    You dont need a computer at all. Go to the market and download astro file manager and download crutch. With those two apps u will be able to go to sites on ur phone such as theoldcomputer.com and click on the rom and it will download right to ur phone. Then just use astro to unzip and ur all set. Hope this helps cause the phone is awsome.

    I'm pretty sure you don't have to unzip the files. I dont and the games work great without unzipping

    I have another Noob question, do these emulators kill your battery very fast? Ive heard if you hook it up on your iPhone youll get about forty five minutes of gameplay before the battery dies.

    I downloaded crutch, and I alreay had Astro. I went to that website and it gave me a forbidden error. Are there any other reputable websites you would recommend to get these roms from?
