    I couldn't find what the problem is, but what am I doing wrong? No one answered me in the other post so I have to make a thread.. :/
    Just a fast answer, I got SNES>freeroms.com>SNES>*game*>Download>RUBBISH!

    Just takes me to this weird foreign looking script after hitting download. Helpā™„

    Not other rom sites, just different roms. Maybe I'll check it out, I was just wondering if I'm having a user error somewhere.

    Yeah, I have the same probem sometimes when downloading the SNES files. The way I figured out to get around it (besides just using my computer and transferring the ROMS over) is this:

    1. Dowload Androzip from the marketplace

    2. download the ROM from freeroms. It will save with the file extention .txt

    3. Use Astro to locate the saved .txt file and rename the extension to .7z, which is what the extension is supposed to be when downloaded from freeroms. (a different kind of compressed file) So instead of madden94.txt, it should be madden94.7z

    4. Open androzip and locate the .7z file and decompress it. The files will appear and will be useable.


    Its a bit pain, but it works when you are out and about and don't want to have to mount your droid to your computer. It is easier then it sounds at first though.:)

    You have no idea how much you have just helped me, thankyou so muchdancedroid
    edit: ignore everything above, yes while i do appreciate the effort and i am sorry the
    inconveinience (two words in the world i can't spell, that one right before this parentheses section, and sphychic) but the problem is that you can't download the file, instead in just goes to the coding of the file and you stare at it in disbelief as it snickers at your fetal attempt to play snes games.

    I don't understand why there is a need to unpack or rename ROMS for Snesoid BUT for Gensoid and GameBoid there is no need?

    And after I unpack a ROM which file do I play there are so many that show up for one game? Furthermore, can I delete the files that I can't play? and the one that plays just starts out in the game, no intro AND when time runs out the game just freezes?

    I have started off with one game Donkey Kong Country downloaded from Freeroms and I WAS able to use Dolphin HD to download directly to my phone and the extension was already .7z

    Please help :motdroidhoriz:

    Are you guys using macs? On my IMac in order to download, you have to hold Ctrl + click and say "Save Target As..." If you click the links for ROM's on a Mac, it will show text only.
