Ok, next item of possible interest is Famicom Disk System rom usage on the DingooNES.sim emulator for the Dingoo A320.
Once you have acquired your DingooNES.sim emulator (preferably the latest version and i'll leave that part up to you if you don't already have it), just read below to get the FDS games running.

The Famicom Disk System was a Japanese disk system add-on for their Famicom (the Japanese NES), which played games via a disk format similar to a floppy disk, but in a hard, colored case (usually yellow).
The significance in playing these versions of the games is that in some cases, the music, graphics and start game interface may be slightly different, as is the case with Metroid, which has a Legend of Zelda style start menu.
The DingooNES emulator will run ".fds" roms (with the "disksys" file it comes with), but you need to follow these steps:
- acquire the .fds rom(s)
- run the .fds rom like you do the rest of the .nes roms
- wait for the NINTENDO logo to come up and let the system load the game
- When you get to the actual game main screen, press L+R+Select buttons at the same time
(to "switch disk sides"...don't ask)
- you may need to wait a few moments or "switch disk sides" again (and you should do it anytime it tells you, or anytime you think you should, like if it gets "stuck".)
- now the controls will be enabled!
(Note: the emulator, ".cfg" and "disksys" files should be directly within the GAME folder to run without a major problem. This is usually the case for most emulators...)
