Emulator problem
« on: December 14, 2013, 12:24:46 am »
I am having trouble getting my rom to work.

I have so far managed to network my gcw-zero to my computer. I have also managed to use to use a FTP to transfer over the  Pocketsnes file.  It appears to have installed ok because it has its own icon in the Emulator menu.

I have also transferred over a rom file with the .smc extension into Media/Data creating my own file to hold it.

this file shows up in DinguxCmdr, but it does not show up when I use the file explorer.

My problem is this: when I try to activate my pocketsnes emulator, I get what appears to be a loading screen for a split second and then it stops. 

Similarly I have tried to execute the file manually by going into the Cmdr and selecting execute from the menu. When I try this nothing happens.  Does it matter if the file name has spaces in it?

If someone could provide help  that would be appreciated.

The file itself is not executable. The only way to launch a game is by browsing to it via the built in file browser of PocketSNES.

Thank you for your response.

This still leaves me with the problem that I cannot activate pocketsnes properly.

After transferring it onto my gcw zero, it  displays as its own icon  under the heading of  emulators.

I assume that means the machine recognizes it and that it is installed properly.

However, when i try to activate the program by clicking on the icon,   a loading screen appears for a split second and then it stops as if I never pressed  a button.

Could I have installed something wrong?
