    So I updated just like any other bloke would. HOWEVER, The damn update deleted my Hacked,Translated and Unlicensed Roms. Now I gotta Find them again. I think for SNES9xGX,VBA and such I should just do it manually instead of automatically if the update is going to annihilate my roms! Pisses me off though >:(

    We feel your sorrow; we really do. Things like this have happened to me before but not to your extent.

    Just realize that you are actually lucky that this is your worst nightmare. You could be living in a country like Lybia, Yemen or Haiti where this would be so trivial.

    That's impossible. The app doesn't delete files.

    Right behind you
    I would think it might be more of a problem with your SD card then the emu, I know I've had some issues on the DS in that regard. Format solved all the issues. For the Wii, I've been using all of the GX stuff for years without issue ever. Great work Tantric:)

    Just to be clear: you ARE talking about updating fceux, right? Updating your firmware is an entirely different matter, and not emulator-related (though it might influence it).


    Second: as Tantric mentions: the emulator simply doesn't remove files. At best the configuration got screwed somehow. Are you sure you're looking for your stuff in the right folder?


    Finally...it's a bit of a long shot, but IIRC, the latest versions of Tantric's emulators use IOS58. Perhaps try (re)installing this one?

    Then explain why my subfolders in fceugx are missing. Plus My SD card is fine. I never had a functionality problem with it at all. All my other apps worked fine and I updated the other emulators manually and all J2E and hacks are present. However I downloaded FCEUGX through the app (tells when updates are available) and my Translated roms are now gone. It's sad but can't do nothing about it now. As for the lybia,Yemen and whatever comment I was reading. I don't care about them, their problems are just that. THEIR PROBLEMS. I was just blowing off steam because I was highly ticked off by my roms were gone. I'll just have to repatch my J2E famicom roms again.

    EDIT: The files are there but FCEUGX update didn't read them. I installed the app manually on the SD and it reads them now.

    Then your problem is your problem, prick. Don't ask for help if you feel that way.

    yes dir listing is very slow going back to older versions. maybe a short testing phase before committing to a release?

    I noticed that too. Takes a LONG time before all the roms appear in the dir list. Wonder why that is?

    Yeah because well Video Game related issues are so much the same as World related issues that I am deemed a prick for my opinion on something that NOTHING TO DO WITH MY PROBLEM. I'm sure there is an offtopic part of this forum. If you want to feel sorry for people and express your problems with those countries. Go there. This is a forum for WII and HOMEBREW related issues not "3 Lybians die after grenade goes off". GTFO.

    Glad you got it sorted dude. But everyone needs to remember all these developers do so in their spare time and have never asked for a penny/cent. Of course you're free to donate, but that's optional. It bothers me when people moan about a dev not doing a certain thing or making a mistake. People don't have to use their apps.

    another wise man also said "check anything before you give away for you may regret what you lose"
    or even "Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a violent psychopath who knows where you live."
