    I have loaded the emulator on my SD card but I have not tried it with any ROMS yet. I still have a PC emulator for the NES system and tons of ROMS for that. Will those ROMS work with the Wii NES emulator?

    Also, I have been thinking about getting the Homebrew Launcher. I just have a question about it. Does the Launcher appear as a channel within the Wii Main Menu? And if so, once you click on the channel it would open up and appear just like the Main Menu, but all my applications would appear as channels within the Launcher?

    Obviously I am new to this whole think but quickly picking up on it. As far as putting the ROMS on my SD card, what is the best way to organize them. If within my /apps folder I had all my applications, and especially if I get the homebrew launcher, do the ROMS need to be placed in a file within the /apps folder? Of can I structure my folder as such…

    /apps/FCEUltraGX/ROMS
    /apps/Snes9xGX/ROMS

    If I put the Roms Folder with the emulator folder within the apps folder, will I be able to load the ROMS ok?

    SNES9x's default folder for roms/saves is
    sdcarddir:\snes9x\roms
    sdcarddir:\snes9x\saves

    VBAGX, fceugx, and genplus also have their folders in a root folder on the sd card.

    in the menu of the emulator on your wii you can navigate thru the folders of your sd card just like on a computer, but they will default to those locations so better to just store your roms in the default folders.

    So just to clarify, I do not put the folders for the emulator ROMS and saves within the /apps folder. However, the actual emulator folder needs to be placed with the /apps folder in order for the homebrew channel/launcher to run them.

    read the instructions, the app folder goes in apps, the other example VBA\Saves\Roms that goes in Root of SD, just read before jumping in [​IMG] also hope you make a nice HBL banner, might be better than my old one [​IMG]
