    Do you have the bios?
    Google them if you don't.

    It's illegal for BIOS files to be distributed.
    If a BIOS file came with an emulator, it make that whole download illegal.

    So no, downloading an emulator doesn't mean that you also get the BIOS file.

    Happy hunting.

    SNES does not have BIOS files -_- Stupid forummites. BIOS is required for CD consoles mainly.

    Have you tried simply reinstalling snes4iphone? Or uninstalling then re-downloading again (surely it'll remember you bought it). Or if you haven't bought it it may have been a bad crack.

    Snes4iphone isn't perfect. Some roms just won't work. You just got unlucky to get two consecutive games that don't work.

    If it doesn't read the ROM format they simply won't show up in the menu. I think SMC is the format Snes4iphone uses though

    Well i know this isnt the most helpful post, but are the games your looking for available on the GBA? The SNES and the GBA are kinda simular so i figure its worth a shot.
    Try here for alot of detailed help.
    I spoiled it cause im pretty sure i can post this and be ok, but just to be safe.
    Try the different topics. they are pretty useful and self explanatory.

    Very discreet [​IMG] But i have a game that doesn't work on snes4iphone, but works on the ipad version. It's the same code, but it doesn't work. You should try to get another rom.

    I guess this happens for the same reason toast always falls jelly side down. (Don't ask me why) Just.. use another game or buy a snes for 5$.
