    Hi

    I am unable to get Genplus GX 1.7.0 to load using any Genplus forwarder.
    I can get Genplus GX 1.7.0 to load and play games through the Homebrew channel,but when I try with the forwarder I get a message saying that boot.dol is not installed in sd/apps/genplus
    I have tried different Genplus forwaders but all wont work.

    What am I doing wrong ??

    Thanks

    You need to have the boot.dol file on the sd/apps/genplus

    But there is a boot.dol in sd/apps/genplus.
    The one that came with the emulator.

    I tried renaming the dol file,but the forwarder still would not work.
    I downloaded the other forwarder and that one did work...


    Thanks for your help Hielkenator

    The original forwarder you were using probably wasn't looking in apps\genplus\boot.dol

    I know the forwarder channel i have for sega emulator looks in

    apps\genplusgx\boot.dol

    Its a sonic and tails forwarder channel. Got it from these forums a long time ago.
     
  7. My old forwarder stopped working after updating to GenPlusGX v1.7.0 (from v1.6.0).
    Installed the one from http://gbatemp.net/topic/309678-mastershoes-emu-forwarder-collection-2nd-edition/ and forwarding works fine again.
