    Are you sure the gameboy roms you try to run are actually good?

    they were from ---LINK REMOVED--- i had to change the .7z on the end of the name to .gb or .gbc to get the lameboy to find the games then when i try to load them the loading bar would go up then it would go back to the page with the roms listed

    Why would you change it to ".gb or .gbc"?
    Are you playing a regular NDS game or a GameBoy game?
    Because if you're trying to play a NDS game, it has to be a .nds file.

    .7z extensions mean that they're zipped files. Download 7-zip and after installing it on your computer you can open the archive. There you'll find the .gb\.gbc files you need.

    Once you've installed 7 zip (and changed your files back to *filename*.7z) you right click on the file and do the following:

    Or you can click on "Open Archive". That might be a better option since you might have multiple files in your zip file.
