Hi,

So for the first time I tried to put a SNES Emulator on my CycloDS card. I have managed to put the emulator on fine (SNEmulDS) and it loads just fine. However due to being, most likely, an uneducated fool ( :ha: ), i'm struggling to put games on.

I put Super Mario Kart on and when I press to load the game all I get is a screen with many options (options below) and no way to begin the game. Any help will be much appreciated.

Options:

Select Rom
Load State
Save state
Options
SPC Jukebox
Advanced

Thanks.

your .smc files need to go in a SNES folder in root.

Thanks for the response. I tried that and yet the game still just gives me the options I mentioned in my first post, instead of actually loading the game. Not sure what i'm doing wrong.

anyways, moving on...

not all snes games are supported. there is a compatibility list floating around. it could be you are trying to play games that won't work. make sure your files are .smc files.

check these links:

unfortunately, there really aren't many choices. if you want to play snes games on a ds then you should pick up a supercard ds2. they have an snes emu (that also saw a few homebrew developer revisions) that has a much higher compatibility. it is a port of snes9x and can run a lot of games, homebrew, and demo roms, except for the special chip games. like snemulds it isn't perfect, but it is a much better choice.

check out my review of the first revision of the emu:

Super Mario Kart will definitely not work, as it uses a coprocessor chip that is not emulated. Try a more well-known game like Super Mario World first for testing.

Thanks for that. I don't suppose you know much about PSPs? Just curious as to whether SNEs Emulation, amonst other emulators, works better on a PSP?

As AW said, a PSP will run almost everything, except some titles with a minimal slowdown (Starfox, Super Mario RPG). But trust me, if you have a PSP, go with that for SNES emulating! :P

Thanks for the replies. I don't have a PSP but have been considering getting one primarily for emulating.

Yeah a PSP's much better than a DS for emulation. High resolution screen so it doesn't have downscaling issues, much more RAM (DS units have 4MB of usable RAM for homebrew, PSP has 32MB-64MB depending on the model with only the oldest series having 32MB), much faster processor, etc.
