    @jabmaster2 - well first things first, do you have the SNES9x GX 4.1.5c edition? If not, you can download that from here -> http://www.psikostudios.com/wii/snes9x/SNE...GX_4.1.5.c4.zip

    From there, you need a folder named "Covers" in the snes9xgx folder, same place as the roms. From there, just follow the naming standards for the cover.

    the naming rules for images...
    1) take the full name of the rom and drop the extension
    2)if the name contains "[" drop that, everything after it, and the spaces directly before it
    3)truncate what you have left to fit in a char[64]
    4)add .png

    I tried this, but it doesn't seem to work. For the rom, do I need to put the extention .zip on each one as well?

    try this way :

    sd:\snes9xgx\images\Super Mario World.png
    sd:\snes9xgx\roms\Super Mario World.zip (or Super Mario World.smc or .sfc for non-compress game)

    Zip is only for compress roms, it take less place but you can leave it in it's format sfc or smc that's doesn't matter but use the same name for game and picture
