    when I start the DSTwo, I see the following files: "._gba.plg", "._i Reader.plg" and ".sfc.plg"; basically one invisible file for every plug in.

    further, in the gba and snes gamepak folders, most titles generate a similar file. ergo, if i have "uniracers.smc" I also have, heading the list, "._uniracers.smc"
    there is no such issue with .nds files.


    these files do not show up on my computer even when I set it to show hidden files. I work on a Mac, and thinking this might be the root of the problem, I re-downloaded the plugins on a pc, and erased all the .smc and .gba files and rewrote them from a pc, but nothing has changed.

    anyone have any idea why i'm seeing this stuff?

    thanks much,

    -anthony

    Answer to why they are there: (And Yes it's cause of OS X)

    You can on your mac or PC (I've had to do this before) show hidden files and then search the drive for ._ and then just delete them all.
