    They go in /switch/melonds that's why.

    You have an extra folder that shouldn't be there. Just copy/paste the bios in /switch/melonds.

    Maybe it doesn't like .rom, but only .bin, for the bios?

    Just right click it and rename it to .bin, each one that's .rom.

    Because you didn't listen to me. You have them in melonds-0.8.3 > switch > melonds, I told you to move them to just switch > melonds. It's not going to work unless you do.

    There's the root of your sd card and there's a switch folder on the root, inside that is melonds, put them in there.

    It's on the first post of the thread about MelonDS on gbatemp.

    This is my port of the Nintendo DS emulator melonDS for the Nintendo Switch. To use the emulator, place your legally dumped Nintendo DS BIOS files in the sdmc:/switch/melonds directory with the names "bios7.bin", bios9.bin", and "firmware.bin".

    Fuck yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I'm so happy to play dawn of sorrow. Soma got some new qt boots too:wub:

    But wait, theres more! instead of a sequel thread, I'll just make a sequel post instead! hahahahahahahahahaha

    So I'm also having trouble with retroarch. I seem to be missing the core to play my PSX and PSP games. I downloaded content off the app's build in updater but it still doesn't work
