    Whenever I use an SNES emulator, no games show up. I've used both Snesx and Snemulds and I had the same problem for both. Anyone know how to fix it?

    Also, the games are .smc files if that helps.

    The games have to be in a folder named SNES which must be placed in the root directory of your card.

    Now I can see the games, but when I click on one, it brings me to a blank screen. The sound is kind of working but when I turn off the bottom screen it just stops.

    SNES Emulation on DS is not perfect.

    There are a lot of games that don't run, or Run very slow with errors.

    I don't seem to have to many problems, playing Earthbound perfectly.
    Anyway you should have your SNES folder on the root of your SD with your games in, SNESmulDS.nds on the root as well. Just click on SNESmulDS 0.6 and you should see a list of your SNES games on the bottom screen, highlight the game you wanna play and your game press A and your game should start on the top screen.
    I've got an R4 1.18, hope this helps.

    Sorry for mix up of words at the end but you get the idea I hope.

    Yeah, I got it. But I have a Cyclods Evolution, do you think that will make any difference?

    *Disregards almost every post in thread*

    I also have a CycloDS Evolution, let me help you winner.

    -SNES ROMs (.smc files) must be placed in a folder exactly named SNES.
    -SnEmulDS is placed in the root of your card.
    -Make sure the games you play are compatible. Games that use special chips such as Starfox cannot be played... yet.
    -Click on SnEmulDS from the file browser on your CycloDS and enjoy!
