    So new to this but was able to sideload some apps but was wondering how exactly to ADD "FILES" into folders on the xbox one. Like how and where would i know to put rom files?

    For the majority of emulators you will place your roms on the USB Drive or External HDD. There are some that require you to upload your roms to onedrive

    I don't know it really just depends on what kind of set up you have to be quite honest. I just have a folder for each system and I put the roms in each respectively. For instance

    SNES
    NES,
    GB
    GBC
    PSP
    PS1,
    Genesis

    To answer your second question FAT32 should be just fine

    No at least anything I've release publicly but privately i did tinker around with writing homebrew for Wii. And I used to be pretty active in the PS3 Scene a few years back. Maybe that's why?

    For homebrew on older systems (PSP,WII,PS2, PS1) All you need to learn is C. You will hear people tell you to learn C++ but I'm telling you that as a beginner that's a bad idea. C is fine and will serve you well.

    For Xbox One stuff I'd recommend you learn C#.

    One last tip if you really wanna create homebrew there are tons of resources to help you online. But don't just watch tutorials or read books and think you know how to use a language. While you are learning C or C# you need to be practicing and writing small programs on the side to measure your knowledge and to actually get used to writing software.

    The PS1 uses PsQ-y PS2 is a bit of a mess honestly and you'll need a linux set up (Slackware preferabbly) to compile homebrew for PS2
    Wii uses devkitpro, off the top of my head I can't remember what PSP uses but IIRC you need linux to set up the toolchain and such.
    Xbox One will be the easiest as you already have all necessary tools by having Visual Studio, you'll just need to learn C#

    Hope I've helped

    after importing the roms do i need to keep the flash drive in to play them or did it copy them to the xbox one? and i tested golden sun for gba, but when i goto save it tells me "unable to detect backup memory"

    It copies them so no you should be able to remove the drive and be fine

    It's not functional yet as the backend of it is still being worked on. As far as where to get APPX Packages I have a client that I wrote that makes it very simple. You simply choose what you would like to download and you'll get a .APPX Package which you can easily install on the Xbox One.

    Here's the link to the client

    Just plug your USB Drive into your PC and delete them. Or you can use file explorer on the Xbox One
