    anywhere. it's easier if you out the nes roms in a separate folder.

    To give you the reason why: it takes a lot longer to load the list of roms if there are many files in the same directory. It also makes your folders a lot tidier.

    I personally create a new folder for each game, like shadowmanwkp said, it loads faster. But i mainly do this as it is neater and easier to organise on the PC as you can have up to 3 files per game (game, save, cheat).
