    Why is it that Secret of Evermore and Secret of Mana 2 don't run? I ask this because they are so similar to Secret of Mana, Ive never been sure why they are un-runnable. Maybe theres a trick I dont know of to get them running. Well, thats all I've got for now.

    Similarity gameplay-wise does not at all coincide with similarity code-wise. These games likely contain code that SNEmulDS simply cannot interpret, at least not yet. It doesn't matter if they use the same game assets or feel similar, it's the actual coding and instructions that matters.

    That's about the extent of my technical knowledge on the subject however, so I can't really get more specific than that.

    True, but being made by the same company, and I believe SOME members, if not all, carried over from the SoM team to the other games, so I assumed the code would be fairly similar as well. I have about the same knowledge as you it seems.
