    You can play the ROMs but to load saved game states you have to get the paid versions.

    Ya, I was aware of those. You'd think someone would have come out with a free one by now. Oh well.

    I'd rather spend my money on beer but watevs. Anyway, is there any reason certain roms wouldn't work on gensoid? For example, sonic runs fine but aladin just takes me bacl to my home screen.

    Some people are just a walking contradiction. I'm wondering if this genius is an Economics major. :D


    Motorola DROID ------------------ $199.00
    A case of crap beer -------------- $20.00
    Money spent on apps -------------$0.00

    Reading about DaygosDankest getting drunk, puking on his DROID just before dropping it in the toilet ...

    PRICELESS!!!

    I have never needed the full version of snes or gameboid since the systems themselves had no external memory. The roms (for gameboy) save states like pokemon and some games like mega man x and zombies ate my neighbors need game codes to continue.

    The roms are free... just the emulator you need to dish out a few bucks for.

    A lot of programs on the PC can be "free," but that doesn't mean anything.
