    What's up everybody?

    For the longest time, I've seen people talk about game emulators and never really found a good "How To Use" link or FAQ.

    Can anybody give me a good breakdown on how to use these. I downloaded a couple emulators already and also downloaded some ROM's from a website a friend gave me...

    But now I have NO clue what to do from here. Do I just open the app and then open the rom from the game emulator?

    Thanks in advance.

    What emulator? They all run differently. Some of them you need to download a bios file to get the emulator to run, others you dont.

    Otherwise, just download some roms, place them on the sd card. Then open the emulator, navigate to where you put the roms, then open them. You can hit menu-settings (not while in a game) and that will let you change controller layouts and sound/video options. Thats really about it.

    Nice. I tought it'd be that easy, but there were no specific threads discussing a "how to" and the website I was given had an awful FAQ for first time users.

    The 2 emulators I've downloaded so far are gensoid and nesoid.
