    So this is for Sega? Does that mean it can play Sonic Adventure 2? Or is that for some different Sega system or something?

    Sorry I can't help much with your question...do you have the BIOS file in there?

    Thanks - I think the emulator is for sega game gear. Not sure. I never had one. A less technical friend of mine was asking about it.

    I downloaded and unzipped the rom files onto a directory on my sd card. Nautilus (on my laptop) and Astro can both see them. When I try to open the file, it says, "not supported."

    Hmm - wonder if I shouldn't unzip. I remember MAME using zipped files....

    Okay, I solved it myself.

    The files need to remain zipped up. This is true in MAME and Stella (Atari 2600 emulator) but not the NES emulators.
