    I recently downloaded NESoidlite, Gearoidlite, and SNESoidlite. I know that I need roms in order to play games. I have found a bunch located at www.theoldcomputer.com However, how exactly does this process work? Do I browse to this site from my phone and then save the file. This is my first smartphone. So any step by step instructions would be greatly appreciated.

    As far as step-by-step

    You can do it a couple of different ways, the way I did it was download the roms (whether they're zipped or what not) then you extract them. Eventually you want ".nes" files, one you have those files, you can drop them anywhere on your SD-Card and then use nesnoid to open them (through it's menu).

    Another option ( I found this a bit more difficult since most roms were zipped and whatnot ) is to browse through your phone's browser and save them to your SD-Card. This just requires you have ASTRO or something installed that will let you unzip the .nes files.

    Hope this helps!

    Just a reminder, some of these Roms still have licenses associated with them (although many do not). Depending on where you get them from you should make sure you have the appropriate criteria to download them (IE: I think you're supposed to own the original game). Just a quick disclaimer, take it or leave it :)

    For SNESoidlite, are the file extensions supposed to be .smc? Some of them say .fig

    Oh! You're doing SNES, not NES, sorry :) I was playing around with NESOID, and all of the regular Nintendo games have a .nes extension, I think you're right about the .smc extension.

    Sorry I was confused!

    You were right. I was asking about NES, but I'm also trying to figure out SNES too.

    Does anyone have a good solution to playing games on the Eris? I've tried Gensoid and SNESoid and all the games I've tried are virtually unplayable with stuttering audio/graphics and the crappy virtual d-pad. Almost makes me want a Moto-Droid....

    I couldn't find any feasible solution. I tried every scenario and it led to me getting frustrated with the lack of control I had. Maybe it's not meant to be on the Eris :(
