I'm a little clueless as to what to do to get the Snes9x emulator to work on the Hentges ROM. A box pops up in which to type a location. Am I supposed to download a snes game file from somewhere and put it on the Zaurus and then type the location in the box?

Obviously, I need a clue. sad.gif

BTW, I think games play much faster and "snappier" on the OZ/Opie ROM than on the Sharp ROM.

Yes, just do a search for ‘snes9x roms’ (google will give you 53900 links) and d/l something you want to play. The rom must be a ‘.zip’ file for it to work properly.

Greg,
I have not actually been able to get any to work. Some partially work; some not at all.
I have tried:
mario.zip (music plays; first screen shows but I can only move Mario left and right but nowhere else on the screen)
Chrono Trigger (U).zip (gives me the first choice screen of active or wait but then can't do anything)
Yoshis Island (V1-0) (E).zip (total blank screen)
alien3.zip (drops back to desktop without starting)
ultima7.zip (drops back to desktop without starting)

Anybody know of any roms that actually WORK with the Hentges ROM installation?

Thanks in advance. wink.gif

Sorry, I should have told you the games that have (PD).zip will in most cases have the correct key mapping like Maze (PD).zip or Columns (PD).zip.

I do know that Mercarobot Golf (U).zip and Dig & Spike Volleyball (U).zip work on my poodle. You need to use the 'c' key to select and enter. Give the golf game a try on your collie... but don't let it give you a headache trying to figure it out. I've never played most of these games... so the key mapping is something you will have to figure out for yourself. smile.gif

Is there a way to modify this application to have a browse button?

Heh, I wish!

I created a text file with the path in it and open it up and copy it before I open snes and then paste it in, but it is a nuisance. mad.gif

I don't know how to make a browse button with opie-sh... but here's a slightly modified script that I use. It looks for your games in /media/cf/games/snes without asking. You can change this in the script line:

LOCATION=/media/cf/games/snes
to
LOCATION=/wherever/you/want

if you want a different location?

To install it you need to replace the opie-sh-snes.sh in:
/opt/QtPalmtop/bin or /media/card/opt/QtPalmtop/bin (depending on your image) with this one attached.

You will need to unzip it.

Thanks, Greg! Works great.

I found that I couldn't edit it in Windows, but had to edit it on my Zaurus.

Is there some way to edit those files in Windows XP? I tried notepad first but it formatted it so it was not very readable and then I tried Wordpad and then the Zaurus said it couldn't find the file.

No biggie...it's just as easy to edit on the Zaurus anyway. rolleyes.gif

Do a search for a tool called dos2unix... I haven't used it for a long time, but it works for what you want to do.
