Emulators and Roms


Recommended Posts

So I thought I would try my hand at emulators and roms, and I'm making a big mess of it, it seems...

 

Every file is corrupt, (game cube) or just doesn't work because I'm missing a plug in or something? (Nintendo 64).

 

The programs aren't even showing up in my uninstall list when I use my control panel, so I have no idea how to get rid of them completely to start over.

 

Halp, please. I am kind of desperate for it. I don't even have a qualm about screen sharing my PC if it would make things easier.

Just a quick bit of a legal thing here.... Emulators are almost always legal, Roms are almost always not. There are conditions that allow you to legally have Roms (for example, if I have a physical copy of Pokemon Yellow I can legally have a rom of pokemon yellow in some - but not all - countries), but to avoid any legal problems I'll stress that people should NOT post links to sites that allow you to download roms. We don't want MD to get in trouble, after all.

Emulators are rather basic and all work the same why by making the computer think its something its not. However how each emulator makes the computer think a little differently. I would start by bringing down your firewall and virus protection (if you got it from a trusted source of course). If that fails I need a little bit more information. For example which emulator your using. I used to use emulators but its been a while so somebody else would likely be more qualified then me for anything that comes after project 64..
