Thanks for the links. I've got the SNES emulator running but when I go to my ROMS they don't show up. I've left them in a zipped format but I'm assuming they have to be unzipped to access? Previous emulators, even on the PSP, allow you to play straight from the zipped file. Is there a way to set them up like this or are we forced to use the unzipped files for now?

You can put them in there own folder directory but short answer is no, zips wont show your files.

Well that's a shame but at least it's working and it seems great! I tested Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and it ran smooth with no issues. Time to get the rest of them on it. It's great how easy they have made this.

You can keep the zipped folders for Genesis though. Mine didn't work when they were unzipped. Playing Sonic the Hedgehog 3 and it's working great!
