Android :: Snesoid And Srm Saves - Not Using Savestates To Load - Save Games - Gameboid Uses .sav
Nov 29, 2009
Snesoid seems to solely rely on save state files and not on actual battery saves used on the original cartridges (.sav) files. These are also smaller in file size and using these instead of savestates makes it feel more like playing an SNES (not being able to use savestates) but relying on the games own way of saving your progress. These .srm battery saves are easy to find so it's much easier to load up my Super Mario Kart with special courses unlocked
Gameboid for GBA games uses the actual battery pack saves, .sav files...
So why isn't snesoid able to do this or am I doing something wrong? I use the Motorola Droid.
My gameboid emulator had been working pretty well until yesterday. About 30 hours into my golden sun 1 game, the emulator crashed. I thought, no big deal, I'll just reload.
But now when I open the rom, my sav file is gone! It wasn't a save state as I am using the lite version, but I just lost over 30 hours of gaming. On my SD card it says I have a .sav file for the game, so does that mean I still have the sav file?
Also, has anyone had any luck running golden sun 2? I'm having problems similar to what I've read, which is that it crashes after the intro. If you've gotten it to work, what rom and bios are you using?
This app is great but if it can't run any decent RPG's than maybe it's not as good as I'd hope.
I got the snesoid app and it's awesome and the roms work great, but I can't save at all! I will play the game for a while and then when I close out of the rom and go do something else on my phone, I'll come back and the game data has been deleted! Is there a patch I need for this?
Installed the Snesoid and GameBoid on it but they are not working. I open up either application with a message 'No ROM loaded. Press Menu for more options.' I put my games in a folder called Roms. When I select the folder to load a game, it recognises that the games are on there but as soon as I choose a game it loads for a couple of seconds then the whole application closes returning me to my home screen on my phone. What's up with that? I want to play Mario Kart dammit! P.S Is there any way to stop the phone's time syncing with my PC time. It's doing my head in!
Question concerning the gameboid app. What exactly is the difference between it and gameboid lite? It is just that you can save games in the paid app? I downloaded the rom for FF tactics advance and realized i couldn't save my progress, will this change if i spend the $4 on the paid version? Also are there any other perks to actually buying the application?
I'm very new to the android phone's (Just got my HTC hero three days ago.) and I was wondering, are there any good resident evil games for the htc Hero? I've seen some awesome one's on iphone and I used to have some fun Resi games on my old E71.
While I'm on the subject of gaming I have also downloaded the snesoid light and find the music and gaming a little sluggish. Is this just how it is or is there anything I can do to sort that? Would the full paid version work any better?
I downloaded the gameboid for my droid. I also downloaded some roms for it that a friend who has the gameboid suggested. I also downloaded the bios required and out them in the same folder i made for them when i open my gameboid it directs me to that folder , but when i click either the bios or the roms it says, ". The BIOS must be specified in the settings" I didn't see this in any othedr forumn I have the samsung moment from Sprint.
So two things here. Iv been playing star ocean: the second story, and for any of you who know the game, im up to the part where clik is detroyed and you watch the fmv of the earthquake. Problem is, after the fmv ends, im left looking at a black screen, and it gets stuck there.
Does anyone else have a problem like this? can it be fixed? Iv thought about maybe using a different iso of star ocean, or another file type, but if i were to do that, could i still use the savegame iv been using with this one? and if so, how do i do that? i dont want to lose what iv done so far if i need to use a different file.
I've been playing Mario & Luigi: Superstar saga for a few minutes and I got to the part in Bowser's ship where you learn to fight as a team. After I break the barrel and get attacked by a Goomba, the game freezes at the battle transition. I've tried skipping this battle, but so far, every battle makes the game freeze at the battle transition. Playing the PAL version, by the way.
Gameboid and Nesoid are very good emulaters and they were developed by the same Creator. I'm trying to decide on which one to get but don't know which one is better. I noticed that both of them are rated 5 stars so its harder for me to decide. I'm wondering if anyone has download them and if they prefer a certain one. Also if anyone has good websites to download the games off of that would be great.
I have managed to root and lag fix but thats about all. I would love to be able to play some oldschool games. Can anyone give me a step by step guide to doing this. I found some threads about it but they are really a bit too advanced. So maybe someone could start kind of basic.
I downloaded Gameboid recently, and I definitely have a GBA_bios.bin in my SD card, but whenever I select it after clicking browse for bios it just says it has failed. Any Idea why?
And while I'm here I can play GBCoid fine (I am using lite) but for some reason I can't understand, the select button doesn't work. I have to use the virtual keypad as the Pulse doesn't have a hard keyboard.
so i plugged my hdmi out into my evo and fired up ff2 on snesoid, ive tried this previously and got nothing, but today i got perfect sound out the tv, but the screen was still black. any word on when this will work or how? also any bluetooth snes controllers that work with evo?
okay a have a general idea of how to use an emulator. i have a list of games at my disposal. so when i find the game i want, i save it to a destination on my computer, then i mount my sd card through my phone, throw the game onto the sd card (anywhere) via my computer. then no matter if i unmount or stay mounted, ill run the emulator on my mytouch, search for where i put the game. click on it, then it will take me to a blank screen as if it wants to load the game. and since i have the free versions of these emulators i also see the ads at the bottom, so i know it didnt crash. it just isnt loading
Has anyone with an Evo 4G currently tried these game apps? I wanted to know how they run, and if the touch screen controls respond decently. Since the device has multi-touch I'm not to worried. These things running badly can be a deal breaker for me.
I downloaded the gameboid app and i also got the bameboid bios bin. now it will load up and go to the gameboy screen. then it just stays there. how do i get games for it. i think they are called roms? where do i get them?
I have a HTC Wildfire and I bought Gameboid, (The emu for the GBA). I also downloaded a Pokemon rom and Gameboid is running a little choppy, its nothing serious, but not desirable, since its not smooth. Does anyone know what settings could smooth it out? I disabled audio.
I've been unsucessful in getting gameboid to run on my EVO. I installed gameboid lite. I install the bios.bin file. I go to search the Rom's on Rom Find, but everytime I try to download the rom I get an error message of failed to download message.
I recently got the Epic 4G and I am trying to get Gameboid to work on my Epic. It's telling me, "You MUST specify the BIOS file in the settings before you can play any games!" So I downloaded gba_bios.bin and saved it onto my SD card. How do I get the Bios mounted so I can actually use the application to play my ROMS?
