Games :: Gamboid / SNESoid / NESoid Reputable Rom Sources
Jul 21, 2010
So I'm interested in possible getting back into some old games using the GameBoid, SNESoid, and NESoid emulators available through the market! My concern is that previously when I would download PC roms & emulators the source sites were always loaded with smut, malicious software, and other goodies you surely want on your computers. Is this an issue with Android Roms? Where do you find Android Roms, can we get a list of sites that members here have had good luck finding quality roms without hassle? pls avoid Torrents, cause I don't use that so it wont help.
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.
The topic says what is the difference in nesoid lite and nesoid paid app? are the controls/buttons any better on the paid app? it seems kind of hard to get used to them on the lite version. It seems like all you can really play are RPG and not action (what they called action games back then.
Maybe I can find the answers I'm looking for here. I just got my droid today (LG ally) and I downloaded NESoid and SNESoid lite. At first they ran perfectly, then when I tried running them again, everything was choppy and laggy. How can I fix this?
I recently downloaded these emulators and put some Roms from my Rom collection onto my phone, but when I try to open them on my droid it says no roms are in the folder. Where on my phone do I put these roms so that they can be found by the emulator?
What do you think is the best way to map the buttons for these two emulators (NESOID AND SNESOID). I'm having trouble finding a solution. Your help as always is appreciated...and yes I searched, but could only find info on the actual droid which has an actual keyboard not just a virtual one.
So just got the Sprint HTC Hero and tried the Snesoid lite. All the games run pretty slow. Most reviews i've seen for Snesoid that have been positive, the person had something like the Evo or incredible. Is there anything i can do to make Snesoid run well? Does getting the paid version of snesoid help? Getting another phone is not a solution.
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?
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.
Does anyone know if there has been a multitouch mod yet for NESoid on the Nexus One? Its so tough to use when you have to continually take your fingers off of the screen. Also, is there a way to change the button layout? right now the A and B buttons are on the left and right side of the phone, making it really difficult to use both at the same time. Also, please dont post anything on here about games because i dont want them to close the thread on me. Just answer the technical questions or voice concerns or whatever, dont mention any games or roms or anything of that nature.
I recently bought the nesoid app and the roms are working and playing but i cant press two buttons at the same time . for example, if i want to jump while running, i cannot do that. please tell me what can fix the issue
I love NES games and Nesoid seems to be the best emu for android, so I picked it up. Problem is I can't seem to find a decent button layout to allow me to play properly. Anyone found a set-up that works for them?
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
I recently purchased a HTC Evo and want to start installing more applications. SNESoid and other emulators would be awsome to have on my phone I just dont know how to go about it. Is there a tutorial out there or maybe someone can explain it really good to me. Thanks in advance.
How do i get roms to work on the snesoid emulator? I downloaded the emulator on my droid without any problem but everytime i try to download a rom it says "unsuccessful download". I've also tried to download them onto my mac and drag them onto my phone but it still won't work. Tips?
Ive been trying the snesoid app on my galaxy and ive found that using the trackball option is the easiest way to play. But its really annoying that you keep running, on the galaxy we got a real d-pad so is there any way of making your character only run when you press left or right? and not KEEP running.
I've still got a bunch of SNES carts like Contra 3, Mario RPG, Smash TV, and others. I know I can get the ROMs online, but my question is more which SNES games, in your opinion, are best on a touchscreen like the incredible? I tried Contra 3, but it really is unplayable...
Im new to the forum so if my issue has been mentioned before I apologies, but I cant find it. Ive downloaded Snesoid for my HTC Desire, the thing is, when I view demos on YouTube of Snesoid running it has the screen positioned to the right and the controller d-pad to the left. You will know what I mean if you go to this link. Code...
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.
