    Do a Web Search for Emulators. We have a few topics here too, so search the board as well.

    First, make sure you have some NES ROMs. They are files ending in .NES extension. Usually posting NES ROMs are illegal so I won't do it. =(

    In any case, here are the steps:

    0. Copy your NES ROMs to somewhere in your mini SD.

    1. Go here: http://tillanosoft.com/ce/tgetfile.html

    2. Download tGetFile by clicking on "tgfdllsp43e.zip" for Smartphone, CE 3.0 or higher. The link to this is: http://tillanosoft.com/anonymous_ftp/pub/ce/tgfdllsp43e.zip - download this to your computer.

    3. Unzip tgfdllsp43e.zip.

    4. Copy the unzipped files to somewhere on your mini SD. You probably don't need all these files but you can delete them later.

    5. Go to http://www.modaco.com/index.php?showtopic=237915&hl=pocketnester

    6. Download PocketNesterPlus.rar from the first post to your computer.

    7. Unzip PocketNesterPlus.rar. Copy PocketNesterPlus.exe from the zip to your mini SD.

    8. mini SD should now have the necessary files.

    9. Navigate to the folder where you saved tGetFile. Double click on tgetfile.spvarm.CAB. This will install the DLL.

    10. You will get various prompts asking you if it's OK. Click YES through all of them. Afterwards, it will begin installing.

    11. After it's done installing, execute PocketNesterPlus.exe.

    12. Chances are that your screen will be weirdly flipped, so go to Options --> Display, then select "Landscape Left." Select OK.


    13. Click File --> Open ROM... navigate to your ROM directory.

    14. Click on a ROM.


    You can configure further settings like control by going to options.


    Also, setting up the directional buttons can be a bit tricky. When I play games on my pc, I use the ASDW standard - W for up, S for down, A for left, and D for right. To make this work, I used the following:

    up: d key
    down: a key
    left: w key
    right: s key

    This might not make sense when you look at it, but it works.

    Check out this website for a how-to that's extremely simple:
    http://www.smartphonesmarts.com/2006/06/running_pocketnesterplus_on_yo.html

    As for ROMs, the website recommends a couple, but I'd rather choose them individually than have to dig through 2000+ someodd games. Check out this place to download roms separately:
    http://www.theoldcomputer.com/Libarary's/Emulation/NES/ROMs/NES_roms_summary.htm

    I followed the directions on the link I just gave you and grabbed ROMs from the other link and my PocketNESter is working great. Don't have too much fun!

    Thank you for the detailed explaination. I did everything and wasn't able to get the emulator to work. I finally decided to download the "tgfdllsp43e.zip" and it worked perfectly (after I rebooted my MotoQ...the download didn't work intially).

    Thanks again for being so helpful and informative!!!

    When out of the emulator, hold the scroll wheel down and set the earpiece volume to about 20%. Open a game and enjoy at a pleasant volume!

    Help NEWBE

    I really would like some games to play on the Q. I can't seem to find where to get Pocketnester (one site had a choice between MIPS and ARM). Where do I get games? and how to install.

    Thanks

    How do you load a saved game?

    I'm having the same problem. I can save games, but I can't load them. I get this message: Error: Can not open or Mapper not support.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.
