Emulator ROMs is a database of ROMS for different platforms from which you can download thousands of ROMs.
First thing, what has impressed us is the Android Market-like interface. The navigation through the application is quite similar. Use the search bar to find those ROMs of classic videogames that you're looking for. One of its strong points is that you can even download the emulator of those platforms from this app. The database is huge. And its ease of use makes the search fast and intuitive. It includes ROMs for NES/FC, SNES/SFC, GBA, MD/Genesis, PSX. Emulator ROMs Plus also includes these ones + N64, GB/GBC, GameGear.
You should take in account that the later videogames platforms (always taking in account that we're talking about classics consoles) like PSX needs lots of free storage for the emulator and the roms. You'll probably need to save them in the SDcard. Some other bugs have been reported. Check the developer description out to know if they concern you device and if they have already been solved.
Emulator ROMs has been developed by coolcode.org, an emerging developer who has launched some apps and games to the market with remarkably success.
If you are a nostalgic of classic games, you should give a try to his app. Maybe it's not the most complete database, but you will find the essential games, and the interface to search and find (looks like Android Market) is intuitive. It's worth the 4 stars, and we'll probably get the fifth once all the bugs will be solved.
* If you can't download any game(FC), you can try to disable WiGame in Setting Page.
* If you can't download games, and be told to try again. You can change the download server in Setting Page.
* If you updated to the new version tiger emulator, and can't play game(always FC), you need uninstall tiger emulator first, and install it again, then you can play the games. It's the bug's of the Tiger Emulator, not a bug of this app.
* If some roms can't be played or crash, that maybe the bugs of the emulator app not the bugs of Emulator ROMs.
* If you used Tiger emulators, report the bugs to tiger king
* If you used yongzh's emulators, report the bugs to yongzh
* If you used ZodTTD's emulators(such as psx4droid), report this bugs to ZodTTD
* IF YOU NEED MULTI-TOUCH, YOU SHOULD HAVE ANDROID 2.1+, AND YOUR HARDWARE (Such as samsang GALAXY S, GALAXY Tab, etc.) MUST BE SUPPORTED.
* PSX Game need High-profile device, and PSX 3D Game on High-profile device also slow. zodTTD(the author of psx4droid) will support hardware acceleration in the future on some device(NOT ALL). if you want run faster, please send email to him, not comment here, because he can't see any comment leaves here.
* PSX ROM is so large, you need have enough sdcard space to download and unzip them.
* PSX ROMs are not all work well. if you find some ROM can't work, try to change PSX BIOS, or try the options in psx4droid's setting page. If it also can't work, please email to psx4droid's authors, they will help you.
* if you don't know HOW TO MAKE PSX games to work. PLEASE run PSX4DROID FIRST, and then read its HELP.
* But if you find download is so slow. it's maybe have two reasons. First, between different network access provider is too slow to communicate. Second, too many people download, the server is too busy.
* The permission of "Phone calls" is used by the ads only. It can be trusted. This app never access your phone call infos.
* If you can't play SNES Mario RPG or other SNES games, please check the emulator setting. In Snesoid (Snesoid Lite), selected Other settings, check the Advanced Use "C" core [Runs more games (eg. Super Mario RPG) but in slower speed], and then restart the emulator, you can play it.
* Why makes the Tiger emulators as the primary emulators? Because it's free & full. You can save & load records of the game in Tiger emulators and it's more friendly for the enduser. If you don't like Tiger emulators, you can remove them all. If you love to pay for yongzh's emulators, it's well. they also work perfectly with this app as tiger's emulators. But most user can't pay for them, because android market limited.
If you want download or unzip in background, press HOME button, please. NOT BACK button.
* For legal reasons, please ensure that you own the physical game that you are downloading the ROM for.
