Hello all,

Can someone please give me a step-by-step tutorial for installing the LittleJohn emulator system on my Centro, and also how to play the ROM (game) files. Thanks!!

===Installation Instructions===
1. You need a device with PalmOS 5.0 or better, and an SD card or internal file system (Tungsten|T5, LifeDrive, Zodiac)

2. Install "ljp.prc" using "install tool" & "hotsync" or copy it in "/Palm/Launcher" on your SD card

3. Upon first launch, it will create all the needed directories & register the .zem extension so you can hotsync the .zem files directly (the .zem files are the 'emulation modules')

4. Copy "ljp-stuff.zem" and the modules you want (nes->ljp-nes.zem, gb->ljp-gb.zem, ...) in "/Palm/Programs/LJP" (NOT in the system directory, for example "/NES") or use the install tool & hotsync. If you use hotsync to do this, be sure to run LJP once before to register the .zem extension. (needed after each crash/reset too!) (into the SD Card)

5. Copy your roms in the right folder, depending on the system (see directories layout below) using either a card reader or the "mp3" trick (rename the ROM file to .mp3, .prc or .pdb, hotsync it to the SD card and use a program like FileZ (freeware) to rename to the original extension and to move the file to the right directory). There's also a (shareware) program called Card Export (from Softick) which turns your Palm-powered PDA into a card reader. LifeDrive/Tungsten|T5 users can also take advantage of Drive Mode to access the SD card/internal volume directly.

I've downloaded the .prc files and copied into into the Launcher, but I can't seemed to figure out how to get the .zem files on there. Any ideas? In the original zipped download, if I click on a .zem file, it says "Windows cannot open this file". Any thoughts?

The zem files will have to go onto your sd card. I'm not sure what directory little john will want it in.
