    TR30 how do you get the ROM's on to your TREO, I downloaded the demo emulator and don't know how to get the games onto the unit, do you need a sd card...Thanks

    Hey charrison, you first need to convert the ROMs (the .NES files) into a .pdb file using the ROM Installer (which should come with the demo). Once you hotsync them, the games will go into your Treo internally, but you can move them externally to the SD card (which I always do).

    The Demo version (v1.3) is kinda weak. Because you get to only play games that are like 41KB or less, which there are very few of. I believe the demo version should be able to play Super Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Kung Fu, Tennis, and few others. Also, the demo is not the latest version, 1.4beta is, but you can only download it if you purchase/register it. The big difference between 1.3 and 1.4beta is that 1.4beta has scaled up the screen resolution (almost full screen), the emulator is faster which eliminates most of the slow down/stuttering problem that occurred frequently on 1.3, and also you can assign the "lock" hard key (which you can't do in 1.3).

    With the tons of free NES games that you can get with the NesEm emulator, $19.95 is definitely worth the price IMO.

    If you have anymore questions/problems, don't hesitate to ask. Enjoy!

    [EDIT] OK, I found it, you need to register to get the beta

    I have a question for you guys running the NES emulator: how does it run? I have tried the demo and it seems too choppy to play. Did you do something/set prefs that allows it to run "normally"?

    I assume that I am doing something wrong since I find it hard to believe that a ~150Mhz proc cannot properly emulate something that originally ran on an 8Mhz proc.
    yep.

    TR30 sorry to bother you again, but how do you convert the ROM to pdb, I downloaded the demo, but I do not know how to convert, is this somwthing that has to be done on the pc or the treo, if its on the treo how do I get the file from my pc to my treo...Thanks

    I considered getting NesEm also, but after all the threads on here saying how horrible it ran on the Treo I decided to cross it off my list. However, if this new version is that greatly improved over the last one then maybe I will reconsider!

    I wish the demo was the latest version and full featured so we could really make a good purchase decision.

    No problem, charrison. There should be an .exe file called "Installer" which should be located in the RomInstaller folder. If you don't see it, you may need to re-download the demo. But if you do, here's what you do:

    1) On your PC, double-click on Installer.exe (NesEm Rom Installer window should appear)
    2) Select a name under "Palm User."
    3) Click "Add."
    4) Double-click on the ROM (.NES file) that you want installed.
    5) Click "Install."
    6) A message will pop up and just hit "OK."
    7) HotSync your phone.

    You should then be able to play the game on your phone. Hope this helps.

    Hey Krock, are you running version 1.3? If so, yes, the games do run choppy on that version. The latest version, 1.4beta, has improved a lot and most of my games are running smooth now.

    I installed NesEm and got the Arkanoid ROM and moved it over, etc... It shows up in the game chooser, but when I try to run it, the screen blanks and it goes back to the chooser. What gives? Maybe I have a bum rom?

    Hmm. The Donkey Kong rom does the same exact thing. I'm running (or trying to run) the 1.4 beta version.

    Looks like downloading the 1.4b version, I got the non-treo version. Waiting for email with right version... 1.3 seems to work however. Not crazy about the screen though... Maybe 1.4 looks better? The interface is cleaner on your screenshot.

    If you have a SD card, you can avoid the whole conversion process alltogether and just drag and drop the NES roms directly onto your card - no conversion necessary. As to the resolution, it is better than the earlier demo, but it hurts my eyes after a while. Gizmo, the game gear emulator, doesn't have these problems and runs smoother than NesEm 1.4. Of course, the game gear library isn't quite as extensive (or familiar), but there are quite a few ports that I enjoy playing. Cheaper, too.

    Yep, 1.3 was the only demo version they had posted when I checked it out. Have they finally posted a new demo version? If so I will try it out.
    yep.

    I heard that people who got the wrong version (like the Clie version or something) will get the problem you're getting. So you just need to make sure you got the Treo 600 version.


    Yeah, screen size is definitely better on the 1.4 version since they took out the top menu buttons.
