Thread: Help with NES games...

  1. #1
    Default Help with NES games...
    I just downloaded the .rar files A-Z of the NES games, but how do I get them onto my iphone? Do I have to install a certain program to get them on there, or can I drag n drop them through itunes?
    Also, I have already downloaded the NES emulator from the InstallApp application.

    any help is appreciated

    Default Nes
    Open up /var/root/media ( im sure this is the path)and add a new folder called ROMs then within that open another folder called NES and place the de-compressed files into that. If on windows use something line CuteFTP to place the ROMs.

    Remember that ROMs must be written exactly like i have with the first 3 letters in caps and the last in lower case.

    1.. install BSD subsystem
    (from list of apps available from Installer)

    2. install OpenSSH
    (from list of apps available from Installer)

    3. Get a SFTP program to SSH to your iphone from your computer
    (If using a MAC try FuGu or Transmit.)
    http://www.versiontracker.com/php/qs...=all&submit=Go

    4. SFTP settings: Server will be your IP address of your iphone, User = root, password = dottie or alpine.
    (get your iphones IP address from Settings->Wifi->click the arrow next to the wifi network you are connected to. you'll then see your IP address)

    5 var/root/media/ROMs/NES , You may need to create the ROMs and/or NES folders. This is the directory you'll place your NES ROMs.

    a .rar file is a type of compressed file. It is similar to a .zip file. You can use winrar to unrar them, also you could use winzip.

    Once you extract the files then you typically have two files, a readme.txt and ROMNAME.nes. You only put the .nes file onto your phone.

    you can also use ibrikr if your having trouble loading the file onto the phone. You just create your folders and load it into the right directory.
