    yes I decompress the files first, then try to add the file to my emu., but to no avail. My computer keeps telling me it needs to know what program created it first. It does that for all programs I download.

    yes i'm uncompressing my rar files. My ip won't find the extention? that it needs to run the file

  • Morphaeus Mar 18, 2008

    I have mozilla firefox as my ip. Every time I download a program, any program or file, I uncompress it and when I try to run it after installation it says that it first has to find what program created it. It won't allow me to use any program or file that I download.

  • Morphaeus Mar 19, 2008

    o.k. I download the program and it enters a sub menu. Then I extract all files and when my files are done extracting an error message appears telling me that the program can't run without finding what created it first.

    OK, Firefox isn't your IP, it's just your browser.

    I also use Firefox, and never ran into that when downloading any files. I usually just save them to my desktop, or wherever, and manually decompress them.

    Where exactly are you saving the downloaded files? It sounds as though you're trying to execute the file from within Firefox. Where do you have Firefox configured to save the files?

    Sorry for all the questions, I am just trying to get a better understanding of what is causing the problem.

    I'm not sure what you mean by your 'IP' won't find the extension.

    Is this happening on any particular file, or all of them?

    Are you un-compressing the rar files first?

HOW CAN I PLAY A POKEMON EMERALD VERSION IN PC


All GBA games are playable on pc. For that you need an emulator and the GBA game rom. The best emulator for running GBA games on pc is visual boy advance and you can download it from the following link:

http://www.coolrom.com/emulators/gba/14/Visual_Boy_Advance.php

And you can download the pokemon emerald rom from the following link:

http://www.coolrom.com/roms/gba/14604/Pokemon_Emerald.php

After downloading the emulator and rom, extract it to any folder and run the emulator. Before opening the rom, you need to configure the buttons to play the game.

To do that, goto options->joypad->configure->1 and select the buttons that you want to use and then click Ok.

Then drag and drop the rom file into the emulator, and play.

good luck!!!

We don.t understand how to use the multiplayer option so more then one can play together on thier pc


  • put the GBA BIOS file in the emulator's folder, and rename it to "gba.rom"
  • run No$GBA.exe
  • pick a GBA image (no ZIP)
  • go to "Options" / "Emulation setup"
  • increase the number of "Emulated Gameboys"
  • in "Link Gamepaks", set "Gamepaks in all GBA"
  • in "Reset/Startup Entrypoint", set "GBA BIOS (Nintendo logo")
  • click OK, you should then see 2 GBA screens side by side
  • right click on the left window, click on "Link" so that the window comes back to normal.
  • then redo the right-click and click "Link" , and here we go, the 2nd gameboy does boot!
Please remember that the more gameboy's you emulate the stonger the pc will have to be!

Cant play nintendo games


OK. First of all to play NDS roms on the computer is almost not possible. The emulator for NDS are not very good and have really bad framerates so i would abandon the idea of playing them on your pc. If you still want to try then go to http://www.emulator-zone.com/ download the emulator ou want. Check that your roms are all unzipped before you try to run them and have the right file ending. snes=.srm or smc nds=.nds nes= .nes hope this helps.

how to download games in gba emulator??

I need .nes files


Impossible.
GBA files are games for a Game Boy Advance emulator (such as Virtual Boy Advance).
NES files are games for a Nintendo Entertainment System (the video game console we used to play when I was a little kid) emulator.

Both console don't work the same way, so do their games. So, technically, it's impossible to convert GBA roms to the NES format.

Hello


See listen kid...firstly this explanation is long, but it has every thing you need to know in detail...ok now we'll start the explanation.....there are many game boy emulators which you can download
the best one for a game boy rom (the game files are called roms) is 'visualboy advance' known popularly as 'vba' for short(I think the latest version is 1.7.2 but any version will do). To play a rom(gameboy game file) double click the icon and a window might appear saying if you want to run the file, cilck run, then another window will appear, click file from the menu, then click open/open gameboy(same thing), then search for the rom file(gameboy games file) and double click.

I downloaded my vba from this site http://www.gameboy-advance-roms.com/gba_emulator.htm
just scroll down a bit and you'll find 2 purple gamboy advance type icon thingys....click the first link then on the next page click the link you see then just follow the rest and download according to your computer system(for windows chose any of the first three links)

This emulator can play gameboy black and white games(file extension is .gb) , gameboy colour games(file extension is .gbc), and gameboy advance games(file extension is .gba) only!! not gameboy NDS, gameboy NES, or gameboy 64, for these gameboy games you need other emulators go to this site for emulators http://www.emulator-zone.com BUT games also have to be downloaded and this site does not offer copyright roms(gameboy games files)

but dont lose hope...there are other sites from which you can freely download roms(gameboy games files) you can download the games then try and see if they work on your emulator. If they work properly, then I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO PLEASE BUY THE ORIGINAL GAME CARTRIDGE because it is actually ILLEGAL TO JUST DOWNLOAD THE GAME FOR FREE (I suppose you've heard of the word piracy or pirated cds??)to search for a game just type the game name followed by roms for example, you want the pokemon emrald game right?? so just type "pokemon emerald roms" in the search bar of a search engine(such as google) you may get a huge list but be patient and search through the sites and you'll find it. heres a site from me to you (^_^) http://www.mxemu.com/romshare.php
If you cant find any rom that you want then search another site.

And make sure that your anti-virus program is good or your computer could get infected and break down(and that is not what you want to happen...trust me)

BUT AS I SAID EARLIER I WOULD SUGGEST YOU TO PLEASE BUY THE ORIGINAL GAME CARTRIDGE
Other than that....happy gaming!! Hope this solved your question(^_^)
