This serves as an answer sheet for the most Frequently Asked Questions regarding the download sites and its contents.
What is an Emulator?
A: It is a PC program that mimics a game console's operating system, enabling PC users to play games normally played on game consoles only.
What is a Game Console?
A: Game Consoles are either handheld (portable) or non-portable machines that run games. Example of game consoles are SNES and GBA.
What is a ROM?
A: It is a file that contains the game. It can only be read by an Emulator. By the way, don't expect SNES emulators to read GBA ROMs or GBA emulators to read SNES ROMs. They are specifically designed for their counterpart emulators.
The Files are in .zip, .rar, etc. format and cannot be read by the emulators. What do I do?
A: Most emulators support reading compressed files in .zip or .rar file formats, these are compressed files, however, to unzipped (decompressed), you need a utility called WinZip or WinRAR. Go to the Downloads page and download WinRAR, then use the utility to decompress the file in its original format. Now, use the emulator to open it.
How do I install the emulators?
A: Read the documentation found within or with the emulator. Most emulators do not need to be installed, just put them in a folder and run their primary .exe (executable) file. You may need to configure the emulator though.
Is this legal?
A: Yes, if you own the game console that corresponds to your emulator, same with the ROM. No, if you don't have the game console and the game pack.
