ROMs all say bad checksum, though they play in Nestopia

Post ROMs all say bad checksum, though they play in Nestopia
Hello. I'm posting here in the hope that some one can help me with a little issue I am having. I've used the search tool and I haven't found anything pertaining to what I'm seeing, but that doesn't mean I didn't miss it. At any rate, here is my problem. I have zsnes (btw i'm too stupid to learn the name of the emulator) installed on a computer running Ubuntu 9.10. Whenever I try to load a rom, it tells me that there is a checksum error and locks the computer up. My other computer is a Windows machine, however, and I can load the same rom in Nestopia and it works fine. zsnes (btw i'm too stupid to learn the name of the emulator) on Windows gives them same result. Does anyone have any idea what the issue is?

...are you trying to load NES games into ZSNES? If so, you are an idiot.

ZSNES is a SUPER NES emulator. which means you'll need SUPER NES ROMs to load in it. Don't ask for them, use Google.

If you want to play games with nestopia, here is the Linux version (you must build from source.)


Alternatively, you can try gfceu (which should be in your Ubuntu repos)

sudo apt-get install gfceu

I can't comment on it, but people seem to like it.

My personal choice for emulation is mednafen (also in Ubuntu repos.) and MESS

I can. It sucks terribad. It DOES play games, however, so that is why people will recommend it. As for nestopia, roughly 2/3 of linux users can't use their OS or follow step-by-step instructions, so they won't recommend it. Although when Canonical is fucking up shit in the desktop because they don't know how to fix underlying problems and "have to release something new every 6 months", those step-by-step instructions quickly become outdated anyways so I don't blame them.

As for on-topic, OP is an idiot. But if it helps you sleep at night, I'm sure your mom loves you anyways.

Seriously, OP, you deserve the ridicule you are getting.

However, I am locking this.
