Title: Problem with zipped roms?
Post by: MusicNomad on December 21, 2011, 07:28:32 PM
I bumped into something that's puzzled me.  I have a zipped rom of Mario Cart that put me back to the menu screen when I tried opening it but opens perfectly fine when unzipped. I've opened other zipped roms before but it's weird because some will open, some will close to the menu screen.

Anyone else experience this? It's not a huge deal but sort of unusual

Im not sure if zip support is fully functional yet. What format is your zip file? zip, 7z, rar?

I got a super mario 64 zipped rom to run but I havent tested any other games.

all of my zipped roms seem to run fine but they all have only one rom per zip file.

It's a zip file but I noticed that there is a readme file in the folder that the emulator may be trying to open.

After removing the readme file the problem seemed to be solved. I'm not sure what the emulator defaults to if there's more than one file in the zipped folder.  All my zipped roms have this readme in them but only a few had the problem. Anyways, solution found :)

This will be fixed in the next update.  I think this is what's causing most of the negative ratings, since Game Hunter produces zip files like this.  Thanks for pointing it out!
