Could you add a confirmation for the reset of a game?

Can i confirm, is this an expansion of your test launcher, with the same ingame menu etc?

Assuming the “a26” folder is for 2600 roms, and “a78” covers Lynx roms? Also, what format should the roms be in for either system, and are any bios files required in the rom directory?

I currently believe I have everything where it belongs and no roms for either system seem to be present, even though I can see them on the SD card.

The Lynx roms should be in a subfolder of the roms-folder named "lynx" and should have the extension ".lnx"

Don't forget to put the "lynxboot.img" in this Folder, too!

The atari 2600 I havn't tested yet...

It is intended as an alternative to the springboard application which is in the GO-Play firmware.

While porting and tuning the Lynx emulator I did not think twice about the folder naming. With this version the folder can also be named "lnx". The other emulators are also structured this way that the "file extensions" matches the folder names.

/roms/lnx
/roms/a26

Okay, I have the Lynx side working now.

Any similar pointers for the 2600?

For testing I removed all folders except "/roms/a26". I still can start the games. I am unsure what's wrong.

The file ending for Atari 2600 must be ".a26" and they must not be compressed.

Very impressive. I really like in the lynx emulator it asks if I want to save state when I press menu!

I think you should bundle the metadata with the .fw, it would make installation/updates a single step process.
