Introduction to emulators, Step by Step Guide
Emulator: Most of you might know what this is, but for those of you who don't, here is a description of an emulator. an Emulator is stimulating a gaming system on your PC or system. for example, you are on your computer, and you don't have a game boy, or Nintendo DS; you use an emulator to stimulate a game boy or Nintendo DS. This emulator allows one to play game boy or Nintendo DS roms on your computer. you can also emulate many other systems.
Rom/ISO: These are basically the images or pictures of the actual game. for example, Pokemon Diamond, Or Super Smash bros. these games are converted from a game cartridge, or a CD, so that one can run it on their PC or MAC. if you are wondering what ISO means, it is an abbreviation for International Organization for Standardization. I know weird right? The ISO is basically a format that is supported by many different sellers. Wondering what ROM stands for? ROM stands for Read Only Memory (ROM). It is a computer memory that can permanently store different kinds of data and all sorts of applications within it. Don't get ROM confused with RAM though guys. ROMS unlike RAMS, stay on your computer when you power it off.
Step 1: Well first, we need an Emulator right? so find your emulator, you can choose from Visual Boy Advance, or you may use DS emulators like N0$gba, or Desmume to emulate your gameboy games. there are plenty of articles just use that search bar, or scan the nintendo section. (or if your lazy ask for a link).
Step 2: We need some ROMS! we have a very large selection of ROM and game ISO files on this site. if you want a rom, and we do not have it here, please request it and i will post a link for the download. to help you out. after your rom download, extract all files within it, and your all set.
Step 3: now that you have your emulator downloaded, and your rom files extracted, all you need to do is run your emulator, and drag your rom to the emulator. at least you drag it for visual boy advance. every emulator is different. there is a spectular guide toxic jew made on the no$gba with settings to save game ect.. if you have any questions post here, or look them up. there are plenty of guides, posts, and people willing to help.
Extra Information: On this site we also have plenty of gameshark, or action replay codes. we also have plenty of coders here as well. so if your looking to make your game play a little easier, or a lot more fun, you may find the codes needed within this site. there are plenty of tutorials, and threads upon codes. how to make them, how to put them in your emulator ect.. and thats the introduction to emulators with the somewhat in depth guide. hope you enjoyed!
