Please fix the bugs While this is a great emulator, I have two major issues: 1. The audio compatibility issues. Some of the games like sonic are particularly lot faster than it originally was and should be fixed ASAP. Also the yamaha FM music mode doesn't seem to work at all. I tried r-type and power strike and none of them work at all. 2. The digitized sound effects and voices are completely absent and needs to be fixed ASAP. Again please fix these problem asap as they are great emulators aside from these major issues.

It works. The only real advantage this has over the free emulators is that it doesn't have ads. I'd love to have a better navigation feature. It was a pain in the butt finding the ROMS on my SD card. It would be fantastic if it had the ability to select a default folder to go to for roms, and would be even better on top of that if it had a cool home screen like Super Retro 16 (SNES emulator). It does play games fine though, and the sound and video quality is good. Worth 4.99? Probably not, but I got it with a gift card and I don't have to put up with ads, so hey.

Not a polished emulator I have 3 issues. Maybe you can help me. 1) Why is it every time I open the app, I must research for game files? In other emulators I only have to do it once. 2) Why does it list the file 3x or more when I only downloaded the Rom once? 3) Why does it show every rom? Even the ones for nintendo, n64, ds, and Gameboy. Is there only a way to get master system roms to display? Please help me. Thanks
