Must Have Applications for Side-Loading

Last Updated: Feb 21, 2012

Hi Everyone,

Disclaimer:  I am not responsible for making these apps, so please give credit where it is due in the individual threads.

I thought I would provide a new update for everyone one on:

MUST have applications you need to sideload today.  Don’t know how to Sideload?  Check here.  For you Mac users, you may need to create a VirtualBox with Windows or some other emulation trick.

DGEN, Download, Forum Link * NEW

Allows you to play Genesis ROMS’s

GBColor, Download, Forum Link * NEW

Allows you to play Genesis ROMS’s

PCSX-ReARMed, Download, Forum Link

Note:  Install app.  Run once to create folders and exit.  Save this bios file to PB\media\misc\pcsx-rearmed-pb\bios.  Save your ISO’s to PB\media\misc\pcsx-rearmed-pb\iso.

MeltChip/CHIP8, Download, Forum Link

Note: Find the actual files here on the github.  Not sure, but the rom might need to be compiled at buildtime in the NDK.

ZX Spectrum 48,128 emulator, Download, Forum Link

Note: “The top left of the screen opens up a menu and file selector option. From the menu selector you can navigate around your filesystem and load .sna .tzx .zip speccy games.  For now you’ll have to also select beeper, tape or AY for audio depending on the mode of the emulator so it’s a couple of steps to get a game loaded.”  Roms here.  Torrent here.

Unzip the roms anywhere.  For example, lets say misc/roms/zx.  To find this, browse to accounts/1000/shared/misc/roms/zx.
