Once this is done, you simply set the Lock-On option to "Sonic & Knuckles" then you load any ROM like usual.In order to enable Lock-On emulation, you must provide the uncompressed Sonic & Knuckles ROM image (not included) and put it as “sk.bin” in the “/genplus” directory, on your default FAT device.In order to properly run Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with Lock-On technology, you also need to provide the extra chip (UPMEM) ROM image and put it as “sk2chip.bin”, along the previous file
It's right there in the Main Menu, bottom right of the screen, "SHOT icon". This is even described in the user manual which comes with screenshots of the emulator . Seriously, this gotta be the most featured manual I've ever seen in Wii homebrew so you better read it.Tried that but cannot find any option that says SNAP and i got S&K game selected as lock-on in the system options.

For what it's worth, I was not talking you like a noob, but answering your questions by quoting the user manual (yes, it's that PDF that comes with the emulator when you download it from official website).thanks for the replay [very helpful member] the only Manuel i was able to find was a PDF for the genplusgx emu and it just gave a generic overview of the feature which told me to have that rom in the ROMS folder also no file came with the download of the program explaining this too.and i did try placing a rom called sk.bin in the gen and still nothing when trying to use it with sonic 3. so anymore other tips [more knowledgeable about the emulator that I member] or you just going to keep talking to me like [the noob I am]?
And the advice still stands, read it because it actually comes with a detailled description of that feature (which I just quoted for you in my previous post). The part about ROMS folder is not about lock-on feature, it's about where ROM file are looked for by default when you load a game, the "lock-on" and "snapshot" features are described later in that document.
And you won't get any better "tips" because this is the only way to get it working, really: sk.bin ROM file goes into the /genplus directory (not "gen" or "gens" or "genplusgx") located at the root of SD or USB, same place where the config.ini file is, just don't mix it with the /apps/genplus directory which contains the boot.dol file and which is only used by the Homebrew Channel.
