I have a question..... Can somebody help me understand how this parent and clone work??? What's the formula??? For example I'm trying to get cadillac dinosaurs to work, and when I looked at your list I see 4 or 3 zips. I know that Cadillac dinosaur world is the parent, so that means I only need one clone, or two, or which ones??? Plz help!!!

Oh and before I forget.... Great job with this whole website I love it!!!
What's not to understand? A parent will run without any other ROMs (unless BIOS are required) and a clone needs a parent in order to run. You technically don't need any clones if you are using all parents. Sometimes the clone can be as simple as another variation of the parent in a different language, with a different feature set, or a simple color palette/graphics swap or it can be an entirely different game based off the parent's hardware.
Thank you for making that clear...
Thanks for all the work you've done.
I'd like to contribute and say that X-Men: Children of the Atom, Marvel Super Heroes, and X-Men vs. Street Fighter do not work. They crash immediately upon loading. I am using the parent and not clones, so they probably just don't work on this emulator. I am on 0.6, but I wouldn't think that would keep them from running if they would have ran on 0.5 - but that could be wrong.
Seems like a lot of games are not working for me, but I got some going.
I noticed something about parents / clones though. It seems that if you copy the files from a parent .zip into a clone .zip, the clone itself will then work on its own. It worked for Arkanoid, Slap Fight, Pac-Man and Ninja Gaiden at least. It let me play certain clone versions I prefer while keeping the menu from being cluttered with multiple versions of the same game.
Might work for other games, if anyone gives this a try I'd like to know how it goes.
Update 2: Seems to work with BIOSes too. Shoved the Atari BIOS files inside the Marble Madness .zip and it worked.
I notice that all the games that capcom made don't work on this emulator ( dinosaurs and Cadillac, capitan commando, three wonders, etc) I'm using parents but I don't know if I need any bios for theses games. If anybody knows plz help!!! I'll keep trying to make this games work bc they are great!!! I softmod my wii using maugfrogs tutorial for any wii and I just did the update.
Pretty much all CPS1 titles work. CPS2 titles are a mixed bag. I really need to get back on this list but I've been so busy lately.
Darkcide ,do you have the compat list in .xls form ?
Nah...I don't use Window so no...I could create one with OOo I think?!?!?
