is there a emulator tutorial on here for playing snes roms, i have downloaded some and a snes gx .dol file but i don`t know how to get it working, i have 4.2e with homebrew on it
an emulator is just like any homebrew app in that it's .dol file sits inside of a folder that is inside the apps folder.
also alot of the emulators will have a folder in the root with the same name as the one in the apps. the one in the root will usually have folders for roms and saves.

Setup & Installation
Unzip the archive. You will find the following folders inside:
* apps - Contains Homebrew Channel ready files (see Homebrew Channel instructions below)
* snes9x - Contains the directory structure required for storing roms, saves, and cheats (see below)
Via Homebrew Channel
The most popular method of running homebrew on the Wii is through the Homebrew Channel. If you already have the channel installed, just copy over the apps folder included in the archive into the root of your SD card.
Remember to also create the snes9x directory structure required. See above.
By default, roms are loaded from "snes9x/roms/".
Your SNES rom images must be in SMC, SFC, SWC, or FIG format. Generally, all images you find will be in this format, but if you run across one that isn't please download RTOOL which will allow you to convert the image into SMC format.
* ROMs can be burned to a DVD-/+R (4.7GB max size & ISO 9660 file format) but you need to install DVDx on your Wii.
From Network (via SMB)
Using the emulator via network requires that your Wii is configured for your wireless network, and that you've set up a file share. You must provide a username, password, share name, and IP address to log in to the file server (in settings.xml). This XML file is created for you upon first loading the emulator and entering/exiting Preferences. Here's an example snippet for your XML configuration file:
Homebrew Channel 1.0.6 | Internet Channel | Sys Menu 4.1e | NeoGamma R8 b15 | Preloader .30 r3 | cIOS38 r14 | Wad Manager 1.5 | cIOSCORP 3.5 | DVDX v2 | Mplayer CE | WiiGator GC Backup Launcher Ver 2.0 | Wii64 Nintendo 64 Emulator | Homebrew Browser V 0.3.6 | IOSCheck V 0.3.6
