Emulators in .dol Format
Managed to get the Sega Genesis emulator installed and working without a problem
However when it comes to the N64, Snes and Scumm I am having no luck
The difference being that the Sega Genesis was a .was file and was easily installed using wad manager. The other 3 emulators are .dol files and do not appear when I load up wad manager to install them
Any ideas how to fix this - are any of the above available in .wad format?
you have to put them in the apps section of your SD card and then go into the HomeBrew Channel to load them.
Damn, tried it and it crashes every time!
Starts loading and then just freezes!
Made sure everything was in my apps folder too, I'll have another look at my sd card to make sure nothing is in there that shouldnt be
make sure that everything in your apps folder is in their own folders and that "whatevernamehere.dol" is changed to "boot.dol"
I deleted everything from the sd card apart from the apps folder
It does not crash when I enter the sd menu now, however there is no folder to select - flipped through the 20 screens - would have thought the apps folder would be showing?????
Managed to get the Snes emulator working - found a .wad file.
Just the N64 ( is there a full working emultor for it? ) and Scumm now
are you loadign these through the System Menu or the Homebrew Channel? cause that would be your problem, you need to load them through the Homebrew Channel.

If your wii is online try using the homebrew browser. It will download your emulator to your sd card and let you know if updates are available- no pc required once setup.
I tried loading them through the Homebrew Channel - I am presuming the wad installer????
I select apps in there but none of the emulators show up
.dol are not used in the Wad Installer program, they are self contained programs that are run through the Homebrew channel. your SD card should look like this SD -> apps [folder]-> genesis [folder]-> genesis.dol, readme.txt [or whatever kinda text] and possibly an xml file of some sort [thats not true for everything i am just generalizing]
You could also do what mauifrog suggested, just get homebrew browser, load it through homebrew channel and there is a whole section for emulators that will make it's own folders respectivly onto the SD card [by far the easiest way to accomplish the task you need to get done] if you have WiFi that is.

Cant see Homebrew Browser on my set up and my SD card keeps crashing every time - even if I delete everything bat the apps folder!
