After some testing Not all SMS games work, like Altered Beast.

Plus an option to go back to rom list would be nice LOL pain in the butt to keep quitting just to switch games

Hey Aba, did you keep them in .zip files? It's the only supported format at this time (also make sure it isn't in .7z format as it boots you back to the XMB). I tested SMS, NES, and GBA so far with no problems. Hope that helps sir

You will have to use Google for ROMs, there are thousands of sites for them so it shouldn't be difficult and I don't want people spamming them here sorry.

If you read the post, it does say :- "Currently Mednafen only supports zipped roms, as there was a bug with unzipped roms (fix coming soon)."
