How To Load FDS Games

Unread post by Slypty »

Noob to the NES platform, just got my MiSTer in a few days ago. Still waiting on my SN-30 Dongle.

I've got NES games loading with no issues. I tried to follow the instruction on the Wiki for FDS games but running in to some trouble. Once I downloaded the boot0.rom BIOS, and put it in to the NES folder, i do get the FDS main screen (Please Set Disk Card.) If I try to load an FDS title, the FDS boot screen just starts again with out loading the game.

Am I overlooking anything?

My FDS Files work, I have used them previously with FDS Stick for re-writes. I'm naming the FDS files with a standard method of 'Metroid.fds' for example. I've changed the .fds to .FDS with no changes.

I notice that if I place the boot0.rom inside the NES Folder, the option to 'load the FDS BIOS' no longer appears. So I'm guessing up to that point it's right, any helps appreciated.

When the boot screen appears, press start to load the game.
