    what i want to do is make a program to run that basic sdlgnuboy [gb & gbc emulator]

    all i want it to do is ask me what rom i want to choose, and then make it run that path in terminal... how do i do this lol?

    [i dont want to have to keep typing in the paths each time...]

    Try this tell me if it works I can't test it cause I couldn't get the emulator running (ironic isn't it)
    For it to work
    1. main.js in the sdlgnuboy.app has to have permission 0755 same with jiggy
    2. All roms are in the following directory /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBC/
    can you try it out and give me feedback?

    1.this will run sdlgnuboy "thats the only build i got working"
    2.rom names must not contain exteaneous symbols ex (?!:;$&@"'
    3.names must be one word
    4.all previous rules from my second post apply

    yeah same with me, sdlgnuboy seems to be the only "stable" release

    but good news is im on 1.1.4 and the gui was working great.

    once you release it, i'm going to link this over to the gb/gbc emulator forum were zacaj was attempting to put together a gui also

    for some reason it won't let you exit the game once it is started but I will try to fix it. However it will for know load and run your games put in the GBC folder I specified a post ago.
    Try that for now to quit you have to restart your device (it sucks I know...)

    sorry to inform you, but i tried everything i knew, which includes setting all permissions to 755

    but...

    it hangs after i choose a room, and then when i hit the home button, it goes to the springboard and then shows the spinning cog and resprings
