    Could somebody please help me. I see lots of discussions on an NES emulator. Is that the same as the Game Boy Advance emulator. I have searched but i cant find anything.

    I am new to iPod touches and am getting one for Christmas on Tuesday! I know exactly what i am to do about jail breaking, getting iPhone apps and even installing the GBA emulator, cant wait.

    Has anyone actually bricked their iPod touch or mucked it up properly because my mum

    Thanks in advance!

    diffrence

    The diffrence is that the roms have come from diffrent machines
    i.e
    The nes is roms from the Nintendo Entertainment System.
    The GBA is from the gameboy advance.
    The psx4iphone is for playstation1 /x.

    each of the origanl machines had diffrent graphics etc it is a personal preffrence which games you preffer.

    i though i had bricked my ipod touch but if you use force reinstall as shown in many threads you will get your ipod back.

    NES stands for Nintendo Entertainment System. It has the original mario and donkey kong games. (among many others) It came out at the tail end of the 70's or right at the beginning of the 80's. Years before the gameboy. (the NES was a system, not portable like the gameboy. It stayed in one spot in your house and hooked up to the tv. Just like N64)

    search

    hi if you install the correct source into your ipod installer you can get some nes roms from there.

    also if you search google for something like gba roms or nes roms you should be good.

    or search the forum and find someone who is offering links if you pm them.

    NES can't do what GBA does. GBA is like a much more advanced NES with better graphics, sound, and a greater variety of games. GBA>>>>>>>>>>>NES

    Wow, I can't believe this kid is literate(It's a good thing). The NES is not that old. Makes me sad the knew generations have little understanding of their videogame heritage.
