Thanks Techmaster. I think your suggestion about the ROMs is what is part of the problem. I now have DonkeyKong, Tempest, SuperZaxxon, etc. running. Frogger, Galaxian and other games don't run though. Perhaps it depends on the ROMs. I had one ROM set of DKong that didn't run at all but found another one that does run.
What is the difference with the various ROM sets you find out there? Is it versioning or just buggy ROM sets?
Anyway, I'm slowly making some progress but am still not sure why Frogger and some others won't run. I'll keep trying. Great app - this is one of the coolest things I've seen yet.
