Thanks Techmaster,

I tried a few of the basic sets without success, but I haven't had too much time to play around with the emu. The GX.dll issue probably varies depending on which shell/version is being used. I'm now inclined to believe that the memory issue is more of a big deal than the GX.dll issue.
