How To: SNES and NES Nintendo DS Emulators

Want to play some classic games? Read on.

To be honest, this is a relatively simple way to play SNES and NES games on your Nintendo DS. What you will need though, is a homebrew compatible Nintendo DS card such as an R4DS, M3 DS or DS-Xtreme.

Now, there is a readme file included within the downloadable archive but i'll show you the general process here too.

When you have downloaded the archive from the link provded, you will have to extract the contents with a program such as WinRAR.

When you have done this, you will have the files 'README', 'snemul.cfg', 'NES' folder and 'SNES' folder.

What you have to do is copy the folders to the root of your Nintendo DS homebrew card. You also have to copy snemul.cfg into the root of the card.

You can then insert the card into your Nintendo DS and select which emulator you would like to use. Both of which are located in the labelled folder.

When the emulator had loaded, you can select which game you would like to play from the list of ROMs that are in the folder (there are a few included)

There you have it! You can now play SNES and NES games on your Nintendo DS. The good thing about it is that all of the ROMs that i have tried have worked (Street Fighter, Zelda, etc)

ROMs Included:

SNES - Castlevania - Dracula X, Super Mario All-Stars, Super R-Type, X-Men - Mutant Apocalypse
NES - Arkanoid, Burger Time, Contra, Galaga

The following sites are where you can download other ROMs for SNES and NES:

If you are having any troubles, or the download link for the emulators have expired, post a comment and i will help/re-upload.

Earn Money Searching Google

This site has been around for a while but only previously used the Ask search engine. They now use Google as their main search engine!

Basically, you get paid to search Google. All you have to do is use their search bar as your main search in FireFox, like so:

The site pays with PayPal or Cheque and the currency is in GBP(£). This is pretty cool as i've never seen a site where GBP is the standard currency. Another great thing about this is that you lucky US people can pretty much double your earnings to get the dollar equivalent.

Now, a post like this wouldn't be worth anything without proof that they have paid me:

So there you have it. Go and check them out!

BBC iPlayer for PS3

Eventhough the BBC has now announced they are creating an official way to access the BBC iPlayer on the PS3, someone found a way to port the Wii version onto the PS3.

The URL is and can only be viewed on the PS3's built in web browser. I've tested it myself and everything works flawlessly and you can even view in full screen, too. All the menus work great and there is not much else to comment on. A job well done to be honest.

The BBC have also apparently offered the person responsible for this a job!

Some Idiot Talking Rubbish About PS3 In MSN Article

I'm talking about this article.

What an idiot. I'm going to go through a few bits of the article to show you just how much of an idiot this guy is.

"Not the Sony diehards that would buy a polished poo if it had the Sony logo on."

Is insulting the so called "diehards" a good way to gain credibility all of a sudden? Probably not. I can't believe this crap was in his opening paragraph. I'm surprised I didn't stop reading as soon as i read that.

"Shameful the way that beautiful little grey box was treated. And it died a death all because of Sony’s aggressive marketing campaign."

We all know the Dreamcast died and the PS2 didn't. Does this give you the right to blame Sony for so called "aggressive marketing"? Did this guy ever think that maybe Sega should have been as "aggressive"...

"Firstly, the 360 came out and is as close to perfect as you can get."

Blah blah blah...obviously this guy hasn't heard of the Xbox360 failure rate.

"Don’t get me wrong, I may be in the employ of Microsoft to write this column, but there is no way I’m taking dirty money."

Yeah...he should have kept his mouth shut and then I might think that he is just extremely misguided.

"I am allowed to say exactly what I want to about any console or game."

If he's going to keep getting hired and paid by Microsoft, then I'm sure he is.

"Oh no, I got mine free. And I have used it precisely once."

So using a console once can let you give a decent opinion of it? Biased, much...

"And what the sodding hell is Blu-ray all about? That’s not even how you spell blue. It should have an ‘e’ at the end, B-L-U-E! Not Blu. Pathetic."

There's something now wrong with a company trying to create a cool/trendy product name? Where the hell did "Xbox" come from?

"but are people really going to dump their old DVD players to watch something that is a) only slightly better quality and b) more expensive?"

I can't believe this guy is actually writing on a tech-based website. Everyone and their Dog knows that the difference between Blu-Ray/HD-DVD and standard DVD is huge. This guy must obviously be watching his HD media on a portable TV.

"I even got sent a free copy of Casino Royale when I registered my PS3 online, and I haven’t watched it out of protest."

Speaks for itself, really...

"I lost big time in the great Betamax/VHS wars of the early 80s...Oh the shame of going into the then new video libraries and having to shuffle into a corner to spend literally seconds browsing through the Beta titles that were half-filling one tiny shelf...And do you know what? It was Sony that got me a severe kicking on several occasions in school because I didn’t have VHS. For that reason, I shall certainly NOT be supporting another nancy boy, nonsense format that Sony have just made up in an attempt to look all clever and cool. No. Not again."

Haha, so this guy doesn't like Sony because he got made fun of in school? I think there is possibly other reasons why he got made fun of in school and it certainly isn't Sony.

"And don’t get me started on the online services. That’s a whole rant in itself. Suffice to say, one console offers a sublime, beautiful, wondrous, joyful online experience, while the other is guff. I’ll leave it to you to try and work out which is which."

Erm...did this guy not just say he has only used his PS3 once? So how the hell would he know?

"Look, I’m not saying I’m never going to play PS3 again, all I’m saying is it’s going to take something pretty special to get me to try and find the controllers and start up the thing. It will happen, I just don’t know when."

Good. I hope you never play it again. This will then save us all from having to play with such an idiotic person. Afterall, idiocy of this level is quite possibly contagious.

How To: Use PS3 Controller (Sixaxis) On A PC

How To: Use PS3 SixAxis On PC - Click here for funny video clips

You've probably heard or seen pictures of this before. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical about it as there wasn't really any solid evidence to suggest it was possible. But now it seems that there has been a video guide released on how to do it. I've not yet tried it myself personally, but if you follow the guide you will be using your SixAxis on a PC in a matter of minutes!

New Pay-To-Click Site Review - PayPal Payments - $5 Minimum Payout - Up To 7 Days For Payment

Just going to do a quick post now about the newest PTC site on the block. It is also now my favourite.

For those of you that do not know, pay to click sites are just basically a site where you can go to and click on ad's for around 20-30 seconds each day to earn money. Now, a lot of pay to click sites have long payment wait times (some going up to 90 days!) and often do not pay by PayPal.

This new site is like no other and offers not only payment to PayPal, but a maximum of 7 days for you to get it. I've been paid a few times by them and for me it has ranged from 3 minutes to around 24 hours. So yeah, they are pretty damn quick. The minimum payout is also only at $5 so you will be getting some pretty regular payments.

Good way to earn a bit of extra cash in my opinion.

Go check them out!

Metropolitan Police Careers Website Hacked

It seems those crazy hackers were at it again. I got on the internet this morning and browsed my usual forums and found that someone had found that the Met Police careers website had been hacked. It took them until 9am to eventually sort it out. Now if you go to the website it seems they have taken the whole thing down...good thing i got a screenshot 'eh.
