Mods/hacks on Android

Postby kiwi1202935 » Sun Dec 17 2017 4:02am

Anyone know how to get them to work on android? Really want to give "Battle Royale" another shot... My laptop crashed out on me a while back over a year ago and havn't played it since then. Would also like to try out "Return to Granseal aswell".

Yeah, it's actually pretty straightforward.

1) - You download an emulator app from the Play Store. I used to have the android version of Gens, but I just saw that it no longer seems to be available. You could go with GENPlusDroid oder AndroGens, but I just tested them both and the sound seems to be crackling with those. Back then I also had RetroArch in use, which didn't have this problem, but RetroArch is a multi-platform emulator and its setup is somewhat more complex (you have to download some other stuff to get it to work).

2) - You download the ROM to your phone. I usually create a new folder in the root directory for this. Most emulators seem to work fine with .bin files, although for some you have to create a .zip out of the .bin for whatever reason.

3) - You open the app and locate the ROM, and you're good to go.

Hope this helps!

Cool, thanks man... I'll give it a try.
I got retro arch, so I'll see if it works on that

Edit: I patched the game but it didn't boot up... The regular game runs fine, but not the patch

hm... sounds like it might be an issue with an incompatible ROM? Anyway, I'm sending you a PM.
