I've tried saving games ,but it never worked. I done a lot of researching, but everything says type a command in WinSCP.
The problem is I don't have WinSCP. I just downloaded the games straight from Cydia.

It's saves Genesis game fine, just not NES games.

Anyone know how to fix it?

(I need my Zelda!)

How did you get ANY of zodttd's emulators to save? I have Autosave enable but it never saves...or maybe I just haven't been playing a game long enough?

I don't really know. I just d/l it and played. It'll save my Genesis game, but not Nintendo.

Also when it saves Genesis it just keeps adding a new saved game to the save folder so I've got a lot...

Yes you have to enter a command on winscp for it to work. Maybe there are other ssh programs that let you enter commands but winscp is the only one i am familiar with. With winscp just click "Open Terminal." Then type:

"chown -hR mobile /var/mobile" but without the quotes.

Then click "Execute"

That is for iPhone 3g. I think the first gen iPhone might be different. So if that doesn't work people say "chown -hR mobile /var/root" is the right command for the first gen iPhone but I haven't tried it. These commands also work with other emulators by zod.

Dang. So I'll have to setup the WinSCS thingy or SSH or whatever it's called.
I was hoping there was something I could do in my phone without doing that.

I have an iPhone 3G btw

That just hangs forever and does nothing.

My only problem is that it asks for some wifi IP address...I don't have wifi.
I'll have to play around with it tonight some.

I had this same exact problem...yeah you can mess with the ownership stuff, but I just re-installed the NES emulator. Let me know if that works for you. I love it now!
