I tried Nestopia but its a little poo. to be honest all the emulators I've tried for OS X have been sub-par. which is why i run emulators off my Xbox instead :)

Nestopia Help

Well when I click on the nestopia program nothing but a list of the things on my hard drive comes up and it asks me to choose what to open nestopia with. What is the next step to playing the games? When I had my PC i downloaded a emulator and it would open when clicked on, and from in the program window i could load the roms. Do i need to download the roms and click on them when it asks me what to open with nestopia? I am pretty confused on the steps needed to start playing the games.:( :confused: :mad:

I have searched, but I can't find any reliable places to download ROMs. Can anyone tell me a good place to acquire them? I am mostly just looking to play Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, and 3.

EDIT: Post 1000!!!

Asking for roms is usually not allowed on forums and generally illegal in general unless you actually own the carts themselves. In which that case you should dump the rom on your own.

However, in your situation I would say you best bet is to just keep googling for them. Or use a P2P setup.

I was told Xbox didn't run most emulators at 100%. Is this true? Because I purposely did not buy one all this time because people have told me SNES and Mega Drive games don't run at full speed.

I used to use my mac for all my emulation. But now I just use it for NES, SNES and Sega stuff I want to play. It's true the macs have fallen far behind to PC's when it comes to emulation.

Which is why I own a PC, mainly to power my MAME arcade cabinet.
