Psx4all - Downloading roms within the app?

Hi Guys,

I've just downloaded psx4all from Cydia, and have managed to put a single (albeit crappy) psx game on there, via SSH'ing & using Cyberduck.

I've noticed that you can download roms from within the app itself, which defaults to using emuparadise.org...

I've found the app I want, I've clicked download, it asks me if I'm sure, click yes, download prompt comes up and says 'this prompt will disappear when d/l has finished'... disappears, then..... no rom shows in my rom list!

I've tried re-springing etc etc, but I cannot get it to work!

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know for sure as I don't have the App to try out but have you considered it doesn't put it straight into the ROMs folder?

Definitely considered it, but wanted to know if anyone actually knew for sure, as I don't have access to my laptop for a while to do another SSH/Cyberduck session...!

I don't have an answer to your question, unfortunately, but have you tried poking around with iFile? It'll let you explore the files on your iPhone directly without using SSH, and maybe you could figure out where your ROMs are disappearing to. Not as efficient as using a computer, but if you're impatient, better than nothing.

On a related note: dumping big ROMs via SSH takes forever. I use iPhone Explorer to transfer the files over USB (much faster), and then use either iFile or SSH just to change the permissions (since iPhone Explorer sadly doesn't support that, as far as I can tell).
