Now with Ndless file association support. Make sure to get the latest revisi on of Ndless! 2) Installation First, install Ndless so you can run third party programs. Ndless can be fou nd here: http://www.unsads.com/projects/nsptools/downloader/download/release/1 Next, create a new folder on the device to hold the emulator and ROMs. Then, send gbc4nspire.tns to your calculator using your TI-Nspire linking so ftware. Try running it from the Documents menu. It should say that it cannot find an y ROM files. Press ESC to exit. To install Ndless file associations for gbc4nspire (Ndless r530 and up), edi t ndless.cfg.tns using a text editor such as Notepad. ndless.cfg.tns can be found in the same folder as ndless_resources.tns and t he Ndless installers. Define the .gb.tns and .gbc.tns extensions by adding the following lines (or editing if they already exist): ext.gb=gbc4nspire ext.gbc=gbc4nspire If you renamed the emulator to something other than gbc4nspire.tns, use that name instead. Note: Some newer revisions of Ndless may already have those lines for you, s o you can just send ndless.cfg.tns to the ndless folder as it is. 3) Sending ROM files Take a gameboy ROM file and add a .tns extension. If you start with "rom.gb" , you should end up with "rom.gb.tns". Please keep the filename less than 40 characters so the filename will fit on the TI-Nspire screen. Note: If you are using Windows, you may need to change your folder settings if you cannot see file extensions. Then, use your TI-Nspire linking software to send the ".gb.tns" or ".gbc.tns " file to your device, in the same folder as the emulator. You can currently only have 14 ROMs at a time due to the menu size. However, you can bypass this limit by creating another emulator folder. Or, if you are using the Ndless file association feature (Ndless r530 and up ), you can open any ROM directly from the Documents menu. See Installation. 4) Running ROM files There are now two methods of running ROM files. 1) Run the emulator. A menu should come up where you can select a ROM to run from that folder. Select a ROM and press ENTER or Click. 2) If using the Ndless file association feature (Ndless r530 and up), you ca n open any ROM from any folder directly from the Documents menu. See Installatio n.
