Can't open games from file explorer and no games show up

Post by nolsha » Tue Jul 06, 2021 10:05 am

Galaxy S20 Ultra. I allowed the app access to my files, and have tried navigating to a game file outside the app and selecting 'Open with' and DraStic is not an option. Attached is a screenshot of what I get when I try to 'load new game'--tapping the folder icon doesn't navigate anywhere else. And yes I paid for the app and have the legit version. Is there a setting somewhere to change the default directory to look in for games? Thanks in advance!

Hi There.

Its unfortunately a long time unfixed issue with how the app handles Android 11 & 12 for storage. You can try making a folder named "NDS" inside the "Drastic" folder that should already be in your phone storage and putting your ROMs there to see if it works (You may need to reinstall Drastic).

If it doesn't work I am afraid you will likely need to request a refund to Google (You can search how online) and use another emulator such as MelonDS for Android.
