Drastic unable to find roms

Post by Firestorm2408 » Sat Oct 17, 2015 12:22 pm

Hi folks,

So I've used drastic before when I bought it for my nvidia shield tablet but when I try and use it on my oneplus one running CM12.1 it can't seem to find any roms I download onto it (I've also tried manually downloading them on my pc and putting them on here via USB cable)

Even when I manually try to look in the folder via drastics it shows nothing in the folder.


Any idea what could be causing drastic to be unable to see the roms?

r 2.4.0.1a appears on the bottom right of my drastic main menu. I assume that's the version?

Yup.
Just checking, because a version number that does not match the current release is usually a telltale sign of piracy. Not saying you did that, but you never know.

What file extension do your roms have? They should be ".nds". If they're compressed, try extraxting them from the archive. DraStic should be able to see compressed roms, but just in case try them uncompressed.
This is my signature. I hope you enjoyed wasting your time reading this pointless message :P
