Delta emulator NES games not working Fix

There are 2 methods to get NES games to work on Delta emulator. Use the alternative method only if the easiest method somehow doesn’t work for you.


Method 1: Easiest method

This is the easiest method to get NES games to run on Delta emulator.

1) Open Delta Emulator.

2) Go to NES tab

3) Tap and hold on NES game title that you want to play until sub menu appearing on screen. At the same time, the game is launch on the top screen.

4) Tap on the top screen to start playing NES game.


Method 2: Alternative method

Use this method, in case the first method didn’t work for you. The second method requires you to have other console game and have their save state (E.g: you have GBA Metroid Fusion game with save state).

1) Open Delta Emulator from fresh. If you have opened it before and tried opening NES, kill it off and re-open Delta Emulator.

2) Go to the other console tab (E.g.: GBA).

3) Run the game.

4) Tap the Menu > Load State. Choose the available save state to load the game.

5) Once game is loaded, play for 3-5 seconds.

6) Tap the Menu > Main Menu.

7) Go to NES tab.

8) Tap on the NES game title you want to play. The NES game now should play perfectly on Delta Emulator.
