@tornado99 - I have my RPCEmu folder in $HOME e.g. ~/RPCEmu/371 , ~/RPCEmu/402 with normal permissions and have no problem. Are you running from $HOME?

Edit: I should clarify - it works as installed for me but I copied everything to $HOME so that I could install multiple versions (roms) next to each other, as this is easier to manage. I haven't used it for a while either so I'm a bit rusty! Can you post the permissions? ls -la /usr/share/rpcemu

I added a ROM and put myself in the group users, but I still get this error: RPCEmu fatal error: Cannot create file './hd4.hdf': Permission denied. how can i fix this?

It would appear that it will only run if the rpcemu executable is either placed in /usr/share/rpcemu and run from there, i.e. everything in the same directory, or if /usr/bin/rpcemu is a symlink to /usr/share/rpcemu/rpcemu. It will not work if /usr/share/rpcemu/rpcemu is a symlink to /usr/bin/rpcemu.

Hi... is this working for you? No matter what I try I cannot get past the error - "RPCEmu fatal error: Could not load ROM files from directory 'roms'" I've followed the instructions from the RPCEmu site and other sites but I'm stumped. Any advice please?
