UAE4droid awesome games - and question

Hi all, I've been dragged into buying a new phone (bah, humbug) and cheered up a bit when I found I could install UAE4droid on this here San Francisco (Blade) II. I'm very new to this but can I humbly recommend Paradroid '90 as a great game for this platform. It looks, sounds and plays beautifully - well, with my big fingers and failing eyesight, I don't play it very well - but you know what I mean. While I'd love to play games like Virus, Carrier Command or Dungeon Master, I'm not sure how well they would work out. I'd be very interested to hear any recommendations. One issue I've hit is initially I put a couple of rom files on my SD card, called, Kickrom and Kickrom1.3. I then searched through my archives and found some later roms for A500 and A600 but these don't appear in the settings so I can't load them and try them out with the adfs, any idea how to fix that? Cheers.

I think all kickstart roms must be 512KB in size, 256KB versions do not work.

Thanks, but its not that - the additional kickroms I installed were pretty much all 512k, but its just those first 2 that show up and not the later ones. :-/

In WinUAE paths->rescan roms, maybe UAE4Droid have this option also.

It always shows .rom files on mine even if they dont work.
However I have had all the ones I wanted work fine without issue.

It was just me being Angus.NOB - I hadn't renamed the files to end with .ROM -sorry. It turns out though that my A600.rom formerly known as Kick40063.A600 doesn't work. I've tried booting it with no floppies, but it doesn't even give the Miggy boot screen - any pointers?

Stunt car racer works pretty good. Tried out wings too. Its ok too. Here is a video of it running, pretty smooth. I think joystick based games is the way to go.
