Frequently Asked Questions
1: I downloaded a game but it won't work right. What's wrong?
A: Emulators aren't perfect and never will be. If a game won't work with your favorite emulator try another from the Emulation Lair. Some emulators also have compatibility wikis which may offer game specific settings to try.
: I downloaded a game but I get an error when I try to unzip it. What's wrong?
: The file may not have downloaded 100%. Compare your file size with the size shown in The Vault and if they don't match, try downloading it again.
If the file has a ".7z" extension, please install 7-Zip
to open it.
3: How do I enter Game Genie codes?
A: Most emulators in the Emulation Lair support the Game Genie and other cheating devices. All emulators work differently, so check the emulator's documentation for how to enter cheat codes.
: Why don't you add codes and walkthroughs?
: There are other sites which already do this very well. Try GameFAQs
for all your code and walkthrough needs.
5: If a rooster stands on the tip of a roof and lays an egg, which side will it roll down?
A: Neither. Roosters don't lay eggs.
6: When will you add more systems to The Vault?
A: Vimm's Lair will never carry ROMs or ISOs for any system still in production. Please show your support for the games you love and purchase them from a store near you. Systems must be at least two generations old to be considered for The Vault, and new Vaults will not be announced in advance.
