Thanks so much for your reply. It won’t let me create a new file. What command should i be using for this? Also, if i call the ‘cat’ command on.vice, nothing happens. Whereas if i call it on.scummvm, it says it is a directory. I’m baffled here. I’ve included a screenshot that i hope posts, to show how all the other emulators listed, have pointers to the real directories, but.vice doesn’t. Is this the issue? I can’t think what i could be doing wrong… thanks again for helping out.
