Why is my game Loading Slowly?

Emulator Online loads specific game ROMs when you start the game by clicking into the emulator screen. For most Retro Games, these ROM files are quite small in size and only take a few seconds to load on a decent internet connection. Sometimes, however, the ROM Emulator file may be larger and could take longer to load with bigger game sizes. We have already taken the steps to optimize delivery of the game files and make the loading as quick as possible. Even larger games should load in a few seconds to under a minute. So in most circumstances, if you are experiencing an issue with the game loading slowly, it might be a problem with your internet connection.
