I can't find any that works with Dolphin, I tried to just rename a game to .gcm, it crashed the emu. I really think there should be a ROMs forum in the download section here at EmuTalk.net.

Which game did you try to run. It may be one that will crash the emu....

If you try to play with homebrew game then that's normal u have some difficulties.
Let your homebrew game with the extension .dol (this extension is for analogy with Win/Pc like .exe files) then go to menu file =>Open.Then you can open either gcm but also dol,elf or bin...
The list you have in the main windows is only for Gcm files (Which is by analogy like .iso ) (they display the banner , the title, sometimes how it works...)

Please notice one thing:
executable file : .dol <> .exe
file ready to burn : .gcm<> .iso
<> (not egal), they do the same things but there are not coded the same way.

And surelly : .dol<>.gcm

For some homebrew game, you will need to use the backbuffer (green icon)

thanks a bunch for the info, much appriciated

but for the other thing, a download section with Public Domain ROMs, wouldn't it be fitting?
