What do I need to do to get the Games menu option to work?

I've got an N64 emulator on my machine but clicking on Games just gives me a blank screen with no option to configure the emulator and rom location.

Do I need a particular add-on enabled/configured first?

Thanks.

Butcha, forgot to thank you for this!

Works a charm.

Now I just need to find away of stopping XBMC turning off my screen when I'm running an emulator!

The problem is after, say 15 mins of playing a game, the monitor switches off.

I'm not sure this is an XBMC thing rather than a Linux thing - I suspect it doesn't register the controller as "activity" which keeps the monitor awake.
