Location of Games?

Some of the games get installed directly among the Applications, while others can be seen among Application Manager. Such games create icons on the main menu only from where these can be sent to the Game folder. My question is : How do we get an icon (or shortcut) of the games (installed as Applications) in the Games folder or in the main menu screen. I have tried Fexplorer to copy and paste the program from midp to apps, but that did not seem to work.

I had broadly realised that difference but is there a way of achieving what I am trying to do? I know the basic diference that is probably resulting in different locations. One set comes from .jar files and the other one from .sis files.

Even if the icon location cannot be changed, can I compress java games using Stacker?

A common problem with no remedy unfortunately :(

I've seen this question crop up frequently over at Forum Nokia, and nobody (to my knowledge) has been able to come up with a solution unfortunately :(.

The "mobile Java" applications (.jar/.jad) install in the special "Apps" folder (and cannot be moved). As far as I'm aware, this will change in future phones like the Nokia 6600 which will be based on a newer Symbian OS (7.0s instead of the current 6.1), newer Series 60 release and newer Java (MIDP 2.0 instead of the current MIDP 1.0).


games, location
