NesterDC emulates the NES and Famicom. After Ken Friece left the project in late 2001, Takayama Fumihiko took over and implemented save states, game genie codes and better compatibility over the span of the 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 releases. The emulator now features excellent speed and sound emulation and is most notable as being the best [NES] emulator for the Dreamcast.

Early 2003, Warmtoe released a modified NesterDC 7.1 simply called NesterDC 7.1+ which added support for Dreamcast lightguns.

Scherzo updated NesterDC 7.1 and released NesterDC SE in late 2005 but has been criticized because of it's lack of directory listing for ROMs that are not in SE's master list, which are mostly game hacks and translations. The update also introduced a polish menu and perfect speed albeit one or two odd ROMs.
