Nester

The last version is quite old. Is this emulator discontinued? :?
I'd like to see at last a bug-fix version. Oh yes, and what about Gnuboy? It's from the same author, maybe he has left the scene.

NesterDC 7 wasn't released that long ago - only a few months, if I remember correctly. And there was a release of Gnuboy a bit before that too. I don't think he's left, but he has a tendancy to work quietly on something for quite a while and, just when everyone's forgotten him, pop up again with a new version of something. Or, in one case, a totally new emulator.

Well I don't think NesterDC has bugs? Maybe some small bugs there and there but it doesn't matter or?

Gnuboy is in very good shape actually (ok ok it has a little rom loading bug)

Both of them are getting so close to perfect that any changes would hardly be noticable, and would probably be more trouble to fix than it's worth. And messing with near-perfect code can often break it quite badly.

They are both near perfect but there are some problems with certain games like
Final Fantasy 2. One Cool Idea would be to combine the two emulators into one program.

zelda runs perfectly in 7.1 maybe you have a bad rom or something.

Zelda, 1 2 and a whole bunch of Zelda 1 hacks all run fine on 7.1 for me.

My problem is all the Koei games stopped working. They're all mapper 5, and they work fine on the last 2 version I have burned. Bandit Kings of Anceint China never worked (at least not on the dc port), but now they're all gone.
