Serious question for you: What are the specs of your computer? Almost every semi-modern (2003+) machine I've run BioNES on renders palette entry #$00 (Dark Grey) as black.

Wrong. I've done several assembly hacks that worked just fine and dandy under FCEU, but would make NEStopia and Nintendulator shit themselves (Which means there's a 99% chance a real NES would crash as well). If all you do is play Mario ROMs or something, then yeah, shoddily accurate emus may be fine for you, but for somebody who does advanced ROM hacks, they don't really cut it.

Unfortunately, FCEUXD is the best debugging emu at the moment, so I have to do actual work in it, then test it on a better emulator.

Also note, that Mednafen is the continuation of FCEU (Same author), and has had many improvements to the core NES programming. It also has the NTSC filter, Reaper man. ;)

You are aware that this site hasn't been updated since the crucifixion of Christ, right? And that the only real reason it even still exists is to give Swampgas ad revenue?
<P ID="signature"></P>

shawn 05-20-2007 01:37 PM

Re: There is no "best"
 
That is your opinion on the ad revenue. I myself believe Sam is friends with many of the regulars here, and is compassionate. When there was an outcry for the site to stay up he gave in. He doesn't really have time to do anything because he has a real life and the staff just stopped updating but they are not paid either so it's not like they have to update. I would like to see new blood that would like to update but most just do it for a while and stop and that's an ongoing thing.

As for the revenue, he has to pay for bandwidth and other things and that is not cheap at all. He did other things for the staff here that I will not mention as a gift and took a lot of time doing it to and did not make a cent and if he added his time up he lost money. You should not say that he's only keeping it up for the money unless you heard it right from his lips since opinions and rumors are just guesses.

I'm not mad but that kind of hurt seeing that you are on his forum and it is his downing him like that. If it wasn't for this forum I don't know if I would be alive or the person I am since I came here after my mom died and my heart was gone and I had no self esteem either. The people here made me feel like a real person and if it wasn't for Sam taking over the site and keeping it up for those years I can't see my life being as good as it is because this forum was a key point in my life for almost 2 years and people like Ian, John, Roger, and many many others made me realize that I was a decent person and life may be worth living and not just a living hell. I remember when people here demanded you be booted because of the size of your sig images when you first arrived though I myself liked them very much. I remember PMing with you and just talking and explaining bandwidth and stuff and how some people did not have a fast connection. You listened and have been here for a very long time now. I really like you coming here to, your a decent person with a real gift for artistic expression and highly intelligent also. You are now also well liked and respected here and you know that is a good feeling. Now think if you took all that time programming, fighting with staff to get off thier asses to update the site the said they wanted to do and just fix shit hackers did, putting up with trolls, letters from nintendo lawyers, and just uncounted hrs of work to keep this site up. How would you feel after all that if someone said you *only* did it for the ad revenue. I think you'd feel like someone stabbed you in the heart. Sam does have feelings to and we should respect them and not act like he's just some corporate fatcat that'll fuck his sister for a dollar.

That did not need to be said, if that's what you think fine but you didn't have to put it in a post.

hmm, OK and what advantages, emulation wise, would it have over Nestopia?

Also, does it write to the SRAM file in real time, so that if the program/my PC crashes I don't lose any save data? I hate emulators that only write save data when it closes... <img src=smilies/banghead.gif>

As for the revenue, he has to pay for bandwidth and other things and that is not cheap at all.

I paid for/adminstered a site of my own for over three years. If the bandwidth and disk quota usage on the only front page post are true, a burger flipper could afford to run this site out of pocket and not flinch.

(Good) hosting is ass cheap these days; this isn't the mid 90's anymore.

If it wasn't for this forum I don't know if I would be alive or the person I am since I came here after my mom died and my heart was gone and I had no self esteem either.

I'm not downing the boards, but I am downing the fact that what was once THE hub of the emulation community has turned into a shell of what it used to be. I've come here since 1996, and it's sad to see what's become of it, despite many people wanting to help bring it back to its former glory.

I remember when people here demanded you be booted because of the size of your sig images when you first arrived though I myself liked them very much. I remember PMing with you and just talking and explaining bandwidth and stuff and how some people did not have a fast connection.

Wait, what? As far as I can remember, I've never used an image in my signature. And considering the field I'm in, I hardly think I would need an explanation of network connections.

You listened and have been here for a very long time now.

I've been here (The message boards) since ZD absorbed Demi's ROM Hack Board... 1997/98?

That did not need to be said, if that's what you think fine but you didn't have to put it in a post.

Consider it the frustrated words of somebody who actually does care about this site. It's like watching a loved one waste away from some shitty disease, only this is actually fixable.

Re: There is no "best"
 
I find it funny that people are bitching about ZMD, but when they're asked to do some work, they say they don't have the time. It's the same thing for the staff, they grew older, changed priorities, etc. They're not at school anymore, they have a full time job, wife, kids, etc. It had to happen. If you really think you can help, ask to be a staff member and do some work then.

On the topic, I love Nestopia, myself. Works fabulously, although I am a bit disappointed with a lack of a rewind feature (not sure what other emulators would have it, though, and not all excellent ones need to). Frankly, though, the emulation in Nestopia works so well that I could care less!

you obviously don't have the <a href=http://nestopia.sourceforge.net/downloads.html>latest</a> version, which supports rewinding (must be enabled/configured in options --> timing) and is activated by pressing backspace (can be changed to another key by going to options --> input --> Emulation)

Really? Sweet! I didn't even think my version of it was old enough that it could be behind in the first place, sure shows me. I'll go nab it first thing in the morning (it's 3 AM, I shouldn't even be up at this point).

As for the fellatio, well... that will have to wait until at the very... very... ... very least... the morning, as well. =P All the same, thanks a lot for the info!

That is a NES emulator, but RockNES X was last updated in 2002, making it one of the historic artefacts of emulation history. Ever thought about giving something like http://nestopia.sourceforge.net/Nestopia</a> or http://sourceforge.net/projects/mednafen/Mednafen</a> a try?

Re: So, which NES emulator(s) do you all use ?
 
I use a bunch of different emulators for various reasons.

Nesticle for the pattern table view and editing, ram dumping, NMI tracer and log dump.

Nesten for palette viewing, cheat search, code debugger, PPU dumping, RAM dumping.

Nestopia for accuracy in testing ASM hacks and the like.

FCEUD for the awesome debugger and the many features it has.

FCEU for the debuggerr, specific range memory dumper.

Nintendulator for it's accuracy. Trace code dumper and viewers.

Unofficial Nintendulator for additional debugging features.

FCEUDSP NSF version allowing you to debug NSF's without having the header set with bankswitch settings.

NesterJ for the additional expansion devices that you can use.

Nester for being a light weight and quick emulator that will work on slower systems. Has proved very useful for that reason alone.

FCEUMOD - will support newer dumps. Especially some Sachen games.

etc, for various support reasons.

I'm using NNNesterJ because it's the only one that can actually run the Goonies without problems. Goonies 1 that is, not Goonies 2.

Other than that I use JNES because it has high compatibility, and runs just about everything real fine.

Using VirtuaNES for Famicom emulation.

whyyyyy, why must you people use such outdated emulators?

I mean Nestopia, Nintendulator, and (from what I've heard) mednafen all work a lot better.

Hey, if you can find me a NES emulator that runs a bad dump of the Goonies without any problems then I'll use that from now on. Besides that, I've been using those emulators for years, I like them. Why would I change that just because it's outdated?? It does the job and I'm happy with it. I have no need for other emulators.

Here's something that happens with most emulators.

"Bases Loaded (U)

US Mode > letter J
game becomes unresponsive

This also happens on FCEUltra, Nestopia, and NNNesterJ."

Here's something that happens with just Jnes:

Start Chessmaster and choose a piece to move or press Select to pause.

Jnes supports up to mapper 113. (Nestopia documentation lists all 255 mappers.)

you mean VS mode? Uhm yeah of course it's not going to be responsive, the 2nd player needs to input his team. I tested it out with "Based Loaded (U) (PRG1) [!].nes" on Nestopia Ver. 1.40 and everything seemed to work as it was supposed to

did it ever occur to you that it runs your bad dump because the emulator itself is flawed, and why would you want to run a bad dump anyway?

ok, and a lot of us started on NESticle and at the time, we liked them. What a lot of us realized though was that new and better emulators came out and we moved on, which is what you should do.

"I tested it out with "Based Loaded (U) (PRG1) [!].nes" on Nestopia Ver. 1.40 and everything seemed to work as it was supposed to"

I guess it's system dependent then since by unresponsive I meant hung with the audio frozen. (I doubt that happened on the real hardware.)

Exactly. Emulation isn't really ever going to be the real deal, thus the concept of "emulating" the hardware. Good point, Iconoclast.

Nintendulator ... is what I'd like to say, but I don't have a 6GHz system. I use Mednafen.

or perhaps

A. you are using a bad rom.
B. you are using an outdated version of Nestopia

Soushkin 07-11-2008 05:41 PM

Look, I'm not going to defend my choice of emulators. If you don't like it, that's your problem. I'm using what I want to use and I don't care about what you say I should use.

I'm using outdated emulators and I'm happy with it. Got a problem with that??

Antwan1500 07-11-2008 06:16 PM

i used to use Jnes because of its simplicity but i moved up to Nestopia.

Iconoclast 07-11-2008 06:38 PM

"A. you are using a bad rom."
Three people tested what they called a good dump.

"B. you are using an outdated version of Nestopia"
I tested it on the latest versions of Jnes and like I said FCEUltra, Nestopia, and NNNester J.

Rattlehead 07-11-2008 10:29 PM

Go figure. Someone asks a question in a forum and next thing you know the beginnings of an argument start to rear their ugly heads. Good job, guys.

Sounds like someone is conceding to me.

Honestly I think your decision is stubborn and rather stupid, but whatever. Enjoy your inaccurate emulator.

I just now tested all 3 versions of Bases loaded on Nestopia, NNNesterJ(might not be latest) and FCEU. All of them work fine. I seriously bet that your ROM is bad, regardless of what your friends claim.

Exactly. Though, I'm not at all surprised by the conversation (I call it an argument) that's developed.

Obviously this thread is discussion for what emulators we actually do use and not what we should use. You can say gaming is a religion, but disrespecting others because of emulator preferences is more like a malformed reproduction technology cult. This sort of behavior should be moderated.

I have read so many arguments on the best Nintendo 64 emulator or emulator plugin, and about 40 percent of them all involve people who turn projects into superior religious cults instead of equally respectable works like all of the other projects.

"I just now tested all 3 versions of Bases loaded on Nestopia, NNNesterJ(might not be latest) and FCEU. All of them work fine. I seriously bet that your ROM is bad, regardless of what your friends claim."

You're right. The file I downloaded was marked as a good dump, but I see particular sites mark that label wrong.

Well since in this situation my problem is related to you, I think it goes without saying that I would bother you with it. Too bad.

How was anything I said pointless? Actually I made quite a few decent valid points that you just can't argue back.

He doesn't have to back that claim up when the obvious is presented. There's only one person escalating the drama. Dial up Sherlock Holmes and find out who!


Anyway:

LoopyNes.

OH NO THATS NOT ACCURATE well i'm using a 486 so eat it

*yawn* that question in a way was rhetorical, since I wasn't doing anything childish to begin with. The most I've even done was state that he was being stupid in sticking with that emulator to run a BAD dump for fuck sake, and guess what, it IS a stupid reason to be running an outdated emulator, especially when he could easily find a good, clean dump in a matter of minutes. He's so damn closed minded about the whole thing, if you would fuck it, it would bleed.

At least your reason is valid. Why you would be using a 486 is beyond me though. >.>

Soushkin 07-12-2008 09:44 AM

I can use what I want, the way I want, when I want. That's called freedom, maybe you don't have that in your country.

In case you try to reply, don't bother. You've been added to the ignore list, people who got nothing useful to say go right there. Have a nice day.

Gil-Galad 07-12-2008 11:42 AM

I still use Nesticle upon occassion, if you guys want to know. I don't stick to any one emulator. Compatibility is different between emulators, while some run a lot more games, even some of the more compatible emulators don't run a few games right. Emulation will probably never be perfect.

I'm a ROM hacker, so I use any emulator that has some type of tool. Also, I would use a particular emulator to run on low end machines. For example, Nester (Not the NN or J versions), because it's light weight and runs fast. When I don't want to take up the entire screen, such as Nesticle for example.

I probably use Nestopia least of all. I also use Nintendulator to test code as Nintendulator I think is more accurate as many of the information gathered was from actual hardware. Quietust and Kevin Horton would work for hours testing various things. Nestopia offers better compatibility because of the mappers it supports and the emulator is accurate in most areas as well. I think that there is a difference between accuracy and compatibility.

So I would use the following, for the following reasons.

Nesticle - Pattern table editor, some other viewers, NMI tracer and register dumper, memory dumper. GG support (cheating is a ROM hackers friend)

Nesten - Debugger, palette console, memory dumping, PPU dumping, cheating.

Nintendulator - Code accuracy, program flow logging, memory dumping, VRAM viewing. NSF player with error messages for NSFs with problems.

Nester NN and J versions - For support with devices.

VirtuaNES - Has a cool NSF player with a keyboard that plays as the NSF plays. This can help with picking out notes. VirtuaNES has also been updated quite a bit lately for the ton of dumps that's been coming out lately.

FCEU MOD - Debugger with a lot of functions, memory viewer, memory dumping, support for many mappers for new dumps.

FCEUXD(and others in this line) - Debugger, Hex editor, data logger, VRAM viewer, etc. Really is a great debugging tool. FCEUD was the original debugger by Parasyte.

Nester - Great for running on a lot of low end systems and it's fast. Doesn't support too many mappers though.

Unofficial Nintendulator - In addition to what is already supported, a debugger with a lot of functions. Some functions that the others do not have.

Nestopia - Supports a lot of mappers and many games without too many problems. Great compatibility.

There are more, just can't think of them at the moment. My main point is to not stick to any one single emulator. I don't.

I like Vortendo because its name is funny.

There's people starving to death, mass genocide, and theocracy that steps all over basic human rights.

And you're fighting about Nintendo emulators.

...WTF, mate?

roxahris 07-13-2008 07:14 AM

On the topic's subject, I generally use NNNesterJ, and occasionally FCEU (the movie version).
