Default There is no "best"

Unless someone can prove me wrong, the top NES emulators are relatively equal.

FCE Ultra, upon ZD's recommendation. Anyone would be hard pressed to suggest a feature I need that it doesn't provide.

I always liked NESten myself but it's been years so there must be better ones out there by now. <img src=smilies/cwm11.gif>

For playing, I use Mednafen.

For testing assembly hacks and such, I use NEStopia (To see if it would run on real hardware).

I use BioNES. It works well, and I've never had any problems with it. When comparing different emulators on a chart (on the site I searched to find out what was available), it appeared to be the best-suited to my needs, and it's worked for me. <img src=smilies/2gunsfiring_v1.gif><img src=smilies/moon.gif><img src=smilies/thumb.gif>

Default Neon64

http://www.hcs64.com/neon64.html'cause I like to feel smart</a>

Truly though it is the only NES emulator I've used in a while, I like to play on a TV and the N64 is the only hardware I have that'll do that.<P ID="edit"><FONT class="small">Edited by hcs on 05/17/07 03:39 AM.</FONT></P>

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?
