I'm assuming that it's against forum rules to tell people where/how to pirate free software off the internet, so I'll just say that I've heard the nes roms are not hard to find if you look in the normal places where people pirate software from. They are often found in large packs with hundreds or thousands of games downloadable at once!

    This is an awesome potential, but as I stated above, the sound doesn't seem to work properly yet, and it is a bit stuttery. Since the iPhone has something like twice the processing power of my old Tmobile Dash, which ran NES perfectly, I am assuming these problems will be overcome soon!
    I've also been experiencing bad sound, but also incompatibilities with some ROMs. Crystalis doesn't render correctly at all and Final Fantasy 1 also has issues.

    Is there anyone who can report that the NES emulator actually works for them? For me it is basically unplayable. I am just trying to figure out if this is bad luck on my part, some program resource conflict, or if it is the same way for everyone. I really want it to work!

    Yep it works. It's a bit tough to get use to the controls because you can't feel them but you can fix that with some clear plastic. Some games have issues but they are being corrected as time goes by.

    I am using the 1.6.2

    What? I'm still using version 1.4.0!!! Why didn't I automatically get the update?

    Do you think I should delete it and re-download it or something?

    They haven't been updated to installer.app for a bit. You will need to do a manual install.

    You can just overwrite the app in your applications dir. You will get a "couldn't create the folder" error but that is because the folder is already there.

    I couldn't install the 1.7.1 through iBrickr because the file format of the download wasnt pxl, so I installed 1.6.2 through iBrickr's installer, thinking it would still be an improvement. It seems to work better, but overall not very well. The sound is still very choppy, and overall the gameplay is like in slow motion.

    Which games have you found that actually work perfectly?

    Pacman, 1942, 1943, Contra, Metroid, Arkanoid, Defender, Castlevania, Galaxian, Galaga, and of course Mario Bro.

    The biggest issue for me is the controls, I need some tactile response.

    I will give 1.7.1 a go and see what happens.

    *edit*

    1.7.1 didn't fix my 1942 sound issues but it runs just as well. Maybe the new 339 cpu setting will help.

    What's the 339 cpu setting do exactly? It seemed like it made it run smoother, but slower --but I think that I may be going insane and making that up as well..

    All I know is that if my Tmobile Dash could play these games well, my iPhone should be able to as well!

    Is it possible that the iPhone actually has less graphical power, since it wasn't designed to run windows and have 3rd party apps installed? Maybe they figured that the iPhone wouldn't need any flexible graphics processing power, since it has a dedicated chip (or so I thought I heard somewhere) for mp4 video?

    Works on 1.7.1 and actually has worked well on all the versions. Maybe its just a corrupt install. I checked the settings as well and works in full screen mode as well as normal.

    Sorry mate, maybe re-install it.
