Emulator Release: FakeNES GT released


Rookie Developer >_> <_<

FakeNES is a highly portable, Open Source NES and Famicom emulator.

It runs on all modern operating systems (such as Windows, Linux, and Mac) and has an actively maintained DOS port for enthusiasts. Support for phones and other mobile platforms is under development.

Originally created in 2001 by a rag-tag team of developers from projects such as ZSNES, after ten years of sporadic development it has been forked by Digital Carat Group and almost completely rewritten. It has also been renamed to FakeNES GT, meaning "Good Times", to distinguish it from the original project.

Estimated release date: July of 2011 or later

This quarter:
* Finish code overhaul, get the entire project building again sans warnings
* Finish work on the new CPU core
* Overhaul the mapper architechture, and add support for FCE Ultra mappers
* Re-implement emulation features that were removed, such as MMC5 ExRAM, and mapper hacks
* Finish the new video subsystem, particulary the OpenGL engine
* Implement a new GUI, in both software and OpenGL compositing versions
* Better multi-language support using TrueType fonts
* Implement *working* support for network play (NetPlay) over LAN and Internet
* At least several weeks of additional cleanups and bug fixing

Next quarter:
* Write an official, updated FAQ page for the website
* Start work on an official Handbook to be distributed with the emulator
Game support:
* Improve emulation accuracy and compatibility
* Individually test problematic games and resolve any issues
* Better support for the Famicom, Playchoice 10, and VS UniSystem
* Overhaul long-neglected parts of the source code
* Remove the need for Allegro by writing our own abstraction library
* Add support for mobile platforms, especially iPhone

Ongoing efforts:
* Better support for low resolutions (320x240 and under)
* Support slower computers using performance profiles for emulation
