Jnes 1.2 released for Windows!

posted by Jabo Jnes Comments20
Merry Christmas everyone!
It's been a year since I've posted here, but even longer since a release for Jnes for Windows, over three years in fact. Since the last Windows release there were pretty big changes under the hood to get Jnes to work on Android, and in the background I have been trying to also improve the accuracy of the emulator. While Jnes has a proud tradition of playing most games, there are some subtle hardware behaviors that Jnes was not able to emulate correctly. I've made some progress on improving that in this release, you are unlikely to notice it unless it breaks something. Cheats also got reworked significantly, editing should be stable. There are a slew of new awesome cheat codes from Gent, please give him some thanks for all his hard work in helping put this release together.

Lastly this update brings a much needed upgrade to DirectX 9.0, which should modernize Jnes on newer versions of Windows, as well as a native 64-bit version which is just nice to have. It was discovered during testing that this version may not work on Windows XP any longer, and I'm not sure why. I decided to move ahead with the release rather than delay it.

My hope is that this release brings some joy to the world, for those of you who have been anticipating a new release for a while please accept this gift with warmest regards, I hope it has something you were looking forward to. I might be getting a bit older, but the world seems like it could use a bit of joy and understanding from each other now more than ever. Please pass some joy forward to others, especially at this time of year.

You could always try it and see if it works, not sure what to say.

You're quite welcome I appreciate your kind words

I didn't have any issues with Guerilla War using a verified ROM, however you definitely caught the issue with Exerion, it's a regression since 1.1 boo

Thank you for all your work on this, it's a great program!

The new version doesn't seem to like the directional buttons (labeled "Pov0 [Left|Right|Up|Down]" in 1.1.1) on my Logitech Cordless Rumblepad 2.

@Riony

Si,baje la version de 32 bit. Pero no funciona en XP. Una lastima la verdad, esperaba tanto una actualizacion de este emulador... En fin. Seguire con la 1.1.1, supongo...

Saludos.

Hi great job on the new release. I have a problem though, Jnes 1.2 refuses to recognize the D-pad on my Xbox One controller. I am using Windows 10 and I have verified that the D-pad is working in other apps.

Yea some input devices seem broken with the upgrade to DirectX8, it's an easy fix stay tuned hopefully I can put out a small patch. Thanks for the detailed and polite feedback.

YOU CAN NOW USE SWEETFX TO SHARPEN NES GAMES!! WAY TO GO JABO!!
since he moved to dx9 u can use reshade + sweetfx! but the xbox d-pad needs fixed bad! please fix jabo

i configured a good sweetfx preset, that brightens and sharpens, removes blur, makes colors of nes games pop more, i would not use hq4x filtering or w/e in jnes options, try default out and see if you like it better now, scroll lock on keyboard activated sweetfx on and off

here is a mega link for the sweetfx, just extract the 3 files and the folder into your jnes folder thats all u have to do!

Hmm, that sounds like interesting effects. How can I do that myself, I do not feel comfortable downloading files.

Robert 1483929448000 #18

I dont know if im doing something wrong, but when I download any of the links for this, or any other nes version, I cant open the guide, and no games come with it....
