Integration with Media Center

April 12th, 2008 by Jabo Help comments: 8
Windows Media Center is a great platform that many use daily, so it stands to reason anything you can do to integrate more things into would be really cool. The goal of this tutorial is to show how to integrate Jnes into Media Center so you can play Jnes with very little effort from your couch. The Media Center team provides basically two points of integration.
  • writing native .NET applications that interact with their rendering layer
  • adding your application to the Online Media -> Program Library area
For Jnes we will use the second option in a very clever way, we will add the games individually to Media Center using the Application Registration utility it provides. Before we begin, let's load Jnes and configure some defaults.
  • turn off the intro dialog
  • configure input devices
  • in options -> video turn on go full screen
  • anything else you want like filters
We want to add the game Batman Return of Joker to Media Center.

Movie recording tips

April 10th, 2008 by Jabo Help comments: 24
Jnes records gameplay to a data file which contains the state of the NES plus your input. If you are just interested in capturing movies for yourself or sharing them with people who have Jnes, this is the most efficient way.

What's a little less straight forward is if you want to render the movie to an AVI to upload to YouTube.com or similar video sharing sites. Rendering to an AVI is easy, here is the steps along with the recommended settings. This already assumes you have recorded your gameplay to a JMV file.

Artwork Packs

February 24th, 2008 by Jabo Help comments: 15
To enable the artwork browser mode navigate to Options ▶ Settings ▶ Rom Browser. Once enabled the Rom Browser will display large images instead of default file small icons.

Configuring the artwork is a manual effort left to you, to change a game's image: Select the Game ▶ Right Click ▶ Change Artwork.

It's that simple! The actual artwork files you select for a game are then stored in the "artwork" subdirectory where Jnes executes from. Jnes simply stores the image with the same name as the ROM file you selected so it may load it later.

While no artwork is included with Jnes, Gent has generously put together a box art pack for US region games and it is provided as a download below. You are of course encouraged to download any artwork yourself not included in this pack.
