After the holiday release, user feedback indicated that game pad input POV hats were not working and Windows XP support was in fact broken as expected. I'm happy to say with a modest amount of work both of these issues should be fixed in this release, enjoy!
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 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 a lot more 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.

I'm sorry to inform everyone Jnes has been removed from the store by Google on December 2nd. After contacting Google several times this week, I have received a response indicating that they have declined to put the application back into the store due to perceived copyright infringement. Knowing that there are users that have downloaded the app already I decided to write a blog post now that I know it's not returning.

I haven't been posting news here about updates to the Android version, but since it's release a few years ago there has been many improvements. Recently I uploaded a new version to the Google Play
store that has the following changes:
- add your own game genie cheats!
- dropbox sync works again
- added migration from app storage for saves
Special thanks to Charles for letting me know about the bugs!
Since the last release there has been some important bugs fixed and I'm happy to say the Android version has allowed me to spend more time improving emulation compatibility and working on Jnes in general. Thanks to everyone who has supported Jnes in Google Play! The Android version has been quite an interesting project, the feedback and help from everyone has been great, I'm truly impressed with the Android community.
Today I wanted to finally get an updated version of the Windows binaries out that has these improvements as well as things that a few users have asked for. While this is a minor update I think it has a lot of key things that everyone will enjoy, I didn't want to wait longer. I know many have been waiting patiently for this update, for a full list of changes see the downloads area.
