vNESLight 1.0 is now live, bringing a redesigned GUI, new controls, improved save states and much more. It has also been split up into a fully functional ad-supported free version and a paid version (vNESLight Pro) without ads. Unfortunately that means the xap file will no longer be available for sideloading. Both versions should be up in all of the marketplace regions by the end of the week.

vNESLight (free): http://www.windowsphone.com/s?appid=...c-2eda47745a27

vNESLight Pro (paid): http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=11ff...2-55f90de82b10

Version 1.0 features - 1-April-2012
- Completely new and improved controls + portrait support
- SkyDrive integration
- Fully featured jump list for all your games
- Fast and fluent multiple save states system (swipe to change slot)
- Backup and restore your save states via SkyDrive
- Pin any game to the start screen
- Auto detects the best settings for your device
- Experimental Hardware Keyboard support
- The demo ROMs of Battle Kid 2 and Super Bat Puncher are included

Method 1 for adding games: (SkyDrive)
1) Get ROMs, don't ask me where. (use GoodNES branded ROMs if u have issues with invalid files)
(Optional) zip, or rar all your ROM files to more easily add a batch of games at once.
2) Login to https://skydrive.live.com/, you can use any Live account u like xbox, hotmail etc.
3) Upload said zip/rar file or nes games to SkyDrive.
4) Hit the + icon inside vNESLight, hit sign in to SkyDrive and navigate to your zip/rar or nes file then just tap on it to add the game(s).

Method 2: (via webserver, or direct link from dropbox)
1) Upload the files to your webserver (or dropbox)
2) Hit the + icon inside vNESLight and enter the full link into the Url box and hit add. Support for zip, rar and nes files.

As always thanks for all the feedback and testing done.

Yeah that's what I'm most worried about as well, wish dev's had Mango already so I could do performance profiling on the phone, but at least it's possible on the emulator.

Looks like you're prayers were answered as dev's got it today apparently.

Aye still waiting for the invite e-mail for the Mango rom update, but I've already installed the new tools.

Currently pushing about 20-25 fps without sound atm, it's abit lower with sound.

Will be great to actually do some profiling on real hardware.

Yeah, actually more or less done with the beta version for Mango already, you can seamlessly switch back and forth between the game thanks to the new multitasking.

I'm just trying to figure out how I'm gonna do the UI for the Nodo version.

As for the age old question on how to add roms to the app;

What I've come up with so far is, first you add all your rom files to a zip file called "nesgames.zip" then you open the xap file of the emulator in winzip (or another zip manager).

Finally you can just drag the "nesgames.zip" file into winzip to replace the standard "nesgames.zip" file and voila all your roms are added easily.

Do you get any better performance on Mango compared to Nodo? If you need a tester, I can help out.

Sadly it didn't really, but it's helped a great deal by beeing able to performance test on a actual device.

I'll get the Mango beta version up in a couple of hours, just need clean up a couple of things.
