1.2 will have a little more meat to it, gonna do another round of performance optimizing as well taking a look at a few games that doesn't work properly.
Awsome ! I was just wondering as I got the update on my phone and I came right here and saw nothing. I have a small request but, I will drop it via email.

Should we start reporting problems with games to help or do you have a list of issues ? You should post the ones you know about someplace, so we can add to it as we have issues.

Today... R.C. Pro-AM and Cobra Triangle scrolling issues, the score moves with the screen and it makes a mess (2 of my fav pick up and play games)
If this post helped, PLEASE HIT THANKS !!!!

Thanks !

Been working on 1.2, performance should be a lot better on all devices since I managed to optimize the rendering further. Still looking into fixing a few more mappers so more games work properly.

It's unbelievable how well this app performs considering it's limitations by the WP7 system. You have already made strides in that arena. Great job! I bought the paid version and still use the free version to give you ad-views/clicks.

Appreciate that, the new update shouldn't be that far away.

How's 1.2 coming along ? Or did you drop this for vSNESlight ?

(note:vSNESlight is not a valid project name before the rumors start)

Been somewhat busy with other stuff atm, but I'll have more time the following weeks to finish it.

I probably won't start any major projects before the WP8 SDK hits, which is rumored to hit next month if I'm not mistaken. Hopefully Microsoft gives us a lot more access this time around, assuming it's anything like Windows 8 development.

The SNES and the N64 are notoriously hard to emulate correctly because of their complicated hardware designs and quirks, so I will probably avoid those. Hopefully we'll see older native emulators like Snes9x/ZSNES/mupen64 ported over if we get c/c++ and DirectX access on WP8. (and everything points to that)

Honestly, I took a break during the summer with some of the time working on the Windows 8 version. And that was more or less a complete rewrite since it's so different from WP7, but it does have huge benefits like native DirectX, gamepad support and such. I also decided to switch out the emulation core with one based of FCEUX, which has better accuracy and game compatibility. And I'll of course use the same version on WP8, I've already played around with the leaked WP8 sdk and the new emulation core works with minor changes.

On to the WP7 version, I've already made some improvements to sound, rendering, fixed a few games and added the ability to take screenshots. But right now I'm very focused on getting the W8 version ready when the store opens up for all developers (right now it's only open to companies), I'm guessing it will open sometime in September.

I will take the time to finish up the vNESLight 1.2 update as soon as possible.
