Name: NES Emulator for Windows Phone 7

Instructions for loading rom files:

1) Sideload the app to the phone by dev tools or some other means
2) The app appears in the xbox live tab among with other games.
3) Roms are added by typing in an direct http url (ie. http://www.myhomepages.com/roms/somegame.nes) and clicking download, if all goes well the rom appears on the main listbox.
3.5) Zip files are not supported. Get that Rom directly somehow
4) select rom and click play


Gaming mode application buttons are pause/play, save, load and sounds on/off
Most of the nes roms should work.

update: updated xap url, but still same old emulator

App or the emulator should appear in the xbox live panel where other games are.

It's really slow on my LG Quantum. @ First I thought it did not work, but my zelda rom must be corrupt ( or unsupported here ). It played super mario bro's just fine, just slow & no sound at all.

I dl'd it to my laptop, chevron-unlock ( 'cause my phone locks every 5 minutes or so ), tom's xap install. Put in the url to my nes rom, hit download, hit play & it plays.

Note: can ONLY be played in portrait mode. In landscape mode, the controller takes up half the screen, so you don't see much of the game screen.

recommendation: allow users to map buttons to controls in-game. ie, my Quantum has a nice slide-out keyboard so I wouldn't need the dodgy on-screen controller.

Damn that it's slow.

First priority should be to increase framerate to playable rate. Then the UI improvements.

Sounds are enabled by pressing the gearwheel button.

You need to get .nes files to your device somehow.

Currently only implemented way is to download it to the device by typing in a direct link to a rom file ie. http://www.myhomepages.com/upload/mario.nes (imaginary link)

Upload your rom files to your own homepages or find some files online and use those links.
