After surfing at XDA i saw this thread about NES emulator found (here) and tried it out, but soon discovered it fps'ed slow, so i created another clone of from another engine "SharpNES".

The SharpNES actualy runs faster without fps hack i did (2 CPU update, 1 CPU Draw) and gain enormous speed.
  • No sound (like the other one that i know of)
  • Only one game (Super Mario Bros 3)...
  • No save

XNA is hard to make a GUI as advanced as Silverlight so no game-change or save

Well i hope you like it

__ Zip in attatch -> rename as ".xap" and deploy

*edit - added source (forgot)

Have to say, great job. No slowdown at all. Are you going to continue to develop this or collaborate with some of the other devs working on NES emulators?

I can't wait till there's a final version. Zelda needs another visit!

I will continue for this project, but this was a small in between job because i could not stand the other emulator (just freaked me out, making my brain explode of all the lagg). My cause of small pause is that im developing a real marketplace app at the time so thats priority 1, although im 75% done with that, later i will update (if not anyone wants to provide an UI under the time).

Zelda, yes, for those that have VS2010 can just recompile it with ".nes" file of any game and change "LoadCart( ... ) in UpdateMenu()", although tested zelda and it runs fast ... slow ... fast ... slow ?!?!

I wouldn't mind helping with the graphics. I used to use photoshop quite extensively until I stopped for awhile. I'm not sure how the developer tools for WP7 handles certain images (or calls for them I should say), but I can help if need be. I created some graphics for the Gameboy Color emulator on the Zune HD. I get ****loads of homework so I can't commit to doing a lot though.

Sure, me to :/ Just 17 so.. that makes me go to school + programming..

But as i said, got a priority 1 app that i will sell @ marketplace, so this will wait a while. sry.

Un yeah. U need to make file extensions visible by pressing [Alt] in the directory and go [Tools] > [Folder Options] > [View] > [Hide extensions from known files], then ur good to go and rename it.
