  Nintendulator 0.985 beta 1/17/2024    
       
  It feels like the NES emulator news is very slow these days, probably due to some combination of maturity and lack of interest. As a result, it's always to see an NES emulator updated. With that in mind...

  Housekeeping 8/1/2023    
       
  Howdy friends, it's been a little quiet around here lately. As usual I've been taking most of the summer off, with vacations and the beach and such.

A quick check-in today - I did a little housekeeping on the site, fixing a few errors and removing some older updates. Hopefully as the summer draws to a close I'll find some more time to return to semi-normal updates.
