About TI-NESulator: This is a preleminar version of the final version. Don't except him to emulate everything correctly.

TI-NESulator is an NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) emulator.
TI-NESulator was targeted at first to work only on TI-68k calculators. But since this was my first attempt for making a NES emulator, I can't continue without testing if the emulation work correctly with better debuguer. My primary graphic library on PC devellopement was Allegro, That's why I am here.

Actually the whole code is nearly entirely portable, and TI-68k and PC/Mac version share about 90% of the source code (this will change in a near future). BUT the PC/Mac version will not be abandoned.

The project started 2 years ago, but the whole code need at least 2 or 3 month of work. Some parts are so ugly that I can't even maintain or debug them! It don't have a frame limiter, so it can be too speed, but it's often lower than it should.

Anyway "it just work", and can actualy emulate games using MMC like cnrom, unrom, MMC1, or using no mapper.

The readme is actually only in french (sorry) so, the needed parts are translated here :

Keys :
NES paddle Keyboard

Up Up

Others keys :

R Reset the emulator

4 Display/Hide Attribute Tables
5 Display/Hide Palettes
ESC Enter Debugguer

Usage :
Under CLI :
tines.exe ROMNAME

With Window Explorer:
Drag'n'drop the ROM on the shortcut NOT on the executable (because of working directory issues, it can't find the bnes.pal file without)

A Mac OS X executable will be available soon.

Public Opinion
Overall Rating: 4.0
  • 40.26: Works with some games, but chokes on most others. Also doesn't look very good, there are no configuration settings and all the instructions are in French. Looks promising, but it needs more to deserve a better score...
