Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

Nestopia is a Nintendo NES emulator for Mac OS X. It is a direct port of the original Nestopia developed by Martin Freij for Windows.

Nestopia supports a total of 201 different mappers, covering just about every known NES title. It can also open UNIF format NES games and NSF sound files. In addition to the standard NES pAPU, Nestopia supports six extra sound chips - Famicom Disk System, Konami VRC6, Konami VRC7, Namcot 106, Nintendo MMC5, and Sunsoft FME-07.

All roms are in NES.

Why is Nestopia so slow?

Nestopia has been designed to be as accurate as possible. All The different components are synchronized "as needed" on a clock cycle level, basically meaning that the PPU and pAPU update themselves only if an instruction is going to change the way the PPU render pixels or the pAPU generates sound or else they simply just wait until the end of the frame and then carry on. They all use the "master clock" as a cycle counter base which eliminates the need for decimals altogether. With this method many games that rely on perfect timing work flawlessly on Nestopia (Mach Rider, Slalom, Marble Madness etc).

This does mean that Nestopia is quite a lot slower than other NES emulators (which use scanline or tile based rendering). However, if you have an 800MHz G4 or faster, Nestopia is for you.

Famicom Disk System

Nestopia is fully compatible with Famicom Disk System games in .fds format. The file "disksys.rom" must be present in the same directory as Nestopia for these to work. Please do not ask me to send you this file; it is copyrighted software.

Writing to FDS disks is not supported on the Macintosh at this time, as it is a fair bit of work to do and not something I see the need for. If this feature is important to you, then please let me know by e-mail and I'll see about implementing it.

Source Code

Nestopia is normally covered by the GNU General Public License.

Martin Freij has generously agreed to license Nestopia to me under a closed-source license for the present. As soon as I have my API kit ready, a buildable version of Nestopia will be released with my shell library. The license for this has yet to be decided but most likely will be normal GPL with my shell excluded under section three of the license. This has been postponed repeatedly due to lack of time but will be released one day - honest!

Please don't e-mail me to ask about source code in the interim.
