EmuCR: VirtuaNESVirtuaNES for 3DS v0.92b is released. This is a port of VirtuaNES to 3DS as an alternative to existing NES emulators. It used to be considered one of the best emulators before FCE and Nestopia, and it runs quite fast for lower spec-ed computers (at the cost of some emulation accuracy). But because of that, the Old 3DS / 2DS is able to benefit from this fast running emulator core. This runs full speed on an old 3DS / 2DS with support for tonnes of mappers. Although it doesn't support every single mapper, the library of games that can run on this are probably fairly huge already.

VirtuaNES for 3DS v0.92b Changelog:
Finally I have some time away from work.

Actually, I tried FCEUX. After some optimisations, the best I got was about 50 fps avg. Hardware acceleration for the GFX seems less trivial than I thought (or maybe I didn't think hard enough). In any case, I didn't want to spend too much time on an NES emulator, so I found VirtuaNES and worked with it. Shitty compatibility, that much I agree. Speed was the important factor - my goal was to have it run on the old 3DS. And I figured it will be much much easier to fix mappers than speed up code, as evident in the more complete implementation of the MMC5 mapper to run Rockman MI and Legend of Link.

Then, I had some luck finding VirtuaNES Up on Github, which fixes some mappers in the original VirtuaNES. Integrated those fixes, made my own fixes, and I also integrated some ROM mapper patches from FCEUX. I did all these in a day.

My current dev version now runs DBZ 2 / 3 RPG (english) and FF7 Demake (english), and some of the Korean ROMs like Buzz and Waldog and Metal Force.
