I see it still has accuracy problems that negatively affect compatibility. So who wants to be the first to try some of blargg's tests (or others) on the latest version?

It won't be me. It crashes after I select a .pal file to open.

iNES sound is horrible. I don't hear DPCM-channel ;)
I think iNES still very buggy because it was non-free all these years.
Few people used it...

If folks want to bang on gongs over iNES incompatibility and issues, I also suggest you do the exact same for the ridiculous number of other NES emulators out there. The list grows long.

And on a positive note: did anyone actually see the debugging feature? I at least thought that was kinda neat/unique (given that it's implemented where it is, and not as an external window).

Sure, start a thread about any of those other emulators and maybe I'll try one of them long enough to complain in its thread.

The problem is, iNES was that inaccurate AND you were expected to pay for it. Other emulators are free with or without accuracies. No disrespect to Marat; he obviously wrote all of his emulators long before the research into loopy timing etc. was even done.

Clever. That way it can be ported to any platform without using any platform specific code.

iNES 4.7 for windows is out. APU is rewritten, but DPCM still buggy.

When i try to set SONY_CXA2025AS.pal (comes with puNES/FCEUX)
there is "Failed loading palette" error.

Marat say about it:
"iNES can load palettes as text-code but not binary files (you can open .pal-files comes with iNES windows via text-editor)"

All *.pal-files what i can found on net are binary. Even old nesticle.pal (comes with nesticle 0.42)
But all palettes of iNES package are text-files. This is strange.

Post a text palette in a zipfile, and if I can figure it out, I might be able to write a converter between binary palettes and iNES text palettes. (If you're lucky, I might throw in support for GIMP text palettes as well.)
