I'd like to try and verify his problem on my own XP workstation, but cannot until the zlib1.dll situation is rectified. So, where is the zlib1.dll that was used alongside RockNESv1.exe and RockNESv2.exe?
Just to clarify: I was beginning to get concerned because others were happily reporting bugs with various NES games in RockNES, and nobody else was saying anything about having to manually copy DLLs into their RockNES folder to get RockNES to even run. Now that Koitsu has said he's also getting error messages about DLLs not being found I'm no longer worried it's a problem on just my computer.
All of the RockNES versions posted in this thread that I've tested* have the same DLL problems on my Windows XP computer. I need both libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll and zlib1.dll to get RockNES to run:
1. When I extract the RockNES files and run the RockNES exe, I get an error that libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll isn't found.
2. If I add libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll to the RockNES folder, then I get an error that zlib1.dll isn't found.
3. Once I also add zlib1.dll to the RockNES folder, then RockNES will run.
I'm copying the DLLs from my MinGW bin folder. (I already had MinGW installed for a previous project.)
* Here are the versions I've tested from this thread:

I just found your website now. I tried the two most recent versions on your site, RockNES 5.142 and RockNES 5.13d, and they have no missing DLL error messages.
