The latest release is available here.

Nintaco is a work in progress. It is a NES-Famicom-Dendy emulator written in Java 8, ostensibly making it cross-platform. The full source will be made available per LGPLv2.1.

Getting Started

If double-clicking the jar does not automatically launch the emulator, try: java -jar Nintaco.jar

Configure input: Options | Button Mapping...

If you are using an 8 button controller, such as a USB NES gamepad, try mapping Rewind Time to Start + B.

If you want to resume at arbitrary points in the past: Tools | Watch History... and Resume Here

Looks great, just a bit slow though.

Thanks for testing. What are the specs of your box?

Can you select View | Show | Displayed/Generated FPS and run the ROM again?

Framerate goes between 55-60FPS, usually 58FPS. Whenever it doesn't reach 60FPS, sound stutters after about a second.
Found the vsync setting, it goes slightly faster if I turn off vsync.
With Vsync off, and speed set to max, I can get 85FPS.

The rewind feature is cool! Curious to see how netplay does. I get pretty stable 60fps on my windows machine most of the time.

Nice emulator

But when i open it via Java Oracle 8 runtime it does not react on input mapping (keyboard),
so i cannot control it

I can't view that pic here. What OS are you running?

My best guess: Some Ubuntu (GNU/Linux) variant.

Edit: That appears to be the Cinnamon gear, not the Kubuntu gear.

Try rewinding time over netplay.

Sounds like an issue with JInput under Mint. That is currently outside of the scope of what I can fix.

@zeroone netplay rewind seemed to work correctly. My buddy on Mac wasn't able to set his buttons at all (didnt recognize his controller or KB). His OS is el capitan 10.11.3


Maybe its the same Jinput issue.


Is there anything that would make netplay better/worse than nestopia+kaillera p2p? Or should it be roughly the same?

JInput claims that it should work under OS X, but Googling reveals that other people have similar issues. I'll try to get my hands on a test environment.

I never tried netplay under Nestopia. My implementation is just a simple TCP protocol. I really only intended it for intranet play; it may not be performant over a larger network.
