Any reason for supporting 4 joypads, other than "emulating every NES aspect/property/device/whatever"? I seriously doubt about 4 guys playing a NES emulator in a PC.


Don't know if anyone has played them on emulators, but I have programmed/sold three 4 player carts now. I try to make Four Score support a requirement for every 8 Bit Xmas cart. There are a few other good 4 player games like Super Dodge Ball, Super Spike V'ball, and World Cup Soccer. They are all great with real people until they figure out the secret unbeatable attacks!

Unfortunately, it's a very low rate of people that uses 4 players games. Even in the emulation side, how many people are currently playing games for 4? Using a Super NES controller is something I'm unable to do it - there's nothing here about it, like a pre-made adaptor for PC or even parts for building such adaptor.

For effect of comparison, emulating the NTSC artifacts look much more interesting.

Maybe on the emulation side, but saying the 4-score use on aq console is low is stretching it, I'm sure if I had a 4-score it'd be hooked up to my console from that day forward. Why NOT implement it into an emulator? It's so trivial and allows for development of a whole other ballpark of games. It's a no brainer honestly, because it's simple. But there's many projects that use 4 controllers, a hell of a lot more than back in the day already I believe, like bunny said. 3 carts from him, some sound utility I saw uses 4 controllers, I'm working on something that if we had no ability to make hardware the 4-score would be the only way to get 16 bits/controllers. It's very common today when you look at the proportion to the NES library.

This is an excellent four player simultaneous brawling game.

While I've never played with four human players, I have done three. There's also an Ice Hockey game made by the same people that I think is also four player simutaneous.

My own homebrew game will probably also have four player simultaneous modes.

But you should implement whatever you want. It's not like there aren't already emulators that support 4 players at once that I can use instead.

Have you seen this :
4 NES and/or 4 SNES controller(s) to USB

Worthy games which support 4-Player mode :

Bikkuri Nekketsu Shin Kiroku! - Harukanaru Kin Medal (J).nes
Downtown - Nekketsu Koushin Kyoku - Soreyuke Daiundoukai (J).nes
Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey Bu - Subette Koronde Dai Rantou (J).nes
Kunio-kun no Nekketsu Soccer League (J) [!].nes
Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu (J).nes
Nekketsu Koukou Dodgeball Bu (J).nes
Nekketsu! Street Basket - Ganbare Dunk Heroes (J).nes
US Championship V'Ball (J) [!].nes

All of them were made by Technos Japan Corp. Most of them have English version. Some of them have fan translation. I have translated Street Basket to english also.

Changelog:
0.51
Added initial support for FM2 files (tas movies). I tested the fm2 files found at http://tasvideos.org/Movies-Verified.html and they all work perfectly. The file must be in the same directory of rom to work properly.
Added a system to display messages on screen.
Bug fixes.

Thank You!
Dendy timing emulation is good, except for freq. pitch-tables (see nintendulator src)

Sound test, listen Journey to Silius DPCM

Also nestopia src can be helpful

I've forgotten to uncomment same code in new squares emulation that results in distorted sound. Correct.
