notecase is a solid program I've used for about 2 years. no easter eggs, tom; it's GTK made portable, which GTK isn't supposed to do. This guy figured out how. notecase is crossplatform. if you're always going to be an M$ drone, then you don't care and should maybe keep quiet; otherwise, don't knock it Until you try it.

This program is now called FCEUX, and version is at 2.1.4a (older version still available on website).

"The concept behind FCEUX is to merge elements from FCEU Ultra, FCEU rerecording, FCEUXD, FCEUXDSP, FCEUXDSP CE, and FCEU-mm into a single branch of FCEU."

Not sure about portability though...

For those of us who check these pages every day to see whats new, this program isn't categorized but from what I've read, I "assume" its a game. The description is very vague to those of us uninitiated.

thepiney on 2012-04-19 22:24

It's really not a game but an emulator similar to Mame and others. You add ROM files and you can play older games on your PC. In this case it's an emulator for NES and Famicom based games.
