Who are you? Like if gho the main guy behind DxWnd move over to Github, only then I would consider it an "official" repo, but other wise it seems pretty unofficial to me when a random person sets one up.

What are some of your contributions to DxWnd? Why didn't gho set it up instead?

@Special, I'm just helping gho with the "mechanics" of the mirror. He owns and approves the mirror.

Tip: no help files are included in recent builds, so it is advised you grab v2_04_10 from Sourceforge which has the most up to date files.

BTW, the GitHub repository mentioned above by refack is currently empty.

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.
