History

NES

The early history of NES emulation is vague, but there are some early emulators known to public.

  • Family Computer Emulator V0.35 for FM Towns, by "Haruhisa Udagawa", with file timestamps of December 12, 1990.
  • Pasofami for the FM Towns, with a release date of May 1, 1993 in its info file. Windows version was released on 1996.
  • LandyNES by Alex Krasivsky, which seems became the base of iNES emulator. At least one beta version was released to the public, but discontinued after the release of NESticle. No release date known but likely mid to late 1990s.
  • Marat Fayzullin's iNES (also known as interNES in early versions) is the first (or at least one of the first) emulator to use NES header format (also known as iNES format). The release date of first version is 1996 according to its site.
  • NESticle (first version known as v0.2) was released on April 3, 1997. It was one of the first freeware NES emulators.
