Jnes is a closed-source Famicom (NES) and Famicom Disk System (FDS) emulator for Windows and Android.


Windows Stable builds
Android Google Play store


Jnes is not very accurate[1], with other NES emulators being more compatible as well. It doesn't support VRC7 expansion audio, VRC6 expansion audio has swapped duty cycles, FDS nsf files crash the emulator, and noise emulation is of questionable quality. There is no good reason to use this emulator over more accurate ones unless performance is an issue (which it shouldn't be, for an NES emulator) and even then you are probably better off with VirtuaNES due to more accurate audio emulation of the latter. The Android version of Jnes was removed from the Google Play Store in December 2015[2] though eventually returned in February 2017 [3].

Jabo was an original main developer for Project64 emulator.
