Playing NES ROMs with gpSP

Playing NES ROMs with gpSP
You can play some NES games with gpsp with the help of theΒ PocketNES. You can convert the NES ROMs into GBA ROMs with following process.

  1. Download the PocketNes MenuMaker and PocketNES.gba files into your pc.
  2. Set the PocketNES.GBA file in the MenuMaker settings
  3. use the MenuMaker to pach a NES ROM into GBA ROM.

I tested this only with few games, and I know that it works at least on some level with some ROMs. No guarantees πŸ˜‰
PleaseΒ do not add NES gamesΒ to the gpsp compatibility list. It’s primary a GBA emulator after all.

    Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to play any game I tried. πŸ™ Just black screen.

  2. GunS says:

    It has long been using this method, because a 9.4 is not a specialized emulator NES. Thank summeli πŸ™‚

  3. janis says:

    Yes it works great

  4. DEAD_anarchy says:

    Of course it would be better on the contrary, because the GPSP emulator still distorted colors in games such as: Baldurs Gate Dark Alliance (in the menu and inventory), NFS Underground 2, Driv3r.
    Summeli, please fix it.

      summeli isn’t under obligation to do anything you want him to do. This is freeware incase you didn’t notice and if you want him to do something you damn well give him a huge donation

  5. Mickey says:

    Sorry, my mistake. Just look at the window of ManuMaker, if it says “bad” next to the rom, then it won’t work and you have to try other one. πŸ˜‰ It does work. πŸ˜€

    You should make a nintendo 64 emulator……please πŸ™‚

    That’s nice. Anyways there are many dedicated emulators out there for emulating NES on Symbian such as GPFce and vNes. GPFce plays nearly all my NES roms nice on my N97.
    I tried goomba color (a Game Boy Color emulator for GBA) and all GBC roms I tried are badly distorted and unplayable.
    But I tried Goomba on gpSP because I did not find a perfect GBC emulator yet, vBoy plays most games nice but with slow sound, and your gnuboy has no sound.
    Please, take a look to gnuboy, add sound to it πŸ˜‰
    Thanks for all your great work!

    Sumeli guidance can not be more specific? I try not to be skeptical that. There are no instructional videos?
