Nintendulator is an open source NES emulator written in C++ and made for Windows 32 Bit Systems.


    Nintendulator is an open source Win32 NES emulator written in C++. The original goal was to emulate the NES down to its hardware quirks; though it's fallen behind over the years, recent builds have caught up once again and can emulate certain behaviors most other emulators neglect to handle. However, this emulation precision comes at a price - a 1500MHz (estimated) or faster CPU is required to emulate at full speed.

    Supported file formats include .NES, UNIF, FDS (fwNES format), and NSF. Mappers are handled using external DLLs, complete with extra sound channels for most games which provide them. Other notable features include writing to FDS images (by storing the differences in separate files), Game Genie support (limited to 3 codes), customizeable controllers (including 4 player), input movie recording and playback (with re-recording), AVI capturing, and a debugger with moderate breakpoint support. Additionally, savestates and battery-backed RAM are saved within the current user's Application Data folder rather than in the application's own directory, allowing Nintendulator to function properly when not run as an administrator.


    Here you may download various versions of Nintendulator and other related applications.

    Unicode Binaries are intended for use on Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
    ANSI Binaries are intended for usage on Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me, though they will also work on the above platforms.
    Older versions were released in ANSI only (and are labeled simply as Binaries) - these should work on any of the above platforms.
    Only 32-bit versions of Nintendulator have been produced, though they work just fine on 64-bit versions of Windows. After version 0.980 is released, both 32-bit and 64-bit Unicode binaries will be available for download, and ANSI binaries will no longer be provided.

Latest unstable build

    This is a snapshot of my latest development code. Though this has features not present in the current release below, it may also have significant bugs, so download it at your own risk!
    This is NOT a release!

    Notable changes include added NES 2.0 support, various emulation fixes, and numerous added or improved mappers.

        NSF Player Winamp plugin - Unicode Binaries - ANSI Binaries

Current release

    This is the latest officially released version of Nintendulator. You are highly recommended to use this version instead of the latest build above unless you require any of the new functionality added since the last release.

    On June 22, 2010, the Winamp plugin was rereleased after it was discovered to have been completely broken. The ANSI release of the emulator itself has also been found to not run on Windows 98 and earlier; if, for some reason, Windows 98 compatibility is needed, please use a newer version.

    Nintendulator 0.970 (January 2, 2010)
        Emulator - Unicode Binaries - ANSI Binaries - Sources
        v4.2 Mapper DLLs - Sources
        NSF Player Winamp plugin - Binaries - rereleased on June 22, 2010
