Doesn't open ROMs

Gives an error every time I try to open ROMs I've used in other emulators (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070002)

No Save

It would be awesome if you could save. What is the point of playing a game you can't save. Its pointless

Great for classic NES fun

They claim that this app can emulate other game systems, but I primarily use it for my NES collection. It's not a perfect emulator, but it seems to run more stable than most of the others that I've downloaded and is extremely easy to set up. Add a controller and you're in business!

Love the emulation

NesBox makes it easy to play classic games that you own but can no longer play due to ware and tear on those old consoles and cartridges.

Fun, but needs to have a save function

I enjoy playing my old games on my computer, but there needs to be a save option and some sort of user guide.

The best emulator I've ever used!

I first discovered this when I first got windows 8 a while back. I liked it right away because it worked with every rom I wanted to use. I found I liked it even more shortly after that when I discovered it had xbox controller support. That's my number one favorite feature! It has nothing to you need to configure to make it work, it just simply works! You can reassign keys as needed and use controllers as well. I haven't used anything but an xbox controller but it works perfectly! This app has let me relive so much of my childhood, it's amazing :D Big thanks to the NESBOX CREW!!!
