RockNES is no more... - April 13,2001 by JoseQ
Much like the Dreamcast, one of the most popular NES emulators of all time has stopped being manufactured. RockNES will be no more. While updated ports will be released, the emulator itself will not continue development any further. There's no date mentioned on when these updated ports will see the streets, and there are no reasons mentioned for this decision either. I wish Fx3 the best, as he graced us with many cool RockNES releases and the same for Alexandre for porting it to the Windows platform. Major Kudos to all involved with this great emulator.

It's probably just me, and my comments are by no means meant to undermine the talented coders that bring us the emulators we have today. But, NES emulators are like belly-buttons, every-coders written one. With emulators like REW, and NESten, I don't see much need for all the other ones. This coding knowledge could be used towards emulating other (un-emulated, poor emulation, etc.) projects.

Just my thought...

I just checked the RockNES site....it seems that RockNES has just been updated to v.1.9. (DOS). Hopefully, the windows port will follow soon. A symbolic Easter resurrection??????

Many emulators come and go. I've seen hundreds cancelled by their authors. They usually go on to bigger and better things. This is I'm sure what FX3 is doing. :)
