Mimic NES Improvements! - June 14,2001 by JoseQ
Only hours after our interception of the Mimic screenshots for the Rumor Mill, Mike Beaver posts even sweeter looking screenshots of the NES core in action! He finally figured out how the palette works, and has three perfect looking games displayed: "Defender 2", "Donkey Kong" and "10 Yard Fight", all for the NES. Check out the details on what he found in his update.

I don't understand the relation between your post and mine.
I was just pointing out that I didn't know there was Defender game for NES, and that I tried it for the occasion.

(To answer one of your point, CPU emulation is little when you want to emulate a system perfectly. Just download the source for a good NES emulator for exemple, and compare the amount of code between CPU and the rest)

OK, My bad :)

OK, then do a build without the CPU and tell me how good it works :)
I believe the most generous I can be about the point is that it is 50/50, you require both CPU and higher level (PCB describing) code. Without either you don't have an emulator

Anyway, I'm not getting good vertical scrolling in 10 Yard Fight, while you are ;)

In NoFrendo, which I consider as one of the best NES emulator, excluding portability specific functions, there's a total of 24327 lines of, 3338 of them being for the CPU (13%).

Emulating a CPU is long and boring, but nowadays, there's so correctly documented that it is not an hard task. And generally you can get 90% of the game working without CPU problems with an average CPU emulator.

decided you don't hate the nes anymore? (does this mean all the mario is a fat plumber comments are gone .. or did they go ages ago?)

theres pretty much everything on the nes .. although many of the games are totally sh*t :p

C'mon Omar, let me have a little of the stage :)
Maybe there are some people out there who want a free emulator.
Not that I am comparing Mimic and MEKA as MEKA is a class above Mimic. This is mostly due to the fact that I am only using code that I myself have written. This is why Mimic is so humble.
I only release to share :)
PS: I hope Marat gets a percentage of the takings considering it is his code that is most all of the emulating.
PPS: I am not trying to make enemies or nothing. I am just making a few adult points

but there are a million and one free nes emus already ... heck the hardest part about nes emulation is chosing the right emulator to use.. usually i end up back at genecyst ... (it runs parasol stars better than any of the others) .. mainly due to the fact you can adjust the timing tho, its a pal game and very picky, i think most emus are based on the ntsc timings :p
