Online NES games

dont know if it was posted here, but I thought I would share

http://www.virtualnes.com/

Needs Java to run IIRC, but runs games fairly well, and if you use the software in the FAQ, you can use a controller 9much easier to play contra like that, trust me)

After i unpack them, i'll see if the R.O.B. works with the giromite game on there.

Bah! I kept my original NES...so I dont have to worry. Not to mention the local Trade A Game here in Spokane has the entire system for $45 with games costing $5 a piece.

Nice!
One of these days I'm going to have to find myself another NES......since my mother keeps mentioning that box full of games that I still have stashed over in their attic!

Do ya have to blow into your disk drive, and slide your computer back and forth 10 times in each direction? Now that would be an authentic NES experience!

You do know that the reason you had to do it was dirty games attracted moisture, and corroded the contacts.

blowing only helped make an electrical connection, and then corroded them more.

Oh yeah. That's why I also had the stupid little absorbant end stick they used to market, that came with a solvent...then i realized that a Q-tip with rubbing alcohol worked just as well

I miss those days...the days when you'd spend hours passing levels of Zelda (the original), only to have the save code not work. I think that was one of the earliest games that had a game save option.

The "solution" was 50% water, 50% isoprol alchohol.

Later designs (top loading NES and SNES) had better contacts, probably with a thicker gold plating to keep them from corroding. Atari games had been fine before that, but they had heavy thick steel and copper connectors that didnt have issues, plus there were only 12 IIRC to connect to. The NES had 46 per side.

And in case you were wondering, "Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start" does work. At least for Lifeforce. I didn't try Contra.
