VirtualNES was acting up again, so I looked for an alternative, and I found NESbox.

And it seems that (for our purposes at least) it is much better than VirtualNES.

The music stops playing when you go do something else. (which is helpful for when we need to write down some notes)
It's more user-friendly, with things like savestates, the ability to configure your keyboard setup while you're playing, and things like that.
But most notably, The emulator actually uses the same colours as the sprites we use! Whoa!

I like how the last pose actually looks like he's swimming.

Finally moved to an actual emulator, eh?

Savestates, huh? Hopefully won't be abused. :Þ

@Luigi_96: Actual emulator?! My VirtualNES is working extremely good! And it has state saves and loads! And keyboard configuring! And it stops the music while you're using something else! And the sprites I use are actually the same than my emulator use, except recolored for Windows 7 Paint!

Ah, yes, NESbox. Great site, that one, I used to use it a lot before I lost interest in a lot of the games I was playing.

Panel 11. Happens to me every freaking time I use that weapon.

@Djoing: i have been wondering why don´t you use an actual emulator? or an emulator package?

Reply hitkid96fan, July 5th, 2014, 4:20 pm

@Extremmefan: You're probably using the downloadable version of VirtualNES.

@Djoing: Didn't I recommend NESbox a while ago? ithinkidiiid

@MecanicalCH: We didn't need to, but virtualnes.com kept being unavailable, (Including the last two days, when we wanted to use it to take screenshots for things not available on spritesheets,)

(Specifically, the animating water (we ended up not doing that) and the menu.)

I don't think I ever used Bright Flash. Seams as though it does have its uses.

Hm, I just tried the NESbox site, and.. WOW is there serious control delay. I was just testing it out with MM3 in Magnet Man stage, and the delay I get when firing my buster on NESbox compared to my usual emulator Nestopia* was quite severe.

Although originally I did try doing Magnet Man's stage on NESbox anyway to test the site out. I was wondering why I kept missing all the Yoku blocks despite me actually pressing the buttons on time.

EDIT: Heh, I was about to test it on VirtualNES.. but the site's down. Typical.

*EDIT2: I figured out why my NEStopia palettes were iffy. NEVERMIND. BRACKET-THING REMOVED.

@Neon-J:
VirtualNES being down is the reason this topic was brought up in the first place.

Reply Extremmefan, July 6th, 2014, 1:09 pm

@hitkid96fan: Yup! I downloaded the VirtuaNES I use (ages ago!).

@leo_dragon_knight: Pharaoh Man is a pushover with it, I always use it against him.

@Djoing: Why not just download Jnes? It has good graphics, no lags, and even built-in cheats for every NES game ever!

Reply hitkid96fan, July 7th, 2014, 9:39 am

@Thunderbolt 27: Actually I found out with one of the emulators that built-in cheats are actually cheats saved by the previous owners of the roms.

Reply Thunderbolt 27 (Guest), July 9th, 2014, 11:03 am

@hitkid96fan: They're still cheats. Example: Mega Jump, Infinite Health, Infinite Weapons (Including Rush, Items 1-3, etc), and Infinite E Tanks.

first of all: using cheats would defeat the entire point of the comic.
Second: Djoing, you haven't updated the faq at time of writing.

@youdont12know: Fixed it.
