A year ago Jnes got suspended from the Google Play, and despite an appeal they were not willing to change this. The entire transition from having a well regarded app to nothing was jarring given countless hours spent coding. I tried to forget about this and focus on other things for a while.
Figuring out how to move forward from here was a tricky puzzle others have experienced. In my case, I didn't want to change the app or alienate anyone who funded development by purchasing it. However after a year of watching Jnes sit on the shelf, I decided to publish a free version with the all the base functionality you would expect from an emulator, there is an in-app purchase for extra features like Bluetooth Netplay.

After the holiday release, user feedback indicated that game pad input POV hats were not working and Windows XP support was in fact broken as expected. I'm happy to say with a modest amount of work both of these issues should be fixed in this release, enjoy!

It's been a year since I've posted here, but even longer since a release for Jnes for Windows, over three years in fact. Since the last Windows release there were pretty big changes under the hood to get Jnes to work on Android, and in the background I have been trying to also improve the accuracy of the emulator. While Jnes has proud tradition of playing most games, there are some subtle hardware behaviors that Jnes was not able to emulate correctly. I've made some progress on improving that in this release, you are unlikely to notice it unless it breaks something. Cheats also got reworked significantly, editing should be a lot more stable. There are a slew of new awesome cheat codes from Gent
, please give him some thanks for all his hard work in helping put this release together.

I'm sorry to inform everyone Jnes has been removed from the store by Google on December 2nd. After contacting Google several times this week, I have received a response indicating that they have declined to put the application back into the store due to perceived copyright infringement. Knowing that there are users that have downloaded the app already I decided to write a blog post now that I know it's not returning.

I haven't been posting news here about updates to the Android version, but since it's release a few years ago there has been many improvements. Recently I uploaded a new version to the Google Play
store that has the following changes:
- add your own game genie cheats!
- dropbox sync works again
- added migration from app storage for saves
Special thanks to Charles for letting me know about the bugs!
