These days it's pretty rare to see a new Mega Man game released, although Mega Man 9
did come out in 2008 for the Nintendo Wii Virtual Console. Even more rare is when Capcom graces the PC platform with a title. Well all bets are off, as part of the Street Fighter and Mega Man's 25th anniversary Capcom has collaborated with fan Seow Zong Hui and delivered a pretty amazing game for the PC platform. Announcements are on the capcom unity homepage
as well as downloads for Windows XP and higher.

Jnes is now available for Android 2.3 platforms and higher on Google Play
. This is exciting for me as it is the first platform I've ported Jnes to in the many years I have been working on it. I decided to port Jnes as I have been using Android devices for about a year now, and it has become apparent that there is probably more people using these mobile devices than Windows computers. There are many of the same features in the Android version, with more to come. It just got added to the store yesterday I'll be posting screenshots here as soon as I can.
I stumbled across some videos on YouTube about the rise and fall of SNK. If you grew up in the golden age of arcades you knew SNK for their superior arcade experience, ridiculously expensive home systems and cartridges. Were they crazy? How did they go out of business only to come back with new titles? Who makes a home system with a single speed CDROM? This well produced show answers these questions with interviews from people who were there.

I've migrated jabosoft.com from its crappy shared host to a new provider where I have more freedom in technology and better hardware. It's quite exciting to have a server to play with, my hope is that everything has migrated correctly, if you notice anything out of the ordinary please let me know, this is a work in progress.
In addition to new technology the URL structure has changed to a RESTful style, but it should automatically forward previous links as necessary. Lastly the DNS for the domain has been updated but probably won't resolve for a while. If for some reason you have difficulty posting here you can also contact me on Emutalk as well.
I'm happy to release 1.1 finally, it has a few key features users have been asking for a while, such as HQ filters and that cheat search Gent waited a few years for! Additionally there is many bug fixes that make this a worth while update. One enhancement I'm particularly excited about is the new browser box-art rendering, it's a nice step up from the previous release if you are using that.
As always many thanks to Gent for his motivation and help over the last few years, as well as the users who have left feedback during that time as well.
