" NES496 is yet another Nintendo Entertainment System Emulator for Windows 95/98.

"I decided to write NES496 after taking CSE 412 -- a microcomputer laboratory course at Penn State University. This course gave me a new found interest in computer architecture.

"So, after surfing the web, I found several documents regarding the internals of the NES. With the information I collected, I decided to write my first emulator. I wrote NES496 for my independent studies course, CSE 496. (Hence the name, NES496!)

"Now that CSE 496 is over, I decided it was finally time to release this emulator to the general public.

"Currently, NES496 is far from being complete. There are still many bugs I would like to fix, and features I would like to implement. "
