NES Romset V2 0 1415 Games No-Intro No Duplicates No Hacked ROMS Incl Extras
For anyone that has gotten the previous versions, I want to point out something. I did not reupload the pack just for a dozen extra roms. If anything this should be the final update I do for it, for a long time at least. I removed a handful of duplicates and updated a lot of missing roms. The reason the English roms are less, is because there were some duplicate English roms, with US and European names being different. Also the Japanese roms are more because this time I did update Japanese Roms too.
Now to the rompack! I always am looking for romsets that are meant to have only a single rom for each game, rather than a lot of different versions of it, but never am able to find them. I finally managed to make this for myself and thought of sharing it, for people like me.
So this Romset is meant to be one that does not have any duplicate games in it and it is NOT for collectors, but for people that want to just get the roms and play, without having 5-6 different versions of the same game. My target is to keep a single game out of all the different releases, meaning that there should be only a single rom for each game.
I have gotten these roms from Emuparadise and thus decided to share them packed all together, rather than each one separate. If you want to play only some games and not download them all, then visit Emuparadise and get them from there.
This Romset is made from the large romset offered at Emuparadise and updated with the latest No-Intro (no hacked games) pack from Emuparadise.
I have tried my best to not have duplicate games, but even so, there might be a couple left that I did not detect. If you find any duplicate game, please do report it in comments.
There are 741 American/European roms and 674 Japanese roms, in the main pack. The priority of the roms I chose is USA, then Europe, then Japan and finally other regions. This time I made sure to update all the roms and remove any possible duplicate rom, even if the roms had different names.
Even if all roms are meant to be clean working roms, there are some rare exceptions. Games marked with (b) (there is 1) are meant to be bad dumps, but the reason they are in there, it is because there are no good dumps of them, and I keep them in my list to see if working roms of them will appear.
Games marked with Proto (there are 35) are meant to be what you would call Alpha release. Some actually work normally, but others barely can be called games.
Games marked with Beta (there are none in the main pack) are meant to be glitchy, but should work mostly fine.
Final Fantasy 2-3 are the Japanese roms that are translated to English and that means I do not include the American Final Fantasy 2, and the reason is that it is in Proto stage. Whoever prefers the American one, you can grab it at Emuparadise.
Keep in mind the the uncompressed Multigame Pirate Carts folder, when uncompressed it becomes as large as the romset, since I did not zip these to compress better with 7zip. But if anything I do suggest you
run at least once, one of the 10 million games in 1 roms!! If not, try at least the Bible Games! AVGN approves XD
I have also included some separate extra packs of roms, which are either BIOSes, SNES pirate or hack games and some other oddities.
A&S NES Hacks are NES games, hacked to work on SNES.
Pirate, Multi-Game Pirate Carts, Unlicensed Carts and Unknown can be games that for one or another reason were not Licensed, but are good games, to bootlegs or just some ROMS I could not check for integrity. Just shuffle through them, delete what you do not care for and keep whatever you like.
If you wonder what are the Public Domain roms, you can look it up in wikipedia, since you will understand it much better, than me trying to explain.
I have compiled a list of the Main Romset games in different formats, from normal text, to rtf and two different type of excel formats. The txt and rtf obviously can be read by the default Windows document readers, Notepad and Wordpad. The txt is simple where the rtf looks like a nice list in boxes, looking like an excel.
The Excel ones, ods and xml, are for either OpenOffice or Microsoft Office and they have filters to filter out versions and regions.
I personally use Nestopia, but the one that seems to be famous with people nowadays is FCEUX. It seems to be advanced compared to Nestopia, but since I never had a problem with what I use, I honestly have not tested it.
Finally I want to suggest LaunchBox. Launchbox is a frontend for multiple emulators and if anything it is the best I have found out there. It is easy to import games in it's interface, it suggests the best emulator to get when for each console, when you try to add an emulator and it has the best interface I have found. Weirdly, I like the free UI it offers (LaunchBox) and not the paid one that people that buy it can get (BigBox). The LaunchBox UI shows every game in a list with a picture of the cover or a from in game and that is really nice for me. The paid UI it offers just shows a list and only when you choose the name you can see any pictures of it. It can automatically look into picture databases and download pictures for a lot of the games. You can check the to see what I mean.
