Tantric has released a third version of his continued port of FCE Ultra GX a NES emulator for both the Nintendo Wii and GameCube. This new version addresses some sound issues from the last version and fixes compatibility with the Qoob Pro chip on GameCube consoles.


Here’s a new release of FCE Ultra GX – 2.0.7. This version includes a major rewrite of the video code. There’s now filtered, unfiltered, and original modes, similar to Snes9x GX. There’s also a bunch of new features, including rapidfire buttons, turbo speed, video zooming, cropping, widescreen, SDHC, wiimote power button support, etc. Note that the settings file location has changed. A big thanks to eke-eke and KruLLo, who helped with this release.

Note: I’m looking for a talented graphics artist to help design a new menu system for FCE Ultra GX, Visual Boy Advance GX, and Snes9x GX who has experience designing icons, layouts, etc. If you’re interested, please contact me.
