FCE Ultra (also known as FCEU) is a NES/Famicom/FDS emulator. It is well-supported by this site, and it led to the downfall of Famtasia, the first known TAS-capable emulator.
FCEUX, the latest version of FCE Ultra, was a project to unify all well-known FCEU forks, as well as fixing a problem with save RAM.
Playing FDS files in FCEUX
A special BIOS file named
disksys.romis required to play FDS files (files ending in
.fds). It should be placed in the FCEUX folder.
Most .fcm files will sync with FCEUX when converted. Details on movies that do or don't convert are documented here.
- FCEU 0.98.28 is a rerecording patched version of FCE Ultra 0.98.
- Older versions may be needed to play older movies.
- FCEU.16 with Macro support (patched by Miau). Note that Lua scripting has, in effect, obsoleted this.
FCEUX has full support of rerecording, frame advance, speed slowdown, display (movie count, input), fast-forward, memory watch, and Lua scripting. All keymaps are customizable.
Older versions (FCEU 0.98.28) allow enabling background input as well as recording from reset. They have been taken out in FCEUX.
