  • 'Can't repack ramdisk' error on some systems should be gone now.
  • Device detection bug fixed (thanks to David Winter!)
  • Automatic file attributes fix (e.g. "WinRAR" bug fixed).
  • Game selection presets. Now you can create presets for favorite games, party games, etc. It's useful since NES Mini don't like huge amount of games at once.
  • Search by first letters of game, just press Ctrl+F.
  • Much better PNG compression for covers, x4 more disk space.
  • NES carts database with release dates, publishers, etc. Just add game and all fields will be filled automatically if it exists in database.
  • Automatic IPS patches. Now you don't need other application to patch problem games. Patch files stored in "patch" folder. Problem game will be detected automatically by CRC32 checksum. Release already contains patches for "Battletoads", "Robocop 3", "Snow Bros.", "Bill & Ted's Excellent Video Game Adventure" and "Startropics II". You can add and your own patches too.
  • Game Genie support. Just enter your codes (comma/spaces/semicolon separated) in special field and sync. Cheats will be activated automatically.
  • Mapper #87 added to list of confirmed mappers.
  • Epilepsy protection settings - you can disable epilepsy protection for original 30 games or for all games at once.
  • Clovercon hack! Now you can exit to menu using "Down+Select" combination. All you need now is controller cable extension...
  • Some interface improvements - you can delete games using del key, etc.
  • Many minor bugfixes.

There is also debug version. It's only for users with some problems, for debugging.
