    On current emulator they will never work. Maybe someone will port some other emulator on NES Mini. It's possible.

    It's not possible to do automatically (with some exceptions). You need to do it manually.

    It's very easy to automatically change mapper 71 (Micro Machines, Bee 52, Dizzy Games) to supported mapper #2. I'll do in next version.

    Hi Guys,
    First time trying this.
    I'm using Mac.
    I ran the latest Hakchi version as it says it supports wine.
    The program loads up perfectly, add games, cover art .... but then when I get to the part of syncing and connecting my nes by USB, it's stuck on the "waiting for Nes Mini" pop up.
    There's an option on the bottom to install drivers if not installed yet. (How do I do this on Mac)?
    I tried Zadig (through wine) but nothing shows up on the list to select, even after selecting "list all devices)
    (Also there is no chime sound when I plug or unplug the nes from the Mac.)
    Thanks in advance, hope someone can help!

    Hi, How did you get the drivers on your Mac?
    When I load the program through wine on my Mac it boots up perfectly but then stuck on waiting for NES mini pop up "add drivers"? When I plug my nes into my Mac it doesn't even chime

    @DJJIMMC You did hold the reset button and then turned on power, until you hear the chime ?

    Hi Mad-Mega,
    Thanks for your reply.
    Yes, I have done the above, held down the reset button/power on but to no success. I tried it holding it in for 2 sec, 5sec, 10 sec, 1 min but no chime or nothing popping up on the Mac!
    Does this work on Mac can you confirm, has anyone been successful doing it or is it just windows it will work on? Is it the Mac simply not recognising the nes when plugged into the USB as the Hakchi program loads up perfectly through wine, just not seeing the Nes Mini?
    Thanks again

    Yes, I used the USB cable that came with the nes.
    USB cable works fine connected to USB socket on TV for power.
    Just to test ( I also plugged USB into my Mac and pressed the power button alone just to see if it lights up and it does, so it does get power from my USB on my Mac also)
    It's Just nothing happens if I hold reset button down and power up when connected to the Mac to put it in that syncing mode.
    Would the drivers that it uses on windows be the same as it uses on Mac?

    If you can afford it, parallels is a great investment to run windows and macOS simultaneously, I've been using it for years.

    Uploaded 180 (!!!) games without covers - everything working. With slowdowns but working. Seems like my theory about RAM is correct.

    When starting a game. ~5 seconds of black screen.

    Anyone has these problems with FDS, Doki Doki Panic skips the intro, gameplay is great, Metroid FDS has a very long (half minute) between the start and actually the game starting.

    I have a question. I did the hack and have my new games in the mini nes. I would like to add more games but I am not sure the steps to do it. Do I have to do the complete process all over again or I just need a step or two?

    Could someone please tell me the steps to add more games?
