    What is currently the best NES emulator for the 3DS? I can't seem to find much.

    So there aren't any stable NES emus?

    How come? If Blargsnes runs snes games so well, wouldn't running NES games just be a piece of cake.

    Different hardware, different code, so the emulators are not related. In theory you could make a NES emulator that runs a little better then a SNES one.

    It's best to use NES VC injects instead, which work 100% flawless. With Save State support.

    Can you link me to a guide on this?

    EDIT: Will it ever work on 9.8?

    So you want to use it when Ninjhax 2.0 come out maybe we can use pastacfw and fbi on the future and get free games but i don´t think so

    Not always. Some games use expansion chips or different mappers and aren't properly supported.
    If on sysNAND 9.8, you're totally SOL. If you have a 9.2 system with an emuNAND, then you're in business.

    Shit outta luck. 9.8 sysNAND means you can only use Sky3DS (Or Ninjhax 2.0 when it's released), which means you cannot do injects because it requires a template file and will reject modified files.

    Smealum has already openly stated that this won't be possible with the new hack (maybe in the future if/when someone finds a way to chain it with another exploit, but not right out of the gates for sure).

    It's stable and pretty compatible from what it seems.

    It just lack a little speed up to become a pretty good emulator.
