Stifu, good question, earlier this year the rule has been overturned due to the simple facts:
One can buy these homebrew roms and play it on any nes emulator, why not fbn?
fbn supporting recent homebrews has lead to people finding a good game and supporting it.

Jay and Silent Bob: Mall Brawl looks pretty nice and fun, but I thought we had a rule not to support games that just got released to avoid undermining their sales.

FBN supports the game, the users can buy the game/ROM and use FBN to play with it... this also applies to all copyrighted games (Capcom, Konami, Nintendo, Sega, Taito, etc...)

Yep, times are changing (for the best) - where one can now purchase a game and have legitimate access to the rom, that's a good thing. :)

I have some questions regarding ColecoVision games... how do you enter "coins" in Mario Bros.? And how you can map the "menu" key for another game?

Neville,
regarding Mario Bros: they made it similar to arcade emulation - '5' then '1' :)
What other game(s) are you referring to?

ColecoVision games are sometimes hard to figure out, but if you can't get a game to start or accept input, try pressing all of the keys that the p1 controller has (0-9, # or *)

Some games that use a trackball / dial needs P2's keypad to start it and/or enter the level of difficulty.

best regards,

Mmmm... the "Mario" thing doesn't seem to work here. I'm using FBNeo Git 13-08-2020 x64. Do I need to remap anything?

EDIT: Got it, you need to remap "1" and "5" to their respective keys. Now it works.



Oh, and the other game I was referring to is "Super Sketch":

Relating to Mario Bros, you need to go into "Map Game Inputs" menu (F5) and assign a keyboard/joypad input to each entry of the virtual keypad (the original ColecoVision joypad embeds a numeric keypad). After doing that, you can press key/button corresponding to numeric keypad button 5 (insert coin) and key corresponding to numeric keypad button 1 (start game).

EDIT:
Relating to Super Sketch, probably the trouble is that it uses a CV device not supported by FBN... see the video:

Yes, thank you. I finally figured out "Mario Bros." by myself. Thanks for the tips.

In these days I lost (just a little :P ) count... in any case various ColecoVision games have been added to the roster! :)

As said many times, we don't accept hardware request. So no gba, neither the ones you previously asked (MSX2, Amstrad Gx4000, C64, Super Cassette Vision, ...).

We accept requests for games on consoles that are already emulated :)
