Plz fix it or update it  to the next version and make people happy.

how do u save and load states

everything works at home? i can not open the emulator....

impossible to enlarge the screen since today😢

Doesn't work. Nothin happens when you click on emulator window. Lame 

Do I have to donate to play??? Clicking on emulator does NOTHING on Xbox one

Nope.

gba games in general is so slow

anyone else have problems with the emulator not keeping. save states? it isnt a recent thing either, its been doing for the 6+ months ive used the xbox version. it'll save just fine but if i come back later it will only load my first (oldest) save states even if i made ten other ones after that point. it's truthfully my only problem with this emulator. even when i check my onedrive files i cant find any other savestates so deleting my older saves to force load a new one is out of the question. 

Yes! Baseball Stars will save and then two hours later it won't save again... frustrating! Tried changing names of save file but no luck. Is there a consistent way to save and manage saves?

how do i download rom

After the last update of the dash of Xbox One or the gives update v3 to v4 of NesBox, began to lock everything, the menu of NesBox, all the games, etc. It was not like this before. Can you tell what it could be? Did this update of the Xbox One Dash touch anything on the Edge browser?

Had some success with a hand full of roms, but Pirate's Gold for Genesis will load but instantly reset when I press any button.  I've tried multiple rom sites, but all seem to be a copy of a once upon a time upload.  They are all in .bin form and changing the file type doesn't change the end result.  Anyone else give it a try? Works on PC and Android emulators just fine.

Mario's  jumps are super delayed in every mario game i play

the street fighter alpha 2 and alpha is not working please fix it

When I Played Sonic 3 The Sound Was Off And The Frame Rate Can Chug Sometimes and when i saved my game it got deleted plz fix it

I'm having a really hard time trying to play my saved games. Every time I load the webpage it takes me to the start even tho I am saving within the game and through Nesbox. And if I go to on drive I can see my save but I can't access it through the website. Please help cause I just lost hours of play.

Saving "within the game" could mean all kinds of things.  Here's what worked for me:


1. On your Xbox One, while you are playing the game, press the left and right bumper at the same time. (This hits start and select at the same time.  If you've mapped start and select to something else, hit those things instead.)

2. Go to the option that says "SAVE STATE" and press "A" on your controller. (and it is always the green A button on your Xbox One controller.  It doesn't matter what you've mapped the A button to for emulation purposes)

3. POOF!  Your game is saved to onedrive.

Now, to load your game:

1. Open the ROM you want to play like you normally do when you are starting a new game.

2. Go to the option that says "CONTINUE" and press "A" on your controller. (and it is always the green A button on your Xbox One controller.  It doesn't matter what you've mapped the A button to for emulation purposes)

3. POOF!  Your game is loaded from onedrive.

Maybe this is what you were doing all along.  If that is the case, I'm sorry that I misunderstood you.  Hopefully this is helpful, though.

Thank you Crimson,

What about multiple saves? In Baseball Stars the save state you showed worked great but many times it doesn't allow a second save or saving at a later date after playing. Is there a way to make a consistent save and why is it only allowing the save at random times per sitting?

Thank you for any further help you can give. 

gba games are so laggy pls fix soon

Today when I open this website, the emulator screen is just black. No annoying static sound or triple beep. Nothing.

Hi, when I launch Pokemon (Gba) the fps are too low is there something to fix that ? 

Hey, enjoying your emulator much but i have 2 problems maybe someone can help.  Firstly, super mario 3 and a few other select games sound and gameplay is laggy, is this a issue with the rom or the emulator. Secondly, the first time i played super mario world for Snes the save state worked, but i couldnt overwrite that state with a more current save, so i deleted the savestate off of my onedrive, and now it wont save at all. Did i break it? Lol

This emulator is awesome

I'm on insider preview Alpha ring also.

I've been having issues saving my games.  Periodically, when I start playing a game I will have lost quite a bit of progress.  Is there anything I'm doing wrong to ensure that the game is saved?

no the save isnt working 

The save works just fine as long as you save within 30 minutes, then restart Microsoft Edge

didnt work for me when i load the save it loads an older save and after a couple of days not playing the save is gone 

Here's what worked for me:

1. On your Xbox One, while you are playing the game, press the left and right bumper at the same time. (This hits start and select at the same time.  If you've mapped start and select to something else, hit those things instead.)

2. Go to the option that says "SAVE STATE" and press "A" on your controller. (and it is always the green A button on your Xbox One controller.  It doesn't matter what you've mapped the A button to for emulation purposes)

3. POOF!  Your game is saved to onedrive.

Now, to load your game:

1. Open the ROM you want to play like you normally do when you are starting a new game.

2. Go to the option that says "CONTINUE" and press "A" on your controller. (and it is always the green A button on your Xbox One controller.  It doesn't matter what you've mapped the A button to for emulation purposes)

3. POOF!  Your game is loaded from onedrive.

Hopefully this is helpful!

I'm on insider preview alpha ring and with the new dash on x1, the emulator is running for me at 45fps instead 60fps making the game unplayable. I've tried everything already even changing the browser have the same problem

It works for NES games ok but Snes games is the one with the slow framrate for me. I'm also in the alpha ring for insiders

could you pls go to nesbox.com and test framerate on the preview alpha?

Works like a charm, if it doesn't load the roms or the commands don't work or any other problem,  just reload page or close tab. That worked out for me.

still no luck for me...

I've been playing for a few months now with things mostly working just fine. But tonight, no matter how many times I reload Microsoft Edge, it keeps saying "Folder is empty" when I try to load from OneDrive 

I don't know if this will help but why don't give it a try, clear your xone cache: Turn it off -> After it's completely off unplug it from the power outlet -> Wait 1-2 minutes -> Plug it again and power on -> Check if it works

Sorry for my bad english

Menu screen is slow as well as gameplay/sound

slow motion mode?

tHE mENU SCREEN IS VERY SLOW, AND ITS BOXED NOT FULL SCREEN.

Could you please add support for Hori Fightstick controller?   I am able to get to the fullscreen, but getting stuck on  clicking A button to continue screen.  Thanks 

(Edited 1 time)

It is probably because there is no 3-4 player support and the joystick is registering as Controller 3 even if it's the only controller turned on :(

Need to add support for 3-4 players please!!!!!!!

(Edited 2 times)

When I click on the screen and then press A it says LOADING PLEASE WAIT... and gets stuck there and never loads. 2 days ago it was working just fine. I haven't changed anything on my end so I'm wondering if this is a broken emulator now or if there is some issue with my Onedrive or something. Has anyone else had this problem?

Apparently it was just a temporary problem. Working fine now 

When I enter the website on the new UI update for Xbox insiders, it crashes. (I’m using my phone to comment) The site worked very well before I updated.

all of the savestates work, except for mario kart. why is this?

<font style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">

Hm. This... actually works pretty damn well. I was expecting this to be basically crap, but no. I can play Chrono trigger and FF 6 perfectly. Sadly the gameboy portion is too laggy to be playable, but the nes/snes portion works beautifully.  I'm very happy with the work done here and a fix for the gameboy lag would make my dreams come true.

I am consistently getting an EMPTY FOLDER message when trying to load a rom from onedrive.  This has never happened in almost a year.

On the next version add N64, DS, Arcade games and more.

will a later version include a new console like PS1, N64 or NDS?

V5 should allow you to save the game and controll setup, as long as you have an account. So we don't have to start over everytime the page disappears or reloads.

When will we see Version 5 ?

I cant play GBA games :( so much lag please fix that, btw thx for this :D

how can i play normal? left bumper is select, but takes me to previous internet page. Y&B brings problems with internet page select and brings back that enoying cursor which kills your gameplay!!!!
