ares v126 released
2021-11-28 08:30:00

ares v126 brings even more improvements to the NES/Famicom emulation by adding support for many more rom mappers. Compatibility for MSX1/MSX2 has also improved as a result of adding heuristics for better mapper detection.

An issue that prevented Windows users from mapping inputs in v125.1 has also been fixed.
