EMUNews had these blurbs about NLKSNES...
0.15(d) Released! Nerlaska has just released
0.15(d) of their Super Nintendo emulator for DOS. Here's
Fixed a bug in HDMA that caused first line was bad
Fixed a bug in port 213c and 213d that caused some games
worked so slowly
Fixed another bug in IRQ handling
Fixed sprite bug drawing
Back Color is now implemented
Sub-screen addition and subtraction color is now
implemented. In this version transparency effects are
emulated in 256 color mode, this is fast, but the
quality is worst than a real Super Nintendo
Thanks to Kinopio for the e-mail.

EMUNews had this blurb about SNeSe...

roms but its getting there."

RPGe translation group formed. Translations include Final Fantasy 5, Secret of Mana 2, and Dragon Quest.
First SNEeSe Release
Available! This is a brand new SNES emulator by Savoury
So far, SNEeSe runs only one ROM, a demo by Yoshi. This release is primarily aimed at proving that
SNEeSe is not
"This release is purely to proove I am serious about emulating the SNES. I know there are a lot of
other emulators in the works, consider this another perspective.
"This version of the code can do very little, it can't even execute ROMS other than the supplied
PD demonstration. If you try another ROM (by renaming the file) dont email me saying it does not
work, I know!"
SNeSe's Homepage here - thanks to EMUNEWS for this information.
SNES9x for Dos, Linux, and
SunOs ports has been released. This is the much awaited

Rumor has it, that sound in ESNES is at hand. According to un-named sources, the next release of ESNES will include partial sound. Stay tuned for updated information.
Another rumor, is that SNES9x for Window 95 has included sound. As to the quality, and when this version will be released, is yet unkown.

Gary has released a second beta of snes96 .73 for testing. There have been several fixes, including the save/load feature, as well as some bug fixes, to keep it from crashing on some games. As always, don't e-mail me or the author about this. It only makes people angry, and then they will stop programming! We don't want that now do we!

GameMenu version 1.61 has been released. It is the official front end of the SNES Emulator Review team! Download it here.
It seems that nearly all of the problems with Zelda 3 have been corrected. The only problem is the rain background..(darn) but all of the problems with the dungeon are FIXED! And to top it all off, it has some of the best sound I've heard. Get ready all of you Zelda fans... it is working!
The information on Sound has 2 files for download. Z.zip and L.zip. A Zelda 3 .wav file recorded from the EMU and a Lufia 1 .wav file recorded from the Emulator. I suggest you download theses, as they are PRIME examples of the great strides made in sound emulation! Click here for the sound info.
