Install instructions

To play your downloaded titles, use an NES emulator of your choice (we suggest Mesen). Due to the large ROM size, the Everdrive n8 Pro is recommended for flash cart play. However, smaller ROMs have been included for compatibility with the standard Everdrive and PowerPakas well.

If the ROM doesn't work in your chosen emulator, it may not support Mapper #28. Contact the emulator developer to request Mapper #28 support or use another emulator.
