Nestopia is a Nintendo NES emulator for Mac OS X. Nestopia is by far the most compatible of any NES emulator for Mac OS X. Using cycle-exact emulation, it is able to run titles that rely on precise timing, and which therefore break under other emulators. It supports five extra sound chips and an astonishing 143 mappers. This accurate emulation comes at a cost; Nestopia requires an 800MHz machine for full speed; but if you have one, this the best available NES emulation for Mac.

I noticed no issues on the ROMs I've tested

There are stability problems with Mac OS X 10.7 due to Apple's implementation of restoring application states. Switching between fullscreen and windowed mode causes the program to crash.

Any fixes for that? It's almost unusable.

Crashes after initializing Rom on Mac OS 10.7.2. This crash is most likely audio related since disabling audio emulation prevents the crash.
