RockNES Released for Mac
10:03 AM | Ryan Niemann | Comment on this story

A port of the popular PC Nintendo 8-Bit emulator, RockNES , has been released for Mac. This emulator supports nearly every NES game, and is completely free. Here are details from the web site:

RockNES is a NES emulator for the Macintosh.


It is by far the most compatible NES emulator currently available for the Macintosh, given that it supports full PPU emulation, full sound emulation (including VRCVI sound, used by some Japanese games), battery backed RAM, Famicom DiskSystem, VS Unisystem, and some 69 different mappers. In addition, RockNES includes lots of different video modes, as well as the ability to load and save your game at any stage. You can even record movies of gameplay!

The author, Richard Bannister, has ported many emulators to the Mac. For more information check out IMG Network member Mac.EmuScene.com .
