SNES9X Updated For Mac OS X PB
9:39 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

Emulation.net has released version 1.3.0a of the popular Super Nintendo emulator SNES9X. This version adds Carbon compatibility with MacOS X Public Beta. There are several features that have been removed or disabled, because they are not accessible in the Public Beta as of yet. Here is a list of what was removed in this update, to allow Carbonization:

  • RAVE — Removed from OS X. To be replaced with OpenGL, in a future version of SNES9X.

  • InputSprocket — Removed from OS X. To be replaced when HID Manager is available, in a future version of Mac OS X.

  • NetPlay — Disabled because NetSprocket is not yet working in OS X. To be fixed when NetSprocket is available, in a future version of Mac OS X.

  • Switch to Full Screen - Disabled because DrawSprocket is not yet working in OS X. To be fixed when DrawSprocket is available, in a future version of OS X. (Until this is fixed, you can switch resolutions using the Monitors panel inside System Preferences.)

  • Low Quality Video - Disabled because 8-bit video is not yet working in OS X. To be fixed when DrawSprocket is available, in a future version of OS X.

  • Arrow keys don't work - Bug in OS X. To be fixed in a future version of OS X.
  • You can rest assured that future releases of SNES9X will include these features, as soon as Apple releases more documentation on those issues. Hopefully, Apple is giving proper support to Mac game developers in regards to the aforementioned issues.
