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.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.
