BNES Emulator Released for OS X
8:19 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

Mac emulation guru Richard Bannister has released a new emulator. BNES is an emulator unlike most. It is a Super NES emulator that does not use any OS tricks to emulate the host system. Instead, it is a cycle-accurate emulator meant for accuracy, not speed.

The net result of all this is the highest system requirements of any software I've released to date; those without a G5 class machine need not apply. If you meet the requirements, however, this is the most accurate SNES emulation available on the Macintosh platform.

Note that [...] this requires a PowerMac G5, and full frame rate is unlikely to be achievable on anything below about 2.3 GHz.

Like all of Mr. Bannister's emulators, this one is completely free to use. If you have the hardware power, check this unique emulator out.
