Bannister Updates Emulators for Intel Macs
7:02 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Richard Bannister has released Universal Binary versions of 25 of his emulator programs. These Intel Mac friendly versions are the result of disappointing performace seen when running older versions under Rosetta. Some of the emulators receiving the universal treatment include BSNES, Frodo, and Genesis Plus.

Here's a partial list of some issues these updates resolve:

- Fixed an issue where keyboard configuration could occasionally get confused during an emulator upgrade. In this situation, the keys are now reset to their defaults.
- Internal code now uses FSRef instead of FSSpec.
- Placard drawing ("Emulation Reset" etc) now uses CoreGraphics instead of QuickDraw.
- Fixed an issue where Close menu item was not disabled when no ROM was open in some emulators.
- Removed some obsolete code that was slowing down overall performance.
- Fixed several memory leaks.
To learn more about the new emulator versions head over to Bannister's website at the link below.
