Bannister Carbonizes 3 More Emulators
3:09 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Emulator author/porter Richard Bannister has updated three of his emulators, adding support for 16-bit color and Carbonizing them for Mac OS X. If you have a sudden desire to play a classic console or handheld game with the Mac OS, he's probably ported the emulator for it already. Here is a list of changes:

First on the menu is Jum52 v0.5.2. This release now works properly with the release version of MacOS X, and in addition now uses 16-bit colour (and thus my new blitter library) to give a choice of 78 different video modes.


Along the same lines is Neopocott v0.3.9. This program is now Carbonized for MacOS X, and like Jum52, now uses 16-bit colour.


Finally, there is SMS Plus v0.9.5. This fixes a number of minor issues in v0.9.4, and also adds the new Blitter code.

Jum52 is an Atari 5200 emulator, NeoPocott emulates the short-lived Neo Geo Pocket handheld, and SMS Plus emulates the Sega Master System/Game Gear console. Jump to Bannister's download page to grab these emulators.
