Bannister Emulator Updates
9:15 AM | Ben Boffey | Comment on this story
Richard Bannister has posted a couple of updates to his superb collection of console and game emulators. If you've just run out and bought a Gameboy Advance but fancy giving the games a shot on your Mac, then BoycottAdvance/MacOS is for you. Richards' port of this emulator is now at version 0.2.0 and, like most of his work, is carbonized for full OS X compatibility. This version improves speed and compatibility - although a fast G4 is a realistic requirement - as well as adding support for saved states and battery RAM. To get your GameBoy Advance cartridges onto your Mac, you'll need an extra piece pf hardware' thankfully a great company from Hong Kong has the answer, see below for a link.
Next up is RockNES, which is a NES emulator and is now in sync with the DOS version 1.930. Although Richard hasn't had time to do a complete rewrite, it should work better than the previous version.
