Emulator Updates
7:56 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

It's always good to see another update by John Stiles at his web site While there are a dozen new updates on the status of various emulators, the most interesting developments to report are to the Super Nintendo emulator SNES9X which Stiles himself is working on. A number of improvements are listed for version 1.3.0, including compatibility with a future operating system:

This version includes many new features, such as Mode 7 Smoothing, as well as several compatibility fixes. The most important change to the emulator, however, is that SNES9X has been fully Carbonized, so it is ready to run natively on Mac OS X! Native Mac OS X applications can take advantage of seamless multitasking, and have increased stability. (Mac OS 8.1 and the CarbonLib extension are now required to run SNES9X.)
Great to hear those partaking in the OS X beta due out a week from tomorrow will have some games to play. Another of Stiles' porting projects, a Gameboy Color emulator called Virtual Gameboy, has also been updated. Version 1.7 adds compatibility improvements and now supports the Gameboy real-time clock for Freeze and Defrost features. As always, head on over to for tons of other emulation-related information and downloads.
