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.

Finally there is an updated version of the Blitter Library. This is only needed by those with Radeon's who were experiencing problems with the previous version. For more info on the Blitter, IMG recently published a very informative article, a link for which can be found below.
