Hacks 33–52: Introduction

Perhaps the most popular emulator software is MAME, the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator, which was discussed in depth in the previous chapter.

No matter what your operating system—DOS or Windows, Mac OS X or Linux—you’ll find hacks in this chapter that let you turn your computer into practically any retro console you can imagine, from the Nintendo Entertainment System to the Atari 2600 and more.

But that’s not all—hacks in this chapter will also tell you how to turn your Xbox controller into a USB game pad or play homebrewed Game Boy Advance games on your actual GBA hardware.
