4. Playing Classic Console Games > Emulate Other Classic Systems on the Mac

Emulate Other Classic Systems on the Mac

Play classic games from even more popular consoles on your Macintosh.

If you get a taste of emulation on your Mac [Hack #39] [Hack #21] , it won’t be long before you’re ready to find some more systems you can play around with. You won’t be disappointed—the Mac has plenty of emulators available that cover all the popular systems: the Super Nintendo, Atari 2600, Vectrex, and more.

As you’re accumulating a collection of emulators for your Mac, one name will keep coming up over and over: Richard Bannister (http://bannister.org/software/emu.htm), who has written or ported over two dozen free emulators for Mac OS X. In addition to his emulators, Richard offers two shareware applications: Emulation Enhancer and ROM Organizer, both of which are shareware. Emulation Enhancer works with many of Richard’s emulators, and brings full-screen support, network multiplayer, and USB game-pad/joystick support to his emulators. ROM Organizer helps you keep track of your ROMs, using the ROM images themselves to extract identifying information from the ROM.
