OpenEmu 1.0 game emulator comes to Mac

updated 03:42 pm EST, Mon December 23, 2013

Open-source software supports ROMs from numerous consoles

Following a recent beta testing period, v1.0 of OpenEmu has been released for the Mac. The software is an open-source game emulator, letting people run ROMs from a collection of supported consoles. Options range from the most popular machines -- such as the SNES, Nintendo DS, and Sega Genesis -- to less common ones, including the Virtual Boy, the Sega 32X, and the TurboGrafx 16.

The interface uses an iTunes-style layout with consoles and game collections listed on the left, and a library display on the right, incorporating ratings and box art. Like iTunes playlists, collections can be static or based on "smart" criteria, such as the most-played titles. When playing, each game gets its own save state.

The software also features OpenGL graphics scaling, multithreaded playback, and compatibility with gamepads from companies like Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Gravis, and Logitech. It's a free download via Github.
