The Multiple Video Game System
I woke up feeling under the weather, so I took the day off and stayed home playing Super Castlevania IV all day (which probably had the best soundtrack, ever). I have no regrets. And I thought this was a great opportunity to talk about how I did that.
OpenEmu is the premiere emulator for Mac OS X. It supports almost every single console ever developed (all the way up to the PlayStation and PSP) and does it with style, grace, and the legendary Apple “it just works” philosophy. It even supports MAME, something that OS X has historically always been left out of (which is currently part of the experimental branch).
Everything is modular. The cores can be installed separately. So it can use whatever you fancy. You want Nestopia instead of FCEU for NES emulation, no problem. It’s built about as smart as you can get. And anyone that is familiar with emulation knows that’s always the missing component. Emulators aren’t friendly. At all.
The UI and Ux are exceptional. Steered by David McLeod (or Mucx), who did the artwork and who is a professional designer in Cali.
And best of all, it’s a free, open source project with the codebase available on GitHub.
OpenEmu really is one of the most marvellous projects to ever see the light of day. It has been in development for years and was released officially at the end of 2013. Seriously, if you are an old school video game buff, and have a Mac, check it out. It’s absolutely legendary.
