This post is about osx console emulators. It should help you pick the best emulators for your games
Gameboy / Gameboy Advance emulators
Super Nintendo Emulators
Openemu supports SNES, but if you are looking for a standalone emulator then try Snes9x [or znsnes, or bsnes]
Snes 9x is an awesome emulator for snes games.
If you run the standalone snes9x rather than the open emu component then you can follow this post and use your iPhone as a snes controller :)
combined with an AppleTV and the new multiple desktops features on osx mavericks you can [nearly] play the games as well as it were an actual snes!
open emu supports:
- gameboy / colour / advance
- sega mastersystem
- sega gamegear
- sega genesis / sega megadrive
when you first install open emu it will ask if you want to install âcoresâ these cores are actually full emulators
I just clicked ‘install all cores’.
In the beta version the game browser isnât available, but you can still load roms by going to the file menu.
I was able to play snes games, and I was able to play gameboy advance games (zelda) with no problems.
