PX-68K is a Sharp X68000 emulator. This is a Japanese home computer from the late '80s/early '90s that was used by Capcom as devkits for their arcade games. It played host to many popular games from the likes of Namco, Konami and Capcom.
For many years now I have been porting emulators by other others to Mac OS. Mugrat marks my first attempt at writing one of my own, in this case to emulate the Colecovision. The hardware in question is quite possibly the simplest machine to be built around the Z80 processor, which makes it simple to emulate. Maybe I'll try something more complicated for my next...
The project uses a modular design based around a Z80 core emulator class library. The rest of the Sega-specific emulation is implemented in another class library, and the user interface is implemented as a separate application. This...
Fuse (the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator) was originally, and somewhat unsurprisingly, a ZX Spectrum emulator for Unix. However, it has now also been ported to Mac OS X, which may or may not count as a Unix variant depending on your advocacy position. It has also been ported to Windows, the Wii, AmigaOS and MorphOS, which are definitely not Unix variants.
If you just want news of new versions and the like, the (low volume) fuse-emulator-announce list is available. If you're interested in the development of Fuse, this is coordinated via the fuse-emulator-devel list and the project page on SourceForge.
The Free Unix Spectrum Emulator (Fuse) is an emulator of the 1980s ZX Spectrum home computer and its various clones for Unix, Windows and macOS. Fuse is free software, released under the GNU General Public License. There are ports of Fuse to several platforms including GP2X, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Wii, the Nokia N810, and Android (as the Spectacol project).
The project was started in 1999 and is still under development as of 2019[update]. It has been recognised as one of the most full-featured and accurate Spectrum emulators available for Linux, and portions of its code have been ported and adapted for use in other free software projects such as the Sprinter emulator SPRINT and the ZX81 emulator EightyOne.
Plenty of modern-day Mac users started out on old PCs. However, running old PC software on modern Macs requires DOSBox, a capable but sometimes fiddly and obtuse emulator (in part due to DOS itself being fiddly and obtuse). A far better bet is Boxer, a version of DOSBox designed specifically for Macs and ease of use.
Having started life as a Pac-Man emulator in 1997, MAME has grown into a project that aims to preserve the entirety of arcade game history of the coin-operated variety. A rather nice side effect is being able to play said games if you install MAME.
Rainbow was one of the first emulators available for Macintosh. Despite this, it has fairly good compatibility with original software. The Mac OS X version adds an improved GUI and significantly improved sound to the original version.
VSS is an Atari 5200 Super System emulator for MSDOS. The current version runs about 95% of the ROM images I have almost flawlessly, and at a reasonable speed. To use the emulator you will need a copy of the 5200's 2K BIOS ROM, and 5200 ROM cart images.
Atari800 is an Atari 800, 800XL, 130XE and 5200 emulator for Unix, Amiga, MS-DOS, Atari TT/Falcon, SDL and WinCE. Our main objective is to create a freely distributable portable emulator (i.e. with source code available). It can be configured to run in the following ways :
The Atari++ Emulator is a Unix based emulator of the Atari eight bit computers, namely the Atari 400 and 800, the Atari 400XL, 800XL and 130XE, and the Atari 5200 game console. The emulator is auto-configurable and will compile on a variety of systems (Linux, Solaris, Irix). Its emulation features are stunning:
Macintosh computers have always included a platform-exclusive operating system that never had a consistent name.[N 1] An important divide relevant for Mac emulation is \"Old World\" vs. \"New World\" motherboard ROMs, with Old World used for System 1-7 on 68k/PPC targets, and New World generally used for Mac OS 8-10 PPC targets, since New World ROMs were stored with the OS, they are available legally from Apple for free online in OS updates. A quick way to distinguish an Old World from a New World Mac is that all New World Macs have onboard USB ports, while no Old World Macs do. Mac OS 8.5 dropped support for 68k CPUs. Mac OS X, which has UNIX underpinnings different from its predecessor, was introduced in 1999 requiring a PowerPC G3 at minimum,[N 2] and ported to x86 in 2006. With version 11 in 2020, macOS is now being ported to ARM (like its mobile cousin iOS).
A ton of Macintosh emulators have appeared over the years, some early in the system's release (mostly for competing m68k microcomputers) and others as late as a few years ago. As a PC platform in its own right with its own userbase and varying degrees of unique software and hardware features, most major emulators of other platforms maintain a macOS port, or are ported to macOS by external collaborators, in addition to a number of emulators originating on the Mac over the years. It should be noted that we do not aim to be the last word on Mac emulation; there's a community called E-Maculation that covers this more thoroughly, as they offer builds for many of the emulators shown here on their forums. We'll either be further ahead or severely behind.
Currently, no 3rd-party Macintosh emulators support hardware graphics acceleration, due to certain CPU instructions left unimplemented in their upstream PPC softcores. This means no GLIDE, RAVE, or OpenGL. Fortunately, though as was generally the case in every platform of the period significant visual and feature differences exist between the two, the majority of Mac-exclusive software using these APIs also included software fallback renderers.
ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical adventure and role-playing games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed! ScummVM is a complete rewrite of these games' executables and is not an emulator.
You can find a full list with details on which games are supported and how well on the compatibility page. ScummVM is continually improving, so check back often. Among the systems on which you can play those games are Windows, Linux, macOS, iOS, Android, PS Vita, Switch, Dreamcast, AmigaOS, Atari/FreeMiNT, RISC OS, Haiku, PSP, PS3, Maemo, GCW Zero and many more...
ScummVM has made huge strides in Macromedia Director support. Many Director 3 games are now fully completable, and several Director 4 games are also now playable. 18 new games are officially supported, and we could use your help testing them. We also welcome reports of any other Director games which are fully playable or completable. To test these new games, please use the latest daily build of ScummVM. Any bugs or problems can be reported to the issue tracker.

We are in 2010 and Microsoft still doesn't have a C99 compliant compiler.I have more #ifdef and similar crap in my code to work around Microsoft 'Developer Friendliness' than all other supported platform combined, including z/OS.

So you're saying it's not a representative sample.

What do you mean by crap I am having lots of fun and getting a lot of use from maemo apps and features on my n900. The Ovi store may not have a ton of free apps for download, but the maemo does have a lot of the standard software you would expect to see on or available to a more conventional desktop install of debian or ubuntu (x-windows, wireshark, pidgin, snes and bochs emulators, freeciv, vpnc, gnumeric, etc...) The last time I checked there was no way to run an x-server for android(outside of vnc) or the iPhone. Well it works out of the box in maemo.This morning I wrote a python script on my phone that helps me catch my morning train. :)Last week I had windows 95 running inside of bochs on it. :) shiny vs freedom, shiny wins Posted Jul 17, 2010 15:21 UTC (Sat) by nhippi (guest, #34640) [Link] 1e1e36bf2d
