I am no longer going to maintain this directory. You can get many
more and up to date emulators for the Mac at www.emulation.net John Stiles has done an excellent job of organizing all of the
many different emulators available.
From the ReadMe "Asteroids for PowerMac is an emulator that pretends
to be the original Atari Asteroids hardware. It requires that
you download the original ROMS that contain the actual game code."
(Do NOT mail me asking for ROMS, I do NOT have any!)
Commodore 64 emulator. PPC native.
The precuser to DOS, CP/M! Remember that old Osborne and Kaypro?
If I rember correctly this is a PC file that Emulates a Mac Plus
running 7.1 on a PC.
Another z80 system emulator.
Apple IIgs emulator.
The PPC Native Macintosh Colecovision Emulator.
From the ReadMe "In a nutshell, MAME attempts to emulate as closely
as possible the original hardware of the early eighties arcade
games. As we discover how a game works, support for it is added
to the emulator."
From the ReadMe "This is a smartcard emulator for the Apple Macintosh.
It was built using the information given in Markus Kuhn's Season7
and the 8031 assembler code in DECRYPT1.asm for the secret(?)
algorithm of the BSkyB smartcards." This program is for the version
9 cards. Currently Sky is using version 10, they are already releasing
version 11 cards and version 10 cards can expect to be switched
off by end of July 1997. This progam may have other uses?
Emulator for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
PDP 8 emulator.
This is an Apple // emulator. Unfortunately the author doesn't
give much in the way of specs in his Readme file.
Space Invaders Emulator. Yes, the original stand-up arcade game.
Amiga Emulator. From the ReadMe "UAE emulates the hardware of
an A500 with 2MB chip and a variable amount of fast memory. Up
to 11.8MB RAM are supported. It works with all Kickstart ROM versions,
provided they are not compiled for the 68020. It supports some
(one, to be precise) ECS features apart from nearly all the functionality
of an OCS chipset.
UAE was developed for Unixoid systems. Meanwhile, it has been
ported to the Mac, DOS, the BeBox, NextStep and AA Amigas (it
can't quite run itself yet). The Mac and DOS versions are distributed
with binaries and a seperate README file that you should read
after you have finished this document. The other versions must
be compiled from the source code.
From the ReadMe "Virtual Super Wild Card is a Super Nintendo emulator
for the Macintosh.
As of the current release, it is known to run various commercial
titles like Darius Twin, Super R-Type, Turtles IV, and Super Mario
World in a playable state. It runs a selection of other games
with slight graphical glitches. Unfortunately the remainder of
titles do not work at all or crash the emulator."
Emulator of a HP 48 calculator.
Spectrum Emulator. A popular z80 based machine in Europe.
