About Mac Emulators
I am an Old School gamer with roots in emulation and gaming. I love video games, but mostly I love the old ones from our past. Emulation is a way to experience all these old games on your personal computer.

    Hello everybody:

    I have the pleasure to announce that OpenEmulator 1.0 has been released. What’s new:

    * The Apple-1 emulations are working. It is possible to emulate a stock Apple-1, a Briel Replica-1 and a Achatz A-ONE. Every emulation respects the memory maps and features of respective systems.
    * There are many virtual monitors that can be plugged in an Apple-1 emulation: the Apple Monitor III (with high phosphor persistence), the Apple Monitor II, a monochrome broadcast monitor, and a composite broadcast monitor. The broadcast monitors allow fine tuning of the video rendering.
    * OpenEmulator is most probably the first emulator featuring a fully functional Apple Cassette Interface Card (ACI). The ACI can be plugged into any Apple-1 slot, and allows sending and receiving data to the host audio system.
    * OpenEmulator is definitely the first emulator with a CFFA1 expansion card emulation. This card interfaces CompactFlash memory cards with Apple-1 computers. It can be used in this emulation to move files much more quickly than with the cassette interface.
    * The audio recorder is capable of storing the sound output to a WAV file, and can play back any of the following formats: WAV, AIFF, CAF, AU, OGG, FLAC.
    * OpenEmulator allows to connect devices dynamically to an emulation. Just open the Hardware Library, and drag virtual devices to the corresponding port.
    * OpenEmulator features an advanced video rendering system, using GPU shaders to implement advanced monitor emulation.
    * OpenEmulator also makes it easy to change emulations internally. Just edit the XML file and reconnect/reconfigure the software components that make up an emulation.

    With the best wishes,

      Thank you Marc. I don’t know why, but I always seem to have a hard time finding the latest build and download for this emulator. Is there any way you could email me when you update your emulator? I’ll be honest with you, I’m fairly intoxicated right now. I don’t mean to offend you in any manner or form, just looking to network a little. Maybe there is something we can work out, so I may properly blog about your emulator. Cheers!
