An Update to BSNES and Some Words from Richard Bannister

It has been months since Richard Bannister last updated one of his emulators, but I check back from time to time just in case there might be something there. Today I stumbled upon an update of his Super Nintendo emulator for the Mac, BSNES. There was also an update on the progress of this emulator. He can’t update the emulator due to restrictions in the current operating system for Mac, Lion. Here’s what he had to say about it.

There is no way for me to update BSNES to the latest version at the moment, as the code requires a C++0x compiler which is not currently available for Lion. Once this changes I will see what I can do.

As usual, pick up the latest version of BSNES from the Box File Widget or from Richard Bannister’s homepage.

*Correction to the title of the blog. Cheers!
