Devour – SMS Emulator

I know that these posts have absolutely nothing to do with the Mac but I found it entertaining that there are emulators in the Android Market. I bought my phone for the keyboard, the solid design, and the social networking integration that MotoBlur provides. However, the thought of Gaming or Emulation never crossed my mind. It is a nice feature of the Android Market and a good distraction while I wait for my Pandora.

Use your Xbox 360 Controller with your Mac

There were several people on Facebook and Youtube asking me how I got my Xbox 360 controller to work with my emulators on my Mac, so I have created this blog post. You can use both your wired and wireless controllers, and use multiple controllers at the same time. My sister and I played TMNT on MAME on Christmas morning. It was rad and a fond memory for me. Follow the link below and download the driver. After installing the driver you will have a new setting for your controller in the System Preferences panel. You can change some settings and check the battery levels. It’s a pretty good driver and seems to work fairly well. My only complaint would be that the driving games are a little touchy with the stick, but beggars can’t be choosers. It works really well for old school games and is an easy fix for people who already own a 360 and are looking to use a controller with their emulators. – Mac OS X driver

New Version of Kega Fusion

The Linux and Mac OSX versions of this awesome SMS/Genesis/32X emulator saw an update yesterday. Here’s what the release notes say.

  • Made some changes to the config options. Hopefully this fixes a problem some people were having where Windows would fail to size the window correctly, although I cannot reproduce this problem.
  • Moved SMS controls into main controls window, matching the other builds.
  • Fixed a couple of problems relating to SMS controls.
  • Fixed preferred country detection order – at some point a couple of them got switched somehow.
  • Various SMS fixes.
  • A few minor 32X bugfixes and tweaks.
  • Kega Fusion For Mac OSX (Download)
