The best Mac video game emulator is now even better with N64, PS1 and PSP support

OpenEmu Video Game Emulator

If you'd include yourself in that group, you might want to check out the latest update for OpenEmu.

You can now use any Android app on your Mac w/ BlueStacks App Player

Crossy Road on Mac with BlueStacks

BlueStacks, a free desktop Android emulator that lets users play any mobile game or app on the big screen with a mouse and keyboard, has mostly been limited to PC users until today. But Mac users are about to get access to the software that the company says already has around 90 million users on Windows.

While the app arrived briefly as an alpha release of Mac users back in 2012, this morning the company is launching an official release of the popular BlueStacks App Player software for Mac for the first time, allowing Mac users to play mobile games and use their favorite apps from mobile on the desktop. The company told us that it’s worked hard to optimize BlueStacks for Mac to take advantage of all the benefits of a larger Retina display and using touch gestures on Apple’s trackpads.

“Mac OS is a top notch platform and we worked hard to take advantage of everything it has to offer,” said BlueStacks Principal Software Architect David Reese. “From pinch to zoom on the trackpad to its retina display we optimized for everything.”

BlueStacks is capable of running x86-based and ARM-based apps, supports Android TV apps, and offers the ability to share files and content from desktop to mobile through syncing features. Users can download Android apps from Google Play in the same way they would on an Android device. Here’s a look at the app in action (click for full-size):

In addition to trackpad and Retina display support for Macs, it also offers microphone, sensor and camera integration, and native graphics support for running even the most graphically intensive games.

In case you’re unfamiliar with BlueStacks, the company has backing from notable investors including Intel, Andreessen-Horowitz, Qualcomm, and AMD, and also has a few OEMs preloading the software for users including Lenovo, Asus, and MSI.

The BlueStacks App Player for Mac is available to download for free from the company’s site today.

Developer hacks 20 year old Macintosh OS 7.5.5 to run on Apple Watch (Video)

Developer Nick Lee this evening has shared a video showing how he managed to hack an Apple Watch to run Macintosh OS, System 7.5.5. For those counting, that was released 19 years ago on September 27, 1996. The Apple Watch was released April 24, 2015. That’s a pretty impressive feat by Lee (via MacRumors).

Lee was able to accomplish this with an Apple Watch running watchOS 2 and the Mini vMac Macintosh Emulator. The mini vMac Macintosh Emulator is designed to allow more modern devices run software that was designed for early Macintosh computers. Macintosh OS, System 7.5.5 was designed to run on a PowerPC Mac at the time of release.

You can view the video of System 7.5.5 running on Apple Watch above. Below is a comparison of the sizes of two devices: the system on which System 7.5.5 was designed to run and Apple Watch.

A fresh look at iOS 7 on the iPad [Gallery]

9FEABB3F-17D8-4AA9-B8F8-8524DA6E4B18

Control Center iPad iOS 7, Game Center and Notification Center below

It appears that some developers have been posting iOS 7 on iPad (emulator) usage shots on the web. Aside from Apple’s somewhat hidden official images, there aren’t any other official images of the iPad running iOS 7 that are public. We’d heard even before the keynote that Apple was behind in releasing iOS 7 for iPad and as such initial iOS 7 betas are only for iPhones and iPod touches.

You’ll note the flashlight option on the Control Center which is probably just a leftover since the iPad doesn’t yet have a Flash.

Reader Phillip describes how to get iOS 7 iPad emulator running in Xcode 5:

Copy the folder:

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/
Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/
Applications/iPhone Simulator.app/Contents/
Resources/Devices/iPad (Retina).deviceinfo

to

/Applications/Xcode5-DP.app/Contents/Developer/
Platforms/iPhoneSimulator.platform/Developer/
Library/PrivateFrameworks/SimulatorHost.framework/
Versions/A/Resources/Devices

Then open the iOS Simulator and select \”iPad (Retina)\” as device.

(Current Xcode 4 and Xcode 5 is required.)

New Android App Lets You Flashback To The Arcades Of Yesteryear

cpsemu3

The arcade scene here in the United States is but a fraction of what it was back in its heyday, but that doesn’t mean that the love for those classic games has just evaporated. Capcom’s CPS2 arcade board has attained legend status in certain retro gaming circles because of its catalog of instant classics, and a developer named Cpasjuste has just given those games a new lease on life with a new CPS2 emulator for Android.

Before we go any further, know that I’m not here to debate the legality of possessing ROMs — it’s been a sticking point for the emulation community for years. Suffice it to say that CPSEmu was capable of running every retro shooter and beat-em-up I loaded onto my Galaxy Nexus (purely for testing purposes) without so much as a hiccup. Your mileage may vary there though, as some people have noted some issues with crashing on devices like the Asus Transformer.

If you do decide to indulge your inner arcade junkie, just know that getting a feel for the controls will take a little getting used to. The arrows on the d-pad seem thin and easy to miss while in the heat of battle, while the on-screen action buttons are just a bit too small for my tastes.

Of course, as useful as CPSEmu is, it doesn’t do much to make you feel like you’re slinging quarters in a poorly-lit arcade of yore. Those of you looking for a more authentic experience while playing Super Street Fighter II on your Android tab may want to turn down the lights and crank up one of these amazing Arcade Ambience tracks — it’ll be 1993 again before you know it.

Developer Cpasjuste has made the emulator available for free on the xda forums, but feel free to show your support for his work by buying the app from the Android Market for a hair under $4.
