Awesome app, very stable and easy to use. Some advice for those who run into problems with ROM files...it is probably a bad ROM file, not the app.

I asked the author why I had to continually update their software and if they could do a software update program for their software to make the lives of their users much easier instead of having to download a new copy almost monthly, unstuff it and replace the old version.

It gets even more complex with the Emulator Enhancer add on which also needs regular updates.

This is the reply that I recieved when I voiced these concerns:

"I see no need for automatic updating, as such a feature provides a whole lot of dead traffic to my web site - which
has to be paid for - and is a relatively minor issue as anyone who looks at my web page can quickly see what the latest versions are."
-Richard Bannister March 13, 2006

So all we, the users, are to the author is traffic. This concept of visiting a website would be a decent idea in the ideal world but must be a complete headache for the modem users, the people that lack a constant internet connection and the people who actually want to play these emulators.

If the author desires so much traffic then maybe he can do so by providing some content on the webpage such as more information/help files/forums on the products he offers instead of forced updates.

I want to run an application that works, not a car that needs tuneups, upgrades add ons and trips to get serviced.

Wow, that has to be the most retarded reason for someone to give an app one star, because you're too lazy to manually update.

Note: Downloading ROMs is illegal in most cases. Do not ask for ROMs from the makers of emulators, and please do not rate it low because you can't find ROM sites.

You can easily find roms for this on http://www.romreactor.net . It is a great site with over 10000 roms for every console!

I'VE CHANGED MY MIND! It was good before, but the new interface shell that Bannister uses on all his emulators now pipes the graphics through OpenGL, guess what happens if your graphics card is not powerful enough? Very heavy framerate drop. This app is UNUSABLE ON ANY G3 iMAC.

I Completely agree.. on my iMac G3 400 mhz i have used this before even reading this and even though im only using a 2 mb file usually less its super slow framerate.. laggy.. overall sucks for this computer..
