Don't waste your time with this. Bannister is a bottom-feeder. He removes functionality from free software and then charges money to put it back in. Get NekoLauncher Mednafen. It's an OSX multisystem emulator that is 100% free and infinitely superior to anything Bannister has scummed up.

Slightly overpriced, but not so much so as to be outrageous. Worth the money just for the added graphics modes alone.

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.

All of Richard's emulators are full usable without EE. Some great new additions have been made to EE2 (such as icon creation) and I gladly paid my registration long ago (I was really surprised that I got a free upgrade). 95% of the work he has done on about 25 emulators is free of charge. EE simply adds some useful additions to all of these such as joystick support (something which can be added with other programs but is much easier using EE) and video filters.

Updated to the universal binary of EE fine. (Just rember not to try and use the coupon code as a serial, instead use it to register for a new serial)! Once again this is great addition to all of the emulators Richard has worked on. $25 to support RB is not to much to ask. RB has done a tremendous amount of work for the Emu scene on the mac. Support him, you ungrateful brats!

It is very annoying that you have to keep downloading new updates constantly because the past version is one month old. I contacted the author on this matter and they simply gave me the run around with much justification. How about automatic updates through the application? Ridiculous.

this is ridiculous, and the main reason i hate using an apple == everyone is trying to sucker you out of $20 for the same thing you get for free on a pc. i'll be happy when apple goes to intel and promptly out of business. i think i'd rather have to deal with malware and viruses on a pc than have to pay $20 to play a game of solitaire (or use a joystick) in peace. pretty cute of this bannister guy to "add" a bunch of "features" to his ports with a single module and then charge for it. there must be some tight coding going on too, i can almost look at flash and emulate a 20 year old console at the same time.

RB is a god ! I've *just* registered for EE and it's made my retro games so much better. RB is making some fantastic emulators also - they are all free 4u to use and charging for EE is a great way to enjoy his work at its max. Less than 20 ukpounds too. Thank you!!!

Patrick: You HAVE heard of PD/homebrew software, right? There are those who ONLY play homebrew on their emulators, and it's fully legal. Take a look at http://www.pdroms.de/ , for example.

what ever you do dont use this guys stuff he is a con i think. In the world of emulation your using it for an illegal reason majority of the time and i think a man who charges you to have support which open source ones are now implementing is complete poppy cock when it comes to the emulation of game consoles you know its only for coppied roms and who in there right minds owns all the roms the have. I know no one who donwloads roms who owns all of them or ever owned them DO NOT SUPPORT THIS MAN'S CON SUPPORT OPEN SOURCE & FREE EMULATORS FOR CONSOLE GAME SYSTEMS.

I am wondering why when just the shareware version of Emulator enhancer is installed I am unable to configure a game controller to work with it. When I try to set a kep which is unmapped it just makes my G3 800 mhz Ibook freeze and think for a few minutes. How are you supposed to be able to set the gamecontroller buttons? I have no problem purchasing this product but before I do I want to ensure it will work as it is advertised.

i love people that try to charge you to play rom games it really amazes me people just sit for this kind of bull crap. Support real communites and not money grubbing ideots who just want to make money off people who are just playing ripped/pirated games hey i play roms too and i know like the majority of people out there you dont own a single lick of those games so why should you pay for the software then too? just to emulate it ... support the open source emultors instead at least they contribute back to the community by giving out the source code of what they write

Ohh, one more thing, emulators arn't for playing pirated games, they are for playing backup copys of games you legally own, of course. Abandonware (NES, SNES, Gen) is ok as well.... :-)

Uhhh yea.... So your complaining becuase you have to pay $25 to play PIRATED software....rightt..... The emulators are free you know? This is just an extra package that enhances the emulators. You keep talking trash and he may just stop making them altogether... He puts A LOT of time into doing this, he doesn't have to, but he does because its somthing he enjoys, and when self proclaimed gods like yourself start bashing him, it becomes not fun. He doesn't owe you a thing, if you don't like it, go out and buy a system and the real carts..... Don't bother writing back trying to rationalize it, I'm right, your wrong, so deal with it.... Now that my rant is over, Great work Richard! As a former REGISTERED Blitter user I'm happy to finaly see you dropping classic support and focusing on getting the speed of your already great packages up in X.

Bannister's new system for emulator interface is terribly slow if you don't have a kickass video chip. GenesisPlus, for example, used to run at nearly full framerate on my G3 iMac, but the new version falls to half, even a third of what it used to be... KEEP THE OLD VERSIONS!!!

This is great software! I would love it if it added a few rom hacking features like showing the sprite locations in the RAM or showing the current palette (this would be great for RockNES!) Thanks! -Totakeke

25$??? Are you crazy? Is this because you can't make people people pay for your open-source emulators that you are looking for a way to get money in other ways? Sheesh, I'm SO GLAD your are not implicated in MacMame...
