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.

Like most software it gets updated from time to time and his emulators aren't updated so often you would need an update program. Like he said it would just cost him a lot of dead traffic. This software is released as freeware so if you don't like it, don't download it and quit blaming the devs cause you don't like their free work.

Couldn't agree more with the other reply - Emulators are rarely updated, so there is no need for automatic updates

Besides, I hate when people complain about lack of support for free software. Why should he pay for dead traffic when you get his software for free?

The fact alone that you rate stability, value, features and ease of use by one star each shows that you don't really care for the software nor the brilliant MacUpdate site for that matter, as you only see it fit for crying about a polite reply from a developer, who actually takes time to reply you without gaining any profit whatsoever. As far as I'm concerned, you're nothing but a spoiled child

Uh, are you both high? Emulator Enhancer is NOT free - it's $30. Yes, you don't need it to use the emulators, but if you've paid the fee to restore functionality that was REMOVED from the open source Windows versions that Bannister ports over to Mac, the least you could expect is some decent update support.

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.

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!!!

That web site's not legal, it's selling copyrighted roms...

Copyrighted ROMS????

NEVER! You're kidding me!!!

And here's me thinking that Bannister makes his money selling apps to people who have a garage-full of legacy consoles and thousands of games!

Some people actually do have old gameboys, sega genesises and busted commodores sitting around in their basement with a ton of physical cartridges/disks present...
