2.0.9.1
24 June 2019

Open Source game-emulation app (beta).

Overview

OpenEmu is about to change the world of video game emulation, one console at a time... For the first time, the 'It just works' philosophy now extends to open source video game emulation on the Mac. With OpenEmu, it is extremely easy to add, browse, organize and with a compatible gamepad, play those favorite games (ROMs) you already own.

Features
  • Library - One of the standout features of OpenEmu is how it organizes all your games into one unique, unified games library. Watch as backups of the games (ROMs) you already own are gracefully added to their appropriate library and box art is magically added. You can even create your own 'collections' mix and matched from different consoles.
  • Controls and Controllers - Any generic HID compliant USB or Bluetooth game controller should work with OpenEmu out of the box. OpenEmu now automatically maps controls for the following recognized devices in our database:
    • PlayStation Dualshock 3 and Dualshock 4
    • Wiimote and Wii U Pro
    • Xbox 360 and 3rd party (driver required)
    • Sega Saturn USB
    • PS3 Neo Geo Pad USB
    • Logitech series (Dual Action, Rumblepad 2, Gamepad F310/F510/F710)
    • Gravis GamePad Pro
    • Retrolink SNES and N64
    • RetroUSB SNES RetroPort and RetroPad
    • Retrode (SNES)
  • Cores - OpenEmu is modular, and thanks to the work of other great open source projects, it can emulate a wide variety of video game systems (we call them 'cores'). Currently, the following open source emulation projects are used to power OpenEmu:
    • CrabEmu
    • DeSmuME
    • FCEU
    • Gambatte
    • Genesis Plus GX
    • Higan
    • Mednafen
    • NeoPop
    • Nestopia
    • Picodrive
    • Snes9x
    • TwoMbit
    • VisualBoyAdvance

Probably the only emulator that doesn't work on Snow Leopard. No thanks.

Best of class, by far. Just wish MAME was a key feature. Some work, but the MAME world is flaky at best: http://choccyhobnob.com/articles/demystifying-mame-roms/ Author should lock into a version and focus on it for testing with community.

The Experimental version of OpenEmu has MAME support, which by and large even works very well.

The main problems I see there is a lack of support for analog controllers, which makes many games unplayable. (Unfortunately, the developers seem to be a bit stubborn when asked about adding analog controller support to the MAME core, so I wouldn't expect it to be added any time soon, if at all.)

You have to use the nightly build to play MAME games in experimental mode. The standard 2.x branch doesn't include MAME in the active emulators.
