Software News   Software News : Teaser time: EMULA
   posted by Allanon on 14-Sep-2011 17:56:21 (2615 reads)
Emula stands for Emulator Launcher and aims to be an universal front end for, actually, 33 game systems and home computers.

Here is the current EMULA state, almost completed internally, it only needs some work on the configuration files to support all available emulators and I need to work on rom sets to support as much roms as I can with screenshots and basic informations.

Some key features:
- Simple GUI
- Scalable GUI usable even on small screen resolutions (like PAL for example or even lower)
- Click & Play: no need to configure anything!
- Download of missing emulators
- Download of free contents like homebrew & demo scene
- Favorites list for every supported system
- Support for 33 game systems and home computers
- Online updates
- Multiplatform (AROS, MorphOS, AmigaPPC, Amiga68k, MacOS, Linux, Windows)

At this stage Emula supports the following systems/roms:
GAMEBOY: 64 roms supported
GAMEBOY COLOR: 57 roms supported
GAMEBOY ADVANCE: 54 roms supported
ATARI LYNX: 121 roms supported
GAME GEAR: 203 roms supported
NEOGEO POCKET: 165 roms supported
WONDERSWAN: 114 roms supported
ATARI 5200: 59 roms supported
NES: 224 roms supported
SUPER NES: 301 roms supported
MASTER SYSTEM: 236 roms supported
MEGADRIVE: working at rom support right now...

And now the AROS video running on VirtualBox:
video on youtube

That's all for now

Looks very nice. This can for sure be something special. Great idea to do something like that. I hope the sales will be good.

I would love to use this launcher!
Almost all emulators in one "tool", nice!

Perhaps it one day can also launch 68k Amiga games with UAE and x86 DOS games with dosbox....

Oh man! You have not looked close the teaser :)
In the home computer section there is "Amiga" and "DOS" big buttons, so it's already planned :)

NICE! just what we need!, hopefully it will just be double click and it works and not insane amounts of stuff to do before starting like downloading roms, configuring everything and so on.

looking forward to this app/emu comp. :D

See my blog and collection website! .

Looks like some nice work Allanon. Congrats and good luck.

I just have one question, though. Why are there two pointers? Is that just the video recording software?
