ROMlaunch automatically associates your classic games’ ROM files with the appropriate emulator. Emulation of past gaming systems is a wonderful way to reminisce and play all those great games your owned and loved in your childhood on your brand new Mac. At the current moment there is a flurry of great emulators to choose from for the Mac, and most of them readily associate with their respective games making the games double-clickable in Finder. However, there are a select few emulators who do not inherit this capability.
ROMlaunch for Mac OS X consists of some down and dirty game launchers providing file type associations between these select few emulators and their respective games:
- ROMlaunch Arcade associates Arcade games with MAME OS X.
- ROMlaunch 32X associates Sega 32X games with Kega Fusion.
- ROMlaunch J2ME associates Java mobile games with mplayit.
- (ROMlaunch DOS associates DOS games with DOSBox (now obsoleted and relevant code donated to Alun Bestor and his awesome Boxer).)
Mac OS X 10.3 or later
