OpenEmu – How To Run Emulators on a Mac N64 PSP SNES NES And More!

hey what's going on guys is ETA prime back here again today I wanted to show you how to emulate retro games on your Mac so I'm using an iMac here this is a newer iMac it's got the 3.4 gigahertz eye 5 8 gigabytes of ddr4 radeon pro 5 64 gigabyte i recently bought this for video editing they're very overpriced for the hardware you're kidding but you can't beat Final Cut Pro at least I can't find anything else that I like better it's the main reason I bought it but I also wanted to show some of the Mac users that watch my channel how to emulate retro games on their Mac or MacBook Pro or MacBook Air now all of this is really gonna be based on what system you have they made a ton of different hardware revisions to each MacBook MacBook Air but most of them should be able to run SNES NES NeoGeo some of them might struggle to run PSP it really depends on your cpu GPU combo the only way you can tell is try it out so let's get started for emulating retro games on a Mac there are a few different applications you can use you can always use retroarch I love it I use it on my Windows machine all the time but since I'm on a Mac open emu is available this is in my opinion the best emulator front-end for Mac super easy to use and it just works so we're going to go ahead and download open emu you can download now right here or we can get the development build or the experimental build and that's what I'm going to be downloading all right mines finish downloading I can show in folder it's gonna be in my downloads double click it's gonna extract it and we can place it either in our Applications folder or right on the desktop go ahead and close this down and we're gonna run open emu double click if you get a warning about permissions you might have to go to your system preferences security click on this little lock here and you'll have to allow that application that's just how it is with a Mac so here we are with open emu as you can see there are a ton of systems to use here wonderswan Virtual Boy the Vectrex turbo graphic CD turbo graphics 16 PSP PlayStation Super Nintendo lots of emulators in here to use the next thing you're gonna need are some games I have a folder on my desktop called roms inside of here I have some biases NeoGeo BIOS and I have some PlayStation 1 biases I also have some games in 64 NeoGeo ps1 SNES PSP now I can't tell you exactly where to get these games but if you do a quick Google search you can find anything you need just type in the system you want the games for let's say in 64 roms right in the Google search bar you can find everything next you'll need a controller unless you want to use your keyboard I suggest getting a controller I'm using a ps4 Bluetooth controller I've also tested it with 8-bit Oh controllers and it works fine turn my controller on I'm just gonna sync it up well it automatically synced up I already had it set up here bluetooth now we can import some games into open EMU first one I'm going to do is Super Nintendo really easy system no biases are required find your games highlight them drag them and drop them right into open EMU it's gonna import them and download your box are automatically now we need to set up a controller for SNES emulation we're gonna go up to open emu preferences controls drop down menu here we're gonna find super nintendo or SNES it's gonna give us a nice visual of the controller itself i'm just gonna click on the d-pad i'm gonna press up on my d-pad select start so be my a button B button X button Y button l1 r1 now our SNES controller setup you can go through and map each one if you'd like to I usually do it when I'm about to play a game this will save so now we can get into SNES and start playing I'm gonna go with Joe and Mac double click I'm gonna go full screen with it now down here there's a little options button we have some filters I have mine set to CRT as you can see curves it a little bit you can go to HQ 4x if you'd like to but I do like the CRT logo we can also change the core in SNES not all emulators have other cores I'm using snes9x but heigen is going to be more accurate it's gonna be more demanding on your system also we can also edit game controls I'm just going to start a game here it runs really good SNES will probably run on any Mac we're gonna close out now I'm gonna go over bios's with you because the PlayStation 1 requires bios's you can always view Gaiden browser read through this you'll find out everything you need to know about open EMU but for this video we're gonna do it real quick there's an easy way to find out what BIOS is you need we're gonna go up to open emu preferences system files now it showed you exactly what BIOS you need for what system so the Atari 5200 BIOS is named 5200 ROM it's two kilobyte search Google you'll find it you're just gonna drag it and drop it I already have my PlayStation 1 bias is installed but I'm gonna go ahead and do it again for you we're gonna go to PlayStation 1 I'm gonna find my biases take those three here drag them and drop them now I want to import some games so I'll grab my PlayStation 1 games drag them and drop them there's a little game scanner down here it's going to download all the boxart for us and import our games and we're now ready to play PlayStation 1 so it's really easy to set up open EMU one of the best front-ends that I've ever seen for Mac retroarch is also really good but I prefer using this there are a lot more settings in retroarch but the ease of use with open emu just gets me will go ahead and import one more system and that's going to be in 64 so I'll grab my games this does not require a BIOS drag them and drop them and I'll show you a little bit of gameplay for double-oh-seven at least I need to set up my controller I can do that from here edit game controls it's gonna automatically choose the n64 controller and I'm going to map it here now I have my n64 controller set up we can play some double-oh-seven I'll fast forward this runs really smooth on my system we'll just go ahead and exit and that's it for this video guys I really appreciate you watching I just wanted to share the Mac users out there that there is an option now use launch box on my Windows PC and I prefer using my windows for inhalation but if you only have a Mac you can definitely use this if you guys have any questions let me know in the comments below and like always thanks for watching
