Emufront v1.1.2

Emufront is an emulation launcher using just a gamepad for the Mac. (It assumes you've already set up your emulators and games). It works together with your emulators, so tries to use 0.3% of your processor in the background.

About - Short version

Emufront allows you to sit on your sofa, with your gamepad in hand, and control your mac to launch emulators and games.

About - Longer version

As well as allowing you to launch your emulators and browse your games, Emufront works best if you can just use a single button on your gamepad to launch it. Due to limitations in Mac OS X, this isn't easy. There is a program that can launch applications with a single keypress though - I'd recommend using the excellent Keyboard Maestro. (There's even versions for Mac OS X 10.0, and newer versions that support Mac OS X 10.13)


Download 32bit version EmuFront.1.1.2.x32.zip (which is for Mac OS X 10.4.11 and above). Download 64bit version EmuFront.1.1.2.x64.zip which will work at full speed on 64bit macs, requires Mac OS X 10.7 or newer.


Emufront is free.
