Retrogaming

Where’s the old hardware?

Just to be clear, when I say “retrogaming,” I am more exactly referencing emulation, particularly using OpenEMU on Mac OS X, although I admit to a fascination with the RetroPi project. I do have a love of old actual hardware, too… but in my mind’s closet, old hardware is associated with Atari, because that was my favorite and it makes up the vast majority of my old hardware. Long story short, on jjewell.com, writing about emulators is retrogaming; writing about old hardware, regardless of brand, is Atari. Thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.

Emulation on Mac OS X

Two great software projects are the core of my emulation habit, OpenEmu and Atari800MacX.

Some of the better ROM library resources I’ve found include CoolROM.com, PlanetEmu.net, and of course Archive.org.
