I am having trouble finding any emulators that work with 10.4, all of the ones I want (NES, SNES, Genesis) need 10.5 or ClassicOS.
CRTGAMER any ideas on what emulators to use or what to do next?


You can enable classic support for os9 applications with this

Sadly my 10.4 iMac G3 is a state away so I cant test them for you. Granted it is currently setup to boot into linux, auto run ScummVM, and then load Fate of Atlantis. I guess I could turn it into a Thinclient.

That is awesome. These older versions may work. I'll let you know if they do.

I managed to bring my PowerBook G3 Pismo back to life last week and, after much debate, decided to turn it into an emulation machine. I'm glad I looked in here because I was getting no where with trying to find good emulators to run on an old PPC Mac. The beauty of this PowerBook is that it has a VGA connector (no adaptor needed) and can run in closed lid mode - So I can easily hook it up to my TV but I can also take it with me on the road if I want (It can hold two batteries if I take out the DVD drive).

The thing I have to figure out now is finding a good controller to use. I tried to set up a PS3 controller via USB Overdrive and it recognized a controller was there but I couldn't get it to accept any inputs. Any recommendations?
