N64 Emulator for Mac – SixtyForce Emulates Nintendo 64 with Gamepad Support
The Nintendo 64 was another great console that had many great games, and you can relive many of the gaming experiences of the N64 by getting an emulator for Mac OS X.
The N64 Emulator I use in Mac OS X is called SixtyForce, it opens and plays N64 ROM’s quite well and allows you to run the games at full screen or in windowed mode, customize your controls to use either a keyboard or USB gamepad, and more. Sound good, and you’re a fan of Nintendo 64? Then check it out yourself.
You can download SixtyForce for free at sixtyforce.com but you’ll have to get game ROM files elsewhere.
SixtyForce isn’t as full featured as some of the other emulators out there in the Windows world, but as far as I know it’s the best option for emulating the Nintendo 64 console natively in Mac OS X.
SixtyForce works best with an external controller, though keyboard support is included it’s just not as a good of an experience for gaming, but you probably already guessed that. Using a USB or Bluetooth controller works well enough, just be sure it has enough button options and configure it in the settings to work with 64orce.
Do you love emulators too? In case you didn’t notice, we’re pretty big fans of emulators and the older game consoles around here. Here’s some of the other ones we’ve covered in the past:
PS2 Emulator for Mac – PCSX2 is the best PS2 emulator for Mac OS X that I’ve seen so far, it’s not perfect but it works.
Nintendo DS Emulator – Play Nintendo DS games in Mac OS X. Biggest downside is that it doesn’t support full-screen mode (yet at least).
SNES Emulator for Mac OS – SNES is my favorite console of all time, and SNES9x is arguably the best emulator for Mac OS X ever.
There are others out there as well, be sure to let us know in the comments if you have a favorite emulator or console that runs particularly well in OS X.
