It's been in beta for what seems an eternity, but the pace of development seems to be picking up of late and the most recent builds have brought some major updates, including cloud syncing and NES support. Now Delta, the successor app to GBA4iOS, has reached Beta 8.
Riley Testut, developer of popular console emulator Delta for iOS (formerly GBA4iOS), has cooked up a little side project which will keep his fans occupied while we wait for Delta's full release.
Dubbed Delta Lite, the project is a working Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) emulator which runs inside Swift Playgrounds, Apple's own Swift development app for iOS.
You may have heard Sebastien and I discussing Delta on Let's Talk Jailbreak, mentioning that more frequent updates had been promised with the last beta, and speculating on whether we would see anything big coming soon to the emulator. Perhaps developer Riley Testut heard us, but more likely an instance of pure dumb luck has meant that Delta Beta 4 was released to press testers, along with some exciting news.
When the original Apple Macintosh system hit the market 33 years ago in 1984, it ignited the personal computer revolution with its built-in black-and-white CRT screen measuring just nine inches diagonally and a mouse-driven graphical user interface. Would you like to try out for yourself how the future of home computing looked like back then? Look no further than Internet Archive's latest in-browser emulation of the classic Macintosh hardware.
After a considerable hiatus, Riley Testut has returned today with a third beta of his emulator application for iOS, Delta.
A relatively small changelog accompanies this update to the gaming application, a successor to the ever-popular GBA4iOS, and almost three months separate it from the previous release, Beta 2.
Riley Testut's new project Delta, the retro game console emulator, continued its early phase testing yesterday, with the release of a second build for those on its closed beta testing program. According to Testut, healthy feedback from the testers resulted in a slew of bugs and improvement suggestions reported from the first beta, and this second iteration consequently comes with a handy list of fixes and additions.
Today saw the start of the beta program for the long-awaited iOS emulator from developer Riley Testut, Delta. Capable of emulating a wide range of vintage game consoles, this spiritual successor to GBA4iOS boasts a broader feature-set and a polished UI. We managed to get one of the prized places on the Delta beta testing program, and can give you an early glimpse of how it's shaping up.
Developer Riley Testut, the brains behind a Game Boy emulator for iOS called GBA4iOS, said on Twitter yesterday that he is now focusing his energies on a brand new software designed to emulate the hardware of popular SNES, Game Boy and Nintendo 64 consoles. He's calling it Delta and it's launching this December in beta although a teaser website does not reveal if this will be an app that you'll be able to sideload onto an iOS device without jailbreaking.
Emulators are a way to play your favorite childhood games on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad without carrying the game disks or cartridges and game consoles around with you. Instead, they sideload the games on your device as a piece of software, and they're given controls that are adapted for the touch screen.
In this tutorial, we'll be showing you a method that still works to this day for getting emulators on your iOS device, and the best part is, you don't even have to be jailbroken to do any of it.
Kevin Smith, the developer behind the MAME emulator that allows you to run classic Nintendo and Sega games, as well as play arcade games on your fourth-generation Apple TV, is back with another cool software: an unofficial client that can stream Steam games from a Windows PC to Apple's new box.
The solution takes advantage of an iOS edition of Moonlight, an open source implementation of Nvidia's GameStream technology used by its Shield console.
Moonlight technology makes it possible to stream the full collection of Steam games from a PC to the new Apple TV without needing to run on the Apple TV hardware.
Along with being able to play classic Nintendo and Sega games on your Apple TV, you can also play classic arcade titles. Doing so is made possible by a port of MAME, which stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. Unfortunately there isn't yet a GitHub page setup for the MAME tvOS port, but the same developer that created the MAME emulator that we showed you a while back has made the full Xcode project available for download.
I've been playing Super Mario World on my Apple TV, and I absolutely love it. I'm able to do this by loading an emulator called Provenance on my Apple TV. You won't find Provenance in the App Store, but Apple has given us the ability to sideload apps ourselves, and Provenance is one such app that can be sideloaded.
In this tutorial, I'll show you how to sideload Provenance, and how to start playing old Nintendo and Sega Classics on your Apple TV, including the NES, SNES, GBA, Genesis, Game Gear, and more. If you like classic games, then you simply don't want to miss this.
