Thanks to some dedicated work by qwertymodo, Snes9x 1.55 now has MSU-1 support, including the MSU-1 distribution pack. The MSU-1 is an SNES expansion chip invented by byuu (author of higan), you can find some more information about it here. LuigiBlood also did some work on increasing the BS-X Satellaview support.
Tmkk kindly provided a macOS build, so mac users should finally be able to upgrade.
Other than that there are some game fixes and housekeeping work.

Nintaco is a cycle-accurate Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) / Famicom emulator and NES Sound Format (NSF) player written in Java, ostensibly making it cross-platform. It supports the vast majority of games including those for the Famicom Disk System (FDS), Dendy and Vs. UniSystem along with a plethora of peripherals. It tracks play history, enabling the player to rewind time to undo mistakes, and to watch, export, edit and resume play at any point in the past. It supports netplay, save states, video and audio recording, video filters, screenshots, cheat codes, a debugger and a TAS editor. It can be controlled programmatically via an API. It provides automatic capturing of sprites and level maps. It even simulates R.O.B., the Robotic Operating Buddy.

Ootake is a PC Engine emulator for Windows. Ootake is the most frequently updated PC Engine emulator available for windows, and Ootake is also one of the more complete. Also, Ootake is FREE unlike Magic Engine.
Ootake v2.86 changelog:
- "Configure Open Button" was added to "Input-> Configure" menu. You can
change the shortcut key for opening the game file ([O] key and [P] key) to
- "Configure" was added to the top of the "Input" menu, and the menu was
tidied up. * However, this is still complicated. Although it may become
next year, I will make a special form for controller setting.
- "Adjust Old CD-ROM2 Speed (Super Darius)" added to "Setting-> Improve"
menu. When this is checked, in "Super Darius", at the game start and the
boss appearance etc., the CD access time is adjusted to the wait time
equivalent to that of the first (old white machine) CD-ROM2 System. When
this check is removed, the wait time will be as short as PC Engine Duo (
- When a game for ARCADE Card is played, if Resume-Mode ("File-> Set Resume"
menu) is set, if "CD-ROM-> Play with Non ARCADE Card" menu is executed,
the bug that the game stopped (occurred from v2.85) was fixed.
* I think that this is a rare case, but if this trouble makes it
impossible to continue the game, please play the continuation from state
save data. Or, please reset using [F1] key, load from backup RAM (save
data in the game) and continue the game.
- Additionally, a detailed part has been improved and corrected.
+ Thank you very much for your reporting and encouragement. In this version,
there are few changes and the source change is slight. For a while (at
least for the Japanese autumn horse racing season), I will take a break.
I am pleased if this v2.86 becomes a stable version. But, if urgent
trouble or things worked on the previous version did not work, I will fix
it soon and update it.
+ I began Twitter. (Japanese language & a little English language)
http://twitter.com/kitao_n * The happiness of the game is the world human race commonness. It longs for
* I think that it cannot do improvement & correction of the above-mentioned
if there are many neither operation report nor defect report. Thank you
really for you who reported.

RockNES v5.54 Changelog:
- Improved Famicom Disk System PPU IRQ timing (thanks Sour).
- Fixed "Skip Disk System license screen" option, working ok.
- Fixed scanlines in NSF mode (while playing a tune & drawing circles).
- Fixed version number in the file properties.
- Minor fixes and improvements./quote]
MAME stands for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator. When used in conjunction with images of the original arcade game's ROM and disk data, MAME attempts to reproduce that game as faithfully as possible on a more modern general-purpose computer. MAME can currently emulate several thousand different classic arcade video games from the late 1970s through the modern era.
