Configuration and launch
The software solution features support for a considerable number of gaming systems, including SNES, Game Boy Advance, Mega CD, Neo Geo Pocket Color, and others. You can also create separate profiles for each individual device.
Moreover, it is possible to pick preferred audio and video drivers, as well as tweak graphics parameters. The tool provides the option to launch games in both a separate window and full screen mode. Keyboard controls and third-party input controllers are supported.
