EMUCenter 0.5: playing games with Windows Media Center
by Brad Linder, posted Oct 30th 2007 2:58PM
Last time we checked in on Steven Harding's EMUCenter application for Windows Vista Media Center, it was still pretty rough around the edges. But EMUCenter 0.5 seems like a pretty polished interface for launching all of your old school games on a Windows Media Center machine.
The plugin lets launch emulators such as MAME and KEGA using Media Center's 10-foot interface. You'll need to figure out how to get the games on your own. Here are a few of the updates in the latest version:
- Now you can close your emulator from EMUCenter. Previously you could only launch applications.
- Faster, smoother movement between games
- Choose different appearance for different games or systems
- Search for games by name
- MAME automatic update now downloads in-game art
