Frequently asked questions about sixtyforce:

Where can I download game cartridges?

I can't tell you how to get cartridges that are commercial games. There are devices you can use to do it legally, but the laws are different depending on where you live and I don't want to give anyone bad advice. There are plenty of other places on the internet that can help you figure out how to acquire cartridges legally.

How can I make sixtyforce run faster?

sixtyforce will run its best if you have no other applications running while using it. Anything you leave open will use your computer's resources. (For example: Even an empty Safari window open in the background will slow sixtyforce down.)

Time Machine is also notorious for slowing your computer down while it is backing up. If you use Time Machine, enable the Time Machine menu in the menu bar and you can stop any backup that starts while using sixtyforce.

Why do things sound wrong?

There are two things that may affect sound:

1) Compatibility. sixtyforce isn't 100% compatible with all games yet. Check the compatibility list to see if a game is known to have sound issues.

2) Skipping. You will hear pops and skips if the emulation's timing is off. This can happen if sixtyforce is running too quickly or too slowly. Make sure 'Enable Speed Limiter' is selected in the 'Options' menu to prevent it from running too quicky. Quit all other applications while running sixtyforce if it is running too slowly.

If neither of these help, either your machine is too slow for sixtyforce or there is a bug with the emulation. Both of these are being worked on!

Why doesn't [fill in the blank] work?

Emulation is tricky business. If a specific game isn't working, it's likely because there's a glitch in the emulation. Every release of sixtyforce has improved compatibility, so make sure you are using the latest version.

Note: If your game cartridge has been patched or modified in any way, this may prevent it from working in sixtyforce. You may also want to check the compatibility list to see if there are any notes on how to get a specific game working.
