...it has support for the ColecoVision's optional controllers, including the steering wheel, the trackball, and the Super Action Controller... I can't think of another CV emulator that offers that functionality.

All I want is an Adam emulator for Win XP that doesn't go full screen (so annoying when emulators force that!)
I want to play the enhanced Adam games from the Coleco like DK and Buck Rogers but AdamEm is pure shit for this day and age.
Does this emulator let me play Adam specific games? Is it easier to set up than that absolute mess of an emulator called M.E.S.S.?

VirtualADAM v1.03 (an all inclusive package for ADAM emulation that comes with an installer, DOSbox, ADAMem and a tremendous Frontend) is indeed the way to go as far as ADAM emulation. The one drawback, however, is the inability to swap Disk or DDP images on the fly (without exiting the emulator) because of an unfixable conflict with the included and required DOSbox emulator. For most persons needs, this will not be an issue or problem that you will run into... so go with this one especially if you are running Windows XP or newer.

Thanks for the clarification Joe. I remember we had a lengthy discussion about this a couple years ago and had forgotten all the details. I haven't heard anything from Steve in a while so it doesn't look likely that a new emulator will ever be coming from him anytime soon if at all. Looks like we'll just have to keep all our old computers (ADAMs and PCs) well maintained to insure that we'll always have access to our favorite computer via emulation or the real thing.

I've been working with Geoff Oltmans and Doug Slopsema on an SDL version of AdamEm, that runs windowed on Windows, MacOS and Linux. Geoff did most of the work, so it is published on his site:
Now I guess Geoff assumed that you'd just know how to use AdamEm from the commandline already, so there is a thread talking about the lack of documentation included here:
Somewhere way down on my todo list is to make a nice user interface like AdamEmMam or VirtualAdam to make passing in the configuration options easier. Geoff is actually working on a native OS X GUI for that, but I don't know how far along he really is.

Well, that settles that.
I've tested the Bee emulator, I've played with a lot of settings and it can only run games that are in its database.
So I could not play my own games developments
Besides it's incredibly slow...

So far, so good. Anything new to report? I've *really* been looking forward to a decent Mac Adam emulator.
I've got big feet, good for kicking people in the pants.
