[9:00 AM] New Title Optimizes Your Mac For Any Emulator (VPC, Virtual Game Station, MacMAME, Etc.)
by Staff

AuctionMac Software has released ResourceFree 1.1. ResourceFree helps simplify the task of optimizing your system for use with resource demanding applications such as games and emulator packages. According to AuctionMac:

AuctionMac Software has released ResourceFree v1.1! ResourceFree stems from our popular 'VPC Helper' software for Connectix' Virtual PC. But while 'VPC Helper' is specifically designed for Virtual PC alone, ResourceFree offers more and can be used for virtually any emulator, game, or program. ResourceFree is especially well-suited for emulators... Such as other high-performance Windows, Super Nintendo, Sega, PlayStation, and console game/OS emulators.

ResourceFree allows you to easily customize a preferred resource-saving setup... Virtual Memory, extensions/control panels, quitting background apps & the Finder... All to save RAM and processor cycles. Without ResourceFree, you have to tediously set, remember, and reset these options (and you can't easily quit the Finder, which can slow up emulators). ResourceFree takes care of these frustrating maneuvers with safe, one-click configuration and reconfiguration! And ResourceFree can give new life to otherwise 'outdated' PPC and 68K Macs (even G3s)! Milk those frames-per-second for all they are worth... Run your emulator that much faster... Increase disk-performance and offset the drawbacks of Virtual Memory by saving more RAM by other methods! On 68K and 'slower' PPCs, the difference can be astonishing.

ResourceFree is available as shareware for US$12.95. You can find more information at the AuctionMac web site.
