 Today, Emulators, Inc. is known mostly as a developer of Macintosh emulators for Windows. ​ The company'​s first release of a Mac emulator for that platform was Gemulator 98 (released in late 1997), which included a classic Macintosh emulation (a 68000 processor) along with its familiar Atari emulation. Unlike current releases of Gemulator, this version required that a ROM card be installed on the host machine. Today, Emulators, Inc. is known mostly as a developer of Macintosh emulators for Windows. ​ The company'​s first release of a Mac emulator for that platform was Gemulator 98 (released in late 1997), which included a classic Macintosh emulation (a 68000 processor) along with its familiar Atari emulation.

-Gemulator PRO (released in early 1999) emulated up to a 68040 Macintosh in Windows. ​ At that time the emulator (with the required ROM card) retailed online for $149.95. ​ To have an actual ROM BIOS installed on the card cost extra - from $20 bucks for a 128K 68000 ROM from a black and white Macintosh Plus to $150 for a ROM from a color Macintosh IIci.+Gemulator PRO (released in early 1999) emulated up to a 68040 Macintosh in Windows. ​ At that time the emulator (with the required ROM card) retailed online for $149.95. ​ To have an actual ROM BIOS installed on the card cost extra - from $20 for a 128K 68000 ROM from a black and white Macintosh Plus to $150 for a ROM from a color Macintosh IIci.
  
 Gemulator PRO was soon superseded by Gemulator 99, a CD-ROM package that included both Gemulator PRO and [[SoftMac]],​ a version of Gemulator'​s Macintosh emulation component that did not require the use of a ROM board. ​ The two emulators would later split into separate retail products. ​ Gemulator, like SoftMac, later dropped the requirement of a ROM board. Gemulator PRO was soon superseded by Gemulator 99, a CD-ROM package that included both Gemulator PRO and [[SoftMac]],​ a version of Gemulator'​s Macintosh emulation component that did not require the use of a ROM board. ​ The two emulators would later split into separate retail products. ​ Gemulator, like SoftMac, later dropped the requirement of a ROM board.
