Update emulator

This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.

You will need to manually update the app by removing the old version and installing the new version on the download section.

All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
