This is one of the better C64 emulators on Play Store just now. Plenty of options for tweaking to get those awkward games running. It would be great to see a more customisable control screen with both joystick and keyboard visible at the same time or a way to have customised buttons onscreen as with the magicDOS app. And finally, although c64 files are small they quickly add up and can occupy a lot of memory. How about Dropbox support for files? Oh and if it could run .prg files that'd be great.
Good Got it to work finally. Quite a hassle to download and install additional files. I think the problem was that the unzip program puts the c64.emu in an extra folder, so c64.emu/c64.emu/c64 drives c128 etc. I copied the second c64.emu folder and put that in the root menu of the internal storage. After that move I got it to work. Maybe there are other solutions, post them in the app review, to help others. Ciao
Good once it's working You have to download the C64 support files zip file after installing. A bit of a pain but 5***** for the emulator because once it's running it's faultless. I emailed the Dev and got a quick reply. Now I can play Monty Mole and Fort Apocalypse on my mobile. Happy days.
Invest the time to learn how to use it and this emulator works well. However, save states don`t work properly - giving an I/O error if you use tape (.tap) files. Otherwise, it`s not bad although it could do with an update to a more recent version of the Vice source.
Great but no idea how to get on screen keyboard How do you get an on screen keyboard? I set the most common keys onto my game pad but there are always other keys needed at times, so I'm just sticking to VICE on my laptop at the moment . I see people mentioning a keyboard here but I cannot figure out how to get it to display!
Compared to devs other emus, this is a pain to get running, as evidenced by almost everybody having trouble, Even following web site instructions. When you pay money for an app you expect it to work and not have to waste time figuring it out on web sites. this app is unfinished. Can t understand why so many having trouble give good feedback! Got it running and its OK. Recently tried loading on another tablet and again a pain in the arse, I've wasted so much time on this app!
