Virtually unusable but coming along. Using Keyboard doesn't function as it should, android keyboard not working with games. Have to rely on virtual keyboard which then doesn't disappear usually resulting in game death and is difficult to locate (button 1 on V Joystick). Virtual joystick next to useless, buttons at top of screen meaning hand obscures gameplay. Work in progress ok and emulation working well but certainly no c64.emu which sadly no longer works. UI needs a complete overhaul but the core engine is certainly there.
Decent Runs near or enough full speed on my Nexus 7 including truedrive emulation, pal emulation, audio and fullscreen (with no frameskip) What i would like would be more accurate SID emulation (at the moment only possible to use FastSID) Any future progress on using the latest sid emulation (resid etc) in particular for emulating the 8bit sample playback method. I know this would slow the emulation down, but nice to have the option to select it when required
Runs Well...But Has Issues I want to rate this a little higher because it runs faster than some of the other emulators, but it has some issues that I can't seem to resolve. When using a bluetooth keyboard, there doesn't seem to be a way to map the joystick fire button, which makes most games useless. I've tried every setting I can find and have even consulted the FAQ, but I just can't seem to make it work. If this issue gets resolved, I will definitely improve the rating. Also, the UI is a little clumsy. I was constantly fighting against it to get things done, and it doesn't seem to save any changes you make when you exit, so you have to reset things every time you load it up. So, I like what I see, and I hope it can be greatly improved...but for now, it's not ready for prime-time.
Compared to other free emulators this is too difficult to even get running unless you are familiar with C64 ROMs and can install them in the correct location. Make it easy and I will bump up rating.
The best Definatly one of the best C64 emulators on android.. Once you buy game keyboard and spend some time setting up VICE configuration from the F12 menu you'll have a setup just as good as VICE on PC.. Scanlines and CRT emulation both work perfectly on my nexus 7 2013 once setup properly.
The best C64 emulator, but not perfect. Firstly, anyone who needs the ROMs can install the Pelya build of VICE (free) and point this version at /sdcard/app-data/org.viceteam.sdl/C64. Unlike the free port of VICE, the interface is nicely integrated with Android and it is possible to make the display full-screen with no border and keep the 4:3 aspect ratio. However, the resizing of the screen is arbitrary (unlike Frodo which can be constrained to double size) which results in a lot of aliasing. Turn on the "Smooth the video" option and there is some loss of video performance. I contacted the developer and received a really good response and a beta version to test, which did improve things. This is as good as it gets right now, so well worth the money.
-[new] add various screen resize options (Menu->Settings->Resize Option)
