According to its author, It is made in C instead of assembler, it is much more correct internally than the previous CPCE, everything is done by keyboard, there are no menus

This is cons, not strength 😁

I tried the emulator with phX demo. Pretty encouraging ! Only the tunnel part (shown before Freddy) showed some visible artefacts. Plus FDC loading that slowed down audio, too. But all the rest was pretty accurate!

Ok, sounds it's quick then. Does it have a turbo mode?

Drag'n drop and auto start with a dsk file on my desktop shortcut.

Really quick to start a downloaded file.

Nice!  :)


the tapes are always started with turbo mode ;


it's 100% compatible with all games released on tape. Even the hardest schemes works with it. (MBC, Gremlin loader 1,2,3 for ex.).


I have tested CNGSOFT new emulator (i'm the alpha tester) against 1300 original CPC games, including 1000 games in their tapes versions.

20190325 -- fourth public release. Onscreen indicators (hide them with -O); fixed bugs in ZXSEC that slowed emulation down when the frameskip wasn't zero, and another bug in audio recording on WAV files.

* 20190419 -- eighth public release. Added options for image and sound interpolation; tape automatically rewinds itself when it reaches the end (à la FUSE); fixed a bug in TZX files that store 0 instead of 8 in the "used bits" field, another bug in CUSTOM INFO blocks in TZX files, and another one when ZXSEC loads a 48K SNA file in Plus3 mode (users should manually switch to a safe model beforehand anyway). INI files now remember the names of the last used files.

* 20190430 -- ninth public release. Softer B/W Spectrum palette; fixed bug in FDC sector size calculation if GAP datas are stored (Loriciels' discs); added simple memory contention to ZXSEC ("Amaurote", "Black Lamp", "Puzznic", "Sly Spy", "Zub"...).

Hello,
i just tried your latest version, but i haven't found how disable the console window.

Is a way to hide the console or you still need it for debugging ?

Very nice. I use CPCE a lot for development in Linux because is fast to start (and it works fine with WINE, better than WinAPE).

I see CPCEC doesn't do "proper" fullscreen and only maximizes the window. Other than that, I can see it replacing CPCE for my dev pipeline.
