CrocoDS on macOS
« on: 20:34, 02 October 16 »

Hi
I'm working on a new open source emulator for macOS: crocoDS.

Download it from http://www.kyuran.be/blog/tag/cpc/

At first, CrocoDS was created for the Nintendo DS and was based on pc-cpc by @demoniak.
A lot of change (optimization) was made on the original emulator to be able to run it on the small device of Nintendo.
A few years ago, I released it on GitHub as an iPad version.
Now, it's time for the macOS.

With this version, I want to make the best emulator available on macOS. Not only with the best compatibility (it's far to be the case actually) but with many features not seen in any other emulator. Yes, I'm a crazy boy :doh: .

Actually, it have
- automatic resize of the main screen (as seen on the nintendo ds)
- copy paste to the CPC (for fast insert of basic code)
- light pen support
- integrated menu (with the help of @Kukulcan for the icons)
- tabbed window
- ssh terminal (via fake emulation but on the real cpc screen - I'm also a sys-admin 8) )

In the future:
- it will integrate a development environnement (like in pico8 but to develop real cpc games)
- integrated norton commander like (to manage .dsk)
...

I'll need help: beta tester are welcome.

Here is already a WIP:

That's nice!

Emulators are lagging a lot on non-windows platforms so this comes as a breathe of fresh air.

If you need testers, I offer myself for the task.

Very first version (alpha 0.1).
The 1.0 version will be a lot better :)
