It's time for an OSX emulator on CPC. I can't afford another computer.  8)

The poll is independent of which emulator you use, so although people are saying which emulator they prefer this is not counted and not important here.
Usually, peoples use what they prefer. :)
But sure, we can vote and shut-up!  :-\

Em-u-what? All the real deal here!


OSX is in desperate need of a CPC emulator that isn't rubbish though!

Yes indeed.
And of course a PPC binary along with the X86 would be bliss.

Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit here - old, but so is my PC, and it does what I want it to.  Mostly use MESS (since I work on it fairly regularly), but can use WinAPE via Wine if need be.

Ubuntu 12.04 here (and also some Mac OS X which is no longer supported thanks to Fuc^h^h^hApple) and I wonder which emulator does in fact work AND properly emulate sophisticated stuff like recent demos etc. I have tried some of the available emulators over the last couple of years (don't ask me for names, they escape me atm), but none of them was really useful, so I resorted to Arnold on the Mac, which works quite well imo.

So: Which emulators for the Linux platform (especially older Ubuntu and a non-state-of-the-art graphics card) can you recommend? (and sorry for capturing the thread!)

In which areas WinAPE is inaccurate? Does CPC++, MESS or SugarBox offer such debugging capabilities?


Unsure if anyone is addressing the "&BCD7 KL NEW FRAME FLY" problem. This is the one Sprites Alive (BASIC version) uses on Initiation for setting up an Event Block. The Event Block in Sprites Alive case Disables Interrupts, so on a machine with 128kb, it should crash when accessing the extra 64k. None of the Emulators (like Winape, WinCPC or CPCE) are doing this.


But I'm guessing it's a problem in the too hard basket?

Where do you see that? Win 8 hat 11 votes, Win 7 has 17 (actually 20, when including 32 bit).

Win7 64bit

Your question sounds a lot like my thoughts since about a year about starting an emulator on QT for a wide range of supported plattforms with a feature set like WinAPE.
Sadly I didn't have the time beyond some basic Z80 and GA emulation...

I have to change mine cos I got a new (second hand) PC for gamedev project reasons and it's got the 64bit Windows 7 rather than my laptop's 32bit version.  :)    I may use both for emulation purposes but this PC has the identical dual monitors set up which are 4:3 aspect ratio cos I like that for work and and retrogaming.

I asked the question because I have been working on a new version of arnold for a few years. I was interested to know the spread of OS used to know where to concentrate my efforts.

Yes I have a "top secret" fossil source control management (Fossil: Home) based repository of code. Some people know it's URL.

The emulator already has a wxwidgets based GUI, it uses SDL underneath. The GUI is well advanced and rivals winape's. The emu works fine on linux and windows and ok on mac.

I know Craig wants a mac version and it's close. ;)

Recently somebody asked if there was a version that ran on windows xp. So i wanted to know which OS do people have, how much time should I take to make it compatible with various devices.

Not on my Win7, but maybe it because I removed the update that added it before it pops-up  ;D

Yes, I got the Win10 free download icon. Does it just download a complete image or does it install on the fly?

I guess both, like the Win8 installer on Win7- downloads the image, prepares the system, reboots and proceeds to fuck your system up upgrade your system. It asks you at every step, I'd presume. Looking kind of forward to it after the 8 clusterfuck.

I'm still on Win7, but I'd like to download the image so that I can decide to install it later if the reviews are good.
