your amstrad news source in spanish language : https://auamstrad.es

Gryzor

Such a pity CrocoDS runs on everything out there except Android... :(

Thanks.
I now have a real 464, so no need of an emulator now.
:D

Isn't there a CrocoDS port on libretro ?


Apparently yes : https://docs.libretro.com/library/crocods/


Retroarch is available on Android
Brain Radioactivity

Gryzor

Yes it is and yes it works IIRC from my experiments with my Nvidia Shield TV. However messing with Retroarch is not the simplest thing and it doesn't quite work on a phone, I feel... :(

Emu

CPCemu has been released for Android, recently. Please check it out: https://cpc-emu.org/

Unfortunately, I have only one Android device to test on, so I would be happy if you could give me some comments on what works and what not.

Gryzor

Hmm, can't test in depth right now, but the interface needs lots of work to be usable on a touch screen, especially of small size... Already stuck in the menu because I can't hit ESC.

Emu

You shouldn't need ESC anywhere. To close the main menu, tap somewhere off the buttons. To close one of the windows, use the close icon near the upper left corner or tap into the window. However, the latter may execute a function you tapped on.


I can imagine it's difficult on small displays. You need a pen, I think. I tested on a 12" Galaxy tab. Using CPCemu with fingers was no problem.


Gryzor

Indeed, it may be ok on a 12" screen (even without stylus), but on an average 6" screen it doesn't make much sense... I like the emulator and the emulation engine may be great indeed, but it needs someone to build a proper touch UI around it :)
