As of today, I'm proud to announce that CPCBox has passed all Zexall tests successfully! 8)

I've personally tested several CPC emulators (WinAPE, CPCE, Caprice32, Arnold, JavaCPC, PC-CPC and WinCPC) under Zexall. They all fail at it to some degree. >:(

Good result!

Arnold does fail them, but not in my work in progress version (which now passes 99%). Not quite as good as cpcbox yet ;)

Tested on Internet Explorer 9 Final (released today):



CPCBox won't work on this browser:
  • Your browser doesn't support Javascript 1.5.
  • Your browser doesn't support Javascript binary strings.
  • Your browser doesn't support HTML5 File API

Your browser doesn't support HTML5 File API
That's the major letdown. And Opera 11 is also plagued by this :(
The only possible workaround here is to do a browser specific path to handle those faked HTML5 browsers.

Safari for iphone and Opera Mini for iphone unfortunately have this problem too.

Android... iphone... wut!?

Seriously guys, you have unreasonable expectations. We're talking about a Javascript CPC emulator here...
Even if it'd happened to work, performance would be abysmal.

Performance would be abysmal, but it would be nice to see it running however :-)

Mochilote beat me to it. Yes, it'd be slow as a snail with arthritis, but so friggin' what? It'd be fun! :D

Ah ok... I see ;)
Well will give it a go...
BTW.: Does your emu accept the new Benediction demo?
It's a corrupted DSK image (151k only)
JavaCPC ignores non-existing tracks and only speaks a warning, that your DSK is corrupted and does not allow you to store on this DSK.

Edit: Yes, works... Nice...

edit: You're right, a warning is probably the smartest thing to do.

Yeah I love the female voice saying "Corrupt disk image loaded" in JavaCPC ;)

Testing in Firefox 4, runs a bit more than twice as fast as it did in 3.6.  About 38-44fps, almost usable now. :)

Maybe it's because I'm using a 32-bit version, rather than 64-bit.  Not sure if the versions on the Ubuntu repositories are 64-bit or not, I'd presume they are.  Mozilla doesn't offer 64-bit binaries. :(

You should probably add the Batman demo to the drop-down list... :)

Btw, what about frame-skipping?
