Retrovirtualmachine is for PC, Mac, Linux and maybe someday also for Android ? Who knows ?Anyway the interface is very nice and very easy to use. I think it is really cool and the best emulator I've found so far.

It has a lot of potential. There's a few tweaks needed.

But it's definitely better than the horribly outdated WinApe. Don't get me wrong, WinApe was king for it's time, but let's face facts...

2001 was almost 20 years ago!
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

WinAPE may feel outdated, but it remains my emulator of choice when programming/debugging. I did not see any other emulators (yet) running on PC providing a better workflow (for programmers).

That said, RVM became my emulator of choice for launching a game or a demo etc. because I like the fact is native on Linux systems.

Work on code... Caprice (because you decide if a DSK gets changed or not, and which name you use for it; quickest turbo mode for assembling)
Debugging... WinCPC
Most accurate emulation... JavaCPC
Most hardware supported... JavaCPC
6128 Plus emulation... WinApe

And btw. During the last few days(!) I got updates for JavaCPC and WinApe. I can't understand how somebody could talk about 2001.
