But JavaCPC I think is quite too complex and sure has some bad written routines, which fail on Linux systems...
(It also copies windows resources like CPCXFS, SamDisk etc...) into C:\Documents & Settings\Username\JavaCPC or different path for Win Vista/7 which logically work only with Windows OS.)
This bit works (the copying, at least), they are copied to ~/JavaCPC (~ = the user's home folder, Documents and Settings\User is the Windows equivalent to that).  Does it attempt to run any of the Windows apps while loading?

No... The Win apps are only called when you need them.
(DiskUtil, Wav2CDT, etc...)

Please edit javacpc.ini and change this entry:
console=true change to:
console=false

Then, please run JavaCPC.jar from a command line.
java -Xmx512m -jar JavaCPC.jar

Please send me the console output as mail if possible (or in MSN).

Don't expect too much!
Actually it's the only game which works  :laugh:

Perhaps I will finish the rest in 10 or 20 years  :police:

Well so far:
 
 
 
 
 
 

Only working games are:
Barbarian 2,
Tin Tin on the moon
and Mystical.

Need to add much more (DMA, plus raster interrupts, etc....)

There also seem to be a bug in memory itself... Still working on it...

A small oversight of what is working and what not:
http://cpc-live.com/crapandworking/index.html

Much more emulation is needed to get the other things working, too...
And I still have this memory leaking issue  :'(

Mate, are you aiming at a 100% working Plus emu or is it a side-project? :)

First...
Why not JavaCPC with + emulation?
But I'm still far far away from something releasable....

Oh no! I didn't say you shouldn't - of course you should!!! It's just that, IIRC, you had once said it wasn't going to happen... :)

Actually I am working on CRT phosphor matrix emulation...


I need to improve the framerate (It's still 50fps internally but when the blur-filter is active, the image flickers when here is any motion)

Well, I agree, technical improvements are wonderfull, but without 50 fps pretty needless.

Looking very cool, though I think that a little more transparency on the matrix would be better? I also like the screen glare :)

Small update with great new feature:
Today I uploaded my latest build which contains a "Favourite-Browser".
This is to be used as little internal application which can store up to 1000 files in a desktop-style window.
You can simply add the actual DSK from JavaCPC's drive 0 or 1 to it, or also select a file from a filechooser.
You can also drag & drop 1 or more files together into the browser window.


The point is that you now don't need to search your most used media on your PC.
Each icon is stored in a config file and you quickly can open each file by double click on it.
On DSK files you can select the drive by right clicking on it and choose to load it to DF0 or DF1.

A few more screens:
 
Here you can add your files or cleanup the window by rightclick into empty area of the browser.

 
Typical right-click menu for a DSK file.

You can try the actual beta here:
Download JavaCPC

Actually the fav.-browser is only reachable when desktop is choosen.

Well I have a simple dual core CPU @ 2,8 ghz.
64Bit Windows 7 BUT 32 bit Java!
(I quote somebody well known here: 'javax.sound API sucks') ;)


Worked on the favourite browser: You can add/remove user defined icons now:


(My fav.-browser actually contains 480 files just for a test)
When you add new icons and you already have so many, it takes some seconds, but once defined it works fast enough ;)
