Actually it happened on the Amstrad Discord channel run by @Devlin (https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=389) :

It's basically MAME compiles to Javascript and WebAssembly (which MAME does on its own), and a launcher, which in this case is Emularity.


I've done it with a couple of different machines, so if we'd like to have it on the CPCWiki I can surely help.

It's really nice, I had a great time browsing through the collections and rediscovering some forgotten gems :)

I've just been using it to play Dizzy on my Xbox One but yeah, it's a great resource. :D

i tried it on my ps4 just now and it just seems to get stuck at 'launching emulator'  :(   oh wait no, now it just went black.  Still no game.  I've googled that javascript is a bit broken on ps4 since a recent system software update so maybe that why? I dunno. I just wanted to play cpc games on my ps4 there and got all hyped up.  oh well

I can't speak for the PS4 (I don't have one yet and only have an Xbox One because a friend sold theirs to me for cheap!) but on the XBox One I know that it takes a few minutes to get the game started but when it's finally up and running, it all works just fine (I even plugged in a USB keyboard so I could game without having to use the rubbery keyboard attachment on my controller!).

Oh! I never noticed this thread! Thank you all :) It was a lot of fun working with Jason Scott to make this happen.
