Commodore 64 emulator.

Overview

VirtualC64 is a user-friendly Commodore-64 emulator. It utilizes a cycle-based simulation engine to achieve high compatibility. Although cycle-accurate emulation consumes more computing time than, e.g., line-based emulation, all modern machines provide enough computing power to imitate a C64 in real-time. VirtualC64 does not yet reach the awesome compatibility of the classical emulators such as Hoxs64, Vice, or Frodo, however, plenty of games are already running, and the list of compatible applications grows with every new release. Right now, VirtualC64 supports the following file formats: D64, T64, PRG, P00.

VirtualC64 is open-source software published under the GNU general public license. The core emulator is written in C++. The graphical user interface is a native Cocoa application written in Objective-C.

What's new in VirtualC64

Version 3.3.2:
  • Fixed a bug that prevented the sound engine to shut down when an emulator window got closed.
  • Fixed an issue with the Home key on MacBook Pros with Touch Bars.
  • SwiftLint has been integrated into the XCode build tool chain.

Very nice. Just too bad it goes to metal while dropping OpenGl support. There are still many computers which are not Metal ready.

Yup, mine for example. VirtualC64 is over for me. Back to VICE.

I have to modify my earlier comment somewhat. There are still some (partially serious) bugs concerning graphics rendering and audio playback. Doesn't seem to be as stable as Power64 after all. Hmmmm…

Too bad it doesn't load vsf files, because I do prefer VirtualC64 over VICE. The former (v0.9.5.2) is much better, and it has been working flawlessly until now (MBP i7). Power64 seems to have more features, but I don't know if you ever really need them. Anyway, great C64 emulator.
