CrocoDS v2.1, an Amstrad CPC emulator for Nintendo DS and RGC350 by Kyuran

-

The last version of the Amstrad CPC emulator CrocoDS v2.1 for the Nintendo DS went out in 2013 and is available on github. It is based on the WinCPC emulator by Ludovic Deplanque.

And now Kyuran has ported CrocoDS (RGC350) on the portable console using OpenDingux (debian) : the Retro Game Console 350, which you can find easily on Amazon.

But a Sony PSP or PS Vita will let you emulate the Amstrad CPC better on a graphinc point of view :

  • Nintendo DS : 256 × 192
  • RGC 3650 : 320x240
  • Sony PSP : 480 × 272

You can see a vidéo by Oldschool is beautiful (french) which will show you how to use emulators on Sony PSP. To do the same thing on the PS Vita, you can check the site of Wololo.

CPCEC (windows) is a new Amstrad CPC emulator by CNGSOFT released in 2019, which replaces CPCE (dos/windows).

An 11th release is available since the 31th July, the news are :

  • 20190731 -- eleventh public release. Added a new UI-based debugger (typing commands is no longer needed) and support for ZIP archive reading based on PUFF.C from the ZLIB project, upgraded GCC to 5.1.0 and removed all `inline` tags (they did more harm than good), and generally reworked all internals to make them OS-independent. Several details improved as well: the file selector fixes a bug in Win10, "browse tape" dialog shows the file name, Spectrum +3 automatically becomes +2A to load tapes, `auto rewind` shows up in Edit menu and fixes bugs in CSW files, and sound emulation has improved, for example "Terminus" on CPC plays sound and "Agent X II" on Spectrum is no longer noisy.
