CPCemu v2.5, an Amstrad CPC emulator by Rainer Loritz is available


Rainer has released CPCemu v2.5. It's available for MacOS, Android, iOS, Linux (x86_64 and ARM, included Raspberry Pi) and Windows.

This new version is available on the author's web site or on the Google Play store for the Android version.

This new version features :

  • Floppy LED (visible only with virtual keyboard)
  • Virtual keyboard : adjustable (position, size, transparency), persistent (saves position, size, transparency automatically, separately for portrait and landscape on Android and iOS), visual and acoustic (switchable) feedback
  • Virtual joystick in two different sizes
  • Virtual mouse (selectable instead of joystick): AMX, Reisware/Gerdes or Symbiface II (PS/2)
  • Original sounds of disk drive, cassette relay and keyboard (can be switched on and off)
  • Zoom function (display without border), alternating with and without full screen; persistent (separately for portrait and landscape on Android and iOS)
  • Audio emulation deeply revised; output quality significantly improved (you can select from 4 output frequencies)
  • Vortex memory extension SP64-SP512
  • Jarek memory extension 576-4096 Kb
  • Bank-switching speed dramatically improved; correct emulation of C3 mode
  • IPv6-enabled web server similar to M4 board (upload and download into/from the emulator via web interface)
  • Autostart behaviour improved (automatic file selection and deactivation)
  • Minimal audio latency on Android (Oboe)
  • User interface improved on Android/iOS
  • Setup settings are saved immediately
  • First preparations for new user interface
  • Adjusted to SDL version 2.0.22 (which needs to be installed manually on Linux)
  • Fixed bugs: background-foreground-changing behaviour on Android, real-time speed, video output speed (in particular on Android, iOS and MacOS, I think also on the Raspberry Pi), memory leaks, M4 sockets, file access on Android and iOS
