Honorable Mention - MIX09 Show Off Contest - Silverlight Commodore 64 Emulator

3 minutes, 4 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Cycle-exact Commodore 64 emulator written in C#, much ported from C++ Frodo emulator. Done just to prove Silverlight can do almost anything. Most C64 hardware is emulated and it’s running off real C64 ROM images. Display is a MediaStreamSource 50fps video I’m generating from raw emulated VIC-II graphics chip output.

Built by:
- Pete Brown

Tools used:
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2008, Silverlight 3

    Glad you all liked it. I'll release the source to codeplex shortly. Plus, there should be a show on hanselminutes in the next week, and a brief look at this and my sl3 synthesizer on the continuum show soon.

    I had a ton of fun doing this Smiley


  • Remember typing in the read/data statements from Compute magazine? I would read them into a tape recorder (Hold down "Play" and "Record" at the same time) and then listen to it and type the byte code in.

    God I'm old.

    My friend and I used to take turns reading and typing. It was sweet when they switched from decimal to hex: 1/3 less typing!

  • SYS64738 man!!!
  • Typing in those programs was how I got to be such a fast typist. Wink Awesome work, Pete!

    That was worth it to see the Break Dance game alone!
  • I love the music in the demo video.  Purple Motion meets Dr. Who?  Now I need to go see if I can find the Unreal demo on YouTube.  Thanks for the trip down memory lane!

    Yep, you nailed that one. You can find the original as "Unreal Who" on http://whomix.trilete.net/ The platformer game in the video was Dr Who, "Second Reality" was the first time I saw my PC do something more impressive than my commdore, and that remix is one of my favorite, so thought it would be a good match Smiley
