    Default FrodoDS(C64 emulator) updated



    I finally had some time to work on FrodoDS again after nearly a year without an update, I have added save snapshot support and loading snapshots directly from filelist.

    Will save the snapshot using the currently mounted .D64 name changing extension to .FSS. This new functionality is on the button X.

    Also now when it starts the filelist will no longer popup automatically, so after the c64 boots up, press the left trigger to bring up the filelist, now if you select a snapshot file ending in .FSS, it will automount the same name with .D64 and then autostart the snapshot.

    I have updated my website
    http://gpf.dcemu.co.uk/Frodoc64.shtml
    with the latest release and sourcecode.

    Enjoy,
    Troy(GPF)

    Nice one, always good to see an update for a great machine on an excellent hand held IE the DS :-)

    I would like to see in a future update more options on the bottom touch screen for such things as controls, load/save

    Still a great update ........ cheers

    It uses the D-Pad to emulate a joystick, you press select button to swap it between the emulated port 1 and 2, button A is joystick fire button, B is the same as pressing the spacebar(I added this to throw grenades in commando) , X button save the current emulation state as a snapshot, Left trigger brings up the file list to either launch snapshots, or to mount D64 disk images on drive 8, right trigger autotypes LOAD"*",8,1 and then RUN, and Start button resets the c64.

    Excellent work GPF!! Glad you got the snapshot working.

    I briefly tried Autoduel and it seems to work. After making a driver I saved using the snapshot. Then coldbooted and was able to load up the driver I made. I couldn't move at first so I would hit select and then try to move until it worked (Took a few select clicks). Portable Autoduel

    Also tried Blue Max & Below the Root and both seemed to work fine too.

    Thanks again for the update to this sweet emu.

    EDIT: Played a bit more of Autoduel and its working great. Works perfect in town and saving during arena battles. Cleared my first am night and working on my 2nd. It works on Gunship too but I doubt I see myself playing that much though I did get it up in the air before getting shot down.
