Kyuran ported his Nintendo DS Amstrad CPC emulator CrocoDS to the Apple iOS devices. It is heavily based on WinCPC by Ludovic Deplanque. Most modifications to make it run on the Nintendo DS were already made about 6 years ago. The source code is available on GitHub.

To use it on your Apple device, you have to open the .xcode file on your iPhone / iPad. The disk images (.dsk files) have to be send via iTunes.

Flynn released a port of his Amstrad CPC emulator called WinCPC for the MacOS-X operating system. It is currently in alpha stage, but the following features are already implemented:

  • FDC emulation is complete. In MacCPC, stepping rate is considered as well.
  • PSG/sound rendering is complete.
  • CRTC/VDU emulation is complete. If desired, PAL emulation can be switched on.
  • Tape emulation is complete.
  • DSK and ZIP support.
  • CDT and ZIP support.
  • SNA and ZIP support.
  • Integrated debugger a la WinCPC.

You can download MacCPC directly from Flynn’s homepage or at the end of this posting.

[UPDATE: Flynn updated the emulator to version 0.9.2. This version resolves some problems with screen output in MacOX 10.6]


Version: v0.9.2 alpha
723.5 KiB

Flynn, author of the game H.E.R.O. and the WinCPC emulator for Windows, just wanted to learn how to program an Apple Macintosh and started to port WinCPC. The WinCPC emulation core was ported to C and the View and Controller were ported to Objective-C. He also thought about an iPhone port…

Well, there is lot’s of work to do, e.g. FDC and tape routines, sound rendering and a lot of other things, so it will take some time until MacCPC will be released. He also wrote that he has not discontinued WinCPC.
