Default CPCDroid - Amstrad CPC Emulator for Android

Hi!

I've working for some time in a port of and Amstrad CPC Emulator for Android. Finally, there is a version worth publishing.
It's fully functional and runs most of existent CPC software.

You can download it at:

CPCDroid - Amstrad CPC on Android phone

QR:

It is based on PSPCAP32 (port of Caprice 32 for PSP) by Zx81 and uses Pelya SDL library.

Main features are:
- Screenshot support
- Snapshot support (5 slots per loaded disk name)
- Disk A & B Support
- Autodetection of start file inside loaded DSK image (the program should start automatically after insertion of disk if not disabled in settings)
- Comments for games
- Cheats
- Keyboard remapping (saving, loading, etc..) to ease use of CPC Keyboard with SDL touchscreen virtual buttons
- Joystick remap (as in keyboard remapping)
- Settings support (for changing emulator parameters as rendering mode, skip fps in slow or older phones, etc...)
- Configuration menú can be used without losing CPC emulation state
- Text virtual keyboard can be used in the emulator (press "AB" virtual key on screen upper left side)
- Onscreen virtual keypad with 6 buttons (configurable in the main menu) for controlling CPC programs.
- Runs at CPC full speed (50 fps) in some of the new Android phones (tested on Motorola Defy and HTC Desire). Older phones can set frame skip values to improve emulation speed.


You can download CPC Software and run it on the emulator from different websites on the Internet.

Here are some real captures of the emulator running on Motorola Defy:

Thanks mate!
While I am not very familiar with this one as I was a C64 fan, I love getting old emulators (avid reader of Retro Gaming magazin too) so I cant thank you enough.

You're welcome.

I'm aslo a fan of retrogaming and in all the platforms I've used (PC, PSP, PS2, etc...) I've always installed, if available, an Amstrad CPC emulator and played some of the titles I had for CPC.

Now I'm trying to finish "The Last Mission" in CPCDroid using the snapshots features because is a really hard game and I was not able to beat it in the CPC (I didn't have pokes for this game).

Wow, this is awesome, this was our first home computer when I was a kid (and Dad would bring home the schools C64 on weekends). Time for a nostalgia trip!

Thumbs up Awesome

Any chance of getting this into the market? I'd love to get any updates that come out.

I've found that the key-repeat speed on the joystick is a bit too high in some cases and would like to reduce it, although not sure where to start and can't find any settings for it.

In particular, captain blood is very hard to use, as the cursor skips past the icons. Also just setting up the keyboard can be tricky as left/right often skips past the value you're after.

This blows me away tho. Loving it on the Xoom.

Hey, great work. But I'm using the Asus nexus tablet. I can get as far as loading ROM then it needs the run part but I have no means of running the game, any suggestions?
