Commodore 64 on Raspberry Pi

Gadget, Game comments edit

I used to love my Commodore 64 when I was a child. Now that we have the ability to emulate old machines and memories I decided to give it a go. Apparently creating a MAME is a popular subject. I’ve found this C64 emulator: http://www.mascal.it/rpi64_e.html.

It’s pretty straightforward. Download the rom, burn it to an SD card using a tool (I used Win32DiskImager). Then upload your ROMs to RPi and let the good times roll!

One of my favourite games was Donkey Kong so I decided to start with that.

It loaded nice and dandy but couldn’t play it with the keyboard. So either I’m going to buy an old Joystick and figure out a way to connect it to the RPi or try to dig a little deeper to find out the key mapping.
