A Home Computer Emulator for iPad.
Almost Like the Real Thing.
Ready is an open source emulator for the following 8 bit home computers:
- Commodore 64
- Commodore VIC-20
- Commodore 16, Plus/4
- Sinclair ZX Spectrum (16k, 48k, Spectrum+, 128k, +2)
With preliminary support for these computers:
It requires at least iPadOS 13.5.
It aims to approximate the feeling of using actual hardware:
- Rather than configuring abstract settings, you select hardware components.
- The software keyboard is a facsimile of the original, reflecting the different existing styles.
- Even the noise of the disk drive is emulated.
The Library section offers a way to organize a large collection of games, demos and programs. The emulated hardware can be customized for each entry.
The Inbox provides a place to quickly try new programs. You can easily move the ones you want to keep to the library.
Tools mode allows attaching a cartridge like Action Replay or Final Cartridge and a collection of disks with your favorite tools, to help you dig into the programs, like back in the day.
The beginnings of a User Manual can be found in the wiki. Any help on expanding it would be greatly appreciated.
