C64 Emulator written in PHP
For the love of everything that is holy, why, oh god, why!!!!???!!
- Complete the debugger
- Load C64 disks and tapes (we can do PRG though)
- Enable SID
- Fix up VIC sprites
Bugs & Things
- Many.. but we have a functional testsuite that passes (hurrah!)
Running the emulator
Since PHP isn't really capable of displaying graphics (PHP-GTK, maybe), we are using a shared memory block which is read from a python (2.7) program (monitor.py).
This means that the following must take place:
- Make sure you have pygame installed:
pip install pygame
- Start the monitor:
- Start the emulator in another console:
c64.php <file.prg> Actual c64 emulator (with shm monitor output)
c64-debug.php <file.prg> Actual c64 emulator with debug information visible
c64-ws.php Websocket edition. Use with
web/index.htmlto display monitor
c64-debugger.php Full debugger. Still much in progress.
c64-test.php Functional test system for all opcodes. Seems to be passing.
