Commodore 64 JavaScript Emulator

Category: Canvas, Fun, Games


Tim de Koning has done what folks do best with their winter holidays…. created something fun :)

With JSC64 he has ported the Flash version to give us an emulator for the Commodore 64 in JavaScript.

Tim’s work uses Canvas and he provides a jQuery plugin if you are that way inclined. It is fun to check out the source on GitHub.

Awesome, 2 people, same idea. I wrote another C64 emulator in pure javascript from scratch. Not yet fully video-mode supported like yours, but faster in boot-time. See a demo: http://jancona.com/c64

Great work!

Sorry, use the correct link instead ;-) http://jancona.com/c64/

great, now if someone can just port over Forbidden Forrest and Aztec Challenge so I can finally finish them 25 years later, I’d be set.

Shouldn’t that be “Javascript Commodore 64 emulator” :)

Will it make the clicking and whirring noises to tell me when the cassette tape drive comes on?

Here’s a port of a cycle-accurate C64 display (JSIDPlay) for Safari: http://cromwellian.appspot.com/websid/index.html

It comes from the Jac64 distribution which takes no shortcuts in emulation.
