    I've released v1-rc1 of c64-network.org, the revamped Frodo C64 emulator.

    This is still a RC, and I'm looking for graphics- and web design help (see the webpage above for more information). A changelog is available at the wiibrew wiki. Expect problems, but start drawing!

    a very original emulator port (why the name change though since it's still Frodo original code ?) and the only one with netplay support.
    thanks for your work !

    It's no longer only for Wii ("frodo-wii"), and I want to emphasize the networking features. It's still very much based on the Frodo source code, and I believe I make this clear in many places.

    Dear Simon,

    I hope you will still develop UAE Wii. I love it....but it's unstable.

    Anyone else having problems with this ?

    It just reboots to the homebrew channel whenever i launch it.

    @dan_s: Strange. You did unpack the entire tarball on the root of the SD card, right? If it can't find the theme files (/frodo/themes/...), it will behave like that.

    Anyway, it's a pre-release, so some warts are expected :-)

    @corey89: Sounds nice :-)

    I forgot to say: I'll include the submitted themes in the next version (real v1, or if I'll just call it v2), and the best one will be the default one (I have no illusions that my own would qualify as that).

    I'll try this in a bit... thanks in advance. [​IMG]

    I've also updated my theme on wiibrew (I'm Baboon on a lot of other sites) which makes everything look more tidy.

    ... and rc3 as well. Should fix some SD card corruption seen with the earlier RC.

    Just a quick question about this fantastic emulator!! My forwarder I was using for it now freezes when slecting this new version. It loads then freezes on the main menu screen. What has changed it never did this before :/ If somebody has a forwarder that does work i'd be very much grateful [​IMG]

    Well, I don't know anything about that. I just run it from the homebrew channel. I guess you did install everything (i.e., not just the frodo.dol)? In particular, it will crash and burn if it can't find the theme files.

    Ah yes i remember another emulator (Name goes off my head now) having problems with external files apart from the dol.
