c64_preview

Manomio's Commodore 64 emulator [$4.99] has finally been approved by Apple. We first reported on the project back in June, after Manomio had received their first rejection from Apple. The rejection was particularly disappointing considering the efforts that Manomio had made in making sure their emulator fully licensed and legal.

We posted an extensive hands on with the emulator shortly after rejection. The final Apple approved version appears to be the same but with BASIC disabled. Note that some of the games demonstrated in the video aren't actually available yet. See below for the launch list.


[ Full HD version | Low Bandwidth version ]

It's important to note that Manomio's C64 emulator will not run arbitrary disk images, and only supports fully licensed disk images that are offered through Manomio.

It works like this: the emulator comes bundled with several C64 games (Artic Shipwreck, Dragon's Den, Jack Attack, Jupiter Lander and Lemans) along with standard Commodore BASIC 2.0 interpreter. Users can purchase separately sold program packs (early prices appear to be $0.99-$1.99 each and are determined by original IP holders) from the App Store that, when launched, install a game (or games) into the main application, adding them to the bookcase-like program launcher.

The $4.99 C64 emulator costs $4.99 and includes 5 games: Dragons Den, Le Mans, Jupiter Lander, Arctic Shipwreck, and Jack Attack. Additional separately sold game packs will be coming soon. With the C64 emulator approved, Manomio is also clear to pursue further licensing deals and they have said they are actively working on adding new titles.

App Store Link: C64, $4.99

    Great news and hopefully some more recognisable games will be made available soon. One problem I can see is that the C64, like many systems at that time, was quite reliant on arcade conversions. Licensing those would be quite difficult I guess.

    • Rozz

      Not nearly as much as you think... Most of the best games games (like Broderbund's) were originals or were ports from the Apple 2. Karateka, Paradroid, Raid on Bungeling Bay, the original Wolfenstein, Impossible Mission... I could list a hundred games that weren't from the arcade.

      Besides, conversions of arcade games are a dime a dozen on the iPhone and most of them will look and play a lot better than their C64 version. People are going to buy the games that aren't available elsewhere on this.

      Let's hope they get M.U.L.E. That should have been a release title!

      • Eric

        I'd love to see: Deathsword, Elite, any Ultima.

        Mule would be awesome, except for the UI wouldn't really work with iPhone. A networked version would be great, but that's a re-write. Who owns Mule these days? It was a Dan/Danielle Bunten game done for EA if I'm not mistaken.

      • Chuckie

        Oh Man Raid on bungling bay would be fantastic. I would also love to see:

        Mail order monsters.
        Forbidden Forrest
        Beyond Forbidden Forest ( I would die for those 2 )
        Castles of Dr. Creep

        I would buy this App 6 times over just for those games

  • Joshua Ochs

    If I can't load my own games and there's no BASIC, then there's no sale. That makes all that work pretty much useless. We're never going to see Below the Root, Radar Rat Race, The Hobbit, packaged up. We'll likely never see the hojillion random games others want to see - just the very few most popular.

    • MidianGTX

      Well duh. You'd have to be moronic to release an emulator and intentionally release unpopular games.

    • Dreezix

      Dude, just.. shut up. Apple never would have allowed that in a million years, and only a tiny minority would even want to go through the trouble of acquiring C64 disk images and loading them on the phone. You don't want to buy it, fine, but I'm sick of whiners with completely unrealistic expectations.

      • frymaster

        but why is a BASIC interpreter, or loading of arbitrary code, "unrealistic" to expect? There isn't another smartphone manufacturer in the business with such draconian rules

    its funny, the app page in itunes shows the basic emulator, which is not in it, kinda misleading

    Im all for it, I love the C64, so this is an instant buy to support it and bring more titles

    then there are a few where i can't remember the names,
    Dragon ForcE?
    that Aztec one, where you are racing, jumping obstacles and ducking?

    I'm feeling some Spindizzy, definitely. Along with maybe some Zoids, wizball, kickstart II, and most importantly, Parallax.

    To be honest, the best games were the Mastertronic budget titles, along with the spin off label Ricochet.

    Nice idea... But the initial game lineup is an extreme disappointment. IMO they should have waited until they got at least 2 decent, high-profile games to pack with this.

    • Joe Sixgig

      My guess is they did it just right. Like this they get $5 from all true fanatics, bring out some game packs, and then have some promos where the emulator sells for $5 but with some big titles (that the fanatics already bought) included. As I stated below (?) I hope they won't exceed $1 per game.

    This is the best news that come to App Store... since App Store! Hopefully someone can port an Apple II (or better yet, Apple IIGS!) emulator over!

    Since there isn't one yet and not familiar with Commodore 64 (except that I heard that it is superior), if there are any Apple II game ports I will buy this... Karateka? Lode Runner? What other Apple II ports available? Thanks!

    • Lancaster

      Much of what came out on the C64 also came out on the Apple II. There was a *lot* of porting going on back then. The notable exceptions are games that took advantage of the C64's ability to use more than one joystick (such as M.U.L.E.).

      Since the Apple II is a dead platform, Apple has nothing to lose by authorizing an Apple II emulator on the iPhone, BASIC and all. I'd love to load up an image of the old DOS 3.3 System Master disk and play Wozniak's Little Brick Out.

    I must say there has been some pretty interesting news the last couple of days, this being one of my favourite highlights. One question to the devolopers (if they are still reading). Since the emulator can emulate the C64 sound chip, would it be possible for you guys to incorporate a mediaplayer and the proper license to make music packs available for download? Check out http://www.hvsc.c64.org/ for more "inspiration". I would love to be able to sit in the train on my way to work and just listen to some cool old chip music. :)

    Rufus, you're right! In addition, you can enable BASIC this way!!!! Just make sure you don't provide anything in the "initialState" key in gameInfo.plist - then, if you don't load anything, BASIC will be started.

    I'll post a detailed "hacking guide" really soon!

      How can you add a custom game? I changed the plist file, add new png-s, and a custom T64 file, but it can't load. When I load the Dir, it shows another image's content... fck.. but Basic is here :)

      • Randy

    Rufus, you're right! In addition, you can enable BASIC this way!!!! Just make sure you don't provide anything in the "initialState" key in gameInfo.plist - then, if you don't load anything, BASIC will be started.

    I'll post a detailed "hacking guide" really soon!

      How can you add a custom game? I changed the plist file, add new png-s, and a custom T64 file, but it can't load. When I load the Dir, it shows another image's content... fck.. but Basic is here :)

    For all those clamoring for M.U.L.E, bear in mind that the game in its c64 form wouldn't be playable using the iPhone interface.

    However, I just found out that the family of Dani Bunten is moving forward with official releases of remakes of Bunten's work, including M.U.L.E for the iPhone currently in development. Very cool. http://www.offworld.com/2009/09/ye-shall-receive-mule-remake-i.html

    I can't figure out how to point a newly added game to the appropriate .t64 file even though it resides in the new subdirectory I created for that game (residing inside the games directory) and even though I edited its plist file appropriately... any help would be appreciated... when I launch the newly added game (which appears in the bookshelf just fine), it loads another stock game instead (!)

    Ok, I've figured it out... In the gameInfo.plist file for a particular game, you must add this bit of xml, and then the game will reference the appropriate game .t64 file...

    ADD...
    game-images

    gamename.t64

    THEN, to add back the entire keyboard and controls for any game... simply remove these lines from that game's same gameInfo.plist file...
    i.e.,
    REMOVE...
    keyboard

    layout-name
    noControlsLayout
    background
    nocontrols_bg.png

    That's it. Newly added games all work!

    unfortunately in the message I just left above, the necessary brackets were removed here... so it made no sense... I'll try something else...

    To make a newly added game reference its appropriate .t64 file, you must edit that game's gameInfo.plist file. First, you would ADD a key titled "game-images" (without the quotes) and then under that ADD an array-string for that new key titled "gamename.t64" (again, without the quotes but with the exact name of the .t64 file.

    THEN... to add back all keyboard functionality for any game, you would delete the "keyboard" key and its dict strings that directly follow from that same gameInfo.plist file.

    I hope this clarifies for somebody out there!

    Apart from being awesome news, the big unknown is how much individual games would cost. I'm hoping $1 each. That could still end up bringing in $100 per user, which would make this likely very profitable. Once games get over $1 I suspect the nostalgia could lose out to stinginess.

    Now bring on International Karate, Bruce Lee, Zaxxon, Impossible Mission, Boulder Dash, Commando, Who Dares Wins, Microprose Soccer, Summer games (but how to control..?), Winter Games, H.E.R.O., Pitstop II (single player I guess), Green Beret, Rick Dangerous, and Exploding Fist.

        Thanks. That's both bad and good news. Bad because I'll be making lots of $1 purchases.. You may want to set up a central poll to see which games people are really aching for. It seems like we have a few clear favorites. Thanks for developing this, I've been following this from the early stages (since you switched back from VICE to Frodo). It must be great to finally make it into the app store. Congrats on the progress, and good luck getting the old devs to contribute/allow games in. I get the feeling a lot of us old timers will end up paying our dues - because it's so easy to pay, and because by now we've got the money to afford games! Good luck with the work. -Joe

    omg. I hit reset, dropped into the Basic emulator, searched my rusty brain archives, and wrote a frikkin C64 program on my iPhone. It's like I'm 12 again.

    10 PRINT CHR$(147)
    15 POKE 53281,0:POKE 646,1
    17 PRINT "HELLO WORLD"
    20 FOR X=1 TO 1000
    25 PRINT CHR$(19),,X
    30 NEXT
    50 END

    By the way, they forgot (or I cannot find) the semicolon ; character on the C64 keyboard. Dangit...that's really important for manipulating strings on screen! Where's the semicolon??? I am going to waste so much time messing with this.

    So how can I get a terminal emulator or modem emulator running on this thing and connect my iPhone C64 to the outside world? That would be beyond cool (and beyond pointless, but hey why not)...

    Adding Games with more than one disks seems to be simple, it worked for Defender of the Crown for me like this:

    1) add both discs as seperate games
    2) start the first disc like a normal game
    3) when you are asked to change the disk in the game go to the games shelf
    4) select the second disc
    5) a windows popped up that asked to resume previous game
    6) select yes and the game goes on, but with the second disk inserted

    Worked fine on DOTC for me, so i guess it works on more games.

    Also make sure to change the string Emul1541Proc in the gameinfo.plist from false to true to support full 1541 usage.

    • Methusa

      DOTC is the only game I cannot get working.. If I use True emulation, it tells me File not found on loading, it I disbale true emulation, after the cracked group greeting, I get an illegal operation, true emulation must be turned on.

      Ive even tried to go Load "$",8 -> List and load it that way in true emulation, but the emulator wont have none of it.

    Another couple of tips for people adding their own games...

    If you want to create a save state so the game starts instantly every time you play it do this: Hold iphone in portrait mode so you have the bottom menu. Load the game and go past intros etc. As soon as you get to the point you want to start from, touch My Games at the bottom, then exit the emulator.

    Now SSH/SFTP in to the application directory and look in Documents. You should find a .state file there (e.g. I added IK+ so had ikplus.state) which you can copy into the game folder. Then edit the game's plist and set the initialState string to the .state filename. If unsure look at the included games plists for an example. You could also backup multiple save states like this if you wanted.

    BUT WAIT. THATS NOT ALL... I have kindly uploaded this PSD which you can use to make your own game art. I recommend lemon64 for the cover images. Hurray me.

    Because you can access the C64 Basic with a simple trick. As far as i know it was demanded by Apple not to make this possible if they allow the release, since officially you are not allowed to upload software to the AppStore that emulators some other device fully.

    One probable reason for Apple's insistence that Basic not be accessible within the app is the potential of a lawsuit from Microsoft, whose lawyers just love to find stuff like this. Commodore Basic was licensed from Microsoft for the Commodore branded machine ROM only. Microsoft still maintains their rights to the code. This could be a big legal mess. Don't blame Apple. Blame Bill's lawyers.

  • http://www.pocketplayers.info Damien

    yes, mind if i copy my posting from above? ^^

    Adding Games with more than one disks seems to be simple, it worked for Defender of the Crown for me like this:

    1) add both discs as seperate games
    2) start the first disc like a normal game
    3) when you are asked to change the disk in the game go to the games shelf
    4) select the second disc
    5) a windows popped up that asked to resume previous game
    6) select yes and the game goes on, but with the second disk inserted

    Worked fine on DOTC for me, so i guess it works on more games.

    Also make sure to change the string Emul1541Proc in the gameinfo.plist from false to true to support full 1541 usage.

    Aron says: "Why should I have to buy gamepacks for this when all C64 games are legally available for free from C64.com?"

    Probably because they AREN'T available legally for free. Only a tiny number of C64 games (such as those by Jeff Minter and Scott Adams) are available as official freeware. Everything else is still owned by some company or other, in the same way Nintendo still owns the rights to Super Mario Bros.

    Just thought of something. This same guy
    minomio released a port of flashback. I'm pretty
    sure I heard that an emulator was used to run
    this. It would have to be an amiga emulator
    I guess because that was the original
    port. Could this also be altered to load

    amiga roms?

    I doubt he made an amiga emulator just to release flashback. There are alot of Engines that run Flashback, so i guess one of these was ported.

    To Stuart Carnie :
    Your emulator suck!!!
    I paid for it and found the stupidiest games ever made for C64. My fault, I should check it first, but still, your emulator suck. I know that you want to sell aditional games via in games purchase, but then: the emulator should be either free or there should be at least one or two good games and not these worst games ever made. Just check appstore what nice titles I can buy for 5 EUR! For example Dungeon Hunter. Can any of your stupid titles match this great game? I don't think so...

    Frequently mulberry bags sold on significant auction internet sites and illegitimate online storefronts, fake Mulberry bags might be tough to spot. Mulberry is actually an English manufacturer of designer handbags, residence goods and other accessories. Their tote bags are commonly accepted as luxury fashion items which fetch a high cost when purchased retail in new, unused condition. Since with all the popularity for authentic Mulberry bags, there is a thriving market of imitation purses and knock-off totes.
    Feel the bag is leather. Authentic Mulberry bags are produced having a thin antiqued leather that feels soft and worn. The mulberry bags on sale are crafted from a challenging, grainy leather which does not flex.
