***UPDATE : ERROR in readme , loading game is Hold L press Select ****
For those who cannot wait and because I may not be able get much time on the computer for the next few days.
Frodo (Commodore 64) for Dingoo Preview
This is just a preview and there is still plenty more that needs doing.
Emulator Installation
Copy the folder over as usual. My dmenu configuration is below. Change as appropriate.
MenuItem Frodo
Icon = "/usr/local/emulators/FrodoDingoo/commodore.png"
Name = " Frodo"
Executable = "./"
WorkDir = "/usr/local/emulators/FrodoDingoo"
Selector = yes
MenuItem FrodoPC
Icon = "/usr/local/emulators/FrodoDingoo/commodore.png"
Name = " FrodoPC"
Executable = "./"
WorkDir = "/usr/local/emulators/FrodoDingoo"
Selector = yes
MenuItem FrodoSC
Icon = "/usr/local/emulators/FrodoDingoo/commodore.png"
Name = " FrodoSC"
Executable = "./"
WorkDir = "/usr/local/emulators/FrodoDingoo"
Selector = yes
C64 Games and Apps Installation
put zipped .d64 files in the 64diskimages folder ( leave the Foo1.d64 file in this folder alone and don't try to select it as it's a placeholder for the application you are about to run)
Starting a game and Controls
Select either Frodo or FrodoPC or FrodoSC from the dmenu.
Frodo - Fastest , Least Compatible
FrodoPC - Fast, Less Compatible (works great for impossible mission)
FrodoSC - SLOOOW, most Compatible
In dmenu you navigate to the 64diskimages folder and select your .zip file containing the .d64 file (a very common format on the internet)
In a short while you should see the blinking cursor of the commodore c64 (yeh!)
Hold Down L and press SELECT and you should hopefully have started your game/app
Dpad and button A = joystick
START = Virtual Keyboard (just the basics for now)
R = Quit
Each compatiblity mode is different so if FrodoPC and FrodoSC don't work it doesn't necessarily follow that Frodo won't.
Here is a quick explanation of what the scripts do (if somethings not working).
The frodorc file is mapped to a file called Foo1.d64 in the diskimages folder. The dingoo scripts unzip your selected zip and overite the Foo1.d64 file with the contents of it.
