Droid-CPC


Droid-CPC is an Amstrad CPC emulator for Android.
The Amstrad CPCs were 8 bits computers popular in Europe.
You can now play thousands of CPC games on your Android device.

Droid-CPC supports:
- Virtual Joystick on touchscreen (analog or directions keys)
- Virtual keyboard
- Hardware gamepads (XB360, Moga, etc.) with customable controls
- Hardware keyboards
- Snapshots (you can save / restore the state of the CPC, so any game can be saved / loaded)
- OpenGL renderer

"Sorcery +" is provided with the emulator so you can quickly check how the emulator works .

How to install and launch games:
--------------------------------------------
You can install games (.dsk files) in /sdcard/Kokak/droidcpc/Disks

For each .dsk file you add, you can add a .opt file (= a text file with the same name as the dsk) containing the name of the executable on the floppy disk. So, when you will select the dsk in the launch window, the game will be launched automatically.
Example: for sorceryp.dsk, sorceryp.opt contains "SORCERY.BIN" which is the executable.

To launch games manually, under the basic prompt, simply type:
RUN"executable, where "executable" is the .BAS or .BIN file on the floppy disc.
You can list the files by typing the "CAT" command.


Droid-CPC should work at full framerate on any device.

There are options on the launch window (please scroll it if necessary).
Check "Use Arrows" to replace the virtual analog stick by 4 directions keys.
Uncheck "LowRes Buffer" to have a readable "Mode 2" (slower on low-end devices)
Uncheck "Full Screen" to have original screen ratio.

Inside the emulator, tap the '+' icon to see disks, snapshots, turbo, joystick mapping, reset, numeric keypad, arrows options (and the Escape key).
When the "Keypad" icon is selected it sends numeric keypad keycodes to the emulator when you press numeric keys on the virtual keyboard.
The "Esc" (Escape) key next to the "Keypad" icon sends the "Esc" key to the emulator.
You can use the "arrows" icon (below the "disk" icon) to swap between virtual joypad and arrows virtual keys ingame.

Crashes Doesn't run Fruity Frank which was the single game I bought Droid Cpc for. Reported crash several times. Edit: I also emailed the DSK to you as you requested. edit: it turned out to be a problem with the folder. apparently dsks will need to be in a specific folder. updated my rating.

Not bad but I can't play my games. It's great to see my old amstrad games but I cannot get the games to play for more than a minute on my Samsung s4 before the app crashes. The games I want to play are batman, batman the movie and head over heels. Also batman the movie game requires a diagonal option on the controls for the rope. It is possible to press both buttons at the same time but it is a little fiddly. Could you fix the samsung s4 crash bug? The diagonal buttons can wait if it's a pain. Can't wait for future releases with fixes

Good but... Virtual analog joystick should really be improved. Directions are not precise at all... Even worse it often goes to the wrong direction (Nexus5). Please help!
