ec64 – a Commodore 64 emulator for GNU/Linux, which makes more than one tear drop. If the game emulation is slow and you are in X mode, try using the framebuffered video output.

The C64 was a very popular home computer in the 1980’s and early 1990’s. From todays point of view, the C64 looks like a toy (no harddisk or floppy built in [you had to buy an extra device usually a C1541 floppy disk drive], 64 KB RAM, 6510 Microprocessor clocked with 1 MHz, high resolution graphics with 320×200). But in the good old days the users had much fun with this machine.

The project started in July 1999, called ec64 (emulated C64). It behaves like a C64 with an attached C1541. The emulation works cycle oriented. At the moment ec64 runs under Linux only.
