AS3 Flash9 Commodore 64 Emulator

Due to the suport of binary ByteArray and/or BinarySockets AS3 has been inspiring all kinds of things from PDF creators, to audio, to JPEG Encoders, to zip libraries, crypto libraries and many others. But you know that a language is inspiring or a platform is inspiring if it drives someone to make a Commodore 64 Emulator within it.

That is right, with AS3 as the tool Claus Wahlers has created FC64, which is an Open-Source Commodore 64 Emulator written in Actionscript 3 for Flash Player 9 licensed under the GPL version 2. Commodore 64 Emulator to read C64 emulator files/roms online and play them.

Summer Games anyone?

    I’ve seen at least one blog that completely emulates the C64 layout… I wonder if this is what they use?

    Yes the FC64 is a neat work! Only pity is that there is no sound. And thats why we should once again sing in choir: Adobe, we want dynamic audio features in Flash Player!

    sascha, totally in agreement. Is Adobe listening? One of your demos could be the FC64 and with sound you will pwn all the geeks that want to program/play with AS3/flash.
