fc64 — the flash c64 emulator

Tuesday, May 30, 2006

I had previously posted about the incredible speed of the new Flash Virtual Machine, but had some doubts as to whether a full-blown emulator would perform well in Flash. I've gotta say... those doubts have been thoroughly squashed.

Even on my modest machine, the FC64 Emulator runs at an eye-popping 99FPS. That may not seem like any special feat compared to other C64 emulators, but you have to remember that this is not native code, but Flash byte code running through a virtual machine. Really amazing stuff!
