The following screenshots illustrate real world usage scenarios of C64 Forever. Click on the images below for additional details.
C64 Forever on Desktop Multiple playback sessions can be active simultaneously. The image shows the player with different 8-bit sessions (VIC 20, C16, C64).
Player Detail C64 Forever makes content easily accessible, while providing familiar media player-like controls.
Player Options Detail Options are simple, intuitive and generally shared across different emulation plugins. Context-sensitive help is always available by clicking the "?" button.
Close Options Detail Sessions can be saved at any time and resumed later, if so desired (saved sessions may also be discarded).
RP9 Files RP9 files are the retrogaming equivalent of MP3: one file type, one click to play, one framework for multiple platforms. No more multiple-file sets for a single game, no more ZIP archives (RP9 files are already compressed). The RP9 thumbnail provider adds pure eye candy in File Explorer.
RP9 Title Editor All titles can be edited. Either right-click an item and select Edit, or create and edit a copy, or build a new configuration from scratch. Changes are saved to the RP9 file, which is easily portable to other systems.
RP9 Toolbox RP9 Toolbox is a powerful tool to search for content in different formats, rescan and rebuild RP9 files, and import and export to and from RP9.
Social Features Social sharing features (Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Messenger) can be configured from the Options dialog. C64 Forever supports automatic "Now Playing" updates, manual posts via the Share button, and screenshot uploads.
Build Image Dialog The Build Image feature (Tools menu of the Plus Edition) makes it possible to create personalized ISO images (to mount or burn to CD) and portable environments (e.g. to run from USB storage).
Portable Run Menu C64 Forever (Plus Edition) can also run from CD or USB media, without installation. The image shows the options included in the AutoRun dialog on the C64 Forever CD.
