The following screenshots illustrate real world
usage scenarios of C64 Forever. Click on the images below for additional details.
C64 Forever on
playback sessions can be active
simultaneously. The image shows the
player with different 8-bit sessions
(VIC 20, C16, C64).
C64 Forever makes content
easily accessible, while providing
familiar media player-like controls.
Detail Options are
simple, intuitive and generally shared
across different emulation plugins.
Context-sensitive help is always
available by clicking the "?" button.
Sessions can be saved at any time and
resumed later, if so desired (saved
sessions may also be discarded).
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
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 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 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.
