CCS64 Commodore 64 emulator.

  • Latest version 3.9.2 (8 Sep 2015)
  • Works on Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Vista, XP (32/64 bits)
  • Emulates Commodore 64
  • Needs DirectX 9.0c
  • Supports .T64, .TAP tape image files, .D64, .G41 and .G64 disk image files, .PRG, .P00 program files
  • Comments: With a well organized options menu you can configure everything you want. Only the savegames are quite large (1MB). The sound driver seems completely occupied by CCS64, because it ignores all other sources of sound when the CCS64 window is focused. But sound is stable.

So, what to do to play C64 games with CCS64?

Windows 8 and 10: install DirectX 9

CCS64 needs DirectX 9.0c to function properly. As Windows 8 and 10 come with DirectX 11 and 12 by default (which does not include DirectX 9.0c and previous versions), you might need to install DirectX 9.0c manually. DirectX 9.0c download and installation instructions are here.

Video modes and full screen

You can also choose from many video modes in the options menu. When you're not able to return to the video options after selecting a high resolution (and CCS64 runs in full screen), press ALT+V and choose the "Window x2" mode.
