Subject description: Commodore 64 Emulator
 

I've had Frodo C64 emulator working in 64 Bit Fatdog for a while now.
Even though the software is a bit old it compiled okay in Fatdog510 and works fine in Fatdog 611

Note: It needs tcl and tk libraries - you should be able to find them in the
fatdog repository

http://distro.ibiblio.org/fatdog/pets/

As for my pet give it a try - let me know if it gives trouble -I can't remember if everything required is in there. If it works then feel free to mirror the file somewhere else. I can't say if the link below will be permanent.

O.k., it works. Now how do I get to full screen mode (apparently this is possible with Frodo)?

@ mini-jaguar
Honestly I have no idea. It might pay to look at the official website.
http://frodo.cebix.net/

I think the originator is planning an update soon - maybe it just might include a full screen option.

I did look there before I even posted. It seems to hint that it would work if SDL is installed, I don't know how to check. I installed the tuxkart pet, I don't know if it helps.

Is there a manual for it? I also want to figure out how to change the cursor colour, on the original C64 I remember a keypress combination with the number keys.

There is a manual in the pet.
If the pet is installed.....

file:///usr/bin/frodo/Docs/Main.html

I'm not sure if the program will let you change anything at the SDL end

There are no screen size settings in root/.frodorc

In usr/bin/frodo/TKGui.tcl you might find some settings to hack.. if that's your kind of thing. That's the limit of what I know about it. I'm just happy that it works to dwell in some C64 nostalgia. If I "play" with frodo I often use the version for Nintendo DS (Homebrew) or on a ASUS Eeepc with Pupeee, then the screen size is ideal.
