How to: Load Custom Games on C64 v1.1.11 (Rev.2)
This guide is going to assume you already have some basic knowledge.
– OpenSSH (Install via Cydia)
SSH into the following Directory “/private/var/mobile/Applications/*/C64.app/games/DragonsDen”
* = The Apps GUID. Just browse till you find it or grab my tool from here to find it if you have a few hundred apps installed.
Copy the game you want to play into the DragonsDen directory, there’s no need to change the name, but make sure its not compressed. It should end with .D64, I will have a guide up for .t64 images soon.
And DO NOT remove the DRAGONSD.D64 file! It is required to pass the security check on program startup.
Create a backup of “gameinfo.plist” in case any editing goes bad.
Edit “gameinfo.plist” following the details below.
The areas in Green are optional.
The areas in Red and Yellow are critical.
Make sure the information in yellow matches the correct information of your game.
The gameid is the same as your save states name, not necessarily your games name.
You MUST clear the previous save state listed in the Red area.
(Mine is blank because I removed it)
If you want to add your own box art and author information you can do so by placing the images name and details into the Green area.
Here is a look at the Original Un-Modified gameinfo.plist for DragonsDen.
Get to it!
The advanced How To Guide!
SSH into the C64 dir and modify the DragonsDens folder contents, Leave the DRAGONSD.D64 in the folder and DO NOT rename the folder. Add the game you want to play to the folder and edit the gameinfo.plist file so that all felds match the games data. The savestate name is the gameid. Add your own box art image if you like. See the images above for examples. You shouldn’t even need this guide 😛
