C64.app v1.2.24 Findings

Part 1
I finally got around to checking out v1.2.24 of the Commodore 64 Emulator (C64.app) for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch (I’m doing this as I type in fact), and while I already mentioned that you can still play custom games, I didn’t go much further into detail. This will be a multi-part post involving the exploration, discovery and exploitation of the latest release (1.2.24).

Downloaded Purchases or Free games are stored in "/private/var/mobile/Applications/GUID/Documents/games/".

Games are stored using the same unique name scheme as Apps use.
Example: “com.manomio.C64.bruceLee”

Inside that directory you will find the usual game files,
The box art, state file (save file), the gameInfo.plist file and, the game image (rom) itself.

There is also a folder named “images”.
This contains all of the images a game uses, including but not limited to:

    Control Images
    Keyboard Buttons
    Menu Options
    Background Images

The location of the images displayed is controlled in the “gameInfo.plist” file.

Example:

gameInfo.plist

gameInfo.plist

More information to be released as it happens. Stay tuned for more updates to this post shortly!

    So after further testing I have discovered that playing custom games on 1.2.24 is incredibly simple, and I was looking for a challenge 😛

    I have hundreds of games installed!

    You basically follow the guide from 1.1.11 only the directory changed and there is no security.

    I will have all the info you seek up shortly.
