Tips & Tricks:

  • Swapping Game Disk Images: (Got the message “Turn disk over and press space”? )

Some Commodore 64 games required multiple disks or swapping sides. If you’ve been curious to know just how to load these when prompted by the C64 Emulator then read on to learn just how simple it is.

  1. From the “My Games” menu tap Run/Play next to side 1 of the game you wish to play.
  2. When prompted to turn the disk over or insert additional disks tap the “My Games” icon in the lower left of the Emulator.
  3. From the “My Games” menu tap Run/Play next to side 2 of the game you wish to continue playing.
  4. When asked if you would like to “Resume from previous game” say YES.
  5. Press the “Spacebar” to continue loading side 2.
  6. Follow the onscreen instructions. Some game trainers require full 1541 Support which will not work with some games, thus causing an error. You may have to make a few attempts before you’ll be able to play. Some games such as Remember’s release of Alien Syndrome simply won’t let you past the 1541 Errors and will require a pre-set save state file or a patched game image to work or an image release from another group.
