Emulates a Commodore 64
Frodo is a freeware C64 emulator for BeOS, Unix, MacOS, AmigaOS, Win32 and RiscOS systems and the world’s first C64 emulator not bearing a “64” in its name. - No, it has absolutely nothing to do with frodo.hiof.no, that’s a pure coincidence.
Frodo was developed to reproduce the graphics of games and demos better than the existing C64 emulators. Therefore Frodo has relatively high system requirements It should only be run on systems with at least a PowerPC/Pentium/68060. But on the other hand, Frodo can display raster effects correctly that only result in a flickering mess with other emulators.
Frodo comes in three flavours The “normal” Frodo with a line-based emulation, the improved line-based emulation “Frodo PC”, and the single-cycle emulation Frodo SC that is slower but far more compatible.
In addition to a precise 6510/VIC emulation, Frodo features a processor-level 1541 emulation that is even able to handle about 95 of all fast loaders. There is also a faster 1541 emulation for four drives in .d64/x64 disk images, .t64/LYNX archives, or directories of the host system.
