    There is a new CPC emulator: CapriceRPi2, it is very powerfull and easy to use due to menus like this:
    CapriceRP2 in action

    More important keys:
    F8: Graphic menu (can type automatically |CPM, RUN”, etc…)
    F1: Fullscreen
    F5: Type automatically |TAPE + RUN”
    F10: Exit

    The binaries are here and the source code is here.

    For more information: KaosOveride (the autor) explains more details on this thread in http://www.amstrad.es’s forum (on Spanish, sorry)

    I’m somewhat new to linux. I’ve tried, but I couldn’t get this working. Could you give me step by step instructions?

    Just download the binary from here, descompress and launch the binary.

    tar -zxvf CapriceRPI2-TEST_BUILD.tgz
    cd RELEASE
    ./capriceRP2

    Are you trying to play CapriceRP2 in Raspberry pi 2?
    If you are using an older raspberry pi and it doesn’t work, try to recompile again.

    Is the MEGA link the official download? If possible i would like a official sourceforge or github repo with author name and so on.

    Yeah!! Where are now at version 1.1 after new options have been added and some bug fixed.

    No more RUN” commands to type!! Most DSKs will be autodetected with Autorun feature. Need to type and your setup does not have a keyboard, only joysticks?? Virtual keyboard to the rescue, works with both joysticks. Fast tape loading, 5x speed, and also no need to type the loading command!!.

    With DSK, CDT and SNA support, you can use all the programs and games from CPC software packs all arround internet, also if they are in ZIPs (One ZIP = 1 DSK, CDT or SNA… save space!!!)

    With Raspberry Pi 1 support (Some HQ video options disabled like interlaced video or scanlines)

    Enjoy!!!!

    Hi,

    Is there an option to use a usb keyboard on the emulator ?

    The reason is that I play Adventure games and virtual keyboard is not the best way.

    Thanks

    I use a real USB keyboard, just press F9 to change between real keyboard and virtual keyboard.

    can this run GX4000 roms?

    No, CapriceRPI doesn’t emulate neither CPC+ nor GX4000.
    Try Arnold CPC, it is slower, less stable but support CPC+ and GX4000.

    You can open dsk, cpr, cdt, cdt, tzx, csw, wav, voc and sna.
    These files may be compressed into a zip or a tar.gz

    I don’t try all the formats…

    What’s the difference between this and the Caprice emulator we already have in RetroPie?
