I had no idea that the free C64 emulator found in the Ouya app store (C64 EMU) supports C64 cartridge files and so it was a pleasant surprised to find that they work after loading one in error!
My collection of C64 games and demo images I have on my Ouya’s usb stick is a straight copy from the SD card I use in conjunction with my SD2IEC device which I use on my real Commodore 64 (see various blogs posts in the Commodore Category on the right hand side if you’re interested in the the coolest bit of kit for the c64). It also contains a bunch of .crt cartridge files including some custom collections that I’ve created using Drako’s cart maker for use on my C64 EasyFlash cart
Any-ho, I’d selected one to load whilst messing around with my Ouya thinking it was a regular .d64 image and it wasn’t until I saw the Easyflash menu that I realised that this was one of the custom cartridge images.
A selection of classic C64 cartridge images with a handy EF menu for navigation.
I’ve also tried the cartridge release only of Prince of Persia which works perfectly too.
Hmm, no need to cram this into the USB port then 😉
So there you go. If you’re a C64 fanatic curious about the Ouya, you’ll be pleased to know it supports C64 d64, png and crt files. It’s also worth noting that multi disk swapping is simple too.
