C64 Forever 2012
When the C64 was launched in 1982 it immediately set the standard for 8-bit home computers.
Its low cost, superior graphics, high quality sound and a massive 64 KB of RAM positioned it as the winner in the home computer wars, knocking out competitors from the likes of Atari, Texas Instruments, Sinclair, Apple and IBM.
Selling over 30 million units and introducing a whole generation to computers and programming, the C64 shook up the video games industry and sparked cultural phenomena such as computer music and the demoscene. In recent years the C64 has enjoyed a spectacular revival manifesting itself once again as a retrocomputing platform.
To allow you to experience and relive the wonders of this unique computer, Cloanto, developers of Commodore/Amiga software since the 1980s, has introduced C64 Forever, a revolutionary preservation, emulation and support package. C64 Forever embodies an intuitive player interface, backed by a built-in database containing more than 5,000 C64 game entries, and advanced support for the new RP9 format, dubbed the "MP3 of retrogaming".
The (free) Express Edition displays an advertising banner in the playback window, whereas the Plus Edition has no advertising at all. The Express Edition can be upgraded (registered) at any time to the Plus Edition level, which features exclusive additional features: disk change commit/undo, saved states, RP9 Editor, RP9 Manager to import, export and rescan content, support for multiple simultaneous playback windows and full-screen mode.
