Arnold 1.7.8

Arnold/MacOS is an Amstrad CPC/CPC+ Emulator for the Macintosh. Arnold features emulation for the five different models of Amstrad CPC - namely the CPC464, CPC664, CPC6128, 464 Plus, and 6128 Plus. It can also emulate the KC Compact, a bootleg of the CPC. Arnold features extremely precise emulation, allowing complicated demos to run without problems.

Mac Games Fixes and Changes

Version 1.7.8:
• Audio recording no longer stops when emulator is switched to background, provided that the option to keep emulating in background is on. Recording will still stop if the emulator does.
• Brushed metal mode is now off by default on new installs, as well as existing installs where users press the Default button.
• Fixed an obscure endian bug that resulted in odd window sizes when an emulator preferences file was moved between PowerPC and Intel.
• Fixed several minor visual glitches in the Preferences dialog box.
• Modified the behaviour of the Quick Freeze function, so that the last ten quick freezes for each game are kept in ~/Library/Application Support/Bannister/(emulator name)/Saved States. You can restore these at any time using the Defrost menu command. Added code to stop the quick freeze and quick defrost keys from being repeated. Thanks to David McCabe for the suggestion.
• Replaced custom about box with standard HIAboutBox. Removed option to pause execution when about box is open.
• (Arnold) Added support for automatically loading cassette files.
• (Arnold) Added support for printing from within the CPC. Text only, output is saved to a file on the users Desktop.
• (Arnold) Disk LED is once again five pixels wide. Thank the Xcode optimizer for causing this one.
• (Arnold) The Automatically load games option is now turned off by default, which should prevent inadvertent emulator resets when changing disk on multi disk games.
• (Arnold) Writing to disk images works once again.

Mac Games System Requirements

Universal Binary (PPC/Intel)
• Mac OS X 10.4 or higher

Mac Games Rating Headgehog (7/7/2003 - version 1.6.1)
Four Stars. CPC systems are not used commenly, but anyhow great for a CPC emulator. Plus one star because suzy had good comments but a low rating.
Mac Games Rating Dan (10/28/2001 - version 1.5.3)
I agree with the above comments-but am puzzled as to why Suzy gave it one joystick...
Mac Games Rating Suzy (10/3/2001 - version 1.5)
Many would dismiss this as an ordinary CPC/CPC+ Emulator for the Macintosh that features emulation for the five different models of Amstrad CPC - namely the CPC464, CPC664, CPC6128, 464 Plus, and 6128 Plus, but it is not. It is much more valuable and worthwhile than it appears at surface value. If you use this program, you will gain an in-depth understanding of certain coding modules such as BTSprocket, NV Line, GammaPlus, N-Port Assembly, and many others, in addition to many other valuable programming experiences. Enjoy!
