  • Forgotten Worlds and Arhena the Amazon: Special Edition - set to use port 1 so as to only have 1 player in use by default

  • Some games now have custom notes on the control screen! This is a work in progress and more will be added over time.

  • Controls/notes display now has a keyboard hotkey - numpad plus; press numpad minus + numpad plus to display it, then again to go back to the game.

  • Created some new overlays (bezels) - Black Tiger, Retrograde, and Supremacy - these can be toggled between by going to C64 Dreams > C64 Dreams > Utilities > Overlays and starting the relevant .bat. Project Firestart is the default.

  • Group and version fields added to game details spreadsheet. This is a work in progress and more information will be added over time.

  • Created custom Antimicro profiles for Aquaplane, Death Bringer, and Thrust


  • Trimmed some unnecessary files from Retroarch - reduced size by about 150MB

Games with custom notes:

  • Zolyx

Just a reminder, but if you're not using 1080p, you're going to need to change the resolution setting via C64 Dreams > C64 Dreams > Utilities > Screen Resolution Adjustment and then starting one of the .bats. There are options for 1080p (default / complete), 1600x900, 1440p, and 4k. For games that have custom dimension settings (there are 25 of these), the dimensions will need to be adjusted to meet your resolution needs. Launchbox user jophran has made them for 1600x900, minus the new ones that were added in this set, but none of the others are covered. If anyone who has access to a 1440p or 4k monitor would like to assist with this, please let me know.

It's HOKUTO not hokotu

At some point I changed the version for Bad Blood and for some reason the version in the set still has a reference to the old file. You need to go into the C64 Dreams\C64 Dreams\Games\Bad Blood folder and edit Game.bat so that instead of "Bad Blood.crt" it says "Bad Blood.d81" and it'll work. It'll be fixed for the next version. There appears to be something wrong with the specific version of Alternate Reality: The Dungeon in the set. I've found an alternate one that seems to be working correctly - the one from Gamebase64, to be specific. This will be fixed in the next version as well. If you want to fix yours in the meantime, get the version from…

This is really cool. I found that Alternate Reality the Dungeon seems to lock up or just flicker/load after the intro. Also bad blood doesnt seem to work at all. Im just randomly testing. I love the addition of the magazines and sids!
