You can post about PCUAE in here.
I remove the A500 section for PCUAE and added its posts here, it was not really being used, its better if PCUAE has only one area for all the new threads, any old threads will be moved to Old Posts PCUAE when they are not needed no more.

Share your gamelists you have made for PCUAE and the Carousel Gamelist Changer in here.
The PCUAE Gamelists and game files are kept in `PCUAE USB Drive://PCUAE_CAROUSEL_GAMES` folder on the root of the USB Drive now.
You can now export games from PCUAE Manager to the USB File Loader or Classic Mode's Media Access plus its CJM file can now be created in PCUAE Manager too so change the settings of the game too so customise its joystick buttons and set the game to run at PAL or NTSC, so can export the CJM file for each game to the PCUAE USB Drive.
You can export games plus its CJM files this way without installing PCUAE too so just export to a USB Drive and then load it up in the File Loader or Media Access to see the games that you have exported to the USB Drive, look in the PCUAE Manager Manual it all explains how to use it.

No New Posts THEC64 Games With CJM Files for Loader/ Classic Mode

This is for Games that are for the File Loader or Classic Mode and has a CJM file with them.
CJM Stands for Commodore Joystick Manager file, they work the same way as the .TSG(The Sixty four Game File)files for THECarousel), it's so you can customise the Joystick for Port 1 or 2 and if it needs certain keys or buttons to work with THEC64 Joystick Like space Bar can be added as Fire 2 on thec64 Joystick, then you don't need to use the virtual keyboard or use the USB Keyboard or THEC64 MAXi's keyboard to press the Space Bar.

You can post C64 games for THEC64 - C64 Mode here now, post VIC-20 games in there own board now for VIC20 Mode below this one.

Any games for the Carousel post them in the new PCUAE Section and do not flash any games to the Carousel on the firmware, you could make it stop working if you add to many games to it or could damage it.

Always use PCUAE if you want to add games to the Carousel, its safer and you can then always update your machine with no problem.
