Redirect PCUAE Download

You can now download PCUAE from here, its a direct link to the PCUAE Download Folder.

You can download PCU All In One(pcugm-1.7.4-pcuae-1.4.3-aio-setup.exe)with PCUAE and PCU Game Manager together or download PCUAE on its own(pcuae-1.4.3-standalone-setup.exe) And it will help install it for you too ,it has its own extractor in its archive.
All exe files are Archive files made with WinRAR and are NOT Windows Installers, WinRAR has its own Archive Extractor called SFX.

No New Posts PCUAE Help

I added this so PCUAE has one place so all help guides for it can go in here.

No New Posts PCUAE Carousel's

This is where you can add your own Carousels you have made for PCUAE LIKE.." A selection of games that you can put into PCUAE Carousel" Games need to be in a folder with the CGS name so like call the folder "US_Gold" so you see it in the CGSS screen when you copy it to the Games folder in PCUAE so all you do is unzip it or copy it from the zip file to your USB Stick USB:/Carousel_Games/Games/ folder to add it to the Carousel.

Its so easy now to add games PCUAE.. :)

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.

Always use PCUAE if you want to add games to the Carousel, its safer and you can then always update your machine.
