RPCEmu - Open Source RiscPC Emulator

riscos.info maintains the source repository for RPCEmu, developed by Tom Walker. Peter Naulls did the port to Linux. Chris Williams did the Mac OS X PPC port. RPCEmu is an interpretative emulator of Acorn RiscPC-class hardware. It includes working emulation of ARM6 and ARM7 cores, IDE and Floppy emulation, VIDC20 and IOMD chipset emulation, and other features.

Present limitations:

  • No access to host drives - floppy or optical.
  • No network access.

Developer help wanted

In case you are a developer and want to spend some time on RPCEmu project, this is a non-exhaustive list of ideas to get you inspired:

  • It would be a good thing to have Windows, Linux and Mac OS X ports unified.
  • Address its emulation limitations (like host drive and network access)

Make sure you involve Tom Walker when doing development on RPCEmu.
