Commodore C16 - Plus/4 emulator in development

Commodore C16 and Plus/4 were released in 1984. The C16 intended to be an entry-level computer to replace the VIC-20, while Plus/4 was the flagship computer of the line, intended to replace C64. The C16 was a flop in the US and was discontinued within a year, but it sold reasonably well in Europe as a low-end game machine. Commodore Plus/4 was a flop on both, US and European market.

Commodore C16 and Plus/4 featured a version of the original 6502 CPU named 7501, and a new video chip named TED. With 16 colors, and 16 shades of color, they had an amazing 128 colors available. Their sound capabilities were poor, only a two-voice square wave generator. Despite their poor performance on the market, hundreds of C16 and Plus/4 games are available today.

I've been working on Commodore C16 and Plus/4 emulator for almost four weeks and it is almost fully functional.
