More C64 Details Emerge - Keyboard Input, Loading Times
Posted by Damien McFerran
We've been contacted by a mysterious insider who insists he’s on the team that is currently preparing the new C64 channel, which was officially confirmed last week.
Here are some of the things he's spoken about so far:
- Each C64 joystick port is individually mapped to each Wii device (be that Wii Remote, Classic Controller, or GC Pad)
- A popup 'Virtual Keyboard' is featured and is toggled at the touch of a button, and keystrokes are entered by pointing and clicking the Wii Remote
- No loading times
- No loading screens – although if the screen is interesting enough it may be included
While we're pretty sure the chap is speaking the truth, please bear in mind this is very much 'rumour' territory here.
UPDATE: The original forum posts have been edited as our insider is rather worried about getting into trouble regarding this. As a result, we have removed the original forum topic thread. But trust us - what he said is 100% true.
