For those who just want to relive some fond memories, an emulator is a great way to do just that.
Emulators by Platform
- Mocha - By Brad Grier. A CoCo 1/2 emulator written in Java that runs from a web browser. This emulator has been running online for 10 years now and has a vast collection of disk & cassette programs to run
- SDLMESS is a port of MESS to Linux/Unix, Mac OS X, and other SDL supported operating systems.
- The Windows-based VCC emulator has been shown to work under Linux using the WINE virtualization software.
- Virtual CoCo - A CoCo 2 emulator for the Macintosh. Not much is known of this emulator. Here is the link from The Color Computer Archivs.
Mac OS X
- SDLMESS is the current port of MESS for Mac OS X, Linux/Unix, and other SDL supported operating systems.
- MacMESS - Multi-platform emulator that has a CoCo 1, 2 and 3 module. It has been replaced by SDLMESS
- The Windows-based VCC emulator has been shown to work under PC virtualization on the Mac (using Parallels and Windows XP). Parallels is capable of tight integration with Mac OS X and allows the Mac user to double-click on a .rom file from the Mac desktop and VCC will launch in its own floating window running the ROM. It should also work under VMWare.
- CoCoNut - CoCo 1/2 emulator for PalmOS v5 devices.
- Jeff Vavasour's CoCo emulator.
- MESS - Based on the MAME arcade emulator code, this project emulates various classic home computer systems.
