13 Frodo accepts a single argument when started from the shell: The name of a
14 preferences file to load instead of the default "~/.frodorc".<P>
15
16 At first, the window for the emulation <A HREF="settings.html">settings</A>
17 appears. The actual emulation is started by a click on "OK". Then the <A
18 HREF="emulwindow.html">emulation</A> window appears in which the C64
19 startup message is displayed.<P>
20
21 To quit Frodo, either close the emulation window, or press F10 to bring up
22 the settings window and select "Quit".
23
24 <H2>BeOS</H2>
25
26 Frodo may be started from the shell or from the Tracker. When started from
27 the shell, Frodo accepts a single argument: The name of a preferences file
28 to load instead of the default "Frodo Prefs".<P>
29
30 At first, the window for the emulation <A HREF="settings.html">settings</A>
31 appears. The actual emulation is started by a click on "Start". Then the <A
32 HREF="emulwindow.html">emulation</A> window appears in which the C64
33 startup message is displayed.<P>
34
35 You can quit from the running emulation by selecting the "Quit" menu
36 item.<P>
37
38 Frodo should be run in a 256-color workspace for maximum speed.<P>
39
40 Sampled sounds are only played correctly if "Limit Speed" is on and "Draw
41 every n-th frame" is set to "1" and if the emulation can sustain 100%
42 speed.<P>
43
44 <H2>MacOS</H2>
45
46 Frodo is started by double-clicking its icon.<P>
47
48 You can quit from the running emulation by selecting the "Quit" menu
49 item.<P>
50
51 Frodo should be run with 8-bit color depth. The "DIR" 1541 emulation mode
52 and SAM are currently not implemented.<P>
53
54 See the file "MacFrodo Notes" for more information.<P>
55
56 <H2>AmigaOS</H2>
57
58 Frodo should be started from the shell. When started from the shell, Frodo
59 accepts a single argument: The name of a preferences file to load instead
60 of the default "Frodo Prefs".<P>
61
62 At first, the window for the emulation <A HREF="settings.html">settings</A>
63 appears. The actual emulation is started by a click on "OK". Then the <A
64 HREF="emulwindow.html">emulation</A> window appears in which the C64
65 startup message is displayed.<P>
66
67 You can quit from the running emulation by selecting the "Quit" menu
68 item.<P>
69
70 Frodo opens its windows on the default public screen. This screen should
71 be a 256-color screen on a graphics card, otherwise the emulation will
72 be very slow.<P>
73
74 The AmigaOS version is somewhat experimental. You need AHI to get sound,
75 but the sound emulation is not very good. It might be better to leave the
76 SID emulation turned of for now. Only one joystick (on port 2) is supported.<P>
77
78 <H2>RISC OS</H2>
79
80 Frodo is started by double-clicking its icon. The shared resources stored in
81 !FrodoRsrc must have been seen by the filer first, otherwise the program will
82 abort with an error. Frodo and FrodoPC need 1344kB, FrodoSC 832kB to run.<p>
83
84 Frodo can be controlled with the menus and the <a href="emulwindow.html">emulator
85 pane</a>. You can load snapshots and native C64-files (which usually have the
86 filetype &64) by dragging them to the emulator window.<p>
87
88 Frodo can be run in any colour-depth, although 16bpp and especially 32bpp are
89 noticably slower than the others. You can toggle between two display sizes
90 using the pane.<p>
91
92 For a lot more information see the file !Help supplied in the RISC OS
93 distribution.
