Hello everyone. My problem is my emulator keeps pausing every 2 seconds. If I go to the blue screen, and hold down my cursor using one of the arrow pads, it will move and then "pause" every couple of seconds. This happens during gameplay as well.

I am using Windows XP Professional. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That sounds like a few things. Is it only for the emulator?

Yes, it is only the emulator.

Any ideas? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

The latest version I have is 3.0 at http://www.computerbrains.com/ccs64/


Is there a newer version, like 3.5?

No, this is the newest version.
Do you resize the window CCS64 is running in? The best is to test it with a normal-size window (Alt-V, set screen mode to Window. If this works good, try Window 2x or various Full-screen modes.
Don't try to resize the window with the mouse, you will loose MUCH performance.

You can press Ctrl/Alt/Delete to launch the task manager. In the tab Processes you can see if there is a process that takes a lot of CPU utilization. Maybe a virusscanner of another resident program that slows down the computer?
Try deleting the C64.CFG file before starting up CCS64. When you start CCS64 then, a new C64.CFG will be automatically created with the default settings. Also change the sound output with Alt/O to anything other than MCI sound device.

Possibly you may need a better graphics card, DirectX 9 compatible.

Ok, I figured out what it was. I had to reset the game controllers in the control panel. There was an old joystick (not connected) and apparently that had something to do with it. So I just removed it from the settings. If anyone else has this problem be sure to check your game ports in your control panel settings.

Thanks for everyone's help.
