YAPE is a Commodore 264 family emulator. It's an 8-bit microcomputer family from the once-great-now-defunc Commodore Business Machines Ltd.

They were released as a successor to the immensely popular Commodore 64 supposedly to either compete with the ZX Spectrum or other micros but eventually failed to gain market success and the whole line was dumped within a couple of years. However they were hugely popular in a few countries such as Hungary, Germany or Italy (to a certain extent also in the UK). 


The program features an accurate cycle-exact approach and a high level of emulation. The user interface aims to exploit the potentials of the Windows operating environment. The emulator is written in C++ and is compiled with MS Visual C++. There's an older port to other platforms than Windows (using the SDL library). In the future there'll probably be other ports made.


YAPE was born out of a disassembler project during the summer of 2000 and had been for some time the only actively updated Commodore 264 family emulator. See the Changes.txt for development and release milestones.
