      It runs on Linux quite well with Wine, too. I found it easier than getting any of the native Linux Apple emulators setup–though I was unable to add any other repositories to my machine at the time.

      The best feature, to me, is the ability to fix the white text on color games. It will fix those edges caused by using composite color mode. I do wish it would also work for black text on white, though.

      Also, it could use better scalers, so you could resize the window to be whatever you want, instead of only exact multiples of the screen. Also, it’s just fun to use those other scalers on old stuff.

      I run the COCO online emulator often myself.  I do so so that I can play one of my favorite games when I first got my COCO 2 (Megabug).   lol

      I run the standalone java jar file.   🙂
