Changeable emulation speed
Configurable CPU architectures
Non-graphical configuration (for automation)
Custom machine.lua

I found a bug! How I can report it?

Please create an issue on our issue tracker. Or just tell us on IRC: #cc.ru at irc.esper.net.

What are the emulator's hotkeys?

The help bar at the bottom shows actions you can perform on the hovered element.

In addition, there are a few "hidden" hotkeys:

F1 Toggle a UI layout debug view

F2 Toggle a FPS counter

F3 Reload the workspace

F4 Show a profiler window

How do I resize a screen window?

Just drag the bottom-right corner of the window. It will be scaled in discrete steps: 1:1 (100%); 1:2 (50%); 1:4 (25%)... To enlarge the window beyond 1:1, press Shift while dragging.

I get a weird error saying something about an inconsistency detected by ld.so

That's a known problem with our dependency, LWJGL2, on Java 9 and newer. As a workaround, launch Ocelot Desktop on Java 8.
