Running Files:
You may run programs in generic CBM prg-format (file extensions ".prg" or ".pet"), programs on D64 disk images (".d64") or BASIC source files (extensions ".txt", ".ba" or ".bas") by simply dragging and dropping these files onto the virtual screen of the emulator. Binary files will be run automatically, while BASIC source files are just loaded in order to allow for an inspection of the generated BASIC program.
(BASIC source files may be both in lower and upper case, case is evaluated on a per-word basis. No attempt is made to translate non-alphabetic PETSCII characters, please use "chr$()" instead.)
For best gaming experiences set the keyboard to "Games"-mode (no simulated key repeat and immediate touch interaction) from the pop-up menu at the bottom of the virtual screen.
See here for some games (with hotlinks to load them into the emulator) and PET 2001 manuals.

Note for iPad users (9.5in): Consider adding this page to your home screen. If started from the there, the navigation bar will be hidden and the interface should just fit the screen.
