That's cool, but it looks like you have to figure out for yourself where the controls map to on your keyboard. Has anyone figured out how to get sound?

Looking at these stars suddenly dwarfed my own troubles and all the gravities of terrestrial life. I thought of their unfathomable distance, and the slow inevitable drift of their movements out of the unknown past into the unknown future. H.G. Wells

My understanding is the emulation does not include sound.

Internet Archive puts (what appears to be) complete libraries of 70s and 80s consoles online to play in-browser

Currently, there is no sound in the games, although that feature will be added soon.

The 1 key pushes the SELECT switch, and the 2 key pushes the RESET switch. Use the arrow keys to move Up/Down/Left/Right with the Joystick. Pressing the left CTRL button or space bar will press the fire button. Pressing the C key will switch between COLOR and B&W.

Using the keyboard is not the same as being able to swing around the joystick smacking your sisters head trying to get the jet to move faster in river raid.
