Opening a computer

The first action that emuStudio does is loading a computer to be emulated. Virtual computers are described in abstract schemas, which are stored in configuration files.

Computers can be loaded either from the command line or manually in GUI (by default). The “open dialog” is the first thing which appears to a user.

"Open a computer" dialog

The left part contains a control panel and a list of all available virtual computers. When a user clicks at a computer, it’s abstract schema is displayed on the right. Double-clicking or clicking on the Open button loads selected computer.
