December 19, 2010 // 11:13 pm - Today I have updated the Vice C64 emulator to version 1.0.3 with Source Code for PS3 JailBreak users.

Download: VICE C64 Emulator v1.0.3 Update & Source Code for PS3


Build 1.0.3:

  • Configuration / Settings can now be saved
  • Menu based configuration now supports some of the more common VICE settings
  • Added mouse support
  • Physical keyboard support improved (still some minor bugs). Added positional/symbolic key layout modes
  • Added ZIP and GZIP support
  • Added HUD options for framerate/speed display
  • Added HUD options for Disk/Tape activity
  • Added multiple disk drive support
  • Disk images can be inserted using TRIANGLE + L1/L2/R1/R2 for drives 8, 9, 10, 11 respectively.
  • ReSID-FP support has been added, providing significantly better audio emulation.
  • Turn up the speakers on this, it's a world of difference.
  • Support for various SID models have been added as part of ReSID-FP
  • Maximum resampling under ReSID-FP is now default, using the original 6581R4 model SID.
  • Fixed a bug when using compatibility mode. Occasionally TDE was not enabled correctly.

Happy gaming!

Muny21, the joystick mapping could be due to some titles using joyport 1 and others using joyport 2. This was an often occurence on the 64.

There are two solutions to this problem
1 - Pick up a second controller and use that (clunky)
2 - Press 'SELECT' to swap joystick controls between joyport 1 and 2 (this feature is only available if a single pad is active, to avoid arguments).

The on-screen keyboard problem does appear to have regressed from a previous non-release build, I will take a look shortly.

Can you tell me what titles didn't work? There are certainly some that will not work even under VICE on other platforms. The solution is generally to turn off "warp-mode" for truly original loading times, if you're willing to wait that long. This will be a configurable option in a future release.

If there is a title that doesn't work on this release, but DOES work on the original Vice (on any other platform) - please let me know.

i can not get this to work. the on-screen keyboard does not even show up. the games i was able to load does not even move. the joystick is not mapped. i understand the dev wants to be the first over areascout but why release it claiming it works when it does not? good proof of concept but not functional yet. thanks for your effort. looking forward to the stable release.

Will you continue to improve this project as well to add zip support or is this it?

Solid Release +1
