VICE- the Versatile Commodore Emulator v3.4

VICE is a program that runs on a Unix, MS-DOS, Win32, OS/2, Acorn RISC OS, BeOS, QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x, Amiga, GP2X, Dingoo, Syllable or Mac OS X machine and executes programs intended for the old 8-bit computers. The current version emulates the C64, the C64DTV, the C128, the VIC20, almost all PET models, the PLUS4 and the CBM-II (aka C610).

This file has been upgraded to 64bit. If you need Vice for 32bit, click here.

Changes in Vice 3.4

** General

- Remove support for Syllable OS, SCO, QNX4, QNX6, SGI, AIX, OpenStep/NextStep/
Rhapsody, Solaris/OpenIndiana and remaining traces of Minix, NeXT, SKYOS,

- Remove remaining traces of support for WATCOM, MSVC, OpenWatcom

- Remove aRts support

- Remove YUV rendering

- Remove generation of .chm, .hlp and .info files. Please use the .pdf or .html

- skip building x64 unless --enable-x64 is passed to configure

- do not use the new/experimental 8580 filters unless --enable-new8580filter
is passed to configure

- update pattern generator for uninitialized ram. changed defaults so all
raminitpattern tests pass.

- remove block device disk image (rawdrive) "support". in linux it was never
needed (just use the device file) and on windows it was never implemented.

- added support for the IP232 protocol that was used by the long lost VICE1.19
hack, and which is supported by tcpser for emulating DTR/DCD (carrier detect)

- various userport rs232 fixes

- always save gifs as gif89

- added a couple shift flags to keyboard maps to support virtual cbm/ctrl and
mandatory pressed host modifiers. not all keymaps have been updated yet.

- ACIA IRQ fix

- create empty half tracks when mounting d64. fixes skew.d64

- new headless port that can be enabled by passing --enable-headlessui to
configure. this can be used to build an emulator without video output, which
may be useful for scripting.

** Autostart fixes

- Implemented autostart for tapecart images (.tcrt)

- Automatically change drive type when autostarting disk images that do not
work with the currently active drive.

- Make AutostartRunWithColon default

- fixed autostart when memory hacks are enabled (plus60k, plus256k, plus4)

- make auto-starting from tape also respect the 'basicload' option, loading
absolute by default

- when using a disk image to autostart .prg files, remove the .prg extension
from the temporary file name

- many detail fixes that make autostart work as expected in all emulators and
in all configurations (eg C128 in 80 columns or C64 mode)

** Snapshot fixes

- More strict checking and more explizit error reporting

** 6510 fixes

- Accurate emulation of ANE#imm and LAX#imm "magic constant" dependency on RDY.
All occurrences of unstable use are being logged now. LAX#imm "magic constant"
changed to 0xEF, which makes the problem cases "spectipede" and "turrican 3"

- fix: reset should set the I flag

** VIC-II fixes

- Accurate emulation of the "VSP bug". Warnings about possible VSP related
memory corruption are always logged, actual memory corruption is still

- Fixed changing more than one colour register via monitor

** VIC fixes

- new noise LFSR as reverse engineered by Lance Ewing.

** SID fixes

- use model dependent floating output ttl values like in residfp

** Monitor

- Support full expressions in the monitor conditional breakpoints.

- When deleting checkpoints, reset the index to 1 when there are no more
checkpoints left

- Added 'RL' for rasterline and 'CY' for cycle in line to list of conditionals
that can be used for breakpoints.

- in mc/ms commands show asterisk for 1s and dots for 0s, not the other way

- adjust number of disassembled lines so the top line does not scroll out of
the window when labels are used.

- Added "log" and "logname" commands to control logging to a file

** vdrive

- added rudimentary support for CMD-style reading of the RTC

- respect error info in disk images (only when reading right now). Should trick
some simple protections.

- report 65535 blocks free rather than 0 so that applications that query
available disk space before saving work as expected, e.g. some BBSs

** C-64 fixes

- added support for MAX Basic cartridge, new CRTID 61

- added clockport device for rrnet mk3

- fixed reading of 'open' clockport, fixed io dump for clockport devices

- implemented support for cartridge hardware revision in the crt format

- When attaching an Easyflash cartridge image, replace the EAPI driver with the
one for the flash chip VICE supports. This way EF images that contain a
different driver (for whatever reason) will still work.

- various keymaps added and/or fixed/updated.

** C-128 fixes

- added proper C128D model type.

- various MMU fixes

- fixed broken memory mapping in C64 mode

- Completely rewritten VDC vertical handling code. VDC101 demo with it's
vdc-split technique is now fully emulated. This rewrite attempts to emulate
more how the VDC works internally, and how the video signal/screen react, so
the border height etc is now more naturally handled.

- Various misc VDC fixes, e.g. show blank lines with certain register combinations

** Gtk3 UI

- Implemented "restore display" (Alt+r). Resets the active window to its
minimal/natural size. Handy when stretching the window and then not knowing
you can make the window smaller again with resizing that same window until
it doesn't get smaller.

- Change double-clicking images in smart/diskattach dialogs to 'open' instead
of autostarting

- added options to select rendering backend and filter

- fixed opening files with UTF8 encoded filenames

- Make the (VTE) monitor display on top of the emulated machine window when in

- copy only used icons into the distribution, which drastically reduced its size

- Added keyboard debugging to the statusbar

- Added * (all files) filter to the fliplist attach dialog. This will allow
people to use Pi1541 *.lst files at their own peril.

- Add proper statusbar messages when using the fliplist.

- Add howto about creating a Gtk3-Windows cross-compiler on Debian with Fedora
packages (aka FrankenVICE)

- only show the host keyboard mappings in the list for which we have a valid
mapping, grey out symbolic/positional depending on what keymaps are actually

- Move joystick settings to the joystick widget on the statusbar.

- Windows: add icons to binaries

- allow better control of the filter settings by removing tick marks
of the sliders and adding spinboxes (6581+ReSID only)

- Fix the 'media recording' dialog to not show empty widgets when FFMPEG support
is missing, show hint on compiling in FFMPEG instead.

** SDL fixes

- make hotkeys only check left alt, which makes right alt (alt-gr) work in
keyboard mappings.

** macOS fixes

- make open-gl work

- binary distributions, font support, GTK3 dock icon

- fix missing icon theme, fixed pdf manual generation, improved build

- fixed macOS make bindist when building out of tree

- Added instructions for building and debugging using Xcode
