[c64] Oficjalne WinVice 3.7.1 28/12/2022

Myślisz Vice i wiesz, że będzie mowa o emulacji sprzętu Commodore, myślisz jak szybko odpalić coś na C64 sięgasz po Vice. Vice ma absolutny status najbardziej rozpoznawalnego emulatora maszynek CBM na większości platform, tak samo jak Altirra w wypadku sprzętu ATARI.

Jedyna logiczny powód jaki widzę to poprawki dla wersji dla MacOS'a, poprawki dla podglądu hexdump, może coś jeszcze uda mi się znaleźć to uzupełni changeloga.

Changes in Vice 3.7.1 28/12/2022

  • The good news is that VICE 3.7.1 is now available for macOS, and contains fixes specific to macOS. (Windows / Linux users will not benefit from an upgrade to 3.7.1.)

Changes in Vice 3.7

This is a service release which fixes some regressions and annoyances reported by our users after the 3.6 release.

Changes

  • From now on VICE will write its version into the config file and show a warning message when using a config file from a different version.
  • The binary monitor interface is stable now. Examples of projects using it:
    • https://github.com/GeorgRottensteiner/C64Studio
    • https://github.com/MihaMarkic/vice-bridge-net
    • https://github.com/Sakrac/IceBroLite
    • https://github.com/empathicqubit/vscode-cc65-debugger
    • https://github.com/rolandshacks/vs64
  • Added Debian packages of development builds of the SDL2 and Gtk3 UIs and the headless build (amd64 only).
  • You can find bleeding edge development builds on github: https://github.com/VICE-Team/svn-mirror/releases
  • Renamed all included ROM files to use a more elaborate naming scheme, for example as in "kernal-901227-01.bin". Unfortunately not all included files could be identified yet - if you have related ROM dumps around yourself, please take your time to compare against the following, and let us know if you can identify one of these files:
    • C128 ROMs: kernalfi, kernalfr, kernalit, kernalno
    • Printer ROMs: mps801.bin, mps803.bin, nl10.bin
    • PET ROMs: chargen.de (Wanted in all cases is what the markings on the actual chip read)
  • CRT emulation improvements:
    • uses measured (different) color coordinates for odd/even lines when possible
    • added option for U-only delay line (1084 style)
  • More realistic handling of the case when two paddles are selected at the same time.
  • Keyboard handling was rewritten / fixed
    • The case when two host keys are mapped to different CBM keys with different modifiers is handled differently (correctly) now, so some old keymap(s) may expose detail errors as a result - please report them!
    • Fixed Shiftlock/Capslock mapping
    • All extra keys that are not in the regular matrix are handled in generic code now.
    • used by C128 40/80 and CAPS keys, Restore
    • extra keys can operate in "non locking" mode
  • More realistic behaviour of the virtual drive
    • always return 'files scratched' (instead of 'file not found'), even if the file does not exist
    • More realistic behaviour when mounting images:
    • When attaching a d64 image to a 1571 drive, create an 'unformatted' image for the second side.
    • Create empty tracks for non existing tracks also when mounting gcr images
    • SID fixes:
    • use a few more bits for better accuracy when calculating the 8580 filter DAC values.
    • fix filter ringing/self oscillating with 6581 and 8580
    • CIA fixes:
    • Improved the CIA shift register.
    • Fix the case when pb changes value after changing the control bits for pb/pb7 output. Fixes the turn disk space detection of the 'Love' demo.
  • Add SPT (Stupid Pet Tricks) userport joystick adapter emulation.
  • Fixed use of SO_REUSEPORT on server sockets - this allowed multiple VICE instances to bind to the same port, with an indeterminant one receiving each incoming connection. Now uses SO_REUSEADDR instead, which allows use of a port that remains in the TIME_WAIT state after a previous process closed, but does not allow use of a port that is still in active use.
  • Add DragonFly BSD support.
  • Remove Android support.

build system

  • Rename configure options:

--enable-native-gtk3ui =>

  • Improved the sound output by reworking parts of the VIA, in particular as related to the shift register and the CB2 output.
  • Sound made by "manual" control of the CB2 output now works.
  • Added an adjustable low-pass filter to the sound output, since different speakers on real hardware behave quite different in how much they "muffle" the sound.
  • Fixed and document PET layout and US/DE keymaps.
  • Added pictures of the PET layout and keymap (graphical+business, symbolic+positional, DE+US) to the docs.

VSID fixes (Gtk3 only)

  • Properly update the mixer widget with the current SID model when playing a (subt)tune.

→ [c64] Oficjalne WinVice 3.6.1 24/01/2022
Vice w wersji z interfejsem GTK (od dwóch wersji mamy do wyboru port SDL i GTK) - trudno mu zarzucić braku elastyczności, jednak jakoś tak wolałem starszy interfejs.

Changes in Vice 3.6.1

This is a service release which fixes some regressions and annoyances reported by our users after the 3.6 release.

general
  • Fixed sound buffer underrun behaviour, it will now cause a small glitch and no longer disable sound or flood the log with warnings.
  • Do not write the log to a file instead of stdout when stdout is already  redirected to a file or pipe, so we can do just that on the shell.
  • At exit, put quotes around parameters of the regenerated command line options so eg filenames with spaces in them will not break it.
  • Suppress warnings about duplicated labels when playing back monitor commands to make mrsid a happy bunny.
  • For cartridges that contain RAM that can be loaded from (and saved to) a file, do not init RAM on powerup if backed up by a file (mimic battery backup).
  • Do not clear the keyboard input when a 'reset' hotkey was pressed. this allows   to "hold" keys when pressing reset, for example "run/stop" when resetting FC3.  
    Note
    that this still is limited by various other things, like the keyboard  mapping and keys reserved by your window manager.
  • FFMPEG recordings now default to mp4/h264/AAC instead of some divx avi bullshit.
  • On smart attach automatically change the drive type also when not autostarting.
  • In some cases the wrong drive was selected automatically on smart attach.
  • Fixed sampler file loading.
build system
  • Version x.y.0 builds will now generate a version number of x.y (no .0). Additionally, support for semver style build labels has been added, allowing versions such as 3.6-beta, 3.6.1-beta, etc.
  • Make configure check for *both* avresample and swresample, prefer swresample.
  • MacOS bindist support for bundling avresample.
C64 fixes
  • Added belgian/dutch keymap provided by sorex.
  • Added support for the 21sec backup parallel cable.
  • Set default ram size for ramlink to 16mb, enable it on ROM attach.
  • Fix ramlink API calls for slot0, add missing ROM image setting to UIs.
C128 fixes
  • Various MMU mapping fixes.
GTK3 fixes
  • Tracked down and helped fixing an upstream GTK bug that made VICE crash on any keypress under certain conditions, making VICE work again for Jazzcat :)
  • Fixed default joystick/gamecontroller mappings on Windows/Linux/MacOS.
  • Fixed mapping logic to handle multiple events and duplicate mappings correctly.
  • Allow negative coordinates for windows, this should fix restoring the window position that was broken on some multi-monitor setups.
  • Monitor: remember and restore VTE window size and position.
    • Make the monitor window "remember" its position and size between invocations.
    • Allow setting the position and size via command line, using `-monitorxpos`, `-monitorypos`, `-monitorwidth` and `-monitorheight`.
    • Position and size is saved along with the settings.
  • Made joystick/control port tabs only show the extra ports when they are available.
  • Mouse pointer changes shape when hovering over clickable status bar items.
  • CPU speed / FPS settings added to the main menu.
  • Correctly use the LED colors for drives > 8.
  • Fixed drive/tap popup menu labels, only display "#8:0" etc if the drive is a dual drive device in the context menus and directory popup menus. Only show "Directory of tape #1/#2" in xpet, show "Directory of tape" in other emulators.
  • Added statusbar led for shiftlock.
  • Added clickable 40/80colums LED to x128.
  • Added clickable LED for the CAPS aka DIN/ASCII key in x128.
  • Properly update both keyboard debugging widgets on x128.
  • Don't grey-out sound setting widgets when sound is disabled, so configuration can be changed before enabling sound again.
  • Various fixes related to the new hotkeys feature:
    • Allow for a few more modifiers when setting hotkeys.
    • Filter certain modifiers that are only getting in the way (eg numlock).
    • Remove old hotkey from the table when redefining.
    • Make Return/Enter trigger Accept in the dialog, make Escape trigger Cancel.
    • Only show actions that have a corresponding menu item.
    • Use hardware keycodes to figure out the key that was pressed. fixes eg the situation on macOS that hotkeys could not be defined because they produce various symbols.
SDL fixes
  • Fixed mapping logic to handle multiple events and duplicate mappings correctly.
macOS fixes
  • Fixed macOS bindist not working if placed in path with a space in it. Also the runtime cwd will now default to the user’s home directory, unless launched using the CLI scripts in the root bin folder in which case the current cwd will be preserved.
  • Gtk3: added MacOS specific .vhk (hotkey) files.
  • FFMPEG recordings now work on Apple Silicon binary distributions
  • The launcher .app apps no longer require Rosetta on Apple Silicon

Scramble Infinity (5 O'Clock Software, 2021)

 Changes in Vice 3.6

  • We welcome to the team:
  • June Tate-Gans who added the dual screen mode (for x128) to the SDL UI.
  • Pablo Roldan aka durandal, who contributed improvements and fixes to the  RS-232 emulation.

general

  • Warp mode status will no longer be saved in config files.
  • Increased autostart reliability.
  • Changing host audio settings no longer resets the emulated sound chip.
  • Added hardware flow control to the userport RS-232 emulation.
  • Added selection of control lines behaviour for userport RS-232 emulation.
  • Fixes to ACIA hardware flow control, DCD and DSR lines behaviour, register   reset values.
  • (Re-)added tun/tap support for Ethernet emulation, including support for   "capabilites", so it can work without root/Administrator rights
  • "Device Traps" and "True Drive Emulation" can now be selected per   drive/device.
  • Various fixes related to keyboard mappings. For details please read    https://sourceforge.net/p/vice-emu/mailman/message/37380515/
  • Fixed problems related to Caps-Lock and Shift-Lock emulation
  • Added support for piping printer output and RS232 I/O through an external   executable on Windows.
  • Fliplist (.vfl) support tweaked to be compatible with devices like sd2iec,
  •   pi1541 and Turbo Chameleon. Fliplists in the old format can still be loaded,  newly created ones will always use the new format (see manual).
  • Removed pointless "dither" column from palette files and -format.
  • Some improvements in the 1520 plotter emulation.
  • Extend images directly from 35 to 40 and then 42 tracks, as other sizes are  not used anywhere else in the world
  • More realistic implementation of tape wobble.
  • Fixed p64 wraparound.

→ [c64] Oficjalne WinVice 3.5.0

Changes in Vice 3.5

  • This release completes the transition to the new GTK3 based GUI and fixes a bunch of long standing issues (see below).
  • We are looking for someone who can provide stable automatic nightly builds
  • for this will work best on a Windows machine, or perhaps a Fedora server. We tried our best to come up with a solution for Debian, but that didn't work out as intended. If you think you can help in this area
  • please get in touch.
  • We welcome to the team: empathicqubit
  • who wrote the new remote monitor binary interface Roberto Muscedere aka OldWoman37
  • who contributed the new Lt.Kernal, CMD-HD and RAMlink emulations (C64 only)

General

  • Remove explicit support for OS/2, AmigaOS. These platforms should be able to use the SDL port.
  • VICE used to store its ROMs, keymaps etc into $PREFIX/lib[64]/vice, which isn't correct. Now VICE installs its data into $PREFIX/share/vice, which makes a lot more sense. The documentation location has changed as well, now the documentation is installed in $PREFIX/share/doc/vice. On Windows, the binaries and DLLs have been moved into /bin, according to the requirements of GTK/GDK.
  • Emulator timing is now directly driven by the host system audio device. If sound emulation is disabled, timing is synchronized with the host clock. As part of this change, the choice of sound synchronization method has been removed.
  • Emulation now occurs in blocks of time directly related to the sound fragment size. Previously, emulation of an entire frame happened as quickly as possible and then the host system would sleep until it is time to emulate the next entire frame. This means that user input is now visible to the emulated software with lower latency than before.
  • Audio latency is much lower on all platforms, and new lower latency defaults have been set. Users are encouraged to try using smaller fragment sizes and experiment with finding the lowest stable buffer size on their system.
  • Support for changing the emulator timing to target generating a specific number of video frames per second. Useful for smooth PAL scrolling on a 50Hz CRT, and also fun for playing games at 60fps to match a typical LCD screen refresh.
  • The default behaviour on CPU JAM was changed to "continue" to better match the behaviour of the real machines. Additionally a "CPU JAM" message will be displayed in the status bar.
  • A "quit emulator" option was added to the CPU JAM dialog
  • The CPU JAM dialog now shows the number of the device whose CPU has crashed.
  • Proper support for dual drives has been added
  • Relative file support on the filesystem device
  • Autostarting works from any drive (select the drive in the attach disk dialog)
  • Added support for 2nd and 3rd joystick button (potx/poty), currently only via keyboard and via unix joystick driver.
  • Added mapping for the THEC64 joystick
  • New LT.Kernal emulation
  • New CMD-HD emulation
  • New CMD RAM-Link emulation
  • New D9090/60 emulation
  • New icons for the applications.
  • We now use proper binary prefixes for memory sizes. Welcome in the 21st century!
  • Recalculate the palette parameters when the videochip type changes, now we can actually see the subtle color differences :)
  • Emulate a switch present on some compatible datasettes (not the Commodore ones). Turning the switch on makes the sound recorded on the tape audible.
  • Fixed/improved "native" screenshots. It will now work with all videochips and always generate "best effort" results.
  • The emulators will look for the config file at an alternative location first, before looking at the system wide location.
  • for windows that is the location of the .exe files
  • for Linux that is ~/.vicerc
  • Fixed lightgun/pen emulation
  • use poty instead of potx for trigger for magnum lightphaser and inkwell lightpen
  • tweak lightphaser offset against a bunch of games
  • Handling of settings and resources was improved a bit:
  • always reset resources to default before loading a settings file
  • new "-addconfig" option (or "load additional settings") loads additional resources from a file without resetting to defaults before. this can be used to keep custom setups separate from the regular settings.
  • Fixed sysfile search path order. The order now is $HOME/.local -> path-of-binary -> VICE_DATADIR
  • Fixed a bug in .tap file handling that caused some .tap files to not work in the preview widget(s)
  • A bunch of files have been removed from the source tree because they didn't really belong there and/or contained outdated info:
  • hardware-sids.txt, the old info is now at https://vice-emu.pokefinder.org/index.php/Hardware_SID_Status
  • SDL-support.txt, the old info is now at https://vice-emu.pokefinder.org/index.php/SDL_Status
  • ffmpeg-support.txt, the old info is now at https://vice-emu.pokefinder.org/index.php/FFMPEG_Status
  • Another bunch of files were removed because their content was hopelessly outdated and/or could be moved to other files:
  • removed ancient CHANGELOG files. Read NEWS for the recent changes. Refer to the SVN log for the gory details.
  • moved contents from FEEDBACK to README
  • removed INSTALL, AUTHORS, FEEDBACK
  • removed the MAN pages. Read the html or pdf manual instead.

build system

  • Many changes and simplifications were made in the build system, to make it more reproducible and match the expected standard behaviour:
  • Add --disable-optimization (default=no) to make the buildsystem use -O0 for debugging.
  • 'make dist' no longer needs '--enable-static-ffmpeg' to generate a working tarball.
  • Fixed support for the —disable-silent-rules/—enable-silent-rules configure arguments.
  • Added --enable-sandbox-mode switch. This switch will tell GTK3 to use 'native dialogs' so we can properly support Flatpak and similar containers.
  • Added -—enable-cmake to automatically generate cmake CMakelists.txt files for in-tree configured builds. Generating Xcode projects works, and this may allow generation of MSVC project files in the future.
  • Add --enable-desktop-files for creating and installing .desktop files on Unix.
  • Added --enable/disable-html-docs
  • Added --with/without-mpg123 (default=yes), makes MP3-decoding support optional
  • Added --with/without-ogg-vorbis
  • Added --with/without-flac (default=yes)
  • Update --with[out]-lame, make no default
  • Make jpeg and gif support default to no
  • Make using libpng the default, fail unless explicitly disabled
  • Make ALSA and Pulse default to enabled, make OSS default to disabled
  • Make MIDI support disabled by default
  • Make new 8580 filter default
  • Removed --disable-hwscale, always check for OpenGL with GTK3, error out when --disable-hwscale is used with SDL2 Properly report missing tools to generate docs:
  • Fail on missing pdftex when PDF docs requested
  • Checks for makeinfo and texi2dvi (from the texinfo package) and warns in the configure output at the end if they are missing, but will still build VICE. Check presence of other tools instead of silently not using them:
  • Made dos2unix mandatory to avoid surprises
  • Fail if building for Windows and `icotool` is missing. It can be obtained by installing the `icoutils` package. Some features have been deprecated and are now disabled by default:
  • Added --enable-x64-image option to enable X64 image support, which is now disabled by default.
  • Added --with/without-fastsid switch to enable/disable the fastSID engine (default is off).

Monitor

  • Completely new binary remote protocol for debuggers. The older hack was removed
  • see the documentation for details.
  • -moncommands finally work as originally intended and supports all monitor commands now. That means there are subtle differences in how certain things work. one important thing is that by default it will use an initial break point just after "reset".
  • "-initbreak ready" can be used to place an initial wait for "ready", like autostart does, or "-initbreak reset" to break just after reset. For more details, read the documentation.
  • ‘stop’ is no more ending up in recorded monitor command playback files
  • Support `cd ~` to change cwd to $HOME
  • Added 'mkdir' command
  • Aadded 'rmdir' command
  • Aadded "verify" and "bverify" commands to compare memory with a file
  • Aadded optional address to the `screen` command
  • `chis` shows the cycle count as well now
  • Aadded option to configure the number of lines used for chis
  • Aadded option to change the size of the scrollback buffer
  • Added "dummy" command to enable or disable whether break
  • and watchpoints trigger at dummy accesses or not.
  • Check watchpoints in the order they were added, that makes the output in the monitor less confusing when more than one watchpoint triggers at a time
  • Show rasterline and cycle in both decimal and hex
  • Add 'q' as a shorthand for 'quit'
  • Improvements to the char/sprite display
  • use # over * for more contrast, show the memory value(s) alongside binary view and fix bug showing multiple sprites
  • "list", "load" and "save" do now work with the filesystem device
  • Drive numbers are now expected to be decimal
  • Add monitor dump function to m6821 core
  • Added info on head position/status to VIA io dump
  • The display now (optionally) refreshes after each monitor command. this is not cycle exact right now (only per scanline).
  • Fixed accessing cartridge memory
  • Improve expansion port mode status output
  • Fix io command to shows IO space in address order

vdrive

  • The filesystem device now uses shortened filenames by default to increase compatibility.
  • Disallow to silently overwrite existing files (optional, default is "no")
  • Implemented "save @" to overwrite files (but do not simulate the well known related bugs)
  • Basic support for REL files in the File System Device. (Using P00 format, or rather R00, is recommended)
  • Fix some BAM track allocation issues in 8050/8250 disk images
  • Avoid DISK FULL with 27 blocks free on .D80 / .D82.
  • For D80/D82 images, when reading the directory, use the correct block to fetch the disk's name from. This corrects a bad disk name in directory listings when using a vdrive.
  • Added proper creation of d1m, d2m and d4m images, the resulting image has 1 native partition spanning the entire disk.
  • When formatting or validating an 8050 or 8250 image, the header sector wasn't flagged as allocated. This resulted in VICE hanging when creating more than 80 files on the disk.

True drive emulation

  • More realistic modelling of the floppy drive wobble
  • Changed lower limit for drive RPM to 260 and upper limit to 340 (ie +/
  • 40). This is slightly more than possible with a real 1541.

CPU fixes

  • Prevent IRQ/NMI from being served by the CPU when it has JAMed
  • Perform all "dummy" accesses also in the non "sc" core
  • Changed magic constant for LAX#imm to 0xEE as required(!) by wizball

VDC fixes

  • Emulate VDC's internal buffer, issues with RFOVDC plasma part are fixed
  • Several fixes for interlace, now vdcmodemania interlace parts all work and soci VDC test #5 works
  • Improved VDC-FLI handling, 3 byte attribute offset doesn't always apply, fixes vdc-mcm demo and vdcmodemania fli part
  • Fix issue with wrap around of VDC ram affecting vdcmodemania fli part
  • Fixed VDC reg #28 bit #4, it sets the addressing mode, it does not actually reflect the amount of ram installed.
  • Correct aspect ratio for PAL or NTSC
  • Screen is resized automatically on PAL/NTSC change
  • Corrected size of saved screenshots or videos
  • Correct handling of unused bits in some registers
  • Corrections and enhancements to monitor "io d600" dump

    • The polish 'Blackbox V3' cartridge
    • The polish 'Blackbox V4' cartridge
    • The polish 'Blackbox V9' cartridge
    • The 'REX RAM-Floppy' cartridge
    • The czech 'BIS-Plus' cartridges (2,4,8kb variants)
    • The polish 'SD-BOX' cartridge
    • The 'MultiMAX' cartridge
    • The argentinian HERO bootleg cartridge
    • The "GMod3" cartridge
  • Action Replay fixes:
    • When reading from IO1 area when AR5 is enabled, the value currently on the bus will get written to the register, causing the famous bug/crash
    • Handle the broken mode 0x22 and emit a warning on potentially problematic reads
  • Retroreplay fixes:
    • Allow reading back the status of the freeze button
    • Fix reads from IO1 when the clockport is not active.
    • Handle the somewhat broken mode 0x22 like on real retro replay
  • Nordic Power fixes:
    • Fix writing to cartridge ram in mode 0x22

C128 fixes

  • FD2000/4000 work again, including burst mode

VIC20 fixes

  • Added handling for 32k cartridge files that contain blocks 1,2,3 and 5.
  • Fixed megacart nvram addressing
  • External audio filter fix

PET fixes

  • Teach VICE where BASIC 1 keeps the current screen line address, so that Autostart works.
  • Made the UK business keyboard the default and moved it to the top of the list of keyboards. This makes the default setup work with the keymaps and editor ROM we have in VICE.
  • For CRTC-less PETs, use screen setup values that work out to 60 Hz refresh.
  • Tuned the display timing values for non-CRTC PETs
  • Renamed PET ROMs to include their part number (in line with Zimmers). This should make it more clear which editor ROMs exist.
  • The 4032B model used a wrong Editor ROM

SDL fixes

  • Implemented mouse pointer auto-hiding
  • Remember last position in the main menu
  • Several Keyboard mapping fixes:
  • Fix (some) plus4 keymaps
  • Some pet keymap fixes
  • Updated/fixed symbolic mapping for italian keyboard
  • Some tweaks to symbolic keymap for german layout (plus4)
  • Added keymap from/for BMC64 (c64)

GTK3 fixes

  • Almost all causes of stuttering / audio glitches when interacting with the UI have been resolved.
  • Cairo is completely gone, all major platforms use their native rendering backend
  • Added hotkey "pause" to generate a screenshot from current canvas using a generated filename in the current working directory
  • Rearranged cartridge/io settings around a bit. not perfect yet, but probably better than before
  • Add optional hiding of VDC display
  • Make double-clicking on the emulated screen switch fullscreen mode
  • Alt+Enter will now also toggle fullscreen mode
  • Added option to pause the emulation when settings dialog is open
  • Remember not only the last directory but also the last file in file dialogs
  • Show "Use Alt+M to disable mouse grab" in window title if mouse grab is active
  • Support 'StartMinimized'/-minimized
  • Added 'restore window geometry' to UI and commandline to allow users to apply/ ignore the last position/size of the window(s) stored in vicerc/vice.ini.
  • Allow for 8 'analog' controllers on Linux
  • Added Alt+Shift+F12 VICII to switch border mode in x64sc
  • Moved the netplay settings from the 'File' menu to the settings dialog
  • Added 'Host' root node in the settings UI, move Autostart, Monitor, Netplay, Snapshot/Event/Media recording directory and start-mode under that.
  • Also move Host->Machine settings (CWD and JAM-action) under Host, remove the Host->Machine node.
  • Use workaround for GTKFileChooser's "Select" button not being active when selecting/creating a directory.
  • Several Keyboard mapping fixes:
  • Added keymaps for THE64 keyboard
  • Updated keymaps for pet graphical keyboard

  • Fix (some) plus4 keymaps
  • Added positional keymap for Swedish keyboard
  • Fix ctrl and cbm mapping (c128)

macOS fixes

  • VICE GTK performance on macOS is now excellent and we finally now recommend the GTK build over the SDL build.
  • macOS bindist now relies on macports rather than homebrew. With macports it’s possible to build deps from source while targeting an older macOS version, which allows us to continue to support macOS 10.9+.
  • Re-enabled the bafflingly disabled working macOS joystick code
  • Actual macOS game controller device names are now listed instead of 6x “Analog joystick n”

c1541 fixes

  • Added some REL file support
  • support for REL files to the c1541 COPY subcommand
  • Add subcommand to show dir entry of a file, and all side sectors.
  • Add support for SEQ and USR files for the -extract command
  • Renamed `zcreate` command to `unzip`. 'unzip' (dissolve a zipcode archive) sounds more logical than 'zcreate'. When we decide to also support creating zipcode archives, a proper name for that could be 'zip' or 'zipcode'.

petcat fixes

  • Added missing basic v4 tokens for cbmII

Changes in Vice 3.4

We are still looking for dedicated maintainers for the Windows port, if you want to help improving these and/or want to provide binaries, please get in touch. We also needs support in fixing the various keyboard mappings, please test the keyboard in your favourite OS and port and report any problems. We welcome dqh in the team, who will take care of the macOS port.

General

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

  • 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" work.
  • 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 optional.
  • 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 around
  • 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 fullscreen
  • 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 available
  • 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 instructions
  • fixed macOS make bindist when building out of tree
  • Added instructions for building and debugging using Xcode

→ [c64] Oficjalne WinVice 3.2.0
Gradius (a.k.a. Nemesis) (Konami Ltd., 1987)

Changes in VICE 3.2

General

  • New (experimental) GTK3 native port, this and the SDL(2) port will replace all other ports (which will get removed) in VICE 3.3 and onward.
  • Handling of the `-keybuf` command now works properly for all emulators and RAM sizes.
  • Fixed handling of LOAD"$$" with virtual devices.
  • Fixed @CD, @MD and @RD commands for virtual filesystem devices.
  • Fixed NEOS Mouse emulation.
  • Call the new CIA "8521" instead of "6526A" (which is wrong) in the UIs.
  • Added 4sid support.
  • Fixed tape wobble.
  • Erase timing fixes in flash core.
  • Don't allocate sectors on tracks > 70 in the BAM of 1571 images.
  • Ethernet emulation: fix register mapping in rr-net mode.
  • reSID: fixed envelope bugs shown by testprogs/SID/env_test/.
  • Fixed 6509 CPU port issues.
  • Added support for TAP virtual network interface.
  • Fixed drive clock overflow. Drive and host went out of sync on clock overflow (every ~4G cycles), which would break loading or custom drive code in the case loader/stuff is not idle during overflow window. Also drive would execute ~4G cycles out of sync, which made the emulator freeze for a while.

Monitor

  • Fix monitor 'm' command buffer overflow.
  • Added conditional on values in memory to breakpoint handling.

SDL changes

  • Cosmetic overhaul of the SDL UI.
  • New drag'n'drop support for the SDL2 port(s).
  • Fixed monitor display of printables with the 'M' (memdump) command.
  • Fixed drive status display in statusbar.
  • Added "advance frame".
  • Disable the mouse pointer unless we really need it.
  • Change MacOSX SDL menu key to F10 to accommodate old MacBooks etc.
  • Change default menu key for sdl amiga based platforms to 'F10'.
  • Added default hotkey files (with hotkeys similar to existing GUIs).
  • Added various keymaps for use with keyrah in combian/retropie.
  • Added controller mapping file for PS3 controller.

Android changes

  • Do not enable mouse emulation by default.

Mac OS X changes

  • Reinstated the Cocoa UI's Video Settings dialog. Some of the controls don't work properly, but it's better than nothing.
  • Added a PET model selection menu to the Cocoa UI.
  • Fixed Cocoa UI's CPU memory window display. It still requires the monitor to be activated before it will show anything, however.

OS/2 changes

  • Removed native OS/2 port. The native OS/2 port has been lagging behind severely, and the recently added SDL OS/2 port is up-to-date, making the unmaintained native OS/2 port obsolete.

C1541 changes

  • Fixed illegal characters in filenames for the read and extract commands.

C64(SC) changes

  • Fixed enabling/disabling memory expansion hacks.
  • New tapecart emulation.
  • Added waasoft dongle emulation.
  • Fixed initial cpuport data.

  • plus60k memory write fix.
  • Fix plus256k emulation.
  • Added fmopl (sfx sound expander) timer support.
  • Fixed saving of GMOD2 cartridge image.

C128 changes

  • New tapecart emulation.
  • Fixed MMU mirrors.

CBM2 changes

  • Allow+fix loading of 8k chargen.
  • Fixed ESC-Z/ESC-Y.

Myślisz Vice i wiesz, że będzie mowa o emulacji sprzętu Commodore, myślisz jak szybko odpalić coś na C64 sięgasz po Vice. Vice ma absolutny status najbardziej rozpoznawalnego emulatora maszynek CBM na większości platform, tak samo jak Altirra w wypadku sprzętu ATARI. Lista poprawek spora, ale jeśli ktoś śledzi wersje testowe - rozwojowe, raczej nie będzie zaskoczony.
