VICE is *free* software released under the GNU General Public License, and as such it comes with full source code.

Most important changes since the last version include:

* Changes in VICE 2.0
======================

** General
----------

- VICE development has moved to public services:

- New AROS64 port.

- New QNX 4.x port.

- New HPUX (HPPA and IA64) ports.

- New SkyOS port.

- Improved REU compatibility

- Fixed CPU timing bug introduced in 1.22 (demo "Borderless").

- Fixed bugs in the CIA emulation (demo "So-phisticated", W. Lorenz testsuite).

- Fixed various bugs in VIC-II emulation: Sprite x-positioning, Latch X/Y, video mode changes, DEN bit handling, raster IRQ, NTSC sprites and sprites in full/debugging border mode (list of fixed demos/games too long to mention here).

- RESTORE key is handled differently now, fixing an NMI bug because the NMI was asserted too long before.

** VIC20 changes
----------------

- Added unconnected c-bus floating byte support.

- New more precise PAL emulation, works only with double size and double scan.

** PET changes
--------------

- Added support for toggling CB2 sound output line.

- After a CPU jam user can select to resume emulation without reset.

** Miscellaneous changes
------------------------

- Added support for more 3rd party basic extenders to petcat.

- Extended BMP saving to support 24bit.

- Fixed the joystick code of all emulators to handle state changes on both joysticks at the same time.

- New monitor commands and features.

- New memmap feature which allows tracking of memory accesses, activated by the configure option --enable-memmap.

- Fixed bug in ffmpeg/FFV1 driver. Should be really lossless now.

blacky boy!
some years ago it was a dream to even have vice running under amiga os, today you spoil us with official updates for our tiny platform, and you put up with spot's neverending flow of stupid questions on irc, so here it is, all my love goes out to both blacky / stardust and angel / stardust, you both are one of a kind! :)

I've been spending way too much time lately playing M.U.L.E. on VICE. It's still one of my favorite games ever. I've always been interested in economics and this game has everything. I have yet to see exact copy in a .d64 file. The cracked copies available don't load like the original.

Please give me some names of the games you can't get to work and I'll try to find out what is going wrong.

I have tried at least Gridrunner, but I assume the other games might have the same problem.

The problem is with the memory configuration, Gridrunner will only run on an unexpanded vic20, and the default for xvic is to have all memory blocks on.

To get the game(s) to work you need to switch all memory blocks off, you can do this by going to the settings menu, then choose VIC settings.

A dialog window will pop up, set all memory blocks to disabled and click OK.

Then have xvic do a hard reset, to get it into the new memory configuration.

Then load the game and it should work.

I hope this information helps you out.
