Announcement   Announcement : VICE 2.1 has been released
   posted by blackystardust on 19-Dec-2008 22:32:28 (3401 reads)
VICE 2.1 has been released.

VICE is the Versatile Commodore Emulator, it emulates the Commodore C64, C128, VIC20, PET, PLUS4 and the CBM-II, as well as the C64 DTV, and it runs on Win32, Unix, DOS, RiscOS, OS/2, BeOS, QNX, skyOS, AmigaOS and GP2X systems.

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 2.1

** General

- The VICEplus project has been joined with VICE. Thus, x64dtv is now part of VICE.

- We can be contacted via IRC: #vice-dev on freenode

- Added a more accurate ReSID engine using floating point math (ReSID-FP).

- Added support for the USB HardSID.

- PAL emulation has been rewritten and optimized.

- Fixed the ACIA 6551 emulation. (x64/x128/xcbm2/xpet/xplus4)

- Monitor commands help text is now translated too (in ports where translation is available at all)

- Monitor IO command now displays IO area even if it is currently banked out.

- GCR file handling (.G64) issues an error message if the .G64 does not have the expected structure. Before, VICE just silently ignored such files.

- IRQ handling fix

** C64/C128 changes

- Fixed the digimax sound generation.

- Added the RR clockport disable functionality at $DF00.0. Allows to disable the RRnet.

- Improved REU compatibility and timing.

** C64 changes

- Added isepic cartridge emulation.

- Added Double Quick Brown Box cartridge emulation.

** VIC20 changes

- Improved the sound emulation.

- Fixed the lowest note bug.

- Improved VIC emulation (exact in-line color/reverse mode changes).

** C64DTV changes

- New emulator.

Must have a proper play with this soon.
Do usb joysticks work with this under AOS4.1?

Cheers for the update.

P.S Paid a few quid for a Sam and 4.1 and then use it to play The Hobbit.
And I'm really chuffed to be able to do it.
How sad am I?
