VICE, the Versatile Commodore Emulator

Background

VICE is a program that runs on a Unix, MS-DOS, Win32, OS/2, BeOS, QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x, Amiga, 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, practically all PET models, the PLUS4 and the CBM-II (aka C610/C510). An extra emulator is provided for C64 expanded with the CMD SuperCPU.

Directories

The VICE cores' internal core names are:

  • vice_x64
  • vice_x64sc
  • vice_x128
  • vice_xcbm2
  • vice_xcbm5x0
  • vice_xpet
  • vice_xplus4
  • vice_xscpu64
  • vice_xvic

The VICE cores save/load to/from these directories.

Frontend's Save directory

  • 'content-name'.nvr (VIC-20 Mega-Cart cartridge battery save)
  • vice_printer.txt (Printer output in ASCII)
  • vice_work.d64 (Work disk in D64 format)
  • vice_work.d71 (Work disk in D71 format)
  • vice_work.d81 (Work disk in D81 format)

Frontend's State directory

  • 'content-name'.state# (State)

Geometry and timing

  • The VICE cores' core provided FPS is calculated accurately, but are approximately 50 for PAL and 59.940 for NTSC
  • The VICE cores' core provided sample rate is 22050/44100/48000/96000 Hz
  • The VICE cores' core provided aspect ratio is automatically set based on core options

  • The VICE C64 core's base width is 384

  • The VICE C64 core's base height is 272 for PAL, 247 for NTSC

  • The VICE VIC-20 core's base width is 448 for PAL, 400 for NTSC

  • The VICE VIC-20 core's base height is 284 for PAL, 234 for NTSC

M3U and Disk control

When you have a multi disk game, you can use a M3U playlist file to be able to change disks via RetroArch Disc Control interface.

A M3U file is a simple text file with one disk per line (Wikipedia).

Example:

Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems).m3u

Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems)(Disk 1 of 3 Side A)(Game).d64
Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems)(Disk 1 of 3 Side B)(Surface).d64
Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems)(Disk 2 of 3 Side A)(Dungeon).d64
Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems)(Disk 2 of 3 Side B)(Populace A).d64
Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems)(Disk 3 of 3 Side A)(Populace A).d64
Ultima VI - The False Prophet (1990)(Origin Systems)(Disk 3 of 3 Side B)(Populace A).d64

Path can be absolute or relative to the location of the M3U file.

When the game asks for it, you can change the current disk in the RetroArch "Disc Control" menu:

  • Eject the current disk with "Eject Disc"
  • Select the right disk index with "Current Disc Index"
  • Insert the new disk with "Insert Disc"

ZIP support

ZIPs will be extracted to a temporary directory in saves, bypassing the default frontend extraction. The temporary directory will be removed on exit.

This allows:

  • Automatic M3U playlist generation of all files
  • The use of zipped images in M3Us

Usage

Default controls

RetroPad button Action
D-Pad Joystick
Left Analog Mouse/paddles
B Fire button
X Space
L2 Escape (RUN/STOP)
R2 Enter (RETURN)
Select Toggle virtual keyboard

Virtual keyboard

The VICE cores have a virtual keyboard that can be accessed by default through RetroPad Select.

The virtual keyboard can be controlled with:

  • RetroPad

    Button Action
    D-Pad Move
    B Keypress
    A Toggle transparency
    Y Toggle ShiftLock
    Start Press Return
  • Keyboard

    Key Action
    Cursors Move
    Enter Keypress
    CapsLock Toggle ShiftLock
  • Mouse

  • Touch screen

The virtual keyboard has these additional actions:

  • STB = Toggle statusbar
  • JOY = Switch joystick ports
  • TTF = Toggle turbo fire
  • Reset (Red key with undo icon, obeys 'Reset Type' core option)
  • Datasette controls (Reset, Play, Rewind, Forward, Stop)

Long press for sticky keys. Stickying the third key will replace the second.

Joyport control

Older C64 games tend to use joystick port 1 and newer ones tend to use port 2 for player 1. There are several ways to switch ports in this core:

  • Use the core option: Quick Menu -> Options -> RetroPad Port
  • Bring up the virtual keyboard with Select button, and press the key labeled JOY
  • Press the default keyboard shortcut Right Control
  • Assign Switch Joyport to any RetroPad button under Quick Menu -> Options
  • Rename the game, eg. Bruce_Lee_j1.tap or Bruce_Lee_(j1).tap for port 1, and similarly Bruce_Lee_j2.tap or Bruce_Lee_(j2).tap for port 2
  • Add -j1 or -j2 parameters in custom command line .cmd

Core options

The VICE cores have the following option(s) that can be tweaked from the core options menu. The default setting is bolded.

Settings with (Restart) means that core has to be closed for the new setting to be applied on next launch.
