VICE 3.0 has been released

VICE 3.0 has been released.

VICE is a program that runs on a Unix, DOS, Win32, OS/2, BeOS, Amiga
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.

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

The most important changes from the last version can be found at the end
of this posting.

For more information and download instructions check out the VICE home
page at:

http://vice-emu.sourceforge.net/

This release marks the start of a new release schedule. We will be
releasing a new source version every 3 months. The binaries that will
be built for a new version will depend on the downloads of the
previous version and available maintainer for the port. This means that
ports without maintainers and/or not enough downloads will no longer be
made. This means that this might be the last release for mac os x and
windows, since we do not have any official maintainers (or people
helping out) for those ports.

=======================================================================
Note that some of the binaries are not available yet, we are still
working on them, they will be added to the download page(s) as soon as
they become available.
=======================================================================

The VICE team.

Hey guys! :-) I always compose on a real machine (new SID) and it definitely sounds normal there, at least as normal as I intended. Since I'm a lazy updater I also never encountered any emulation issues with Vice 2.4. When Dano played the tune at Revision (Vice 3.x) I was totally surprised and had no idea what was going on - that was way too avantgarde for my taste ;-)

PS - This is pretty much what it SHOULD sound like:

so, here is an mp3, one side is the audio from that video, the other side is recorded from current VICE (trunk) with default settings.

so, who can tell what is what? =) i cant, i must be deaf or sth =)

edit: the tracks are not perfectly aligned, so there is a little bit of delay/echo/whatever. i'm lazy :)

somehow every time i try "it sounds totally broken!!!!!ELEVEN" things here, it always sounds completely sane. *shrug* (yes there is this this "farting filters" bug - but that does not apply in this case)

In your MP3 everything sounds fine to me, but that's all very far from Dano's "remix". I have no clue what caused the problem there.

Tested it on my work laptop with latest vice from pokefinder.org

The current default settings are ok on both x64 and x64sc.

What killed the song on my ultrabook was my "FastSID" setting i had there. Me was forced to use FastSID all the time as my Ultrabook could not run ReSID due to faulty Intel Win10 drivers.

When switching x64 to FastSID "Defier" is totally broken, not just sounding less good. Switching to ReSID restores normal sound.

Not sure what Toggle uses there what breaks Vice. Honestly i never had such issues playing any tunes the months and weeks before..

Oh, how I love such bug reports :)

I remember trying to track error in my calculations for more than hour just to realise they were for PAL and I accidentally switched to NTSC...

That's a feature not a bug :-)
