Vice with support for the C64 DTV.

This has been in the works for a while.

It's not at all complete, but this weekend VICII-DTV support was implemented so several of the released demos run on it. :)

Get it here for a taste:

Source code + pre-built win32 binary + preconfigured flash image.

Great work! Runs my "Hello DTV World" perfectly!
I also tried some of the effects I have in development for my next demo, and some of them actually worked aswell.

I was not as lucky as Shadow..
Compiled it successfully under Linux.
But x64dtv insists on having kernal,basic and chargen, even if supplied with c64dtvromimage...
As I configured kernal etc, it just crashes at bootscreen.
I s'ppose its just a configuration-thing, tips are welcome :-)

Edit: crash=bootmenu looks broken and doesnt accept keypress
Besides, i have already applied krills border-patches, maybe i should try again with clean vice1.21...

Alright!

Time to move my DTV sources to PC \o/
Although Style's Turbo Macro Pro is quite okay I rather continue coding on the PC.

Btw, did Ghost in the Machine run okay(ish)?

I should try harder, then post here ;-)

Bootscreen still looks broken, but i can enter Monitor.
When entering Basic, though, it seems to crash (light blue border, empty, black screen)

I just installed it on my office pc (xp) and it (patch 62) looked broken too.
I turned off Video Cache in Vice options and now it looks fine.

EDIT: Ghost in the Machine doesn't work =)

"VICII-DTV support was implemented"

obviously then the blitter functions arent => ghost in the machine wont work.

Yeah, I should have mentioned the video cache thing in my first post, I had problems with garbled video aswell until I turned that off.

I've tested more of my stuff, and the biggest problem right now is that burst/skip mode isn't supported. I use this in almost all my code (who wouldn't - it's FREE extra performance! :))
I guess most DTV coders will do the same.

Now I haven't looked at how VICE works, but I can imagine that implementing this will not be easy since it totally changes the cycle behavior of the machine.

Still, this is a great tool to have, now I can atleast do concept testing in VICE and then transfer to DTV to get fullspeed/timing correct.

I reckon only 8bpp is implemented and not the FRED modes?

Anyway, it really looks promising indeed (as a development tool :)

I also suspect segment mapping isn't implemented yet.
Might also be the reason.

I'm at the office now so I can't test :)
