Visual Studio Code

I switched to Visual Studio Code today.
I watched a youtube video on how to install java, kickassembler, Vice and C64Debugger.

I use this little test:
* = $0801

* = $0810 "Start"

    inc $d020
    inc $d021
    jmp Entry

When I press F6 (build and run) the prg is succecfully build but it won't start Vice. Do I need to fill in ths field: 'Runtime options for your emulator' ??

Also Shift+F6 (build and debug) starts C64Debugger and loads the .prg but it doesn't start it...
These are the prefilled runtime options for the debugger '-wait 2500 -autojmp', do I need other/more options ?

thx for any help.

Both of your *= are actually redundant. Take a look at the macro definition for BasicUpstart2 in the autoinclude.asm file inside the KickAss.jar file.
That aside, it works regardless.
I'm assuming you're using Paul Hocker's extension for VSCode, so make sure that all your paths are fully defined paths to the relevant exe files without any env expansions or quote chars.
No options are required to be specified, but for e.g. Vice, the relevant config file for your pointed to Vice installation is being used, so check it's autostart settings.

Thx Devia!

I know about the *=, its just a (good?) habbit :)

I installed Vice 3.5 (instead of 3.1) and linked to fullpath\x64sc.exe and it works...

In C64Debugger I do a Hard Reset and reload the prg with ctrl+l and it also works ...

so I guess Doc will ask me to start coding again :p

you need to make sure you have the exact paths to the following:

kickass java-file
java runtime

for me i had to make sure the drive letters were all lower case for them to work.
