Release id #164858 : VICE 3.2

So, finally, we pushed it out. The GTK3 port isn't 100% done yet, but usable enough for testing it. It has a couple known issues and open ends - which are listed here: http://vice-emu.pokefinder.org/index.php/Todo#GTK3_UI - grab experimental binaries here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vice-emu/files/experimental%20..

Due to the massive amount of features, we need help with testing the damn thing, especially on platforms other than linux.

It would also be great if those who offered to set up nightly builds for OSX would step up and do it :)

Quote: Why do 8580 low basses fart that much without digiboost? Unless I don't play $d418 samples, I use 8580+digiboost setting - otherwise it's painful to listen to anything with lows :( I don't understand what happens to sound emulation with each new release - it plainly sucks and has nothing to do with real SID distortion. Sorry, guys - I rarely switch into Ian Coog's school of critique but this is quite frustrating :D

This. It's ridiculously broken.

the one ridiculous thing with those reSID bugs is... that a bunch of people prefer whining (a lot) over doing anything that might help to fix them. guess what will happen.

I'm not able to help unless I know thoroughly your methodology and points of reference in emulating specific parameters of SID ;)

At least it would help if you specify a list of tunes where the problem is clearly audible. The more tunes the better so the problem can be identified more easily.

indeed. for example it would help a lot to have a bunch of standalone test tunes that show the problem. or you could even look through the resid updates and tell what revision introduced the problem: https://sourceforge.net/projects/vice-emu/files/old-versions/

See this post WANTED: older (Windows) VICE builds for details on ReSID commits that actually changed things in the SID emulation.

Some of the WinVICE builds in the dir groapaz mentioned will not be the exact revision due to trunk breakage. So some revisions in the old-versions dir may be a few commits ahead, or I backported some code to get as close to the ReSID commit revision as possible. I didn't touch the ReSID code however.

Is there an build I can actually use on my Windows 10 64 bit PC ?
I don't know anything about makefiles and stuff like that... :(

use the nightly builds from vice.pokefinder.org

(also nice to see that in almost 6 months noone bothered to actually help with those filters. guess its not quite that important then afterall)

Don't know that those values are actually there for, but if i turned that filter bias up to like 2100 from -3000 it sounded way way better on tunes like "loopin" from MCH.

Can't help you with this C thing either. I just know that Vice2.x sounded better, and tools like Sidplay2.6w do too, which are pretty dated. So it seemed to worked some time ago. Who broke it shall fix it again.

Besides that i think everybody who uses 3.2 would prefer a proper sounding Vice again. And if you and the other devs don't care aswell, people will just stick with Vice versions that worked for them.
