Release id #185343 : VICE 3.4

Since 3.4 Mr Wegi's loader stopped working - it seems to init drive and go idle. Any solution to that? Tweaking settings gives no results.

My biggest problem is the framerate under Windows.

I haven't compiled the latest versions of VICE/resid, but I know from experience that tweaking the floating point settings for resid-fp has a tremendous impact on performance (5x speedup and more). The default settings with the Microsoft compiler will create slow code. If you have VS2019 you can even use llvm/clang.


VICE's build system hasn't supported MSVC for quite a while now. If you want to build VICE on Windows from source you'll need msys2, unless Visual Studio supports autotools projects.

Groepaz pointed me to the cause - virtual devices (emulator settings) must be disabled. Case closed.

Thanks!

How can we get them to do that again then? The bulkyness of today's versions is unbearable. 95% of the daily VICE users must be Windows users.

True. People on Linux use VICE mostly during the night.

1. Become one of "them".
2. Fucking do it.
3. Keep doing it.

What would I do there? Pixel a new icon? Become Groepaz’ personal spacepresser? :D

Been using 3.3, SID emulation sounds more accurate than reSID fp, which I used before and didn't reveal the low filter clickers for 8580.
