Anyone knows what happened to vice.pokefinder.org?

Seems like there is no new build on http://vice.pokefinder.org/ since the 08.05.2017.

I already mailed them but did not get a reply back.

Anyone knows what's up with the site? I guess it's the only site to get daily builds of the latest WinVice?

Nightly builds also fails on my Win10 box with `i 0800 d000`, but it works when setting `bank ram`. I get a lot of non-ascii tokens in the monitor with the $a000+ stuff even causing the monitor to output some text with a red background.

On 64-bit Gtk3VICE, these non-ascii tokens are properly replaced with normal ascii tokens ('.' for non-ascii).

So somehow the 32-bit build doesn't properly translate the data into printable characters and vte fails.

out of curiosity.. is there any benefit on having a 64bit version of vice instead of the 32bit?

would be nice if the site had the 64bit version then aswell.

the benefit is that a single nightly build works on all windows (more or less =P). you should be glad anyone gives a damn to even provide this.

Count zero:

Try setting LC_ALL=C, that appears to "solve" the problem. When using msys2 you can use `LC_ALL=C src/x64`, on Windows with cmd.exe you'll have to use `set LC_ALL=C` before running x64.exe.

So now we need to find a way to set the proper charset inside VICE, ie avoid Gtk3 using Unicode/UTF-8.

got the latest GTK3VICE-3.2-win32-r35685 from pokefinder today and noticed that the "minimum" display size looks somewhat scaled:


f.e. the "r" in ram or the "c" in cyberpunx.

if i took a screenshot/media it looks correct, but this minimum sized display is surely missing some pixels.

..not sure if this is just a windows thing?

EDIT: if i uncheck "keep aspect ratio" is seems to look correct? sizing the window up and then down again still keeps a somewhat proper minimum size. hth?

that stuff seems indeed a bit funky on windows - have patience :) McMartin is currently fixing SDL2 rendering, hopefully he'll look at GTK after that :)

You can find the latest nightly from someone from the lemon forum here:


NB: Actually it's not that hard to build vice yourself from the sources as i always expected. And it works nicely on my system here (though i need to run it on my Nvidia on the laptop, as the Intel graphics are not supported with the GTK or something. Look here:
