Vice sux these days...

....I am just a lamer so bear with me... music halts, no real frame-rate - full 50 halts now, set settings resetting to no true drive.... a big chunky graphics overlay when looking at demos in full-screen... WHY IS VICE EMULATOR SUDDENLY SHITTY TO THE POINT ONE DO NOT WANT TO USE IT ANY MORE?

It was so stable and perfect before last update... what went wrong? There are so many issues now... all things bugs in all demos and playback...

Will there be a fix it all for people like me that just happen to have a greatest ASUS laptop where everything used to work but now are just total lame in every aspect and can not get it to play right, I ask because last version worked like a charm... So utterly lame update to the latest version.

Maybe it is just me... wait, our coders and everyone have same bugs... such a terrible update... if there are some special setting to be set why do not make them the same as last version? that worked all the time with all demos?

Why no one mentioned the easter-eggs/hidden parts on Poopbirds screenshot?

After Slajerek C64 debugger got released I prefer Vice over CCS even if it's more resource hungry. Video lagging is depends on how many window is open in the background, how long ago the computer was restarted (hello AMD drivers and shaders!) and of course, recent patches. You should get used to it or write your own emulator. (https://preview.ibb.co/mrb9Tb/bigemu.png)

Anyway +1 on the "classic shell" looks, I get lost too on the modern start menu/metro screen... and don't trust the one uses Internet Explorer in most cases.

Maybe because they were very obvious? Though I lol'ed a bit.

btw. with 3.x the winvice became unusable for me too... but the "Use only First CPU" option fixed everything here, it is back to smooth emulation 50 fps now.

stumbled on a weird bug.

if I start vice3.1 with sound playback off, alt+s crashes it. if sound is turned back on before alt+s its fine, and sound turned off again its fine again.
