VICE - C64 PLUS4 VIC20 Emulator for PS3 is Released!


177w ago - Today Nintendo Wii hacker Waninkoko has released TKC Demo v0.1 at Spanish site TeknoConsolas.es (linked above), which is a PS3 demo for PlayStation 3 JailBreak users.

Download: TKC Demo v0.1 for PS3

To quote, roughly translated: Waninkoko has been working on developing PS3mlib, a high level library that provides application programming for PS3, including all types of basic features for video, audio, controls, camera, events, etc. This library will be released under GPL in a few days.

To demonstrate some of the functions supported by this library, he has created the application "TKC Demo 01", a technical demo for PS3 developed with the legal SDK "PSL1GHT."

This demo utilizes simple graphics drawing, playing sound files (using a SPU) and has support for the Playstation Eye (Eyetoy does not work yet.) You can interact with the application through the controller pad:

  • Up / Down: Increase / Decrease vertical speed TKC logo.
  • Left / Right: Increase / Decrease speed TKC horizontal logo.
  • START: Exit the application.

Finally, below is a picture and video courtesy of PSGroove.

Muny21, the joystick mapping could be due to some titles using joyport 1 and others using joyport 2. This was an often occurence on the 64.

There are two solutions to this problem
1 - Pick up a second controller and use that (clunky)
2 - Press 'SELECT' to swap joystick controls between joyport 1 and 2 (this feature is only available if a single pad is active, to avoid arguments).

The on-screen keyboard problem does appear to have regressed from a previous non-release build, I will take a look shortly.

Can you tell me what titles didn't work? There are certainly some that will not work even under VICE on other platforms. The solution is generally to turn off "warp-mode" for truly original loading times, if you're willing to wait that long. This will be a configurable option in a future release.

If there is a title that doesn't work on this release, but DOES work on the original Vice (on any other platform) - please let me know.

i can not get this to work. the on-screen keyboard does not even show up. the games i was able to load does not even move. the joystick is not mapped. i understand the dev wants to be the first over areascout but why release it claiming it works when it does not? good proof of concept but not functional yet. thanks for your effort. looking forward to the stable release.

Will you continue to improve this project as well to add zip support or is this it?
