Carousel is not part of VICE. It is above it. Think about it as desktop environment.
oh really? dont you say. its a GUI slapped on the core just like other GUIs have been slapped on the core. and yes, adding essential options would be ridiculously easy. if they'd just expose the vice ini for each d64, you'd get swapped joysticks, fliplists and everything else basically for free. a weekend of coding at best.
I think RGL made it intentionally.
dont you say! minimum effort for maximum profit it is.
Maybe they are doing wrong. They should invest in VICE project, to get things works at once.
why would they? they are only interested in selling as much units as possible in a limited timeframe.
as for sam's journey, i doubt it will happen either. so far they have been unable to provide proper specs, implement missing features, or even backport the gmod cartridge. its also almost impossible for them to prevent the official download being shared, so why would they give a damn.
I believe they made TheC64 Mini to make as much money as possible for TheC64,I think that they rushed TheC64 Mini out to early,and maybe the EU version should of had come out in October with the US version cos when it came out on April 29th a lot of sites reviews were slagging it off.
Like the joystick problems with the stick snapping,It makes you think,did they test them of any games at all to see if they can take day to day playing,I think not.
I at first didn't believe they were making The64 cause there was not a lot out there at the time and cos of the ZX Spectrum Vega and what happen to that. Retro Games LTD,TheC64 and Retro Computers Ltd ZX Spectrum Vega,its was run by the same person Paul Andrews but he left when the problems started,and no, he is not my brother, and I don't know if he is heavy..
So to me Paul is trying to make this time round work... thats why we have a USB File Loader now.But I do think that this will be it,cos they are letting you load any disk image you like now.I do hope they do make more updates for TheC64 Mini, like for the Multi Disks and that.
I do hope TheC64 is a success,and people like it,and want to buy it but do hope it's not to expensive.
The Carousel and Vice is one program so Vice code and UI code are in the program with each other cos there is only 1 executable file called The64,thats in usr\bin and the other files like vsf.gz(Compressed save state file vsf),tsg(info file thats a txt file,UI reads this to show game description.)are in usr\share\the64
C64 roms like Kernel are in the lib folder usr\lib\vice. VICE uses alsa for sound so alsa is in \usr\share and usr\lib\alsa-lib is the smixer for alsa. ViCE is running as soon as you boot TheC64 Mini thats how it loads the games so quick it's running in the background so it's multitasking..
I know about the file system of TheC64 Mini and I can't even modify it, dam Uart..Whatever you do DON'T cross the streams... ... HAHAHAHA GHOSTBUSTERS.........HAHAHAHAHAHHHHAAAA...
