Sorry, in general. It's hit and miss if interactive mode freezes or me. I was just wondering if that was unique to me, or if not if any one had a suggestion. Your tool is my main reason for my UART-ing, so I never noticed it before
It isn't real fun if it works on the first try, right?
I haven't looked through the source, but my guess is that the Retro Ltd guys didn't rip out stuff from Vice, that would bee too risky. More likely they remover/changed some of the lookup strings for .vicerc. I notice it doesn'tcomplain about the 'RsUserEnable' setting. So if you're any good at debugging you could try to see where .vicerc is read and see if you can put the 'RsDevice1' back to being recognised. But that's grasping at straws, really.
Also, would /dev/ttyUSB0 not already be in use by the login prompt?
Ok, bad news for RS232. From the ' the64_configure' file in the source:
Hi. I'm looking at the rs232 option of the vice emulator. the disablers232 means that the vice emulator does not have the rs232 itself? I'm not an commodore expert but i recall that the diskdrive itselt is connected with a serial port in the real c64. maybe it is possible to link emulated drive to the serial port used to login with putty
very unluky. i'm diggin in the vice setup. it seem that the floppy can be redirected to a fisical file. P00 files are mentioned, but i can not understand exactly how they work. anyway, if there is a way to read/write files with the emulated floppy maybe it is possible to redirect the read/write somewhere else. using an virtual file system with FUSE. the final setup should be: - a wifi adapter esp-01 soldered to the consolle pins - a fuse filesystem to provide a read and a write file - a redirect from the fuse filesystem and the wifi adapter - a c64 program to read/write to the Pxx files 3 months of work....
I know I'm late to this discussion but has there been any progress on getting the C64 Mini online? I was given one as a gift and love it. However, I was really bummed out when I found out I couldn't get online to check out some of the remaining BBSs that are accessed via telnet. I've sent messages to Retro Games, very humbly asking them to enable this feature. They don't seem interested even though I've seem to come across a lot of people looking to do the same thing. I've had to use VICE to get online.
I figure Retro Games are deleting any requests for this to be enabled. I'm hoping if enough people ask for it maybe they can enable it in a firmware update. I don't have the knowledge or skills to even try what others have been doing. I'm just hoping others will be able to get something accomplished.
My question is what was even the point in disabling any Vice features in their release of the firmware? It would seem to me they'd want to keep Vice as full featured as possible, and being 64 fans I would have figured they'd have foreseen the need for USB devices to do things like use wifi modems. Makes absolutely no sense to me. Since Vice is pretty stable and robust having been around a while I don't think they were worried about potential bugs popping up with extra features enabled, but maybe that was what they were worried about.
C64 Mini and Maxi using latest firmware. Also fixing and restoring Commodore hardware to add to my collection.
Yeah, I agree with you. I don't understand why they'd disable things like that. I think I read somewhere that they figured people who want to get online were in the very small minority. Regardless, why disable it? This has just encouraged me to use Vice more than my Mini. That's kind of sad that their product has turned me away from it and back to free software. Perhaps people need to band together and send a lot of messages encouraging them to enable the ability to connect to networks and as a result, the internet. They're out right ignoring me so I'm unfortunately not able to help. I was even polite and tried to be positive in my communications with them.
Why not just launch a full blown version of Vice via Project Carousel? I'd assume serial usb devices work in that because I think they said things like a mouse for Geos does. Your other option of course is to throw a raspberry pi in the Maxi case and use a Keyra with the Maxi keyboard. The illusion of using a real 64 doesn't get any better than that other than using a Mister board in it.
As for your mini, the new Pi Zero for $15 seems the perfect board for it too. Then just use a regular keyboard. Somebody needs to make s keyboard holder case for the real Vic20 or 64 keyboard. That way people could use them conveniently with the Pi via the Keyra interface or even as a replacement keyboard for the 128 D or SX64. The beauty of the keyra too is it provides two joystick ports.

welshsparky77: Hi I'm new to this so don't know if anyone can help. Using The C64 Tool, I managed to add some games to the carousel using theC64-9_9_9 and they work fine. Tried adding more games, new bin won't work, I press apply and it just skips. what am I doing wrong?
