This is a port of the VICE C128 emulator to 3DS.
VICE - the Versatile Commodore Emulator - http://vice-emu.sourceforge.net/
As a spin-off to the vice3DS C64-emulator, I ported the C128 emulator as well. Alas, the poor 3DS (even the N3DS) is not powerful enough to run the C128 emulator at an acceptable speed (especially in VDC-mode, better known as 80-colums mode, which is painfully slow - VIC-mode runs so so).
The UI and button mappings are mostly the same as the C64 emulator. Only the soft keyboard has slightly changed and there is a new soft button to switch between 40- and 80-columns mode (which simulates the hardware switch on your C128 monitor).
Currently, only .3dsx-file is available. If anybody finds this emulator useful, I will create a .cia and .3ds file as well.
Download here: https://github.com/badda71/vice3ds/releases
Current version is v0.1
Copy .3dsx file to /3ds/vice3ds on your SD card and launch in HBL
Important: If you have an older version (before 1.5) of vice3DS C64-emulator installed already, make sure to delete the config directory on your SD-card /3ds/vice3ds/config before starting the emulator. Otherwise new config settings, hotkeys and key mappings will not be updated and will not work.
- frequently crashes when switching to/from 80 columns mode
- crash when switching to/from fullscreen many times
- sound distortions when using bottom screen, caused by sound buffer underruns
- 80-columns mode runs VERY slow, sound is garbled due to permanent buffer underruns
