Versatile Commodore Emulator
  20 reviews

VICE emulates well the hardware of the Commodore Business Machines of the pre-Amiga era. Supported are the various Pets, the VIC-20, the Commodore 64, the Commodore 128, the CBM-II series, and the PLUS/4.

Some alternate keywords for the above: VIC20, C64, C=64, C64 DTV, C128, C=128, CBM-500, CBM-600, CBM-700, PLUS4 .

This package does not contain the various ROM images needed to actually use the emulators; they are available separately from other locations (see the README.ROMs file). A corporation in the Netherlands called Tulip holds the copyrights to the ROM images, and redistribution is not permitted, but VICE itself is unencumbered.

Need to download the ROM images from the source code and copy over, but once you do ... so many memories C64

No worky-worky. Tried each one individually, nothing at all. Not a window, not a busy cursor, nothing. (Don't actually know if busy cursors exist in Linux Mint.)

It does not start and run. I have a fresh install of Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon 64, And this Emulator does not run. So I give bad review.

Works fine, just needs roms for C64 etc, get them from Windows release and stick them in appropriate folder in home-folder!
