Me too. Edit the c64.cfg file found in the same directory as your CCS64 emulator, and find the string that starts with:

$RGBCOLOR0=

Now substitute these values instead:

$RGBCOLOR0=000000
$RGBCOLOR1=fcfcfc
$RGBCOLOR2=a80000
$RGBCOLOR3=54fcfc
$RGBCOLOR4=a800a8
$RGBCOLOR5=00a800
$RGBCOLOR6=0000a8
$RGBCOLOR7=fcfc00
$RGBCOLOR8=a85400
$RGBCOLOR9=802c00
$RGBCOLOR10=fc5454
$RGBCOLOR11=545454
$RGBCOLOR12=808080
$RGBCOLOR13=54fc54
$RGBCOLOR14=5454fc
$RGBCOLOR15=a8a8a8

Much more authentic, IMHO.

...what do you think is the best C-64 emulator. Compatibility-wise, sound-emulation-wise, funky-scanline-vblank-rendering-wise... what do you think?

Have you found CCS64 to be the best of what's available? I honestly haven't used it in a while because it's been 2.0 BETA for as far back as I remember, and I can never keep track of when it's actually changed. I've been using VICE because it seems to be fairly accurate, and they use a sensible version numbering system.

Just curious...

Perhaps it's time to give CCS64 another go... with more authentic colors now ;)



Subjecti use vice.. maybe should give ccs64 a try.. -nt- new Reply to this message

Compatibility wise C64S is no where near the best. However, for me it gave a much more authentic/nostalgic feeling than any other C64 emulator. It plays all my favorites without problems (DOC, GI Joe, Bruce Lee, Friday the 13th, Questprobe, Action Biker, Boulder Dash II), with the expection of Potty Pigeon.

The colors were the best and I liked the layout and menu system (Has a true C64 feel to it). However, it is DOS 'exclusive' based (Does not run properly at all under a DOS window), and since I bought a new PC relativly recently with Win ME, C64S is not an option for me anymore.

Fortunatly, with this 'new' color scheme, CCS64 is my favorite. Furthermore, unlike C64S, the compatibility is fantastic for everything I have thrown at it (Including Potty Pigeon :-). Every program looks and sounds like the C64 now.

Perhaps it's time for me to give Vice a try. I am just the opposite of you. I've been following CCS64 for the longest time, and really haven't given Vice a glance.

BTW, one suggestion I do have is to look at Gamebase64 as a front-end for any C64 emulator (If you haven't done so already). True, it takes away from the nostalgia of loading the game, but it has a cool layout, screenshots and many other tweaks/options. I *really* like it a lot.

There´s one option in Vice you might like:
You can choose your favourite color-palette (c64s,ccs64,frodo,godot,pc64 or vice) under Settings/Video settings/Advanced, be sure to check the Field for external palette. Have Fun :)

...used to use this one quite a bit. Looks about the same as it always has.

Works quite well, though it kept crashing on me at first, until I realized GetRight sucked up all my resources. Serves me right for queueing up a couple *hundred* things to download. :P

Still didn't pass my "perfection" test, though no C-64 emulator has...

My "perfection" test is to run a game called Piracy (*tee hee*), a game where two opposing pirate ships face off with a net between them, and each side sends out an attacking horde of pirates that move in unison to try and take over the other ship. What no emulator has gotten right yet (though VICE is close) is the sound effect when the porthole cover opens, then slams shut when sending out pirates. It's just a little thing, but until it sounds right, it just isn't "perfect"...

Still, between VICE and CCS64, I must say all of my C-64 needs are handily met.
