The VIC20 is just one commodore system that VICE can emulate, for questions about it, its best to go to the retropie forum.
also chameleon might be for you, see this blog about it. https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/raspbi ... eon-remix/

Unfortunately, as I'm discovering for a VIC-20-mad friend, RetroPie doesn't have a separate skin for the different 8-bit Commodore machines. They're all lumped under the C64 one, and to change the emulator you have to dig into some low-level option to choose xvic over x64.

I installed VICE from source last year, and this is likely to still work:

Code: Select all

# get dependencies - this may take a long time and ~ 1.5 GB
sudo apt install autoconf automake build-essential byacc dos2unix flex libavcodec-dev libavformat-dev libgtk2.0-cil-dev libgtkglext1-dev libmp3lame-dev libmpg123-dev libpcap-dev libpulse-dev libreadline-dev libswscale-dev libvte-dev libxaw7-dev subversion texi2html texinfo yasm libgtk3.0-cil-dev xa65

mkdir -p src

cd src

svn checkout https://svn.code.sf.net/p/vice-emu/code/trunk trunk

cd trunk/vice

./autogen.sh

./configure

make -j4

sudo make install

You could do it on my image.

Download the image here:

https://pilizard.blogspot.com/2017/11/t ... mages.html

Probably want the silent boot version.

Once the image is written to microsd card, before booting, edit the /etc/rc.local file.

Change the line:

sudo -H -u pi /opt/retropie/emulators/vice/bin/./x64

to:

sudo -H -u pi /opt/retropie/emulators/vice/bin/./xvic

the card will then boot directly into vic20 emulation on the pi.

f12 to access the menu

save as for saving settings for now, or if you know enough you will need to change the default permissions on the save directory to allow.

Nice — I've seen your distro run in a 64 with a Raspberry Pi inside talking to a CBM monitor at World of Commodore, and it was very pretty.

TBH, though, it would be nicest of all to have Vic-20 as a separate platform in RetroPie.
