I have noticed here on the Forum although most of the SD Card Images include C64 emulation (generally employing VICE) there is currently no ‘Stand Alone’ solution.
The latest revision of VICE uses an SDL rendered GUI, the previous one was GTK making it unusable in Console and laborious to use via Command Line for the uninitiated/inexperienced.
For users who do not wish to compile VICE themselves (I would implore you to attempt it though! See FURTHER READING), I have made the C64 Binary available for Download, because, lets be honest, who wants a Commodore PET Emulator? PLUS4 anyone? Anyone!?
Source Code - vice-2.4
Binary Download Link - https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B51Q7d ... sp=sharing
Operating System - Raspbian Wheezy
Over Clock - As with all emulators it is advisable to run your Raspberry Pi at the highest overclock setting that is stable on your system
Additional Files Required - Game Images (uncompressed)
Console or XWindows? - Either (Full Screen/Full Speed in Console at 'Medium' 900MHz O/C)
1. Download the C64.zip from the Link (Select: File, Download)
2. Extract it to your /home/pi Directory
3. Open Terminal
4. CD into the C64 Folder
Type: cd /home/pi/C64
5. Move the vice Folder (this contains all the Drivers/Kernals/Basic etc.) to the /usr/local/lib Directory
Type: sudo mv /home/pi/C64/vice /usr/local/lib/vice
6. Change the permissions of the Binary
Type: sudo chmod +x x64
If you wish to install the Binary (x64 executable) at this time (also leaving a handy empty folder in which to place your Game Images), move it to the /usr/local/bin Directory. This will prevent you having to 'CD' into the folder every time and the Binary can be started without the 'run' command (i.e. just Type: x64)
Type: sudo mv /home/pi/C64/x64 /usr/local/bin/x64
7. Run the Emulator
Type: ./x64 -sdlbitdepth 8 (enables 8 bit colour depth, once your settings are saved ./x64 is sufficient)
Pressing F12 opens the GUI: Load Images (navigate to your Images folder and select one), Sound Settings, Graphics Settings, Joystick/Keyboard Control Settings, PAL/NTSC Output (set to PAL by default) and many other Options.
NB: The default Sound Drivers in VICE are SDL, although functional, performance is greatly enhanced by changing to native ALSA
Select - Sound Settings> Output Driver > ALSA
