Hi!

I've recently bought a new PC and decided to transfer the emulator over from my old machine. Everything is on a CD ROM entitled C64 Classix which I picked up in HMV or Game a number of years back. I'm able to run the Win64 application and load the games but there doesn't appear to be a way of changing the joystick settings so that I can use the keyboard!

I'm confused.

The 'compilation' you mention, C64 Classix, is a few years old, but you also mention "Win64". Is that the name of the executable or the emulator? There was a Win64 emulator, but that's about a million years old now. I assume the C64 Classix CD uses some kind of version of VICE.

Either way, wouldn't you be better off downloading a newer version of VICE from here and any games you really play from here?

If you are referring to VICE then it depends on your computer.

If you are running a version of Windows on an X86 processor then click here...

Unzip the file and run 'x64.exe' - that's the C64 VICE emulator.

That's brilliant! I did have VICE on the old pc but not sure where I got it - I assumed it was on the CD Rom.

I'm now off to play some games.... :D
