The only "8-bit" Commodore computer missing in VICE is the C64 - DTV. Jason Winters has made a wiki to add the C64 - DTV support to VICE. The DMA engine, DTV opcode, memory banking, verbessert VIC-II and the Blitter are implemented. There are a few things to do but most DTV demos are already running.

TRSi made a demo for the C64 DTV. If you have a hacked DTV you can enjoy this great demo. If you don't have one you can watch the movie (avi).

This page has a repository of games that have been hacked / patched for the DTV. Hopefully the DTV hacking community will contribute in order to make this the one-stop-shop for games to put on your DTV and Hummer. So why do the games need to be hacked for use on the DTV? Some games requires use of keyboard for starting the game, during the game, or at the high score list but also there are games that do not run on DTV hardware. The list is about 40 games long with classics like Giana Sisters, Pacman, Donkey Kong, Break out and many more.

This is the normal C64-basic extended with DTV-specific features and a RAM-disk. The basic makes use of banking techniques so that the extended features doesn't use any extra memory in the "normal" memory range. This program is still in development but you can download the Beta version from the web site.

Peter Wendrich has published the first C64 PAL core that is not considered to be alpha any more. CPU registers $0000 and $0001 are fixed now, CIA timers / TOD registers fixed, IRQ/NMI timing fixed. Peter is now accepting bug reports under the eMail address mentioned in the readme file. Tobias Gubener has released a new system flash that can now emulate a 1541 drive. The 1k30 FPGA can be fed with a new rom file containing the drive emulation code. Every core that uses the IEC port can make use of the emulation. Just hit F8 to get to choose the D64/PRG file.

Peter Wendrich is pumping out PAL cores faster than you can test them. CPU, all normal opcodes work and some illegal opcodes too. VIC-II is cycle exact but still a few little problems with the side borders. ROM's and PLA are fully emulated. CIA is not complete yet. SID is improved in this version.

Dennis van Weeren was present on the Codex Alpe Adria 2006 in Italy. He gave a demonstration on his minimig. His project won second place a C-one. When he's done with his minimig he can do a C64 in his C-one. If you want to listen to his demonstration check out the website.

A new update of the C64 PAL core by Peter Wendrich. Finally, games can be played! Sprites work, collisions between sprites and sprite/characters are properly recognized, and it should be cycle-exact now. The flickerfixer has been improved, and should work with all monitors now that support 50Hz vertical rate.

Adam released a tool to change the Flash-ROM in your DTV-2. This (DOS) program will build a FLASHFS.BIN containing files in the text file you specify. But be careful flashing your DTV. One mistake and you will have a paperweight.

Peter Wendrich has finished the next Alpha version of his C64 core called FPGA64. The new core can now be switched between PAL and NTSC by pressing F12 on the PS2 keyboard. Also, there has been a change in the VGA display that should get rid of the "rolling picture" phenomenon. The MMU of his CPU has also been debugged, it now works as described in the docs. The core still has no correct sprite display, but Peter is getting close. As always, Peter is giving out his complete source. Follow this link to the download page, where we have prepared two archives for you; One with only the binary, and the other with binary and source files for the free Altera Quartus FPGA development software.

When the sale started of the PAL version many people started the hacking. Daniel Kahlin did some fine work in discovering the secrets of the PAL DTV. He has written a program to change the ROM inside the PAL DTV. But how is it possible to change the ROM? It's actually a Flash ROM like the memory in a digital camera. The program works but be careful. If you use it the wrong way it will erase your entire DTV.

It had a bit of a slow start. But the PAL version of the C64 DTV is hacked. On the forum of dtv-hacking you can see where the connections of the disk drive and keyboard need to be made. Booting to BASIC is a bit different, hold down the CTRL instead of the K while turning on your DTV. Check the forum for more news about the C64 DTV.

Yes there is a third version of the C64 DTV. After the NTSC and the PAL they came up with something very different. Some one made a Hummer simulator with the use of DTV technologie. It's sold by RadioShack for about 25 Euro's.

Peter Wendrich has published a new Alpha version of his C64 core. This time the CPU has experienced a few updates (decimal mode and a few illegal opcodes), and an experimental MMU is included now that will be useful for future expansions like using the SD-Ram, which is much bigger than any 6502 processor can handle without additions to the hardware. Still no sprites in the VIC.

The Dutchman Peter Wendrich had already published a PAL C64 core for a Xilinx FPGA but now he has ported it to the C-One with a bit of help from Tobias Gubener. There is a long way to go as this is still an alpha version. It's missing sprites but has a working IEC bus and can access the real SID.
