Any C64 emulators with smooth scrolling?

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

As much as I would love to have a real c64 setup at home like I used to it has just become impractical.

 

I have tried pretty much every c64 emulator that I can find to try to recreate the experience as much as possible but they all suffer from the same fatal flaw. That is, they are unable to reproduce the silky smooth scrolling that the c64 was famous for. Even setting the emulator to PAL at 50Hz and setting my display to a 50Hz mode will result in either stuttering or screen tearing. I have spent a lot of time trying to fix this but I just can't find the answer.

 

Can anyone help me with my problem. It really detracts from the experience when games like Uridium start to stutter when I know from playing them on the real hardware that they run beautifully. I am using Win7 on a laptop hooked up via HDMI to a large LCD TV.

 

I know that emulation will never be the same as the real thing, but it's the only choice I have.

It's all good now. By tinkering with CCS64 v3.9 I finally have perfect scrolling.

 

It's weird though, I had tried this emu before without much success.

Well..whatever the case, Vice works pretty good and has an insane amount of option in easy-to-use menu.

Seconded. VICE is an excellent emulator, and much more intuitive to handle than CCS64 imo.

The latest version of vice has an extra executable file to get much more accurate emulation. That, and the ease of use and "more conventional" menuing system really makes it a winner.

Of course not, but I believe Emulation can be better from some points of view. Like you don't have to deal with the shit slow-ass unreliable 1541 disks. Nor do you have to maintain boxes of "equipment".

Although some games don't like the 'fast loading' option like Seven Cities of Gold and still force you to 'load' at normal speed.
