I was able to map my buttons and now can play NES games well. Then I tried C64 emulation I have mainly 2 issues:
1) I downloaded RiverRaid and IK+. I can’t seem to use the controller and the keyboard except the VICE menu. Also I can’t run it full screen. I tried double size from the menu it grows bu then upper half of the screen is not visible o TV. (BTW I connect via HDMI) I’ve found this (http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=41&t=4581) but I couldn’t manage to get Vice full screen. Does anybody have an idea? Thanks.12/24/2013 at 17:57 #3726
I am having the same issue. I was hoping to get it running as a surprise for the otherhalf (loved to play Way of the Exploding Fist back in the day) over Christmas. Not going to bother at the moment as it fills a tiny section in the center of the screen.
Running it on composite video here. No settings seem to make it work 🙁12/31/2013 at 16:29 #3803
from 0 to 1 in /home/pi/.vice/sdl-vicerc.
After restart I got pretty fullscreen.03/06/2014 at 14:47 #5496
I cant seem to find this file on my retroPie image.
Can you help. I am using ftp to read the sd card and not inserting it in PC.
/home/pi/.vice/sdl-vicerc.03/06/2014 at 20:40 #5505
Can you see the .vice folder? I can’t see the .vice folder when using a ssh client but I see it when using ftp. Sdl-vicerc should be inside /home/pi/.vice03/06/2014 at 21:25 #5510
i cant seem to find this, im using WinSCP.. cant see it under startx either…
i did NOT install VICE, im using retropie stock. I read a thread, seems this works under startx environment. I cant seem to find a 2x video as is.. so i think im looking for somthing thats not there unless you install VICE outside of the stock retropie install.. am i right?
SOLVED IT: Sorry to be an idiot 😉03/12/2014 at 13:48 #5592
hi, how did you solve this?
via Cyberduck, i can’t see a .vice folder in /home/pi/ i see other /. folders but not that one?
i’m running the 1.91 .img setup
i had to create the .vice folder, and googled for the sdl-vicerc file, then edited to my liking05/13/2014 at 02:41 #6762
1) I found the following settings that completely fix the screen size.
$ nano /home/pi/.vice/sdl-vicerc
Change the following line settings:
VICIIDoubleSize=1 VICIIScale2x=0 WarpMode=0
Dev, I recommend integrating these settings changes into the config file! (Thanks to ‘Jeff’: http://ledgerlabs.us/raspberrypi/retropie-fix-x64-vice-settings-for-fullscreen)
2) I can only rarely get music to work. Then suddenly I’m back to no sounds, reboot after reboot. I’m sure I changed no settings since. When it worked it was beautiful… but never again. Any surefire ways to get sound to be reliable?
Other than all the above, it’s great 😛

I put my raspberry pi in an old Commodore C64 case using the keyrah 2 interface.
Everything works fine, but I can’t fix the the screen size.
Changing the video settings to “double size in the emulator leads to a crash.
The settings in “sdl-vicerc” mentioned above
can’t be changed because they don’t exist anymore. (New Version of Vice/Retropie ?)
I am using the svideo output, the overscan is properly configured to match the screen size.
Where is the lucky guy (or girl) who got C64 emulation working in fullscreen ?
Please get in touch with me !01/11/2015 at 20:44 #84984
Problem solved !
I installed the runcommand-script: sudo ./retropie_packages.sh runcommand
When starting “vice” press “x” or “m”, then you can select the desired video mode, for me this is PAL 4:3.
The game started in fullscreen and the ingame video-settings work properly.
And the emulator even won’t crash on exiting. Dispmanx-sdl is turned on for vice.
sudo ./retropie_packages.sh dispmanx
The emulation speed was a little bit slow, so I overclocked the raspberry pi to “moderate”. Now the speed is fine.
Thank you so much for this great piece of software called Retropie !!10/11/2015 at 01:24 #107630
Just trying this, but I get an error:
pi@retropie ~ $ sudo ./retropie_packages.sh runcommand
sudo: ./retropie_packages.sh: command not found

try cd RetroPie-Setup first…10/11/2015 at 04:51 #107639
you are also not in the right folder.10/11/2015 at 11:06 #107660
Thanks herbfargus, you always give an example to help a novice like me.
Now I get further, I have the blue C64 start screen in full screen but the games have a huge black border. I have tried changing the ingame settings without success for my 19 inch monitor. I go to Video settings > size settings and I have tried everything in10/11/2015 at 17:40 #107701
