It has been broken for a long time because of banking. I'd rather not look at it too closely wink

Meanwhile you can try the high-level HI65 emulator as an alternative.

That's a simulator, not an emulator, even if the author calls it an "high level emulator". It doesn't even have the blinking cursor.

I was trying MESS for a *real* emulation, but discovered that something broke...

@friol: you can use an old MESS version. Around 0.135, it was working to the point of running the demo contained in one of the bios revision

it started falling apart when the work on c64 accuracy started, so that it's not really of use currently, but I'm sure that eventually we will get it back to working state

I can't find old MESS binaries, even googling.

This page

http://www.mamedev.org/oldrel.html

has only MAME versions.

BTW, I've taken a look at the debugger, and c65 driver starts executing from 0x0000 a series of brk instructions (this with MESS 0.149). Is that normal?

I would try to debug with MESS 0.135, if only I could find it.
