C64 uncompressing feature

Recommended Posts


sorry to understand me, but english is not my first language ;-)


I have a problem with commodore 64 files and uncompressing them. All files are .zip, i have checked the option "extract rom archives before running", but Hoxs64 or Vice are only loading the LAST DISC into the emulator. It cant load the game of course, i need the first disk!

What can i do to force the uncompressing tool to load in the first disk?

Ok i figured it out, all is working now:

Add a c64 game, your files MUST have underlines in filename, or it doesnt work!

Now go to "Emulation" box under edit and enter the following command:

"-autoload C:\LaunchBox\7-Zip\Temp\Ghostbusters_II_Side_1.g64"

It is a example for the game Ghostbusters 2 C64 Version. The filename "Ghostbusters_II_Side_1.g64 is the one, that is in the temp folder, after you have started it in Hoxs64.

Be careful: You must edit all your c64 games to work in the same way. When you move your launchbox folder, place it to the same folder as before!
