Get Vice 64 here
Now the emulator makes a reset, and you can start loading the game by entering:
This is the way to load most games, but some games needs to be loaded by typing this:
If this is needed it will be mentioned in the Special Rules. If the Special Rules doesn't mention it, always load the game with the first method.
The above methods are for loading disk games, if you need to load a tape game you just need to type this:
When it has loaded, and it says that it is ready, type:
When you are done recording, then choose [Snapshot / Start/Stop Recording History] and it will stop recording.
If you want your playback to run faster than 100%, then you can either choose [Options / Maximum Speed / 200%] or [Options / Warp mode] which also can be activated by ALT+W.
If your recording plays back as it should, all you have to do is ZIP up the end.vsf file that was created, and upload that to HARP the normal way you always do using the SUBMIT tab.
The files used for competition must be the exact same as mentioned in the games description to each game. Let's take H.E.R.O. as an example:
H.E.R.O. [cr REM][t +9 REM][Docs] (D64)
The file name of the version to find and use is:
H.E.R.O. (1984)(Activision)[cr REM][t +9 REM][Docs][#148]
That would be the file to download and make your recordings with. We always take out the # sign, as that is causing download problems when a recording file is created at HARP. We also take out the year the game was released, and the company who released the game to shorten the description. In rare cases we mention the company name. That is when two different companies released a game by the same name.
The infos at the end of the file in () is to tell you what type of file you need to look for, so that you don't waste your time looking for an image of a disk, when you should be looking for an image of a tape :)
Another example is:
HARP game description - 007 Car Chase (D64)
Here you must search for a Disk game, that has no extra information besides year and company attached to it.
The file you would need to find is - 007 Car Chase (1985)(Coplin Software)
That's it. Have fun playing :)
