Combian64 ChangeLog

Combian 64 version 2.8.1

Fix an issue with corrupted installer package that didn’t allow to install additional software

Combian 64 version 2.8 Released!!!

What’s new in this version?

  • Fully compatible with Raspberry Pi 3b+
  • Added WiFi support
  • Rewritten boot logic: solved the issue with joysticks not always recognized at boot
  • Changed system language again to US
  • Removed mouse pointer at the emulator boot

Combian 64 version 2.7

After a period of silence, i decided to update Combian with a few nice features.

Unfortunately it’s not possible to update old Combian 2.5 with this new version, so, if you want to use it, you have to re-flash your microSd.

Combian 2.7 Experimental (Vice 3.1 +  SDL2) is delayed cause of some issue with Sdl2

What’s new in Version 2.7 ?

  • Vice was updated to version 3.1 (all emulators fully working)
  • Connect to a BBS using StrikeTerm via TCPSER
  • Updated X-Copy to support CRT files
  • Quitting from an emulator bring you back to the main Combian menu
  • Repaired layout keyboard configuration on raspi-config

I hope you enjoy this new release.

Useful notes:

  1. Sorry, i forgot to change system language from italian to US. To restore US as default, use raspi-config, change locale to US and then reboot.
  2. If you need to remove the annoying mouse pointer from screen, and set your own resolution 4:3 or 16:9, go to Vice menu–>Video settings–>Size settings and select fullscreen, set then your preferite custom resolution.

Update: Released Version 2.5 and 2.5 Experimental

Major changements was made to Combian64 menu:

  • Items reorganization
  • Added detailed instructions
  • Added Midnight Commander
  • Added X-Copy, an option that will copy your rom from USB keys to Combian 64 folder automatically w/out straggling against Midnight Commander usage.

Please Note – Combian64 is now splitted in two version:

  • Version 2.5 [Vice 3.0 + SDL 1.2] – Regular Branch (Stable)
  • Version 2.5 Experimental [Vice 3.0 + SDL 2.0] – May have some bug due to not a full compatibility between Vice 3 and SDL2.
