Writing C64 machinecode using Linux With Visual Studio, Kickass and C64Debugger

Last Updated or created 2023-10-05

While still having a love-hate relationship with Visual Studio (I’m a Vim guy), here is my C64 coding setup. (for now)

Needed:
Vice (C64 emulator (and more))
C64 Debugger (embeds above in an awesome debugger)
Visual Studio
Kickass C64 assembler (you need java for this)
(http://theweb.dk/KickAssembler/Main.html)

Visual Studio click extensions and add kickass by Captain Jinx

This is Commodore 64, Atari XL/XE and NES code and memory debugger that works in real time. It is quick prototyping tool where you can play with Commodore 64 machine and its internals.

I’ve got mostly installed in /data
Change accordingly

Create new file, press ctrl-shift-p and invoke kickass debug!
