A ‘working’ diorama of my 1980s Commodore 128/64 computer room, with mirrored LCD display monitor and working 1541 disk drive lights. Driven by a Raspberry PI, custom circuit board, and VICE C64 emulator. Additional flavor added in the form of miniature floppy disks, game boxes, and wall posters / advertisements / game maps from my youth.
Series: Diorama 64
Let’s download, compile, and install the VICE Commodore 64 emulator on a fresh Raspberry Pi 4 install. We’ll make sure it works in a non windows console by running a Commodore demo program.
I needed a small display for my Commodore diorama that mirrors the output of my Raspberry Pi – I found one with this 1.3 inch ST7789 driven LCD display. Trouble was, mirroring this wasn’t as straight forward as I would have liked.
