Installation Tips:

[Installing the normal edition]
There's no real big deal installing the SidBace package, just create a directory and unzip the contents into it.


[Installing the Plus edition]
If you want to install the Plus version of SidBace, you need to download the normal edition too, this because the normal edition contains components that are required for the plus version to run such as the runtime library and the unzip library.
Though the normal edition runs ahead, the plus edition will still function on the newer runtime library delivered inside the normal edition package. (I kept it downwards compatible)

[Installing the database files]
Though you can build your own database, if you have the latest HVSC collection, it will be taking less time installing the database files from online..
Though it still remains required to add the location path of your C64 music directory, as long as this is correct, the database will work fine.

[HVSC support]
If you have the HVSC collection, it's absolutely important that you don't move or rename nessesary files from this archive at all, specially files located in the /DOCUMENTS/ directory. Else you won't benefit the advantages of the STIL and BUG viewer.


[When errors or bugs encounter]
There are some situations where the application fails (V2.0021 or below) :
"Error in XitMain....etc"

If you get a similar line displayed like above, you need to update your Winsock drivers up to version 2.x such as the "wsock32.dll" and "msvcrt.dll". There is an update available at Micro$oft


Another problem is window contents getting smeared up when windows are getting outside the desktop area or are being dragged across other applications that remain on top.
This is a problem of the window updater that only implies users of Win32 which has the desktop PLUS package installed or Win'98 / NT.

To get rid of the smearing, just disable the "Update window contents while dragging" in your desktop configuration-settings.


If you get other bugs than above you can report them to vvacme@worldonline.nl but only if the bug implies the Win32 version of SidBace. I will not offer further support to the DOS application.

WARNING!
For rippers I have added a Plus edition, the extra benefits of the plus edition only supply your needs when you know what you are doing when editing PSID files / binary C64 files.
If you are a regular SID-fan who only listens and collect, I suggest you to download the Normal edition only!

Linux / MacOS

Sorry, there is no Linux or MacOS port yet, but the source is available, a Linux port could be made without too much troubles, for MacOS you might have to alter the source of the XBasic environment too.
