I can’t say wether it will or won’t for definate because i simply do not use vice on my particular build. However, what i can say is that the RetroArch config menu works in everything on my unit, including Cave Story. This leads me to believe its a universal menu and operates independantly of the actual emulator itself.
Either way, you’re just going to have to try it and find out that way. It’s not like its going to do any harm to your unit if it doesnt, just add functionality to your other emulators.
Let me know if it works.
