Maziacs Sinclair Zx Spectrum Emulator for Amstrad CPC

09/22/2013 - 14:54genesis8

Maziacs is a ZX Spectrum game written by Don Priestley in 1983.

It was ported on Amstrad CPC by 40Crisis and sold by DK'Tronics.

The Z80 code is runned natively by the Amstrad CPC Z80, but all Spectrum system calls are managed by a partial emulation of the ZX Spectrum ROM.

As Don Priestley did authorize the download of his games and as Amstrad did authorize the use of the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC ROMs, the package Maziacs Sinclair Zx Spectrum Emulator for Amstrad CPC can be freely downloaded.

JavaCPC, an Amstrad CPC emulator programmed in Java by Markus Hohmann (Devilmarkus)

08/06/2012 - 23:48genesis8

I should have written about this subject since a long time. I have a list long as my arm of things to write about, from time to time I fish in this list but I have the feeling that I am like one of the Daughters of Danaus.

JavaCPC is an Amstrad CPC emulator (and CPC+ since a few moment) by Markus Hohmann (Devilmarkus). It's a java applet (needing an internet navigator, whereas JavaCPC Desktop is a standalone emulator).

This emulator can store the high scores of 13 current games, so you can show to all other people how big is your score ! More than 1000 games are already playable online.

Recently CPC+ emulator was added (see the video) and better processing of the sound processor. Time for you to see for yourself.

Amstrad CPC on Android and soon on Iphone

09/07/2011 - 00:22genesis8

There are already 2 Amstrad CPC emulators on Android : AndCPC and CPCDroid.

Both of them are based on PSPCAP32 by Ludovic Jacomme which is a port of Caprice32 open source Amstrad CPC emulator.

To my dispair, the excellent adventure game Orion Prime cant work with PSPCAP32, is it the same thing with these 2 emulators ?

Anyway, there is an incoming Amstrad CPC emulator on Iphone ! My dream comes true (read the source for more and future informations).

06/25/2011 - 21:16genesis8

If you care about sound accuracy on Amstrad CPC emulators like Mr_Lou, you should know that at the moment the best emulator is CPCE (last version is v1.94 patched on 2th June 2011).

Thanks to this interesting discussion on CPCWiki, dont doubt that more emulators will have soon a better sound accuracy, a new version of WinApe may even be out soon.

CPCE v1.92 by César Nicolas Gonzales

06/25/2010 - 17:17genesis8

César Nicolas Gonzales released for his birthay (on 17th May, happy birthday, just a month too late) a new version of his CPCE emulator.

The entire "Ecole Buissoniere" (plus the secret part) works perfectly (it stopped working on v1.90), LPTCPC doesn't forget to calculate the sector size in 1-sector tracks, file extensions are lower case by default, the new AUTOTYPE option provides a more flexible boot method, better SVGA support for DOS and DPMI, Z80 dummy DD/FD bugfix ("Skateball.cdt" by Dlfrsilver), RAR archive support, the TZX direct recording block is now operational, Simon Owen's DSK extension for unstable sectors was added, a new debugger function (bytelogger), LPTCPC is now menu-driven, LPTPC has a Windows NT/XP port, LPTPCIO, the tape motor relay pause is emulated (Opera Soft tapes need it), there's a little Easter Egg for the WIN32.IMAGE_DOUBLE=1 mode... A new corrected v1.92 version was released the 2th June.

Next version will offer CPC+ and Gunstick emulation.

RFTM ! While reading the documentation, I just discovered that CPCE let you play on internet, one person acting as a server, the second one connect to the server as a client. I will try this and let you know about it later.
