Generally superb Spectrum emulator with a host of good games available and with the ability for the user to import ZX Spectrum snapshots and tape files widening the range of games available to the thousands. The virtual stick can be fiddly, especially on games that use 8 directions, but I was generally impressed by how responsive it feels. Only one real issue - a number of the games available for purchase insist on using "up for jump" when it would be possible to map the controls to allow a virtual button for jump instead (am thinking of Northstar and Jack The Nipper 2 in particular). Up-for-jump is something we've rightly left in the past, it'd be nice to avoid it where possible, especially where virtual joysticks are being used.
Not able to use all keys on Moga Controller Why do you have so few gamepad keys to map? Some games requires much more keys to use. I have moga controller with 12 keys and 3 sticks but i can use only half of them for mappings. Actually for Elite I do not want to use onscreen keyboard I want to map a keys to gamepad. ZX is not a console - it is computer. It has much more keys than 1 joystick. The same for bluetooth keyboard. What should I do to map it to full ZX keyboard? It is ridiculous...
Any chance of Android TV support? Best Speccy emulator I've found, but lack of true gamepad support (reconfiguring keys is impossible without a touch screen) and spotty recognition of own tape images (there one scan, gone the next!) means it's not quite up to snuff for my setup! Great to know my purchase is supporting people like Jonathan Cauldwell though :)
Keyboard Issue The keyboard is incomplete. So much is missing. Where sin & cos? Where DEF FN & VERIFY? and all the rest? This really needs to be addressed. I am sure it must be due to a smaller screen but still could be better.
There are many issues I have with this compared to free emulators (I've paid for the full one). 1) Playing Skooldaze, the timing and stuttering it's awful. Another emulator that's free has an alternative timing option that makes it run perfectly. 2) To not have the ability to load from World of Spectrum and to not seem able to use the memory card is a big problem. It states that it will only load the first file in the directory? Really? 3) Why are you charging for games that can be downloaded elsewhere? 4) If I'd known these issues beforehand (not known when using the free one) then I'm not sure I'd have paid for it Please do more updates to this as it seriously needs a good overhaul
The best speccy emulator. I don't buy a huge amount of emulator apps and usually rely in the free ones but this one is worth every penny. Brilliant on my Nvidia shield portable.
