FBZX Wii is a new Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulator made by Obiaf. See below for a list of features, and check out the project page for more information about this homebrew's initial release.



Current Features (05/01/12) said:
  • Emulates accurately the Original 48Kspectrum (both issue 2 and issue 3), the classic 128K, the Amstrad Plus 2, the Amstrad Plus 2A and the Spanish 128K. This include screen, keyboard and sound (both speaker and AY-3-8912 chip).
  • Screen emulation is extremely accurate, so it can emulate border effects and even attribute effects.
  • Supports Z80 snapshots, both loading and saving, and loading .SNA snapshots.
  • Supports TAP (both read and write) and TZX (only read) tape files, supporting normal speed loading and fast speed loading.
  • Emulates up to 2 joysticks: kempston, cursor and sinclair1 and sinclair2.

  • Virtual keyboard support.
  • Emulates the Interface I and Microdrive.
  • Emulates the ULAPlus
  • Based in a new, fully free, Z80 emulator (Z80Free).

It's a decent emulator I guess, it's somehow nice to play Spectrum games on the TV like I used to, although it would be nice to have a few graphic filters to emulate an old tube TV ( like Spectaculator.com ) . But as it is , the video emulation looks spot-on.
The audio though it's a little bit of a mess, AY sound emulation is emulated but the output is raspy and choppy ( sorry for a lack of terms here ) so I'd rather switch it off for the moment.
And although I admire the effort and applaud it's author for another wonderful emulator, I must say that the emulator menu has to be one of the ugliest and less functional I've seen trough all the years ( and it's pratically the same as the Amiga emulator so I don't have any hopes that it'll get better any time soon ) .
As it is, I'd rather stick to ZXDS, which is nearly perfect and does a lot more then just emulate the hardware ( like directory browsing, copy/delete/paste files , save states, mouse emulation, wonderful customizable gui and so on ).

Anyway thanks very much for this release, I hope some of the problems ( mostly audio lag ) will get fixed soon.

    Still a criminal. Prescription from a doctor, which then had to be approved by the state, and they just legalized it here too for recreational use. But I can't even simply STORE it in my home
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Federally assisted housing. Still illegal to have it on property even though its medical and it's recreationally legal here.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    alright.. that sounds like a mess
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    I hate conflicting and unclear laws
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Then the city just passed an ordinance no smoking weed or even using edibles in public. I dont smoke cigs. I hate them. But why are cig smokers free to smoke anywhere they want?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    If i go to a bar and want to sit outside for a few beers. There are smokers all around me chain smoking the entire time. But now with the new ordinance, i can be fined $300 if I take even a single puff of my medication.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    okay that sounds bad, but what do you mean using edibles in public?
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    are they forbidding to eat in public or what?
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Cant have it in my home, cant use it anywhere on the property even in the smoking area outside, cant go in my car because thats a DUI, and now cant even walk down a back street at 3am bothering no one or you get fined. Yet people can smoke cigs all over the place.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    No thc edibles in public is what theyre saying
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    no smoking weed, no eating weed products
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ah
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    It so dumb. Small town mostly Trump Republicans. Like 3 city console members making decisions for everyone.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    that's what you meant
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    thanks for clarifying
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    yea..I'm sure
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I want to move but my mom, step dad, daughter, granddaughter, oldest brother, uncle, aunt, and several cousins are all here.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Kinda sucks to move and not know anyone. But I miss the big city.
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    ok so you're in prison because family needs to stick together, gotcha..I wished my family was more like that
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    as in that they'd stick *more* together instead of less
  • LeoTCK @ LeoTCK:
    but yea I think either extreme isn't good
