    New version of the ZX Spectrum emulator for the DS

    http://zxds.raxoft.cz/download/zxds_080b1.zip

    Changes

    ZXDS 0.8.0 beta 1 (19.6.2008)

    + TR-DOS emulation, allowing loading of TRD/SCL disks (including autoboot).
    + For/next loops in TZX files are now supported.
    + Screenshot support, for SCR/BMP saving and SCR loading.
    + Color/grayscale palette toggle for more nostalgic look.
    + Mode for black and white display of ink/paper only, without attributes.
    + AY ACB and ABC stereo modes and narrow/wide stereo separation.
    + Choice of three relative AY and speaker volume levels.
    * Changed AY volume tables to match the real machine more closely.
    * Implemented fake low-pass AY filter to avoid aliasing issues in some tunes.
    * Fixed setting of AY envelope register even if it doesn't change, fixes few sound effects.
    * Fixed sound clamping when all channels played at full volume and speaker was off.
    * Few other subtle changes (initial config autosave, even more safe shutdown).

    I think that you would have had to own a spectrum back in the day to appreciate this emulator.

    Superb emulator. That games page link really shows off the huge amount of playable/ace speccy games.
    Great work.
