For you old school gamers out there, I'd like to point out that ZXDS ( the BEST Sinclair Zx Spectrum emulator ) has been recently updated and now supports, among other things , RZX playback ( which is a format used to capture and playback gameplay videos directly from within the emulator ), ZIP archives support ( now it's possible to browse them and lunch games and applications within ) and cheats ( POK files supported here ).

Here is the complete list of the new features :

QUOTE said:
ZXDS 0.8.1 beta 2 (3.12.2008)

* Tweaked RZX code to work with more nonconformant but commonly available recordings.
* Worked around sound clamping while keeping the sound loud by throwing dummy sample into the mix.
I knew there must have been a reason why I didn't use sound bias 0 alone long time ago.

ZXDS 0.8.1 beta 1 (27.11.2008)

+ RZX playback (no SZX snapshot support yet, though).
+ Files stored in ZIP archives can be browsed and loaded directly.
+ Support for poke cheats in POK file format, including autoload.
+ Added log screen for better problem diagnostics, especially those RZX related.
+ Turn off the bottom screen backlight after configurable timeout.
+ Automatically save state and enter sleep mode when the lid is closed.
* Alternatively boot from saves/boot.z80 instead of last session state.
* Skip loading of either state upon startup when L/R buttons are held.
* Replaced few busy loops with inactive waits to further improve battery life.
* Improved the last menu action to cycle through all recently used views.
* Extended the range of both AY and speaker samples to make the sound louder.
* Tweaked the Z80 snapshot loading code to support some less conformant files.

I now it's been out for a while already, but better late than never !

Go and grab it now !

    Anywho, I've been using my modded Wii to play a few games here and there, and finally installed a custom Wii theme thanks to Larsenv helping me in a call (I have a family edition, and I don't wanna brick the nand since I can't restore it) Went with the basic "Black" Theme, since I'm a huge fan of dark themes, and it's less of an eyesore at night

    Larsen also helped me with my Dazzle setup, since the drivers for my model weren't online. I also helped dump that DVD with it, since I had a DVD drive.
