    FBZX Wii v4


    FBZX is a ZX Spectrum emulator for FrameBuffer written by Sergio Costas and ported to Wii by Oibaf.

    Features

    The main features are:

    * Emulates acurately 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.

    * All the wiimote, nunchuck and classic controller buttons and joypad are fully configurable.

    * Virtual keyboard support.

    * Emulates the Interface I and Microdrive.

    * Emulates the ULAPlus

    * Based in a new, fully free, Z80 emulator (Z80Free).

    Untar the binary release on your SD card, which gives you a structure as follows:
    Code:
    /fbzx-wii/fbzx

    /fbzx-wii/tapes
    /fbzx-wii/snapshots
    /fbzx-wii/microdrives

    Put .z80 and .sna files in /fbzx-wii/snapshots or .tap and .tzx files in /fbzx-wii/tapes on your SD card.
    The rom are in /fbzx-wii/spectrum-roms. Although Amstrad is the current proprietary of the copyright of the original ZX Spectrum ROMs, they have kindly given their permission for its redistribution with Spectrum emulators.

    I gave up on this because it was taking too long to load the games (the same amount of time it would have done to load the tape) and I just could not get the wii controller to work with the games. Shame. I got the Commodore64 emulator to work better so I am sticking with that one.
