Check this out guys - http://simonowen.com/spectrum/pacemuzx/ Its an emulator that runs the proper arcade version of Pacman on the humble Speccy. Need original Pacman rom for this to work but I have got it working in Spectaculator on my Iphone perfectly - Amazing stuff
Tip - When changing Config.plist you must choose 4 as your model version as it requires +2/3 mode to work.

If anyones having probs getting this to work PM me

Does anybody know if Spectaculator supports Currah Speech compatible games?

Why dont you try one?

I've got about 200 games in Spectaculatir but no currahspeech ones because they're not the best! Just tried death star interceptor and the voice 'prepare to launch' is heard

I have tried some, but with no luck. I was wondering whether there was something in the plist that needed changing to enable it. Death Star Intercepter speech doesn't require the use of Currah hardware.

I bought Spectaculator today as I'm a little too timid to jailbreak my ipad 2.

Managed to get Imagine's 'Jumping Jack' installed and working. its good although I prefer a good old keyboard or joystick to my ipad2 screen.

is the app still under development? I wonder if they would consider adding wiimote controller support?

I know some jailbroken emulators have the option of using a wiimote as the control method.

You won't get wiimote support w/out jailbreaking. Your best bet is an iCade or an iCade Mini (when they come out.)

Thanks for that.

I think I'll just try to get the courage to jailbreak it then.

May have some bad news with customising Spectaculator and the advent of iOS6. At the moment it seems I can only modify the contents of the Documents folder. I've tried altering the application folder contents and nothing takes hold. Could be a glitch but it seems like an effective way of eliminating tampering with apps.

Ugh, I have absolutely NO experience with any sort of coding and am trying to get my .tzx files into Spectaculator. All I need are the config files but I have no idea even how to begin one. Is there like a template, how-to or anything to help get these running? It seems as though without one I get no controls, is that right?
