Default Spectaculator - ZX Spectrum Emulator for iOS (un-official thread)

I have stumbled appon a ZX Spectrum emulator twice now (version 1.10 and version 1.0.0) both are easy to load coustom games with iphone explorer it has been pulled once already and I have managed to get both releases, I advise anyone with the money (2.99 US Dollars) to get it, HERE it is worth it!

This is currently the only Spectrum emulator that allows you to import your own games so I think it is well worth the price of admission.

EDIT: I see you just figured that out.

Or you could support Elite Systems and buy the official app.

I can also load games into the ZX Spectrum Elite Collection but it isnt worth it, 2.99 for A set number of games or 2.99 for UNLIMITED free games (:

thanks for the headsup on this!

its a pretty nice emulator and pretty nifty you can 'hack' it to upload your own games. however, will most likely continue to use elite's zx spectrum emulator due to highly configurable controls, let alone the games authors getting some royalties.

having huge difficulty getting any games i upload to acknowledge the inbuilt thumbpad. i guess its interface ii type but i simply cant get some games to work even after using a redefine key option.

for example, i upped booty and select interface 2. it plays fine but can only move left and right! i goto redefine keys and again, will not work left and right. i supose it has sommit to do with the config file but i still cant suss

so near yet so far!

ahh oki cheers for pointing out settings .. always forget about them!

still no joy tho, the default was kempston yet all the included games use interface ii or keyboard customs controls. selecting kempston on any games supporting kempston controls ends badly. weird, tho i assume its just me!
