About The Spectrum Emulator

  • Emulated Computer: ZX Spectrum
  • Emulated Peripheral Classes: Magnetic tape data storage
  • Emulated Peripherals: Multiface 1

Spectrum emulator written in x86 assembler. Emulates a multiface one, kempston joystick and tape drive (via ROM traps) to save data as files in emulator directory. Emulates many, but not all undocumented Z80 instructions but is not cycle accurate as it was originally developed on an original IBM AT (6Mhz 286)! When originally released it managed to run close to full Spectrum speed on a 40MHz 386 and source code is now available on Google Code (
