    Does anyone know of any good spectrum emulators? I currently have a NES and a SNES one with loads of decent ROMS but can't seem to find a decent speccy one.

    Cheers for that, I will download when I get home from work and have a go at finding Renegade or even Target renegade for it. But the game I really want is Saboteur :)

    Great choice of games mate. Its only just gone 9am and you've got me thinking about playing games ha ha

    Love retro and emulators me so if there's any more you need let me know. I've spent hours tracking down sites and old games.

    I LOVE "most" of the Dizzy's and the text games like Twin Kingdom Valley and The Hobbit :D

    There will be loads of games for the spccy I could get like Knighlore and spy vs spy.:)

    I still have an amiga with loads of games so I don't need an emulator for that but I was thinking of getting an ST one because I used to spend hours playing Carrier command and I think you could only get it for the ST and a good adventure game called Bloodwych would be on the list too.

    There' s one on the World Of Spectrum site called ZX Spin which is by far the best one I have used so far - really easy interface, emulates all known Spectrum hardware and seems to be able to cope with multiplayers (where a lot of emulators fall down).

    I've been getting games from there for years, top site :D

    You may not be able to get Knightlore (certainly not from the WoS site anyway). Some makers like Ultimate or Codemasters have refused distribution. Probably find them somewhere though I imagine

    I'll have a look for it but if not there will still be plenty of good games to get.
