Where are the emulators?

Post by Juan F. Ramirez » Tue Dec 11, 2018 10:38 am

Sorry for the silly question, but I can't find a place here where all the emulators are.

I know there have been many updates of different emus along this time, and I'd like to check if the ones I have are updated or I must download a newer version of each one.

If there is no place here, I think it should be a section with a list of all the emulators for any OS: for Window, Linux, Android, NDS, etc. The downloadable files themselves or links to their web page.

If we can have, say, updated inlays of games with better resolution here(BTW, great work, guys!!!) why not the same to emulators?

Hi @Juan F. Ramirez ,

Glad you like the high resolution scans. @pavero and others have worked wonders with these. Emulators is on the list,and I know @hikoki had a list, but it needs someone to keep the page updated.

Creating the page is easy, but I need a volunteer.

Thanks @hikoki

It would still be nice to have a page within SC though.

The idea is preserving every emulator done for the Spectrum even if they run on obsolete OS (now I'm thinking of Warajevo, X128, Z80, ...)

Inside ZXDB, they are stored in tables "tools" and "toolfiles". You just need to create SC pages to display them! :)

That will give us the titles, but not the files. I can download them for you @Juan F. Ramirez from archive.org if you would like.

No, thanks! I have most of them.

The idea is having a 'repository' of emulators, a database with characteristics, author, year, etc and, if possible, the files themselves, in the same way we have games in SC. Sorted by OS or console. That's the idea. I don't now if there's a legal problem there (why if most emus can be freely downloaded?)

If not, at least a link to every emu web to check if I still have the newest version of, say, Fuse for windows, for example.

If anyone is interested in taking that on we can add it to the site.
