Make them playable

Post by Spud » Tue Nov 21, 2017 1:04 pm

Hi

Not sure if this is already on the to-do list, or is already implemented (and I just haven't spotted it), or has already been suggested; but when a game tape image or snapshot is present in the archive can there be a link/option to launch it inside an embedded emulator? Something like the QAOP would be amazing. The old java emulator used by WoS was a bit horrible but at least was an option.

Thanks!

Yeah, it'd be a nice feature for the archive!

One issue with having an emulator on site is compatibility and usability on all devices, from mobile phones to desktops.
Sound tends to be a problem, and there are other issues with integration (yes, it was tested some time ago ;) )

It a great idea and a good feature to have, but requires work to do it right :D
