A SURPRISE IS COMING ! :)

- Cpu plugins system has been tested and
is working. The Raze plugin does not work because of an interrupt programming
- The plugins options dialog has been completed as well (I'm working on
the "configure" option). Also, I'll try to release a plugins
SDK ... avis aux amateurs :)

I'm continuing the development of my emulator.
I'm changing and/or adding lots and lots of things. Here are some of them
- RAZE z80 cpu emulation support (it's
- Multi Z80 CPUs support via a standard c++ class. It's what I'm currently
working on and once it will be finished, it will be very easy to add more
CPUs for maximum compatibility
- I'd like to support Kaillera as well, but I don't know yet if it will
be easy to add. As of now, I'm just displaying the main servers listing
dialog box ;)
- A "blur" option has been added, just in case you'd like to
have a more tv-like screen output.
- The 2 joysticks support is now finally working 100% (tested and approved).
And yes, it was not working at all in the previous versions, sorry about
- I have enhanced the AY-3-8910 sound output. Some work on the mixing
algorithm has to be done. If you know something about sound mixing, don't
hesitate to contact me
- I'm also planning 128k/+2/+3 spectrums support
- The things I'm planning, after a release with the above features : zip
file support, more file formats, better screen sync / timing ...
All in all, if I can add all the above
features, I think it could be worth the wait !
Stay tuned for more news !

Thanks to Rico for hosting me ! This new
website is intended to offer various informations for Spectrum emulator
lovers and wanna-be programmers. For now I haven't much time to update
my own emulator but I hope that I'll be able to get this bloody final
version 0.75 out one day :)
Sorry, there's no french version of this
version, for many reasons. One is that I haven't the time to maintain
2 different versions. The other is that I consider the english version
more appealing and interesting for overseas surfers.

The site is progressing quite well ! Also,
I have talked with a friend (NeoZeed, author of Past-o-rama, a Sega sg-1000
and sms emulator) and we are planning to work on a non emulated Sega system
! I let you guess what it is :).
But now some news about Speccyal: AY-3-8910 is near perfect (thanks NeoZeed
:) ) and beeper sound is a lot more accurate than before. Next I'm going
to work on a Z80 specific class that will let me, if I can code it, quickly
add other cpu cores to the emulator (RAZE will be the next one to pass
the test). Than I plan on adding other interesting functionnalities: plugins
support, support for other Z80-based emulators (arcade/computers/consoles).
I could rename the emulator as the purpose of speccyal will not only be
to emulate a spectrum 48k but also other systems (maybe MultiZ ?? if you
have suggestions, don't hesitate to let me know!).
The site is under construction, but in two weeks or so it should be almost complete, with access to the
emulators database and many others things if I have time !
