    Default Spectrum or CBM 64 emulator on XBOX

    Hi, sorry to Mods if I shouldnt post platform specifics here, but does anyone know of any existing or even proposed emulators on the XBOX for these great machines ? Dont get me wrong, I bought my XBOX so that I could have MAME up and running on a big TV, but I do yearn for the classics that those machines had....

    Ant Attack, Atic Atac, Jet Pac, Manic Miner on the Speccie....
    Bungeling Bay, Monty Mole, Drop Zone (although I agree with most posters that the Atari version was the mutts nuts)

    Any news would be welcome !

    There's already a c64 emulator called Frodo, not sure about the Spectrum though as I never had one so haven't been looking out for that one

    CBM is an operating system not a machine
    C64 & Spectrum are machines (personal computers)

    The first computer to have CBM was the original Apple

    Many of the game titles that were made for Spectrum & C64 were also released in MSX versions with the same name -- I say this because there is an MSX emulator that runs under Windows.
    That way you have another option to try.

    The graphics are probably better on the MSX emu than on C64 any way. I think the name of the Emu is "fMSX"

    there may be others

    cheers guys....I'll take a look around. Ive heard of the Frodo emualtor before but didnt know that it was being developed for the XBOX.

    I wouldnt mind the MSX one, that could be interesting aswell....

    cheers

    btw Tinman, I referred to CBM as in Commodore Business Machines...

    thanks for the clarification , thus you were not in error, I am because the OS I meant was CPM not CBM.. I think this is the right spelling
