Alessandro Dorigatti has made a cycle-perfect Spectrum 128 emulator for the V6Z80P! Originally, this was assumed to be an unlikely development due to the differing clock speeds of the Spectrum 48 and 128 (the V6 has only 14MHz and 16Mhz crystals). However, with a some cunning timing tricks the roadblocks have been overcome. The emulator passes all the FUSE tests, supports the enhanced ULA and will boot directly into Residos, allowing access to the the V6’s SD card with the normal Spectrum LOAD and SAVE commands.
Congrats to Alessandro on his great work!
