I wouldn`t mind having this back in my collection as the Amiga emulated versions I have tried are rather poor and I still have my original Spectrum 48K.
Does anyone have a working original tape for sale?
Regards,
Mike.

if you look on the world of spectrum site m8 you can play the .tap and .tzx images back onto tape. You can do it on amiga and PC.

Another great site to look for spectrum games is planetemu

Thanks, but even with my Amiga 1200 + Blizzard 1260 + SCSI Kit, the emulation is not as good as the original, either running too fast or too slow whichever emulator or game version I try.
I could move on to PC emulators, but tend not to use my PC for games as I prefer the simplicity and speed of the Amiga.
Regards,
Mike.

@mpaulj

what morcar is trying to say is that you can output the TAP files audiably from the PC or the Amiga and record them to Tape.

from here its simple to load back in on the spectrum.

arguably you could even convert these to an MP3 (i will dig up a software link later) and then load them from your MP3 player =D

Thanks, I will look into that. As for an MP3 player, I do not have one.

you can also convert them and put them on a CD and use a portable CD player =)

the software is called WinTZX on windows and its awesome. I dont even use tapes anymore as i use the tape adapter which i bought on ebay for 2 quid and i have a little shuttle pc with all the entire collection of ZX Spectrum games. Next up is a DivIDE for me though then i can put them all on either a hard drive or a CF Card

DivIDE is definitely the way forward.

I love mine, and it's in my top 3 favorite retro items.

Try ZXAM-Spectrum on the Amiga. On my A1200 030 its perfect and as close as I can find to playing on a real speccy.
