Would it be possible to add some more ZX Speccy games, possibly from a YS Top-100 list or something similar?

Here are some titles that I'd love to see supported, but are currently missing from the .dat file:
The Monty series (Aufwiedersehen Monty, Impossamole, Monty On The Run, Wanted Monty Mole)
Beyond The Ice Palace
Castlevania Spectral Interlude (a relatively new one)
Cauldrons 1 and 2
CJ Elephant Antics, CJ in the USA
Cybernoid 1 and 2
Dynamite Dan 1 and 2
Elven Warrior
Exolon
Fred
Game Over 1 and 2
HATE
Heart Broken
Heartland
Highway Encounter
Into The Eagle's Nest
Joe Blades
Metal Army
Myth - History in the Making
Nebulus
The Olli & Lissa series
Rex
Rick Dangerous 2
Saboteur 1 and 2
Savage
The Seymour series
Soldier of Fortune
St. Dragon
Stop The Express
Stormlord 1 and 2
Tetris (the Mirrorsoft one)
Three Weeks In Paradise
Trantor

On a side note, would it also be possible to add a TZX/TAP file as a possible rom for each game, seeing that those are the formats distributed on World of Spectrum and suchlike?

Hi Svipur,
the ZX Spectrum is in a preliminary emulation stage (currently it's not under development), it supports only .Z80 ROMs and many games don't work...
if it helps, in the last few days many new Coleco Vision games have been added and they work perfectly! ;)

Cheers, Gab. Yeah, I've been monitoring that one as well, and it does make up for the limited Speccy support somewhat.

But my particular point of interest in this case is FBNeo's support for specific ZX Speccy games. If the .z80 format is non-negotiable, I'd be willing to compromise on that one, as long as we can think of a relatively reliable source of CRC-matching .z80 images (ease of obtaining games was the primary reason I mentioned World of Spectrum and the support for .tap/.tzx images).

How do I go about expanding the list of supported ZX Speccy games in the .dat file? I can make the respective .z80 images for testing purposes, if that might help.

To add (or at least try to add) new games You should manually edit the d_spectrum.cpp file (with the specific metadatas and infos of the game/s) and after that compile your own FBNeo exe...
https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/tree/master/src/burn/drv/spectrum

... but I'll be straight with you, (IMHO) at the current stage of development "the job is not worth it"... ;)

Gab75,
I fixed up the spectrum emulator, it's now perfectly good for playing games in - as long as it's in the correct format :)

best regards,

Yes, but a ZX Spectrum emulation without the support for the TZX/TAP files is a "limited" emulation... this is just my personal opinion and it doesn't take anything away from your nice work! :)

Cheers, lads.

For what it's worth, I made a pull request for d_spectrum.cpp with a bunch of games using CRCs from publicly available sources of .z80 images. The choice is somewhat limited given the .z80 requirement, but my take on it is that we can at least populate the list with the popular stuff that works.

A new RetroSouls "classic" is now available on Megadrive... AlterEgo Remastered, a funny action-puzzle game originally made for the ZX Spectrum.

Sincerely, I don't like add the support for the demo of the games (I prefer wait for the "full releases")... but that's just my point of view! :)

Many games are in TZX and/or TAP format... but if you can find the "memory snapshot" versions (.Z80), we'll be able to add the related support! :)

Gab75, it looks like Svipur is now in charge of the ZX Spectrum games - or at least, he said he is willing to add Neville's req's :)
