Name for Zx Emulator
« on: July 13, 2021, 10:53:59 »
So,

I have two name's for my ZX Emulator which will for now only Emulate the 16K and 48k.

Im either going to call it 'SpecBlitz' or 'BlitzSpec'

Torn between which name to use.  ???

blitzspec sounds like its nothing to do with the speccy , it sounds like a blitz app, so i would choose out of the two specblitz.

but If i was thinking up a name, maybe Z80rubberKeys :)

@Baggey,

  I cut my teeth on a zx81, so I would have words with you.  I graduated to a C-64, but if money weren't an issue, I also would have owned a Spectrum.

Nowadays that I have more control of my money, I am making up for it.  I'm purchasing the C-64 Max next month (now that Amazon is selling it.) and a Spectrum Next with the next kickstarter or with someone who is willing to sell theirs (though not from a scalper or scammer).  The other  8-bits I'm interested in, i'm combing e-bay listings for a fair deal since no company is interested in re-creating them.
Prepare to be assimilated !  Resistance is futile!

if it was not for the success of the z80 based zx81, the speccy would of been a doorstop that neever got made. I just missed the z80 model in 1980 , I got the zx81 in 1981 and stayed in my room for a year

another name for your emulator "80sHero"

How could you call it anything else than RetroSpec?

ETA: Doesn't WIndows 10 have a built in screen recorder?  I don't remember the exact hotkeys, but it is used a lot with gamers that want to upload playthroughs onto Youtube

Spectrumulator.
A portmanteau of Spectrum and emulator.
