My website is moving!

GeoCities will close on 26th October 2009, so I will be moving this page to my new website (when I have thoroughly checked and edited it):

http://abroad.sqweebs.com/spectrum/software/

Please update your links and bookmarks ASAP, because there will be no redirection after 26th October.


Please read the Notice on Copyright and Plagiarism before you download anything, or before you accuse me of anything!

Here you can download Spectrum-software that I've written and released in emulator-format. You can also read about the exciting Spectrum-software projects I've got planned for the future! So far, all the software here relates to Manic Miner and Jet Set Willy (apart from SPECSAISIE: a collection of utilities written in Java - some related to Spectrum-emulation in general, some MM/JSW-specific).

The programs are stored here as zipped TAP-files. For the uninitiated among you, a TAP-file is an encoding of a Spectrum-tape, and to play them you need a Spectrum-emulator - visit the comp.sys.sinclair Spectrum FAQ to find a Spectrum-emulator for your particular computer. If you're new to Spectrum-emulation, I refer you to Nick Aldridge's page How to use a Spectrum emulator (archived). If you still experience difficulties with unzipping or using these TAP-files, email me with details of the problem and I'll sort you out if I can!
