Fuse - the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator - is a cross platform ZX Spectrum emulator

Fuse - the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator
What is it?

Fuse (the Free Unix Spectrum Emulator) was originally, and somewhat unsurprisingly, a ZX Spectrum emulator for Unix. However, it has now also been ported to Mac OS X, which may or may not count as a Unix variant depending on your advocacy position. It has also been ported to Windows, the Wii, AmigaOS and MorphOS, which are definitely not Unix variants.

What features does it have?

    * Accurate 16K, 48K (including the NTSC variant), 128K, +2, +2A and +3 emulation.
    * Working +3e, SE, TC2048, TC2068, TS2068, Pentagon 128, Pentagon "512" (Pentagon 128 modified for extra memory), Pentagon 1024 and Scorpion ZS 256 emulation.
    * Runs at true Speccy speed on any computer you're likely to try it on.
    * Support for loading from .tzx files, including accelerated loading.
    * Sound (on Windows and Mac OS X, and on systems supporting ALSA, the Open Sound System, SDL or OpenBSD/Solaris's /dev/audio).
    * Kempston joystick emulation.
    * Emulation of the various printers you could attach to the Spectrum.
    * Support for the RZX input recording file format, including 'competition mode'.
    * Emulation of the DivIDE, Interface I, +D, Beta 128, Opus Discovery, Kempston mouse, Fuller audio box, Spectrum +3e, ZXATASP and ZXCF interfaces.

What is it lacking?

    * Quite a lot! However, it's a lot better than it used to be...
