Yeah both of them are good emu's, I'd say ZSnes has the slight advantage (certainly where sound is concerned) but both play certain games better than the other.

I always use http://www.zophar.net/ for any emulators (Doesnt have any illegal roms, just public domain ones)

One of the best sites for downloading emulators though for various platforms (PC/Pocket PC/Unix etc)

As for the Amstrad games, come on fella you can use a search engine ! Theyre all easy to find

I used Zophar for years as my first stop, but it changed a couple of years ago and ceased to be either comprehensive or up to date. Is it any better these days? It turned into a rather dull update blog except the changes rarely filtered through to the emu archives we all actually visited Zophar for.

Just out of interest Craig, that is game images & roms and not game images or roms?

And/or. Same difference. This forum is attached to a commercial concern, and so we have to take a zero-tolerance approach to linking to sites with downloads of copyrighted material.

So is the screenshot challenge thread wrong then?
Would it be wrong to link to somewhere like Lemon64 - no roms but game images? Or perhaps some of the YouTube vids that are posted here?
Im not being arsey, just wondered what the rules are

I think game images refers to things like TAP files that aren't actual ROMs, rather than images from a game.
