Rich Dawe's Emulators Page
They say games aren't the same as they used to be - no playability, etc.
So, bring those games out of retirement by using an emulator. Emulators
exist for practically every home computer that has existed. Now one can even
get arcade machine emulators. The ones listed below run on PCs. I've only
used the BBC and Spectrum emulators (BBC for the, er, BBC, and Z80 and
Warajevo for the Spectrum), although I would like to try an Amiga emulator.

who helped me with Speccy stuff. Check out his page.
The only problem with these is that it's illegal to use pretty much
any of the game ROMs, unless you actually own one of the machines.
In this case, I'd guess it'd be pretty pointless to want to emulate one. Arcade
emulators seem to be growing in popularity, and they have nice Web pages, so
take a look anyway.
