Fuse (the Free Unix
Spectrum Emulator) is a ZX Spectrum emulator.
It supports several models (including the 128), with
faithful emulation of the display and sound.
The emulator can load Z80, SNA and SZX snapshots, as well as
TAP and TZX
Saving to SZX, Z80 and SNA snapshots and TZX and TAP tape
is supported. The SLT extension to the Z80 format is partly supported
(enough for multi-load games); however, loading of the old DAT-file
variant is not.
DSK disk images are supported when emulating a +3, TRD and SCL disk
images are supported when emulating a Pentagon or Scorpion and DCK
images are supported when emulating a Timex 2068 variant. Interface II
ROM cartridges are also supported.
Fuse supports various front-ends. The usual one is GTK+-based,
but there are
Xlib, SVGAlib and framebuffer ones available.
Fuse has the
ability to apply
essentially arbitrary filters between building its image of the
Spectrum's screen, and displaying it on the emulating
machine's monitor. These filters can be used to do various forms of
smoothing, emulation of TV scanlines and various other possibilities.
