FBZX Wii

A ZX Spectrum emulator for Wii.

The project is based on FBZX originally written by Sergio Costas http://www.rastersoft.com/fbzx.html.
The code has been ported to Wii and largely improved with many new features by Oibaf (Fabio Olimpieri).

FBZX Wii can be found on Github at github.com/Oibaf66/fbzx-wii.
 
There are also a windows and a gamecube port.

The program uses the SDL Wii library.

DISCLAIMER

FBZX Wii is distributed under the GPL license, version three or later, which means
that is distributed "as is", without warraty of any kind. To know more details,
read the file COPYING.

The old exception for the Z80 emulator has been removed because now FBZX uses
Z80FREE, a brand new, fully GPLv3, Z80 emulator. So finally FBZX Wii is 100% free
software.

Amstrad have kindly given their permission for the redistribution of their
copyrighted material (the original Spectrum ROMs) but retain that copyright.
To know more details about how to distribute them, read the file AMSTRAD.
