Emulators

Note: To test accuracy, you could use Acid Tests for CPC by the developer of Arnold.

  • See the CPCWiki Encyclopedia page for a mega-large list of all known Amstrad CPC emulators for a wide variety of platforms, consoles, other devices and FPGA hardware!
  • Old website for CPCE emulator (Page shows a small list of old CPC emulators and other lists for many resources. It shows that there was an old multi-system emulator called 'MulTiMachine' by Paul A. Hodgson, abandoned in 1998, but it is titled as 'MTMW' on CPCWiki's page. See old interview in French.)
