Because faster is better, here is another version of GP2X-CAP32 the CPC emulator for GP2X.
For those who haven't seen previous versions, Caprice32 is one of
the best emulator of the Amstrad CPC home computer series running
on Windows and Unix, written by Ulrich Doewich.
This emulator faithfully imitates the CPC464, CPC664, and CPC6128 models
(see caprice32 project)
What's new in version 1.4.0 :
- Speed improvements
- Add gzipped disk file support, reduce disk file size from 190k to 20k !
(you may gzip original dsk file using www.7-zip.org)
Of course, gzipped disk files are also browsable using disk explorer
inside the emulator, and when possible, they can be run automatically.
- A thumbnail image is now displayed in the file requester
while selecting any file with the same name of a previously
saved game (snapshot, disk, keyboard, settings).
It might be very helpful to recognize that game later if you
have thousand different games in your disk and snapshot folders !
- The virtual keyboard is now usable in the file requester menu to
choose the first letter of the game you search !
- In the emulator menu you can go directly to keyboard and settings
menu using the L-Trigger key.
- The sound can be set a bit louder
How to use it ? Everything is in the README file.

Thanks for that; this emulator on the GP2X is a godsend! I have relived so many fond memories of my old CPC6128 with it.
Your work on this emulator is very much appreciated!
ZX81 superb work!!!!
Now is at FULL SPEED with 200 MHZ!!!!!!
I cry, i am very happy, this is a great day for alls AMSTRAD USERS.
P.S. A small question zx81, is possible an emulator VECTREX in future?
ZX81 there are problems with last version.
The emu start with 64k (cpc 464 mode) and you can't setting to 128k (cpc 664 and cpc 6128 mode), many games wich use 128k don't start.
Can you fix it?
Thank you .
