Here a new (final?) version of PSPCAP32 the CPC Emulator for PSP.
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 1.4.2 :
- Bug fix in CRTC emulation (games such as Prehistorik II just couldn't be launched)
- Two drives (A & B) are now supported, but only drive A can be used to automatically start a game.
It might be useful with symbOS to put the OS disk on drive 'A:' and application disk on 'B:'
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
Sources are included, and this package is under the GNU public license,
read COPYING.txt file for more information about it.
This homebrew has been tested on both FAT and SLIM (thanks to Greg) with cfw 3.90-m33 + add fw1.5, but it should work on any other DAX custom firmwares.
** UPDATE ** :
Another bug has been found by Carl Murray (thanks to him) and here is a fix (v1.4.2)
Thanks to Gryzor you can find here a set of snapshots in snz format.
If you look for disk images you can find most of them here
Want to know which games are good ? here is a good site !
If you are a real CPC fan (as i am) have a look on the awesome GBCPC project from my good friend Loic Daneels :

Good work as usual but I still find myself flicking on Sleep mode before returning to the PSPCap menu and then losing my place together I gotta train myself to that properly but I use sleep mode nearly all the time with all other games it's hard to break the habit.
Maybe the savestate thing one of the new custom firmware versions coming out will help.
Still love this emulator though
Hey it's cool. I just love the fact I can play all my old favorites from my very first computer now on my favorite lil console in my pocket
