ZX Spectrum - copy protected games

Post by johndaviesbmi » Mon Aug 09, 2010 6:36 pm

Hi there,

Does anyone know?

Is it possible to run ZX spectrum copy protected games using the floppy drive emulator?

I have managed to get non protected games working OK, but no luck so far with games such as world class leaderboard which use the alcatraz copy protection system.

If anyone has managed to get these working please let me know how!

Update:

many thanks to Jeff for managing to get this game working on the floppy emulator. It required an update to the software which will hopefully be released soon.
