 Welcome  to  the first issue of Emulate!
The  magazine dedicated to all aspects of
the  Sinclair computer. Whether you are a
veteran to the Spectrum computer, or have
recently  discovered  the  joy  of colour
clash  and  monochrome through the use of
one  of  the  many Spectrum Emulators now
available, this magazine is for you! This
first  issue  is  really a test to see if
there  is enough interest in the media to
justify  further issues, although judging
by its renewed popularity, this market is
just beginning to take off again.

 In  this first issue, features include a
series  of  free snapshots to use on your
emulator  and  complete  instructions for
each.  They  are  also accompanied by its
original  rating  in  one of the Spectrum
magazines  and,  where possible, extracts
from its original review. I will also sum
up by saying how the game appears now and
how well it has dated.

 In  the  tradition  of  the old Spectrum
magazines,  there  will also be areas set
aside for other old reviews, a section of
playing  tips and a column covering those
old   favourites,  the  adventure  games.
Hopefully,  in  future issues, we will be
able   to  feature  readers  letters  and
queries,  as  well as answer requests for
playing tips.

 This  first  issue  has been produced in
plain  text,  so as to be readable on all
popular computers.

 If   you   have  any  queries,  letters,
comments  or  cries  for help, all E-Mail
can  be  directed  to me at the following
address  and will be featured in a future
issue:

DOCTOR@DOCBARRY.DEMON.CO.UK

 Also,  any interesting articles you have
produced  about  the  Spectrum  computer,
send to the same address for inclusion in
a future edition of Emulate!

SPECTRUM NEWS

 This section of the editorial covers all
the  latest  Spectrum  news, mainly taken
from  postings  to  the Comp.Sys.Sinclair
newsgroup.

=========================================

 DIZZY  COLLECTION  ON  NVG Thanks to the
combined   efforts  of  David  Crick  and
Richard  Hallas,  the complete collection
of  Dizzy  games  is now available on the
NVG  UNIT ftp archive. This includes 4(!)
different  versions of the original Dizzy
game, plus all the others in both 48k and
128k  format.  Definitely worth a look if
you  have  yet to discover the joys(?) of
Dizzy! The games should be located in the
Incoming directory.

=========================================

 SPECTRUM   DATABASE  UNDER  CONSTRUCTION
Stephen   Smith   is   currently  getting
together  a  complete  database  of every
Spectrum  Game  released. A mammoth task,
he  obviously  needs  all the help he can
get!  If  you  a  prepared to lend a hand
typing  out  the  instructions to some of
your  Speccy  Games,  give  him a bell at
STEVO@JONLAN.DEMON.CO.UK   If  you  would
like  to  check  on  the  progress of the
database,  the  list  of  entries  can be
found on the WWW at:
HTTP://WWW.CATALOG.COM/SJR/WWW/SS/GAMEDBS
                                     .HTM

=========================================

 TOP 100 SPECTRUM GAMES SITE An excellent
new  Spectrum  Games  site  is  currently
being  constructed  by John Stringer. The
site features a list of the favourite 100
Spectrum Games as voted for by members of
the  newsgroup,  and  a  snapshot of each
game is available for download! This site
can be found on the WWW at:
HTTP://GRELB.SRC.GLA.AC.UK:8000/~WEBSTER

=========================================

 BUBBLE  BOBBLE  FAN CLUB Currently Anton
Belenki is looking for people to join his
Bubble Bobble fan club. Anyone who enjoys
the   Bubble   Bobble   style   game   is
encouraged  to  get  in touch with him to
swap snapshots. Just send him a note to
  ANTON@GYM11.PERM.SU

=========================================

SNAPSHOT REQUESTS

 Another regular section in the editorial
will   be   set   aside  to  request  any
snapshots  you  may  be  hunting for, but
still  are  unable  to  find.  Send  your
request  here and maybe someone else will
come  to your aid! Many of these requests
are also taken from the COMP.SYS.SINCLAIR
newsgroup,  If  you do possess any of the
following  snapshots, it would be greatly
appreciated  by the person in question if
you  could  mail them a note letting them
know  and  making  arrangements  to swap.
Failing  that,  you  can always drop us a
note here at Emulate, and we will pass on
the news.
