For those of you who wish they still had their BBC Micro, or others who may be wondering what we're all going on about (!), please be advised that Mike Wyatt's excellent emulator BeebEm for Windows
version 4.0 is available for free download
. It is a brilliant hack, and I only wish that I could code like that!
As we are talking here not only about (what was arguably) the best of the 8-bit microcomputers from the 1980's, but also a machine famous for having most of its software instantly available in ROM(s), once you start playing (er, using
the software) you will soon find that you need the ROM images as well.
So you could do a lot worse than take a look at this
page (and especially the 15 Meg .zip file mentioned next to ROM archive
). Next, of course you will be looking for software available as disk images ... in which case may I suggest "seek, and ye shall find"! Enjoy!
