You can download here the very first release of Space Invaders Arcade Emulator for Amstrad/Schneider CPC range.
Space invaders is (C) 1978 by Taito Coporation
 
No needs to present Space Invaders. It's one of the first arcade games and it has been cloned so many times on nearly 
all computers/consoles plateforms.
It's a so iconic videogame and a videogame legend !
 
For copyright reasons, you need to provide your set of Space Invaders roms to play Space Invaders in emulator.
 
Please read the "Space_Invaders_Arcade_Emulator_For_Amstrad_CPC_v1.00.txt" file for details.
 
Enjoy.

Hey!  ;D

Nice to see a new arcade emulator on CPC. I'm going to try it!
After buying the PCB on ebay, extracting the ROM and converting them into files for the CPC DSK. Sure...  8)

Just received my PCB 1 hour ago, extracted ROM and done the CPC DSK!  :-\

Except the sound, as you said, it is a nice V1.0 enjoyable emulator.
Congratulation!  8)

I burned it to Cartridge Eprom.
Man, what should I say?
Really amazing on my GX4000!
Even Chase HQ 2 cannot stand it!  8)

Ok, troll mode off... Please anyone send me a DSK with "Read Only Memory" files included...

I'll put one together tonight. Once you prove you have original cabinet I'll mail you one :)


Edit: OK The roms are easy to find... think EMUlation in a tropical PARADISE (it's invaders.zip that you want)


the result is great, a nice turn of speed and certainly very playable - excellent work all round, well done I love it.

To all, please don"t put complete version with roms on the public part of this forum.

I took special care not to violate copyrights laws.
I don't want to put cpcwiki or anybody in trouble if it could be the case.


Thanks for respecting that.

I have no intention of doing that. But I have made a set on DSK and CPR, and I can confirm it works, Although the CPR needs some buttons remapping for GX4000 compatibility... @Phantomz are you reading this mate?
