Which is the best BBC emulator to run on Windows 95?

Postby richmond62 » Wed Jun 21, 2017 5:34 pm

One of my pupils has just been gifted a computer running Windows 95 by his grandfather
and would like to put it to good use by running a Beeb emulator on it . . . . .

I use BeebEm315 on my slow crap P1 laptop, but mine runs winXP now no problem.

BeebEm414 is too oo slow :cry:

I'll have to wait for the specs when this young man hauls the machine into the school on Friday afternoon.

Maybe an early version of MAME and some "good old games" instead/as well?

"good old games"

Not on my watch: I'm teaching programming, and a lot of the parents of the kids
attending my programming classes this summer want me to get their kids away
from spending the summer (when it can get up to 40 degs C here) hunched
over machines playing games: they'd far rather that they were hunched over
machines doing something that may have more positive long term results.

Anyway, that boy has already got onto all the BBC games via Beebdroid on his telephone!
