[zx] ZEsarUX 10.2 Hysteria edition 26/10/2022

ZEsarUX to multiemulator maszynek ze stajni Sir Clive'a - znajdziemy w nim praktycznie wszystkie modele począwszy od ZX80, przez tradycyjne modele Spektrusia, łącznie z tymi, które pojawiły się już z logiem Amstrada, aż po egzotyczny Z88 Cambridge, gdyby nie brak QL można by było powiedzieć, iż emuluje on wszystko z tej rodziny. ZEsauRX poradzi sobie też z emulacją Sam Coupe, czy też CPC464 (o innych egzotykach nie wspomnę, jak np. emulacji CPC4128, czyli CPC464 + 128kb, nie obcy mu też sprzęt SEGI a dokładnie SEGA MASTER SYSTEM.

To byłby świetny multiemulator sprzętu Z80, niestety przynajmniej z mojej perspektywy potworna ilość kombinacji, rozbudowane menu, w którym odnalezienie np. mapowania joysticka to jakieś 5 minut biegania i klikania po okienkach (fajnych nie powiem), błędy w wyświetlaniu grafiki w trybie fullscreen (prawd. problem z Nvidia na natywnych sterownikach Win10) dość mocno zniechęca do jego użytkowania... mam nadzieję, że będzie lepiej bo ilość w pracy wrzuconej w ten kombajn robi wrażenie - przydałoby się poprawić niuanse - przede wszystkim przemyśleć strukturę menu.
