Can anyone tell me how to run tzx files on the ZX Spectrum emulator? I double click the file in the picker and it just loads the Spectrum prompt (that doesn't seem to work properly).
All you are doing is placing the TZX (a spectrum tape image) in the tape recorder
you then have to type LOAD "" enter for it to work (depending on what model you are using)
48k - press the J key (this will give you LOAD)
then press the Right Shift key *keep it pressed* and press p twice (this will give you "")
then press Enter
128k - select tape loader - enter
now you have to start the tape
if you are using the New UI it's in the menu's at the top right of the screen
Press 'scroll lock'
then press TAB (just above caps lock)
now using the cursor keys highlight Tape Control - press Enter
and highlight Play - press Enter
then press TAB to exit these menu's
and the tape should load (but the tape player is playing up in 136)
Now if you want to run games straight away without all that MESSing
place Z80 or SNA files in you software folder and these will auto run.
