Hardware, Embedded Systems "Little benownst to the world all this time, GoldenEye (N64) has a fully-functional ZX Spectrum 48x emulator built into it. By feeding it a proper Spectrum monitor program and calling menu 25 to load a snapshot, any Spectrum 48x program can be run. The emulator started life as a side project to see if Spectrum emulation was possible on N64 and was hooked into GE, the current game in development. It was supposed to be removed before release but was only made inaccessible and inoperable. All the registers, dependancies, and script required to run the emulator still reside in retail GoldenEye carts."

Lords Of Midnight.

Still play it. So obsessed with it in fact that I wrote an online version ;)


Like you I had the 16K model which then got updated to 48K so that I could play The Hobbit, Penetrator (no laughing at the back) etc etc. And then LOM came along and all else was forgotten...

Happy days.

Never did like GE though - it used to give me seasickness due to the bobbing motion when walking! Quickly traded it in for some other game (I forget which).

Lords Of Midnight.


My home LAN is called ´Midnight´ and it´s a reference to this game.

Doomdark´s Revenge was much bigger ´n´ better, but I liked Lords of Midnight more.

DDR is indeed bigger, but I'd say it's not nearly as good due to being too big and the place names being too similar. The way it handled army visibility was much better though.

Incidentally, Chris Wild (who did the DOS remakes which were bundled with the flawed LOM3 - the Citadel) is now working on an iOS/Android/etc port of LOM, in collaboration with Mike Singleton, LOM's author. Yep, an official remake is coming out over 2 decades after the originals ;)
