Is there an online, ie. in-browser (Javascript) Spectrum emulator, which simply has ALL (or as many as possible) of the games online WITH IT, hopefully selectable with 1 click, or at least with a CLEAR GUI, well laid out, where you can PICK ONE (click one) to play? ...wouldn't be too bad of an idea to do this on WorldOfSpectrum in fact, where each game's infosection has a link to simply PLAY that game online - just that it used to be a JAVA emulator, and noone has, AFAIK, updated it to do a JavaScript one :(

Anyone who gets this done - I ASSURE you there's a Large audience waiting! :) (and I DON'T mean Speccy people.)

JSSpeccy used to be able to load games from WOS.

The "Search WOS" is not working for me - nothing shows up when I click "Search".

Yes, I know. That button doesn't work - it doesn't search WOS.

I believe you can upload snapshots from your local computer.

Yes - I would like to AVOID that.

Matt has published the source code. It is easy to install on a web
server - I have it running for years at
http://sanyal.duckdns.org:81/zx-spectrum/ - look at the bottom right
corner of the web page for the link to Matt's source code at github.

Look at index.html - jsspeccy.loadFromUrl() constructs the full URL to
load, and the options under <select id="example-games" ...> define the
list. You can put it on a webserver and add as many games as you want.

good luck!
