Sugarbox

A new version of Sugarbox, a new Amstrad CPC emulator for Windows, was released. The main feature of the new version is the support of online libraries like CPC-Power and Amstrad.eu. Another interesting feature is the support for black frame insertion, which will provide a smooth scrolling on 100hz capable displays.
Be sure to test the new version of the emulator and download the latest version from http://sugarbox.free.fr.
