Yes, but that archive is the WAV versions which are pitch shifted in the conversion. You need the 8SVX versions that are linked in the comments for that page, as I mentioned previously.

I used to play a fixed version on my A1200+030/50MHz and it ran at the correct speed, just silky smooth framerate. I can't remember the crack's name but it was definitely out there.

He's right - how many of us played FA/18 Interceptor on stock A500s back in the day? And loved it, and were't really bothered about the framerate?

How many would like that same framerate today?
