Nothing Beats the Real Thing!
Someone can surely emulate the effect of a badly sintonized RF signal. You may like to stay 3 minutes staring at a beautiful picture, but on a ZX81 all you can watch while a game loads is 5 minutes of scrolling black and white stripes. Not so much fun.
Anyway I remeber recognising some patterns on the moving stripes, and it was easy to tell the the games was almost finished just looking at the way the patterns scrolled.
