Really good.
One thing though: I played Exolon to death on my CPC years ago...
...OMG the ST version is really sh*t!
So much so I had to check out Youtube just to make sure this wasn't a dodgy conversion or my memory playing tricks.

WHY?

Well this makes a nice change to sitting here playing with myself, my hands smells a bit odd... I think I need a bath...

What are the legal implications of this emu anyhow?
Surely its using TOS boot roms, much like our KickStarts? (unless they wrote a compatible or something)

I thought the ST ROMs were put into the public domain? Or am I talking rubbish, as usual?

AFAIA: The ST Roms are indeed open to free public use though I don't think that includes the commercial TOS/GEM replacements.

The TOS and the Atari ST & Falcon ROM's are *I think* now owned by Milan Computers.
