@Retrowurst: Mac Spectacle comes with an Auto Typer utility for handling .TAP files. I got some .TAP games from World of Spectrum, and dragged and dropped them onto this program, and Mac Spectacle took them perfectly fine. I should mention that you cannot open .TAP in the normal way of File>Open, you will need to open the tape recorder, and go from there. Thankfully, once you put it through the tape recorder, it will load VERY quickly! I hope this helps! Smile

Anyone here who has the "Tape Converter" for this? The Emulator can't handle .tap files because it uses its own format.
