An emulator is a program that allows one system (eg. Windows) to run programs built for another system (eg. ZX Spectrum). It is mainly used to play old 8-bit games on today’s PCs. In other words, a complete waste of time.
What we will do is emulate Windows on a Linux system. Then we will run a DOS emulator under Windows. Then we will run a Commodore 64 emulator in this emulated DOS environment. Finally, we will run a ZX Spectrum emulator on the emulated Commodore machine.

Bad PLA chips (MOS 906114-01) are a super common problem for the “breadbin” Commodore 64 machines. There are replacements around but they aren’t that cheap. How about one you can build yourself at home for under $3?
The GAL-PLA has been tested on longboard PCB 326298, 250407, 250425 and the SX64 with no compatibility issues or modifications required. Tested with Super Zaxxon, 1541 Ultimate II and Easy Flash 3 with no issues on both NTSC and PAL machines.
