how do you write an emulator
Posted 20 August 2003 - 11:32 PM
First let me start off by saying that this is a great site. Now that the 'fluff' is out of the way...
I am new to the world of emulation and I was wondering if anyone knows were I could find some info on how to write my own emulator.
I am most interested in developing one for the Sega Genesis.

I am looking for a little side project at home, something to tinker with and learn a bit at the same time. What little I could gather is that I may have to mess a bit with some low level stuff which would I would find fascinating.

Then you might want to head to the Gens website and pickup the SH-2 and 68000 core sources that emulator uses, so you can take a look at them and get an idea of just what's required.
2 more emulators that are open source (But not well known and I've never used them) you may want to check out are Generator and Genesis Plus
That's all the help I can offer. Good luck.

Emulator should take rom files and run them on a PC. Means you want to write a program, that make code in one language (the console's language) to PC's language. This is like programing a compiler, one of the most difficult thing to program, seccond only to operation system. Definitely not a little side project.
