:lol:

OK. So, How do these 'Dumpers' make it happen?

I first found out about Emulation during the year 2001. I was quite surprised that

you can play KOF97 on PC. Then my brother started trying MUGEN so in effect,

I got a piece of that as well.

Eversince I got into Emulation, I kept wondering how it works...

So...HOW?

How do these lovely(?) people make ROMs?

Anybody?

With EPROM readers.
They remove the chips and use the EPROM readers to dump the binary data to a file.
Often this requires adapters for custom chips, and some other extra hardware.
It can be quite a complex process. But thats a general idea of what it takes.

making roms = easy.

you just read the data off of the cartridge.

emulation is the hard part.

an emulator essentially translates the commands the ROM image give from the assembly language of its platform, to the language of it new platform.

What do the dumpers get in return?

If it is expensive, they are not gonna do it for charity work right?
