So I got my first FPGA today…
A couple guys were complaining about how they couldn’t make their .SID’s (C64 music files) into .PRG’s (C64 executables) for music competitions. So I made a tool that does all the fucking work for you. It lacks completeness, and that’s because it’s only been tested on about 12 SID’s thus far (all of which work, though).
Completeness/improvements will come soon.
This is a pretty basic CHIP-8 emulator, and more or less a barebones test case for writing emulators with FerrisLibs. It’s Windows-only (for now); the emulator code itself is entirely platform-independent, but thus far I haven’t implemented any FerrisLibs backend code for other systems. For now, it also depends on the latest MSVC runtimes.
The controls mimic an original 4×4 keypad, and are mapped as follows:
original qwerty 123C 1234 456D -> qwer 789E asdf A0BF zxcv
There are no (known) emulation bugs.
You can read all my old blog posts on my old blog. I had originally planned to migrate it all over here, but meh; too much work.
