by the Reservoir Gods
A long, long time ago (November 1997) in a galaxy far, far away (Liverpool) a young farmboy (Ed Cleveland) stumbled across a dark secret hidden away in an Amiga CD. It was a Commodore 64 emulator with complete source code. Laughing manically, Ed hatched his evil plan for world domination. Using the 6502 emulator he would create a NES emulator for the Atari ST.

Ed visited the shadowy lair of Mr Pink clutching a disk full of code. A secret pact was formed - Ed would code the 68000 version whilst the hapless Mr Pink would handle the Falcon conversion.

ST Owners will be pleased to see Ed Cleveland's 'Nesulator' arriving on a machine near them soon. The Falcon version has a number of enhancements:

  • 256 Colour Mode Used to support total NES palette emulation
  • Double Buffered Hardware Scrolling for faster emulation
  • Sprite Clipping
Parts of the 6502 emulator have been recoded to support a more efficient memory management system. The mapper routines have also been recoded to work faster. The video chip emulator has been completely recoded.

The consequence of this is that 'Godlenes' runs a lot faster than 'Nesulator', but is less technically accurate in operation.

Both 'Nesulator' and 'Godlenes' will be made into generic emulators. We still have a lot of work to do with mapper routines, so we are going to release a few games just to whet your appetite for the full generic emulator.
