    Do you have good coding skills ?
    If not,you're wasting your time.

    I hate half of you...especially the dumb ones.
    Some of you are on my blacklist and so shall be any asswife that tries to prove he's worth anything.
    If this post somewhat offends your silly arse,then I proved my point.
    You have been warned so don't cry to your momma about it later on...or any mods for that matter.

    Of course it's possible to make your own emulator... That's how we got emulators in the first place..

    The first step to "making" your own emulator will be to learn as much as possible about the console that you'd like to write an emulator for. Here's a link to some technical documents-- http://www.zophar.net/tech/tech.phtml

    Try creating a Chip-8 emulator first. That seems to be the easiest system to emulate.

    Chip 8 wasnt actual Hardware or an actual system it was a virtual machine that ran ontop of hardware, i forget which RCA hardware it ran on but it later ran on HP graphing calculators. Think of Chip 8 as the java console and the programs as compiled .Jars, unfortunatly dissaembling and interpreting java is a much harder task.

    This aside the nature of a virtual machine is much like that of emulating cross platform machien code so its worth doing very worth it. Taught me alot more about memory addressing.

    CHip 8 is the bare bones to emulation IMO. If youve managed to understand them concepts, try doing a NES. Im having a hard tym understanding how to program it efficiently in C++
