Emulator Resources / Potential Emulators

This page is part of the emulator resources page collection.

This page is a list of possible open source emulators for adding rerecording tools. The idea is to get information out to potential developers looking to start a rerecording project.

The only requirements for this list are: 1) Open source 2) Not already approved for submission at TASvideos

Rerecording Tools but not yet approved for TASVideos

Emulator Link Platform Why it isn't approved
WINUAE http://www.winuae.net/ Amiga Recording input support but not rerecording. Windows only.
Citra https://citra-emu.org/ Nintendo 3DS Basic rerecording tools and an wide range of video dumping.
Mesen https://www.mesen.ca/ NES TAS features are being slowly added
PCSX2 https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2 Sony Playstation 2 Preliminary reports indicate instability with sync requiring multiple movie files to create a final product.

Open source emulators currently without tools

klmz: It might be better if linked to an article (doesn't exist though) on how to implement the required features.

adelikat: Agreed, and I am in process of writing such an article.

[1] There was rerecording version of DosBox (Wiki page | Forum topic), but that emulator does not have stable sync between machines and appears to be dead.
