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
PCSX2-rr http://code.google.com/p/pcsx2-rr/ Playstation 2 A branch of PCSX2 with rerecording tools. Very experimental and largely untested. Preliminary reports indicate instability with sync.
WINUAE http://www.winuae.net/ Amiga Recording input support but not rerecording. Windows only.

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.
