Re: possible ways to speed up 6502 core?

Honestly, if 6502 emulation performance is a problem then you might be just not doing an optimal job at a serial implementation.

PPU is usually way more bottlenecky on slow CPUs.

Hacked roms with inappropriate content

I heard a story today that sometimes when you download a rom from somewhere, people hacked it to pop-up pictures of penis's or something inappropriate in the middle of the game. I've found no record of such things. Sounds made up to me. Anybody heard of this before?

CPS 1 & 2

Where can I find information on the system details? The GPU for example and how that works at the register level. Only place I've found thus far is by reading the source code of other emulators.

This is only for .BIN files. Hopefully homebrew uses better file formats.

Re: Conflicting file extensions for different emulators

For the most part, atari games are <= 32k, however there is a 32 in 1 rom which is 64k. The smallest genesis game is ~128k (not including game genie roms). so 64k is a good check :) I'll patch stella and upstream it.

Look on the bright side: you don't have to decode .hex files too.
I'll check that. Good idea! :)

Re: Conflicting file extensions for different emulators

stella looks like it just looks at the file size itself and figures out what format it is based on that - which obviously won't work in cross-detection. Genesis has SEGA in certain magic spots which it looks for and so in theory I can create a special check inside of stella to make sure its not actu...

Re: Conflicting file extensions for different emulators

Sounds like I should probably just punt on this for now then and ask people to not use .BIN file roms.
