Considering writing a NES emulator? Please read!

So you're looking to write your own NES emulator and have stumbled upon this forum for technical assistance. Great!

But before taking any further steps, please be aware there is already a mind-bogglingly excessive number of NES emulators in development:

So before opting to create a new one -- quite possibly another project which will go no where given lack of time or interest down the road (be realistic!) -- please take some time out of your day to research one (or all) of the many existing in-development emulators instead. Your efforts might be better spent improving one that's already started, or by teaming up with an existing developer.

Regardless of what you choose, happy coding!
