I missed this thread before. Looks like an impressive game you're working on! I'll be looking forward to playing it!

That reminds me. Shortly before I turned up on these forums I programmed an NES emulator into Microsoft Excel, just for the hell of it. Technically speaking I guess I can only call it a 6502 emulator... I started working on making it render a screen onto a spreadsheet buuut when I saw that processing just one frame of CPU instructions was going to take at least several minutes, I quit and moved on to more interesting projects (ie/ my SNES game).
I don't regret wasting all that time on it though, I learned a hell of a lot.
