Finally, a note to anyone interested in tackling this project: Good for you. I hope you learn a lot. It’s going to be frustrating and very hard. If this is your first programming project, I’d suggest sitting it out and picking a simpler project to hone your skills. One thing that I’ve noted is that there is always another project on the horizon that you can jump in on later. Those of you who have solid coding experience will find porting ZSNES a challenge at best. Best of Luck.
For those of you (including the original ZSNES folks!) that are seriously interested in more information on porting software, the amount of effort it takes, tools/libraries you should use, or anything else, please feel free to e-mail me. The more people that have the knowledge, the easier porting codebases will become. That’s part of the idea behind making source code open in the first place: Avoid wasted and duplicated effort.
Good luck to all, and I’m looking forward to checking out ZSNES when it goes open source!
