Good emulator for a newb wanting to make emulation modifications?

Post by maaarghk » Mon Oct 12, 2020 9:34 am

Hey,

I have a project in mind, and I'll need to make modifications to an emulator to see it through. But I don't have very much experience of these things, so I was wondering if someone could suggest which emulator a) works reasonably well and b) has a pretty approachable codebase.

In case it makes a difference, in terms of how graphics rendering is implemented, the project will be to output 2x rendered graphics, i.e. one per eye for a VR headset. The difference being that the images in both eyes will be different, for example, sprites layer will be visible only in one eye, or there will be decreased contrast between sprites and background in one eye.

Cheers.

DGen ??? Maybe you're speaking about a newer version than the one i know as it was both *very inaccurate* and the sources definitely not nice imo.
I would have recommended Genesis Plus instead but maybe what you meant is than DGen is probably easier to understand and get compiled.
