Emulators and Python
« on: December 11, 2015, 07:53:12 pm »
Anyone know of an emulator that supports something like "directly manipulating RAM through Python"? That'd be really cool to put into an app I'm working on (controlling RetroArch for PC from Android, but no editing support, basically, TeamViewer for emulation)...

Are you looking for some kind of API that hooks into an Emulator and does memory manipulation?

That's not exceedingly difficult in theory. Can't speed runners already do this with inputs? It's virtually the same mechanism.

That being said, I'm not developing it. I tried to make a Gameboy Emulator once and I had some issues emulating the GPU. That being said my Chip8 emulator is hilarious.

Well, more of an emulator that supports this without plugins, as that would triple frame rate drop... (Unless it was smaller than 768 bytes, that is, but that's completely impossible.)

TASVideos has a list of emulators that are compatible with python scripts. Not sure how helpful this list is but I guess this does give you some idea on what emulators support scripts. http://tasvideos.org/EmulatorResources/Features.html#20
