  • My new project: dream86, an 8086/PC emulator in Rust
    2 projects | /r/EmuDev | 31 Dec 2021
    At the moment, the emulator can run a small 512 byte game (pillman, https://github.com/nanochess/Pillman). What do you think can be the next steps? I'd like to refactor the CPU code in primis, and then tackle some more small .COM programs, and then maybe go with booting DOS and bigger programs.

What are some alternatives?
