How do you create an emulator?
« on: August 16, 2021, 06:08:43 PM »
How is a 3000 or 4000 emulator created? I would like to learn how. I've seen http://www.taiganet.com/ 4000 emulators, but still don't know how.

You could use After Effects, or you could use PowerPoint, which I use. You could even make an online emulator.

Programming, mostly. Taiganet's WS4000 simulator was programmed with C++.

Though that's not to say all simulators are built like that. Some simulators use video editing software, some use PowerPoint, and heck, some of them are even built with HTML. (weatherscan.app; WeatherStar 4000+)

I would recommend looking at the source code for my weather site as a starting point: https://github.com/vbguyny/ws4kp

You'll need to know HTML and a great deal of JavaScript and Qjuery and a little bit of C#.
