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 with that. Some simulators use video editing software, some use PowerPoint, and heck, some of them are even built with HTML/JS. (weatherscan.net; qconrad's 'IntelliSTAR Emulator'; 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#.

I don't have that kind of skill. I sure wish I did. It sounds complex and difficult.  :(
