Emulator for the 6502 chipset written with TypeScript and Angular 2.
Read a detailed explanation of building this emulator here.
Try out a working version of the emulator here.
This is a 6502 emulator written specifically to demonstrate the structure and functions of Angular 2 and TypeScript. It is not a full hardware emulator and not optimized for speed, but rather for readability. It is not completed (I do accept pull requests) because not all op codes are implemented and the binary-packed decimal tests fail, but the other tests and programs run successfully.
The emulator features a full assembler/compiler with support for labels, a disassembler, a memory dump, and enables you to debug and step through programs.
Navigate to the parent directory of the location you wish to place the project (it will create the
6502emulator folder for you).
Grab the repo:
git clone https://github.com/JeremyLikness/6502emulator.git
Navigate to the directory:
If you want the typings (Angular 2 is fairly self-documenting, so I just included ones for
Node.js) install the utility:
npm install -g typings
Now install the package dependencies:
You'll probably get a lot of noise and errors but as long as the final list shows
angular2 etc. and the final line is not
an error, you should be good.
Now you can compile and run it:
That should be it! Follow the directions to load, compile, and run your first 6502 program. The display is memory-mapped, meaning you
create graphics by setting a value 0 - 255 to a memory address (the
globalConstants.ts contains all of the information you need).
