Lets Make a Retro Game: Ep 2: Emulation

This is the 2nd video in my new series  where I am going to work through the steps required to make a home brew game for a retro 8-bit console or computer system.
In each episode I will work through various topics, such as tools, methods and design.
In this episode I cover setting up the emulator we will be using for the series, BlueMSX.
BlueMSX running ColecoVision Template
The BlueMSX emulator can be downloaded from:
http://www.bluemsx.com and then going to the downloads page

I have made a ColecoVision ROM template, which comes with some symbol files for the debugger, you can download them here.

If you want some more ColecoVision ROMs to play with in the emulator, there are a number of home brew games that have been released for download from Team Pixelboy.

You need to go to the Atari Age website and you will need to register if you are not already a member.

Also if you are interested in the alternative emulator mentioned OpenMSX, you can find out more about it at the official web site here:
