Spectrum Game PC Remake
I want to do a remake of an old speccy game. I have an emulator and the .tap file but need any resourses to help me crack the code and rewrite it in C or C++.
Andy Noble andy.demon.co.uk did a fanstistic job of Manic Miner, but after trying on numerous occatins to Email him without success decidid to leave a message here.
If anyone has any pointers, I would love to hear them.
Reverse engineering a z80 machine code executable is going to be pain staking and time consuming.Firstly you will need a disassembler for z80 code and you will need details of the machines rom calls.
Why not instead remake the game using contempory win32 and opengl or directx from scratch. You can make the game the same as the spectrum version without disassembling the code. I would imagine something simple like JetPac would be easy to do.
