8080 or chip8
Posted: Fri Nov 22, 2019 12:07 pm
im confused with those two, is chip8 uses intel 8080 or is it really a chip8? I read about chip8 and it always brings up 8080. Since theres only 35 opcodes, I tried to create my first emulator written in java, opposite to what im looking at my reference at emulator101.com thats written in C, wiki says only 35 instruction but for some reason i faced up to 255. I started working with simple instructions like moving register to register and implementing simple arithmetics but even though Im working with it , i still dont know what system im touching i really am a newcomer for emulation scene , sorry if someone would notice any wrong terms used . thanks! sorry for my nglish too.
