About Cole Johnson

I've been working on emulating 1st generation video game systems in my spare time since 2018. My current focus is discrete game ICs, such as the AY-3-8500 "Pong on a chip" circuit. Almost all of these systems lack any form of emulation at the moment. Time to change that. I'm aiming to port emulations to the MiSTer project, and then to MAME. All of the code and files involved will be open-source, and anything not put online will be available upon request.

I go by TheProgrammerIncarnate on forums.
