The current developers' activity is quite low. We need more developers. If you have some experience, don't hesitate to help us. Even small changes in form of patches are appreciated, as long as they improve the overall code quality and readability.

 


You are especially of value for this project if you are able to help improve this software in the following fields:




  • Nullsoft Scriptable Install System
  • General Purpose GPU computing
  • Multi-Core CPU development
  • ARM emulation
  • GB/GBA development (for ex. with devKitPro)

Mud also told me he is able to use NSIS. may the better one of you create a small installer for VBA-M [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/wink.png[/img]/emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

 


Maybe we should completely remove the file association option from VBA-M itself and put it into an installer like most apps do?

yeah I could do that and I'm a pro at it since thats what we use at PortableApps.com [img]<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/wink.png[/img]/emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />


I do believe you at one point wanted to try using WxWidgets back when you maintained vba-s, are you still interested in attempting it as a small project with me?

I tossed that idea for whatever reason. I have started creating a basic Qt GUI for VBA-M in /branches/Qt, but stopped working on it when I got stuck on cleanly running the emulation part itself.

I have some experience in php, and people say C++ and php have similar syntax.

 


I would love to help and improve my programming skills.

 


What should I do?

Ideally, you need to know C++, specifically the object oriented portions.


Portions like the Qt4 GUI system, new core and things will require a working knowledge of that.
