Is there any example of game development in a "modern" multi-purpose language (C++, Python, Java, Go) that loads game binaries of an old platform (e.g. 8-bit, 16-bit or 20-bit DOS) and emulates it partially until a given condition and then mixes it with code that runs natively on the host platform?

I am looking for games or extensions of games that use a hybrid approach of emulation and native programming to build newer versions of old games. I am also not looking for software disassembled and ported to a new system, like SDLPoP.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Welcome to gamedev! Unfortunately, this "what technology to use" question is considered off-topic here. Also, it's not really specific to gamedev. \$\endgroup\$ – Vaillancourt Aug 29 at 19:05
  • \$\begingroup\$ well, you are right. I forgot that I removed all game references and examples, before I posted the question here. \$\endgroup\$ – Helena Aug 29 at 19:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ @AlexandreVaillancourt I changed the nature of the question, to make clear how it is about gaming. \$\endgroup\$ – Helena Aug 29 at 19:12
  • \$\begingroup\$ That's still unfortunately considered too broad for our scope. For a couple of reasons, "lists of X" questions are considered off-topic here. You may want to describe the issue that you have so that others could help you with solving it. \$\endgroup\$ – Vaillancourt Aug 29 at 19:23
  • \$\begingroup\$ Ok, nevermind then. The question then probably doesn't belong here. \$\endgroup\$ – Helena Aug 29 at 19:25
