First and foremost due to my comfort using Java, but a secondary aim is because I know it will be even more difficult, given Java's lack of suitability for precise timing etc. I think it can handle a master system if I code it properly but as I have never before written an emulator it shall be good fun :-) I thought a Z80 is as good a place as any to start.

It is true there are many master system (and other console) emulators written in C/C++, but not many in Java. Basically I like a challenge :-p
