Read the General problems FAQ before asking questions. If you still need help, post your specs (speccy screenshot), OS, emulator version number and details of what's wrong.

Please contribute to the wiki if you discover any inaccuracies or have relevant information to append.

That's a cute webm, what is it?

Boy_vs_Girl

If I want to contribute to emulation which programming language should I learn?

DeathDog

opcode

BlogWobbles

Java.

TalkBomber

Swift 3.

Fortran.

Crazy_Nice

What's the best place for PS1 ISOs? I heard Emuparadise has shitty versions of ISOs.

I'm particularly looking for FFVII, FFVIII, and FFIX.

BunnyJinx

I heard Emuparadise has shitty versions of ISOs

There you go.

Fried_Sushi

I said I didn't want shitty versions, though. What is wrong with you?

StonedTime

Emuparadise Good for No-Intro sets (Require registration). Hosts a lot of bad disc rips with no indication.

How about you check the wiki you piece of shit

PackManBrainlure

I think it's Bravely Default

5mileys

Might as well play all the shitty FFs with shitty rips.

BunnyJinx

What are the best FFs? My sister told me VII-IX were good.

(I've only played I-VI)

farquit

For real though, you probably want C++

haveahappyday

Skullbone

Oh. Well shit, what games should I play now?

Stupidasole

Ace combat

Raving_Cute

Cobold

Methshot

I like rpgs, but are you serious? I found FFI - FFVI extremely underwhelming. how does this series have so many fans

TurtleCat

Well Final Fantasy Tactics is really good actually

SomethingNew

I'm sure you'll enjoy FFXV

Raving_Cute

PSP or ps1 ?

Fuck off pretentious loser

TreeEater

PSP

and I'm not a loser, you're mean

Emberfire

Grandia and Lunar SSS were pretty chill if you're looking for a gen 5 JRPG.

If you made it through FFI-VI, you'll probably get some enjoyment out of VII and IX.

Methshot

whut.

Carnalpleasure

What's wrong with VIII? That was my older sister's favorite because squall is handsome

I'm sorry

What's wrong with VIII? That was my older sister's favorite because squall is handsome

I dunno

BunnyJinx

What's wrong with VIII?
It diverges a bit from the other 8 in a lot of respects, but there's nothing horribly wrong with it. People who like IV tend to like VIII.

Lord_Tryzalot

So few devs these days have the slightest idea of what they are trying to emulate.

Dreamworx

J-U-N-C-T-I-O-N

Soft_member

8 has a garbage plot, even by Final Fantasy standards.

but there's nothing horribly wrong with it
There are actually a lot of things horribly wrong with it and this is coming from someone who liked it.

Emberfire

The funny thing is, even up to the end of the first disc, you could stop playing it then and there and declare "I liked that!" with some credibility left intact.

But the longer you play that over-produced trainwreck the worse it gets, until by the "Remember when we were all from the same orphanage lol?" scene you just don't fucking give a shit anymore, even goddamn Xenogears starts to look good.

Harmless_Venom

Remember when my ex-boyfriend showed up after a psychotic break and we let him join our eco terrorist group?

People play 8 for the character drama. There's a lot of shit wrong with it, but people wouldn't be discussing it and selling remakes on Steam 15 years later if it was THAT bad.

Playboyize

Remember when my ex-boyfriend showed up after a psychotic break and we let him join our eco terrorist group?
Is that FF8 or FF7?

Techpill

Yes they would, because it's Final Fantasy. And, like those poor poor fucks that now comprise the whole of the Sonic the Hedgehog fanbase, some people are so caught up in basing their identity around a series that they simply refuse to accept when it's dead.

So, yeah, they'll keep carving up that dead horse into smaller and smaller chunks to sell again and again and again, because the horde of morons willing to buy anything with the Final Fantasy/Squeenix logo on it will be absolutely staggering in number for some time yet, and digital distribution is fucking pennies on the physical media dollar.

iluvmen

It's VII.

I was being charitable and letting the retard have his moment.

Inmate

Wait doesn't the same shit happens in FF8 where Squall joins a terrorist organization?

Carnalpleasure

You should consider some people get stuff out of games that you don't understand. Like, I can't fathom why Sonic exists after the CD version. There's literally no reason in my mind, but clearly there's a ton of people with literal autism who love the new stuff, and that's great for them.

Evil_kitten

Not after a psychotic break. And, depending on how deeply you wanna interpret VIII's copious yet poorly-written plot, he didn't "join" the Timber Owls, he was ordered to render aid to a revolutionary group by a mercenary organization.

Chain of command would've gone Party>Squall>Rinoa>SEED>Cid/NORG.

Stark_Naked

There is no reason for Sonic to exist after Sonic 3&K. You are essentially correct.

whereismyname

Doesn't matter, start with what you feel comfortable with and move on if it turns out to be limiting.

Knowing some assembly would help though, not necessarily to write the emulator but rather to understand what you're emulating. I'd recommend ARM assembly or basically anything that's convenient and not x86 because x86 assembly makes puppies cry.

farquit

One of the towns in Bravely Default. Many of the areas in that game and especially the towns are comprised of a bunch of big, layered images that are usually much more zoomed in once you start moving. Meaning they would altogether be higher density while zoomed out than the 3DS can even display, and it looks great in Citra.

girlDog

I see, thanks

Poker_Star

So, I just got a new computer that should finally be capable of emulating PS2 games, is there any simple guide for video config so I can get the best quality possible out of PCSX?

depends on your CPU, GPU and what you mean by quality.

LuckyDusty

i5 6600k, RX480 and highest resolution I guess?

Lunatick

PSP but make damn sure you're using the slowdown fix patch. They slowed down half the ability effects in that version for no fucking reason, which looks terrible, sounds terrible and wastes your time. It has a better English translation, good new content, really gorgeous new FMVs, and is mostly at the original Japanese version's level of difficulty instead of the easymode we got on PSX. Not to mention is natively 16:9 as well.

Boy_vs_Girl

Should have gotten a i7 6700k

Skullbone

Sonic CD was dogshit full of un-Sonic level design and came before S3K, what the fuck are you smoking?

LuckyDusty

Raise the internal resolution to something above your monitor resolution so you get a downsampled image and then enable the widescreen patches to remove the black bar in fullscreen without stretching the image.
Be aware that uprendering like this will cause inevitable visual glitches that are not present at native resolution. Set blending unit accuracy to high too so that you don't get fucked post processing

Stark_Naked

Bravely Default has 100% comfy towns all the way through. It's also in a really close to completable state in the chinese JIT builds, with a slow opening cutscene and fullspeed anything else.

Unfortunately there's still an issue in Citra where the game will error and softlock when checking to see if there's any Streetpass data (something a totally offline 3DS with wireless disabled can pass unbothered, so I'm pretty optimistic Citra can pass eventually without needing a connection or anything).

girlDog

Anything more I can do about these vertical lines? I already enabled align sprites.

Emberfire

Use the Opengl renderer and run it in fullscreen.

kizzmybutt

Raise the internal resolution to multiples of native one instead of using the custom resolution option.

ZeroReborn

I've been wanting to replay Conker. I also remember that it ran terribly.

have there been any improvements? at all?

Harmless_Venom

Is DraStic really worth the 6 bucks?

Evilember

It is but you can just pirate it.

Ayyy

CouchChiller

what am I supposed to see here?

Garbage Can Lid

Nothing particularly interesting, I'm just bumping.

Top is a dump coming from a real console, bottom is the GL renderer. I'm trying to figure out why there's a 1px line at the right and bottom of the framebuffer in the GL version.

Raving_Cute

accidentally juxtapose non-sequential game release dates
trigger hardcore sonic fans
Not even a little surprised.

I enjoy 8 for the universe. The characters and story hardly make any sense but I really enjoy many of the locations. I'm kinda used to ridiculous stories in japanese RPGs so that doesn't bother me too much.

I like over-the-top bullshit like that: youtube.com/watch?v=DBjpL1PcY5M

The main problem is that the battle system is repetitive broken trash. But then you can get no-combat pretty early on which makes the rest of the game more enjoyable.

Dreamworx

What's the point of emulation when you can't even emulate the latest games?

Spamalot

Because latest games aren't even games

BinaryMan

I cut myself on this post

Fried_Sushi

Don't you have to jump through hoops just to get the apk working?

idontknow

You can emulate older games

Snarelure

He's right tho.

iluvmen

You're telling me Disgaea 5 isn't a game

PackManBrainlure

How many QTEs, regenerating health bars, or never-ending tutorials would you like with your bullshit question?

It's not a bullshit question

AFAIK Daniel had nothing to do with with authoring higan.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like he should really stfu.

Emberburn

I said it before and I will say it again, only a moron would give up their copyright.

BlogWobbles

I'm a complete noob when it comes to emulation, only ever having used game boy advance emulators in school. I tried installing and using dolphin but I had no idea where to start and now I tried installing psx2 and got a game. I thought after instalation I simply had to run the program and select where the file was, but that doesn't seem to be it. I checked the wiki and it assumes people have some basic knowledge, yet I have none. Could someone please help me?

Methshot

No

New_Cliche

Alright, I tried

Stupidasole

For Profit emubox

Moral and Moron start the same way.

Spamalot

You are a retard

Have you tried watching a youtube video or something

Maybe check the FAQ on the wiki

Playboyize

I did and I couldn't find anything. There is also a lot of terminology I don't understand. I'm not good at anything related to technology and I am very bad at using computers.

TalkBomber

You can find it here emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/PCSX2

Illusionz

Also what game are you trying to run

idontknow

Honestly I probably wouldn't care enough to refuse. I write patches because I want to fix stuff that I use, I don't really care about having my name attached to it so I would probably have accepted if I had contributed code to bsnes.

Still I would consider it a dick move to ask for that based on some noble motive only to sell the thing later on. It's the bait and switch that's a bit scummy.

You have a similar requirement when you contribute code to SQLite, but here the purpose is very clearly that they want to be able to use on closed source applications and sell closed-source modules and support for money. I'm perfectly fine with that.

VisualMaster

user I don't know what those words mean but no I haven't, I'll do that

SMT III

AwesomeTucker

Well you must select the BIOS when PCSX2 asks you to

Use the USA one, version doesn't matter, I think, I use the 2.30 one

Also could you post your specs

Surprised this hasn't been brought up on /r/emulation

StrangeWizard

Keep defending and blowing L Ron Byuubard's nuttsack a bit more, young thetan. Soon you will ascend to the next level, but only after copaying for another one of byuu's cartridge boxes!

Supergrass

L Ron Byuubard

This is why /emugen/.txt was bound to fail. A great deal of the hilarious stuff posted on emugen is satirization of individuals in the scene, and /emugen/.txt tried to avoid putting up those style of posts.

AwesomeTucker

I just dl'd the one that was linked up to the page you posted. This is a laptop and idk what the specs are exactly, but I have intel core i7/ AMD radeon (r5 M330 IIRC) /8gigs of ram.

Do I do anything to the BIOS now or just leave it alone and select it when the emulator tells me to? I'm gonna do that

Dreamworx

Wait wait, I forgot to tell you something.

When you run it for the first time it should tell you to select the BIOS

Extract the Bios to a folder and then select that folder when it tells you to

FastChef

Make a new one that is not politically correct.

kizzmybutt

ah ok, I dld the BIOS and tried to find it through the emulator and it couldn't detect it. I'll follow those steps then, user.

DL the dev build
Extract the BIOS to a folder
select it when the dev build asks me to

Supergrass

What's happened here, user? I think I did everything by the book

Soft_member

Did you click on the BIOS rom Pedro

Garbage Can Lid

I hate my name so fucking much user I swear I'm not even a beaner

The BIOS rom doesn't show up. Maybe I fucked up somehow when I downloaded it, but there's no ROM in there anyways. I just clicked on that link and went on the BIOS download link on the page and downloaded that, then extracted it to the folder. AFAIK I did everything right.

It's ok if you can't be bothered to help anymore, you're not my personal Indian IT support. I appreciate the effort anyways.

Gigastrength

So,i've been having vertical lines in drakengard, but only when i use sword+magic combo. It dissapears after a 2 seconds, i wonder how could i fix it but the only thing that i've found its that i should set resolution custom to 1220-XXXX
But i have full hd monitor, it looks very blury that way. Is there any other resolution or fix to this?

not even a beaner
personal indian it support
doooooooood. just delete sytem32 and never come back.

SniperWish

What do you mean it doesn't show up

They're right there in your screenshot

Just scroll down and select a USA one

I just did it myself and it worked

PackManBrainlure

off topic but I'm just joshing around. I don't have anything against either Indians or Hispanics. In fact, I'm living in Spain right now, for a year.

for some reason it won't let me click it. Let me delet and try again. its primitive but maybe it'll work.

Boy_vs_Girl

Some games are just blurry.

Increasing the resolution randomly doesn't give games lines.

Ignoramus

It worked. for some reason some of the BIOS files were missing, but it's all working now afaik.

Thank you very much for your help, user. I appreciate it. You're a nice person who helped a ludite fuck.

SniperWish

No problem.

And you should post your exact i7 model, PS2 games need a good processor to run well.

and get out of Spain, it's a shit country, I know because I live there

FastChef

I'm not sure what it is, exactly.

And I'm living in Granada. It's quite cheap and nice but I can't tell what the fuck people from Andalusia are saying. Are you Spanish or just living here?

Soft_member

how can you say this on emugen of all places? Barcelona is like the Babylon of trannies.

Carnalpleasure

Might be getting a New 3DS soon!

Does RA have .zip support or should I use standalones?
Which SNES emulator?
Should I use SNES VC injects for most games?
How good is ReARMed on it?
Anything else I should know?

Emberburn

It might be more worthwhile to just rewrite all those old games instead.

Just rewrite the game using one of the many modern off-the-shelf game engines available. You could probably crank out 2 or 3 per day solo if you really wanted to.

R E D D I T

Go to "computer" (or whatever it's called in your OS) and check properties, you can see it there.

And yeah, I'm spanish, good thing you're only staying for a year.

StrangeWizard

For an antisocial shut in, I don't know a lot about computers, since I've been a console player all my life, but I guess that's why I'm here now. Thanks Spanish friend. I'm actually pic related

Poker_Star

gib Galicia pls

Is this what you were looking for?

I was running SMT at an okay-ish tier (I dld the japanese version like an idiot though) but it seemed to be doing fine

Sorry for being frustrating, but I really am very computer iliterate.

Poker_Star

So, what's the deal with MSU-1 in higan?
I have A Link to the Past DX here. I tried to set it up manually, but I couldn't get it to work. In the end, I grabbed a torrent with all the files pre-made for me, load it with higan, good old game loads. Then I put the folder to where it imports the games (loz3-dx.sfc folder) and then the game wouldn't even run, just flash at the bottom of the emulator.
I'm doing something wrong here, but there don't seem to be any tutorials for getting this shit to work, the readme includes no help, so idk.

SomethingNew

Well, since you asked so nicely

If it runs fine, then alright, but other games will probably won't run well.

If you it starts to slow down you may want to use speedhacks.

Gigastrength

I just won't play very intense games. RPGs will be alright because outside of very cinematic events, there won't be a lot of going on. Kingdom hearts is a fucking no go. Maaaaybe Okami. God hand should be alright. I have no idea if Odin Sphere will run well.

Thanks for the help user.

Booteefool

Reddit is horrible, look!!!!!

Post downvoted into the ground.

oh

Flameblow

No problem.

TalkBomber

This might be a stupid question but regarding the sort of recent release of that pgpe for ps1 games that makes the models not wobbly.
Would that also be possible for any old pc games?

Fuzzy_Logic

what do you mean by bad disc rips?
i checked them with crtlmame and they were alright.
or are you implying that they are somehow corrupted? or are the videos compressed? the videos look fucking ugly in terms of compression, but i guessed this was just psx quality and i got snobbed by the pc releases hq fmvs.

Booteefool

Still at it.
I grabbed higan 0.94 as that's recommended for it.
It loads the soundtrack as needed, except not even performance profile runs the game at full speed, so I'll have to figure out a way to get this to work on v101. Tho I'm not actually sure how.

Lunatick

Oh.
Guess I can just use RetroArch since it actually WORKS.

L Ron Byuubard
Noice

Writing a bruteforce picross solver is not as trivial as I would've thought, it's been running for 4 minutes and it hasn't even gotten to the last 3 lines yet (using a basic backtracking algorithm). At this rate this'll take years to complete.

The problem is that I can't reject wrong solutions early enough so there are too many cases to consider.

then why is ix and debatably x good

SniperGod

X is not good, you're fucking retarded.

PurpleCharger

It's not just "good" it is quite literally the best final fantasy game ever released.

likme

6 advance with the butchered music and color scheme at 92
Imagine what the SNES ver would score

Lunatick

Metascore for FF games is really not a good way to measure that, I think for big series with tons of fans it's just not objective enough. Look at the score for FFXIII for instance, it's ridiculous.

Not that I necessarily disagree with you but trying to come up with an "official" or "objective" ranking for FF is utterly pointless. The games are simply too different to be ranked that way.

FastChef

He thinks 13 should be lower than 83

cum2soon

But it is the only way. It doesn't matter if they're different. This is the only objective way to rank anything, you ask a bunch of people what they thought. Demon Souls scored an 89. It is not as good as FF9. "Best" is just shorthand for "they did a good thing and everyone liked it."

That list doesn't factor in the user ratings, which might be useful averaged with the critic scores. Or taken alone if you're paranoid about corruption for some reason.

There's no inherent point to ranking things, it's just interesting. It might have some value if you're in the market for buying games, but that's another topic.

8.1 is fine as long as you don't install the spyware updates that came to 7 too. I never used the start menu anyway

It's literally just an inferior version of Win7

Boy_vs_Girl

windows 7 cannot mount images without 3rd party software and it does not support USB 3.0 without the updates.
The only thing inferior about Windows 8 is its telemetry shit.

w8t4u

Decided to play through Sly Cooper again, but PCSX2 has other plans.

In the Into the Machine level, I die when I try to walk past the last set of flaming hatches (webm related). You have to do this earlier in the level, and I had no issues with it.

Anyone else run into this issue? Sly Cooper is a pretty high-profile PS2 game, so I can't imagine being unable to complete a level went unnoticed.

VisualMaster

The only thing inferior about Windows 8 is its telemetry shit.

You can't disable DWM and DirectDraw functionality is just (poorly) emulated

SniperGod

Maybe try an older revision listed on the wiki.
If that still doesn't fix it then make an issue on the git

PurpleCharger

You can't disable DWM and DirectDraw functionality is just (poorly) emulated
Might as well get used to it and find the workarounds (they exist in some cases) because you'll be on 10 one day and it does the same thing.

Greg Buchner said ArtX and Nintendo worked on Dolphin [GameCube] for over three years to figure out what should be the main priorities in helping developers create software. The most important priority was to create a high performance machine that would fight the rising costs of game development.

And they never succeeded.

King_Martha

Use dgVoodoo2 for DirectDraw emulation.

BinaryMan

Don't worry my friend, just never open the Summon Friend menu or talk to the adventurer who saves your game after Chapter 1 ever! Totally playable. :^)

massdebater

Not him but I'm not going past 7 ever unless they fix their repulsive attitude toward giving users control and get rid of the suspicious as fuck keylogging and always-on data sending to the NSA in the United States. Even 7 was bad controlwise but could be brought into usability after some obnoxiously well-hidden settings are flipped.

I'll literally switch to Linux before willingly letting my PC become a foreign spy in my fucking home.

haveahappyday

I've found a dll that works pretty well for DirectDraw. I tried dgVoodoo2 to attempt to emulate DX8.1 once and it didn't work well though.

MPmaster

dgVoodoo2's emulation for D3D8 is still incomplete for various reasons.

Its Glide support though, is superb. Not bad for something emulating the entire Glide rendering pipeline on pixel shader units.

Emberburn

we didn’t even know that GameCube was designed with 3D stereoscopic capabilities until 2011, so you never know what experiments were going on at NCL during the GameCube days.

Nintendo likes to waste money.

I bet Dolphin wouldn't support a 3D tech demo for the GCN.

Boy_vs_Girl

A rampant madness encompasses emulation. Can you feel it?

haveahappyday

I'm not. It won't.

iluvmen

Gamecube was more powerful than the PS2

And the N64 was more powerful than the PS1. They fucked it up by using a small storage medium, and they did the same fucking thing with the Gamecube, like they didn't even learn from their mistakes.

get Eternal SPU and disble xbrz

girlDog

Don't think I have xbrz enabled, or at least, I don't see a setting for it in Eternal SPU.

RavySnake

xBRZ is a filter in the ini which is enabled by default. It could be affecting your framerate causing stuttering issues.

Booteefool

It's not creating an .ini file. Shit.

MPmaster

its in the inis folder. The filter is a graphical one. it has nothing to do with the sound plugin

Firespawn

So...which one of these settings do I fuck with? I manually turned on nearest neighbor scaling days ago because leaving it off makes text and other sprites blurry as fuck.

set xBRZscale to 0

BinaryMan

Eternal SPU just made things worse. Sound repeats during the intro logos. In-game, there's no music and sound effects cut out completely after a second. It also introduces even more crackling.

Guess I just have to settle for less-than-ideal sound emulation. Appreciate the help anyway, user.

Not using GLideN64.
Last time I tried, it doesn't even run V8 2nd Offense.. GLideN64 is based on glN64 which is terrible and he didn't even bother fixing all of the regressions. Does RE even work yet?

kizzmybutt

N64 is a platform where it's worth it to just get a flash cart. N64 emulation is still trash aside from big name titles and a flash cart will only set you back the cost of about 3 big name, expensive titles.

Does RA have .zip support or should I use standalones?
I don't think that it has .zip support but I haven't tried it out yet and can't right now.

Which SNES emulator?
If it doesn't have a special chip, use the VC. For games with special chips, use catsfc.

Should I use SNES VC injects for most games?
Yes, you should.

How good is ReARMed on it?
It's passable but most games don't run at full-speed last time I tried.

What game are you trying to play

no drivers on Linux

My experience with Linux has always been like
plug shit in
just fucking werks exactly how you want

Meanwhile on Windows it's usually like
plug it in
nothing happens
came with a disc but I don't have a disc drive
go to the website and find installer
needs fucking .net
finally get it installed
works like shit
have to use third party tools to fix it
have to run Windows in developer mode to install unsigned drivers

But then it's always like that, like when I needed adb for my phone
Linux
good to go

Windows
windows doesn't have drivers for phone when in recovery have to manually download them
official ones don't work for some reason
find some sketchy ass hacked drivers from XDA
have to run Windows in developer mode to install unsigned drivers
finally fucking works

so epsxe has a vsync option that i can't disable anywhere? or is pete's plugin

what an awful fucking emulator

but yeah you're right, Suikoden 1 is trite and im considering to just skip to 2

Fuzzy_Logic

fuck off my name is melissa

Techpill

so epsxe has a vsync option that i can't disable anywhere
Epsxe has no vsync options last I checked. It was probably your video card forcing it since you weren't getting the problem using the software renderer which is CPU dependent instead of GPU dependent.

idontknow

But how? The option was Use 3d application setting, not forced on. I had no such issues disabling vsync in other games.

According to the guys in #retroarch, both zip and 7z work

I don't mind VC injections if that is the best there is.

Inmate

What's better for emulation, a i7 6700k or a i7 6850k

PurpleCharger

the i7 6700k is better because more cores != better for emulation, it's clocked higher, and it's skylake instead of broadwell, so more ipc. all of this could have been easily found if you actually researched shit.

if your going to work on a NES emulator, learn 6502 assembly and how the processor works, etc. learn about the architecture of the processor before diving into anything

farquit

Yes it can. That's literally why they added the align sprite and round sprite options.

Burnblaze

Whining about the fact that PS-2 video hardware isn't identical to PC video hardware

You can either offload to the video hardware or you can have accurate emulation. Take your pick (PCSX2 does actually offer both options).

There's a reason we'll probably see a working PS4 emulator before even a half-working PS3 emulator.

MPmaster

yeah i've always found it weird that people bash pcsx2 the most when the ps2 had the most exotic hardware compared to pc(at least for that generation).

why does it surprise anyone that it has issues?

AwesomeTucker

5mileys

No it can't and those options are for games rendered even at native resolution you retard.

BinaryMan

Namco games render the complete frame in vertical strips. The spaces between strips are smaller than a pixel when rendered at native resolution, but when rendered at a higher resolution the sample rate can be high enough for the gaps between strips to become visible.

Gregory had a post about it that was more detailed about those specific games, but this one kinda covers the same thing.

So, my DS got busted and I made the mistake of trying to emulate it. How come DeSmuME is so awful? I can't get half-decent sound out of this shit for the life of me. It's mostly okay but whenever two channels interlace it starts crackling like a dying poodle, and yes I am using cosine. And the worst part is that basically nobody at all is working on DS emulation at this point. Hopefully endrift will extend mGBA to the DS once he's done with the GB.

Handhelds are always more complex because they have to shove everything in those tiny cases, home consoles on the other hand are generally more straightforward.

You probably put the bios in the wrong place. Where did you put it? You could also try launching mednafen from the CLI and just read the error message. But the BIOS is pretty much the only thing that will keep the PSX core from launching at all.

I have all the bios there. 5500, 5502, and for the NA one I have 7003 instead of the 5501 since it's supposed to be the same. All .bin files are named the way they are in the filename box on the graph.

RavySnake

Weird. Maybe it isn't the BIOS after all, but guesswork isn't going to go anywh. Could you try running mednafen from a shell and checking the actual output from the command? (If you don't know how to do that, just run 'cmd' without quotes from the run window, then 'cd "C:\path\to\mednafen"' without single quotes, but keep the double quotes in the path, then 'mednafen.exe "path\to\psx\rom\game.cue"' without single quotes, it should either work or output an error to the console).

Firespawn

Metroid: Lightyear works correctly now, too.

Gigastrength

The Pilotwings fix wasn't a hack, though. It added support for a special depth write mode that a handful of games use. RE2 uses it extensively to copy prebaked depth buffers into ram, which is quite interesting. RE2's problem is it uses some wacky techniques for drawing backgrounds.

There's literally no reason why it can't be ported to libretro. They just need to properly port GLideN64 first.

I also don't want viruses or adware and have people audit the code

The big argument is that closed-source emulators keep the knowledge gone once they die, and they force the inevitable open emulator to develop the same stuff twice before it surpasses Cemu (see: No$GBA and DeSmuME, SSF and Yabause, Magic Engine and Mednafen's PCE core, the list goes on and on). Open source is safer because it guarantees that the least amount of work will have to be duplicated in the long run. Ignoramus All he ever did was throw a child into my enclosure, I'll take that as a no PurpleCharger But do we know if it will always be closed-source? Maybe they're just ripping off money from people while they're developing it and as soon as it's done they will stop and open it. BunnyJinx Yes, maybe. That's what happened with DeSmuME, after all. But maybe is not good enough. And as long as they're making money, they have a pretty damn good incentive to keep everything secret for as long as possible.

I made those for a reason. BunnyJinx You bring it up every time you get a chance. You're like the Mrs. Garrison of emulation. Dreamworx ok that appears to work DeathDog No, other people bring it up, and then I have to defend myself. Are you fucking stupid? Inmate Don't you want to play Wii U games? No, pirate kiddie. I for one would like to see the Wii U well emulated and preserved for the future. If I wanted to play games right now, I'd just buy the hardware. Nude_Bikergirl I don't understand the usage of PCem, is there some sort of readme because I couldn't find one. I just want to emulate the best computer for dos. eGremlin wait a sec, I see this picture of some guys pcem from vogons and it has a titlebar? How come mine doesn't? that would at least help a little Evil_kitten You bring it up for the same reason that you like to brag about being underage. And when anyone calls you on it, youthrow a tantrum. Your schtick is old, tripfag. Snarelure wtf where is all this shit coming from??? Burnblaze mine BunnyJinx It is magic Snarelure I don't though??? I have no fucking clue where you get this information from, because it's fucking patently false. w8t4u Stop using such an out-of-date version of PCem, holy shit. Also, use 86Box instead. iluvmen You admitted to it in this thread: boards.fireden.net/vg/thread/153063237/#153063237 Which the mods deleted. Honestly they should have just banned you while they were at it. How does it feel knowing there's not a single community that wants to put up with your shit? Playboyize That's clearly a guy posting someone ELSE's screenshots m8 Poker_Star I just searched my name, and I had never admitted to being underage. You read wrong. Try again, dipshit. Inmate Reminder tripfags should leave. We're not their support forum. Nude_Bikergirl which the mods deleted Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit. Good thing you don't cover your tracks on Plebbit. BunnyJinx wow so he tried making a PS2 emulator after bashing other devs? What a poser... eGremlin What? If you bash a dev (or complain about their project in any way), they will TELL you to make your own emulator. There's nothing hypocritical about trying to do so. That's not what's wrong in that screenshot. BunnyJinx Stop using such an out-of-date version of PCem um I just compiled it Methnerd nah he announced it by bashing other devs Dreamworx Best SNES emulator for android? GoogleCat RetroArch, Snes9x core WebTool Thanks user, I got Snes9x EX+ Carnalpleasure This must be the work of an enemy stand! kizzmybutt NVIDIA GPU Ignoramus Don't tell me you actually use AMD. Don't do that to yourself. Boy_vs_Girl I don't see a problem. BunnyJinx More and more emulation has a rift driven between the haves and have nots. Before all that mattered was your CPU, then later you just needed a relatively good GPU. Now it actually matters what brand of GPU you have in addition to its power. Firespawn Make sure no one tries to jew you into paying money emus. The guy who made SNES9x EX actually sells "his" other emulators on the android store, and they're not even his - he ports other people's source code and illegally profits from it. kizzmybutt If you can't meet this one basic requirement of emulation don't bash other people for doing so without you. Bet you have one of AMD's practical joke CPUs too. Poker_Star First they came for the piss poor CPU owners, and I did not speak up because I had a good CPU. Then they came for the iGPU users, and I did not speak up because I bought a real GPU. Then they came for the AMD users, and I did not speak up because I bought an Nvidia GPU like /v/ told me. Then they came for the non-GTX Titan X users. And there was no one left to speak up for me. Bidwell I just realized today at the bar that the performance meme is actually REALLY important for the future actually. Yeah I don't give a shit about poorfags right NOW, but in 50 years the only way to use some of these emulators will be to emulate the current OSes that run them. At massive performance cost. Then nobody will be laughing anymore. Shit like SNES will be safe but nobody's going to redo the nightmare of PS2 emulation again and again as the world moves on, nor will they bother with the "losers" of each gen like Saturn or obscure shit. kizzmybutt You'll be dead in 50 years user, and kids will be playing fuck you're waifu VR simulators. Why do you care about 50 years from now? LuckyDusty I'm not American or African, I will be alive in 50 years Methnerd African you mean nuropean. Lunatick Makes no difference to me. Burnblaze If you're old enough to use this site you will be 70 years old. At 70 you won't give a shit about video games because your reflexes will have degenerated to the point where you can't even beat Super Mario Bros 3 Skullbone Actually I will have to be within like a 3 year range between Canadian life expectancy and American life expectancy. So in 50 years I will be over 78 and less than 81. This is all information I have given you. And I'll still be able to beat Super Mario World even if I can't beat 3 at that age, so I'm ok. Garbage Can Lid You won't be able to beat World at that stage either. I gave 3 as an example of an easy game. PurpleCharger I just recently got ePSXe (v2.0.5.) and I got it running just fine. I decided to dl Crash Team Racing so I could play it with a friend of mine, and I downloaded DS4Windows so I can use my PS4 controller as a secondary (my 360 controller is the primary). I set up both controllers and tested them out individually and they both work fine. So I booted up CTR to see if they both worked in tandem, and they do. Here's where it gets weird though: There's no audio at all in CTR now. It worked fine before I set up the second controller, but now there's nothing. I tried unplugging the controllers and plugging them back in, no luck. I restarted eSPXe and only left one controller in the port...no sound. Did I break the ISO somehow? I have no idea what's going on and google doesn't help. Flameblow read the fucking wiki you piece of shit Harmless_Venom ePSXe Evilember Ok well probably Final Fantasy games then. They're low on reflexes and most of them are also very easy and thoughtless, which is important because my mind will have degenerated by some unignorable amount too. BunnyJinx Yes, you will definitely be able to enjoy JRPGs at that age. And accuracy is important in JRPGs for their beautiful visuals and music. FastChef JRPGs: The Only Genre that Stands the Test of Time Our generation will be chillin' out in the nursing home, but instead of watching the weather channel we'll be playing Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy VI Inmate tfw you can't move well anymore and have to watch someone play Chrono Trigger BADLY BlogWobbles yfw the modern push for non interactive "games" is done by aging jews who can't play real video games Ignoramus That doesn't help me. You still haven't directed me towards where to look for the underlying issue. I used ePSXe because I've used it on other computers and I'm somewhat familiar with it. Thanks for being hostile assholes. It's like I'm really on /g/! viagrandad Walter Matthau: Stop using Marle you old coot, she's the worst character! Jack Lemmon: No, look, I play with the characters I like in the story, not for some crazed optimal route like you! cum2soon The underlying issue is that you're using ePSXe Burnblaze That doesn't help me Nothing can help you if you are a retard Thanks for being hostile assholes "I won't do even basic reading but I expect everyone to treat me like royalty because the world revolves around me" get a trip so I can filter you JunkTop That mindset I can live with, and Marle is a component of the best triple tech (the only fucking one actually better than 3 separate actions or 1 and a dual tech: Lifeline), but if they don't KNOW, or just suck balls at using what they do have, it will bother me. Crazy_Nice Use PCSX-PGXP if you want the hi-res purdy graphics, or Mednafen if you want accurate emulation. ePSXe has no place ZeroReborn every question in the thread is newbies asking shit about epsxe every other post is just shitpost WebTool Remember when ePSXe 2.0 or whatever launched and they had a "marketing push" like that of a console release where they came out with hilarious faked statistics that it was more accurate than any other PS1 emulator? That was great. Raving_Cute That has to do with upscaling at all, not render resolution. Supergrass This was unironically posted on Veeky Forums /v/ in May of 2004. King_Martha /v/ existed in 2004? I thought it was created later. ZeroReborn If not /v/ then perhaps /b/. I can't recall whether it took til 2005 for /v/ to be created or not. SniperGod /v/[1] (Video Games) was first created in October 2004, Must have been /b/ then since the modified date says May. Too bad modified dates are reset on uploading. Gigastrength You realize 1085778680035 is a timestamp, right? Deadlyinx Not one in any language I can read Dreamworx It's unix time, plus milliseconds That number is the number of milliseconds since 1970-01-01 midnight UTC, which makes it 2004-05-28 at 9:11:20.035 UTC Sir_Gallonhead Thanks for the learning Fuzzy_Logic bump Ignoramus Filters or not, I still would. Bidwell What game CouchChiller Azure Dreams. Methnerd On the one hand I feel bad for you; then on the other hand I see you're still using fucking ePSXe and my sympathy just evaporates, like the atmosphere of Pluto during spring. BinaryMan ... nor will they bother with the "losers" of each gen like Saturn or obscure shit. They solved this problem years ago you moron. It's called open-source software. MPmaster CEMU 1.7.0 when eGremlin hey what the fuck, that poodle has like 2 canines in the same side of the upper jaw, I got a dog and that ain't normal kizzmybutt Oh thanks TurtleCat Best way to emulate sakura wars? Was gonna go saturn but it seems to be JP only. Luckily it seems to have been released for every console under the sun. Anyone know what the best version is? Bidwell Hold on, Pluto has an atmosphere? RumChicken It has one. But it's very feeble. takes2long Just been doing some research. Seems like only the newest game has been localised and there aren't any fan translations. Oh well, guess I'll just play the Wii one. hairygrape How do I get the right analog working with a steam controller in retroarch? Booteefool Open another emulator like pcsx2 or dolphin that lets you map inputs by pressing the button. See what it tells you the button/stick movement is. Map that function to a right stick x+, y+, etc. using autohotkey and joy2key. Spamalot desuarchive.org/vr/thread/3506274/ Blargg is a pseudonym for ZSKnight Wat whereismyname Could be true, and that makes byuu an even bigger joke then since most of the key advances in bsnes and one of the things it brought to emulation that was really an advance was blargg's APU. Face it, byuu is a pathetic joke compared to zsKnight. That guy truly did nearly everything of any worth for SNES emulation if it turns out blargg is just a pseudonym. Byuu is a pathetic script kiddie romhacker that barely knows highschool math and did rote trial and error to get his emulator even running. Stupidasole board.byuu.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=1317&start=30#p31656 A bad troll is one who just stalks and harasseses people with obscenities and trying to throw everything they've ever said back at their face. They're pathetic and no one really takes them seriously. Mostly people just put up with them and ignore them, because they don't want to incur their wrath next. Hmmm idontknow Should we just kill byuu Lord_Tryzalot cum2soon I don't understand Playboyize There's too much behind-the-scenes shit going on it seems WebTool Part of it is he just isn't spelling out the specifics of what he doesn't like there but probably has in their IRC. It's hard to tell what problems he has with the reicast team from a more generalized post like that. happy_sad skmp lost is job and is trying his best not to become a hobo, SP called him out for that and managed to burn all chances of ever having an open-source DC emu that's not shit Look at what we did with mupen64plus too ever since top fucking kek Dreamworx reicast is still shit compared to nulldc (nulldc being reicast alpha), and in nulldc they already made numerous regressions where the last version of nulldc randomly crashes shenmue, and those regressions then spilled pver into reicast as well. so you still have people making special shenmue versions of nulldc that just go a few revisions back to not have the game randomly crash all the time. he also never delivered on a promised psp port, ps3 port, wii port, etc. none of that code is vailable anywhere either. its becoming pretty evident they have no clue what they are doing. viagrandad It's so feeble it freezes to the fucking ground in a planet-wide snow once every Plutonian year. Bidwell its becoming pretty evident they have no clue what they are doing. And SP does? He can't even keep his own cores updated Playboyize still ignoring the glupen64 core eh? glide64 cannot emulate that shadow correctly, get over it already. Sharpcharm promised source? Spazyfool skmp hasn't done much of anything with reicast in quite a while. He's also made dumb decisions about prioritizing mobile devices. Pilotwings was fixed in ParaLLEl and in GLupen. Glide64 can only fix it by cheats that remove the shadow entirely. TurtleCat still ignoring the glupen64 core eh? Not an official libretro core. It has nothing to do with frankenmupen and Squarepusher. StrangeWizard How is he trying not to become a hobo? By selling X or Y out of Reicast? Does skmp live in Murika? Because if so, SP should have mercy, as he can't just ride it out easily like in SP's socialist paradise. Nude_Bikergirl At least we can backport the GPU features that he bothered to implement for D3D9 in nulldc but won't for reicast because 'it would make it slow on a raspberry pi' FFS. And then when you ask him why we can't touch the GL rendering code it's 'because I worked for a Hong Kong company once, they wrote this code and they claim ownership over it now, therefore, I need to appropriate copyright over this code and have it all tied back to my company ,etc'. Riiiiiight. Another byuu in the making then. Sorry, not playing that game. And honestly, that 'GL code' was a lazy and bad port of the nullDC D3D9 code. It's likely the story is just complete bullshit. WebTool Blargg real name is Shai Green, this is clearly not the same guy as ZsKnight. Unsurprisingly, Byuu haters are the first to fall for hoaxes and conspiracy theories, which tells a lot about their intellectual capacities. TurtleCat because I worked for a Hong Kong company once, they wrote this code and they claim ownership over it now Wat Crazy_Nice We already implemented RTT (framebuffer readback) in the libretro port which was stubbed out in the official reicast core for unknown reasons. There is still fogging, clipping to go, all unimplemented because god knows why, it's 'slow' on a Raspberry Pi and he only wants to target a GLES2 codepath. But he does have time to work on an experimental software renderer meanwhile, which is even more broken than the GL renderer. The problem is, as stated, he just views it as 'fun' and 'fun' involves apparently having people crowdfund him tinkering with frontend code instead of getting to the nitty gritty of his project and doing what people want him to do, improve core DC emulation code. Honestly, I think he stubs out these GPU features so he has something to sell to companies whenever they need to have Jet Set Radio running on XBLA/PSN. It's probably some bullshit like that, and this is just some funny cover story around that which he tells contributors. whereismyname Glide64 can only fix it by cheats that remove the shadow entirely. Which is what standalone M64P and PJ64 do in order to keep the game playable. How is he trying not to become a hobo? Focusing on RL stuff and earning money instead of sitting at home working on reicast. Not everyone can live off welfare like SP does. Does skmp live in Murika? Greece SP should have mercy He never shows mercy, just look how he's still mad at byuu for things that happened over 5 years ago. Lunatick Are you SP? TechHater How do you know that for a fact? People use different pseudonyms on the Internet all the time. "Could be true" != "I believe it's 100% fact" It seems byuu asslickers lack reading comprehension. Burnblaze He never shows mercy, just look how he's still mad at byuu for things that happened over 5 years ago. Him selling licenses to Hyperkin and letting them make closed source spinoffs of Higan/bsnes is NOT something that is happening 5 years ago, but NOW. And BTW, if Hyperkin does manage to improve anything in bsnes/higan, you won't get those patches back, since he sold them a closed-source license exemption. So that's your 'hero' right there. Meanwhile the pathetic hack didn't even write most of bsnes himself, Mr. zsfuckingKnight himself apparently wrote the only claim to fame bsnes even had, the blargg APU. He's a maintainer and community organizer in sheep's clothing. Need_TLC I did find his latest project interesting, however. I mean, he'll prolly find a way to fuck that up too, but it's the first thing he's done in years I gave enough of a fuck about to even read up on. iluvmen Not everyone can live off welfare like SP does. Is there proof this is true? Poker_Star Him selling licenses to Hyperkin and letting them make closed source spinoffs of Higan/bsnes is NOT something that is happening 5 years ago, but NOW. It's his own fucking emulator dude And BTW, if Hyperkin does manage to improve anything in bsnes/higan, you won't get those patches back, since he sold them a closed-source license exemption. Why should I care again? So that's your 'hero' right there. Meanwhile the pathetic hack didn't even write most of bsnes himself, Mr. zsfuckingKnight himself apparently wrote the only claim to fame bsnes even had, the blargg APU. You realize there's more to SNES emulation than just audio code, right? Also, blargg gave him full rights over his code so it still belongs to byuu. He's a maintainer and community organizer in sheep's clothing. At least he's not a a pathetic stalker. iluvmen byuu asslickers lack reading comprehension. Good to know I'm not one of them, then Believe what you want but using this narrowed logic, you could build conspiracy theories about anyone actually. You at least need minimum proofs and facts to start suspecting someone to hide between different pseudo, which do not exist here so it's just shitposting IMO w8t4u Believe what you want but using this narrowed logic, you could build conspiracy theories about anyone actually. You at least need minimum proofs and facts to start suspecting someone to hide between different pseudo, which do not exist here so it's just shitposting IMO. /emugen/ users do stuff like this all the time but it's only a problem now for some reason iluvmen blah blah byuu did nothing wrong blah Good goyim Sharpcharm Nope, there isn't, Never collected a welfare check once in my life. BTW, the only people who think that are people living in America who think The Netherlands is some socialist paradise where everybody lives on the dole smoking a joint. The Netherlands is actually far more conservative even than America. If you want a picture of the 'real Netherlands' outside of fairytales, imagine something like every politician on the left being a Libertarian Republican, a few oddball Donald Trumps thrown in the mix, and the 'right' being actually more left-leaning than the right, then add on top of that 51% income taxes, 23% VAT taxes, overleveraged real estate prices, a healthcare that is being stripped down to Obamacare levels and worse, etc., etc. I still read this fool byuu talking about how he would like to live in The Netherlands because 'oh it's more open to LBGTs/etc'. Dude, you as an expat will be situated near a couple of Morrocans and Turks and if they ever spot you holding hands with another dude they will fuck you up Ottoman-style. I am saying that just to temper your expectations of what you think these 'freedoms' are that you're expecting here. It's mob rule in most of these inner cities because the police has long stopped surveilling, they are too busy extracting money out of their cash cow public on the highways where millions and billions are being made every year giving everybody fines and tickets who speeds 1km over the speeding limit, or some other technicality. At least he's not a a pathetic stalker. I don't stalk this loser, he plays the sympathy card one too many times where he pretends he is being 'stalked'. Never once did I stalk this sad loser, the only time it became an issue is when I found out he had betrayed us with the Hyperkin situation. This was at the exact same time he had promised to one of us that he would be helping him fight this in court if one of us would like to bring it that for. Fuck that dude. FastChef Nah, now you're just practicing apologetics. I was willing to ignore byuu's copious amounts of bullfuckery when he could at least function as a useful asshole. But doing business with scum like Hyperkin is just fucking wrong. It's not even the "closed-source exception" per se (though that itself is questionable), it's that he granted that extraordinary privilege to shady Chinese fuckwads, after making it abundantly clear he knew just who he was taking money from. At that point the line was crossed. Sharpcharm Still mad about Byuu, SP? Move on seriously, this is becoming ridiculous and makes you look like an obsessed tard, and this is coming from someone that actually appreciate you. Nobody besides you fucking care if Byuu is making money with bsnes or is asking for donations. It would be different if you were one of the dev who left his copytight to him but afaik, that's not the case, so why the hell does it matters to you if nobody who give code to bsnes has issue with that? Lord_Tryzalot I don't care about debating some obsessive fanboy, L. Ron Byuubard like his namesake has many people who can no longer think rationally and it's a waste of time debating them. RavySnake Drama is always best in the morning MPmaster betrayed us with the Hyperkin situation I didn't knew you were part of BSNES project Carnalpleasure Him taking advantage of the situation and them not bringing it up yet is not 'acceptance', that is taking advantage of them. Your thinking process is exactly the same as your average slimy, scummy, two-bit entrepreneurial scam artist who takes a music or video clip from some artist and uses it to promote his own product and then justifies his actions by going 'if they don't complain [i.e. they haven't found out about it yet] or if they don't sue me, they don't care and I can use it'. Pathetic, you know you are full of shit yet you justify your shitty actions with stuff you patently know is bullshit. haveahappyday I hate all emudevs Burnblaze Trannies will save the emu scene Fuzzy_Logic Reminder that PPSSPP-libretro is out of date Reminder that beetle-psx is out of date Reminder that beetle-saturn is out of date Reminder that desmume-libretro is out of date Reminder that MAME-libretro is out of date Reminder that bsnes-libretro is out of date Reminder that SP never delivers Need_TLC Contrary to popular belief an emudev's main produce is Drama, emulators are just a byproduct.

It would help if zeromus took more of a leading role in getting the libretro port in upstream, I don't like having to do all the work there. Reminder that MAME-libretro is out of date Well, it's a terrible codebase to wade through, and as part of my efforts when I would finally fix the latest issue (the graphics being rendered with a screwed-up aspect ratio), upon doing git pull I would probably be subjected by tons more crappy frontend refactors which would mean even more wasted time. I'll try to get to it but honestly I hate MAME as a codebase, multiple other people whom I hold in high regard agree with me on this. Thankfully it's not worth much outside of arcade emulation or this would be a bigger issue. Reminder that bsnes-libretro is out of date bsnes-libretro is complete despite whatever byuu says. BTW, funny story, byuu made a regression in higan/bsnes v1.01 which actually hasn't been in SNES9x since 1.50. That's how bad these regressions are getting these days. He fucked up SA-1 IRQ handling in Super Mario RPG which led to it hanging on the power up screen. So much about '100% compatibility'. But that's what you get when you don't regression test and blow smoke up people's ass about all this 'accuracy' you are offering. King_Martha beetle-psx Can't be out of date because it's ahead of upstream VisualMaster It's not because it's a fork that only focuses on SNES and no worthwile changes have been made since v94 upstream while several enhancements have added to mercury. Spamalot It's more about making fun of your mental issues, SP. Most people here probably do not give a fuck about Byuu or "defending" his name on an anonymous board, they just think your are a pathetic nerd who is literally obsessed in proving he has more value than any other well established developer. You are clearly nuts or deliberately avoiding to see your own issues if you think we are just "fanboys" taking sides or blindly following a "leader" or an "hero". New_Cliche Apparently hires rendering and overclock count for nothin' TreeEater no worthwile changes have been made since v94 upstream There are also several improvements to SNES emulation. Most significantly is support for mid-scanline changes to the background mode in the accuracy profile. SFC: added MSU1 audio resume support SNES: fixed manifest for Star Ocean SNES: fixed manifest for Rockman X2,X3 SFC: fixed bug in SharpRTC leap year calculations SFC: emulated new research findings for the S-DD1 coprocessor SFC: fixed CPU emulation-mode wrapping bug with pei, [dp], [dp]+y instructions [AWJ] Carnalpleasure Blablabla, projecting by a 4chanite. How cute. "well established developer." you seriously think byuu matters outside of this small circlejerk that you call a 'scene'? It's pretty much low-grade amateur code he pushes out anyway. No company would hire this dude. He is considered a non-asset in corporate circles. iluvmen Apparently hires rendering and overclock count for nothin' Stop saying it's ahead when it clearly isn't What's the point of highres if the games don't even fucking work? TalkBomber it's an "obscure glitches matter more than high resolution rendering episode" viagrandad BTW, you're not replying to me in this instance :) So you have multiple people actually telling you the same thing, it's 'ahead' in certain areas. Yeah it doesn't work on obscure RPG Maker clone thingy for which exists a separate libretro core anyway that is better in every way (EasyRPG). Honestly, backport the shit yourself. It's not exactly hard and you would make yourself useful once in your life instead of being a stain on society. Methnerd The "high resolution rendering" in beetle psx is fucking shit. There is literally no reason why those games haven't been fixed. Spamalot Beetle PSX actually supports PBP files (encrypted and non-encrypted). Even that standalone doesn't do. How about that when talking about 'the game s don't even fucking work' eh? farquit But the games do work. All you're citing are edge cases literally no one cares about except when it gets used as a talking point to shit on libretro/SP/RetroArch or whatever. Inmate I'll try looking into the issues and try to backport them but honestly, a lot of you who like being anally retentive about these issues should try looking into coding one of these days. None of the stuff that has to be done to fix this is particularly hard, it's just labor intensive. Too many of you are just entitled and consumerist and do nothing.

Don't tell me you are actually following Higan development just to find regressions and bugs you can use in internet discussions? This is kinda pathetic, dude. I mean, I used to respect you but this is getting really low. You likely have better things to do than losing your time here leading some crusade against random emudevs that you don't like, right? All these shitposters are also probably just trying to bait you so they can keep this thread alive, just sayin'... girlDog The main issue is that syncing upstream with beetle is a lot more complex that it should. Mainly because SP likes to make many small modification/refactoring with no concern for merging upstream changes and because Ryphecha can't into VCS and just drops tarballs from time to time. The combination of those two things makes beetle basically a hard fork at this point, at least in my opinion. MPmaster I am not even the same guy you have talking to. You really need to work on your issues m8 girlDog 2x resolution in software is working fine for most games. And simias' GL renderer is improving, with PGXP support in the works. Is Fantastic Pinball Kyuutenkai really that important to you? SniperGod PPSSPP and MAME use git and they still can't sync them up BunnyJinx yeah, i am pathetic because i pay attention to higan/bsnes regressions that get mentioned as 'fixes' in new changelogs. how pathetic of me, right? instead, we should talk about peoples gender or sexual orientations of devs here forever, and other shit that has nothing to do with code or emulation. i dunno dude, you cant make me feel bad by saying 'i am making fun of you blabla' when i willingly go down in the trenches on an anonboard that doesnt exactly have a reputation for having the sharpest knifes in the toolbox. GoogleCat Glide64 can only fix it by cheats that remove the shadow entirely. Which is what standalone M64P and PJ64 do in order to keep the game playable. Well, that hack is only enabled for Jabo's and Glide64. When you load GLideN64 into PJ64, the cheat is disabled automatically and the plugin emulates the shadow accurately. MPmaster PPSSPP is probably a lot trickier to port because it uses a hardware renderer. Don't know about MAME. Sir_Gallonhead Is Fantastic Pinball Kyuutenkai really that important to you? Accuracy is and Final Fantasy 8 and Tactics Ogre Inmate mfw I'm still using MAME 0.170 libretro that works flawlessly feels goodman Deadlyinx people pick RA apart for regressions all the time on /emugen/ but when SP does it to higan it's suddenly a bad thing Nice double standards Carnalpleasure Is that porn TechHater Final Fantasy VIII glitch is extremely minor and probably wouldn't be encountered normally.

Garbage Can Lid Go read Endrift's Tumblr Deadlyinx I'm too lazy to do that hairygrape No, you are pathetic because you are taking all these manchild arguing way too much seriously and people can feel how insecure and emotional you are about such nerdy topics. Emulation and video-games are about having fun, just like making you mad on an anonymous board because it's so easy to make you lose your temper. And it seems like you have even more serious issues if you think you have are on a "mission" to educate people here. binary logic That's OK, dude, you don't have to understand everything being discussed here. It's sweet you are trying to be part of the discussion still. TalkBomber lostmypassword tl;dr Lord_Tryzalot Jesus just stop posting already. Your double standards are fucking dumb. Inmate No double standard, that's just you again reading it wrong and thinking everything is binary simple with people taking one side or another. People following retroarch issues reports daily just to shitpost on emugen are as much pathetic as SP actively monitoring Byuu's board to find about Higan regressions in changelogs. Emberfire You can also ignore my posts if it does not suit your binary vision of the world. PackManBrainlure But I'm non-binary PurpleCharger Wew hairygrape no u Fuzzy_Logic Emulation and video-games are about having fun, just like making you mad on an anonymous board because it's so easy to make you lose your temper. I'm not mad dude. There's literally nothing that you can say to me that can make me mad. Inbetween the people who are attracted to these dark corners of the Internet, pedophiles, weaboos, people who dress up as furries and people who engage in gender dysphoria, honestly, it's all water off a duck's back to me. I'll happily be called 'pathetic' by such people and even get to laugh a little about the apparent hypocrisy and lack of self awareness involved :) Nojokur The keyword was "worthwhile". All those things are either irrelevant or very minor. bsnes has been complete since like v87 for all intents and purposes. Stupidasole That's not true user, he would've released it into the public domain if it was complete. GoogleCat I don't stalk this loser, he plays the sympathy card one too many times where he pretends he is being 'stalked' SP, you bring up so many facts about his life it's clear you read every single thing he writes on the internet Stupidasole OK, so is SP in this thread now or what? Techpill He never left. idontknow It ain't hard to know stuff he posts pubicly on Twitter... AwesomeTucker You'd think he'd have the decency to put on a fuckin' trip. Raving_Cute Beetle, Mednafen or Mednafen HW for PSX games? Bidwell can't have plausible deniability then ZeroReborn mednafen mainline, until SP fixes his shit in Beetle. Skullbone Depends on your needs and the game in question Spazyfool Then what good is he? Why engage with or use his shit at all? Inmate He is frustrated at being unable to fulfill his goals and is looking for an outlet because he is insecure about it. Lord_Tryzalot Beetle. Hardware isn't up to scratch yet and beetle is much easier to use than the standalone. LuckyDusty He can't act that way and libretro still be successful. So, if true, he will need to cut that shit out. Bidwell So I'm trying to play Mega Man X3 with the Project Zero hack and the MSU1 hack that allows for the PS1/Saturn ost on retroarch but I remembered that BSNES has problems loading the game at all due to it being too accurate or whatever. The MSU1 hack has compatibility with the Project Zero hack though so does it just not work with the Retroarch core? Do I have to use Higan? I figured it'd be the same shit. TechHater Big bad SP killed my dog >:( Deadlyinx Solved my own problem. MSU hack doesn't require the standalone patch, it's an all-in-one. Lunatick user finally passed today, he wanted to say that his favorite shader is crt-royale-ntsc. He genuinely spoke those words to me, and they were some of his last, forever in our hearts. Booteefool On closer inspection it didn't, unable to stay in control of Zero whenever you want. Dunno what the problem is and Higan won't even let me import the rom probably since it's hacked. Dunno what do. PurpleCharger what a great emulator. Skullbone how come CEMU got good so quickly while other emulators have slower progress? Might be because the devs don't spend time talking about someone else instead of improving whatever they're doing Spamalot Unsurprisingly, Byuu haters are the first to fall for hoaxes and conspiracy theories, which tells a lot about their intellectual capacities. You came this to conclusion based off one person's opinion Smh. I hope you're trolling. eGremlin internal docs girlDog Anyone know how to fix this? I'm using the latest version of PPSSPP with default settings. DeathDog In that case, why even live in the Netherlands? FastChef reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/5464se/the_future_of_jaguar_emulation/ the libretro core is not good because games that worked on the standalone crash here. the crash is due to libretro itself, rather than the core kizzmybutt Why would he follow someone he hates on twitter and more over, post anywhere byuu is posting something related to his emulator? Masochism?Unassumed fascination? Frustrated love-hate relationship? 5mileys Reddit r/emulation knowing what they're talking about You have to go back. eGremlin Given the fact that libretro is exactly one header file I somehow doubt that. DeathDog No. It's most likely a flaw in the integration code that is implementing libretro. 5mileys post anywhere byuu is posting something related to his emulator They don't post in the same place anywhere besides Reddit. Maybe Veeky Forums too, but byuu blocks our threads. Fuzzy_Logic Kill yourself. No one cares. Spamalot You HAVE to go back, mad little Redditor. Nude_Bikergirl Make me cunt. We already took over your wiki, what are YOU going to do about it? Killing yourself is the only option you have. hairygrape wow thanks cemu this really tells me a lot about what hardware i need to run this ZeroReborn Why make it Windows only and then go with OGL? TechHater StrangeWizard I don't know If they were open source this shit wouldn't happen But they don't want to go to jail I understand Nojokur Yet PPSSPP core is still a complete fucking mess. Its easy to come to the conclusion that SP just doesn't know how to make it work decently. StonedTime Who cares PPSSPP is fine standalone TechHater Who cares <emulator> is fine standalone. eGremlin Do you guys fret and obsess over emulators and their devs more than you actually play games? GoogleCat We're not kids anymore user, do you really think we play videogames at our ages? Bidwell Emulation General Skullbone Who cares Real hardware is fine ZeroReborn higan isn't fine standalone, so i use it in retroarch mupen isn't fine standalone, so i use it retroarch mednafen is fine but ra is easier for me and the nes emulators are all fine but have shit filters and looking at them plain honestly hurts my eyes so i use retroarch FastChef Real Hardware is dying Techpill Its fine. Evilember I'll kill yourself indeed. New_Cliche Real hardware will live forever. what is repair Harmless_Venom More like I dread having to look at it again, it's not nice having to jump through all these hoops in somebody else's codebase you know. if it's so simple why don't you do it yourself? StrangeWizard make a PSP emulator have it not able to run PSXtoPSP files 10/10 great emulator VisualMaster Why make it Windows only and then go with OGL? that is pretty dumb. New_Cliche So I downloaded RA after like 1,5 years again, copied the 3 BIOS files for Mednafen, test started NTSC-U Xenogears... works. Now I try PAL Blaze & Blade - Eternal Quest (Germany) and I only get a black screen. CRC32 matches the one on redump.org. Any ideas? TreeEater They said they would work with you (SP) did they not? Ignoramus uhhh... eGremlin Okami is still completely playable without that layer of effects It also emulates those effects now. kizzmybutt There's a good reason for that I don't know which reason But there's a good one Methnerd Why is compiling emus on Windows such an unbelievable pain in the ass when cross compiling for windows under linux is a breeze? Garbage Can Lid Remember these threads? foolz.fireden.net/vg/thread/33837446/ foolz.fireden.net/vg/thread/34191815/ Boy_vs_Girl there has to be a reason to use linux. Nude_Bikergirl It's alright with MSYS2, since it has a package manager. Lunatick Compiling on windows is easy if you don't mind a list of extra things to compile first but each with their own dependencies and special compilation instructions. Crazy_Nice What's special about them? Fuzzy_Logic Shot in the dark but is there a way to emulate CUNT? Carnalpleasure you came to the right place. Supergrass Recommend me some phone PS1 emulator friendly games. Genre doesn't matter I'm open to anything as long as it's playable with the god awful touch screen controls. haveahappyday That purple dragon with the talking bear friend. Lunatick 3d platformers are horrible with the onscreen controls. viagrandad Windows is very different from other mainstream OSes, if you dev on Windows-only you're good but if you write a cross-platform project then Windows generally becomes a 2nd class citizen (or everything else does). eGremlin If I beat that game when I was 2 you can do it with a nig rigged iphone emulator. Skullbone every politician on the left being a Libertarian Republican, a few oddball Donald Trumps thrown in the mix, the 'right' being actually more left-leaning than the right, So left is right and right is left. Gotcha. Maybe they should switch terminology. hairygrape so is there a nice place for wii u wuds yet Snarelure I'm surprised to how cemu 1.6.0 runs well on a non overclocked phenom, mario 3d world runs quite well already, shit is crazy is the emulator made by people who worked at nintendo or what iluvmen Please let's not. /pol/ /v/ Nude_Bikergirl Is it possible to emulate the 3ds already? likme Why does endrift have a tumblr not about emulation? kizzmybutt Why would you want to? Raving_Cute get a super mario land 3d new 3ds xl for like$150 (because 10.7)
homebrew it
then pirate to your hearts content + emulators

Because it's expensive as fuck where I live.

easy game.
When did this meme start? It has a really good difficulty curve and by the time you're at world 8 it gets hard.
Reminds me of when reicast was just about to come out for windows and everyone was saying it's the savior of DC emulation. They've all been very quiet since it released.
Shit eh
Noice

Booteefool

Really Good Difficulty Curve for an NES game means easy. The average game on NES is balls to the wall hard as fuck

eGremlin

hurr durr I'm a retarded self-entitled end user that needs to complain about shit I don't understand

The PSP basically has a little PS1 inside it for playing PS1 games. Getting PPSSPP to run PS1 games would involve nothing short of writing a entire PS1 emulator. That would be a huge waste of effort and it probably wouldn't even be worth using.

Just use an actual PS1 emulator, faggot.

Doesn't stop the PCSX2 guys

PackManBrainlure

That's because the PCSX2 guys are morons

SniperWish

Pretty sure pops.prx is mostly emulation

BlogWobbles

PCSX2 is a reallly old project and we don't know how will that work.

Poker_Star

no it doesn't you idiot
it uses a sony made emulator called pops
why are you so dumb at least check your facts before you say stupid shit

CouchChiller

PCSX2 isn't good though :^)

a system that can barely emulate a NES at full speed emulates PS1 just find

yeah okay

Techpill

SniperGod

It runs NES full speed at 255mhz for me

Stupidasole

Apparently the PS2 used the PS1 chip it had living in it for some stuff though with PS2 games.

takes2long

It probably executes the game code natively, but emulates the graphics and other hardware.

farquit

Lord_Tryzalot

Is there any way to map each individual C-button in the Mupen core of RA so they're not tied to A and B? Who's stupid idea was that?

PackManBrainlure

i need to emulated breath of the wild before i off myself user

Emberfire

PLS BE RECOMMENDING FPSe ROMS AM VERY BORED WITH NO ACCESS TO BETTTER VIDEOGAME DEVICES ALREADY PLAYED TYPICAL STUFF LIKE FF TACTICS TO DEATH

PurpleCharger

Oh shit, then of course it can emulate PS1, what was I thinking
kys retard

I don't even know if that's true, but it is then just reread but change "an entire PS1 emulator" to "most of a PS1 emulator"

haveahappyday

How did I fuck up the links so bad? Should and then

well the emu was made by sony, i bet they have access to a ton of magical optimization stuff.
also pops isn't really that good anyway, runs some games perfect but some games like dq7 are troublesome.

How else am I supposed to play PS1 on my crummy android phone? What is the problem?

Thanks I guess

CouchChiller

Portalroms has some. Most of their Wii U games are unpacked for loadiine, but for what they do have it's nice because torrents.

Otherwise the only "good" source I've found is a thread on wiiuiso with scene releases, but it's slow as fuck.

Oh yeah, and pro tip: Use wudcompress.

You are like little baby

Dreamworx

What is the problem?
You didn't read the fucking wiki

What a tragedy, I didn't get the other ps1 emulator

Oh no
