Let's discuss how Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance is one of the hardest games to write an emulator for ever. Totally boned the PCSX2 devs and is buggy on Dolphin.

I wonder if Dolphin devs not getting the half screen bug could offer some clue to PCSX2 devs on how to fix it? But probably not since they're different consoles and the way the game works on PS2 may be very different from how it works on GCN.
>>
>>78898170
How many fps you are getting with Baldurs Gate on Dolphin and with what CPU/GPU/resolution ?
>>
>>78898170
GC/Wii dont use GCN.
>>
>>78898260
It totally varies wildly depending on how many enemies or other stuff is on the screen. It can be anywhere from 60 at the title screen to 9.

But then the VPS is basically always at 60 except when memory card saving or loading

CPU: i5 4440
GPU: Intel HD 4600 (ha ha very funny guys)
2x resolution.
>>
>>78898476
Oh and as the pics indicated, OGL is much better FPS-wise than D3D
>>
>>78898476
I think 24 the Game on PCSX2 may be even slower and its recognised as a bug.
>>
>>78898476
Back to the future, Tales of monkey Island and all off Telltele games are also super slow.
>>
>>78898476
Do you have any Intel specific graphical bugs in this game ?
>>
>>78897251
Wow, someone used my OC

>>78897740
>>78897960
But it has scanlines, you just can't notice them because i took the picture about 10 inches away from the screen
>>
>>78898939
Not that I know of but shadows look a bit wrong, like stencil-style shadows rather than more typical ones, but it could just be an "artistic choice". Also I'm using RachelB's Intelfix build so if there would be the typical colored dots error on D3D I'm not getting it due to that.
>>
>>78898764
>>78898880
Shadow Hearts 1 for PS2 is also another game that on HW mode is slow for some reason even on a PC that can run it fine in SW mode. I don't quite understand what causes these kinds of errors. Oh but for Shadow Hearts it's only in the field, not in battle or in FMVs.
>>
>>78899424
Fullscreen effects tends to do that sometimes like underwater in ape escape 2 or underwater in REC:VX

Do you guys think it's worth it to get an i7 over an i5 for PS2/GC/Wii emulation?
>>
>>78900637
No, emulators rely far, far more on single-threaded performance. All an i7 would do is get you hyperthreading which is next to useless.
>>
>>78900816

Could be mildly useful in software mode with PCSX2

Anyone have some kind of image guide of setting up dolphin for xenoblade?

I've read the thread and wiki. Applied the FPS patch as well as custom textures and it's fully stable. But I was wondering if there was anything else i could do to optimize the game.

Or to optimize dolphin in general for pure quality, only just found out about DSP LLE and feel stupid for not using it earlier.

Well if you're stupid like me you'll sit there at the "Press any button" screen spamming "A" which if you set the classic controller normally is the "back" button aka you can't get past the starting screen without pressing the ACTUAL "B" button.
Other than that embarrassing note, don't be surprised if you get fps when it's your first time doing some things. The first time you see that flashy move in combat? Yeah it might drop some frames. After that it'll basically remember it since you emulated once before and you'll have no problems. Uh... 4x native is pretty sweet, recommend it. Anti-Aliasing is a pretty big slow down unless your machine is gud. OGL is usually better
Other than that, not really much to say.
>>
>>78913943
ah, i'll try using 4x.
i tried using the NTSC version, but i thought that was the problem, so now i'm using a PAL version. should i just re-download the NTSC, or get the 30fps patch for pal?

Nestopia UE

News - September 1, 2014

1.46 is out.
The main highlight is that the unix/cross-platform build has been 98% rewritten.
The changes made in this release cycle should make everything much more
maintainable, and enable me or anyone else to add frontend features more easily.

Plans going forward:
The cross-platform release will be brought up to parity with the legacy Windows release.
The only thing left to do at this point is implementing the exotic input devices. That
will be a focus for the next release cycle.
The libretro release will continue to be a rolling release.
The legacy Windows release is still being maintained for the time being, but
it will be discontinued as soon as the new cross-platform build is capable of
replacing it.
The core is going to receive more focus in the future as well.

The DS was easy to make games for, and very cheap. It also sould 150+ million units. There's an INCREDIBLE amount of poorly made shovelware on it, much more than any console to date, much more so than on the Wii; this inflates the Library so much, as a result the DS has over 6000 games but half of those are simply garbage.

May I ask how does Fast Forward works on Retroarch? It seems to be tied with VSync. I can't get any core to go past 100fps.

Seems dumb since RA can't use analog input for navigation.
Looks cool though.
>>
>>78927793
No, you don't seem to understand.

I can't get any core to go past 100fps at all. Everything is locked at 100fps when I remove the frame limit. From Mednafen PSX, bSNES, to Nestopia. Nothing goes past 100fps. And if I can get 100fps on Mednafen PSX, there's no reason why Nestopia shouldn't go way past 100fps.

A while back I was messing with my settings and I forced Vsync on the GPU and suddenly, Fast Forward wouldn't work anymore on Retroarch. So it's definitely tied to VSync.

>>78927660
Everyone will switch back to rgui after the novelty factor wears off.
>>
>>78926468
Running it in OGL twice didn't change much, and it ran pretty poorly in D3D. The major issue is the sound, the slight frame drop isn't too jarring but the sound gets real annoying.

>>78926428
>>78926602
I never noticed my PC was running at these temps, probably because i've never had any issues with it. I'll probably just grab another fan same time I get an SSD.

How so? You just control the cursor going left right up and down. It'd make selecting cores much easier.
>>
>>78928097
i guess RA needs to callibrate to your system

1. run retroarch but don't load any game.
2. go to the video options menu
3. disable fullscreen
4. and enable the vsync option but disable hard gpu vsync.
5. enable fullscreen
6. let it run until the frame deviation (the %) gets to the lowest value and press x (or whatever you mapped the A button to) to save the frame rate.
7. toggle vsync off
8. restart retroarch
>>
>>78928531
I know, but it kinda reminds me of that Metro GUI for Windows 8.1
>>
>>78927945
I'd consider that to be in the acceptable range, though if I had the money I would try adding a case fan or two to see if that would bring those temps down some more.

>>78928097
Maybe there's a bug with how RA reports FPS when it gets really high? I have no idea, since I don't use fast forward at all.

>>78928232

>Does all that refactoring even provide any kind of benefit to the user
If you don't care for the developers in a FOSS project you end up with shit like the PCSX-R or FreeDO codebase. 1.1 has a lot of shit for the users, the menu/settings refactoring is probably the only thing SP is doing to help coders.
>or is it just SP going all NIH over maisters code?
It's not "muh nih", maister coded the menu stuff well but it was inflexible and only accounted for RGUI. Also, the settings code was, afaik, pretty much coupled with the menu driver code which led to setting-code duplication in lakka and in other projects.

Refactoring isn't about making things better for end users, at least not directly. It's about making things more maintainable for developers so they can more easily make changes down the line that will benefit end users.

>>78929643
Assuming you haven't overclocked and are using the stock heatsink fan, there is no reason for your temps to be that high unless you live in a place like Texas with no air-conditioning. So yeah, try reseating it with a new application of thermal compound. A pea sized glob in the center is all you need.

That was about the fucking Wii version, dumbass. The Wii hardly has any resources for extra features like that.
>>
>>78931336
Hard to say at this point. The tests on TASvideos were ran using now-older versions of both emulators. The version used to test Nestopia in particular was the ancient as fuck 1.40 "final" version released by the original dev before he disappeared. Lots of improvements have been made to it since then. puNES has also had improvements.

One thing puNES definitely does not have over Nestopia is libretro integration. So no shader support outside the couple it has baked-in, for starters. Compatibility-wise, it may have slightly better mapper support, but I don't know if anyone has tested thoroughly on that front.
>>
>>78931482
Odin Sphere, huh?
I've been wanting to check that one out since I played Dragon's crown.

>>78922051
I've played Okami and Kingdom Hearts, all on full 60fps, at 1.5x internal res, on a similar Laptop CPU, i3 380M, it was @2.53GHz though, but you do have a better GPU than what I did.

A lot of games will be very playable. You just need to try configurations and different builds depending on the game.

You might get some frame drops in more hectic fights. I had a core2duo that ran Odin Sphere at 44ish fps, so I don't see why you shouldn't be able to get 60.

Back in the day it was easier to sync things to the frequency the mains ran at, so some places got 50hz and others got 60hz.

Problem with both situations is that you have to alienate the older group to bring progress from the younger group.

PAL TVs support 60hz since the early 90ies, most game devs have simply been too lazy to include a 60hz mode.
>>
>>78933696
Well it's not just Hz, but also resolution. PAL is 576i compared to 480i, so they'd either have to decrease that, or update everything to cope with more bandwidth.

Let me tell you a story about a particular individual you may know. The story is already from quite a few years ago now. He liked to take walks out in the wooded park outside his apartment complex every once and awhile. You may wonder what this has to do with emulation and I'll get to that in a minute you little shits. Anyway, one day he stayed out a bit too late on one of these walks. He looked towards a light dancing off deeper in the park in a direction he never happened to walk before. He walked for only maybe five minutes or so, but by the time he reached the clearing with the light dancing about, he could no longer see the comforting lights of the buildings of his complex behind him through the trees.

In the clearing he saw an old man in a ragged coat. He immediately wanted to back off but the old man had already seen him and motioned for him to come closer. Why did he? He himself probably does not know. The old man began speaking to him and told the youth, "So, you've come. You are a special individual. I can give you the knowledge to make almost anything you desire come true, with only a small price." The youth responded, "Yeah right, old bum, and I can pull a rabbit out of my hat." Yet out of curiosity, the youth continued to listen. The old man told the youth, "Give me an example of something you deeply want, and you will see." The youth thought he would trip the old man up by speaking of something he would not know of, so being both a stanch lover of emulation and of the PS2 and aware of the languishing state of PS2 emulation at the time, he said, "Alright, you old fart, I want to be able to make the greatest PS2 emulator ever."
>>
>>78979382
To the youth's surprise, the old man knew what "PS2" stood for, and seemed to know what "emulation" was. He said, "Very well, I will give you the knowledge you need to make a great PlayStation 2 emulator, but there is one drawback. No matter how great the emulator becomes, it will always be incomplete, and neither you nor anyone else will be able to finish it. At first all will be well and people will love you for your work, but as time passes, they will grow to hate you, and curse your name, for offering them a taste of what they can never have."

By this point, the youth began to feel ideas flowing into him, he started to feel like he understood things he never would've dreamed of and so, arrogance gripping him, he said, "Yeah sure, old guy, I'll find a way. I'll keep trying until I do."

"Good," the old man said with a grin. He noted one more "little cost" to be paid for this ability, and picked up something the youth hadn't seen lying at his feet. It was a brand. The youth, still somewhat mesmerized by the situation merely said "Okay, sure, hurry up." Quickly the old man applied it to the youth's hand, but to the youth's surprise there was no pain or burning sensation that he would've expected. Then, his head swimming, the youth headed out of the clearing and back towards his apartment complex.

The next morning he woke up, not remembering the walk back, but immediately ideas flowed through his mind, and he sat down to write. "What should I call it?" He said to himself. "Oh yeah... PCSX2."

So if you ever stray during a walk and see a light floating off in the distance, don't hesitate to follow it. Whatever you desire can be yours, for only a small price."
>>
>>78979382
and all of emulation was ruined forever.

Not likely. I know for a fact that the NTSC version slows down on real hardware (Both U and J), so getting full NTSC all the time likely won't happen.
The PAL version supposedly fixes those slowdowns, but is only 25/50.
>>
>>78973542
It has nothing to do with the electron beam. The restricting factor is the bandwidth of the signal.
>>
>>78983436
There's no problem with slowdowns as long as they occur in original hardware as well.
>>
>>78988490
From an accuracy and preserving perspective. But that's irrelevant in context.
Point is that you can avoid the slowdown by going PAL, just like with real hardware but without requiring a separate PAL PS2. Consistent PAL is MUCH more preferable than NTSC with slowdowns for such a game, in my opinion.
>>
>>78989042

>DirectX 11 support is required. To get full speed and compatibility Mantle may be required in the future.
I can understand DX since it's the 3shitty. But why Mantle? Wouldn't that require more conversion, translation, or whatever? Sure, the low level performance might be a nice benefit, but it would have to be much more effort to program and maintain.
>>
>>79001556
VBA-M developers quit I think. I could have used epsxe+Bladesoft at low settings for same effect as mednafen years ago.
>>
>>79001607
Its probably outdated statement. Directx12 will be mast likely better than Mantle.

I'm sorry you don't share my sense of humor, but you don't have to insult me because of it.
Are you literally twelve?

I'm saying that your sense of humour is that of an underage kid.

"LOL CHECKY FAGOT XDDD"

Don't act like this when you get called on it, especially since this board is supposed to be 18+. :^)

This is you.
Stop it.

If something doesn't interest you, just ignore it. You can hide posts on 4chan, you know? Why start and altercation based entirely around the fact that someone has a different sense of humor? THAT is the mindset of a 12 year old.

See, I can greentext too. You/him should man up and just take the insult and not reply instead of escalating this further.

By the way, why isn't vgba listed in the android gba emulators section?

Because it's payware bullshit from the same dude who has specialized in payware bullshit since the 90's, most likely.

I had suspected it was because of the man behind it, especially because he put in AP protections which fuck even legit endusers.

But then couldn't they say "you should man up and hide the post and not reply instead of escalating things in the first place"?
Your argument is dredged in hypocrisy and the "I can do no wrong" state of mind.

I just want to submit a Dolphin bug report. Is there any way around this without activating cookies?
Any idea why Google suddenly made it a requirement?
>>
>>79004107
And? Zilmar also invented the plugin system used on most N64 emulators. Doesn't erase the fact that he single-handedly stunted the growth of the N64 dev scene by closing off both the PJ64 source AND binaries off to anyone who didn't shell out 20 shekels.

Being an innovator does not exonerate you from blatant Judaism.
>>
>>79004637
Do it on github, maybe. Maybe not since I think that requires an account.
For tracking purposes, obviously.
>>
>>79004954
I dont think they accept Dolphin bug reports on Github it must be on googlecode.
>>
>>79004651
Yes Zilmar is greedy faggot who stunted N64 development also by bundling malware with PJ64.

So anyone knows where I can download compiled builds from Libretro buildbot ?

Just a heads up, new Intel graphics drivers have been released for Windows. There's been at least one report that they fix the Dolphin Intel D3D colored dots bug, so the workaround may no longer be needed.
>>
So the Dolphin Intel bug has been fixed... by a new Intel driver release. No hack had to be added.

Does that mean neobrain was right to push back?
>>
>>79008218
Based Intel
not-so-based neobrain
>>
>>79008228
No. It means everyone has the right to concede, as the situation has been fixed appropriately.
>>
>>79008228
No.
If the hack was implemented, users would have been happy and there would be no downside apart from two lines of code.
Once the fix was produced by intel, neobrain could have removed the two lines and called it a day.

He thinks only about himself, and not about the project.

Is there something actually blocking you from using official drivers? Hell, how on earth did you run when you first reinstalled windows?
>>
>>79009352
Ah thanks, much better now

>how on earth did you run when you first reinstalled windows?

>Reinstalled Windows

u wut m8
>>
>>79009632
If you're using OEM shit for hardware, then clearly you're not actually using the OEM OS that came with it. That would be a deadly security risk and a very likely performance hit.
>>
>>79009718
Is it possible to have an OEM version of Windoze? I don't think so. It's just the drivers that are OEM
>>
>>79009820
It's possible to have an OEM install, with OEM drivers, bloatware, and other such nonsense. The question is why anyone would ever start with that instead of a fresh one.
>>
>>79009909
Because it's easier
>>
>>79009909
I imagine because lol prebuilt.
This isn't /g/. I'm sure a few people here haven't ever installed Windows, or even know where to start.
>>
>>79009718
>That would be a deadly security risk
So all prebuilts are security risks? Doesn't that mean basically 90% of PCs are unsecure?
>>
>>79010235
Yes?
>>
>>79010045 >>79010048
I don't comprehend. You seriously just pop in a disk and run it. That's easier than uninstalling everything in most cases.
>>79010235
Potentially yes. And definitely yes.
>>
>>79010293
>>79010318
But why? You get the same updates any other ver of Windows does.
>>
>>79010318
A lot of people do.
I personally know my way around a computer fairly well, but I understand that's not always the case.

Doesn't mean that they shouldn't learn.
>>
>>79010318
Prebuilts don't come with OSes on disks anymore. You go with the one they have installed or you have to pay again
>>
>>79010376
That's actually not true.
Very often, updates may contain OEM data for your components, depending on the manufacturer and component in question, of course.

Even if it was true, why would that change anything? Windows is far from the most secure OS, especially for anyone who's not technologically inclined.
>>
>>79010376
Along with whatever software the maker/whatever decided to install.
>>79010445
Using the shitty OEM disks is just as bad, and comes out to the same shitty startoff as just leaving default.
>Buying Windows
>>
>>79010508
So you use a pirated Windows and say OEMs are unsecure? Are you retarded? How many trojans do you think they included in your pirated Windows?
>>
>>79010572
No. Are you retarded? You use an official Windows disk, hash checked and burned. Then you activate it with whatever means you chose.
>>
>>79010621
Where do they just give away official Windows disks for free anon?
>>
>>79010572
You can check to see if a Windows iso is factory fresh fairly easily. It's impossible to make an undetectable change to the image.
This goes for any software.
>>
>>79010707
Internet. Like I said, hash checked and burned.
>>
>>79010707
You're arguing about something you obviously know nothing about.
Please stop. For your sake.
>>
>>79010743
How do you know what the "real" hash is?
>>
>>79010819
Easy, someone checked it against a retail disc.
It's very well documented, much like anything on the internet.
>>
>>79010816
No, I wanna know the secret emugen knowledge of how these people are avoiding Trojan!Windows with hash checks. Where do they find out what the real disk's hash is? Is that site trustworthy?
>>
>>79010819
Step one, google them. Step two, click on Microsoft's site. Step 3, acquire hashes.
They have to provide support for that due to ISO?USB installs.
>>
>>79010949
Oh boy you trixed Microsoft into confirming your ver of Windows isn't trojan filled. U are so smat
