How do I emulate smoke black controllers?

>What do you mean by transcode? I'm relatively new at emulating.
You record to one format and then edit/convert that to the webm you want using other video tools.
>>
>>121422443
...so did you link to the wrong post?
>>
Is there something I'm missing when it comes to emulating pic related?

There was that PCSX2 update back in June or so that "fixed" it, and while it's true that I can at least run it past the developer logos now there is still a hell of a lot to be desired. I can either do hardware mode and get 4fps but with only half of the screen rendering, or software mode with 3fps. Is there an option I'm missing or some trick I could try to pull, or am I doomed to not play until I commandeer NASA's computers?

PS3 emulation is stagnating. Maybe it was always a pipe dream. The latest vids are just "look we can play a streamed video from a game!". No complex 3D games at all.

I really want to play Demon's Souls past 720p. Or at least have some scaling options rather than what it currently does. Right now it sets my display to 720p, with that god awful bilinear upscaling.

since 4K CRT shaders still don't look accurate, is it possible we need 6K or 8K for them?

As such, are CRT shaders a pipe dream that by the time we get displays that can pull them off right, no one will care about playing such old games?

RA 1.2.2 Wii is unbelievably broken. Gamecube controller button input is randomized upon core switch, Gamecube controller buttons aren't manually remappable, display resolution always stretches to 16:9 when restarted, turbo buttons are always enabled on start and needs to be disabled manually in the settings.

I can usually deal with the bugs or wait them out but right now it's pretty much unusable which sucks when the little I've been able to play of the new mgba core has been nothing short of amazing.

Not really FUD. I just like talking about how bad everything is. It's my hobby. N64 emulation hasn't progressed in years except for paying gonetz to make a bunch of hacks, mednafen will never have HD, PS2 emulation is buggy as hell, Dolphin takes a supercomputer to run, RA is broken on most platforms, etc.
>>
>>121471218
Use a nightly version to see if it's better.
>>
>>121475929
PSX HD is pointless until someone corrects the math behind the 3D.
Rumors were abound of a plugin, of course closed source, that did just that but that version never saw light of day as far as I know. It was also a software renderer and probably slow as shit.

Not even s-video is enough to blur the dithering. I just tried Socket and it's full of vertical lines everywhere. The only way to blur everything is with shitty the composite filter
>>
>>121586486
Because that's how dithering works. Even on a real CRT, for instance, if you use any input that's higher quality than RF/Composite for Sonic, you instantly lose the transparent water.

hi /emug/
I'm trying to run retroarch. I had it set up on my system awhile ago but now when I go to run I get this message:

./retroarch: error while loading shared libraries: libpython3.4m.so.1.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

When I check the python package on my computer I see:

local/python 3.5.0-2

Shouldn't this work? I thought so libs on Linux had versioning support so I could update libs but dependent applications would still work
>>
>>121598832

Ideally Windows, Dreamcast or PC. But there's no cores for those.

N64 is super compressed from the PS1 version. PS1 is the original.

They are done by an automated buildbot, it's zero effort since everything's set up already.

>Doesn't benefit anybody other than Retroshit

Everyone benefits from open source code, since you can easily look up how they did things to improve your own emulator, or make changes to it to suit your own uses. Emulation is a group effort, no one makes an emulator 100% on their own, and hoarding your code for protectionist reasons is simply being selfish.

And nice job accusing RA of stealing code again for the umpteenth time, why don't you go after all the other people that reuse code like Mednafen or Bizhawk as well? Oh wait, you just don't like SP so different standards apply.
>>
>>121645676
I'm using the bios pack from the wiki, and I'd be fine if mednafen didn't run at full speed, if I could get anything to run at all.

I'm pretty sure I've got the directories set correctly, as I'm pointing to where my bios is, I've even tried putting the bios in the same folder as the games as when you first go into the directory menu is says <content dir> by default for the option there.

These are not dependent on being closed source and payware. This is just a matter of motivation and knowledge. Requiring money for motivation kind of signals that you might be into emulation programming for the wrong reasons. There are lots of other, more ethical ways to make money off of programming.

Yes, but none of them have to do with writing emulators.

Why do you think open source is a ticket to free labour? For the most part open source doesn't really come into play until after the project has slowed down.

It's the other way around friendo.
>>
>>121649419
>>Open-source didn't do shit for projects like mGBA and Play! because nobody actually contributes.

Your logic has so many holes in it that it's not even funny. Saying that open source is useless is stupid because those two emulators don't get much outside interest because they are emulating something that someone else has already emulated well enough for a long time. They're already catering to a niche since there's already an established emulator for those systems.

>>Hell, even the libretro people don't give anything back and refuse to work with upstream projects like Gambatte and PPSSPP.

You know, you don't have to have a shallow fork and do regular pull requests to "give anything back". The fact libretro puts everything out there on an open repo should be good enough since anyone interested can just pick out the changes they want. Most of the time, these other projects didn't want libretro in the first place and didn't want to work with them so a separate repo was necessary.

> because he fails to push it in the right direction

What is the 'right direction' to be pushing it in then?

> 2Pac wannabe attitude pisses off potential contributors

That usually only happens when a 'potential contributor' is also giving an attitude to him. Most of the time he's not hostile on his own channel and repos.

I'm not on that open-source-everything bandwagon, but you have to admit its potential benefits. If nobody open sourced anything in emulation, we wouldn't be where we're at today. RA is not the only group of people who would benefit from open source, although they do tend to rely heavily on the work of others.

I do think that open source is pointless when nobody actually contributes, hence why I do not open source everything.

Umm, I think you can look at that log and see that today's 'programmer' (MoochMcGee the 17 year old kid) talks language that is worse than even ebonics.

Honestly, this is not a right description of SP. There is no '2Pac wannabe attitude', you are latching onto one or two posts maybe and acting like that is how he is in general. It would be like saying Jack Nicholson acts like The Joker when he is out in public.

The only emulators who really receive contributions from the outside world are PPSSPP and Dolphin.
There's still no good open-source emulator for the Sega Saturn for example and yet nobody bothers with improving Yabause.

/emugen/ is kind of hyper focused on libretro and RetroArch over anything else, partly because Squarepusher was known to come here and post, unlike most other devs who ignore emugen, and because most of the early adopters for RetroArch were on /emugen/ and some of the major contributors came from /emugen/ as well.

/emugen/ tends to not pay much attention to drama in other emulation circles such as MAME unless it involves RetroArch in some way, even though there's often drama in those places regardless.

Even projects that do have full libretro integration have a "shallow fork" like mGBA. Just stick with upstream.

SP offered patches that got it working on PS3 and MacOSX PowerPC. What did endrift do? Throw it right back in his face.

Then they went separate ways.

Honestly, the only thing stopping any collaboration is the 'autism' emanating from most of you 'emudevs'. Fix the autism and things can get along fairly fine. Start collaborating with people, don't think of them as 'lower' than you, and don't just believe whatever byuu tells you about a certain guy and then find it weird that when you come in with all sorts of assumptions about how a guy is when that person has done nothing wrong to you to warrant that kind of suspicion in the first place, that things might not get off to a flying start.

Oh, he can do whatever he want. I still consider it the wrong way and I know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

He's already got way too much stuff to take care off as it is, if he wants to push himself further he'll sooner or later pull a Rachel and take RetroArch with him.
>>
>>121653339
>>Do one thing and do it right, don't try RA into some multimedia bullshittery that will never go anywhere.

It does one thing and does it right: it runs libretro cores.

What a libretro core is or does is irrelevant, as long as it implements the API correctly. That's why libretro is considered to be an "agnostic API". I agree with him that there should be more non-emulator libretro cores, like source-ports and indie games.. Other more unorthodox cores like media players can work if they fit within the scope of a libretro core and benefit from the features that RA provides, but going too far outside of the general usecase of libretro isn't going to benefit things much, so I believe libretro cores should stay within the interactive multimedia scope..

Why? Retroarch has a bunch of features like AV sync, netplay, achievements and cheats. Your contributions to the project also positively influence the Retroarch project on over 20 platforms.

You can skin it to look like whatever you want or even write a simple launcher since you can simply feed it arguments through the command line interface.

What team libretro need to do is to document the code base so that programmers who have more or less skill can still contribute.

That's just people not getting the fact that libretro is not tightly coupled with RetroArch. The cores are entirely separate entities from RetroArch and are not a true part of its code. The only time when a core is statically linked into RetroArch is on consoles where dynamic linking is not possible.

People have just been conditioned to think of any kind of "multi-system emulator" as being this big monolithic blob of emulators like Mednafen or OpenEmu, but that's not the case with RetroArch. The libretro core builds they provide can be used by anything that implements libretro in some way, like Phoenix or even Anarchy Arcade There just aren't that many alternative frontends yet because this idea is still fairly new since it's only been around a just a few years, but as time goes on, more of them will appear.

RetroArch being the most complete libretro frontend doesn't make anything tightly coupled to it. As other libretro frontends mature, people may start using them more instead.

I'm waiting for the phoenix "open-emu like" front-end to be ready for release.

But another potential alternative being developed in the Gnome application "Games 3.18" which scans and lists your ROMs and allows you to play your games through a libretro cores/plugins. It needs A LOT of work though.

My post was referring to several devs, not just SP. The fact that he said "Windows is low priority" only proves my point. Any group that disregards Windows is alienating themselves. If he wants more helpers, then he should help others out more.

Gonetz is another example. He alienated himself by making a plugin that requires OGL 4.x. If he reduced the requirements, GlideN64 would have more contributors. His loss!

I understand that. But they should be able to realise the impact that their decisions have. If they make Windows low priority, then they have to accept that they will have less support from Windows fans. Same would be true for people who disregard Linux. The only difference is popularity.

I don't know if any are, but I'm going to be buying a fancy PC soon (yes, prebuilt, I can't be assed to build it myself) and since all the ones I can find that I can afford that aren't toasters run Windows 8.1, I'm afraid the emulators I run on my current Windows 7 PC won't work on it. Aren't there issues with Dolphin on Windows 8?

As if that's difficult

Also why 8.1 instead of 10?

You should reconsider. Specially if you're considering playing games on Dolphin/PCSX2.

Are you on drugs? 8.1 has no botnet and allows blocking updates

I'm paranoid and some shit on /g/ has been making me nervous about 10, really some stuff about 8.1 too but 7 is likely not an option

Probably if he's going to be dropping 500+ bucks for a PC he probably doesn't want to also have to spend 10 hours putting it together too. I mean holy shit how much trouble do these PCs expect you to go through?

>8.1 has no botnet
It's a system update
And you can disable it on 10

> allows blocking updates
You can block driver updates, which are the most important, but why would you want an OS without updates though? Do they not only offer more security, they fix bugs too. You can also disable windows update entirely.

They get paranoid about everything. If you really want to listen to /g/ then start using Linux

Also, perhaps surprisingly the logo is not a bitmap but just a bunch of red polygons.

As I work on the PSX I discover more and more assets that I assumed were textures but end up being geometry. Probably because of the many limitations in the GPU texture handling.

I'm not sure I understand the question. What else would they be?

The triangle is the simplest planar primitive, it's just three points. See this for more details:

https://gamedev.stackexchange.com/questions/66312/quads-vs-triangles

The PSX GPU supports quad drawing command but renders them as two triangles so it's just a way to save a bit of memory while buffering the commands. Older versions of OpenGL also supported quad (probably for the same reason?) but it's deprecated now, we only have points, lines and triangles left. I don't know if DirectX is different but I suspect it's the same thing.

>>121733985
Oh so you're saying you can disable updates. I guess maybe you can but you can't turn off the botnet, so it's worthless that you can stop updates

It will never be that simple. One would have to be a fool to think MS would let you just remove the services that track you. They want that data and they're not going to let you disable it.

Nope, and the complete guide is:
https://rbt.asia/g/thread/S49341970#p49343158

But even then you're still not clear as hosts is whitelisted, as seen here: >>121733704. There's no way to completely disable all tracking on W10, you have to block things externally.

>>121735393

>>121735418

Meh. They don't care about the 0.1% of users who will bother doing "power user" stuff to disable some of their services. If you know how to do that you're also probably able to block it on the router or something else.

The vast majority of Windows users probably won't bother changing the defaults at all.

>>121733489
Those are just minor annoyances. None of those things would make the whole thing be classified as broken.

No.

No other program I use does this and I refuse to give RetroArch special treatment just because the developers can't decide on sane defaults.

Also, not being able to map out the controls and crashing are not "just minor annoyances"

You must not use many programs then.

This is just pure entitlement complex. If you don't like their defaults you can modify them yourself.

>Also, not being able to map out the controls and crashing are not "just minor annoyances"

You can map your controls just fine and the handful of keys that don't map correctly from the menu can just be done from the config file instead. Other than Mednafen cores lacking a BIOS, it usually doesn't crash on an error unless the core stopped abnormally.

You're making it sound much worse than it actually is.

Don't use complex multi-pass shaders that take a long time to compile.

It takes >1 second to start up if you don't use shaders.
>>
>>121737270

I don't mind RetroArch but refusing the acknowledge the weird defaults is just silly.

I don't mind programs doing things their own way when there's a decent reason for it. RA is just quirky for the sake of being quirky sometimes.

I'm not saying it's bad but refusing to acknowledge the weak points of the software is ridiculous. You can say "I don't care enough to fix it" or "I like it that way myself" but saying "what you're saying makes no sense and you're entitled" is not going anywhere.

Because the OS is proprietary and Microsoft can do anything as long as it's legal

For example they can't call the authorities and tell them you're using pirated software or have CP

On Leenux maybe, the Windows version always takes forever to start up
