>>185680868Mostly not much of anything.

>>185681485DS emulation is not that bad. Give some actual examples(with pictures), and don't just spout 'muh zeromus', 'muh sabotage', 'muh made up pokemon conspiracies'.
>>185685625>Give some actual examplesDeSmeMe till uses floating point arithmetic instead of fixed point..Then there's the fact that performance is so bad that you're better off running Drastic on an android emulator.. Can't wait for him to open source DS emulation, so that it can finally be saved..>'muh made up pokemon conspiracies'Aren't they still broken?
>>185686949>DeSmeMe till uses floating point arithmetic instead of fixed point..Which only causes some rendering issues in a few games. Most games can be fixed by enabling the 'txt hack'.>Then there's the fact that performance is so badWorks fine here with the JIT on and set to block size 12.>Aren't they still broken?No problems here.
Is it actually possible to play Persona 5 all the way through? I can get through the intro cutscene but then I hit what looks like a train scrolling by and it fucks up.
>>185688470there's some vid on jewtube just before the last boss, so unless it's imported save from ps3, you can probably finish it

So, melonDS is stuck because the dev needs to finish some work before coming back to the emulator... oh boy...
>>185665157>>My guess is that on real hardware no exception handler is called during the execution of the function 0x806195d0 but as we are using a hack for the cycle count it could explain why it's happening on the emulator.And? This is not a real N64. N64 emulators handle timing completely differently (and completely wrongly, but that's another issue). This change is not a "hack", per se.>>185668792>Besides, that flickering issue never even happened on PJ64.It did, actually. That's why SP Hack was disabled for Factor 5 titles in PJ64, Indiana Jones in particular. Plus dynamic block linking was disabled.
>>185710730https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HwZTyhmFgJo>so hard to find a video with settings
>>185686949>DeSmeMe till uses floating point arithmetic instead of fixed point.This is one of those things where it's not quite as accurate, depending on how the console was designed, but it generally doesn't cause that many problems.
>>185712205>This change is not a "hack", per se.You must have an interesting definition for hacks then :) .>This is not a real N64. N64 emulators handle timing completely differently (and completely wrongly, but that's another issue).They shouldn't make such "workarounds" global. Very bad idea imo. It should stay game-specific.>It did, actually. That's why SP Hack was disabled for Factor 5 titles in PJ64, Indiana Jones in particular.Well that would be for a totally different reason. I've never seen the flicker in PJ64 for Rogue Squadron and it has ABL & Fast SP enabled. I think the problem with Indiana Jones is that almost no one plays it, especially devs. That's why you'll see that no CPU recompiler works as it should for the game.
>>185714303>They shouldn't make such "workarounds" global. Very bad idea imo. It should stay game-specific.Why? It's a more accurate behavior that potentially fixes a wide range of games.>I've never seen the flicker in PJ64 for Rogue Squadron and it has ABL & Fast SP enabled.I have.
>>185714563>Why? It's a more accurate behavior that potentially fixes a wide range of games.Because it assumes that's always the case, when I highly doubt that's true on console. Unless you can show me documented proof that it MUST always switch back to 32bit mode beforehand.>I have.That's interesting because even logan was unable to reproduce the issue.. How do you reproduce it on PJ64?
>>185714971>That's interesting because even logan was unable to reproduce the issue.. How do you reproduce it on PJ64?You just play the game long enough. It's either slight geometry flickering or X-Wings flying into the ground. Take your pick.
>>185561859▶>The ePSXe interereter is actually worse than the dynarec,that almost certainly means they're using per-game hacks then. No good reason to have a dynarec that's faster than interpreter.>Not that I know of, but then the interpreter might not be perfect either since I recall people complaining about crashes on Suikoden with interpreter and there's probably other games that break in it..Alright. I'll have to find some sort of compatibility list and go from there. I'm considering porting some of mednafen's accurate code to PCSX. I just need to find out which stuff is necessary to implement for commercial games.>The default PCSXR plugin implements an option to the framelimiter that isn't actually based on VFPS or whatever you call it but actual rendered framesGood idea Tbh.>If it's done that way I'd assume there's a reasonI'm sure they are just trying to go for accuracy. Some games might really require very accurate timing. I just would prefer to optimize for common cases and I guess have accuracy as a fallback for games that really need it. I definitely wouldn't want to emulate slowdowns in most cases.

Rogue Squadron code has been made public.https://github.com/gonetz/GLideN64/commits/masterThey used Lemmy's work as a base, but they've gone much further. The code for rendering explosions and terrain is absurdly complex and large.
>>185719565>code for rendering explosions and terrain is absurdly complexonly complex for amateurs
>>185719925It's literally one of the most complex and longwinded bits of microcode programming ever done for the N64. Factor 5 were gods.
>>185719994>It's literally one of the most complex and longwinded bits of microcode programming ever done for the N64.Perhaps. But at the end of the day, microcode is just a group of assembly instructions. It's handwritten so the code should actually make more sense than looking at compiled code.If they thought Rogue Squadron was hard, good luck with Indian Jones / Naboo..
>>185720450I don't think it's necessarily "hard", but rather time consuming.
>>185720450shoo shoo whinno
>>185720975fair enough. it is indeed time consuming.

When has SP appeared in the emulation scene anyway? I've been following it since around 2006 but I only learned of his existence from this thread like two years ago
>>185724294Around 2010 when the PS jailbreak hit he and some other guy who I forgot the name of ported emulators to the PS3.
>>185724754Man I remember hacking my PS3 using that payload with a ipod video with rockbox installed.Good times.
>>185724294He was in the PS3 jailbreak scene first. Then he and Maister met up and made a frontend for bsnes, which spun into the Retroarch project.
>>185725292TI-84 Plus reporting in. Fun times indeed, too bad it never seemed to go as far as the PSP scene.

If Squarepusher wanted to impress people, instead of wasting time with a shitty tomb raider port Doom 3 would be far more impressive.https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Vulkan-Doom3-Available
>>185725389Themaister made first version of SSNES without notdaniel, after byuu made libsnes API.
>>185724754He started working on porting SSNES to PS3 on November 29, 2011https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/commit/0ece8b1319a617de6cfb3913696095c69dbaaf78
Can we play emulators on the Nintendo Switch yet?
has anyone had issues where their saves on pcsx2 get corrupted by Burnout 3 i couldnt find anything on it apart from old posts about memory card issues on an actual ps2
>>185732000themaister started working on ssnes in April 2010.
I'm looking through google play, and I see something called Androgens.anyone know how it works?how well it is to get games?I want to see if I can play shining force 2 on my phone
>>185727964It would be better to wait for it to be merged into RBDoom3BFG first.
Is cycle accuracy a meme? I honestly don't see any benefits of switching when all the games I have work just fine on Snes9X.
>>185736472Try playing Doom in 9x
>>185734961Wait, so how far behind is libretro's version of GLideN64? I went back to early July, and for some batty reason, SP was backporting (roughly) GLideN64's Acclaim ucode work to Glide64, which is a dumb idea because Glide64 runs the Turok games like shit.
>>185737351Download the latest GlideN64 master and see for yourself
>>185737351Also, last I checked libretro's version of Glide64 couldn't even do framebuffer effects anymore.
>>185737306Why would someone play DOOM on a SNES emulator when you could easily play any of the source ports that exist?
>>185737804I think you might be missing the point here
>>185737876I'm not, I'm trying to find reasons to use Higan/bsnes but I'm not finding any.
>>185737930>Is cycle accuracy a meme? I honestly don't see any benefits of switching when all the games I have work just fine >Try this game>No I'm trying to find reasons to use Higan
>>185738207What's your endgoal?
>>185738704Seems like they're trying to help you understand the point of cycle accuracy.
>>185686949>Aren't they still broken?Not overall, but HG/SS still freezes, from what I've heard.>>185727682If you one as a console, I see nothing wrong in calling it a console.
>>185741930>If you use oneFixed that for me.
>>185680257Is it currently possible for me to emulate pokemon sun or moon with citra and play the whole way through the game?
>>185737351>for some batty reason, SP was backporting (roughly) GLideN64's Acclaim ucode work to Glide64, which is a dumb idea because Glide64 runs the Turok games like shit.Obviously SP has a heart and wants emulation to be an enjoyable experience for users with low end hardware. How is he supposed to achieve that goal if he shouldn't bother improving Glide64?
>>185736472>Is cycle accuracy a meme?pretty much. I think it's mostly useful for just homebrew/rom hacking.Higan's code is poorly optimised, so it isn't ideal for playing commercial games.
>>185746064>spam inline all over the code base>20% speed increasewew lad
>>185744472The game freezes if you have 6 Pokémon in the battle against Cuckui, that aside yes, it's supposedly beatable.
>using desmume>load savestate I accidentally made right after the game saved>it overrides my current save>lost 15 hours of progressWhat did I do to deserve this.
>>185744643>low end hardwareRight, Win 98 users with Voodoo 3 are very important.
>>185752341You've used DeSmuME
Rpcs3 optimization when?!
>>185713957son, floating point causes serious problems with graphics.. floating point hackery is likely responsible for things like the infamous LLE triangles bug in z64gl, GLideN64, and Glide64..It's also likely responsible for some of the HLE exclusive bugs. There's absolutely no good reason to use floating point if you don't care about supporting older hardware..>>185752360>Right, Win 98 users with Voodoo 3 are very important.Who is important? You?
>>185753039Well yeah I guess you're right, I do deserve it. Well atleast now I have an excuse to try out something else, I'm honestly not feeling like continuing after losing all that progress.
>>185753374>There's absolutely no good reason to use floating pointIIRC from a Dolphin blog post where they dealt with the same issue, modern GPU don't support integer math, it has to be floating point. So hardware renderers have to deal with floating point one way or another. In software renderers it doesn't make sense to use FP at all if it's not needed because it's worse performance and less accuracy for no gain whatsoever.
>>185753504A shame the other emulators are too slow for now. MelonDS is already frozen
>>185752341>What did I do to deserve this.You've set up a hotkey for saving and loading savestates.
>>185754487Actually it's set up by default, the problem is that I accidentally pressed the savestate hotkey after saving and then 15 hours in I accidentally pressedn the load savestate hotkey.
>>185754867I is to save and P is to load.
>>185754867Are you handicapped or something?
>>185755373I actually am, yes.
>>185753683>modern GPU don't support integer math, it has to be floating point.To my knowledge, even OGL 3.x and D3D10 support integer.
>>185756750Yeah it's older GPUs that didn't support it, more modern ones do.
What NDS games should I play
>>185758767One that has bugs in desmume so you can join us in bitching about it.
>>185759868Nobody is bitching about bugs right now though.
>>185753140Try 5 years
>>185752341Most emulators do that.
>>185763459I think this post has been misuderstood, or more likely, I worded it in a way that it makes it seem that I think it's the emulator's fault, I don't think that, I'm just complaining about myself making that mistake, maybe "What did I do to deserve this" wasn't the correct phrase to use in this context, something like "Why am I so dumb" might have been better.
>>185736472The latest version of snes9x(1.54?) is accurate enough for basically every game.

>>185752341On Win7, you can restore files if you're lucky.
>>185764847Is it just that bad?
>>185765282well it depends on how recent the save is. I assumed you didn't play 15 hours straight, right?Anyway, you can right click files and click on previous versions. If you're lucky, you'll be able to restore to a recent date, assuming a 1-day old save is better than what you currently have.
>>185765921No luck, thanks for helping anyway.
>get told to install mGBA>apparently it's much more accurate than other gba emulators>load up a couple games>mGBA has no frame blending/dithering so everything looks like ass>checker boards and black spaces everywhere>doesn't include a shader to fix the problemWtf, how can this be touted as accurate when it can't even blend?
>>185768648I have no idea what's going on in that screenshot but if that's a fix to my problem please tell me
>>185768848It's retroarch, he's prolly using mgba core on it with a border + shader.
Is it just me, or is RetroArch a pain in the ass to try and navigate around? I find myself getting lost in all the options when all I want to do is turn off the bilinear filtering in Beetle-PSX. The XMB worked on the PS3 because it was simple, but here...not so much.
>>185773146Yeah I agree, XMB on PS3/PSP was simple, but with Retroarch there's so much options that it doesn't translate so well to XMB.
>>185769608You're right, this is much better.Retard.>>185768848It's the mGBA core on Retroarch, i'm using the gba handheld border shader>\retroarch folder \shaders\shaders_cg\handheld\console-border\gba-4x.cgp

>>185773748Here ProJewRed playing Super Mario on a real nes.What a hell Firebrand?
>>185773146Retroarch devs are all idiots. They decided to use a straight ripoff of the ps3 UI and didn't even bother adjusting it to accommodate the huge number of different options.
>>185773146>>185773358I wish RetroArch would just die in a fire. If you so much as question them on anything, they spit so much vitriol that borders on autism. Hell, they are even trying to rally ledditors to bug Amazon to remove all the clearly illegal emulator boxes and get RetroArch on the appstore. They are making emulation bad because they want everyone to conform to their shitty standards.
>>185774817>Hell, they are even trying to rally ledditors to bug Amazon to remove all the clearly illegal emulator boxesWhat's wrong with doing this?
>>185773632>it still doesn't have frame blendingis my only option vba-m if I want my games to actually look right?
>>185774817They want to remove competition before releasing own emulator boxes?

So I've been playing Wind Waker HD on cemu, since I wanted to replay the game but not on the Gamecube, and apparently the pictobox doesn't work properly since a function hasn't been implemented yet. Does it just cause the pictures to not render in the camera or just fail entirely? Am I barred from doing the Nintendo gallery sidequest?I'd play on gamecube but I want the quality of life changes.
>>185775958Nah, they'll just argue that they can't because it goes against their principals. For a team that tries to act all high and mighty, they sure are fucking childish.
>>185774170>Here ProJewRed playing Super Mario on a real nes.Whatever is outputting that image is a modded NES, and judging from the total cleanliness I'd even say it's using the HiDef NES boardKnow what RGB/YPbPr/HiDefNes modboard have in common? their default palette is the consumer or FECUX palette , the exact same from you emulators and they all force you to use a palette by design so you certainly cannot use that as a reference to how a real NES looks like.
>>185776279They don't render correctly, same as Breath of the Wild. No idea if it is like BOTW where NPC's can 'see' the images or not.
>>185776538I'd check with the gallery, but I can't tell if it's just Lenzo being a piece of shit and rejecting all but the utterly flawless pictures. I think he can see it, but there's no way for me to confirm it without playing through the entire game, getting the deluxe pictobox, and then trying to turn in photos and seeing if Carlov will accept them for sculpting.I completed the gallery in the past and would like to do it again, but it's so fucking autistic to turn in three pictures and play the song of passing six times. It's such a massive waste of time. Literally the reason to play the remake over the original.
>>185777198>>185776538I actually don't think he can see it. But it might be because he gives the same response if you fail his objectives.
>>185776298You missed few irc logs.
Does anyone know the best settings for PCSX2 to get as little CPU usage as possible.Should I just max out all the speed hacks or can I do something else like going lower than native res
Last I'd checked this game ran rather poorly on PCSX2. Anyone know if that still the case or has it improved?
DO you need a CEMU shadercache PER game?I read I shouldn't use the installation I use to play botw to play other games because I'd end with a bloated shadercache file. Is this true?I'm mid-game and only added like 50 more caches to a 8179 bin file I downloaded. (and it uses like 14gb ram already). So, each game makes its own file or what?
>>185784364>each game makes its own fileWell yeah. Why would it work any other way?
>>185784651I read you'd end with a single, bloated, 14k shadercache file.
>>185785093Well yeah, because zelda has lots of shaders. Has nothing to do with other games.
>>185764742MTVU. A new CPU.>>185764847>consistent full speed>PS2Yeah no.

>>185744643I think you're underestimating just how fucked the Turok series is on Glide64. Shadows = fucked. Mipmapped textures = fucked. Neither of those things is getting fixed anytime soon because it would require throwing away most of the existing codebase.

>>185773146>Is it just me, or is RetroArch a pain in the ass to try and navigate aroundIt's not just you. If you ignore all settings that have "input" in the name, there are over 200 things you can configure in your retroarch.cfg and most if not all of them are also available on the gui.I recommend you to use RGUI. It's not pretty but it's the best gui driver.

>>185789607im just dumping old emugen pictures, btw
>>185774278I don't think you know what you're talking about. All the settings are catagorized in the settings tab under submenus, I don't see how that isn't "adjusting it to accommodate the huge number of different options", they aren't all jumping at you at once. The Quick Menu has the commonly used settings in-game like shaders or control remaps.
>>185791716Every menu is exactly the sameThere's no variance for different options, they just didn't botherSo you get shit like the custom resolution options that require you to hold a button and watch it go up or down 1 number at a time
>>185792383didnt even bother reading wtf is is this one hopefuly not something bad
>>185792030No, that's not true either. There are settings that bring up the onscreen keyboard to allow text input, settings that are just toggles, settings that are enums with a few options, settings that are floating point or integers that scroll using reasonable intervals, settings that let you pick a file.The custom viewport shit is for fine tuning, and it only does that if you have integer scale disabled, while the actual fullscreen resolution option scrolls by multiples of 8.

>>185793485In the last 3-4 years I wrote at least 8 frontends, three of which had OpenGL core support and one had a Qt gui.You guys never got the chance to see them because I always gave up before releasing them.

>>185802147>What's wrong with KI?Killer Instincts sends sky/water drawing commands directly to the RDP without a display list, so a hack is needed to render these using a triangle conversion. (N64 didn't actually render triangles.) You can't fully HLE the graphics in KI and GE. There's a second issue where KI has some kind of blending regression that appeared after the refactor by the looks of it. It's completely normal for regressions to appear in emulators due to accuracy improvements but some people seem to think GLideN64 isn't subject to the same development constraints as other emulators. Gee, replace the entire combiner system, and 2 or 3 games start acting strangely. Oh, wow we need to go back to the old combiner that was literally one of the stupidest ideas in emulation history -- a massive file containing every possible combiner mode.

Can you think of any N64 games that actually have significant audio problems on modern mupen64plus?>what's wrong with it?It does things like force Factor 5 games to run in LLE mode. The whole thing is a clusterscrew because it was written -- by me -- with Glide64 in mind as a PLACEHOLDER. It wasn't intended for long term use. It was intended as a placeholder until GLideN64 matured enough to become PJ64's default plugin. And look how that turned out. PJ64 still uses Jabo's video as the default, so all the RDB compatibility entries are inaccurate, technically. I don't think people understand how bad Glide64 is. It is fundamentally incapable of selecting the correct texture mipmap. This breaks Turok. And Conker. And Perfect Dark. And WDC. And pretty much any other game that uses extensive mipmapping. This can't be fixed. That's what's frustrating. The RDB for PJ64 is never going to get any better because Zilmar is determined to keep using a plugin that cannot be fixed. He can refactor the shit out of it all he wants.>I'm glad PJ64 at least has more options, like allowing to disable FAT.Which breaks shit.

>>185823284>He somehow thinks Mupen64Minus is better, just because it's packaged with GLideN64 LOL.mupen64plus isn't packaged with GLideN64. Logan's fork is. For some reason, this community constantly forgets that nobody actually uses mainline mupen64plus. It's used as a base for other forks. Vanilla mupen64plus is shit. But when you pair it with a GUI and GLideN64, it forms a strikingly good N64 emulator. You strip all the fat out -- Rice and Glide64 and HLE RSP plugins and all that -- and just present the end user with the functional package. Project64U filled a similar role, but Project 64's problems run much deeper than mupen64plus'. Even Azimer's can't fix the audio, at least not in its current state. You either get broken game timing, or broken RNG. Which do you prefer? Some people don't give a shit, but I do. There's also a very serious self-mod memory issue.

https://www.reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/6t80g1/multisystem_emulator_higan_v104_released/dlixkhd/>If you don't want to work on interface design, though, why not just release them as Retroarch cores? That's the standard these days for emulators without their own GUI.
>reading the wiki>Citra can only load game images in decrypted 3DS format so far. A solution to load encrypted images is for the moment on the back burner and there's not much developer interest for it.>the devs of the only active 3ds emulator can't be assed to work on a feature that would make their emulator far more useful as it would cut out some of the flaming hoops one must jump through to use itI miss the days when there was more competition in developing emulators. at least at that time, people were more apt to try to cover gaps in their work. tools do exist to deal with it, but those are their own ball of hassle, and it's by no means useful. ultimately it just comes off as "haha we're the only show in town so play by our book, faggots!", which is immature and obnoxious.then again>citra devs still expect everyone to dump/decrypt their own gamesdudes, the hardware is still in circulation. if I had it I wouldn't need an emulator. and if it wasn't, that wouldn't be helpful to the matter of preservation. just like with PPSSPP's community, this mindset of "if you want to not play this on hardware, have it on hardware you could play it on first" is infuriatingly stupid. by all means detach yourself from the actual dumping of games and the sharing of them, but jesus fuck don't be retards about the fact that not everyone is going to be having every title ever so they can dump it themselves (and then "enjoy" inferior performance not playing on hardware anyway, in the 3ds' case).okay. I'm done obnoxiously and immaturely venting my spleen. carry on.
>>185870264They have to hack up shaders for higan because byuu for some reason thinks you can only output 1280x480 framebuffer for Mega Drive to support mid-frame resolution changes. Protip: You can emulate it just fine by using native framebuffer sizes, the emulator's scaling just won't be updated until the next frame, which is pretty much unnoticeable 99% of the time.

The system requirements for N64 emulation is simply unacceptable.

>>185962905IIRC there are certain Genesis games that force certain aspect ratios for some reason, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with region or what.

>>185976620What an utter fucking cretin.
So I finally managed to get FFIX running pretty smoothly, but being the forever dissatisfied princess I am, I've started to wonder if there might be a way of alleviating some of the "clash" between the super hi-res models and pixelated backgrounds. Rendering natively just looks like a garbled mess, but I'm wondering if maybe there's a way to still render at a high resolution, but then use some kind of filter/shader to...I guess downsample?(would that be the term?) back to native resolution. See webm related for a mockup of what I mean.
Should I bother emulating the PC-FX? Are there any good games for it?

>>185969503You bring up month old twitter posts to make a point.Why?
>>185977572What's wrong with the new PC port?
Convince me to use Higan over Snes9X
>>185983703You're missing the point...
>>185983710If you're not playing one of the following games, then there's no reason not to continue using snes9x.>A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol>BS-Zelda MottZilla Patch>Doom>Funaki Masakatsu Hybrid Wrestler – Tougi Denshou>Hayazashi Nidan Morita Shougi 2>Mecarobot Golf>Secret of Evermore (PAL versions)>Speedy Gonzales: Los Gatos Bandidos
>>185984008I don't even know any of those games but I do get some graphical artifacts on Top Gear 3000 on Snes9X that I don't get on Higan, nothing that bothers me though.
>>185962969>Game works perfectly>you just can't see the red dotThat's not perfect anon..>everything has glitchesN64 emulation in a nutshell..
>>185984179By the way, here's a pic of the issue.
>>185974054np2 has a ton of forks that have even been recently updated and a gui that's not complete shit
>>185982048I can't seem to get any shaders to work. Could it be because I'm using the Vulkan renderer? Although I tried switching to OGL and now I'm just getting a black screen...
So apparently someone was datamining Megaman Legacy Collection 2 and found Mednafen code in it, how does something like this end up happening? Doesn't Sony have their official PS1 emulator?
>>185985796No idea. I use RA 1.3.2 and Cg shaders. I haven't updated my RA in a while.
>>185986006link or it didnt happenas to why it keeps happening? these companies are not filled with super geniuses as you think they are, but hacks. companies dont want to pay big salaries anymore to random coding geniuses. easier to just go internet, steal code and call it a day.
>>185975849No, Haze is a moron.>>185976040Then it would have never happened if no one took the initiative to fork things to make it happen. These guys are fucking salty morons who should try doing a better job if they think that libretro is so shit.
>>185985796I just tried RA 1.6.4 and the new beettle core is full of bugs. LOL. I couldn't even run with 2x internal res. Just black screen, and slower than old versions. I'll keep old version, at least it works on my notebook.
>>185988560how can you find old versions of cores?
>>185988560nobody has amd gpus to test on. intel / nvidia has been tested and works fine.
We did it reddit!https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RetroArch
>>185988758i think hunterk tests on amd
>>185990032>RetroArch is the reference implementation of the libretro API.More like it's the only frontend allowed to exist. Some guy on #retroarch was talking about minir and told him to stop wasting his time and just use RetroArch.Also I don't think something so big should be the reference of anything.
>>185990735But minir is dead and incomplete, why would you use it outside of testing? If Alcaro was still actively working on it, you might have point.
>>185990940I used it as an example. Whenever somebody comes up with another frontend SP tells them to stop wasting their time and help him with RetroArch instead.
I'm creating texture pack for a Nintendo64 game, but for some time I see that this is not enough to make game look much better. Question: can I export the 3D models, enhance the geometry and then replace the original model?
>>185991145Well if they bug him about cores not working on that frontend, then yes he probably will. Considering he worked on RA for free for like 5 years straight I wouldn't be surprised that he wants people to work on RA instead of other frontends...
>>185991487Well he's no longer working for free that's for sure
Does any ps1 emulator natively support DS4?
>>185991584Only for a few months so far, a far cry from the years of completely unpaid time previously
>>185991145In addition, he will whimper that another frontend is making money from his GPL licensed code.
>>185994514That's a problem with the scene in general, everyone whimpers someone makes money from their GPL code or uses it in ways they don't approve.
>>185994957>everyone whimpers someone makes money from their GPL codethat's reasonable. Would you not mind someone else taking your free work and making $ from it?I'm pretty sure most people who would say they don't care are just talking nonsense.. The minute something happens to them personally, they change their tune...
>>185995176>>that's reasonable. Would you not mind someone else taking your free work and making $ from it?I would license it non-commercial if it were open source, so I'd have something to stand on. Then I'd ignore the freetards who whine about their freedom to sell my software being limited.
>>18588300319:42 <@Twinaphex> and I wouldn't find it surprising if you are simultaneously posting on 4ch about this too19:42 <@Twinaphex> I already see them posting about itFirst warning!!!!
>>185995449Kinda hard to do when all the emuscene uses GPL and to relicense to a non commercial license from GPL in a large project would mean everyone's approval, past and present.

Does anyone have a link to Mednafen 0.9.18 for windows or just old Mednafen releases? I am at my wits end. I am trying to play a translated anime titty game for the pc-fx on mednafen. The later versions of mednafen throw an error after I patch the translation, i need an older version of the program that supports cdrom.lec_eval 0. Please help me on my quest for big honking anime titties this is extremely important to me.
>>185997673http://down.emucr.com/v1/0IO3QZAGShould probably open up an issue report here, they might implement a hack to fix ithttps://github.com/libretro/beetle-pcfx-libretro

Is there anything like oman's archive for PS1?
>>185997942Sadly all of those links are dead. I managed to find a link to 0.9.17 in the forums:https://forum.fobby.net/index.php?t=msg&goto=2113&The translated game runs...but not terribly well
>>185829014>That's because you don't know what to look for.name a game then.. and what the issue is
>>186000041I don't think any other systems have anything like oman's.
If I wanna play N64 games that can be run through Dolphin's VC, should I go for it or simply go for an N64 emulator?
>>186004438Dolphin has Vulkan which frees some CPU if you're in need of that, I guess.
>>186004438Depends on the game, if anything. I see no point in playing a game like Super Smash Bros on Dolphin VC. The frame skipping is disgusting. No point in playing Super mario 64 either on VC because that's like one of the best emulated games on N64 emulators.Only game I can think of that might be worth playing on Dolpinh VC is Snap. Since it might require too much CPU to use Angrylion's for the game.. Maybe Mario Tennis and F-Zero too.
What was that SNES/Sega emulator again that was zoomed out?
>>185758767Henry Hatsworth. Do play hardmode though
>>185746064>Higan's code is poorly optimised, so it isn't ideal for playing commercial games.I can play all my commercial games fine on Higan, what are you talking about in the slightest sense
>>186006847>I can play all my commercial games fine on HiganAt a very high cost. You waste a lot of CPU cycles and will experience higher latency.Quite sad how some low quality emulators are put on a pedestal while other's are unfairly criticized.
>>186008926>You waste a lot of CPU cycles and will experience higher latency.
>>185871007>if I had it I wouldn't need an emulatorStopped reading there.
>>186012093Why the fuck would anyone use citra over a real 3ds?If it was actually good I'd understand, but in its current state it's barely usable.
>>185973615>Why does he deny DRC so hard?Because he's a scrub. He seems like the kind of person who dismisses things they were unsuccessful at implementing. You know, stuff like reducing input latency.>>186011217BSNES is known to have higher latency than other emulators like ZSNES.

Why Citra is open source if nobody can do anything without JayFoxRox word and don't want unofficial build?.
i'm in a library right now and there is a 250 lb woman sitting across from me. Her face and clothes are almost completely COVERED in gold spray paint.
>>186019708I wouldn't call it open source. People like JFR don't even do open development because of how much of fags they are. I hope he gets hit by a car and all his private commits are lost forever, desu.
>>186015748>All he does is refactoring useless stuff, copypaste hacks back from other projects and introduce stupid regressions because he can't be bothered testing his junior programer's ´contributions'...That sounds like a highly biased, hateful way to describe what he does. You know, he's made a quite a number of mistakes over the years but saying that only does "refactoring useless stuff" is to deny all the actual work he's done. In any case, it's unlikely you've done anything significant yourself to be judging the abilities of others.>No, wait, he also spend the rest of his jobless day haunting IRC and discussion boards to complain about others.And you spend your jobless day stalking him on IRC and posting on emugen to complain about him. Are you seriously suggesting you're in any position to cast stones at others when all you do is sit on an imageboard all day and shitpost about a developer?I think you need to stop posting and reflect on why you obsess over this guy so much. Surely it's not because it distracts you from your own real life issues. And there's also the fact that your autism has turned this place from "Emulation General" into "Squarepusher General". Just give it a rest already.

So I got a question. How does one go about extracting the ISOs out of PS4 games? Not for emulating purposes (sadly) but for modeling ripping purposes. I figured maybe someone here might have a slight idea on how to.

>>186030615I don't think there's even a way to dump PSN games off your console yet, but there might be a way to download the .pkg off the PSN and unpack them, if they kept the PS3 system they just encrypt executables and vital data so generally models and that kind of shit is up for grabs if you can handle the format they're in.
>>185997024probably another radius soon to be abandoned project

>>186026365how do I use it?

>>186031182How exactly do you 'dump' the contents? And downloading the pkg?
>>185977572I use a 2x internal resolution with hyllian-3d set at 2x. Edges get partially smoothed out and the 3d models go better with the prerendered backgrounds

I was downloading Dokapon Kingdom for wii and the download required you to do something with repairing the files then running another program. Why is that? I just grabbed the PS2 version instead but I'm curious because I've seen that required for other wii games.
>>186035663What's your problem? They look ok to me.
>>186035391Mm, interesting...sort of a cheating way to do it but the results seem decent.Still can't get shaders to work, though. To be honest I've kind of given up for the day, might resume tomorrow or something.
RA was a mistake
WHYYY, i fucking dumped the files that Citra asked and yet it crashes with an Mii Data problem, hell, even Mii Creator app crashes with the same problem, what should i do?
>>186038000abandon all hope
>>186037680Imagine dedicating your life to not creating an emulator, but to creating a gui for someone else's emulator. Kinda sad when you think about it.

>>186041029A GUI that gets so many autists riled up, must be doing something good.Drinking autist manly tears - priceless
Citra is suck. They are no wiling to improve it and do minor bugfixing.I can't play anything except 2d indie game. Slowest emulator ever.
>>186045730Now in English?
>>186048285Citra is fucking gay. Those pajeets are incapable of enhancing it and providing fixes for minuscule bugs that contribute to the larger whole.He lacks the ability to play any game from the 3DS library barring simple, two-dimensional video games from independent developers. A snail would have a fun time with Citra.
>>186048738works on my machine
Why do I get stuttering in top down games? It happens in Higan but not Retroarch, happened in MGBA until I turned on sync to video, and I just found it happens in PPSSPP with FFIV the complete collection.
>>186049435You're using it wrong.
>>186048738>He lacks the ability to play any game from the 3DS library barring simple, two-dimensional video games from independent developersI've finished some games with Citra already, none of them are even near to "simple" or "two-dimensional"
>>186036248by the way, how do I disable it?
>>186054595I do by removing the shader passes and applying the change.
Did they ever fix the crashing in Beetle PSX when you changed the resolution?
>>186058473Yeah, still not perfect since the graphics break (for SW, not OGL/vulkan)and don't reappear unless you make sure to make a savestate beforehand then change the resolution and reload that state.

For SNES guide sayshttp://emulation.gametechwiki.com/index.php/Higan#bsnes_versions"The Balanced version is recommended for modern PCs. Use the Accuracy profile only for extreme cases."in Windows versionhttps://github.com/sharknnth/bsnes-classic/releasesthere are two exes, one normal and one "-accuracy". I have a good PC (7600k, 1070) so should I use accuracy because speed isn't a problem?
>>186081991Yeah use the accuracy exe
>loveroms suddenly went offline
>>186081991>>186082038I don't think you should use the accurary exe unless you're already having problems running a game, you would be wasting resources for no reason.

>>186097630This is all terrible
>>185809017>Define "work". Body Harvest "works" in PJ64, but the audio is shit.bruh, it sounds just as awful in m64p.. I just tried logan's package..It's also annoying how it doesn't seem to remember ROM folder directory.I fail to see a reason to even use m64p. the gui for changing plugin settings is wack. The gui is counter intuitive too. Why is core settings inside of "plugin settings"? Makes no sense. I can't even disable frame limiter lol..I get that you don't like PJ64. It's not my default emulator of choice, but m64p is not ideal either..

>>186099993Thanks for the feedback, I addressed the 2 issues you mentioned.Body Harvest's audio actually does work quite good in m64p, but there are some GL errors occurring in GLideN64 the affect the performance, and thus the audio. I'm planning on looking into it over the next few days.

>dolphin now requires WIn7 users to install tracking updates>solely to reduce download sizehttps://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/5868And no, you can't install it separately since Windows 7 updates now come in monthly batches
Does anyone else remember the "shader window" in retroarch when you were in windowed mode? Was way easier to quickly fine tune shader settings in it than constantly pausing and going back to shader settings and quick settings.So what the fuck, why is it gone? literally its just fucking gone, what the FUCKis it in the stable build?
>>186120685It says how to get the standalone update right there on the page linked to in the pull.>To get the stand-alone package for this update, go to the Microsoft Update Catalog website.https://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx?q=KB4019990
>>186121123Yeah and if you try to install it it gives you an error message claiming you need to install previous updates first.
>>186099993I just tried Body Harvest on m64p and it sounds great.
>>186121064Stob using retroarch>>186121246The only prerequisite is SP1.
>>186120685You knew you were gonna have to move on from Win7 sooner or later, right? If it bothers you so fucking much use Linux, or have a Win10 PC exclusively for gaming and do your daily browsing and other shit on a separate computer running Linux.
>>186108130np man. Glad to see you fixed those 2 things. I have to admit, this is a pretty decent front end for m64p. I tend to nitpick sometimes, but i understand it's a WIP.Glad to hear that it's not just me, for the body harvest audio issue. Are you saying it sounds fine if you use dummy video?>>186121302I'll retest I guess and see if I can get it to work..
>>186121302It may depend on the PC, on my computer, GLideN64 generates a ton of GL errors, which are written to GLideN64.log, which causes my anti virus to go a bit crazy scanning that file, which slows down the emulator, which causes bad audio. But the audio emulation itself is solid.
>>186120685You can have a fully updated W7 without the spyware. Grab every non-telemetry update WU offers you except the rollups, then manually install the monthly 'security only' updates from the update catalog that have been coming out since last year. They're not cumulative, so you have to grab and install each month's one separately.
So Citra is getting big changes soon, will it finally be not shit?
>>186121302>>186121597>>186121724I think logan's GUI needs the following:Remember last used rom directory.Ability to configure controls using a proper GUI, like PJ64 does. The current system is clunky as eff.
>>186122093No, it will always be shit. It's the JPCSP of 3DS emulation.
>>186121064It got disabled because it caused a crash with threaded video enabled, not sure if that was ever fixed.https://github.com/libretro/RetroArch/commit/c283c1eaf429b34186c1f9a449b383d19f5cd6fb
>>186122259what the fuck thats gay
I don't understand why people get so emotional over PJ64 vs mupen64plus vs libretro. It's not about which emulator is "better", but rather which emulator has a package, official or otherwise, that "just werks" for the humble end users. PJ64 is by no means a bad emulator, but there's no roadmap to improvement. It's all fluff and promises. mupen64plus is a horribly managed project from a general perspective, but they're making real progress with some real goals. Someone reports that PJ64 has broken RNG, and nothing is done about it. Someone reports that mupen64plus has broken RNG, and an investigation is launched within a day or two to figure out the problem and devise a solution. PJ64 lacks this flexibility and sense of forward momentum, and PJ64 is the one getting Patreon money. Libretro is its own thing. Fans seem to have this massive superiority complex, but the emulator itself is conceptually fine, if a bit outdated.
>>186121545>stop using what i dont like
What do you guys think of closed source emulators?
>>186122941Not as good as open-source, but as long as it works best IDGAF
>>186122941I love them. I wish every emulator was closed source.
>>186121724What sort of errors?
>>186108130Thanks for 'Support opening ROM from commandline' so I can use it from Launchbox.
>>186123239I haven't looked into it yet, just a bunch of GL_INVALID_VALUE errors, but I haven't looked into the cause yet
>>186116948This is true, I beat all of FF6 on a Pentium under MS-DOS on ZSNES
>>186122941Closed source emulators are best because the guys just do their shit on their own without bothering anyone and zero drama is involved. Open source is a fucking pain in the ass because everyone involved is a fucking prima donna bitch who complains about fucking everything. "waah don't fork my code" "waah don't port my emulator to another platform" "waah don't compile the emulator yourself and then distribute the .exe" "waah yes I know all those things still comply with our license but still don't do them because muh implicit community politeness rules"
>>186122734>Someone reports that mupen64plus has broken RNG, and an investigation is launched within a day or two to figure out the problem and devise a solution.What solution has been devised?>>186121724I wonder if these errors are reducing performance in GLideN64.
>>186123881Well they are for sure in Body Harvest, this isn't every game, just Body Harvest, although I'm sure there are other games too
I am trying to get Rondo of Blood Running on my psp. I downloaded HuE .70 but cant seem to figure out where to put the game files to get it to recognize them. Any help?
>>186122941It depends on the emulator. Cemu is the only viable choice for WiiU at this time.Anyone who thinks closed source emulators are somehow inherently superior to open source ones are massive cucks, though.
>>186122941they make my dick hard
>>186122941If it's just a cover up for stolen code I do appreciate them
I'm getting broken background audio in resident evil 2 using dolphin. It wasn't always like this though, anyone else experience this?
>>186120685>too dumb to block windows spying on your network
>>186120685bruh, just download the dll
>>186122734>I don't understand why people get so emotional over PJ64 vs mupen64plus vs libretroTrue. In the end, they're all shit. It's like monkeys throwing poo at each other.Only one person can save N64 emulation
>>186129363Maybe, maybe not. Saturn's pretty complicated, but Recaptcha seems to be plowing through it with no problem. Is the N64 more or less complicated than the Saturn? I want to say N64 is. >Virtua Fighter had each CPU control each opponent.
>>186129719>Is the N64 more or less complicated than the Saturn? I want to say N64 is.Way more. Biggest issue with the Saturn was the lack of documentation since it does a lot of weird shit, but it's still nowhere near the crapfest that is N64 hardware.
>>186116749Being popular is not being better
>>186129363>True. In the end, they're all shit.If you think that, then the same applies to most if not all emulators. I can easily sit here and pick apart different flaws in various emulators.Memednafen doesn't even have a dynarec. There's no way recpatcha could ever achieve full speed N64 emulation , with her current coding methods.>>186129996>it's still nowhere near the crapfest that is N64 hardware.N64 isn't that complex. The problem is, most coders in this scene lack the intellect to write efficient code. Although it's true some got away with it because their systems require less cpu to emulate.
>>186131552>N64 isn't that complextop kek
>>186131552>N64 isn't that complex>most coders in this scene lack the intellect to write efficient codeWhy not show us how it's done?
>>186131850Saturn: double CPU, double GPU, sound CPU and few DSP.
>>186132178>simpler architecture>took 20 years and endless documentation to get this farYou missed those.
>>186132390>what is SSF
>>186132643Closed source, buggy, and never did anything to advance knowledge on the system.
>OK, I just mindlessly copied pasted this over from Citra so I think we should probably just go ahead and remove this altogether if it causes such regression>I just mindlessly copied pasted this over D-did SP just stand up to a mistake? Call me impressed.

>>186134036>classic example of terribly inefficient code.. Why copy 1 byte at a time? That's ridiculously slow...Because otherwise it would break Shiren the Wanderer 2.
Would you call it playable?
>>186134550No not really.It emulates pretty well though.
>>186134550Yes, lot's of users already finished the game.>>186134797You can play from start to finish, so I'm pretty sure you can call it playable.

>>186122734>I don't understand why people get so emotional over PJ64 vs mupen64plus vs libretro.The only problem is that people keep shilling the wrong emulators/plugins. People stoop so low as to make fake claims, in order to sway people into using something else. When people try something that they hear is the best, it can sometimes lead to disappointment when they run into issues not present on other emulators..>>185804510>Compatibility is higher than PJ64 now, unless you count 64DD titles.Check my screenshot...
>>186135937What's the deal with Shogi games being a bitch to emulate?
>>186135157Read again, and stop asking
>>186134154son, that's what 'if statements' are for. This is a loop that could run for hundreds of iterations if not more.I noticed that there's already a PR that partially improves the DMA performance. But of course they are hesitant to merge it because "muh clean code". Boggles my mind that people would refuse to add a few lines of code to improve performance by 1-2 %. This is exactly what is wrong with the scene. That's why system requires for many emulators are as high as they are. It's not just N64 emulation, because I see this in other projects too like Dolphin, BSNES, etc.
>>185874991In February, I'd have agreed with this comment entirely. However, since then, I'd have to argue against using RetroArch for N64 emulation. Its GLideN64/upstream mupen64plus-focused plugin hasn't received any updates and ParaLLEl's renderer hasn't matured, either. Their compatibility is a solid third place now, behind m64p and Project 64. I just made the switch from Project 64 to m64p and am really satisfied. No more hunting down the best plugins; no more re-mapping a controller every time I disconnect/reconnect it; no more fullscreen desktop resizing (all of which I dealt with while using PJ64). The time of m64p has come.
>>186139169>no more fullscreen desktop resizingi don't recall having that issue>The time of m64p has come.Not quite there yet Tbh senpai. It's practically useless for LLE.>no more re-mapping a controller every time I disconnect/reconnect itThat's just NRage.>No more hunting down the best pluginsIf you're just going to stick to 1 set of plugins, then there's no point in having a plugin spec..
>>186138812How often is that code even ran? Does it fucking matter?
>>186140186>How often is that code even ran?the guy's incomplete optimisation boosted the performance by 1-2%.>Does it fucking matter?For anyone who cares about performance, yea.. Then again, anyone who cares about performance shouldn't be using Mupen in the first place lol.
