There are 3 main things you need in order to emulate decently PS2
CPU with instruction setSS2 (If you have SSS3 or SS4.1 even better)
CPU Single-threaded performance
Graphics card with dx9 and pixel shader 2.0 support (dx10 or dx11 is even better)

According to videocardbenchmark.com you dont have much single-threaded performance. you might be able to run some games but at pretty low framerates. 2D games will be OK tho. Maybe switch to PSX emulation if there are similar games than what you want IE Crash Bandicoot, Gran Turismo

It doesn't matter how powerful your shit is, it will stutter on android. The fucking launcher on the Nvidia Shield will regularly hang like a motherfucker. It is a problem inherent to android and it is literally unfixable.

>a commitment to staying open and empowering users
RMS is somewhere really upset because you posted that. Sure android is open source, but it is not at all for altruistic reasons, there's probably been like two fucking devices in the history of android with open drivers, and the vast majority of software that people actually use for it is proprietary as you can get.

Android hates your freedoms.

I would never even want a 3DS for emulation because it's so underpowered, but it's still the best thing out there. The point being that everything out there is fucking shit.

>> No.2861912

As far as empowering users: one thing Android has done recently is allow users to choose which permissions to give or deny to apps as they install. It's really encouraging to me that a major OS has decided to do this. I don't really expect the reasons to be "altruistic"; of course this is a business endeavor, but their business strategy involves passing more control to manufacturers and end users than you usually see, and I hope that pays off for them. This is in stark contrast to Microsoft and especially to Apple.

As for unpreventable stuttering: I assume you're referring to garbage collect. It is possible for developers to pay enough attention to memory management to avoid triggering the collector in their apps. Maybe the emulators I used were programmed in this way? I definitely would have noticed if an action game stuttered at a crucial moment, or if the sound stuttered; neither of these occurred, even on the slower machine I used to use. Come to think of it, memory management seems like it would be pretty simple to program for an emulator, since even N64s only have four megabytes of it.

>> No.2861995

Most emulators on Android attempt to mitigate the stuttering and audio skips with either frameskip or with lots of audio buffering, or both.

It's one of the reasons RetroArch does not fare as well on Android as it does on most other devices. It does not implement frameskip (in fact, its developers are ideologically against the very concept of relying on it), so when the emulation stalls, you sure as hell notice it. On other platforms, you can get away with 16 to 32ms of audio latency, but Android cannot seem to manage less than 64, and often you have to go much higher than that depending on the hardware.

>> No.2862038

Interesting! That would explain why I've always had to turn on a bit of audio latency for SNES and N64 on Android to avoid sound stuttering - not extreme, but definitely noticeable if you've played the same games on native hardware. I can confirm that the easier systems to emulate, like GBA, don't have this issue, which is nice.

>> No.2862308

That's funny. Nothing stutters on my android phone or tablet when I emulate. That being said I always prefer Linux whenever possible.

>> No.2862453

How do I turn off bilinear filtering in MAME without having the UI version? It's ugly as shit, I can't use the 64 version of UI, the 32 ones are too old to run shit right. So I'm fucking stumped

GC probably, since it uses a controller. The Wii version requires a wiimote+nunchuk which are awkward to emulate unless you're actually using a wiimote+nunchuk.

>> No.2863050 [DELETED] 

RetroArch accepted donation, just not in monetary form. It was more like "we'll port it to a lucrative platform if you gift us that platform". A bunch of people were then sending consoles and tablets that would end up "breaking" or "going missing". It happened a number of times before they toned the donation thing down completely. Even if there was some foul play it's pretty small time. A few used 360s, PS3s and a handful of high end tablets isn't much in the grand scheme of things.

SP used to be active here and everywhere else and would drive almost everyone crazy. Some people would bait him and he'd swallow it every single time. A bunch of times he'd leave briefly swearing to never return, but after a while he'd be back. The last time he left for good coincided with the appearance of the batshit crazy everyone-is-a-retroarch-shill troll appeared.

I've been around their forum since 2012 (the old one at forum.themaister.net) and I never saw any of the stuff you're talking about. Only a few people actually donated hardware, with most of the devices he develops for came out of his own pocket. He's also followed through and ported RA to those platforms. The only thing I know of that broke was a hacked Xbox 360 someone had set up for him, but that's hardly surprising given the failure rate of Xbox 360s. Hardware donations are still accepted but VAT taxes make it actually cost money for him to recieve it if it's shipped across borders.

These infos are outdated imho...
According to them, my Single Core Athlon 64 4000+ 2GB RAM 9800GT 512MB should be able to run some games, but it can't, no matter how I configure it, it can't even properly start the BIOS at full speed, and any game i tried runs a 2-3 fps even from boot.
Same logic applies for another PC i have which has the same specs except for the CPU being Athlon 64 X2 4400+ and the 9800GT being the 1GB model, it runs better, but still there's no game that goes beyond a slow as fuck 12-15 fps.
Of course it runs no problems on my main rig since it's anormal current gen parts desktop, but according tho those requirements my other 2 old PCs should run some games, but they don't.

>> No.2864216

On a Athlon clocked to 2.2ghz, I could barely play some 2d games and maybe Godhand with 20 fps with all hacks/VU steal etc. Most games have different needs, so I don`t think they are "minimum specs" in general for that emu. If you have 2-3 fps in bios, something is off btw.

So apparently the 2.x version of Project 64 can emulate hybrid heaven with no audio issues. Despite disabling the frame limit and resynching the game on the audio plugin side I'm still getting a lot of crackling audio.

Do some of the other plugins out there work better with this game? Or have I just configured it wrong?

It will partially depend on the sd card you are using. (make sure it's class 10, it's easy to fry or corrupt cheaper ones) The Pi2 settings from retropie are the highest that don't void the warranty. I'm not sure I'd use a full linux build for emulation on the Pi2. It might work but you'll have to exit out of the x window manager likely. It's going to eat up a lot more resources than something like recalbox, lakka, or retropie which is purpose built. If you want a full linux system as well I'd just use 2 sd cards and swap them.

Mednafen probably (use retroarch). It is a mostly 2D game after all.

If you want muh HD for the 3D parts, then PPSSPP with Dracula X Chronicles works really well.

If you don't like the new translation and want muhHD then PCSXR or ePSXe are options too, though they will probably do something like non-integer nearest which looks pretty shitty.

Sounds like a bug in one of the games you were playing. Alternatively, you're trying to run the emulator on a post-XP OS without enabling compatibility mode, so things are breaking.

Not all of them, such as Genesis Plus GX that doesn't exist outside of Gamecube and Wii on it's own. Much of the time, it has more capability than the standalone version (custom resolution support, shaders, rate control, etc.).

Most of the libretro cores work the way they're supposed to. There's nothing wrong with Nestopia, bsnes, gambatte, beetle PSX, and other /vr/ related emulation cores. It's only some of the newer cores for 5th and 6th gen systems that are in active development.

Translation: It tacks on shitty filters that no one cares about, or hacks in something that wasn't designed specifically to work with the original core(s), making it even less stable.

You have a frontend that's trying to communicate with numerous cores developed by third parties. It cannot by definition by stable. Trying to make it communicate with one core is just going to result in bugs that affect how it communicates with other cores. Which is very much the case.

>Most of the libretro cores work the way they're supposed to.

No they don't. Has nothing to do with how newfangled the cores are. Retroarch routinely puts saves in the wrong directories and corrupts them, randomly fucks up controller configurations or refuses to save them in the first place, doesn't communicate settings correctly to the cores (frame rate, etc.) and inexplicably crashes. A lot.

>> No.2873325

>Translation: It tacks on shitty filters that no one cares about, or hacks in something that wasn't designed specifically to work with the original core(s), making it even less stable.

You're wrong. The cores just simply output a frame to the frontend, and the frontend handles all the scaling. This causes exactly 0 issues.

>You have a frontend that's trying to communicate with numerous cores developed by third parties. It cannot by definition by stable. Trying to make it communicate with one core is just going to result in bugs that affect how it communicates with other cores. Which is very much the case.

Wrong again. The libretro API is very stable, the ABI has not been broken yet. You clearly don't know anything about coding.

No it doesn't. Saves work fine, controllers work fine (especially with autoconfigure), cores display fine (nothing is wrong with the frame rate), and doesn't crash inexplicably on most cores (read: those that are not in active development).

Go to the buildbot nightly folder of your platform, e.g. http://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/windows/x86_64/

If I press one it goes to Z+1, and the other Z-1. When nothing is pressed it goes Z0.

But if I press both of them together it also goes Z0 which cancels out both inputs.

It's really fucking annoying.

>> No.2874357

It's probably just that the program you're using doesn't support xinput.

That's something that only happens with 360 controllers when they are used in dinput mode (though they actually fixed this on W10)

AFAIK, the only cores where you can modify that are NES and VB. You can also use custom palettes for NES and specify the anaglyph colors for VB. It's mostly done through the config file.

If it's for another core it'd probably be easier to adjust your monitor/TV/GPU settings.

Hippy Chrimbus, everyone!

I just got a 3ds (New 3ds XL, NA version), and was looking for a retard-proof guide on how to hack it so I can play SNES and Genesis games.

I have been careful not to connect it to wifi, and haven't even booted up Zelda: Link between Worlds just in case it updates automatically or something. The current version number is "9.8.0-25U".

Any tips on what I should or should not do with this bad boy? I've found a few things online but would prefer not to brick this thing after owning it only a few hours.

>> No.2875229

3DS homebrew scene is pretty shitty, and your console is essentially useless if you can't update it. The process is reversible and easy though; not exactly 'retard proof', but you can watch a YouTube video I presume.

Okay, was kind of just hoping to hear from someone who had done it so they could say what guide they followed and what they did and did not like about it.

You may or may not be able to access the eShop at any given time, Nintendo will most definitely nerf it with any firmware update, and it's just overall too janky for me. I still use an original DS flash cart for NES and GB/C emulation and it gets the job done and was $10.

Okay, cool. Nice to hear from someone with firsthand experience. I had kind of assumed my DS flashcart wouldn't work for some reason, but I was able to boot it up and Lameboy plays just fine. GB and GBC games are about 50% of what I'd be interested in anyways so I've at least got this working out of the box. I also fired up Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and it didn't update my firmware so that's nice to know.

I bought one to test. After a week with it I then went out and bought 5 more to give as gifts.

They start out a little bit lighter than OEM controllers but you can fix this by taping some pennies to the inside.

Alright niggas.

I'm about to replay one of my favorite games of all time. (pic related)

but i want to do it smoothly.

I remember a while ago someone made an overclocked version of 1964 that managed ro run Perfect dark and Goldeneye with 60 fps and no slowdowns , it was great.

I tried booting Jet force gemini in there , the game ran with a steady framerate with no slowdowns , but unfortunately 1964 cant emulate JFG properly (cant target stuff , some terrible graphical glitches too)

This was some years ago.
Hows n64 emulation nowdays?

Per-pixel rendering as opposed to per-line. The former is how the SNES truly does it, but only one game in the official SNES library is affected by doing it per-line: Air Strike Patrol. Said game manipulates rendering mid-scanline to draw the shadow below the plane. Without per-pixel rendering, the shadow does not appear.

I believe Accuracy also always outputs 512x239 for some reason, while Balanced usually only outputs 256x239 unless a game specifically makes use of the pseudo-hires and hi-res modes.

So yeah, unless you're itching to play a single game almost nobody even knows exists, there's no reason to use Accuracy.

Emulating MG is hard because it used fucking tapes to save and it was controlled with a keyboard. I would strongly suggest you just emulate the PS2 port, except you want it portable.

Anyway, I guess you could just use states and ignore the tapes, but I still don't even know what emu would be good.

I know you can use RA, but you'd probably have to make your own overlay for the controls, and I don't know if it's even possible to map controller input to an emulated keyboard for the PSP (if PSP even has a MSX core).
