>> No.2885234

>the faster we can force shitty rips out of circulation
we have what we have and just because there is something new of something old doesn't mean that's what people have.
If good versions of a game are better, they will rise to the top, but
telling someone to "download a proper rip" is a pathetic excuse for inherent incompatibility.
please go and fuck yourself with this kind of feeble attempt at legitimizing a crappy emulator.

>> No.2885285

Not the guy you are arguing with, but bin+cue/etc is considered the proper format for PS1 rips. This is because of the number of multi-track games. I use bin+cue when I use epsxe as well, since it supports it. Why would you want to use a sub-par rip?

I asked in the last thread near the end, and I didn't get much, so I'll ask again.

I downloaded Metal Gear Solid: Integral for the PC.

I know this is Emulation general...but I figure people on here would be best fit to help. I'd like to avoid emulation if possible...because I'm lazy and lack a gamepad.

The visuals themselves work and so does the game...the only problem is that there is no sound, and it runs in windowed mode but that's a side problem, I've downloaded patches and that didn't seem to do anything.

>Newer Hardware, NVIDIA GeForce 750Ti, Windows 10.
>I've put the .exe in compatability settings and no change.
>I've had this game before on the same PC, the only difference is my OS (used to be Windows 7) and the Graphics Card.

I really want to play this game again...but I'm at a loss of how to solve my issue, any help would be appreciated.

You'll have to map the controls to your keyboard but that's pretty easy in most emulators and some do it by default. What release of windows are you using? I know 7 has an xp mode. You might need to run it in that.

Not sure if 10 has an xp mode but I'm pretty sure that's where the problem lies. PC software that old is bound to have problems on 10. I think it would be faster for you to just emulate. If you have the processing power (doesn't take much and you likely do) you could always fire up windows xp using virtual box and test it in that to see if that's where your problem lies.

Yeah, you can map it to both keyboard and mouse. I haven't done that in years so off the top of my head I don't know which epsxe, mednafen, or pcsx does it easier.

Yes. You'll need to download a copy of XP though. You'll find them on any of the torrent sites. You just mount the iso with virtualbox and it installs really quick b/c it doesn't actually have to read from a physical disc. The virtualbox software will walk you through everything else for improved performance once it's installed (like using your actual gpu, it sounds complicated but it isn't they lay it all out for you once xp is installed.)

In Specs wouldn't an Amazon Fire TV be an ok device for retro-gaming? I'm obviously new to the general but wouldn't it be possible on this Android based device? I think I read somewhere that you can sideload apps so something like RetroArch would work, no?

>> No.2885728

It was at one point but amazon has taken steps to prevent rooting or doing anything fun with their devices. It will likely get bricked on you through an update. People have been installing kodi on top of their software for a bit. The hardware is capable but amazon actually makes no money off selling the devices. Thus they may choose to brick you for not using services that generate them income. It's pretty shitty imo.

>> No.2885856

Yes. You're loading it alongside anything currently running on the device. (The interface, it's updates, it's data collection, etc) It's a confusing and unnecessary term I'll admit. Think of it like most os's. You can shut off unnecessary services/software and focus those resources on what you're actually doing. You can't do that with an amazon fire tv. Shutting down their services to free up more resources will brick your device. Thus, "side-loading" which really only means being forced to run your software alongside theirs. I feel people have a right to root the hardware they pay for. Amazon isn't making money on the hardware though. They are making money on the service. You are the product in this case. Amazon isn't necessarily wrong about this. If they were genuinely generating decent income off the hardware then I'd feel differently.

It's plugged into my living room tv, as well as many original "retro" consoles (9 if you're curious). I have the nvidia shield on the tv in my bedroom as well as my self built gaming pc. I emulate on many devices. From time to time I even do on my laptop, phone, and tablet if I'll be traveling for a bit. I enjoy emulation that works well. My Pi2 is great for it's purposes.

>> No.2887682


Are you using a free software operating system?

If so then Retroarch is great. (Apparently there are builds for the Botnet too, don't use it).

It works and can play games out of the box with no problems.

Getting it setup *exactly* how you want can still take a bit of time, e.g. setting up system-specific settings (gameboy games in green, roll off the highs on the genesis, 8:7 vs 4:3 for snes, etc)

I highly recommend you take the additional hour or so to learn and setup EmulationStation, as it provides a much nicer frontend and makes browsing your Rom collection better with boxart, date released etc.

>> No.2887698

Humm. I'm on vanilla Android (Nexus phone), using a build from Fdroid. Maybe I'll give it another shot

>> No.2887713

It depends on the game. There are PS2 and GC games that you can run on a pentium 3, and there are ones that literally can not be run on currently existing hardware.

The CPU is the most important, and single core performance is usually all that matters, but if you use PCSX2's software mode, which is necessary for some games eg Ace Combats, then you'd want to have 8 cores more than top tier per core performance.

You don't need much of a GPU for the most part, but it can become the bottleneck if you're trying to do 4k IR with 8xSSAA or something.

Alright guys I got a problem for you.

I open Retroarch.
Trying to play some Ocarina of Time.
I go and get MUPEN64+ core.
I soon discover it runs poorly.
I am told online to change my graphics driver from OPENGL to D3D.
I make the change and now Ocarina of Time runs perfectly.
Decide to switch over to some SNES games.
I went into the settings in BSNES to see if changing to D3D would allow me to use accuracy mode rather than balanced mode.
It still would not.
I was able to play Super Mario World just fine for the remainder of the session.
When I closed Retroarch and reopened it I was no longer able to play SNES games using any BSNES core.
Even mercury cores for BSNES will not work. The games appear to load and then crash at the last second.
I thought this was perhaps a problem caused by changing the video driver to D3D.
I go into the settings for each one of the BSNES cores and I intend to change them all back to OPENGL.
They are already set to OPENGL despite how I changed them earlier.
I try changing them to D3D as well and that still crashes.
There is no error message aside from "Retroarch.exe has stopped working."
Does anybody know what I did wrong here? I am genuinely confused about all this. I even deleted the core files and redownloaded fresh new ones and it still crashes just the same.

>> No.2889060

I have never gotten OOT to work with retroarch. If someone has a solution I'd like to know. I just play it on my N64 but that's a pain to pull out of the closet.

>> No.2889065

Yeah I hate fighting with all the wires too. For me all I had to do was get MUPEN64+ core or whatever exact name it is from the core downloads in Retroarch. Then You set your video driver to D3D instead of OPENGL and it should work just fine. No more lag or skippy music. But be warned it might fuck all your other games up like mine did. I can only run SNES games in BSNES accuracy now, and my PC really can't handle that so I basically can't play them anymore unless I go and pull the SNES out of the closet and blow the dust out of my cartridges. But we both know that would involve standing up.

>> No.2889068

Mupen64plus only works with OpenGL. If Glide64 plugin runs poorly, try using Rice or GLN64. They'll have more glitches but they will run faster.

>I went into the settings in BSNES to see if changing to D3D would allow me to use accuracy mode rather than balanced mode.

D3D would only make a difference if your GPU was really awful at running OpenGL. bsnes accuracy is highly CPU intensive, so it doesn't matter if it's D3D or OpenGL. Just use Balanced because it's twice as fast and just as accurate except for one game that uses mid-scanline effects.

Are you using per-game configs? Turn that off for now, and set video_driver = "gl" in the base retroarch.cfg and try again.

Also, you can get the error console log to file by launching RA from the cmd line like this:

retroarch --menu --verbose >> log.txt 2>&1

So trying to run Red Earth in the latest version of Final Burn Alpha and trying to coin up and start the game gives an ingame error of No CD Rom Drive. Is there something wrong with the rom I found?

Also for some reason the options for creating and inserting Neo Geo memory cards is greyed out even while I'm running a Neo Geo game. Do I need a more recent BIOS or something to enable those options? Or is there something else I have to do in order to use memory cards on the Neo Geo roms?

How do you switch shaders in retroarch ?
I tried to find it in retroarch itself but there doesn't seem to be an option for it, I can change it with the hotkey i set up to close down the fullscreen game with my gamepad (select) and then pressing m or n to filter through them but it only takes the ones in the root folder and not any of the subfolders for some reason, do I need to move the shaders out of the subfolders into the rootfolder or how does this work ?

Probably because it looks and maybe feels cheap. I've not used it, but money isn't an issue. I was mainly asking about playstaion controllers because I know they are durable and comfy.
