Tell me, if /vr/ is indeed so enlightened, then why is there no Sega Saturn emulation thread?

Because most of the Saturn fans here own consoles, probably.

Goddamn that game looks cool as shit
Tell me it has an English translation
I need a Saturn right fucking now

because i already played the shite out of muh saturn back in the day

It's called Dragon Force.
not only does it have an English translation, it's one of the best. by Working Designs, who localised the Lunar games and Albert odyssey.: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Working_Designs

>> No.4201848

because original hardware is a lot better, and saturn fans being men of fine taste know how best to enjoy it.

both it and its sequel have translations.

Check the wiki in the sticky.

Mednafen if you can out up with it still being in beta and the quirks that come with that. Compatability is already rivaling SSF.

>> No.4202775

>which is the best emulator?
Mednafen......(if the game you're trying to play works) Otherwise SSF.
>how accessible is Saturn emulation in general?
Very, unless you're a mongoloid.

>> No.4202782

>it's one of the best. by Working Designs

Does not compute

>> No.4202860

Mednafen is the best option you have.

I played some albert oddisey. I completely, unironically like the localization. I am not kidding at all. No shame either.

Being Asian is of advantage since you can play all those Japanese games.

>> No.4203656

yea it was released in the west by working designs.

the sequel was japan only but has an eng translation patch :)

I got an eight core AMD FX-8150 processor at 3.6 GHz and Nights: Into Dreams has slowdowns and the audio skips terribly. Did I compile this shit wrong or is it supposed to be that slow?

Thanks anon, that's very helpful.

>> No.4206156

saturn emulation is perfect, i've beaten dragon force 1 and 2 on SSF without problems.
by the way DF1 is probably the best saturn game. Panzer dragoon zwei might be the most visually impressive.

Man if they released a port or remake or sequel in spirit to dragon force they'd have my money yesterday. I've never seen anything that captured the same feel ever since.

>> No.4206665

A 100 pack of cdr and a real console. Idk if you need a mod chip, mine has one so I can't test without. Saturns are relatively cheap as far as retro stuff goes.

Because there's no fucking Sega Saturn emulation.

I don't see how being retarded and having an archaic idea of localizing makes him a weeaboo killer.

AMD CPUs are usually "More cores is more better" and have inferior single thread performance compared to Intel CPUs. Single thread performance is the most important thing when it comes to emulation.

>> No.4208357

Yep, this, a high Ghz is more effective for emulation than multi cores.

>> No.4208363

The best Saturn emu would be Kegasaturn, if Steve ever got the free time to finish it.

>> No.4208365

I don't discuss Saturn emulation because I'm trying to trick bandwagoners that the Saturn is literally unemulatable so I can flip my collection for a mad profit on ebay. Mods delete this thread it's fucking with my livelihood.

>> No.4208368

Ghz isn't a measure of how good a CPU is though. Newer 2.5 Ghz cores are better than older 3 Ghz ones for example. Using Ghz to compare CPUs only works if you're comparing two versions of a same model but with different clock rates.

>> No.4208374

True, because newer processors can take advantage of modern SSE and AVX instruction optimization thingies.

>> No.4208379

That's not just emulators, this is often the case for modern games as well. AMD CPUs just suck for gaming.

>> No.4208386


Sure, but I kind of expected it to perform better than my dusty old dual core 2-ghz proc I had before, and it's not really any faster, which is why I was wondering if there's something else going on.
I'm running on Linux, and I compiled Mednafen with GCC 6.3.0.

Also, I would kind of expect multicore to be a good thing for Saturn emulation, since you're basically emulating a bunch of different cpus and chips; I'd expect it would be best to run most of those chips on their own core.

>> No.4208736

Not even those, newer cpus just have better instruction per clock ratio.

>> No.4208859

Ehhhh, not really. Low-level emulation relies heavily on making sure that tasks are performed in the same order that they would be on the original hardware, which makes it inherently serial in nature. High IPC and clock speed will be vastly more beneficial than a bunch of idling cores.
