With Runahead you can get less round-trip latency than original hardware on a CRT.

It's baby-tier emulation for people who don't like to fine-tune their emulators. It makes me angry.

You can’t have less latency than original hardware. This is emufag fake news.

>> No.5655420

Less latency is not the correct term but it does help with some games. Most SNES games are fine with it, just need some adjustment on specific games or it'll look like the character warps a little bit. Same with most other 8/16-bit platforms, except the Genesis where some games glitch up a lot. And I mean a fucking lot. You will have characters warping around the place like crazy even on a setting of 1 and it's nearly unplayable. Newer platforms are a bit of a lottery. PS1 can probably handle it at times but you have to make sure you enable using sound on a separate thread (or whatever the setting was). Forget about Saturn altogether.

In any case for games like them marios or castlevanias is so, so satisfying that I have a hard time going back. I feel like there's just no lag at all with this thing. I know it's fake, but still, playing on stuff like BizHawk or standalone emulators just feels like garbage now.

Which is it faggots?

>> No.5655472

There's no such thing as "too many settings".

>> No.5655475

problem is once you hit 5th gen consoles the requirements become absurd. SNES alone struggles to run well but it's already proving to be a fucking mess of performance, supported by the fact that everyone who parades it around as an "own" to the original hardwarefags doesn't even use it themselves.

>> No.5655487

It does require a semi decent desktop processor (I use an i5 4460). I have no problems with SNES unless I'm running one of the most heavy accuracy focused cores (which to me seems dumb considering run ahead is not accurate). I currently have a PS1 with quite a few games plugged to a CRT TV. I play SOTN frequently on it, I notice how light or heavy alucard is (the game is too goddamn floaty compared to newer titles). I used to complain about emulators not dealing with it well and to be fair, now with run ahead at 1 I can barely tell the difference. Granted, I'm also using a 120hz LCD monitor instead of a 60hz one. Might have to do something with it. But without run-ahead it's noticeable, so I rest my case.

>> No.5655536

every time i use run ahead it slows the game to a crawl, what im a doing wrong?

Did you know that if you're looking for promising technologies to preemptively make people sick of you might as well just jump a whole decade ahead to neural network upscaling. Runahead may actually be truly usable in another year or two and you'll never get everyone to be parroting that it sucks before then.

Neural network upscaling makes for more eye catching shit posts too, see?

Dunno about that anon, but I wouldn't touch anything by squarepusher/twinaphex or whatever he's calling himself these days. His entire MO is to convince other emulator authors to create a "core" of their emulator for RA/libretro, then endlessly complain, whine, and bitch that they don't want to keep their "core" up to date compared to their own emulators.

He's also a massive sperg who's been going on rants for at least five years in the /emugen/ on /vg/ and elsewhere. He screams about how byuu is EVIL because he sold a license for BSNES to hyperkin because "Hyperkin stole retroarch and all these cores that people besides SP/TA made, and SP/TA should be getting that money." while taking about $1000 a month from patreon with zero accounting for where the money has gone, and stating that he would never give a dime of any of that money to any of the people who made the original emulators or cores. He also threatened to ban one guy from chat just for asking for where the money was going because he "didn't like where this line of questioning was going." You would think someone who regularly screams about other emudevs being greedy would be a bit more interested in not pulling shady shit like that, but that's SP/TA.

Ever visit the Retroarch official chat room? He constantly insults everyone else about their job, where they live, or just about anything really. He then turns around and demands that everyone treat him like a god and kicks/bans people for "disrespecting" him. He shits on the MAME devs for "hoarding improved versions of MAME" despite those "improved versions" being hackjobs that wouldn't ever meet the MAME project's coding standards or demands for accuracy. He screams that byuu and the mame team are hoarders despite all evidence to the contrary. He screams about the dev of Reicast being some "greedy russian" because the guy made a core for RA/libretro and hasn't bothered to update it. And he's stolen code as well.

>> No.5657384

Only a sperg could consider it a good thing to have an "emulation architecture" that basically cuts the code in half arbitrarily and distributes its functions between two different programs just because some peoples' OCD brains don't like having more than one emulator icon on their desktop. They're solving a problem nobody had. The worst part is that some emulators like genesis plus gx are only available as retroarch cores.

Why not just turn off vsync? That fixes the lag for me.

So after everyone called out his hypocracy in screaming about how they were making money off of emulators while he was pocketing over half the patreon money for retroarch without any accountability of where the money went, he suddenly decides the other emudevs should get some money? Shit, I guess we should forget all about the 5+ years of ranting about how everyone else is the problem. THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING! He's a good boy who din du nuffin...oh, wait, it just looks like SP/TA trying to cover his ass after realizing he made a fool of himself. Again.

Why are you defending a serial shitposter anon?

>> No.5661743

It has to calculate the resulting game state from every possible combination of inputs in less than 1/60th of a second, you need a good computer for it
On most games there won't even be a difference, in the ones that there is a difference you'd only be able to tell by running it next to one without the runahead, and in games that depend on timing it could make it worse cause the game was programmed with the lag in mind

No normal traditional non-fancy CRTs have input lag period.

Runahead on analog inputs will be a whole order of magnitude more complex for similar reasons to why it won't make light guns work either

>> No.5661962

That's not true. I thought that might have been it when I was drunk and stupid. It just waits for your input like normal then when it gets it, it plays the next couple frames at 120x or whatever it can do to catch up

There's literally dozens of small black Samsung CRTs that have a little bit of lag. Do you need a serial number? How will you move the goalposts next, after being provided one? Will you need a 360 degree virtual reality tour of the CRT and oscilloscope? Notarized by a federal court judge? Then what?

>> No.5662610

If there's dozens and you've tested them with your scope then you can you could easily provide a model number. That's different than a serial number. You'd know that if you weren't a LARPing little zoomer. There's no goalpost moving going on here kiddo. You made a claim now back it up or fuck off back to facebook.
