So what's the status of the emulation scene for consoles in general? Last I heard things like Saturn, original Xbox, and maybe PS2 were still hard, but most everything else is looking up. I could be wrong though, which is why I'm asking. I hear even 7th gen is doing good.

Quick rundown on the hardest to emulate consoles still remaining? And which ones are more or less complete as far as playability?

For Saturn, Mednafen works well, and if you can't run that, SSF with a disc mounter works okay (make sure you increase the emulation accuracy in the settings, or else some shit won't run).
OG Xbox still doesn't have anything stable or good.
PCSX2 still kinda sucks, and afaik, there isn't anything else for PS2.
N64 is really good now, use m64p.
PS1 is great, use DuckStation.

I dunno what's a good DC emulator. I tried Flycast, but that had really choppy frame pacing. Demul works, but has a few glaring visual flaws in games.

Saturn is fine, Xbox is coming along (I play DOAX all the time, only thing the emulator is missing is pressure-sensitivity for the buttons), PS2 emulation is fine and mostly glitchless if you're cool with software mode (default resolution). Most games will work upscaled as well, but upscaling still introduced visual artifacts in some titles. PS3 emulation is getting pretty good too, Demon's Souls and Ninja Gaiden play fine for me in 4k.

The "new" harder-to-emulate stuff is going to be things like Xbox 360 and Switch (though Switch emulation is actually getting pretty good)

>> No.7999641

>>7999127
MAME (if you have a fast CPU) is actually becoming pretty decent with a lot of 3D stuff.
Most PS1-based arcade stuff runs well on even somewhat slow machines in MAME, but you can also run shit like NFL Blitz and Vapor TRX, which have Voodoo-based video.
Namco's System 22 based stuff also works reasonably well (Rave Racer, Time Crisis -- and they fixed the weird hitbox issue TC had so it's actually playable).

and even places where you wouldn't reasonably use MAME are better than you'd expect (for example, NAOMI emulation -- still unplayable due to framerate and some bugs, but shit does boot into the game proper and runs at ~50% speed on a fast CPU, and those problems are considered fixable, with one of the bigger showstoppers being the lack of an SH4 recompiler core that works well enough)
Work is being done on Model 2 right now, but it's still far too buggy to actually play (unless you like playing Sega Rally and being shot into space after going over a hump).

I have too many little issues and I really don't want to fuck around with settings for EVERY game I want to play. AFAIK theres no way to save individual configs for games either, so you just have to wiki it every time and fix it to get it working.

"PS2 emulation is fine" is cope for true poorfags who can't afford a PS2. When you can throw just about any game at the emulator and it'll run the same as on real hardware, that's fine.

Again, software mode in PCSX2 is essentially perfect with the same output fidelity (or better) as a real PS2 with an HDMI mod.

Hardware mode is basically icing on the cake. Sure, some of games will have visual errors that can't be corrected yet, but if you're recommending a base PS2 anyway, then software mode competes with it all on its own. If you're gonna call someone a poorfag, call the ones who have such a shitty rig their CPU can't handle the emulation of an early 2000's video game system.

So, I just tried out xemu, and being able to play JSRF for half an hour with no major issues yet is something I never expected to be able to do on PC.
The worst I've seen so far is that there are a few sound bugs with odd noises being played.
Shit's great.

The only dumb issue was trying to convert the redump ISO I had of the game to something xemu would read, ended up using WSL to run Linux commands and the command 'dd if=game-redump.iso of=game.iso skip=387 bs=1M'.
Using extract-xiso like the xemu documentation said didn't want to work for me.

>Everything up to 32-bit
Just dandy, pretty much perfected by now.
>PSX
Pretty damn good between Mednafen and DuckStation. The only real problem game for emulation is that Monkey King game which actually plays okay on older toaster emulators like PCSXR and ePSXe iirc.
>Saturn
Mednafen and SSF are fine, SSF is still kind of a pain in the ass to set up but better than it used to be.
>PS2
PCSX2 works but it has a lot of issues, especially without a top-end CPU to bruteforce games in software mode when necessary. Play!'s progress has been so slow I don't even know if it's still in development, and DobyStation might be cool but it'll be a long time before it can replace PCSX2.
>PS3
RPCS3 is a great emulator for the games it can run as long as your hardware's up to the task. The developers take a lot of pride in their work and it's actually better to run PS2 ports through it than playing on PCSX2 in many cases.
>Xbox
Xemu exists and it does work, but still has lots of issues, still very early in development though. CXBX-R is nice and fast for the tiny handful of games it can actually run but I don't think it'll ever be at the same level as Xemu.
>Xbox 360
Xenia is making nice progress, and even runs a few 7th gen console exclusives better than RPCS3 can (Red Dead Redemption and Condemned 2 are notable examples), but it still has tons of issues and its interface is too sparse.
>Dreamcast
Demul just werkz, though it sucks that it can't upscale to HD. Redream is nice but I don't like the closed-source payware approach they took. Flycast is also nice if you have the patience to set it up properly.
>N64
It's not terrible if you have the patience to set up Project64 correctly (but it takes a LOT of patience). Mupen64 just works at this point when all else fails.

I know, I literally said "no real way to autoconfigure games to just work".
It fixes a lot of games but it is still rather unintuitive and its still more effort than just having profiles set up for every game you have and having it just work whenever you want it to work like the emulators I stated in my fucking post.

This mentality sucks. I donated to PCSX2 back when they actually had a fucking button for it and I try to help by getting all my programming friends to take an interest in it. If I were a programmer I'd be programming this shit myself.
I think approaching all criticism with "ITS A FREE PIECE OF SOFTWARE AND IT WORKS ON MY MACHINE AND ITS GOOD CAUSE I SAID SO" is just fucking reductive, we need to vocalize this cause its been shit for like 10 years (it has gotten way better mind you) but we just want to play the games like everyone else we just don't want to put up with weird issues constantly or some piece of software that isn't the most user friendly.
Maybe I'm wrong for wanting an emulator as good as PPSSPP or Cemu for my favorite system but I think someone has to say this shit so we can actually get an improved piece of software.

Open PS2 Loader has issues in a few games, but they're mostly rarer stiff. Off the top of my head:
- Klonoa 2 doesn't play sound properly
- Gundam Zeonic Front usually (95% of the time) fails to load stage textures. The level geometry is there, you just can't see it.
- Another Century's Episode 3 always fails to load in the same exact stages.

It's rare though. A handful of games will time the refresh and lock up with a region protection message, and those are mostly the stuff released at the tail end of the console's lifespan. There's are patches available for pretty much everything that's in this list though.
For the SNES you don't have a region selector that affects the games directly so it's only the small number of them that have a region lockout. Again patches are available and carts like the SD2SNES can auto-region patch. There are a few games that will run badly in PAL like some DSP games like Mario Kart, but since there's PAL versions of those games, just run the PAL version.

Maybe you can pretend to have some sort of superiority once you can FPGA past the 4th gen without issues, fart sniffer. The lag I have is quite low enough. I doubt you're in the .0001% percent of gamers where that fucking FRAME will affect much.

I've played games and own the libraries from every system except for the XBoxs and like Switch, which I haven't looked into. I haven't played every single Rom, but the only time I've run into any problems are with PS3. Most decent titles crash at some point. I haven't had any problems with PS2 yet. I had a Ryzen 1700 and ran into problems with Liberty City Stories, but ever since I upgraded to 5800x, its flawless.

As long as you have a good solid modern CPU, you should be fine with almost anything. I was able to play Breath Of The Wild with 1440p upscaling and texture packs on Cemu with minimal fps drops, and I'm sure it looked way fucking better than on Wii U or Switch.

But yeah, that's my experience.

As for input lag, that whole thing is somewhat overblown. A normal person even on a mechanically demanding game is not going to notice a difference.

you'll probably have way better success with xemu than cxbx-reloaded, but it also needs files to be converted
you're gonna probably have to do the command in that post under Linux or WSL or something (I think it literally just makes a copy with the first 387MB of the file removed)
rename the disc image to game-redump.iso, run the command in that folder, then rename the new game.iso back to whatever the name of the game was

it's actually kinda dumb and I'm a bit surprised that xemu doesn't just have an option that skips the beginning of the ISO

>>8001145
xemu basically only really supports xinput controllers, so yeah, it'll work

2nd to 5th generations are really good, even for a lot of the failed systems. I've had a bitch of a time getting Mess to run CD-i games through retroarch though, there doesn't seem to be a good solution for that system.

For 6th gen, Dreamcast and Gamecube are great. PS2 seems to be alright, but you have to mess around with settings it seems on a per-game basis. OG Xbox still needs a lot of work. Some games work better on CXBX Reloaded and complete dogshit on XEMU, and vice-versa.

7th gen emulators seem to be coming along, I've had issues with Xenia not displaying the games I downloaded. Some Japanese shmups I just get a black screen. I haven't even gotten around to downloading and trying out RPCS3. My PC has a 4th gen i5 and GTX 1060 6gb.

A fucking shitshow, and became even worse on everything but Ryzen+RTX on Windows 10 because they decided to "remove plugins" by integrating them into the main tree over time and their only criteria for selection was "works on my machine". For example Linux users haven't been able to remap contrillers for eight months now. I gave in and just bought the real console, will be softmodding it soon.
