What´cha emulating right now?
Im currently Emulating Chrono Cross on PCSXR but im having troubles , i cant never get it to work properly.
Any help? Tips? Configurations?

>> No.977912

Suikoden and Tales of Destiny.

Try ePSX, it's absurdly simple to setup and seems to work just fine.

I tried to use SNES9X but my usb Xbox 360 controller does not work on it. :(

I'm glad the emulation has advanced past that old plugin bullshit. I didn't even know epsxe was so outdated until I came here.

FF IX. Enjoying it so far. Don't know why I've never played through it all the way before

>> No.977938

Odd, mine works perfectly. All I do is go into controller config and when it asks for the input I just hit the corresponding controller button/stick.

I'm also on Windows 7 if that makes a difference.

Just downloaded a bunch of Saturn stuff. Apparently, Saturn emulation is really good, contrary to what I had originally believed.

Right now, I'm playing WWF No Mercy on Project 64 for some nostalgia.

Why is N64 emulation still not great? Seems like even PS2 emulation is better.

>> No.977953

I am on Windows 7, too. It is quite odd because it used to work on SNES9X but it stopped working on my most recent reformat yet it works on Steam/P64/Dolphin.

Probably has something to do with the similarity of computer games to formatted CDs, as opposed to solid-state cartridges.

Because after Beatrix lays waste to your shit/or Eiko joins up, whichever benchmark you prefer, it starts to go downhill. Up to that point though, it's one of the best FF games in the lineup. And they forgot about Freya, muh poor rat waifu.

Just use the peop's soft plug-in.

The framebuffers make the game run like ass with the opengl and opengl2 plug-ins.

I'm playing FF8.

>> No.977975

Yes, I was about to say that I cant do plugin-based emulators. All of them seem to have major problems down the road.

I prefer Xebra when it comes to PSX emulation. The interface has a learning curve, and it cant do full screen for some reason, but it works really well. It has a tendency to skip at times but thats probably because Im not running it on accuracy mode.

>> No.977980

I remember having trouble configuring Chrono Cross too; but using ePSXe and reading their forums to find the best plugins and configs for it, I eventually succeeded.

>> No.977991


Or go here:


I use Mednafen in RetroArch and it's pretty smooth with no skipping. I've heard that the audio/visual output of Xebra is not the best. The interface in Xebra is pretty bad too. Plus, Xebra hasn't been updated in a few years. Mednafen is clearly the successor.

>> No.977993


Plugin based emulators are the past, and software emulators are the future. We just need to have CPUs strong enough to do x2, x3, and x4 in software mode to completely phase them out. In the meantime I use a CRT at 480p.

Software ps1 emulation is so much more accurate.

It's ONLY good in SSF, a closed source Windows only emulator. Saturn emulation is still in the dark ages.

Would a Gamestop 360 controller work for these? The USB sort, not that wireless bullshit. Would make playing 90% of these games far better since keyboard controls don't work well during timed events. Muh undextrous fingers feel bad, man.

Specifically for ePSX, but am willing to try some other ones if those are more compatible. Somehow I doubt it, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask a dumb question now and then.

Been trying to get Ape Escape to run but I'm having some trouble. The game starts up fine but when it actually comes to playing it the analogs fuck up. Instead of moving my character the left stick just moves the camera. The right analog stick doesn't even do anything.

Ah, me too. After finishing Crisis Core and FF7, it feels a little lackluster, though. I just don't care for the characters.
I'm still in the first disc, so I hope that will change soon. Hopefully.

I want to emulate SM64, but I need an N64 converter to be able to do that. Something about playing N64 games anything other than the N64 controller feels weird.

Wired controllers work.

1. The accuracy of the emulator is high, just the audio/visual out put is bad compared to others.
2. I copied that review from a poster in Emulation General who tested it. I haven't confirmed it. The Wikia is a bit half assed and early. It needs a lot of work/review/etc.

The ePSXe pages are out dated too, since they updated to 1.9.0, and fixed some of the issues.

I've been fucking around with it for awhile now, and can't seem to get it working, no matter the tutorial I follow. Everything is installed correctly, but it will not do shit for my emulator(epsx 1.8) despite it being see-able on control panel.

Should I just switch emus? Drop 20 bucks to get the wireless shit working instead? Fuck me I'm retarded or something. I just wanna play Suikoden and AC without shitty keyboard input. Sui I can manage, but AC would require robot hands.

>Why is N64 emulation still not great? Seems like even PS2 emulation is better.

The N64 was pretty much the PS3 of its time: overly complex, with an obscure architecture that made no goddamn sense from a development POV. Even to this day some of the RSP's functions remain undocumented and unknown, and trying to emulate the system at a low level i.e. with a high degree of accuracy makes system requirements for emulation shoot up to the stratosphere. Thus, most efforts up until now have been on just roughly approximating how the N64 works (this is called high level emulation), and on getting the most popular games to run without issues and at full speed on even toaster-grade hardware. The result is the hack-and-workaround plugin hell we are currently stuck with.

>> No.978480

You must be using the old as fuck stable, then. I can run Ape Escape on PCSX-R without issue. Make sure you have a PS1 BIOS, and that it's selected under the configuration menu.

There's no intrinsic reason you can't have a GPU-enabled emulator and also avoid the whole plugin-bullshit.

Trying to play Sin and Punishment with the english texture pack.

I can't fucking get it to work.

First I tried using the Rice plugin, but then the game would either run at 15fps or 130fps. Then I tried Glide64, and it would crash every time.

Now, the fucking textures won't even load. I don't know what the fuck to do.

>> No.979102


Read the whole thing top to bottom three times, nothing relevant or helpful, didn't wanna ask a seemingly retarded question there. Read the wiki, did the tutorials it listed, grabbed all the drivers, doesn't work. It's either my stupidity somehow, or the controller just isn't compatible since it's a Gamestop version, not an actual Microsoft one. Again, could just drop 20 on the wireless adaptor and use my spare wireless for it, if that would solve the problem.

I've literally done everything by the letter that was recommended and shit won't work my fucking suikoden or Armored Core. Am I stupid anon? Am I just not worthy of doing this hobby?

Hi guys, I came here because I got an issue.

I don't know why, but Umihara Kawase Shun didn't emulate properly on no$gba. On the upper screen, it suppose to appear the scenario and umihara, but I can only listen the music and mo movement (I can move, but there's no image) The game runs on 60fps bte, no lags.

I tried to use DesMUME too, but the game lags a lot!

Is this a compatibility problem or I need to configure the emulator?

Thanks in advance to respond!

Thanks to /vr, I realized there was a "TV mode" filter for both Snes9X and Nestopia. It's a godsend, really. Now all I need is a similar filter for a Genesis emulator.

Kega has one, but it doesn't have scanlines, if that's what you want. Alternatively, RetroArch's Genplus GX core has NTSC filters, and you can compound them with a scanline shader.

I really wanted to like IS (i played a bit of the psp remake). The pacing of the game and plot progressions was much better than P3 and 4. The story seemed more interesting overall. I liked the rumor system. The characters seemed awesome (i fucking love Maya).

but... the gameplay is absolutely awful. Having to randomly guess whether to dance, persuade, interview ect. to grind out tarot cards was awful. You can kind of negate this by forming pacts with common demons to get free tarot... but it still sucks. Plus the battle system just isn't very interesting. And worst of all is ridiculously easy to the point of boredom. Also didn't like how all you have to do to get demons is grind out cards (much prefer the fusion system of the ps2 titles).

I just wanted a chance to vocalize my disappointment :(
