A question for XM6 TypeG users :

Been trying this emulator and there's one problem, the screen doesn't scroll smoothly while playing horizontal games. Is there any solution for this?


I'm quite new to this emulator myself but I would think the answer is no. I doubt these games were exactly 60hz (could be wrong) which they would need to be to produce stutter free scrolling on what I presume is an LCD you are playing on.

If you are not talking about stutter and more non uniform pixels its because xm6 doesn't have any integer scaling for its various resolutions, just the sliders in the display tab. There are various forks that do but they all gave me serious graphical glitches.

I would love to work out how to use the mess version and use the scaling options that I know how to use from mame but I could never work out how to remap the keys in game.

Yeah you need the help of at least 14 press articles before a carrier will pay attention to your case lol. Not surprised.

For having been in charge of investigating lost packages before I can tell they all suck, all postal services and all private carriers.
There's so much stuff going in and out they just don't give a fuck, something like lost packages is too much to handle so they won't do a thing until you give them hell, sue and all the shit.
Be certain that they can find anything that went through their network (as long as it's not been stolen), but you have considerably more chances to make them move their asses if you talk to them as a pro with a weighty account.

Shouldn't be surprising at all, if you look at the actual specs of it.

Code:
Allwinner R16 (4x Cortex A7, Mali400MP2 GPU)
SKHynix (256MB DDR3) RAM


Looking at some Geekbench results, it's around the same level of power as the $50 CDN Android-on-a-stick I bought a few years ago.

This isn't completely related to the topic, but Nintendo C&D romhacking.net, and the site people won't release an archive. This is shitty.

Worthy indeed, hmmm. The site is still down, though. Guess i'll wait to see how it turns out.
Thanks for mentioning this.

the text up at romhacking.net currently states:
"The patient is alive, however RHDN will remain in the ICU for awhile and cannot accept any visitors."

anyway, i doubt nintendo was responsible. first off, nintendo doesn't have the authority to remove an entire site like that, they can only demand removal of files that they believe violate their ip/copyrights. second, why now? there's no way rhdn was below nintendo's radar up until now. nintendo is very aggressive when it comes to rights enforcement, if they had grounds to take down the site they'd have probably done it a long time ago. third, distributing patches for copyrighted software is (most likely) legal, provided the patch itself contains no copyrighted material, and is distributed freely (important if you ever wish to claim fair use as a defense). for an example of what happens when you ignore the former or latter, see pokemon prism and the case of microstar v formgen, respectively.

:shock:

I too am shocked that the Wii Shop Channel is still online.

Nice to get confirmation that the Wii's wifi connection was shit, 3 minutes vs like 10 seconds on a decent network adapter? That's a big enough difference that Nintendo could if they wanted to detect it and ban you for EULA breach or something.

Romhacking.net is up again. The fake Romhacking Twitter account seems to have been 4chan's doing, or they've taken it over recently. That's a weird thing to do. I'll never understand Twitter.

"Have you ever wanted to put your credit card information into an emulator?"

No, I can't say I have .. :shock:

There was an ethernet adapter for the Wii and Wii U, although I don't know how much faster it was than wi-fi. Apparently it didn't work half the time anyway .. GG Nintendo.

mGBA now has preliminary DS support and will be released in the near future as medusa.

https://mgba.io/2017/04/08/medusa/

endrift wrote:
Before you get too excited, please allow me to state that this is still a very early work in progress—this isn’t even a 0.1 build of medusa; it’s still buggy, slow, and incomplete. This is more of a proof of concept to show off what I’ve been working on since June of 2016, and the reason mGBA 0.6.0 still isn’t out. While a good number of games work relatively well, virtually every game has graphical bugs, and many have even worse bugs. So caveat emptor, this is not a real release, and medusa won’t be replacing any other DS emulators any time soon.


This is the second new DS emulator we've seen in the past month, the first having been melonDS. Both are sure to become quality alternatives to DeSmuME.

Obviously not the kind of thing at the forefront of anyone's mind, but is there any serious LCD game emulators out there? Like Game and Watch or Tiger?

From googling, there only seems to be hand crafted recreations and such.

Retroarch added a Game & Watch core a little while back, not tried it myself however.

https://github.com/libretro/gw-libretro

EDIT: Looks like the Retorarch core is based off the recreations by Madrigal too, looks like there is no real emulation out there...

PPSSPP got updated to 1.4 some weeks ago. Seems to improve sound, and now supports D3D11.

MESS has been getting a few, I believe. Using original code with painstakingly cloned LCD layouts.

It's weird, right? But I'm indeed super nostalgic towards it. NESticle is the first emulator I have EVER used and boy, was it ever mindblowing at the time. For me it was in 1999, what pushed me towards emulation was my ARDENT desire to play Final Fantasy 2 and 3 in english.

Okay, had a question that might be sliiiightly off topic, technically.

So I'm hoping to play Dreamcast Mars Matrix. I own a Dreamcast, but I cannot for the life of me find a copy of it for sale that's less than hundreds of dollars.

A friend suggested I burn the disc from an iso and play it on my dreamcast, as an alternative to NullDC emulation.

I treasure my Dreamcast though, and don't wanna go shoving random burned data discs into it. So if anyone has any guides or suggestions on this good/bad idea, I'd really appreciate it.

Get imgburn (http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download) and the Padus .CDI File Mounter (bottom of that page). Unzip the contents to imgburn's main directory. Burn the cdi file at 2x speed, or you might get skips or disc errors.
edit: If you don't feel like installing imgburn, try this tutorial to get a portable version (scroll down to How To Extract): https://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=583
Being freeware from 2013, it installs crapware if you are not careful during installation, so the portable option works better.
