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.

Sounds like he's still up for sending the rest of his games. But we'll be doing it in much smaller lots, through another carrier, with better insurance, going forward.

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.

This Twitter account was just created this year, and a bunch of people are saying its a fake account. Figured it was worth mentioning.

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.

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.
