Re: Unreal Speccy Portable - ZX Spectrum emulator

I had a problem with my Joystick not working properly (button worked but the stick was non-responsive) turned out SDL sees my stick as a POV Hat and the emu doesn't support it. I managed to get it sorted by making a few changes and recompiling. In sdl_joystick.cpp: I added a new function 'ProcessHat...

Re: PPSSPP on Pi2?

Try running opening an ssh session from another machine and running htop to have a look at the individual core usage while it's running. There could be any number of things causing the performance hit. I've got to say it performs better than what I was expecting though, that's pretty close to full s...

Re: PiFBA released - Final Burn Alpha arcade emulator

CPS3 is weird, I've gotten CPS3 to run on the versions of PiFBA floating around by compiling in support but they're really old rom versions and there's no audio (I had a go at tweaking the audio for it but it's still garbled, I'm missing something in the conversion) though they do run at full speed....

Re: PiFBA released - Final Burn Alpha arcade emulator

Haven't seen any real changes yet, but if he's working on it it could happen. I've been working with that version of FBA-SDL posted above over the last few days and just managed to strip out the SDL rendering and replace it with some gl es / dispmanx rendering so it's now fullscreen and hardware acc...

Re: Limelight Pi

I just got a couple of pi 2's and have tried to get it to run smoothly at 1080p 60fps but no luck yet, looking at CPU and memory it all seems fine, no high load or usage of cpu/memory.. It looks like the java process takes up around 25% when there is high motion in 30fps 1080p. That sounds an awful...

Re: PPSSPP on Pi2?

I'm afraid not, I haven't looked at the PPSSPP source yet. I've been busy with FBA, but it's definitely on the "let's have a stab at that" list! I think it's looking for OpenGL libraries or just not really gelling with the RPI's GL ES implementation. The emu devs that are already familiar with the c...

I was wondering how enable Outrun in Final Burn Alpha? I know there is code there to support it, but am wondering if it has been disabled in the emulator? I don't think there is with the version of PiFBA floating around, it's based on a very old port of Final Burn Alpha for the GP2X and doesn't sup...

Re: PPSSPP on Pi2?

Yeah ffmpeg doesn't come with that library anymore, even the dev package. You need to compile the version that comes with the source and the libraries in that ffmpeg folder (but you'll have to disable all the documentation/help modules because those sources aren't there and the compiler will complai...

Re: Dreamcast Emulation on the Pi2

Compiling it was easy (and fast on a Pi2!) but you can tell the port is very, very barebones for now. It hard crashes with an unimplemented opcode error on each of the roms I fed it (SFIII, Sega Rally 2, Ikaruga and Code Veronica) but it did read the bios fine and had no problems grabbing the screen...

PPSSPP on Pi2?

Has anyone had any luck getting PPSSPP to compile on Raspian on the Pi2? I've managed to get most of it's dependencies compiled and installed (I think!) and tweak the compile script so it almost finishes compiling, but right at the very end at the "Linking CXX executable PPSSPPSDL" step it throws a ...

Re: Doom 3 on Raspberry Pi 2

I just assumed the .deb wouldn't work since it was compiled against the odroid and Mali 400 driver sources. Unfortunately, I don't really know enough about it to track down the compiler problem, though I'd assume the underlying codebase is fine (since it compiles on the odroid) and just think it's s...

Re: PiFBA on Pi 2

The CPS3 core is working for me, I've been playing the No-CD version of Street Fighter III: New Generation with it. It has no audio when playing CPS3 (but no error) so I think there's something else missing in the config or makefile. It does require some very old and pretty obscure roms though, you ...

PiFBA on Pi 2

I've been trying to enable the CPS3 support in FBA when building for the Pi 2 but I'm not having much luck. I can get FBA to acknowledge it supports the CPS3 roms, and include the CPS3 roms in it's gamelist output, but as soon as it starts to load a CPS 3 rom it throws a generic memory error and exi...
