Re: Problems with some Origin games

Snowman, You must understand that main releases does not come often, it might be 6 months or more, before v14 will come. Sarah is doing major rewrite of the code , and she does it only in her free time, so do not insist anymore on such things. If You really want , you can compile it Yourself. Like o...

Re: Sound stutters whatever the configuration

Hi there, Your CPU seems to be to weak for PCem, whenever You will not have 100% emulation speed, then sound will slutter. Ty 486 CPU at 66MHz and see if You have 100% emulation, and if it slutters, then there might be a problem. i have i5 running at turbo on 2.7 and trully 100% i got only p60 or p5...

Re: Interstate '76 - Missing triangles

A.Naim , You got nice CPU but it wont anyway run at 3.4 if You are using all 4 cores, unfortunately boost speed shown is only valid if it runs on single core (bloody marketing), so on 4 i will be less. For example my I5 2410m on single core has a potential to run close to 2.9 but on 2 cores it can r...

I just think You really have no clue, how fast Your CPU is runing , and assuming You got I5,I7 then 2.4 will be the base frequency. I run 2.7 GHz I5 and 233 MH...

Hm.. i was testing a 64 bit Linux version, and it is fault on the recompiler, there are known problems to it and 3d mark 99 does not work either. if you want to have it running, you must turn off recompiler on CPU and GPU as well, but sometimes its fine with only GPU off.

Great news, and it looks like it is much more stable in linux 64, but host CPU requirements rise about 20-30% and it is much slower, but overall it seems to work better. well i guess nothing for free and stability costs performance.

Re: Problems with Dynamic Recompiler in 64-bits Linux

Thank You.
BTW, 430vx accept 486DX4 cpu, and with recompiler it causes much less garbage than Pentium cpu's on 64bit Linux.
Edit: almost no problems with 486. :P

Re: Linux

I got running the AntiX linux, again, thanks to EluanCM in his post about problems with 64 bit dynarec. I simply deleted "CPU_REQUIRES_DYNAREC" in cpu.c on Mobile Pentium MMX 120 and when i turn of recompiler it runs , no probs. So its all good, as Sarah said , the 64bit dynarec is on Her list.
