    I used to love emulators, I used them all the time. Then I realised that if I wanted to play console games, it was better to play them on the console, the way it was meant to be played. You just don't get the same experiencie.
    That's good too, but what about obscure and rare consoles? Mind you, I do take the console over the emulator where possible. Hence I have like 4 different models of GBA, a GBC, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Dreamcast, Atari 2600, Atari Jaguar, PS1, PS2, and DS.

    Edit; and a fuckload of other systems nobody cares about. I got a Sega Genesis with 4 games for 10, hell yeah.

    Y'all are just jealous because my TV setup looks like an alien command station

    Pcx2 runs metal gear solid 2 pretty badly, but it runs MGS3 fine, weird.
    Use some speedhacks. Also if you're playing original MGS3 then it makes sense, because the camera is positioned from top like RTS games which speeds the game up. Try to run MGS3 Subsistence which has MGS2 thirdperson camera and you'll see how the game lags due to viewing the surroundings.

    It's supposed to run fine unless your PC is very old.

    Try new versions if you haven't yet.

    I did use speedhacks, but I can't get it so the cutscenes don't stutter every few seconds or that the gameplay slows down during boss fights.

    Edited:

    and the game is like 40% cutscenes anyways.

    Nostalgia. I played this a lot as a kid. I'm in training mode because my friend has yet to return my wired 360 controller, and I do not find 3d fighting games comfortable to play with the Keyboard.

    Good to know. Windwaker on Dolphin is a travesty cuz it looks so awesome. The audio just wasn't there and many people complained of a black screen of doom at some point in the game.

    I love emulators. It's nice to get all these old games to play and have lots of fun with. I get a computer just for emulators as a personal emulator station of sorts to set up in the rec room. Buy some cheap USB controllers and the possibilities are endless!

    Ooh finished that one, too. Older Dolphin revision had very funny bugs in this game like Snake "dancing" with the legs or Meryl going through wall.
    Also have this very funny bug Gsdx got in certain revision long time ago and was fixed a bit after.


    and this is how it looked way before

    SPS everywhere man.

    ePSXe is pretty much the one to go fore, you can easily find pre-configured ones so you don't ave to mess with addons

    After 10 years its legal just dont profit from it.

    I have found a shit-load of roms, iso's, that has just about everything.

    -url snipped-

    (User was banned for this post ("Warez (10 year rule isn't true)" - Hexxeh))
    Ban him for warez but leave the link in place?

    Edited:

    By the dumb ratings, I'm assuming some have misunderstood me. I snipped the URL myself, it seems odd that Copy_Cat was banned for linking to a ROM site but Hexxeh left the link on the post.

    I get 5 fps and texture errors while playing Super Mario Sunshine on Dolphin :smith:
    I had SMS playing great on an old build of Dolphin with some settings tweaks, but I posted it in the GMF somewhere and I forget where

    If I find it I'll copy it here

    EDIT: Found my post - it uses a really old build so find it if you want, or try the same settings on the current build:

    [release] Using Dolphin SVN 6700 x64 version
    NO I'M WRONG USE 6599 x64!!!!!
    NTSC ISO of Super Mario Sunshine

    Game config:

    Basically make sure nothing is checked/unchecked and have no projection hacks enabled

    Dolphin config general tab:


    Dolphin config display tab:

    Notice panic handlers off

    D3D9 plugin config general:

    EFB scale x2 was the only one that didn't make the goop slide away

    D3D9 plugin config advanced:

    All guides say real XFB but no, it made it look like shit for me

    Also turn off audio throttle[/release]

    With those settings I got 30+ FPS and no visual glitches, except the level with the giant shadow stingray - there was a certain tweak you needed to make that level playable at all but I forget it

    Doesn't MGS3 Normal edition and MGS2 SOL and Substance have the exact same style of cameras?

    What settings do you use?
    These are mine and it runs between 27-30 FPS with perfect audio.
    (Note: D3D9 > D3D11 when trying to play windwaker)



    Also what version of dolphin? (I'm using r7442) (Oh wow i'm outdated)

    After updating i'm maxing it out at a steady 30FPS. :haw:

    Both MGS2s have same camera (third person), but regular MGS3 has MGS1 camera (top view) and MGS3S has both.

    Only load times. All emulators are CPU dependant with GPU being fairly close. RAM and HDD etc. don't really matter.
    Also the MGS3 cameras
    Normal and 3rd person. I am not sure, but in original MGS3 the normal camera is even from top like MGS1.
    Notice how the fps decreases, because it has to render more stuff.

    What do you mean? Quality? Accuracy? If quality then it looks way better, if you mean accuracy yeah well there are always some glitches you may stumble upon like MGS3 is missing bloom, HDR and reflections.
    This is how it looks in software mode which is more accurate

    If the emulator doesn't cause any graphical errors, it can look much better, proper AA, better filtering for textures and much more. The chances of that happening in most games? Zero to none.

    That is the game cube version

    Also, anyone know whats up with Luigi's Mansion, the Opening cutscene is nice and crisp, but once you get to gameplay its like its running at a smaller resolution,

    Look how blurry that is compared to this

    Probably because the FMV at the start is just that? A video? It requires so much less power to render than a live game. So the resolution can be bumped up.
