    Feel free to contribute to the list!
    To do so: mention a game in the comment section or request editorial permission on the spreadsheet!
    Please use the compatibility list as the nds-bootstrap list is used, thanks.

    :!:Games are tested on N3DS only:!:

    :!:What you deem playable might not be the case for others and vice versa:!:


    :!:Assume that the games on the list have V-sync/ audio-sync turned off, audio resampler to nearest and possibly frameskips:!:

    :!:The games are tested on different versions of PCSX, so compatibility might be better for a certain game (with newer versions) than what appears on the list:!:

    How did you manage to get FF VII to run well?

    While I eventually switched to playing on a PSP, since I had it available and wasn't too far in the game anyways, "Grandia" works fairly well on 3DS. It's not quite full speed, but fully playable at something like 50 frames per second. The only drawback is that you can't use frame skip to bump up the game speed without breaking text boxes, and the music has a bit of static that some people may find tolerable but I found a bit annoying.

    As long as audio emulation was disabled, I've had good success in the past with Crash Bandicoot 1 & 2, Intelligent Qube (Kurushi for all you PAL/NTSC-J folks), and Skullmonkeys. None played entirely perfectly, but they played well enough. I found that I.Q. even played acceptable with sound emulation enabled.

    After that, I deemed the 3DS not able to play PSX games well enough yet so I quit trying. YMMV.

    Well I basically turned V-sync off in the settings, nothing else I believe. The game works pretty well I'd say. Definitely playable. 50-60 fps, even a few tenths above 60 fps for some reason.

    Try FFIX I used to play it months back at 60fps with drops to 40fps with sound.

    I haven't tested it in like two weeks so I don't remember fully. But I believe it was better than that. Will check out in a bunch of hours.

    JoJo's Bizzare Adventure/JoJo's Venture works well (I think...) Haven't used it in a LONG time.

    The adventure of little Ralph works well. It seems like a great and difficult platformer!

    @ArviDroid if you have a wii u, the wiisxr app runs almost all ps1 games at full speed with the overclock patch, if you don't have a wii u disregard this.

    Well, I'm mainly looking for good games. Not frickin' Bubsy 3D :P

    How did you get good results for Crash? I only get 25 fps...

    Someone needs to take some time and optimize the RetroArch emulators instead of just doing shitty ports.

    Some real 3DS specific development would be nice, yeah. At least we've seen a NES and SNES emulator port with some 3DS specific optimizations applied.

    You can create a list of games that works for this emulator, it can help everyone!

    I'm guessing symphony of the night will work.

    Sadly it runs at unplayable fps...

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Well, I thought about this, but if I'm getting encouraged to I think I will! But I don't know how I should use the thread...

    1.Should I ask to have the thread name changed or make a new thread?

    2.Should I demand that the games suggested must have been tested by the suggestors so that they play at an good fps for their genre (50-60 fps)?

    3. Should I list non-working games?

    4. List which settings needed to get good fps for a game, if needed at all?

    I have never taken any initiative like this before so I want to ask these questions to make the thread as good and structured as possible. Hell, I'm not even sure you know my answers! So I'm asking everybody!
