    Going through a few games atm but not seen any "visible" improvement in them.
    This is most likely the best it can get, unless someone will take the time to make one optimized specifically for n3ds.
    Well most if not all games are atleast playable, though not "perfect".

    IIRC there are still things that can improve perfomance like Hardware Rendering, but it's very hard to implement AFAIK. That's what makes perfomance of the standalone snes9x port good on O3DS.

    There's probably improved stability.

    Also I got some games to run faster using the PBP format suggested as well as when turning frame throttle off. Sadly this does make some screens run too fast in some games, like FMVs and loading screens.

    Is the maximum run speed set to 0.0? That works best with pcsx-rearmed.

    On the one i tested as PBP eeyup, got some extra FPS with the settings/format still slight sound crackle though much better then before.
    Still changing the rest of the iso/bin's to PBP atm.

    Thanks, I´ve found a program called PSX2PSP. It´s very easy to convert my bin-files to the PBP-format.

    I'm hoping someone can help me out with this...

    I was previously using PCSX Rearmed 1.3.6, everything was working fine up until a while ago when the audio stopped working for some reason (audio driver fails to load). Hearing the new updates are stable again, I decided to update thinking that would fix my problems. The latest stable (1.6.7) simply crashes my system whenever I boot a game. The newest nightly does boot games again (9/5 nightly), and they actually run really well with the PBP format, but I'm still getting the audio driver failure and am not getting any sound.
    Here is what it says in the log:

    [ERROR] failed_to_start_audio_driver

    What's weird is that it doesn't always happen, I'd say maybe 10% of the time it will boot up a game with sound. But most of the time I get that error.

    Possibly related but not entirely sure, it's also crashing my system quite a bit more than it used to.

    Does anyone know what might be causing these problems?

    Try deleting your retroarch config. If that doesn't work, try restoring a recent NAND backup.

    Any idea where I can get the scph5501.bin for the PSCX emulator? All of the collections of .bins for the system I've found seem to have it missing.

    Sorry, this cannot be shared on here. All I can share is to google search scph5000.bin since I was able to find a dump of 5501 just a few links down.
    If it's that paradise site, it should work fine.
