    @alexander1970, can you or someone else test Star Fox Assault? I have used the opening FMV as a speed test. The fidelity is high enough to make the audio skip, at least with the current builds.

    Thank you.:)

    Unortunately I do not have an active SWISS/GameCube Setup,
    Maybe our great Tester @KleinesSinchen can support us.
    Or @DanPallares maybe also can help us out.:)

    I tested Star Fox Assault with the new update and the intro runs almost perfect, except for 2 seconds where audio skips a little bit.

    I've been running this build since the weekend - finally updated from a 0.4r4xx build, and my god, when jumping from a 2 yr old build to this latest one it's almost a trancendental experience!
    Other than a few stuttery fmv's it's near flawless. Prompted me to jump on Aliexpress and order a SD2SP2, a Xeno chip, and a 'bitfunx' GC2HDMI converter.
    Thanks for all the hard work over the years @Extrems ,Emukidid and anyone else that's been involved over the years.

    Interesting. Where are you running it from? SD2SP2? ODE? SDGecko? And is it uncompressed?
    I found Kirbys Airide (ntsc nkit compressed iso on pal hardware, no forced resolution) to be very stuttery during gameplay and fmv's particularly so, running via SD Media Launcher gecko.

    This is a Pre-release version!

    Swiss v0.5r854

    The new streaming audio emulation is finally here. You no longer have to worry about enabling it, or the downsides of doing so.
    Currently audio buzzing may occur during large ARAM DMA transactions, or CPU post-processing. This may be addressed at a later date.
    This should be coming to the Wiikey Fusion at a later date, with other devices to be determined.

    @Extrems committed:

    • Show which devices support audio streaming.
    • Remove legacy streaming audio emulation and read patches.
    • Enable streaming audio emulation for IDE-EXI.
    • Add workaround for AX.
    • Add streaming audio mixing.
    • Add proper license header.
    • Add basic streaming audio emulation for SD Gecko.
    • Force unlicensed discs through IPL.
    • Set development console type when USB Gecko debugging is enabled.
    Update:

    Swiss v0.5r856
    This release should fix SD card compatibility and performance regressions introduced in v0.5r845, and fix some glaring sound issues introduced in v0.5r854.

    @Extrems committed:

    • Fix conflict with software audio mixing.
    • Fix issue when a buffer underflow condition occurs in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask.
    • Remove dummy clocks.

    Star Fox Assault's intro is smooth. Kirby Air Ride is better, but still choppy. It's getting there.

    It's over nine hundred! Wait, I'm off by an order of magnitude.

    The disc read speed emulation for GC Loader has finally been completed. This is known to fix a race condition in Tales of Symphonia preventing progress past Palmacosta. Note that NKit images will have a lower simulated read speed than full images.

    You can now set a game to be loaded at startup. This require a configuration device.

    NKit images are now checked against an internal database, and the nag has been removed for discs not in Redump.

    @emukidid committed:

    • Add autoload support
    • Show size when patching too
    • Update patreon supporters list
    @Extrems committed:

    • Avoid PAL-M when using digital AV.
    • Delay command execution.
    • Update NKit size of Pac-Man Fever.
    • Finish implementing Dolphin's model.
    • Force English language on NTSC IPL.
    • Update apploader.
    • Add patches for BS2 NTSC Revision 1.2 found in DOL-001.
    • Use PVR to differentiate DOL-101.
    • Update Redump database.
    • Add database of Redump NKit images.
    • Avoid NKit message on non-Redump discs.
    • Disable game settings for unlicensed discs.
    • Add rotational latency to disc read speed emulation.
    • Skip over zero-length apploader trailer.
    • Use last sector instead of first sector as marker.
    • Add seek time to disc read speed emulation.
    • Fix accented characters on FAT.

    The only trouble I'm having is some audio hiccups in Kirby Air Ride's FMV opening. The video itself is now smooth. I'll see if I can find any other problematic game to use as a barometer.

    I don't have a legit copy of the game to test to see if it's Swiss (Well I do, but it doesn't work), but in Mario Golf Toadstool Tour, Yoshi's character model has lines/gaps.

    I thought at first this was just a quirk with the game, but looking at youtube with videos of both real hardware and Dolphin, and they don't show this error.
    It's not the ISO I have either because it showed the error in a bad dump of the game, then I found a good dump and verified the CRC with NKit and REDUMP, and still has the same problem.

    It looks as if parts of his model are not in the correct position.

    Apologies for bad picture quality.

    Green Joy-Con D-Pad Shells for Nintendo Switch


    EDIT:
    Now when playing F-Zero GX the game randomly resets itself during races, occasionally crashing the whole Gamecube requiring a restart. Booting through IPL, Emulating read speed change nothing.
