I've been at this all day, and I've tested three games: tetris worlds, gta san andreas, and tales of destiny: director's cut (english patched). tetris world works without a problem, but san andreas and tod do not. san andreas gets stuck at the loading screen, and I get a black screen, not even a ps2 logo, with tod. I tested an snes game just to see if retroarch was working, and it worked no problem. plus, there's the fact that tetris worlds works. does anyone know what's going on here?

Via the Dev Mode you guys access it, right? If that's revoked, I hope ya'll find another way to run emulators on Xbox Series.

Gaming PS2 on Xbox Series might sound "outdated" to people who think as such because it's old games, but many are still brilliant.

I'd definitely recommend Tekken Tag, Tekken 4, Gran Turismo 3 (and 4), Dragon Ball Z Tenkaichi 3, 18 Wheeler, Crazy Taxi, Black, God of War, MotorStorm Artict Edge, etc.

I think I've got this, got this by ass! :P though ps2 is hit and miss, the other emulators I've tried through ra are great, removed the () in the playlist settings to get rid of the (USA) etc., and I downloaded all the artwork for nes, genesis, snes, a couple gamecube games (also tested windwaker, which worked, though the music skips sometimes), and ps2 (didn't test anymore ps2 games). I removed explore from the tabs list. I'm not sure what it does, but it says "initializing" when you scroll over it, causing the boxart to disappear. that no longer happens now.

  • Veho @ Veho:
    Very very very very broadly speaking.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    But no.
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    emulation isn't telling the silicon to perform a specific way, it's just translating the commands into something the cpu can understand
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga runs them natively
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and i assume there is a level of verification that is not possible with emulation since you can actually probe the pins to verify that it behaves the exact same as real hardware
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    so it's easier to get it 1:1
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there aren't even virtual pins with emulation that you could "probe", it doesn't go that deep
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    So fpga PS2 when? Hehehe
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    fpga PS1 isn't even out yet
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Just saw an article about Anbernic rg40xxh as a "cheaper alternative to RG Cube". I love it when they do that.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    "Etch-A-Sketch, cheaper alternative to the iPad"

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i guess they were thinking in emulation capabilities
  • Veho @ Veho:
    In emulation capabilities one can run Gamecube and the other can barely run n64.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    One is Android 13 and the other is Baked Beans OS 0.6 (I'm not even kidding)
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    PC ftw lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    May I suggest a pocket calculator as a cheaper alternative?

  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Veho you may be right, all in my PC is probably 1800 dollars and that's using refurbished and mid range parts lol
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Although some stats are pretty cool 38TBs of storage not counting external drives
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    People ask why so much.... ROM sets for even PS2 just eat up that much
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Why so much? Because we have it in our minds we need the latest and greatest when pc performance peaked at a consumer level
  • HUNTERFOX @ HUNTERFOX:
    Just finished getting the rest of the emulators on my 3ds. Now I have. gb/gba/sn64/snes/nes
