So I am playing Golden Sun on GPAsp which I got on this site, but it keeps freezing when I meet the blue and pink people. It froze a few times before that too. Is there anything that can run this without freezing, I really don't care about sound and graphics I just want to play...

There is not. Both Golden Sun games have issues as does Banjo-Kazooie. Best you can do is turn the frameskip up and hope for the best right now. It's been a while since I updated the retro-emu thread but after looking around, the emus I posted are still the most up-to-date...

Actually gPSP-J is the fastest emulator and is the one listed in the sticky, I much recommend it. Yes, it's a modification of the original by a japanese author, but it's not just UI changes, there's lots of improvements and speedups (fast forward actually does it's job a majority of the time). Using it I've been able to play some games that older versions choked on.

I can't pick up any Mercury Djinn, the game always freezes on me. I'm using a fairly old build though. No recent build can at least play through that without freezing? Otherwise the game runs almost flawlessly, just the occasional slow down on the overworld or when picking up a djinn.

Hi, this.

To get past the freezing in the opening FMV, simply save and load state every few seconds.

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
    +2
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that
    +2
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
