    Last year sometime, I tried the experimental retroarch psx emulator, but I couldn't get it to load my game. Haven't played with my cfw n3ds in around six months, so I am not sure what ps1 emulators there are now.

    No new emulators since last year that I know of. Retroarch is still the one that works best so far, and the only other one I know of is not currently being worked on iirc. The Retroarch emulator works pretty well though for games that don't require tons of resources. I had suikoden running pretty well for example.

    Don't bank on the PSX situation getting significantly better. PCSX-ReARMed's performance has stayed relatively static on all platforms for years- even platforms with substantially more active dev scenes, like the Raspberry Pi.

    No, retroarch already uses n3ds speed features.

    What? RetroArch cores have been getting a good 50fps in tons of games for half a year now.

    With some configs, you can play Resident Evil on 50FPS. On my O3DS i get 30-55 FPS average, when N3DS can get more than that.

    Yes. I've heard that without kernel access, the emulator runs like poop.

    Is not only you. 3D-intensive games like Silent Hill or Ace Combat runs like a slug.

    well I mean on the 3dsx version of the PlayStation Retroarch emulator sure they probably run like a slug on CFW (CIA) but every game runs like a slug on the 3dsx one lol

    In that particular case, you're better off playing the DS-native port, anyway.

    Indeed, but not everyone has a DS flashcart + is Resident Evil 2.
