    Hi guys! Is there other emultor that can simulate ps1 games in 3DS other than Retroarch? That is working better than Retroarch?
    Id love to try it if there is any ^^

    Thanks!

    imo psx emulation on 3ds only really works well on the n3ds and it's better for turn based games (FF: Tactics for instance)
     
  5. agreed, but silent hill runs good

    Retroarch gets updated all the time. Specific cores may not, but I believe pretty much anyone can help with this

    Only one person worked on Retroarch for 3DS, and that person left a while ago. It's safe to assume that no more work will ever be done on the 3DS port. It's already pretty unstable and tough to get running. The 3DS just isn't powerful enough to properly run PS1 games.

    Right.. that's why we're able to run psx games at near full speed with the latest build.

    Multiple people have contributed to the 3DS port, and still do.

    You're talking nonsense again.

    @MrHuu is right. This is nuts to say this, but (as of now) PS1 emulation on the new 3DS series is decent.

    I played Metal Gear Solid converted to *.pbp with a compression level of 1, and I'm getting a consistent 50-60 FPS on the experimental nightly PCSX ReARMed core. Certain cut scenes are somewhat messed up, but the game play is holding up well. I haven't crashed at least!

    Go try check it out.

    Wait, so when compressing to pbp you should use the lowest level of compression? I've been using the highest, level 9.

    If you use a compression level of 0 (no compression), this causes RetroArch to fail launching the game and then exit out. The minimum required compression is 1.

    This is my first time messing with PSX2PSP converter and the PCSX ReARMed core, but I read that higher compression levels require more CPU to decompress the files.

    More compression means more CPU power required to decode in real time, what did you expect? :)

    Level 1 is more than sufficient for "trimming" (super compressing gaps between files), I never really go higher than 3 (all of this on a real PSP), 0 compression is for converting for PS3 :)

    Haha I was supecting this but I wanted someone more knowledgable to confirm.
    I guess I should finally reformat my sd card as well since I haven't done it since 2015...

    My plan right now is to test pal games since I noticed that running the ntsc ones in pal mode did help a bit because it only needs to run at 50fps.

    I would say 2d games are the ones that can run in ntsc at 60fps, like Bomberman World which you could enable everything and the fps didn't get affected
