    The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky (the first game) runs pretty well. There are issues at area transitions (massive slowdown, the transition fade effect pulling an image that hasn't been onscreen for a few seconds), but beside that, it seems completely playable.

    Spends most of the time at 100% emulation speed, but drops to ~15-20FPS in busy areas like Grancel. No music slowdown, but still completely fine with some frameskipping. You can even turn it up to 2x internal resolution without significant issues. It's a pleasure to play.

    Lemmings works quite well, too- full speed, with rendering issues in most levels' backgrounds.

    Wipeout Pulse runs at ~40% emulation speed, with minimal graphical glitches.

    The forwarder app linked in the first post works fine, but there doesn't seem to be any way of quitting the program gracefully from its Exit button - it fades to a blue screen, then just restarts the app. You have to tap the home button between app reloads to bring up the system Home menu.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    I didn't get to page 19 yet. What I did do (or didn't), was curse you out. I had hoped you'd find the humor with the (damn) parenthesis (at the same
    damn
    time; tomato, potato.

    I'll put money down you're too weeb'd up? Get Murrica'd.

    I guess this lesson is: clearly describe your problem; since you didn't say what your problem was, other than, "As far as I can tell, that feature doesn't work at all. I've tried on Linux and Android a couple months ago, and Wii U recently. Never worked.", I had to take it as, "Let us start at the beginning, because I know nothing." You didn't even mention, "I've tried running Wii U in conjunction with Android, Linux, Mac; I've loaded the games on the server (Mac, etc,.) and ran the search on Wii U after I loaded ROMs in the server for it to appear in my "Recent"--even restarted my (server) and Wii U."


    For [​IMG] (see what I did there.....no...okay[​IMG] ) reference, I totally did not curse you out. You don't even know how bad it gets.

    On the upside, people are willing to help, but meet others halfway; help us help you.

    Well firstly, I don't have a Mac. Secondly, on everything I tried it gets to the ROM selection menu then crashes upon loading a ROM.
    It's not even anything worth me trying to figure out anyway, as the computer that has all my PSP ROMs can barely emulate Corpse Party.

    I'm as interested in solving your problem as you are at this point.

    Well, way to spoil the surprise of my McRib. Now I'll have to bring McNuggies back.

    And just to keep us on topic,

    In my trial of Final Fantasy Tactics, I noticed some slowdown during the prelude to battle scene; no speedups, but, man, that is one loooooong wait--maybe in-game settings for text could help...a little.

    I can create the page if nobody knows how to do it.
    I just need to know how many columns, and their name/purpose, if you want colors, etc.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Just my train fare:
    Preliminary information: does SD card class 10 vs others (UFS 2.0, yada-yada) have an effect on the speed (yeah, yeah) of games, (basically, what I'm getting at is, does it matter--I used a class 4, 2GB SD for my testing and it preforms well; I could use a UFS 2.0, yada-yada, but I want to try with a lower speed, just because).

    Primary: Alphabetical listing of games, (guess it could start with titles volunteers have in their library--and any others could start A-B-C, etc,.) probably just lift the simple text from Gfaqs for titles, maybe get a few volunteers from different FW's, cross-test the initial findings (i.e., Dude A and Dude B run a set of games on FW 5.5.1, report their findings, then, test each others data; Bro A and Bro B do the same cross-testing for the same set of games on FW 5.5.2.

    Secondary information: Wii U FW--probably not an issue. If it can be found as a non-issue, compatibility testing would obviously be easier to categorize and yada-yada.


    TL;DR: Assemble! a team of volunteers on different FW's and a control test of HBL version and PPSSPP versions for a definitive reasoning on which is the "best" setup for ___ game.

    Have an initial requirement for which games have issues VS which games have a "rating" of "playable", without "trickery" and divide that between a different group of people for further testing (card speed, FW, loader version, then add in "trickery".


    I don't know; I've got life problems going on and other shit distracting me--this is 79% of the bare-bones.

    wiiu firmware shouldn't matter (for 5.5.1 or 5.5.2 at least, older firmware should be updated)
    SD card class and cluster size, might have an impact on read speed, I don't know. and it's SD only? no USB supported?
    I suppose the most important information is the emulator version, and if the game+region works with it or not. the SD class could be told in the comment column.

    Earth, bro-dude.
    Maybe for a control test, we should asses what individuals have (SD, ROMs, PPSSPP version) and start with who, how many of us, class 4 VS class 10 SD cards in 32KB, ROMs , etc,.

    I can volunteer on 5.5.1 with a class 4, as well as UFS, both 32KB. PPSSPP is the non-numbered version.

    I mostly have (A,J,S) RPGs, probably 9 -12 titles. Will list later, but definitely list....besides...we need to Assemble! before we get too far ahead--this planing can reduce the workload, greatly.
