    Depends on the amount of people around. :)

    Now - conceptually. People looking for services, will read for a few pages after their service attempt, so you reach them. It might also not scale, because "I have smartphone, give me support" folks usually dont read so much around before asking for what they want.

    But then this is not support, this is just information. So, trying out to have people think through a certain concept logic at least once.

    And then, 'just ignore it' never flies well with me. Its a culture thing. I'd rather be part of something where you dont rely on conversations with instances of unanswered solicitation attempts in between.

    I'd still rather address them. :)

    And if you think of me as a hardliner, I'm not - I've actually answered "does it support game" with testing effort, for this beta psp core in here before. I just know what it takes, and that I certainly wouldnt do it for anyone who asks me to. Its work. For no one else but that person.

    And then again, the idea, that someone would just be sitting on that information, and give it out, because someone asks "does it work?" at just the right moment, even that doesnt make sense. So in essence you are asking for someone to do something you dont want to. Not because you dont know how - but because you dont want to.

    Of course that only becomes clear, if you are the sort of person that reads through the 30 pages of postings in this and other threads, because you then notice, that people usually share the results of their testing, in some form or another because its fun and low effort. If you dont read - the entire thing becomes a "someone, information, me" thing to begin with - and then you've got to tell people, that - if thats what a community becomes, you are incentivising people who dont read over people who read (cant take this same question in every thread for the hundredth time anymore).

    Logic. The base of all arguing. If you care about something, you are open to process logic around it. And people listening to the debate are as well. Thats the enlightenment principle explained. Entirely. ;) Theres nothing more to it. But this isnt the politics subforum.. ;)

    Maybe?

    There are five mentions of Retroarch in the first posting. Could be a hint.

    Hey man, I'm not trying to be an ass or anything, but these long winded rants clog up these threads way better than a few people asking a question

    They are asking for you to do testing that they dont want to do. Thats not a question.

    Thats a support thing.

    Not that difficult to distinguish. If they know how to do it. And the dont do it - they arent asking for information. They are asking for leighbour without compensation. For something that will only benefit them (at least mostly).

    Now 90% of people want to be an ass about it "impulsively" because they dont want to lose the "I have smartphone, I get other people to work for me" line of events, because its so convenient, but that doesnt mean that they are right.

    And if people already are like 'fuck off' about it, and they are still littering threads with it. Then you come in and say that people should shut up and just cope.

    And thats abuse.

    But now with smartphones, they dont even get bored writing notes and requests on them anonymous paperless boards.

    So you've given up on trying to form society through personal interaction.

    Cool. You are not right.

    End of sidelining this thread. Back on topic of soliciting work out of others.

    I know its inconvenient for you to read this, but its still correct to bring it up.

    but the thing is that if everyone thought like you i would have never fixed widescreen in symphony of the night. Thanks to notimp.

    a friend once asked me what was the most important idea to mankind. He said knowledge of self. I said empathy. The reason i gave was without empathy that first caveman discovers fire and what if he doesn't care about other humans? He just goes in his cave. Cooks chicken. It's yummy. He dies. Poof there it goes. Where humans shine is when we come together. When we share. Then you get farms then villages then cities and civilization. A similar thing happens here when people share. Look at the vr thread. One person posted wouldn't it be cool if. Then another said heck with that use this shader. Then another said hey that works! While it is annoying when people are lazy yes. And sometimes no timp is just very verbose. No matter how you cut it knowledge is power.

    Makes no sense man.. did you read what my reply is for?
    Not doing what they ask does not give you knowledge or take any away.

    Lol read your own words not answering does nothing and does not add anything. True some are just being lazy but actual discourse produces results. Just like lurking might enrich you sure. Cause you get something from the discourse of others. But where the knowledge comes from is people participating.

    That is why forums became a thing...

    he did not ask you to do testing for him,he simply asked if a racing game called midnight club 3 works or not,maybe he did not have retroarch setup at all & for him it was worth setting it up if he knew this game works (who knows) !! i had already tested this game so i answered him & was willing to share my settings with him if he had issues running it,even if i didn't test the game i may have tested it just for him !! i honestly have no idea why you are so upset,i like reading your "useful" replies on this forum because you seem to have more knowledge than the average user,i just wish your "useful" replies were as long or as many as your rants ones. :P

    Hi!
    I have a problem with Ape Escape On The Loose (Ape Escape P). When I try to move diagonally, the character walks instead of running, which makes movement very difficult. Does anyone know how to fix it? (I don't have this problem with other psp games [e.g. Daxter] or switch games)

    Sounds what happens to me in secret agent clank.

    Someone suggested turning analog sensitivity up to 1.2, 1.5 or 2.0.

    Heh. The PSP has a massive collection of Homebrew, we haven't even scratched the surface :P Did you have any luck getting more characters or stages added to openmugen? and thanks for the shout out ;)

    Okay, all working A-M-A-Z-I-N-G but just wanted to check if there's any suggestion on some audio stutter on crisis core? It's far from unplayable but it's the only thing that kind of shows when playing, rest is outstanding :D

    So far it looks good, I tried Dracula X Chronicles but I had a problem in the first stage where flashes and can't pickup items, the next scene with his girlfriend is bugged and there's no textures except for the characters. Still looking for future updates tho, great work so far :)
