    Well color me surprised, I didn't think we'd see any more improvements in PS1 emulation on the 3DS.

    Yeah, this is the advancement we were waiting on. I guess this will be avaiable in the next nightly? In so far i'm using an unnoficial build and seems promising, but i want to test the official one

    from libretro.com:
    "Try it out today: the updated core is currently available in the latest nightly versions, and will ship with the next RetroArch release."

    Anyone know how to get it to work? constantly getting an ARM11 exception when trying to boot the game. If you need the error dump, let me know.

    Sorry por the double post but got a crash while playing Symphony of the Night, right at the moment Dracula's sprite started to morph in the prologue battle

    I wasn't using stock setting though. I set the resolution on Integral scale 1x and disabled bilineal filtering.

    What are some games that run in fullspeed? Spyro 2 only gets 20 FPS :( Well, I'll just use my Switch I guess...

    We can't expect all games to run at 60 fps like that. This is a huge advancement, now we just need to wait for optimizations

    I've been able to get spyro 2 Eu Pal to play at 50fps with the right settings:
    Pal bios
    Vsync off
    Audiosync on
    Bilinear filtering off(not sure if necessary)
    Lighting off (under advanced settings when running games under options)
    Interpolation off
    Reverb off (not sure if necessary)
    Rom converted to .pbp/.chd from .bin .cue <- Very important step!
    Please do test it. I would be interested in seeing how the old 3ds fares. Go for the 2d games so Rayman, Bomberman World, Metal Slug, Rapid Reload etc..

    Actually I guess I could test with the n3ds set to 3ds clocks... Hmm...
    Apparently not. Retroarch changes back to n3ds clock speeds.
    I did just test Parasite Eve and it runs amazingly well. I'd almost think that you could run it on an o3ds with the right settings too.
