Hey there,

is it normal that Retroarch GPSP crashes the whole N3DS when trying to use cheat files? I load the CHT, then I see some cryptic letters (not the least looking like the cheat file) and when exiting the Quickmenu, the N3DS freezes and then force reboots.

Also Superstar Saga freezes quite a lot. Is that normal?

On my O3DS it tends to freeze or crash every fifteen minutes or so. It might actually be normal. What firmware or you running, version of GPSP, and are you using 3ds/cia/3dsx version.

Use mGba (not the retroarch one) for that! It works 98% for Superstar Saga! For cheats though? I can't help with that :/

you're probably better off using some program to put a cheats trainer in the gba game itself and injecting it into a GBA VC .cia and using the 3ds's AGB_FIRM mode loader to play GBA games natively. i tried cheats myself on retroarch gpsp and got the same thing. either a format for cheat files eludes us or it isn't quite developed or implemented yet. i'd imagine dynarec on retroarch gpsp could help the speed catch up to the AGB_firm GBA loader and that it could be possible to have cheats for GBA games. maybe it takes cheat files made for gPSP like on the GBA emulator for the PSP it was ported from. i guess ask the retroarch devs or retroarch support?

Well, turns out every gpsp derived emulator does not like superstar saga. There's no way to make it work. Mgba retroarch runs it abysmally, it's slow and buggy. I decided to inject it into VC and play it that way, kinda miss the standby function there but I think I can live with it. :D

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
