    i have retorarch PSX installed on my N3ds Emunand max updated and i noticed that with each update it is making the emulator worse and worse... there was a time where i was able to kinda play crash bash at about 45 fps and now its playing at 14-17 fps!? idk what but is mt bios file required? and does the variant of bios file matter? dose not using a bios enable HLE or no boot?

    In opinion, what's better, experimental or stable.
    I'm usually a guy who loves bleeding edge beta stuff.
    Hell I installed Windows 10as primary OS in the beta if that's not risky idk what is lol.
    But if the stable is really better I'll just use it.

    PSX emulator probably is still in heavy works so they are probably trying to be more accurate (to handle more games, less bugs etc) at a cost of framerate.

    Later in developement when they will include most of things if not all they will switch to optimization.

    Still i wouldn't count on full speed PSX emulation even at late stage.

    Well guess I got to try it out. I heard you can boost performance by cutting sound. I could play without sound

    You say that now, but man I hate playing FFT, RE2, and FF7 with no sound, it's rough. And to be honest, with the 1.3 stable build I get 50ish frames mostly with sound on FF7 so I ain't complaining.

    The stable installation did no good. Still slow. Btw where do I get the stock settings file for the root folder?

    Just deleting retroarch's .cfg file in the retroarch folder will restore settings to default.
    This always helped me when my speed suddenly dropped.
