Re: Is someone still alive here?

I check the site from time to time. Reading the git logs. I still hope that cen64 becomes a nice and complete software-only N64 emulator. But I know that doing that is hard.

Or one could wait 20 years or so and hope that CPUs in this time can run MAMEs N64 code fast enough :D

Re: Anyone looking to contribute?

And we still have to wait if the Vulkan aproach is any faster that a good multithreaded aproach. Right now paraLLEl has many rendering errors, texture mapping problems and lockups (and it renders only a few games at 60VI/s for me). It is possible that the performance drops down more in later releases.

Re: angrylion RDP plugin almost threaded

For me the git master branch uses 1 and a half core (~130-150% usage). The angrylion-rdp-sse branch uses 2 cores (~200% CPU usage). AVX build, build today.

edit: And I got around 41 VI/s on an 2Ghz i7 (boosts to 3Ghz) in the Funnel Cube Demo.

Can you predict how big the performance hit would be if the missings instructions are implemented?

Well, I use ArchLinux. Don't know if it would help you ;)

Compiling stuff under Windows is pretty annoying because you have to install so much stuff.

Re: New Vulkan LLE graphics plugin for libretro Mupen64Plus

I recorded a test with multiple games and now the performance was not this bad anymore... maybe shadercache or something... But still drops down sometimes and has heavy glitches in some games. When they say Pre-Alpha it is pre-alpha :D https://youtu.be/kH7xqmXC7ZI I noticed that the texture mapping ...

Re: New Vulkan LLE graphics plugin for libretro Mupen64Plus

OK, with reinstalling and downgrading the NVidia driver to 368.69, praLLEl works now. :) But with an i5 3.2 Ghz and a GTX 770 even Super Mario 64 drops down to 40fps. But the rendering seems to be complete.

Re: New Vulkan LLE graphics plugin for libretro Mupen64Plus

Hmm, maybe it is not commited to github but they can run it: https://www.youtube.com/user/Libretro/videos There are a couple of paraLLEl Videos. Looks pretty good. edit: They released it. Sadly RetroArch refuses to start in Win10/GTX770 when I select the Vulkan-Backend. http://www.libretro.com/index...

Re: New Vulkan LLE graphics plugin for libretro Mupen64Plus

OK, tried to test it in Windows 10 with a GTX 770 and recent drivers... RetroArch crashes.

Maybe it is not finished or there are other problems. Thats why I like Software-Only Emulators. Less problems with drivers...

Re: New Vulkan LLE graphics plugin for libretro Mupen64Plus

Would like to test it but the Linux Intel Vulkan Drivers for Haswell are not functional. Even the vkcube Demo only renders a gray window... and RetroArch just crashes. Maybe Kernel 4.7 is needed.

Re: Compatibility on new 2016 builds

Hi, I am new to this forum. I tested some stuff and saw that everything is already reported here :D The missing two (?) opcodes are still a thing I think? I saw that the wings in StarFox64 are nearly black. I have an i7-4750HQ CPU @ 2.00GHz running ArchLinux. I know this CPU will probably never run ...
