Linux or Windows, Tablets to Slimbooks, APU's to GPU's. All tech talk goes here.
@TiberiusBravo87 Bro what, no, I emulated the shit out of the DS back in the day. You just had to click on the ‘touch’ screen components for it to work - better yet, elements of some games that needed a microphone like blowing in warioware worked too. Never had an issue at all!
@destraht We are at the point where they kept using the same RK3326 chipset for too long. The only thing that changes between devices are the case, input, and screens. Now instead of going cheap/effective they are trying to go for higher priced market, the RGB10 Max 2 is the same chipset in a nicer package. This is the interim where they want to catch the market of people wanting to pay higher premium for a nicer emulation handheld experience yet don't have the new faster chipsets out yet.
@destraht Not really worth it. The only way I play those games is a cracked 3DS I own. You get the screen and the capability to play all DS/3DS games in the proper format. Nintendo is wise in this though, the option to properly play their pirated games still requires you to buy their handheld. They just don't make licensing money off of me from their overpriced brand-name games like Zelda and Mario, stuff selling for $40 a cart even if it came out half a decade ago.
@destraht No one realized the Nintendo DS had the bottom touch screen as a primary anti-piracy measure. Very hard to emulate and even harder to control on PC or emulation handhelds. It's generally known that the only DS/3DS games you can play are ones that don't utilize the touch screen. The Wii controllers are the same deal, hard to emulate without matching hardware for the unique input devices. It's a smart anti-piracy measure.
@Antelope I doubt that Gen 1 Steam Deck is powerful enough. Maybe at 30 fps.
The real shame about the Wii U emulator is that it's closed source. That system is I think much more of a sweet spot that a lot of people can run, and without weird game-specific Wiimote button mappings for all of the shaking crap.
Spent my night tinkering around with the Yuzu Switch emulator. I’m actually bloody impressed with how smooth it is.
Running it with Vulkan and I’m getting 60 fps on everything with minor software slow down. A few compatibility issues with some games but there’s a lot here to keep me busy. Throw this on your steam deck.
