Ways to improve speeds on Native Emulators
« on: March 27, 2011, 07:56:56 pm »
Hi sorry if this has been asked over and over.

But what settings in each Emulator do you reconmend to get better performance. I.e in game settings such as frame skip etc.

The main ones in question is getting SMD, SNES, CPS2 and Neo Geo MVS to run better than they do at default.

As for me they dont seem that fast at all, infact seems some now run choppy where as they never quite before?

Leave it on auto frameskip and overclock.

Don't know why you'd be using the native SMD emulator.

There is an updated MD emu that works just fine.

For SNES use PocketSNES 2.1. It's great and lets you overclock directly from the application.

For CPS2 and MVS I leave them at their default settings and simply overclock to around 410Mhz. You will get near full speed in simple games, and acceptable speeds in the more intensive games.

Cheers what way of Overclocking do you reconmend, i heard some firmware has a OC option for Native.

The SMD is the Fixed one as the Original the screen had bad distortion effect, the new one does not but does have some minor tearing but most wont notice, its only because i am a fussy so and so.

As for my speeds it seems to be they play fine a bit but every now and again slow down for a few frames, mainly with horizontal scrolling games

Just use the sml overclock application (except for PocketSNES, or any other that has it's own overclock option). You can over or under clock to anything you want. If you really want the most speed try overclocking to 430~470. Most people are comfortable with overclocking to 420~430 if need be. You probably don't want to run it so hot for very very long sessions though.

The limit depends on the individual dingoo. Some people can't even get their dingoo to 400mhz. I can overclock mine to 460~470 with out it wigging out or freezing immediately. I've only ran it that high for like 10 minutes at a time though. And only a few times. I think I was able to get like 7~10 more FPS out of SNES9x4D (Dingux) on Mega Man X2 at 465mhz, compared to 430mhz. :P
