Picodrive Slowdown
« on: March 04, 2013, 08:29:45 pm »
Hello,

I have recently installed the Alien Grey CFW on my a380 and I couldn't have asked for anything more :)

The only problem I have is that when playing games on picodrive after about 2 minutes the game slows down to 1fps and becomes unplayable. The only workaround I found was to open the emu menu then close it and its fine for another 2 minutes.

I had a look on google and there was 1 thread under the dingux section about it. Someone said they fixed it by doing "mount -o remount,noatime,nodiratime /boot and renice in the /boot/local/sbin/main" which I have absolutely no idea what that is.

Anyone else have this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

This is a known problem, I couldn't fix it because I was unable to reproduce this behavior on rzx50 (which has similar firmware to a380). You can turn on manual framskip to 1 as a temporal solution.

Or use Sound Frequency 16000 with frameskip Auto for SEGA Mega Drive and Sound Frequency 22050 with frameskip 1 for SEGA CD.

just a bit of tweaking and it's an amazing emulator,
well better than recent cartridge genesis handhelds with cart port but bad sound
