PSX4ALL Compatibility List
« on: October 16, 2009, 07:43:26 pm »
Posted in the right place!

Hey guys,

I figure to help stop the "Does this game work?" we should start a centralized compatibility list thread.

If the games is good mark it Green.

If it is bad, mark it Red.

If it is playable but not awesome, mark it Blue.

Be sure to post steps you did:
-Name
-Emulator Version (when it updates)
-FPS/Frameskip settings
-Compression/Filetype
-BIOS

I will help when I get Dingux on mine.

edit by mod:

Anybody posting links to roms or romsites will find themselves banned from this point on

I'd say a list is best compiled in the wiki, that way:
1) people are forced to keep proper formatting.
2) all entries will be in organized order.
3) people can easily spot whether or not they're reporting duplicates.

Kind of like this list. Works much better than an x-page long forum thread...
Write/save problems? Segmentation faults? Black screens? Read the Troubleshooting and FAQ guide first to fix your issues! :)
SD Card readonly/corruption issues? Chkdisk /F and steer clear from DMenu: use GMenu instead!

I'd like to once again advertise the bugtracker: http://github.com/uli/psx4all-dingoo/issues

The Castlevania thing, for instance, is quite obvious. It's most likely an add or addi instruction somewhere in the translated code that should have been addu or addiu, respectively, the difference being precisely that the former throw an overflow exception once in a while. This, however, has only come to my attention by coincidence, because I am not usually in the habit of searching through forum threads on the off chance that there might be some valuable information hidden somewhere in the back. (I'm only doing that now to see how people react to this thing I let loose. :))

I'm not asking you to report every rendering glitch in every game (especially since I don't really know much about the PSX graphics hardware anyway), but everything that segfaults, overflows, or otherwise crashes the emulator is worth reporting, and probably not that hard to fix anyway. So please report that stuff on github. There I will see it. Thank you.

Playable a little. Some graphical glitches in the menu and corrupter text in game. I got 'floating point overflow' during first scene (in about 1-2 minutes ingame)

I just played it to the first savepoint using the scph7502.bin bios. There's something fishy with the scph1001.bin IMO. I used the ntsc version of castlevania aswell.

I don't think the FPS reporting is accurate when frameskipping is enabled (or frameskipping slows rendering down quite a bit).For instance FF7 reports 30-40 fps with a 420mhz overclock, but when frameskipping is enabled it reports around 15fps.It honestly feels more like 40fps then 15, it's not that much slower than running the game on a pal console in PAL50 mode, although definitely too slow for my liking.

Also frameskipping doesn't seem to help performance enough to be useful at the moment, just makes the game very choppy, and gives only a handful of extra fps.

And about this bug reports - I am working as Quality Assurance engineer, so I can perfectly describe the problem if community need so :)

Games that work for me:
Crash Bandicoot 3 (.img, slow, looks and plays fine)
Dead or Alive (ripped .cbn, bit slow, graphic bug like in gta menu,plays fine, recommend fs 3/5)
Gran Turismo (ripped .cbn, slow, looks and plays fine)
GTA (ripped .bin, bit slow, looks and plays fine)
Rage Racer (ripped .bin, a bit slow, looks and plays fine)
Ridge Racer (ripped .iso, ~20 fps @ 430mhz, looks and plays fine)
Tekken 2 (ripped .iso, gta menu graphic bug, VERY weird rendering bug, fighters look like octpusses i.e. unplayable, 7 fps @ 430mhz)
Tekken 3 (ripped .iso, slow (17 fps), looooong loading times, looks and plays fine)
Wipeout 2097 (ripped .bin, slow ~20 fps, looks and plays fine)

Games that did not work for me:
Ace Combat 3 (freezes after loading, waited 2 minutes)
Autobahn Raser 2 (crashes when it goes ingame, floating point exception)
Destruction Derby 2 (crashes in menu)
Destruction Derby Raw (segfaults)
Metal Gear Solid VR Missions (crashes before menu)
Resident Evil 2 (crashes when it goes ingame, floating point exception) plays fine with fix
Resident Evil 3 (crashes when it goes ingame, floating point exception)

Most of the time i use 0/1. If i use other settings, the game hangs sometimes, like hickups. Tekken 3 plays great with 2/3 btw. But loading takes ~ 5 minutes.  ;D
Interlacing can bring a nice speedup too, 1 line (accaptable) in Rage Racer got me from ~15 fps to ~17, 3 lines (ugly!) ~20. Might help with ff7 too.
And yes, you have to set the clockspeed again if you reboot dingux.

I need to test those for games I posted again all this time I thought is was overclocked to 430mhz,
Can someone confirm I have to set the cpu speed every time I boot into dingux?
