Title: PLAYSTATION AND N64 Emulators on the GCW ZERO?
Post by: dongo on October 25, 2015, 03:32:06 am
Hello Everyone,

I know other threads from years ago have said that it's not happening.   :( :'(

I was wondering if anyone has heard of any changes or releases that work for playstation 1 and N64 emulation?

The screen resolution and hardware are more than capable of running those games. 

Also if you have it can you point me to where I can get a working playstation or N64 emulator? 

That is really all this hand held is missing.  I would love to play mega man 64 on it as I did with my JXD which was less powerful. 

I have seen very recent videos on youtube running N64 and playstation games but no explanation of how they did it. 

Thanks.   8)

Not to be rude or anything, but there's a large thread three down from this one about n64 emulation. PS1 emulation IS happening, gameblabla is making a port of mednafen, which includes PS1. It is the second thread under GCW-zero development

not be rude but it does not answer the question.  It simply dances around it.  sorry.

N64: No. Plenty of reasons in plenty of threads.
PS1: Probably yes. Keep an eye on mednafen. However you can't force it. Furthermore it is not possible to give a timetable.

not asking for a time table.  Ive seen recent playable emulators in vids.  There is clearly a working PS and N64 emulator out there.  That is what I am asking for.  I don't care if it's not 100%

The video showing N64 emulation was given as a counter example. You can recompile upstream Mupen64Plus and run games using the interpreter. It is not playable in its current state and the expectation is that it won't become much faster either.

Is PSX Emu a PS emulator?  If so how can I get it?  I have been looking around but can not find any OPK files for a PS emulator.

All I see there is PSX4ALL.  That wont launch the games.  I have tried.  I have the bios files but it does not seem to find them.  Do you know where I can find working bios's and where to install them?  I put them in the psx4all folder and its not working.  it tries to launch and crashes immediately.

 As I've spoken to other people about this in other threads regarding the same question about Nintendo 64, praise the heavens and the creator of whomever actually gets it to work/if they get something to work. "IF" being the keyword. Right now the closest thing they've got to work is running Nintendo 64 at 30% speed. @zear himself specified that any work further from here would take at least a year of extremely knowledgeable programmers spending 40 hours full-time a week to do so,  with a huge possibility at the end of that year......programmers saying, sorry we still couldn't get it past 30% speed.
 Dude, I was so dedicated to getting Nintendo 64 to work, that I even started a thread asking if I could somehow upgrade the hardware or CPU in order to get it to do what I want. Ha ha! What a dumbass, right?

 So, keep your fingers crossed and maybe one day it'll happen. However, don't buy a zero for those reasons. I'm trying to come to terms with this myself.
 As long as we can at least get the TV out/HDMI feature working ;)

Is an emulator worth buying?  This thing is garbage.  The devs need to work on rolling things out.  If its run solely by the community it is going to fail hard!  Its been out for years this should have happened already.  The hardware is more than capable.

If it doesn't do what you want then sell it and buy something else. There's not much point in lamenting missing features when the people who are doing the actual coding are unpaid and working in their spare time.

Sometimes community projects like this can really work, the key factor is getting people interested in it and unfortunately for the Zero that hasn't really happened, hence the small community and slow progress. It is what it is, if you need the missing features then just buy something else while the Zero still has resale value.

It hasnt happened due to bad marketing.  They showcase the ability to play PS1 and N64 games but clearly can not.  And they allow those videos to also propagate on youtube as well.

I do have a much better device with more capabilities.  I prefer my JXD when it comes to play ability.    the GCW is great but its lagging way behind the times on development.

The only games and emulators promoted to work are listed at the downloads (http://www.gcw-zero.com/downloads) section of the GCW Zero website. We have stringent checks (http://wiki.gcw-zero.com/Software_Porting_Guidelines) to make sure applications pass our requirements to be listed. There is no way to control what resellers use to promote the hardware. The community is not required to offer support for work in progress releases found on the forums. As stated previously, the N64 video was used to counter expectations of having a working emulator anytime soon. The PSX4ALL emulator has never been officially released, and was only intended to be shared between developers as a proof of concept.

Well that is a horrible counter for that, also probably should have guidelines for retailers.  I mean everyone else does it's pretty important and will stop lawsuits over false advertising against the company.  Also most of the videos I have seen have flawlessly working N64 emulators with no lag what so ever.  So at least for some games it is entirely possible to run them fully.  Probably something you guys should be pursuing.

It's not really down to marketing, most of the people who you would want developing for it know full well what the Zero is and have already been contacted, they just aren't interested. Probably the biggest reasons it hasn't attracted the developers people were hoping for is the small user base and the fact it uses MIPS instruction set, so it's a lot of work to cater for a small group.

N64 has never been "showcased" btw, there is a video floating around showing the Zero failing badly at running the more simple N64 games, not sure why that would be considered an advert for it being able to acheive usable N64 emulation when in fact it shows the opposite.

You can search youtube for that.  Tons of them on there so it running flawlessly or for certain games with just a tiny bit of lag for the larger games.

There's none I'm aware of. There are videos showcasing the underdeveloped PSX emulator and that's it. The GCW Zero is a device that aims at the market niche of retro gaming (16bit or less) and enthusiasts such as small time developers. It delivers on that and does that quite well.

The software is all handled by community voluntaries that are giving their free time to build something neat out of their effort. You're talking about videos from random people on the internet showcasing what they found cool and interesting, or videos testing wether its feaseable or not.

BTW I've did a couple of hacks, compiled and packaged some old PSX emulator for the dingoo and then released it for the GCW Zero in the form of the emulator that you've seen around youtube. It's very far from "running perfectly with some lag". Some games run decently and some others are pure trash. I've said time and time again that I compiled it solely to see if I could play a little bit of Klonoa.

If you're feeling the device is not living up to your expectations, it's your fault for not doing proper research. Every single community member involved on it are available on IRC and are fairly active there as stated multiple times already.

All of this could've been dodged by showing up on IRC and shooting away a few questions, we tend to be a friendly bunch mind you.

There are tons of YT videos of the Zero running N64 flawlessly? I couldn't find a single one so maybe you could link me to one.

Everything you just stated above is what marketing is for and about.  You will not get those people without marketing properly. 

That's not how homebrew/emulation scenes work at all. It doesn't matter how much you "market" the device, the same scene coders you are looking to entice would have exactly the same amount of interest. Maybe if it had been ARM based then you would already be running everything up to Dreamcast on it, who knows. You just have to accept that the Zero has a limited appeal and that no amount of exposure and promotion will make everyone suddenly think it's the best thing in the world.

It's a niche within a niche, that makes it a hard sell even to emulation enthusiasts and all things considered I think it did well to generate a lot of hype especially around the Kickstarter.

 There was an updated post only three days ago on the original kick starter page by Justin Barwick himself saying, he's got a guy working on the HDMI/TV out features as well as they are working on 3-D printing/testing new  D pads and buttons for future upgraded units solving the sticky button issue! So things are definitely in the works! It's really only Nintendo 64 emulation I wouldn't count on :) ( or at least anytime soon )
Hope this helps!

He's right though, other then zear's video showing how Nintendo 64 emulation only runs at about 30% speed, I haven't found any other YouTube videos showing full speed Nintendo 64 emulation. Id
 Also love a link to one of these videos

So.. as @lemmywinks said so perfectly ," links? "

dongo,

PS1 is possible, but is difficult to set up on the Zero.  And it's not 100% functional. 

N64 -- never seen it working. 

Youtube -- links or it didn't happen.  Saying "oh just search for it" is not backing up your argument.  You look bad doing this. 

Also, something else to keep in mind -- the people who make these emulators do so of their own free will.  They don't get paid.  Yelling at them about how bad this sucks drives them away -- so thank you for being part of the problem, rather than the solution.  Maybe if the community stopped crying and started enjoying the 20 emulators the device already has, we'd have more devs working for us. 

So, devs -- thank you for the work you do once again.  I'm going to go play SNES on my Zero now.

Searching N64 on the GCW ZERO in youtube it has found over 18 pages of results.  Almost the first 8 or 9 pages are full of emulation videos.  I'm not sure where you are searching but inside of youtube they are there.  I have been researching this for a week.

Thats because it was the first time using that emulator doesn't mean I havent looked at things or educated myself.  Dude its called google and youtube.  use them the vids are out there and in fact are the first results for 8 pages.

I seriously don't think GCW Zero can handle a decent nintendo64 emulation, even with a amazing work of a dev. Snes emulation is limited to snes9x 1.43 instead of 1.53 due to speed issues, so I cannot imagine that it can handle it. But to be honest, I don't think it's the purpose of this device. I think most of us bought it to play 8/16 bit emulators and some arcades. For nintendo64 there are other options (I use Android handhelds mainly), so if you bought GCW Zero looking for nintendo64, then you made a bad purchase.

Also, as other people mention, devs deserve all credit, they do it for free and in their spare times, so they cannot be blamed.

P.D; I don't find those youtube videos either.

 Hey sincerely, this is way too much drama. Unless you're using the darknet, or work for the US government and know something that we don't, that exists on a YouTube page that doesn't actually exist to the public eye (he said sarcastically), then please stop responding with drama leading nowhere as opposed to links with actual proof. Thank you

 Also keep in mind, we have all searched and searched and searched and searched, recently and thoroughly...and still nothing, we have come up with nothing. As far as videos go.
However, As far as the numerous amount of threads?  There are countless references on this forum stating in many different ways how the Nintendo 64 emulation was either canceled and/or doesn't exist yet. AND why it doesn't exist.
 I've also spoken to a programmer who stated, that if somebody is actually working on this emulation they would not at all show/tell many people most likely until it were usable and smoothed out. so if something ever does end up  being ported to the zero in regards to Nintendo 64 emulation, praise the heavens and kiss the man's feet whom did it.
Also,
 read the last moderator's post in this thread...
http://boards.dingoonity.org/gcw-zero-emulation/n64-emulator/30/

 All I'm saying is, please stop stirring the pot for no reason.  We ALL want Nintendo 64 emulation on the zero. Badly.
There are a lot of helpful people on here who are trying to make the zero as amazing as possible. And I for one,  Am very thankful as to what it does currently.
However, as much as I would love to see Nintendo 64 and the TV out/HDMI, it's still a very great device without.
 And as far as I know, the HDMI/TV out is actually still happening for sure. On the original kick starter page, as I mentioned earlier, Justin Barwick himself stated that only three days ago he's got a guy focusing on that as well as the  USB OTG :) 😁👍👍👍

Quickman -- AMEN.  It will be nice when they get those features ready. 

Dongo -- Since you keep lying, here's what I find:

https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=GCW+Zero+N64
First Video - "GCW Zero Update: MAME, Final Burn Alpha, and More!"
  ---> Gee, everything BUT an N64 emulator being showed off on a Zero, as far as I can tell.
Second Video - "Original Archos Gamepad and Emulator Retro Games Review - Compared with the GCW Zero"
  ----> Again, no mention in the description of N64.  Maybe the Archos Gamepad can run it, and that's why this came up?
Third Video - "GCW Zero Handheld Review (Gameplay & Final Thoughts)"
  -----> See a trend?  No N64 mention in the text!
Fourth Video - "GCW Zero - Challenge Accepted! (11) Star Fox... um, maybe"
  ------> If only they mentioned Star Fox 64, then this would be about N64 emulation on the Zero
Fifth Video - "GCW Zero Handheld Review - Retro Game Emulation - SNES, Genesis, Gameboy, NES"
 ------> Again, everything BUT an N64 emulator running on a Zero. 


Post a link, or you are full of it.  N64 emulation has been done on other platforms, but it is a near impossibility on this one.  Stop the drama, please.

From what I read, the GCW zero team attempted to port Mupen64, but here are a couple of threads I found on people discussing the port of DaedalusX64 for the GCW0. Seems like it could have happened if there were more people interested. So sad.  Who knows, maybe someone is privately working by themselves on this project. We can only hope.

 Also the video that Zear posted showing the slower Nintendo 64 animation, I couldn't help but think the whole time: "wow, still looks pretty amazing though. Dammit.."
 I'd hate to ask the moderator on this one, but in order to slow down the drama and maybe put some heads to rest,

Dearest @zear , would DaedalusX64 have been the exact same situation as the Gcw zero's attempt at Mupen?

And sorry to bug you.  I just didn't want to see another thread get locked because of unfinished business or drama. You're the best

DaedalusX64 wasn't viable due to their MIPS port being PSP-specific, shortcuts/hacks, low accuracy and simply not being maintainable.

Ah,  gotcha.  Thank you.
 I guess cutting corners doesn't always pay off.
 Appreciate the reply! 
Maybe someone should let everyone know what you just said in those thread links that I posted ha ha

@Surkow  so then I guess Mupen64 was the way to go, but it only ran at 30% speed, and any work further would take extreme hard work for a very long time with the possibility of still running at 30% speed.

 I won't post an emoticon, but I'm frowning very much right now

Lame...booooo!....hissss!!!

I think this Dongo guy is what we all dread on a community supported project like this. I also own a Pandora and I have guys like this trolling on their forum on the daily as well...So you are complaining and yelling that something must be done quicker and you want reults. Well, how about you pick up a book and do the coding and programming yourself since im sure 99% of the guys that already did porting did it FOR FREE and spent THEIR own time doing so. The GCW will not loss support as this page is always active. What you should have done, is more research before you bought one. its as simple as that. My PSX emulator works quite fine.
The fact that you asked us where to put the BIOS file and then where to find one shows you may not know about emulators like you think you do as this is a 5th grade question in this community... But then again, You are carrying yourself as a 5th grader on this board. regardless, Instead of complaining and sounding like a little brat, you should THANK the devs and ZEAR and ZIZ in particular for still being so active here and porting games over. the GCW has come a long way, (I got mine on kickstarter) and have been playing it ever since. Also, im still waiting for the n64 links. Shouldn't be that hard to press ctrl button and copy and paste the info here  8) 8) 8)
