About 99% decided on GPD XD thanks to you all - one question
« on: September 30, 2015, 12:02:53 am »
So even though I will play mostly SNES and games like Contra and Castlevania, I really want streaming to work with L3/R3 so I'll take a hit on the DPAD unless you guys tell me I'm a fool and should just get the Q9.

My question is:  Since 64GB Class10 SD is literally $17, is there ANY REASON to buy the 32GB internal version of this device?

Bonus question:  Using gamestream, can I play PS2 games via PCSX2?  Sorry if dumbass question.

Thanks to all of your for reading and for giving me plenty to read about this.

1. IMHO, no.

2. No sure. Ask Deenox.

On the edge of buying an XD as well.

Two questions

- Can you turn off the display of the GPD when playing via HDMI?

- How noticeable is the input lag when using a game controller?

99% decided? that's very strange since there have been so much people complaining about this handheld

if you want it really badly maybe you should wait until the next batch comes out before buying one

they are supposed to be fixing some of the problems that are in the 1st batch

about versions. i strong recommend 32GB instead of 16GB. The main reason is that this device cannot do swap of sdcard, then all your android titles will be installed on your device memory.
you can use solutions such mount folder or similar apps, but for easy and simple usage, is better to use the internal memory directly, without tweaking the device.

then, a microSD can contain roms, many roms  for you can use within emlators.

summarizing: let the internal memory for native android stuff (apps, games, etc) and microSD for emulation stuff

about gamestreaming, shure you can play PS2 titles. All you need is a powerful PC for running the emulator, and a solution for streaming (Nvidia GTX for moonlight streming, or try other solutions such kainy, etc, etc...), a good wifi connection and you're done.

my suggestion. Currently, i?m getting better results with another PLC on my home. i use one PLC with Wifi for connecting my console, and get better video quality and response than connecting directly to my Wifi (that many times lack of strenght when i'm on some points on my home)

then, my suggestion is: buy a PLC for streaming stuff. Plug a PLC near your router (for connecting via ethernet cable), and the other plc can create a Wifi AP, that will be used for your device (GPD-XD) for connecting to your local net and stream from your gaming pc.

Greetings!

Are there so many people complaining? Not my impression, I am pretty satisfied with it. It's a 150 ? handheld, I didn't expected to get something with the built quality of a new 3DS and the tech specs of Shield handheld.

Regarding to streaming, I only tried streaming via Moonlight, this uses the Protocol Nvidia developed for the Shield streaming. It's very lag free, but requires a Geforce card and let you only start games that the Geforce experience recognises or games from your Steam client. You can shortcut programs into your Steam client, so I think it should be possible to run PCSX2 from there, but I am not sure.

Can anyone tell me if you can you turn off the display of the GPD when using HDMI?

All the vids i've seen are always a dual display.

really, most people i comment about this device is satisfied. The thread you found on some webs are related to first batch most of cases.

the really is that most people (more than 90%, for telling something) is really happy with this. The feeling that people complains by the device, are based only on some thread you can read.

take note. if a device is good, usually people don?t create thread for telling what good is. but for few guys with bad feeling (defective unit, etc), will open one thread by each one, and may generate a incorrect feeling that the device is worse than better.

in my oppinion, this device is under NVidia shield, in my personal ranking.

Thanks fellow nerds. This thread seems it would answer my questions regarding ps2 streaming being recognized by geforce, and that would potentially imply that dolphin also would work. 🐬

Thanks for the tip on moonlight. That's just what I needed to avoid buying a dumb shield. I have a gaming PC (970 sli, 6600k @ 4.5) and it looks like I can get the full GFE experience without a crummy shield. Awesome guys.

Great discussion as always on this board. So really as overpriced as 20 is for 16gb flash, I know the pains about internal vs. external memory on Android devices. You really can't "move to SD card" even rooted with the SD fix? Lame.

You may even want to wait for the 64GB version, though I couldn't wait... I expect some future firmware or a custom firmware will allow moving to SD card.

For the mean time I am going to use Internal Storage for everything Android then store all my ROMs on my 64GB microSD card.
Turn off your Android games console when you are finished with it!

Thanks Deen0X.  I understand what you're saying, but my tiny pathetic apartment doesn't have strength issues :) :)

I'm about to pull the trigger!

You can shortcut programs into your Steam client, so I think it should be possible to run PCSX2 from there, but I am not sure.

I tried it now, it works flawless. I put a shortcut of PCSX2 into my Steam and was able to launch it from Moonlight. You can access all menus via the mouse emulation of the touchscreen and after mapping the buttons from within PCSX2 to my GPD XP I was able to play a round of Ico without any noticable lag.

EDIT: Just saw other people had already success with a different streaming software. :)
