Alright so I know there's already a bunch of reviews and impressions so I just wanna add a few titles (gamecube pcsx2) I've played that run great.
First off I have experienced no crashes *knockonwood
The only nonemulator games I've played is The Godfather, NBA Live 2004, 06 and Midnight Club 2.
Installing to that USB fit is a nightmare - the thing overheats badly, so I've only installed quick installable games to it so it won't overheat and malfunction. I use the USB mainly for Roms and the Microsd for games.
I plan to still install and run: FIFA 14, Mafia 2, Borderlands, CodWaW, Firewatch, Gears 1, Gun, Splinter Cell, and NBA 2k12
I know most of the games I like are old and not very popular.
Lastly before I post game's FPS I would really love to see a thread dedicated to Performance tweaks and speed ups that can be used for games I know a lots been posted in that other thread and it's extremely cluttered. I'm not very experienced with emulators so if there's any advice to get these to run better PLEASE feel free to let me know I would love to have some performance increases.
I haven't tweaked BIOS at all so IDK if that would make a difference. I fully believe my results are worse than others definitely worse than GPDWinGamer with his beelink. I will retry any of these games after some tweaks if anyone has any ideas. I'm using the OpenGL as my graphics driver, I tried dx11 and 12 and had slightly worse or the same fps.
Gamecube Games on Dolphin 5.0:
007 James Bond Agent Under Fire (PAL)= Not Playable (20-60fps with 20-100%, game works great when no people are visable, as soon as enemies pop up game drops to around 20-30 and is slow motion like 50%)
Burnout 2 (NTSC) = Playable (perfect speed runs great no problems)
NBA Street (PAL) = Playable (about 48fps with 80-100% it's not bad, definitely slower than perfect play but I can get through a game np)
Smuggler's Run Warzones (PAL) = Playable (not great fps and speed but it's definitely playable, a little slow at times but I plan to get through the whole campaign)
Luigi's Mansion (NTSC) = Playable as you have probably seen on youtube 30fps with 100% speed)
Mario Golf (PAL)= Playable (not bad about 45fps with 75% speed. I can play a round)
Mario Tennis (PAL) = not playable slow 30fps with 70% speed
Mario Baseball (PAL)= not playable (same as tennis) and crashed dolphin when starting a game
Mario Soccer (PAL)= very playable no problems (as seen on youtube)
Wario World (PAL) = playable (not bad about 45fps with 80% speed)
PS2 games on PSCX 1.4
