I assume you're talking about running FF9 in OpenGL. First off - I agree with you on The fact that schtruck, the dev, has not been forthcoming with information about opengl. He should explain it better - there are too many settings. I was bothered by that for a long time, and finally decided to do something about it. I created an extened post that explains everything that I could undrestand, and then goes further to try to explain how to use opengl on the different hardware platforms. If you want information - go look at that post (see my signatrure for the link). OpenGL, even on the best android tablets and phones, is not perfectly smooth, and some graphics don't work (e.g. battle swirl). On 'good' phones it runs decent, but still requires frameskip which makes it unsmooth.
If you knew anything about the history of emulation, you would know it was a long, arduous process. When hardware got good enough that everthing could be done in software, things got easier. Hardware acceleration still allows for much better graphics for 3D, but is still much less compatible and has issues. That's the current reality of emulating psx games on phones. If you can make it better - jump into the coding and help.
Have you been around for the last month? And the 12 - TWELVE - updates the dev has been pushed out? How can you say the dev isn't doing anything, besides self centered ignorance?
The dev has just released a 3rd rendering engine for psx. Old software, new software, and of course opengl. The new software engine, opengl es 2.0, renderes just like the old software engine, but with bilinear filtering (which usually kills performance), and it runs FASTER and MORE STABLE than the old software version.
As for sound, there was a major issue with sound, and it's been fixed. The sound is still not 100%, but the dev continues to work to make things constantly better.
I recommend you use the latest version, with the new software mode - opengl es 2. It should run about as fast as your hardware (and current android ROM you are using with it) will allow.
Well, firstly, thank you for calling a customer of this product offensive, ignorant and self-centred, that was nice. Oh, and then agreeing with me. Of course I'm talking about running it in OpenGL. I said thank God for your post! Therefore I had obviously used all the settings given, yet am still experiencing gaps between each and every camera angle.
I don't know anything about the history of emulation, I don't want to. I don't care how many updates the eronious dev has kicked out, the fact remains, he is not here, helping people with a product that he is getting paid money for by every user that installs it. Whether you think it self-centred or not, as a customer of a product, I DO want everything on a plate!! That is my right as a customer!! If a product is going to advertise itself as a Playstation Emulator, then that is what it should do, without ANY glitches, regardless of the "history of emulation," full stop! If it doesn't work, then say so at the store. Call it "Partially Working Playstation Emulator," because THAT is what it is, UNTIL it plays EVERY PSOne game, automatically, out of the box.
OK, thanks to the next poster explaining about emulation, fine, I get it. But the above point still applies! If it doesn't fully work yet, IT SHOULD SAY SO BEFORE YOU SPEND MONEY ON IT, dubious at all whether they should be charging money for it at all, AT THIS STAGE.
I asked for help, nothing wrong with that on a support forum. So, nothing can be done about these gaps then? Please don't hesitate to respond with the History of the Microchip, or a lesson in Electronics...!
