Captain Morgan's compatibility results

It looks like Captain Morgan has put a lot of effort into doing compatibility testing with Daedalus R6. Thanks Cap'n! (thanks for your email too - I promise I'll get back to you just as soon as sort this issue out!)

[Update]

Don't miss Wally*Won_Kenobie's R6 compatibility list, which is also excellent. Wally has been collecting missing_mux.txt files for me too, for which I am indebted :)

Mario Kart God said...

Yeah keep up the awesome work!

AWOSOME WORK MORGAN
i still dont understand how Mario kart god can play mario kart 64 long enough to even beat the First Race mine always freezes.

GeEkPiE said...

well it doesnt freeze for me, it must be something to do with luck on the psp you have, and no i dont mean fwX.X

Urkel said...

no it usually means that your dump of the game isnt perfect

Morgan said...

It's also his settings, I think he has the expansion pack on. Doesn't work for me but I haven't gotten any screens yet so I don't know. Guys for some reason I think PSPUpdates didn't get my new build so I'll try them again because there's no new article about my Compatability List.

Mario Kart God said...

Morgan I just emailed you the pictures of me playing in the first cup of Mario. I sent it to your yahoo email address and your AOL email address.

arm1nius said...

if you turn off the dynaric mario kart will play the whole mushroom cup

salomon st said...

people r smart i mean n64 on a psp thats crazy if you think about it this is the homebrew that i think will be the best ever made i just cant see n e thing beating this people r smart they have already decrypted 2.8 i think it is amazing what people like strmnnrmn can do with a keyboard

kekpsp said...

Yes, Salomon, we have Devhook emulating 2.xx we have amazing homebrew like Daedalus, we have dedicated guys like Morgan and Wally, this is indeed a great community which I am proud to be a part of, just imagine what will be achieved when the PSP camera and GPS unit become available and more firmware features are unlocked :)

RyanMWolfe said...

can someone please help me i cant get the new R6 to work any better then the R5 it just freezes 5-10 mins into the Game just like the R5 i might redownload it and see if that works.

RyanMWolfe said...

i Might have copy and pasted my roms into the Daedalus Roms Folder.

RyanMWolfe said...

I Still haven't found out why my PSP WOnt let me play Daedalus For More then 5-10 min. i am hoping that the R7 will fix this completely and anyway i wish it would work for me if it really is just luck then R7 will not help me at all will it :( :( :( :(.

The_PSP_Playa said...

Where can i get roms for this?

Mario Kart God said...

Am I allowed at this site to tell where to get roms???

RyanMWolfe said...

Freeroms.com

Mario Kart God said...

That's where I downloaded Mario Kart.

Morgan said...

The reason you have to have the dynarec off is because it's not complete and there's some issues still with it. So that's the reason some games work better with it on and off. In R7 StrmnNrmn should have most of those problems solved, so we'll be pretty good when R7 comes out!

RyanMWolfe said...

hey StrnNrm i have figured out that yu could make a lot of Speed imrovements by making the Processor run 333mhz and we can put our PSP in 333Mhz. and todah you have a better emulator.

Ps i dont know what i am talking about.

Mario Kart God said...

WHEN IS R7COMING OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry, I just want it so badly!

Morgan said...

Calm down mario kart god, just think for a second of a like 20fps mario kart on the psp. I'm sure StrmnNrmn will wetten our appetites soon.

Mario Kart God said...

I hope it's soon! But I keep imagining me playing 25 fps in Mario Kart. I think this is how it will all turn out for Mario Kart though: R7=18-21 fps, R8=22-26 fps, R9=27-30 fps

StevIEmw said...

mario kart god = impatient + imature. JSUT FUKIN WAIT TILL HE RELEASES IT

Mario Kart God said...

Sorry guys. I was having a moment of being stupid.

Morgan said...

Hey calm down everyone, he's just anxious. No name calling it's pointless it ends the same way every time. Just everyone chill and wait for PSPUpdates to finish making they're new article about my updated compatability list. I had to squeeze that in there, but Mario Kart God who knows if that's how the speeds will go. But I doubt it since StrmnNrmn most likely won't be working on speed in R8. I say compatability or stability for R8.

Mario Kart God said...

But I think even if StrmnNrmn is working on Compatibility and Stability in R8 he will still make it go a couple frames faster since he always finds bugs to kill along the way. Even if there really small.

StevIEmw said...

the last thing strmnrm wants to hear is little people perstering him about when his release is going to be out. just give him space and time, remember this is an emulator for us, he will release it when he feels it will benifit us the most

Mario Kart God said...

I am sorry, I just got to anxious.

Mario Kart God said...

BTW any updates StrmnNrmn? Did you kill that pesky bug?

Morgan said...

Good point Mario Kart God (about what you said to my last comment). But yeah guys just stay calm and R7 will be here when it gets here, StrmnNrmn somehow finds a way to work on this project in his spare time. So I mean you have to look at this through his eyes, if your doing something for free on your time you wouldn't want people breathing down your neck asking constantly "where is it, when's it comming out!". Hope that makes sense, I don't know what PSPUpdates is doing guys, it's like my tips I sent them aren't getting through or something. Expect to see an article soon, hopefully.

RyanMWolfe said...

I just hope R7 will be out before i go to the Beach (6 Hour Dirve) i need something to do. /August 17 2006. before then Please StrnNrm

Morgan said...

I don't think you have to worry about it, R7 should be out before then. If it isn't I would be greatly surprised.

Mario Kart God said...

I go back to school as a Juniour August 12. It would be awesome when I could play it on the train. If its out before then that would be awesome!

* Updated file! Just a quick fix to the Mario Kart section, special thanks to Mario Kart God *

Mario Kart God said...

Cool, awesome job Morgan!

Morgan said...

Thanks, I'm going to work now be back in 6 hours, hopefully then pspupdates qill have an article for me to read about my latest build.

Mario Kart God said...

Or maybe by the time you get back StrmnNrmn will have posted some good news.

Mario Kart God said...

No updates today StrmnNrmn?

salomon st said...

no updates is a good thing that means he is fixing something

tsurumaru said...

Right,

Everyone who posted links to romsites delete your posts please. Otherwise Strmnnrmn will delete them for you. Rom usage is a grey legal area and you shouldn't be using a Rom that you don't have the original for.
If people really want to risk the legal issues involved then that is their choice don't get strmnnrmn involved.
I personally think that if someone looking for roms can't figure out how to use Google to source roms then they shouldn't be using an emulator at all.

Secondly stop posting asking when the next release will be out! Its like a 9 year old's birthday party.

Thirdly stop over hyping things, I know its hard not to get excited but you will only end up disappointed. Need I remind you that a 30% speed increase of a game running at 6 fps is only approx an extra 2 fps. If we get any better then you can be happily suprised.

Lastly if Strmnnrmn is answering your comments he cannot be working on Daedalus! Let him work his coding magic, he can't tell you how long it will take him to resolve the problem for example if he does not yet know exactly what is causing it! He will post when he has something to update us with.

Thanks.

Morgan said...

Guys I'm back from work and I released my latest build on Qj's forums so if they don't make an article about my latest build tonight I will be simply pissed off. Anyway I'm going to go drinkin with some friends I'm out!

Mario Kart God said...

k, seya morgan. I'm gonna go to sleep.

wally*won_kenobie said...

This is where a Dcemu forum comes in handy for strmnnrmn :)

The moderators can shoot the posts :)

BTW i have updated my list

http://www.dosgames.com/~wally4000/daedlist/

Enjoy!

GeEkPiE said...

The best sites I have found to find roms everyone that has been asking -

www.emuwizards.com

www.romhustler.net

http://www.coolrom.com/

http://www.frozen-roms.net/index.php?lang=en

skanova said...

im a new poster here but i have follow´d StrmnNrmn with his progress with the Daedalus...ive never felt that i could help him but now i understand stand that there are some kind of file that i cuold post to him after plaing some games..i have tested alot of games but there is only on file thats called missing_mux...if it helps i could post it to morgan or StrmnNrmn...if you dont need it then good luck with the emulator and plezee dont rush with it...your the best

N64-Lover said...

Geekpie :- Get those rom sites deleted, it's still very much a grey area in emulation, and would be best to not have StrmnNrmn and this blog associated with them. Plus, it's a complete "rom kiddie" thing to do.
Another thing that's annoying me, (while i am on a roll) is that people report stuff like the "speed increase" to the PSP sites without actually going into detail of what kind of an increase to expect. Most people relate a 28% increase to be substantially quicker than what it actually is, and is therefor creating false hype and hope, and the resulting backlash could bring a brilliant project like this to an abrupt halt....Just think dudes!
On a lighter note:- Great list Wally! Like the way you work away from the hype ;) It works for me!
Definitely the definitive list..Great stuff.

Minotaur said...

@ Morgan

I have some great image dumps that are not yet displayed on your compatibility list. I will send them to you later in the day.

@wally

I need your e-mail so that I can send you too some including some missing_mux files.

@All

Does anyone know StrmnNrmn's e-mail?

Morgan said...

strmnnrmn@gmail.com

Morgan said...

Well send me the screens and I'll put them in the new build.

tsurumaru said...

Geekpie, thats really irresponsible of you, did you even read my post? Strmnnrmn has already had to go through one of his previous comments sections and edit out any rom references. He also asked people not to post rom sources on his blog.
Please don't make trouble for him, he already has enough on his plate.

Regards.

Hey capt. morgan, Here's one to try:

Aero Guage

...it runs an average of about 12 fps already b/c its only 2.9 MB - there are some graphical glitches but it's alot of fun, much like f-zero.

Heh, guess I did your review for you - o well :P

q_dmc12 said...

ok, Army men: sarge's heros2 is #%@$#!@$ slow and very glitchy. Asteroids hyper 64, however, is remarkably fast - in-game speeds range from 12 to 20 fps depending on how many asteroids are on the screen at any one time. The game size for Asteroids Hyper 64 is 5.6 MB - although, at first the frame rate is 0.67 to 0.8 @ the "no save pak detected" screen. If you can get past that then you are golden. ;)
