Fixed!

I'm very pleased to be able to say that I've finally managed to fix the nasty bug I blogged about on Thursday.

I'll go into more details in a later post, but in essence the problem was due to very rare situations where the trace recorder would exit a trace when there was still a branch delay instruction pending. This caused the fragment generator to inadvertently skip the branch instruction, causing the odd behaviour I was seeing.

For reference, here are some updated figures for Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart (initial results are from a previous post). Generally the current changes seem to indicate an overall speedup of 20%-25%, which is great for a few days work. What's even better is that I've still not implemented all the optimisations that I have planned for R7, so hopefully these numbers will look even better soon.

What is Mario Kart now in game?

Minotaur said...

That's very good to hear, StrmnNrmn. Save me a rib from that BBQ, why don't you? ;)

Minotaur said...

Can't wait for the technical details of the bug and how you fixed it.

kersplatty said...

holey moley batman! sounds like r7 is lucky number 7. So i assume zelda willl be around the r6 mario speed now (drools) keep up the good work!

Morgan said...

This is when you need a private tester, talk to me StrmnNrmn!? No kersplatty it won't be nearly that qucik but it will be running quicker to that you will notice a nice difference. This emulator will take time, and I like to just think negative. For example with this 20-25% increase I tell myself that it will only feel like a 5% increase, which later when R7 releases when it's faster than that you expected. The last thing you want is people to think it's going to be SO much faster and then when they play it they get mad and cry like they're 9.

Morgan said...

Oh and to note PSPUpdates finally got my latest build on they're site! I think they weren't getting my tip so I put it on they're forums and when I woke up it was there! It was about time too, sorry Mario Kart God they didn't put my special thanks in there.

GeEkPiE said...

nice one, i happened to be at a bbQ whilst you just made this update

Exoskeletor said...

ingame the speed we need to enjoy our games is 25fps?
Also it is easy to you to add an option to enable/disable sound for the r7 also?

Mario Kart God said...

I'll agree with geekpie. I think the speed to play games really good is 25 fps. StrmnNrmn do you think you will be able to get that much speed in R7. Or will that kind of speed be in lets say R8, or R9?

Morgan said...

New build! I updated my list to satisfy some requests I got! Enjoy guys, now 30 titles are featured!
Going to work will be back in like 6 hours!

Mario Kart God said...

Cool build Morgan, BTW which game in your opinion plays the best?

Minotaur said...

@Morgan

I sent you some dumped screen shots and missin_mux.txt for Harvest Moon 64 and Space Station Silicon Valley.

salomon st said...

awsome he is going to say what zelda is at prolly like 1 frame if that but u never know

tsurumaru said...

Aarrragh!

How is an option for sound on/off going to appear in the R7 release when sound is not even emulated yet!

Read what Strmnnrmn is posting! R7 has been concentrating on getting the dynarec work done and further optimisations to improve speed and compatibility! Emulating sound at this point would likely have the effect of slowing down the emulator (and losing all the speed gains made to date and more) look for this in a future release.

Also I don't think Strmnnrmn is actually psychic therefore until he knows what it is he will be working on for r8 & r9 (graphics, compatability etc) I don't think he'll be able to tell you exactly how fast future releases will run. He may be able to give you a rough ballpark figure of how much extra speed he believes he could get out of the emulator but no definites especially as some roms are running 6fps and some 12fps and each rom is unique in the way it performs on the emulator.

GeEkPiE said...

just bricked my psp using dodgy gameboots in Xflash,

oh well,

anyone know where i can find a reletivey cheap 1.5 again

GeEkPiE said...

i looked at amazon and they have good condition second hand ones for £120 but i dought there are any in 1.5fw

on the other hand, would it unbrick my psp if i used the undiluted platinum chip

PSDroideka said...

Just got some interesting news about the speed the emulator is currently at (R6). I dont know if this apply's as it is in time rather than fps but anyway, in mario kart could you use the timer to tell you the fraction of full speed its at?
Because in Luigi raceqay with dynarec enabled it takes about 2-3 seconds real time for 1 second to pass in the game. In mario when you race koopa it takes 8-10.
Just a thought.

salomon st said...

u might as well buy a new psp if u plan on installing a up it is very difficult i hear and u need a microscope and have to be very good at soldering

salomon st said...

15 fps is plenty of speed it is very playable at 15 im sure

ExtraKrispy said...

Hey guys ive played through mario past the 1st bowzer on R6, going into the level i get about 15 to 20 solid fps. its crazy in the level its like solid 12, tand somtimes spikes to 20 fps. i have some nice screen shots ill send to ya of bowzer hitting the bomb. its pink boom tho. i think there maybe a problem with the screen shot function StrmnNrmn. i can play solid without taking a screen shot but after i do it will glitch,and crash, not al the time tho. neways check that out if you can, and ill send the screens when i find your email morgan, and pull them from my psp.

Morgan said...

Mario Kart God: In my opinion obviously Super Mario 64 runs the best overall, but one game running smoothly that I think plays fast would have to be someting like Rampage

Extrakrispy: Captain_Morgan_Daedalus@yahoo.com

Well I'm off work now and I'm kind of tired so I think I'm going to go smoke then go to sleep. I'll be on for a little longer so, anyway if no one wants to talk for a little then I'll cya tomorrow guys!

salomon st said...

hey extrakrispy do u think u could send me a savegame of ur mario game??

Morgan said...

New Build!

http://www.sendspace.com/file/rw3aex


Hope you enjoy it, and it'll be on PSPUpdates too so enjoy that when that comes out!

Disturbd1 said...

geekpie: did u install a custom firmware, if so u have a chance. hold R upon booting.


and is every1 bbq'ing? i just went to 1, lol. too bad its hot as hell in New York...up to 100 this week...

Urkel said...

same here, its like 200 degrees in chicago, but that means nothings better than sitting at home and playing mario 64

Mario Kart God said...

It's weird because I just went to a BBQ yesterday. Oh, and it's so hot here in NYC.

Morgan said...

It's hot here to in DE, anyway I will have a new build ready for you guys a little later. Hopeing to add like 6 more titles out of requests I got.

RyanMWolfe said...

hey in WV it is like 75 Degrees. i wish i could go to a BBQ but nobody here is having one. and morgan does Your Compatibility R6 have StarFox 64 i would like to know if it is playable.

Morgan said...

Yes and I'll be posting a new build very soon too!

Mario Kart God said...

Cool Morgan! It's so F***** HOT!!!!!!!! It's like a million degress!

StevIEmw said...

Hey strmnnrmn, great news to hear youve fixed the bug!! do you know if goldeneye will be compatable with this version??? or you going to try that in a later release??

Morgan said...

Just as promised my latest build! Now it features 37 N64 games, mostly this update is for people that requested tests. But if you want the latest build download link below! I sent one over to pspupdates so expect an update! Well I hope Minotaur, Mario Kart God, and Extrakrispy saw the special thanks I gave them in the last pspupdates article.


http://www.sendspace.com/file/iqpivh

Mario Kart God said...

I saw the special thanks! I'll download your build now! 37 titles!!!!!!!!!!! That's awesome!

Morgan said...

Thanks and yeah PSPupdates should have a new article soon!

Morgan said...

Not to rush you or anything StrmnNrmn but now that you got that problem all fixed I'll be waiting for your email! Keep up the great work and hopefully I'll hear from you soon.

Kemp said...

35MB? I think the pics could do with having their compression tweaked, or you could get some hosting and make a proper site for it. The site option could be quite a good option for you, would be easier than uploading the whole thing to sendspace every time you add something.

Morgan said...

I'm actually thinking of compressing with something else but I'm not sure yet. I also thought about a site but updating the build is actually easier than updating the site. I'm not sure but we'll see what happens in the future.

Kemp said...

One last thing, a lot of the files with longer descriptions have the end of the name cut off, some name length limit or another. As an example, the last one for Mario Kart.

Morgan said...

The names aren't cut off just click the picture and all the words will appear. Make sure your viewing the whole list under "thumbnails" and each individual game screenshots as "filmstrip". It's all in the read me that comes with the list.

wally*won_kenobie said...

morgan, i could host your project on my webspace.

Just let me know

wally*won_kenobie said...

Meh im hosting it anyway.

I converted all the PNGS to Jpg so that its 15mb now

www.dosgames.com/~wally4000/morgan.zip

Enjoy

Morgan said...

I was going to say yes so this is awesome. Thanks I'll talk more in the morning!

wally*won_kenobie said...

do you mind if i use some of your screenshots or missing_mux.txt files so that i can complete my database a bit quicker, would be nice if we could share somehow :P

Kemp said...

The filenames are definately cut off after a certain length, I was viewing them as advised in the readme. I'll sort out a screenshot of me viewing it for you to look at, maybe someone will spot something.

Kemp said...

And I'm done. Shots of me viewing the Mario Kart one in thumbnail mode:

http://www.iualdii.net/morgan/thumb.png

and filmstrip mode:

http://www.iualdii.net/morgan/filmstrip.png

If I try to rename the file then that is actually the whole name. Also, the lack of thumbnail image for it is because the extension is cut off with the end of the name.

Morgan said...

There's nothing wrong with my file names, your problem is that you have your theme settings on the old windows. You need to change it to the XP theme and then when you click it all the words will show up. Unless you have a old pc and you don't have windows. Because on XP you click the pic like you did but it will show the whole title.1

Morgan said...

No problem Wally just make sure that I get the credit, anything to help StrmnNrmn and to help the progress of Daedalus.

Morgan said...

Here Wally maybe you should host this and instead of calling it morgan call it captain morgan. Like the dosgames/wally/captainmorgan.zip (or however the spelling is)

http://rapidshare.de/files/27693630/Captain_Morgan
_s_Daedalus_R6_Compatability_List.zip.html

(I converted the entire project to jpeg, everything looks EXACTLY like the old version just half the file size! I believe it's 17MB now so enjoy!)

salomon st said...

what happened to the zelda results???

Morgan said...

They're in there, under the name The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time.

salomon st said...

i meant daedalus' results

Morgan said...

The Daedalus test results are the Daedalus Compatability Test. I just renamed it, just look for my name on it. (Captain Morgan)

Morgan said...

Daedalus Compatability LIST *

StevIEmw said...

i think he ment strmn nrmn's zelda update on speed morgan

Morgan said...

Oh sorry, my bad but I'm sure StrmnNrmn will answer your question as soon as he can. We haven't had an update the past 2 days so that means he's probably making good progress on R7, we might have an update tonight. I got a feeling.

StevIEmw said...

Hope we do!!! im dying for a new release. can not wait at all, hope we here soon as well, but got a feelin its gonna be lateeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :(

Mario Kart God said...

I have a very good feeling he will update us later today! Gonna go play soccer, to get into shape, be back in a few hours.

salomon st said...

idk i hope he didnt read whet the people at pspupdates said about his emulator and let it get to him they r dumb and think that it has to be at 30 fps to be playable but they dont understand it can be half that and still be playable on most games some *might* need 20

zeb said...

I wanted to say great job to Morgan and Wally for their time and efforts on creating their compatibiltiy lists and screen shots and missing_mux files for StrmnNrmn and everyone else. I just got fed up on reading stupid lame comments on pspupdates where there were alot of ungrateful people talking bad on these people who are helping Strmnnrmn out. I am grateful that you 2 are taking time out to do something positive for strmnnrmn and the rest of the communtity. I know that it takes some time to get all the files and screenshots and lists all together for each rom and to host everything onto a site. Don't listen to those ungrateful kiddies who just complain about everything and don't contribute anything themselves. Keep up the good work you 2 and everyone else who is helping out StrmnNrmn.

Imtiaz said...

I was wondering... The statistics that say "current", are these statistics for R6 or R7? Anyone who can clear this up I'd greatly appreciate it.

ukcuf16 said...

^^ I think strmnnrmn was rushing and ment to put

R5 R6 Current

not R4 R5 current

and current im pretty sure is r7

ukcuf16 said...

^^ I Think Strmnnrmn was rushing and ment to put:

R5 R6 current(R7)

not R4 R5 current

ukcuf16 said...

dammit sry 4 double post goddamn it sayed it failed to send so i rewrote it uhhh.

salomon st said...

im not hoping for an update today really i mean its been what lke a week i think he should waiit to see how much he can improve take his time i mean

Imtiaz said...

I have to agree with you salomon st. The more time he takes with this update the better the outcome will be. I do hope he keeps us updated on what he's doing and how much of an improvement he has made.

Morgan said...

My feelings exactly.

salomon st said...

yes a wip update would be nice but i dont think he should release a new build quite yet which is why he probably not going to

Morgan said...

Yeah same I'm happy with frequent WIP updates and releases that are spaced apart pretty nicely.

Mario Kart God said...

Hi guys just got back frmo the travel soccer club, and I am so out of shape i almost passed out! uhhhhhhh, a wip update would be awesome!

Morgan said...

Yeah I just got off the bowflex so I'm a little tired too, but this poweraid is helpin!

Morgan said...

I was playin Mario Kart today MKG and man I can't wait till R7 that way I can play a faster Mario Kart, it's going to be awesome!

salomon st said...

well looks like no update today guys

Imtiaz said...

This must be some BBQ...

salomon st said...

yeah like a bbq convention

Kemp said...

Hmmmm... it appears the filenames are intact in the archive, so I guess it must be Windows screwing the names up. I've never had this happen before on files with really long names though, tis very strange.

ExtraKrispy said...

bbq for all... i hate cygwin,and the psptoolchain, i install and install and reinstall and install and reinstall and the bick wont work any of the times i tries

Mario Kart God said...

His bbq must be a sleep over type of bbq. Oh, I cant wait to play Mario Kart in R7!

GeEkPiE said...

"crying" bricked psp

ExtraKrispy said...

i bricked my prety 1.5 whne psp first came out, dropped it and the screen said bye bye. lol it pissed me off had the botc for 4 days... the sound and everything else works ill sell it to ya all ya got to do is replace the lcd, o yea and its missing some buttons now and some other stuff lol

ExtraKrispy said...

wish i could use it to make a mod chip for the one i have now but i dun no how to make a mod chip...

Morgan said...

I still got my original PSP, just now it's Platnuim thanks to XCM and also it's got a 1gb (soon 4gb) stick. With an Sony Stamina battery (20% longer life) and of course NES, Genesis, SNES, N64, & Devhook 0.46 (with return to 1.5 mod). Got it when it was a 1.5 and updated it to 2.0, then back to 1.5 months later, and now it will stay a 1.5 thanks to Devhook!

Morgan said...

Just so you guys know StrmnNrmn has emailed me backa bout joining him. He has informed me that though he appreciates me helping him he doesn't want to expand the team (him) just yet. He said maybe when the emulator gets better he plans on expanding the team. He said to just keep doing what I'm doing and when he does expand the team he will need people he trusts. Like me and Wally, so we'll see what happens.

BreathofFire said...

It wont take strmnnrmn more then 10 mins to add expansion suport (its just enlarging the RDRAM size & storing the size into a location in memory).

BigMace said...

Well morgan no offense I am sorry to tell you but you dont have anything to offer to StrmnNrmn. So why would he want to join his team. See a dev team usually consists of developers, graphics developers/artists, and maybe a web master. Not some guy who takes pictures of an emu that anyone else can do.

Urkel said...

wow, strmnnrmn must be having one hell of a bbq

Morgan said...

I know I don't offer anything really for to actually join the team, I just want to do like testing bugs or something. Just maybe something to save him time so he can work hard on Daedalus.

Morgan said...

If not then I will just continue to cover Daedalus and I will continue to help people here.

salomon st said...

maybe he is taking a break

lordroba said...

well, StrmnNrmn definitly deserves a break after all the hard work he's been putting into the emulator. We hope to see you back soon StrmnNrmn, and good luck with R7!

Anonymous said...

Hey Morgan, i love your compatibility list. But, I'm asking you a serious question. Would you mind if you and me "joined up?"

I have created a compatibility list of my own (based upon yours) that only includes games you have not yet mentioned. I tested 19 additional games and 11/19 i have classified as "running." If you are interested, add these to yours and post em together. If not, other people can check out my compatibility list. I may continue my work as well. I hope you agree with me so that we can create "Capt. Morgan/CoBrA2168's compatibility list for Daedalus PSP R6"

Here is the download link to my list:

http://rapidshare.de/files/27871722/CoBrA2168_s_Add-on_Compatibility_List_for_Daedalus_PSP_R6.zip.html

Enjoy!

CoBrA2168 said...

Why is my name annonymous??

Well, anyway, here's the fixed link:

http://rapidshare.de/files/27871722/CoBrA2168_s_
Add-on_Compatibility_List_for_Daedalus_PSP_
R6.zip.html

Copy/paste the three lines please :D

Or just check the first page...

Morgan said...

I downloaded your list and I see the 11 games you did. Though alot of the pictures you can't see, like it just days it's a file, liek it's corrupted. Also you have yo rename your pictures in numbers like 1,2,3,etc also convert the pictures to JPEG and then send me a revised build because this one has errors with some of the pictures. I noticed in first hockey one the two you had comments on they were corrupted. Anyway when you have a polished build link it up and we'll talk. Thanks!

CoBrA2168 said...

hmm very weird. must have been stupid rapidshare. let me see....

CoBrA2168 said...

what do you use to view the images? all work fine for me...i even re-downloaded from that link and all the images will load.

Im using Nero viewer or something. Try something else to view them. Also converting to JPEG will take ages. There's no way i can do that.

CoBrA2168 said...

also make sure you are unzipping first.

Kramer said...

hey morgan why dont you start a forum somewhere or post in your blog instead of spammin up the comment section. All this spam is pretty annoying.

Mario Kart God said...

hHey kramer, how about you go somewhere else. Or dont try to start a fight.

Mario Kart God said...

Oh, and StrmnNrmn any updates??? Whats going on?

Disturbd1 said...

Can u let the guy work instead of bugging him every 5 seconds for an update? Geez....

kekpsp said...

hi everyone, I have been playing Mario on a DS, has anyone noticed how crap it looks on the DS screens, the textures are blocky and the resolution is crap, still it plays really well...

GeEkPiE said...

extrakrispy, how much you want for it

tsurumaru said...

A quick tip for those of you that are discussion image format conversions and the length of time the conversions will take. I would recommend that you use a technique called Batch Conversion, its available in Photoshop and also freeware image programmes like "IrfanView". Simply use File -> Batch conversion, then set the images you want to convert by adding them from the file select window, set the output folder and output file format (you can even mess adjust the JPEG quality if you want) and then "Start" and away you go. You can also use the process to name the files sequentially if you like.

Kind regards.

RyanMWolfe said...

ANYONE KNOW WHY ZELDA CANOT SAVE!! i got all the way to the part where you Go up the Mountain and then saved in game. then Pressed Select Shut it down and NO SAVE's IT IS IN THE FOLDER BUT WONT LOAD THE STUPID SAVE!!!!!!!!

Morgan said...

The save isn't perfeect yet, either is Zelda so. I also know about batch conversions and that's what I used to give that updated folder I made in about 5 min. You can do it cobra just find the right program. And to the person who said I was spamming I"m sorry. But I won't have any other build comming very soon so you won't have to worry about it.

RyanMWolfe said...

Thaks Morgan thought it was a psp Problem and thought everyone else can save and i couldn't but i saved in R5 and R6 wont work oh well


Thanks

david4shure said...

Hi Morgan,
Great job on your bulids but i just have one question. how do you take screen shots?

zeb said...

Hey cap'n Morgan, don't listen to those lame ungrateful kiddies here who say you are spamming. You are doing everyone a favor including StrmnNrmn by testing these roms for us. I for one vote that you and strmnnrmn team up on this project so that strmnnrmn can let you do all the testing for him. That way, strmnnrmn can concentrate more on working on daedalus while you help him find all the bugs on the games that you test for him. You have done a really good job so far by helping strmnnrmn and I really hope you 2 team up together and help each other out.

StevIEmw said...

shut up zeb, morgan is just trying to get copyies of the newest build before anybody else 'can i be part of ur team' ffs, its not hard to test roms, get a grip

CoBrA2168 said...

I can convert them to jpeg, but did you ever get to be able to view them? I could perfectly fine...just make sure its unzipped.

Mario Kart God said...

I feel an update coming today guys!

salomon st said...

idk i have a feeling something happened to this project

Mario Kart God said...

I sure hope not, but your scaring me by saying that?? Wheres strmNrmn??????

Imtiaz said...

Don't expect R7 anytime soon. It's probably going to be released in a good two weeks. He did say he found a lot of optimasations he could possibly build on. Be patient everyone. By the way Strmnrmn, I was wondering, couldn't you somehow manipulate the rom itself to make an increase in compatibility? I'm sorry if this is a stupid suggestion...

RyanMWolfe said...

how long is that BBQ you need to update us on ZELDA OOT and Does Zelda MM work???

CoBrA2168 said...

Check out my Mario pics!!!

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=6SY99FFF

Notice 120 stars :D

zeb said...

Hey steveimw, cap'n morgan is doing this just to help out strmnnrmn. So just STFU because at least he is doing something positive for strmnnrmn unlike your ungrateful behind. Anyone and everyone who wants to help out strmnnrmn in some way deserves our gratitute because then this emulator gets even better for us. I'm sure that strmnnrmn have saved loads of time by having morgan do all of this testing for him and giving him all the information and missing_mux files that he needed to improve his emulator. Why don't you stevenmw do something positive for once and STFU and be grateful that people are trying to help out strmnnrmn. I'm sure when the new R7 comes out, with all the improvements, you will be the first to download it not thinking about all the time and effort strmnnrmn and everyone else who contributed put into this and every release. So if someone wants to take out time to help out strmnnrmn any way they can, then let them while you sit at your chair staring at the screen doing absolutly nothing.

Morgan, don't listen to these ungrateful 5 year olds who couldn't and wouldn't take out all the time you did to create the files you did for strmnnrmn. Keep up the good work and I hope strmnnrmn does team up with you. You obviuosly have put alot of time into each of these builds and I know strmnnrmn apriciates all of your work you are doing for him.

Morgan said...

Thanks guys it makes me feel good that you guys appreciate the work it even took to make the builds I did. Now that work is nothing to StrmnNrmn's work so I just hope I saved StrmnNrmn a little time to get Daedalus the best it can be. It is good that we are hearing nothing from StrmnNrmn though because it means everynight he's been working on the emulator. Trust me he's working on it hard at night and when he's done he doesn't want to even touch a pc after that. So just keep up the great work StrmnNrmn and thanks to you other guys it makes my work worth while.

CoBrA2168 said...

morgan check out my mario pics

Morgan said...

Downloading it now.

Morgan said...

So what you downloaded a save from somewhere, I mean I know you did't actually get that many stars by actually playing it. Anyway convert them to JPEG quickly and post a new build here because I'm putting a build together very soon to submit to PSPUpdates. I had it unzipped I'm not an idiot, maybe something went wrong in the download, but I'm sure if I tried again they'de be okay.

RyanMWolfe said...

yeah morgan you are the best pre dev out there. you are on your way to becoming a true dev and getting respect. even thouhg most people dont like daedalus because it is slow, we should not let them have the Complete 100% full speed daedalus see how they like that. Anyway thanks for Helping StrnNrm and we always will support you.

cant wait For R7 and play New games and hopefully the R7 will not have the Purple and black Graphics.



Good Work:-) :P

Morgan said...

Cobra man I need to submit this latest build man I need you to come up with that converted build like now man. Thanks wolfe!

skater9269 said...

ryanwolfe you dumbass what are you talking about most people love daedalus they are just impaitent.

Morgan said...

No need for that kind of language man come on, anyway Cobra I would like to have that save file though for testing. Might help StrmnNrmn, when you can could you throw that thing over to my email. Captain_Morgan_Daedalus@yahoo.com

-thanks

BigMace said...

ryanwolfe,
How is morgan becoming a developer, he has never released any programs in his entire life. I also bet that he has never written a line of code in his life. No offense to morgan but he pushes a fricken button. If i had no life and I really wanted to I could take like 500 screenshots of some emu put it in a zip file then prance around the homebres scene like i was a god of the homebrew scene too.

Urkel said...

how morgan be the best "pre-dev" out there?

thats just like saying im the best nascar driver ever but I only drive a mini van. Coding doesnt take someone that takes screenshots of an emulator and than claims to be joining strmnrmn who said he doesnt need a dev team right now. Its ok if you have basic knowlegde of how an emulator runs, but do you, morgan, have any basic knowledge on n64 emulation for the psp?

CoBrA2168 said...

okay hold on give me a sec

Morgan said...

I believe I have enough information I need to know about emulation that I will need to know, and if I am so lucky to be able to help StrmnNrmn I'm sure if there is something I don't know he will teach me. Please the comments about me being the "best non-dev" or whatever were not made by me so don't take them as my opinion. I am just one person like you guys trying in any way I can to help Daedalus be the best it can be. I don't know why someone else said that I am just doing this to get pre builds or something because so far I haven't done anything very selfish. I have made the best documentation of tests with missing_mux to help the progress of this emulator, I don't see why anyone would make these comments.

Morgan said...

Cobra I'm sorry but when I said now I actually meant now. I submited my build to PSPUpdates, but keep up your work and I'll polish it and if you would like I can put it in the next build.

Morgan said...

I'm out guys goin to go smoke, Cobra hit me up about that save file. I'll check my mail in the morning, please don't dissapoint, night!

CoBrA2168 said...

Okay it should be in your inbox :D

Here's the upload if for some reason it doesn't work.

N64-Lover said...

I think it's time to close the comments section of this blog. I remember when i first came here, and it had some good devs throwing a few ideas around, and now it's nothing more than a playground for children.
Morgan with all due respect, you should start your own blog and take this testing crap there, and not clutter up this site with this.
I honestly can't see StrmnNrmn reading through half of this shit to find the questions that actually warrant an answer.
It just saddens me, because i can see where this is leading. We are so lucky to have StrmnNrmn dev'ing on the PSP, after being absent from the N64 scene for quite a few years. That's why i was extremely happy to see him on here shooting the breeze with other dev's, at the very least it kept pricking his interest.
I can't see this being fun for him to read to be honest!

Morgan said...

I never thought of it like that, I'm not making any builds like that anyone besides this Cobra update. Read the article on PSPUpdates when it comes out it'll explain.

Morgan said...

Cobra I'd really like to wake up to that mario save too, please and thanks.

StevIEmw said...

zeb shut your face you ass-hole. what morgan is doing is worthless at the moment. just spanning up a comments section of a blog, anybody who wants this emu at the moment will test out there own roms, no-body i know cares about margans efforts, and him wanted to join strnmnrnm's team is a joke, he should get his own blog and stop spamming up this board!! this comments section is meant foer how strnm is doing, not when captain fukin dipshit tests another rom, really, get a grip.

Im just saying what alot of other people think aswell

Kramer said...

hey morgan why dont you post about your compat list and disscus it in your own blog because these comment sections have seriously gotten ouy of control.

Where is StrmnNrmn anyway???!!!

stee said...

i agree theres nothing wrong with morgan doing this for us but stop posting so much about it in this blog which is for StrmnNrmn

Minotaur said...

Not to offend anyone, but this blog was supposely made for devs/programmers to reflect from each other, but instead like someone has said, has turned into a blog of immaturity. I honestly would not blame if StrmnNrmn decided to discontinue Daedalus for PSP. I too am young, but there is too many "kids" running amuck on this blog selfishly blogging about infererior and obsolete things. We are suppose to be blogging the technical side of Daedalus instead of the inferior. Just stand in StrmnNrmn shoes for a moment. Theres already people shoving down his throat about plans for R7+.

Morgan, dude, there's nothing wrong with what you're doing. Could you please create a blog for for not just your compatibility list, but too for all the immature brats?

Morgan said...

Yeah I can do that.

Morgan said...

http://captain-morgan-daedalus.blogspot.com/

There ya go guys my blog, it's the same layout as StrmnNrmn but that's only because my favorite color is green and this one has the best green in it. Anyway if ANYONE wants to talk about my compatability list go there and if anyone asks about my list I will direct them there. Sorry StrmnNrmn for the trouble.

salomon st said...

hey guys the way its looking i think he is taking a break or working extremely hard or that is just one hell of a bbq

Morgan said...

Cobra what is your email again?

zeb said...

Nice work Morgan, I downloaded your lastest build and it is very detailed. Don't listen to those dumb ass kids in this blog talking shit to you. They haven't done anything positive to help out strmnnrmn in any way except to whine and complain about everything. You should post your new build here also because I know alot of people on this blog want to hear and see your new build over here also. Even strmnnrmn made a new blog thread on your compatibility tests because he knows how important it was for him to have. otherwise he wouldn't of even made a new thread about it if he didn't care. A lot of us appriciate the work you are doing for strmnnrmn. Keep up the good work Cap'n Morgan!

Morgan said...

Don't worry I don't let those clowns get to me, but please if you want to talk about my list please do it on my blog.

Morgan said...

http://www.sendspace.com/file/9hjm89

My final build! More description at my blog, and please only talk about it on my blog.

wally*won_kenobie said...

I agree with tsurumaru

I dont post updates to my Compat list every second minute.

Morgan said...

I'm done with updates so does it matter now?

salomon st said...

hey strmnnrmn wat is ur target minimum for fps cause i mean 15 is good enough for me

Disturbd1 said...

Just finished playing the PCSX2 (PS2) emulator, its surprisingly good. Hopefully we'll get those kinds of speeds with this emulator soon! (20-30 fps)

Morgan said...

StrmnNrmn could you think about adding the chance of having multiple saves in a future build. Thanks and keep up the great work, I know when you update us you will probably have a whole crap load of stuff to tell us.

ExtraKrispy said...

im hopeful too, even i log on to myspace more ofter lol and i dunt use it that much cept now. go strmn go... i wunder if he has gotten close to finishing the whole project and thats why he hasnt updated, at least i hope

RyanMWolfe said...

Where are you StrnrmNrm i hope you are hard at work which i know you are. When R7 comes out it wil all pay off and you will make everyone happy yet again.


Yayyyyyyyyy StrnrmNrm your the best.

CoBrA2168 said...

PCSX2 is on the computer :/

Plus only a few games get that good FPS, most get < 5

Urkel said...

stremnrmenadnsd must be having one hell of a bbq, how long has it been, 5 days? he must weigh 600 lbs by now.

ukcuf16 said...

^ was that supposed 2 be funny?

GeEkPiE said...

i think sony and nintendo got there possy and special forces over to StrmnNrmns house and kidnapped him took him into a white room torchered him and eventually forced him to work for them overwise they would threaten to sue him

he he, not plausable but possible

Urkel said...

Fuck you ukcuf

thedman said...

sup dudes new hear hey where is strnum at srry for the spelling

stee said...

You guys don't think somethings happen to StrnrmNrm or the project do you?????

maverick said...

OK guys I think you can quit it with the spam comments, StrmnNrmn will update when he has time. And stee if something did happen, StrmnNrmn would have said something.

ukcuf16 said...

guys stfu its been less than a week

ukcuf16 said...

i mean its been a week whatever

Morgan said...

This is a great thing, I bet he got so far into R7.

Mario Kart God said...

I bet u he got already farther than he expected in R7.

Disturbd1 said...

Have paticience guys, it takes a while to code, especially for emulators, he's prolly fixing up sum bugs that would interfere w/ gameplay. The longer it takes the better. Instead of pumping out a release every two weeks, a lot more can be done in long-block intervals. Just look at PCSX2, the speed increase has been dramastic over the past few months... Just give the guy sum time.


Bsides, he does have a life ya know!

Mario Kart God said...

I bet u by the time StrmnNrmmn's next post is the emulator is going to be extremely fast!

Imtiaz said...

Don't get everyone's hopes up like that! I still hope your right though...

thedman said...

do u guys even think hes still working on it he could have died or been shot or had a heart attack form to many ribs he could have just gave up does anyone now him like seen him in person to now if hes still ALIVE OR IN THE HOSPITIAL or sumtin??!??!?!?!

not to get anyone scared or anything

thedman said...

oh and by the way is its 8 hera in america what time is it in the uk

thedman said...

oh i see its at the bottom ha ha funny srry for the posting

Mario Kart God said...

I hope he's ok. I wish he would post something.

thedman said...

GOD DAMIT DUDE WHERE U AT IF U DONT POST SUMTIN SOON IM GONNA COMMIT SUCIDE

PSDroideka said...

Everyone just calm down, i meen on this thread alone about 3 people have had to say what i'm saying now, stop whinging and be patient. Seriously, when this emulator was first released he made a release every, like, 2 days and now because he's improving it for a week you say he's taking to long to reply to your spamming, i mean comments. The longer you wait the better it'll be.

ukcuf16 said...

omg ppl its been A WEEK not seven years.

infernomax said...

Im gonna say what where all thinking "Poision Porkchop" :P nah jokes take ur time dude, good luck with the next release.

stee said...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

JUST FACE IT GUYS STRMNNRMNS GONE HES NOT COMING BACK WERE ALLL DOOMED

N64-Lover said...

Stee, do us all a favour and get back in your cot. FFS people, it's only been a week since his last update. Go outside and try and get some friends and maybe a life!
He'll update when he's good and ready, and not when you kids want him too.
He's obviously working on it, but he's stated on numerous occasions that he works long hours...Give him a break, and try and have realistic expectations for the next release.

stee said...

geez i was joking do you people know what that is?

and i find it funny that someone who makes love to N64's is telling me to get a life.

El3M3nT123 said...

Damn this BBQ must be alsome i wish i was invited!

N64-Lover said...

Stee, i honestly thought you couldn't get any more stupid. N64-Lover represents my love for the system, which is probably why i made a graphics plugin, stop me if that's going a little too quick for you.
I actually spend a lot less time sat at my keyboard than most, which is why i don't get frustrated when something doesn't get updated within a week or two.. Unlike your not so good self, i do indeed have a life, and not one that involves my hand and a copy of 'muscle weekly'. Sound familiar to you!
If half of you realised what a tall task it is to undertake, just to get a half decent framerate on the PSP, you would allow him some space and not have over the top expectations of this emulator.

GeEkPiE said...

although im quite a patient person i am quite concerned for StrmnNrmn considering he said he would be releasing the details of how zelda was running on the current emu after this BBQ, iv come to the conclusion of six possible presumptions -

1. he has been asked to stop his work on the emu, or lawsuites will be made.

2. he has made a breakthrough with his emu and is improving it still and maybe even having this next release as a last release as he may have decided to do all that he possibly can to make the emu perfect, adding sound etc.

3. he has gone somewhere, maybe on holiday that he thought he would be able to get access to the net from but unfortunately cant.

4. he met a girl (love) say goodbye to the emu.

5. decided to take a break without telling us. (unlikely)

6. other

stee said...

wtf you on about i wasn't being serous when i said that coment moron IT WAS A JOKE

and by making a stupid comments about me not having a life just shows how imature and stupid you are.

next time try and see when someone is joking when they post a comment. I know that is hard for such a dull, serous and dislikable person such as yourself but please try.

N64-Lover said...

You really are too dumb to be labelled stupid. Do you sit on here all day pressing refresh? How sad is that?!
Try going out on a night, and maybe one time you will see the moon, and not that one your mother's always got perched over your face..mohahahaha

N64-Lover said...

By the way Stee, your spelling sucks, not as much as the aforementioned mother though... Who sucks like a brand new Dyson!

stee said...

n64-lover how do you expect anyone to take you serous when your coming out with constant stupid comments which have nothing to do with anything we have been talking about.

I said made a joke big deal it has nothing to do with you.

and i can't be bothered speaking to someone who IF is over the age of 10 should grow up.

i mean "your mom sucks" is a joke i heard in year 4 at school.

stee said...

o and by people like you end up very lonely, old and bitter.

i have a great life with great friends and a beautful girlfriend

i no you want me to sink down to your level and start poping jokes at your mom but it isn't ain't gonna happen kiddo.

N64-Lover said...

You have a great life, with your girlfriend. But instead, you choose to spend it sleeping on this site waiting for an update...mohahaha And that sounds like bullshit, why exactly?
Keep camping! You amuse me with your bad grammar!

N64-Lover said...

Oh! And i am sure you only stoop this low when taking a piss :p

stee said...

can't be bothered with you anymore cause beleave it or not i am going out now

and if you think insulting my grammer bother's me well it doesn't

i could type perfect if i wanted to but why bother i'm only on the internet talking to you after all

ukcuf16 said...

^ nerds gone wild at its finest

Frisky Jaguar said...

Please stop spamming. Some one be the bigger man and walk away. Now I'm going to shutup because I'm spamming too.

N64-Lover said...

That's it, quit while you're behind..mohahahahahahaha
Anyway, the initial point i was trying to make was that we ought to be patient. In the N64 scene, it's not uncommon to be left waiting months for an update, or years in the case of Nemu64 (anyone remember that). So, it's quite important to remember the scale of the task at hand... He's trying to get a quite complete n64 emulator to run at a decent framerate. And Rome wasn't built in a day!

infernomax said...

Obviously N64-Lover won that fight. Stee had the worst comebacks, GG

stee said...

i wasn't fighting that moron was just throwing radom insults and making himself look like a 10 ear old kid

N64-Lover said...

No Stee, you're a loser, you lost. You lose at everything in life. If there was a competition for losing, you would come last..mohahaha
Like picking the legs off a spider! Lol

stee said...

wow you couldn't sound more like an ass if you tried.

i didn't fall in to your flamebait get over it and move on kid
