Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

Hi Chips, I was using 0.3 until today that I just built 1.0 from your github sources. There's a problem here, both on Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi2: graphics are not as well synced as they were in 0.3. You can simply run 0.3 and let the Lemmings scrolling credits roll: watch carefully and you will ...

Re: Cross compiling a simple program that uses an installed

The sysroot parameter works right. That's not the problem of all this mess. The root cause of all this is since Wheezy (on which Raspbian is/was based), Debian adds "multiarch". That means that LD scripts, headers and actual libs can be in the sysroot for different achitectures at the same time. Old...

Re: Cross compiling a simple program that uses an installed

I managed to cross-compile by editing /opt/rpi_root/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libc.so and setting the paths to relative ones, leaving it like this: /* GNU ld script Use the shared library, but some functions are only in the static library, so try that secondarily. */ OUTPUT_FORMAT(elf32-littlearm)...

Cross compiling a simple program that uses an installed lib

Hi there, I'm having seemingly unsolvable problems while trying to cross compile a simple Rpi program on my X86 box. It was working before but I've since rebuilt my system and now I can't make it work anymore. I am using a cross-compiler I built using crosstool-ng. It lives on ~/x-tools/arm-rpi-linu...

Re: Uae4arm: Amiga emulator with JIT and DispmanX

It's uae4arm: I built my own executable from the 0.3 sources in your github account without NEON optimizations for Pi1. So, if you use this Makefile with the 0.3 sources, you should get a version that works perfect on a Pi1: http://paste.ubuntu.com/12530076 I made some minor tweaks (remove NEON, add...

Re: The best PSX One emulator

For Raspberry Pi, it's the PCSX-ReArmed core for libretro using RetroArch.
In general, it's the beetle-psx core for libretro using RetroArch, but it's way above Raspberry Pi 2 processing power.
Go libretro/RetroArch on GLES/Dispmanx, no Xorg involved, and have fun. It doesn't get any better than that.

Re: ZDoom - Poor Performance (Pi 2)

I have done a ready-to-use version of Chocolate Doom with accelerated 2D graphics using the Rpi native 2D API (Dispmanx). Works great.
It's here:

https://github.com/vanfanel/crispy-doom

ZDOOM performs poorly on the Pi because it does software scaling.

Re: I need help running Nestopia on Raspbian

Use RetroArch + whatever core you need. Don't use standalone emulators on the Pi, they generally suck except for Mame4all, PiFBA and Atari800. For all the other systems, it's RetroArch ONLY. There is a Nestopia core for libretro/RetroArch. There's also an FCE core. Use that. Avoid any other solution...

Re: rpi2 and dosbox games

Fastdosbox is a SCAM. It's simply Dosbox built with dynarec and packed with my SDL 1.2 version which has dispmanx support hacked in.
The person behind Fastdosbox is clearly violating GPL by making a commercial use of GPL code, both on Dosbox and my SDL libs.
Don't use it.
