Yeah, as i said, the "drive is empty" message meant it was unable to read your dump for some reason :).
It might be worth mentioning, i backported dump format support from kronos to yabause last year, which means it supports chd, cue/bin in a zip, and cue with multiple bins
Well, vulkan is low-level by definition, so yeah renderers using it tends to have a LLE approach of emulation, using compute shaders a lot to offload computing to the gpu, not sure it's a lot worse for mupen64plus and parallel-n64 than for the others.
Ha! That's what I'm confused about :) I'd a look at the repo a few hours ago and thought "damn old, doesn't compile, fix needed", but now it's pull'ed and up to date. Thanks for that. But I loved waking you up :)
@Rion Seem to work now. Funny how the product page has 2 confirmation added: one for acknowledging it's a pre-order and one for I UNDERSTAND THIS IS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH THE NINTENDO SWITCH (?). I wonder what troubles the CM guys went through to add those.
I'm not sure support for boards like the odroid xu4 is likely, because i know a few people who tested standalone YabaSanshiro on this board and were disappointed, and libretro-kronos is most likely slower than YabaSanshiro on this kind of board. However i intend to buy one of those to do some tests.
Yeah, i know those videos, and i know people who tried the real thing too.
@notthesame having a saturn "2d games emulator" running on pi3 is still totally unrealistic. Usage of gles3 is actually there to help with speed so you would end up with only the sh2 improvements over the old yabause, which means an emulator running at 10 fps instead of 5 fps. Don't bother people with pointless things, thanks.
On a sidenote, kronos is now available as an alternative saturn libretro core. It still requires a somehow decent computer (i think a dual 2.8ghz cpu with a gles3/gl3.3 compatible gpu would be able to run this pretty well)
I've seen saturn emulators having slowdown on an intel core i3 @ 3.4Ghz, don't expect to run those on a raspberry pi 3, neither raspberry pi 4, neither raspberry pi 5, except perhaps if someone create a dynarec (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dynamic_recompilation if you don't know what i mean)
