Cant open terminal with F4

    I can understand it will be slow for gamecube or some games of n64, but psx runs perfectly in mi raspberry pi3 and i don't see why it should be slower on a pc x4 faster

    @zsche you have fails relating to internet connectivity. Make sure your connection is working and reliable.

    You have a lot of errors indicating the system is not connected to the internet:

    fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/reicast/reicast-emulator.git/': Could not resolve host: github.com

    That's because pcsx_rearmed is optimized for ARM CPUs. Try using an alternate emulator, like lr-beetle-psx. According to the benchmarks I've seen, that CPU is close to a Pi4's CPU, so I'm not sure if 4x is the right proportion, as far as performance goes.



  • I'm sorry for the inconvenience i didn't realize the connection went down (I downloaded and installed some cores before and after).
    I'm now trying with a different and better connection.
    I'll try lr-beetle-psx too, thanks for the tip. (is there a list of emulators compatibility?)

    Check the Docs, there is large section with each emulated system and what emulators are available for each one.



  • I install all the emulators successfully, I noticed that lr-pcsx-rearmed works slightly better than lr-beetle-psx but the audio lag a lot, same for dc, reicast works fine but sometimes the frames fall. Is there a way to fix this? I noticed however that no system exploits all the cpu potential, it's always around 50-60%. I consulted the docs and tutorials but many are made for raspberry and trying to do the same I could not solve the problem.



  • @zsche what pi are you using? Remember that it may not be the CPU that is the bottleneck. The GPU on models prior to the pi 4 are very weak. It is likely a GPU bottleneck that you are experiencing.



  • I'm not using a pi, I'm using a minipc "Beelink BT3 Pro II":
    4 Gb RAM DDR3
    64 Gb HDD
    CPU Intel x5-Z8350 (1.44 GHz x4)
    Intel HD Graphics (Cherrytrail)



  • @zsche have you tried lr-flycast?



  • Yes lr-flycast is slower than reicast, and lr-redream doesn't start at all
