Hi Scott:

Just a notification that a bunch of links on your .tk site link to your old site, which are now advertisement pages.

Best,

I've found the main release works perfectly on my 2004 machine with pentium 4 2.4ghz, 1.2gb ram, tnt2 64 16mb nvidia vanta gpu. But the onboard intel video doesn't do good with mupen64, stutters. I don't know why and the nvidia card is of the 90's era but beats the 2004 onboard intel graphics in n64 gamming. Thanks man. What a Unique OS beats all linux distros with huge bandwidth requirements. No other linux has as many emulators. Crazy!! Just wondering do you get donations from this work? coz I've seen other platforms that the emulators are paid downoads e.g. android devices. Anyways Thanks for inventing fun

Hi, I have a problem with one emulator. The n64 emulator stutters when playing games only when using a desktop's onboard video. I think it is the way the resources are shared because I tried installing a 16mb AGP GPU that's a decade old from the machine and it works fine i.e. no stutters. I think the emulator doesn't effeciently handle onboard sound and video properly leading to the stuttering mentioned above. I need a solution as the 16 GPU is way too old to work with my current setup where screen rotation is required. I have tried configuring the sound plugin settings e.g. changing buffer values in the mupen64plus UI but it still stutters. Is there alternative sound plugin yo can recommend or else a better linux sound driver than alsa that's better for game emulation? or can priority be decreased for sound processors in linux or not ideal? I use Puppy Arcade 11, k3.4.94. Thanks

You could try a different audio plugin .. Load mupen itself (not rom-loader) from the start menu, and it's in the options menu at the top..

Or try one of the other kernel versions, or a different mupen emulator... Cos IIRC i included a few different mupen version in *most* puppy arcades...

But generally for PSX, N64 etc, it is recommended to use a 3d accelerated card ... Puppy arcade is based on older pups - which didn't always have 3d acceleration enabled by default - so you might need to install mesa or something to get 3d acceleration/glx working for inbuilt gfx cards...

Like i said I already tried that not from rom-loader but from mupen64plus interface. 3d acceleration is not a problem at all. All psx games work fine and there's n64 game called fifa 99 without improvised sound works nearly not-choppy sound bit slightly choppy. in the Mupen64 UI in configuration, there's only one audio plugin included. The other option appart is 'dummy audio'. I think the problem is the emulator or at least it's sound plugin. I think it' not optimized for a setup where both sound and graphics is onboard i.e. the sound gets sloppy. An example is the fifa 99 game where the sound is all prerecorded sound so nothing complex hence best performing. Like I said above, when I install a mere 16mb agp graphics card that's a decade old than the PC, the emulator doesn't render choppy sound. What other emulator or sound plugin can you recommend I try?

I haven't booted Puppy Arcade for years, but there may be an alternative version of mupen installed IIRC... Go to Rom-Loader settings, emulator tab..

(but that wasn't all version of PA) ...

Short of that, you could try downloadin a more recent version of mupen, or compilng it yourself ...

OR by now, there may be other n64 emluators you can download ...

Sorry I can't be of more help
