I have recently installed desmume 0.9.11 on my Lappy, but its a pretty old one with possibly obsolete hardware. Before making false assumptions and claims, I would like to let y'all know that I have looked up the minimum system requirements but still there is a lingering doubt in my mind as to whether my system is set for running desmume at a bearable framerate.
I've tried running pokemon platinum and black but it ends up freezing my system and causes my graphics driver to momentarily stop functioning.
My System Specs
Processor=Intel Pentium Dual CPU T3200 @ 2.00 Ghz
OS:Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
There you go,these are my specs, I would like to know if it can handle games such as pokemon black,black2,platinum etc.
Thank You For Your Time.
Do you believe that an inadequate system causes freezing up? That isn't true.
Let's clear up lingering doubts. There's 2 ways.
1. Fix your bugged out system (upgrade/downgrade gpu drivers, change display method, change 3d rendering method to softrasterizer, blow out fans) and find out
Intel Pentium T3200 @ 2.00GHz : 1044/681
"What are the minimum hardware requirements for DeSmuME? 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or equivalent "
Intel Core2 Duo L7800 @ 2.00GHz : 1116/601 (the least flattering core2 duo @2ghz)
"What are the recommended hardware requirements for DeSmuME? CPU: 3.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo or equivalent "
Intel Core2 Duo E6850 @ 3.00GHz : 1959/1135 (the least flattering core2 duo @3ghz)
Therefore your system barely meets the minimum requirements, and doesn't meet the minimum requirements when using 2 cores, which will especially be needed when using softrasterizer, as you may need to do in order to work around your broken gpu.
I would not expect black or black 2 to be enjoyable.
I would expect platinum to be playable.
Alright thanks for the grim but obvious truth. Anyways i forgot to mention the name of the laptop.
Its a Compaq Presario CQ45 207TU. Now do you think i might have the slightest chance?
I've already analyzed the cpu. Besides the gpu, that's all that matters. And your gpu is broken. It's worth trying to fix it though, I'd say theres a fair chance it will help you out to the tune of a dozen fps maybe? I'm just totally guessing here.
