Re: all my games run slow

Quit using Windows Vista. That OS is sucks and it is very slow. Use Windows XP instead.
Or try out all speed hacks explained in the FAQ.

Re: all my games run slow

I have noticed the same problem with 0.9.4 and now 0.9.5 especially. I am also running Vista. But, mkfan1, before you simply write the problem off as being the operating system's fault, consider that with my PC's configuration I can play any 3D PC game on the highest settings with well over 30fps. I have an i7 processor (4 cores) and even running DeSmuME in SoftRasterizer mode should pose no problems. I can also run PCSX2 and play Final Fantasy XII with much better results than DeSmuME. The emulator *is* slow, most likely due to poor coding. I'm a software developer by trade and very infrequently is the problem the operating system. Remember Occam's razor: the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.

Then perhaps you could be so kind to spend some quality time by profiling desmume, and sending in optimized patches ? Since it's open source, the codebase *is* available for peer review and improvements, you know.

Re: all my games run slow

VisualCSharp can't even build desmume.

Re: all my games run slow

zeromus: If that's true, that's quite a crappy coder by trade, considering that building desmume is child's play compared to other stuff I've worked over the years.

Re: all my games run slow

I agree. Maybe VisualCSharp don't even bother to learn how to build desmume. Even though I'm 13 years old but I can build desmume from the latest SVN and the stable release source code. Building desmume is very easy, I think even people younger than me can do it too.

Re: all my games run slow

you guys are funny. I think he meant VisualC# as programming language / IDE, not the user by that name..

yonizaf: Yes, I thought of that possibility, but it's a lousy joke. If that's what he meant (and not that he wasn't able to build desmume, then asking, for example, on #desmume IRC channel how to build it), then I'll eat my words smile

Re: all my games run slow

unless he tried to compile desmume using visualCSharp, hence the double meaning..
