Can't seem to work out how to use fast forward properly

Good afternoon,

I have just started using DeSmuME and I like it very much, but my God I can't seem to be able to tweak the fast forward settings to run at my desired speed. I want to use the emulator at 150FPS, but apparently when I fast forward it with frame limiter on, I can play at that desired 2.5x speed BUT the FPS are atrocious which make the game unplayable. This doesn't change regardless of the settings I use on both frameskipping and the dynamic recompiler value.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you very much in advance smile

Re: Can't seem to work out how to use fast forward properly

If you haven't changed the frame skipping, then the emulator should be showing every frame so that 150fps on the hud shows 150 frames on your screen. if this isn't the case, your GPU drivers or OS are broken. About the only thing you can do to try fixing this besides fiddling with your GPU drivers and disabling gaming enhancement & streaming software is change desmume's config > display method

Re: Can't seem to work out how to use fast forward properly

Nope, none of the things you said seem to work (haven't tried the disabling gaming enhancement & streaming software bit). The thing is, when I play it with the frame limiter off, I get 150 FPS and even more working at the desired performance, but it often goes way too fast for my liking and that's why I want the stable 150 FPS. Moreover, when I play on fast forward with the framerate limiter off, something that I think is weird happens: the lower I set the FPS limit (90 FPS), the worse the emulator runs, and the higher I set the FPS limit (unlimited), it runs perfectly smooth, at around 300 FPS. What the hell is going on?

Desmume does not have an FPS limit, so I have no idea what you're doing.

I meant the framerate limiter. When I try to set the target FPS to 150 FPS the game runs slow as shit, and when set it to unlimited FPS, it runs super super fast, at 400 FPS at HeartGold menu for example, running 100% smooth. That's why I think this problem should be fixable.

Desmume doesn't have a (configurable) "framerate limiter". it does have a "speed" setting, but that's measured in % kind of and 150 fps isn't one of the fps you can get from the available %
