I made a .bin of the only game I had lying around at the moment that wasn't several CDs long, and that was Streak: Hoverboard Racing. I clocked to 280 MHz and started, but it wouldn't go. Stuck at loading screen.

Am I doing something wrong or is it just not compatible?

hello! hehe, i think that you must to do the test with interlace 1 and progressive on, and when you get graphic bugs the turn off the progrrsive, there is a big change of improvement from interleaced 0 to 1 =). Also to say that i think that de Underclock is medium Auto now, this is the reason beacuse yuo dont notice of changes in games =). Un saludo!!!

Saludillos Estopero...

About the UC_PSX directive, I guess that it's misleading, what I mean by No Changes, is that I don't make any :) ... As for the reason of using the highest possible settings ( including the fact that I must use the same settings as in previous version tests ), is mainly to test the engine to it's limits, after all, I'm sure that everyone else will try those options B) .

Right, next games to test are :

Parasite Eve I & II
Resident Evil 1 DC
Hogs Of War
Syphon Filter I

( And anything else that crosses my mind :lol: ) .

As has probably been mentioned, sound is disabled in this release, it is a beta and the main aim is to raise compatibility, stability and speed :).

As for the video out matter, I have no clue, are you sure that you have the right format output ? ( ntsc / pal ).
Yes i know that it is a beta it had sound in older versions and now it has a menu and a sound option in it i was just wondering if sound was put back in it. and the video out dosnt work on either ntsc or pal its just half the screen and if i use the tv out tweaker it still enlarges it all the time like before.

But its still amazing and probably (to me) the best thing on the gp2x ! :D

Wow, what a release! I'm amazed to see these games running on my GP2X.

All the games I tested were w/ interlace 0, progressive off @ 240Mhz.

Diable runs, slowly. It's graphically perfect. I had a lock-up on the first level of the dungeon, but I haven't tried reproducing it, yet.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure runs pretty well. It's slow, but graphically perfect. MK Trilogy runs well, too. Both are too slow to be fun, but everything looks great. They both feel faster than half-speed.

Risk runs well enough to play, since it's a turn-based game.

Raiden Project has an issue. The game doesn't use the whole width of the screen by design. The emulator puts the game all the way to the left and fills part of the empty right portion of the screen with garbage. The game runs, though, and the part of the screen the game uses is flawless. It's to slow to enjoy.

X-Com locks after the intro.

I'll get some more specific stats on these games later. The progress on this emu is impressive.

Do you need any special software for using the usb/samba connection, or can you do it with the firmware?

Damn I was "testing" some games that we bought for my aunt's birthday (on my PS2) and Beta2 came out just after we handed them over, I never dumped them.
