    Soul Calibur is on the cusp of being fully playable with sound on my 1Ghz Pandora... would be great if this new version fills the gap.

    Bah, I have a old version that works quite well. It's not the latest code but that can break the long wait time.

    Ok, the release is on the repo. The build is from around mid-june... (don't worry, I'll update to more recent sources later).
     

    build 12

    Ok so I'm playing Skies of Arcadia and I find that framekip does not seem to make any difference, now is there any way to set a manual frame skip, it almost seems that a proper frameskip or manual frameskip could make this game (and maybe some others) actually very playable. We are soo close here :)

    The frameskip is automatic in reicast. Frame are constructed in a bufffer, and are dropped if lagging...

    Im not sure what changes have been made with the newer versions of Reicast as Capcom vs Snk 2 still glitches sprites and Headhunter still crashes after the intro...

    If you specific glitches / crashes, you can take a screenshot and open a bug ticket in the github.

    I thought I had added a reply to this earlier, but it must not have posted for some unknown reason! Anyway, all I was going to add was that I read that indie retro platformer Volgarr the Viking has been seemingly unexpectedly released as freeware for the Dreamcast. I was wondering had anyone downloaded this and tried it on the current version of Reicast on the Pandora? I didn't get time to try this before work, but I will try later

    Hi there. I am a recent owner of the Pandora. I have intalled Reicast, SGX 4.10 & overclocking at 1200. I own a 1ghz Pandora and my firmware is 1.72. I have installed a rom of bust a move (which I beleive could be supported by Reicast). I get the dreamcast screen but then can't start the game and get back to the pandora desktop. Any clue ?


    Thank you for your help

    Reicast is moving from SDL1 to SDL2.


    I have made a build that seems to run well, but I have not conducted extensive test (in fact, I just played 30 sec with Soul Calibur and I didn't try the nubs), so if some of you want to try: Reicast.

    Thank you sir!  I will try it soon!


    Edit:  Just tried couple matches of Mavel vs. Capcom.  Seems to run faster.  Goo job!
