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.

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).

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

Thank you sir!  I will try it soon!


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