Was wondering if you avoided some errors present in other compilations (FFIII & Chrono Trigger crash when you enter a battle, B.O.B. exhibits weird lines in the upper part of the screen, maybe other games are affected too) and the performance regressions by using a specific version, since from the official 4.3.0 release, compiled with libogc 1.8.11 according to changelog, the fps penalty in heavy games is more apparent.

The FPS penalty I believe came from GCC regressions, not libOGC. I believe I stated which devkitPPC I used though as it was not the latest.

Wii version already loads Star Ocean. Or maybe you're talking about a different game, dunno.

Star Ocean is 6MB, stop using the decompression pack version and use the proper SDD-1 version.

Hey there, sorry for bumping this old thread, but I have an issue with this emulator's latest version (and also with this other one, the exact same issue). I can't get it to save my preferences and button mappings. It works well while I'm playing games with it, but as soon as I turn off the console, everything resets to default.

I'm using it through Swiss r382 and SDGecko in Slot 2.

Yeah I am going to join in on here as well... Is there a way to add 240p video mode to the emulator?

I'll take a look at the current state of the official repo of this and see what I can do.

I thought this already supported 240p through "Rendering: Original".

Rendering "original" is not an option on the gamecube version.

Just wanted to say I love what both you and emukidid have done for the GC

No such luck yet, I've tried compiling it with the latest devkitPro/libOGC but it seems some changes have broken things quite a bit.

I've managed to get this compiling, I'll have a build up at some point soon, just want to test it and see if I need to re-add the virtual memory stuff

Made a pull request. Here's a unofficial release: download.

MSU-1 seems to work almost full speed on GameCube with the game I tried, Star Fox runs full speed (did it before?), I didn't really test much else.

I haven't ported any of my virtual memory stuff to this again, I will at some point, it seems more stable now without the background music but after a few large ROMs you'll notice there's a memory leak and the menu graphics start to disappear (must also be in the Wii version but you don't notice it as fast).

New release with virtual memory and actual LTO flag in use, it's very playable, everything I tried was a constant 60fps. Download: here

It works like a charm but there still isn't any 240p mode available :L

FINALLY! An overall great SNES emulator for the cube!!
Yoshi's Island, for instance, with correct aspect ratio and no slowdowns.
Thank you, sir!

I played 3-4 hours of Prince of Persia in 240p with this build using a component cable + OSSC, what is your setup, take a picture of the game configuration->video options too please.

emu_kidid,

I'm having trouble making the images work in game selection. I used bg_preview.png as an example and it did not work. What is the correct resolution? Do I need a specific program to create PNG? Thank you.

I didn't even know this was a thing, I'll have a look at some point.

In the in game video config, set the resolution to something non progressive, then return to the game and then back to that menu, you should be able to set it to "Original" filtering/scaling which will be 240p/etc.
