Thank You for your great work!

I'm using the last release of emu4crt with Attract Mode 2.5.1 on Windows 7 pro x64.
I'm also using Calamity's driver to output @15 kHz

Emu4crt folder is placed inside my home directory, so I don't have to worry about Windows write-restrictions.
I've manually changed the following parameters in mednafen.cfg:

Code: [Select]
video.fs 1

video.resolution_switch super

When I run emu4crt from command line, everything works as It's supposed to.
Even if I exit and re-launch the .exe hundred times, the updated mednafen.cfg is stored without any changes.


If I run emu4crt from Attract Mode, only at the first launch full screen and super resolutions works.
This happens because mednafen.cfg is correctly read.

When I exit from Attract Mode to Windwos desktop, the following mednafen.cfg lines are lost:

Code: [Select]
;Enable time synchronization(waiting) for frame blitting.
video.blit_timesync 1

;Deinterlacer to use for interlaced video.
video.deinterlacer weave

;Attempt to disable desktop composition.
video.disable_composition 1

;Video output driver.
video.driver default

;Enable frameskip during emulation rendering.
video.frameskip 1

;Enable fullscreen mode.
video.fs 1

;Display to use with fullscreen mode.
video.fs.display -1

;Attempt to synchronize OpenGL page flips to vertical retrace period.
video.glvsync 1

;Video resolution switch (0, native or super).
video.resolution_switch super

If I don't manually add them, Attract Mode launches emu4crt with a default mednafen.cfg that doesn't included the lines shown above.

Any ideas ?

Thank You in advance!

Hi,

Nope, no idea  :dunno

Iím using other frontend, without issue.

Could you try with official Mednafen release?
We also might learn something from the log file  ;)

Having quite some trouble to apply your patch, even on 1.22.1 (on linux i should say).

In fact, there is a circular reference : include/mednafen is a symlink to src/, so some files get patched twice, and of course, patch complains that it's alerady applied.

For example :
https://github.com/emu4crt/files/blob/master/patches/mednafen-1.22.1-emu4crt-A09.patch#L23 and https://github.com/emu4crt/files/blob/master/patches/mednafen-1.22.1-emu4crt-A09.patch#L1221 are the same patches

So it's hard to validate emu4crt on 1.22.2 :/

Aouch!

The symlink is coming from official sources, I canít do anything about this  :P

Iíve already applied a diff file on a previous release, canít remember how in details :dunno
Maybe the last diff generation is faulty, Iím not expert on this.

Iíll try to work on it soon.

Should I not use the official source to apply your patch ?

When I'm lazy to create a patch, i start from the default source code, init a git repo (git init then git add *), hack/patch the source, then git diff > mypatch.patch and voilŗ, done.

Thank you for the method to create patch, I didnít know git diff option, will use it next time  :)

Could skip the redudancy problems using -N switch. But your patch tries to patch a file that doesn't exist : .vscode/settings.json

I've attached a "good looking patch", you could give it a try to make sure it does have al the necessary CRT stuff. All done in Linux.

As always not too much time to spend on the fork, waiting for the next stable Mednafen release for an update.

Hey Silmalik,

I have not find any documentation in mednafen but maybe do you know how to hide the mouse cursor when starting a game in mednafen? Is this a feature that can somehow be accomplished in your build?

Thanks a lot :)

@alex2005,

I've missed to answer, let's hope you figured out how to solve your issue during this time.
Never have such problem with mouse cursor. I will have a look if I can reproduce and if it's bring by the mod.

A log file would be useful to have some information on your configuration ;)

@psakhis

WellÖ some obscure new parameters have been added to mess with thread affinity, that's interesting indeed.
But that doesn't sound too much easy to use though.

We'll see this shortly with the next mod release :)

Hi Silmalik! Happy Christmas :)
Unfortunately I still have the cursor issue. When launching a game the cursor shows up and disapears after a few miliseconds.
I have attached a log file, I hope that is good enough.
I just noticed in the log it refers to some snes.cfg and snes.pal files which I do not have. Do you maybe know how to set these up? Or maybe they are not really necessary?

Thanks always for your support and great work!

Hi mate, please post your mednafen.cfg file, I'll look into it.
Mouse cursor don't show when I run mednafen.

Let's hope it's not related with your hyperspin setup, I won't be of any help, I dumped the damn thing long time ago in favour of attract-mode.

Cheers,

Hey buddy,
thanks for keeping this up. SNES Faust works without any flaws (at least from my curated list).

May I add two requests for next build ?

- Minor grip : is it possible to compile a version which wouldn't show the cmd window while launching, just for aesthetic matter ? Or at least run it minimized ?
I'd love to transition from my frontend (attract-mode) to a game without showing evidence another proggie has launched (a la groovymame).

- Please consider enabling pce_fast core, I tried it on my main rig with normal mednafen, I felt it was more responsive / snappier than the regular pce core. Would love to test it on my Astro city.

Many thanks and have a festive happy season !

Okay first things first...

You know that judging from your *.cfg file, you're running an outdated version ? Did you even try super resolutions ? If not, you should, they work wonders.

Or maybe you mixed *. exe and *.cfg files from different builds ? If so, you should not as some settings have changed between versions.

I'd start with new fresh mednafen install, a clean mednafen.cfg and see from here if the mouse cursor issue is still there.

It's only a 5 minutes setup with a good text editor (notepad++ for instance) if you know what you're doing.

Cheers,

Thanks for the advise.
I'm using super resolutions, I noticed that I do not call mednafen directly from hyperspin but instead "emu4crt" which handles all resolutions. Maybe its not an issue with mednafen itself but with emu4crt.
I could get rid of it, if I just knew how to implement these super resolutions in mednafen.cfg file :)
I'll take a deeper look during the weekend and see if i can figure it out.

Hmmm... Not sure I fully understood what you've just written...

Emu4crt IS Mednafen with switchres, you don't have to download anything else aside the archive Silmalik posted to run the binaries.
Run the exe (i.e crt4emu.exe) once and it will create a mednafen.cfg from scratch.

At the end of the cfg file there's a switch :

;Video resolution switch (0, native or super).
video.resolution_switch 0

Now if you want to have both vanilla mednafen and emu4crt installed, better put each version to a separate folder as from my experience they don't mix well. It seems you can't have both *.exe together due to *.cfg conflicts.

Vanilla mednafen doesn't support super resolutions.

Cheers.

That was it, thanks a lot!
I installed from scratch a new emu4crt directory and with this setting worked.
Seems like you said, having both in the same directory somehow conflicted :)

Sorted it, thanks again! And sorry for a bit of offtopic :)

About - Minor grip : is it possible to compile a version which wouldn't show the cmd window while launching, just for aesthetic matter ? Or at least run it minimized ?

Sure, that's annoying. This is a consequence of a recent Mednafen update on log management. I tried to "fix" it without success, need to dig further.

Well, I may have a look on it on a later time. No promise though.

The update to Mednafen 1.24.0 UNSTABLE is available!

Not too much time to challenge the new features of the SNES Faust and Saturn cores, feel free to report about it. :)

Thank you.

Seven possible combinations if I calculate correctly. And potentially, the best combination can be different depending on the game...  Aouch!

Hi!

I do a regression test, and all it's fine with Pcengine, Saturn and Psx. All new options of Saturn's core on default (0 - not activated).

I'm waiting for more details for these new options, i don't find too much documentation about.

Thx!

Hi,

Well... I guess you have missed a regression on psx horizontal centering. :angel:

That will will be fixed in a next release soon.

I've been using your mod to play a few systems that dont otherwise have an emulator that plays well with CRTs.  It's working great, especially for handheld systems.  The only problem I'm having is mednafen sometimes causes the display to hang in 16 bit color depth. Is there any way to lock mednafen to 32 bit color?

I can't see why mednafen would do such thing.

Please, can you give us some details?  The platform you use, settings and also a log file would be very useful.

I'm using windows 7 64 and  rocket launcher. I get a notification on the taskbar at launch starting that windows has changed to 16bit color depth.  When the game is closed windows stays in 16 bit mode. Even launching other emulators doesn't being back 32 bit.

Mmmmm...it happens to me too in the past and i did some actions for prevent auto change depth bit color but i don't know if it's suficient....

I remember:
 * Disable aero desktop composition (i only enable it for pcsx2 and vsync purposes)
 * Hide taskbar
 * Disable notifications of depth color changes...

Thank you! I'll try disabling aero.  Would it have the same effect if I disabled it through the mednafen cfg file? If I totally disable it through windows xebra emulator has terrible screen tearing.

To exclude any Rocketlauncher side effect, do you have same issue when launched from a basic command line ?

Have a look on the stdout.txt file in mednafen folder, we may learn something.
