[QUOTE=Caragolpe;30032248]I used to love emulators, I used them all the time. Then I realised that if I wanted to play console games, it was better to play them on the console, the way it was meant to be played. You just don't get the same experiencie.[/QUOTE] That's good too, but what about obscure and rare consoles? Mind you, I do take the console over the emulator where possible. Hence I have like 4 different models of GBA, a GBC, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Dreamcast, Atari 2600, Atari Jaguar, PS1, PS2, and DS. Edit; and a fuckload of other systems nobody cares about. I got a Sega Genesis with 4 games for £10, hell yeah. Y'all are just jealous because my TV setup looks like an alien command station
[QUOTE=Ir1shfox;30042778]Pcx2 runs metal gear solid 2 pretty badly, but it runs MGS3 fine, weird.[/QUOTE] Use some speedhacks. Also if you're playing original MGS3 then it makes sense, because the camera is positioned from top like RTS games which speeds the game up. Try to run MGS3 Subsistence which has MGS2 thirdperson camera and you'll see how the game lags due to viewing the surroundings.
I get 5 fps and texture errors while playing Super Mario Sunshine on Dolphin :smith:

[url]http://forums.dolphin-emulator.com/showthread.php?tid=771[/url] It's supposed to run fine unless your PC is very old. Try new versions if you haven't yet.

[editline]25th May 2011[/editline] and the game is like 40% cutscenes anyways.
[IMG]http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w306/Tuskin38/GZ3E70-5.png[/IMG] Nostalgia. I played this a lot as a kid. I'm in training mode because my friend has yet to return my wired 360 controller, and I do not find 3d fighting games comfortable to play with the Keyboard.
That's Budokai/Budokai 2 right?
I just downloaded mame and extracted both the downloaded file and the one inside. This may sound idiotic, but where is the mame.exe?
[QUOTE=Ese;30042989]Good to know. Windwaker on Dolphin is a travesty cuz it looks so awesome. The audio just wasn't there and many people complained of a black screen of doom at some point in the game.[/QUOTE] It works 100% here, widescreen and all included
Wait, downloaded the wrong one. Accidentally downloaded the source code. Oops.

I love emulators. It's nice to get all these old games to play and have lots of fun with. I get a computer just for emulators as a personal emulator station of sorts to set up in the rec room. Buy some cheap USB controllers and the possibilities are endless!
I was never aware that emulators worked this well
[QUOTE=ProWaffle;30058564]I was never aware that emulators worked this well[/QUOTE] We are in 2011. I'm looking forward to the original xbox emulator, it's been worked on slowly.

Older Dolphin revision had very funny bugs in this game like Snake "dancing" with the legs or Meryl going through wall. Also have this very funny bug Gsdx got in certain revision long time ago and was fixed a bit after.

I got into a good gamecube emulator a while back and played animal crossing for hours on end ^__^ Pay the first rent, they said... @______________________@
Is ePSXe any good for a Playstation Emulator or is there a better one
[QUOTE=Doritos_Man;30066366]Is ePSXe any good for a Playstation Emulator or is there a better one[/QUOTE] ePSXe is pretty much the one to go fore, you can easily find pre-configured ones so you don't ave to mess with addons
[QUOTE=Copy_Cat;30029570]After 10 years its legal just dont profit from it.

I snipped the URL myself, it seems odd that Copy_Cat was banned for linking to a ROM site but Hexxeh left the link on the post.

[QUOTE=Van-man;30051887]Is it just me, or is the title filled with sexual innuendos?[/QUOTE] The whole series is.
[QUOTE=Ese;30042989]Good to know. Windwaker on Dolphin is a travesty cuz it looks so awesome. The audio just wasn't there and many people complained of a black screen of doom at some point in the game.[/QUOTE] What settings do you use? These are mine and it runs between 27-30 FPS with perfect audio. (Note: D3D9 > D3D11 when trying to play windwaker) [img]http://i.imgur.com/LhTFI.png[/img] Also what version of dolphin? (I'm using r7442) (Oh wow i'm outdated) After updating i'm maxing it out at a steady 30FPS. :haw:
[QUOTE=POWA KILLERDeux;30072401]Doesn't MGS3 Normal edition and MGS2 SOL and Substance have the exact same style of cameras?[/QUOTE] Both MGS2s have same camera (third person), but regular MGS3 has MGS1 camera (top view) and MGS3S has both.
Would it affect the fps if I put the Dolphin emulator on an External HDD, and opened it from there?
Only load times. All emulators are CPU dependant with GPU being fairly close. RAM and HDD etc. don't really matter. Also the MGS3 cameras Normal and 3rd person. I am not sure, but in original MGS3 the normal camera is even from top like MGS1. Notice how the fps decreases, because it has to render more stuff.

I never had a PS2, so how does it look in comparison to the console?
