Hi, thanks first for your efforts for batocera. I like it so much. Especially the integreated menus and settings, beside the more on features as for example in recalbox, is really outstanding in my opinion.
Please keep your motivation in making things better as the others 😎
Now I will give you a first short feedback about N64 emulation.
Every time, when I’m trying out a new N64 emulator system, I test Goldeneye and Pilotwings. I think with that two games, you can get a first indication of the accuracy and speed of the system.
In first released pi4 Beta from 200417, both titles were not really playable:
- Goldeneye ran at about 70-80% of speed.
- Pilotwings had glitches on every N64 core or ran very slow.
The Beta from 200506 has already many improvements: 💪
- Goldeneye rans at about 90-95% speed with default emulator core (auto) without overclocking. Maybe overclocking will bring it some more percent speed, that it will run at 100%. Summarized it’s playable i would say. 🙃
- Pilotwings runs at fullspeed with core Glide64MK2. There is only the known music stuttering in menus. Additionally the shadow of the gyrocopter is wrong too. It is shown as a black sphere around the gyrocopter. Maybe there’s a possibilty to correct the shadow. On my raspberry pi 3 with rice plugin, the shadow is shown normally. Maybe there are some options in config files, which could change the behaviour in that case?
i hope my feedback will help. 🤠
