I dont have it yet. But if the option isnt there. Then you may need to first change it before running the program

Based solely on how real it looks, it's the best looking tech demo I've ever seen. Considering how little there is to see, though, it's a little demanding. At 1440 x 900 I get about 40FPS, and at 2160 x 1350 I get 20FPS.

I figured out how to run it at native res. Maximise the window then press ALT+Enter, there's no config that appears to be it.

 

I get 58.8fps at 1440x900(seems like it's vsync locked, doesn't change) and 35-40fps at 2560x1600. Needs more AA, but it's fairly decent. It's fairly neat in that the demo is interactive, you can click on objects and throw them around and schiit.

Emulators are PC gaming. This just came onto my radar, a PSP emulator called PPSSPP. It's still really early, so most games aren't what I'd call "playable" due to bugginess, but performance is excellent. In fact, it's so excellent, there's a version of it for, and it runs well on, most Android devices (and iOS).

 

 

 

Like I said, it's still early, but impressive that they have functions like supersampling and high-res rendering. Also, I get a constant 60FPS. Playing Crisis Core, however, music didn't work, voices didn't work, and you have to get a save file that's already past the opening scenes, because the opening scenes don't work.

 

Overall, very promising, especially considering, according to their website, the emulator has only been in development for a few months.

Been messing with this emulator a bit more. Got some more games half-working on it. Soul Calibur is mostly playable, Kingdom Hearts still has a ways to go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Screens might not do them justice, but they look very nice in motion.

I heard some of the other games are very decent, though I do wish they come out with a proper sequel on a console sometime soon.

 

BBS wasn't bad at all.

 

I'm looking forward to 1.5 and 2.5.

I'm really worried they put too much story into the handheld games. Apparently KH3 will be on consoles, so that will be my chance to get into the series again (I haven't played one since KH2), and I don't want to be missing, what, 4 games worth of story? I half-hope Square will just say the handheld games are non-canon... But I know that won't happen.

 

I guess there's always the HD collections.

Yeah, KH 1.5 and 2.5 shouuuuuld have everything in there, it'd be a great refresher before getting stuck into KH3.

BOOM This is the last time I leave auto instal updates on.

 

It's been 4 times now that I want to do something before my computer all of a sudden goes blank without any notification. 

 

Me sitting here wondering WTF I just did to my computer. Before the computer boots up and the 'Configuring updates' screen pops up and goes through 3 restarts.

Hahaha...welcome to the windows update hell.

 

I've gone through this so many times, I don't even use my Windows anymore. Going off to sleep? NO! Windows has updates for you to install, please wait while it does that.

 

Want to leave office after a days work? NOT SO EASY. Please wait, while Windows configures these updates for an hour, and you wait to turn off your laptop.

 

Its like a companion with a mental disorder.

post #1634 of 6598

That reminds me, around a week ago I read about the 2823324 update which supposedly made some people's computers unbootable or have BSODs after restarting (so infinite restart loop). I didn't have any of these problems but I uninstalled it just in case. Right after that, Windows fails to boot after restarting. I was frightened since I had to use my installation disc to repair Windows and the first time I booted up, it couldn't find my Windows installation.

So yeah, I'm still with this patch. If I remove it, I get the issue basically with having the patch for some.
