In Perfect Dark, you don't require a save state, because the above Perfect Dark screenshot was taken at the first solo mission level, just before going down the stairs to the offices in the lower floors.
sorry to post so much but i had to show you some screens i took of pokemon snap.
In the first and second you can see where you are getting instructions on how to take snap shots (I have never seen this in any other plugin)
In the third you can see that i was able to actually move the camera around(never happened with any other plugin)
the fourth was going to be how the picture flashes on the screen but i couldnt get it. however i was able to actually choose the pictures and give them to the professor(only able to do this with an earlier version of your plugin once)
also when you are going to choose the pics to show you can see the little pics up in the corner of the screen flash by.
ok ive been doing some experimenting with the framebuffer and frame update and wow.check out the pokemon snaps If you could play the game at a decent rate at these settings the game would be very playable. It is now as long as you change the framebuffer and update settings once you get to the prof's house. I tried to keep going further but the emu froze up once i got to complete buffer.
basic and write back seemed to do the best job along with at the first ci change for update. there is no way i could play the courses at these settings i tried and it looked like the scene was melting away. lol still I cant think of any other plugin that has come anywhere near this.
I *believe* that a software clipper is like a z buffer culling thing, allowing distance and objects to appear better and or in the right order. Hopefully someone more knowldegable can clarify this better, and or tell me I'm ridiculously wrong.
Your the Man in the emulation scene at the moment!
Some more bugs i have come across:
Ready 2 Rumble Boxing Round 2: Same problem as part 1 International Superstar Soccer 64: Grass looks weird and there are black squares under every player. (screenshot below) International Superstar Soccer 2000: Text in menu cant see and uniform during play look weird. (screenshot below) International Superstar Soccer 98: Weird Uniform Crusin USA: For me it wont go passed the yellow text at the start for some reason. War Gods: Flickering problem during play. Yoshi Story: Black background and very slow (screenshot below)
I've encounted a bit of a problem. Framebuffer effects aren't working for me at all. I'm in DirectX mode. I'm using version Rice Daedalus 5.4.2.
I was trying Banjo-Kazooie to see how slow framebuffer emulation would be and stepped up through all of the framebuffer options but got no slowdown or framebuffer emulation.
OpenGL mode is worse. Not only do the framebuffer effects not work (although I don't think they're supposed to in this mode) but the lighting seems screwed (making a lot of stuff darker than it should be) and it keep pausing. The pausing gets more frequent as the game goes on.
Edit: OK, this is weird. It seems the plugin randomly chooses which games that the framebuffer works on. Super Smash Brothers, Star Fox 64 and Turok displayed the characteristic slowdown. Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64 didn't.
Oh yeah, and Mario Kart 64 refused to display ANYTHING.
well i was just playing this game for like the last half hour and it ran fine. after seeing your post i started it back up and went through the frame buffer options and it was fine until i got to complete and as expected my fps went to about 12 . it works. what exactly were you expecting the framebuffer to do? The game runs pretty much flawlessly except for the puzzle effect.
you will find some good settings for mario kart a few pages back. it runs terrific.
I was expecting the jigsaw piece transition effect to work. I know it's a framebuffer effect and it should display with full or near-full framebuffer effects on at the expense of speed. However, enabling framebuffer effects (even complete) didn't do ANYTHING. No effects, no slowdown, nothing.
With all these updates and bug fixes, I do hope you look into the Worms-Armagedon slowdowns/pauses because the game otherwise is perfect. It's further than any other plugin at the moment with the game and trust me it's worth it because it is one of the most FUN games on N64. Thanks.
