Here is a new build of FBANext r423 Custom v3 PS3 MC68000/Z80 Arcade Emulator which now includes a big lag reduction among the changes and fixes outlined below.

FBANext PS3 - r423 - Custom - v3

WHAT'S CHANGED SINCE V2:

  • Big reduction in lag - also a far more stable FPS as a result of this (due to elimination of virtual function call overhead when a class would inherit from a base class with virtual functions). You will notice the biggest improvements with fighting games for CPS2/CPS3 - but overall all games should benefit from this.
  • A new shader - tv-highcontrast-HD. This basically mimics the look of a high-end CRT monitor. Set 'Hardware Filter' to Linear and select a resolution lower than or equal to 1440x1080 to get the best results (if you have triple buffering on - else it's 960x1080 or lower for best results)
  • Fixed: A hang/freeze would occur after selecting a shader and then changing the resolution.
  • Fixed: You can now go back and forwards in the list when selecting a shader - press Left to go back one entry in the shader list, and press Right to go forward.

As ever, I've included the diff file along with the pkg in the zip file. This includes all the patches I've done since the commit of r423 on Google Code. There will be a new release of SNES9x shortly with similar lag reduction (by doing the same thing - getting rid of virtual function call overhead).

This has proven to be a big win so far - the only thing so far that has actually shown a substantial improvement/difference while trying out several PPC in-order optimization 'tricks'.

As a follow-up to his recent SNES9x update that included an HD version with shaders, squarepusher2 has also updated the FBANext r423 Custom v2 PS3 Emulator which now includes a Custom HD Mode as well.

FBANext PS3 SVN r423 Changelog:

WHAT'S NEW:

  • Core - updated fm.c fmopl.c with to match latest mame.
  • PS3 - added triple buffer option (check options to toggle). Triple buffering
    will be stored in xml

CUSTOM CHANGES:

  • A much faster graphics driver - try CPS3 and CPS2 games and feel and see the difference in terms of speed. Most of the input lag noticed by experienced arcade players should be mostly gone now.
  • Triple-buffering is hardforced to be enabled by default - together with the new graphics driver makes the framerate very fast.
  • Sysutil OSD is used for some parts of the In-Game menu, such as saving a savestate, saving a button preset, or generating a clrmame.dat file, and so on.

Changelog for Custom r423:

  • New input code
  • HD shaders – as with SNES9x PS3, 4xSoft-HD looks the best

Included is a diff patch intended for Lantus – so these changes can be carried over into mainline FBA.

Yup. Install order is 3.41>3.55 OFW>3.55 CFW.

To be honest, I didn't try geohots. I installed Kmeaw and everything has been working great.

I wish I did just have a problem finding roms, I been up all night trying to install this. I am on 3.55 waninkokos V2 CFW. I have downloaded like 6 or 7 different versions, 2 have installed and then error when I try to load, the others won't install at all. I only see geohots CFW everywhere I look, did I mess up going from 3.41 OFW straight to 3.55 CFW?
