    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    @nomadicus how about a few videos of your buttery smooth experiences - I'm sure a lot of people would love to see them - always nice to see stuff working with box86

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    Kind of crazy to see Steam coming to life, making the impossible possible, one step at a time! Good work.

    Preparing for a Prototype

    Putting aside how many people most certainly can very much notice visually 60 vs 30 vs 20 fps even on a small screen, it would really ruin any game that needs responsive input, 16ms at 60fps is below the 20ms barrier where you don't notice it, 33ms is already not ideal and why a lot of people...

    Google Stadia

    Seems pretty odd to me - not that it really matters, I am probably around 2/3rd of the way through RotTR and will likely complete it before I pick up my GPD Win again. I am playing more games at a faster pace now I have a Stadia, as I get the best part of my lunch hour each day and normally...

    Google Stadia

    True; I only found out yesterday there was the dash button to run fast - seems like something that I could live without on GPD Win if there wasn't a nice way to bind it. Did you notice the ability to customize the controls on a game pad? I assume you are playing the non-Stadia version?

    Google Stadia

    Sounds about right; I suspect they'll be a way to force updates not to run; but I haven't personally done that, normally Windows nags for a while it has an update, so once I see that, I wait a little while for problems to be sorted out, then apply the update.

    Google Stadia

    For Rise of the Tomb Raider, it is a little bit awkward as R3 activates survival mode (so you can see interactable objects in the world more easily, to hint what you need to do, etc.) and as the sticks aren't clickable you instead have to push a key on the right-hand side of the keyboard. I did...

    Google Stadia

    Just messing around on my GPD Win trying out some Stadia games, recorded a minute of Rise of the Tomb Raider, arkwardly, on my mobile, for anyone that maybe interested. It runs well, although it feels a little off, the input feels a bit laggy to me vs Chromecast or playing on desktop or...

    Google Stadia

    Chromecast is always on, you just hit a couple of controller buttons are you are in. Overall the Stadia is a pretty sweet experience. As said before, doesn't replace things, but is a nice addition for me. Waiting to see if there are any Black Friday game sales today.

    Google Stadia

    Mine arrived yesterday, I tried it at work when it arrived, and then when I got home I hooked it up properly. With the gamepad there was no issue - I haven't revisited with keyboard and mouse from home to see if I can get the previous issue to reproduce or not. There is something magical about...

    Google Stadia

    I have a Stadia, I don't get anything like the above, latency feels fine, I do have other issues like when you move the mouse somewhat quickly in Destiny 2 it jumps massively. It doesn't skip a frame, it is still smooth, but it's like it suddenly things the mouse has moved a huge amount in a...

    Pyra General release date?

    Maybe in summer 2020? Leaves a little room for problems, and as a golden rule, there are always problems, and also is an average between the best-case scenario of earlier in 2020 and quite-possible-but-hopefully-not scenario of the end of 2020 (but completely ignores scenarios of latest than...

    Amazing work! Well done.

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    I guess there may be a better option of forking, having original run normal, fork running dynarec, and then some shared memory/pipe/similar for communicating between them to confirm results match up. Anyway, all looking really good!

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    I wonder if you could do this on-the-fly; what I mean; is in a special debug mode, you would essentially generate the dynrec, run up until the next return, when you get there save register state, and do the same thing with the non-dyn-rec and see if the results match. I am obviously massively...

    Box86 - Linux Userspace x86 Emulator

    Fantastic; I check this part of the forum most days, specifically to see if there has been any update here, as well as checking commits on github, but it is obviously one of those projects where a lot of up front work is required to get a handlful of things running, and each new app/game takes...

    I note that there has been continued commits on GitHub; just wondered if there were any more results to share?

    Quick update and summary

    Well, this is clearly not true... you can measure just as accurately in either system... the fact you can convert between the two systems shows you can represent all the same data with both systems. The only thing I can possibly imagine you mean is if you using fractions only with imperial, but...

    Quick update and summary

    There are reasons for both systems, lots of imperial is meant to be simple, so an inch is about the length from your thumb joint to the end of your thumb, a foot being around the length of a human foot. Having 12 inches in a foot is useful for the same reason as having 60 minutes in an hour: it...

    Quick update and summary

    Or go down the UK route of having a mismatch of old and new... most people would refer to their own weight in stones/pounds, but would refer to the weight of a bag of sugar in grams/kilos... for long distances we typically use miles (and have miles per hour speed limit) but most people (at least...
