Found somthing interesting - downgraded to 1.0.6 firmware and played Project Overkill and I get FPS = 60/60 using the same settings

Even the emulator loads faster

ruffnutts ;)

Interesting... so if it becomes a definite improvement over the current firmware we could focus new tests on 1.0.6 version (it may be burdensome to downgrade/upgrade constantly) so it could be helpful if you compare your new findings with the previous results and make sure it makes a noticeable difference ;)

BTW, are there important changes between both firmwares to justify the upgrade? (in general, not regarding the emulator performance) Does it overclock properly with 1.0.6?

Thanks :)

There`s loads of reports about emulaters running faster - its a well known fact that 1.0.6 is faster than 1.0.5 ;)

Exactly, that's why I didn't upgrade to 1.5.0.

@ beta-testing: I think it would be useful if we'd post if saving (save state / memory card) works.

Cheers

Yepp, Abe runs great! So how many flawless games can we count until now? Project Overkill, Abe's Oddyssey and... ? Did I miss one?
Another game that runs almost perfect is Earth Worm Jim 2, at least in Wiz.

Pcsx4All New Build 11/12/10 - Firmware 1.5.0

Tenchu Stealth Assassins (NTSC-U)
Format .iso
Caanoo Clock 750Mhz
No Sound
FPS = 45 or so when there are only one or two enemies in sight, 34 or so when a lot's going on.
Pretty playable, it's not quite fast enough for me to want to play yet, but it's close. Toggling auto Bias seems to make it faster but very unstable. Sometimes it will run faster than it should and then quickly drop to being extremely sluggish. If I had to I would prefer playing it without the bias on.
Saving to memory card works well, managed to save and load a game with no problem.

Tenchu: Shinobi Hyakusen (NTSC-J)
Format .iso
Caanoo Clock 750Mhz
No Sound
FPS = -
Hangs after displaying the Acquire logo/unplayable

Please, from now on post the last beta results (the previous ones are now obsolete)

The new build includes important bugfixes: new idle-loop implementation (BIAS AUTO only) and several gamefixes: FF-VII, SilentHill, DinoCrisis, MortalKombat2, DynastiWarriors, PacManWorld, SyphonFilter...

No new features or enhancements in this build, nor speed-ups. The aim is to make it stable prior to the upcoming public release so it´s important to check if a game doesn´t work but it does with HLE-secure, BIOS and/or interpreter.
