    Finding a ton of games that don’t work unfortunately.

    Tekken 3 freezes at the first replay

    fighting force won’t load.

    can’t get any boxing game to work. Knockout kings series and ready to rumble.

    Booo lol. But still having some fun. Ps1 games I find held up the least of any other system. Only some fighting, wrestling and sports are still playable.

    Hoping delta just adds all the systems there. Would love to have it all under one roof. And that is a much better app.

    trying not to actually complain as it’s still good for what it is. And I can still play and show my kids some old ps1 games.

    Provenance and
    There is word that RetroArch and Provenance is coming really soon. Both are great emulators. It sounds like RetroArch might have been recently submitted and Provenance is finishing up testing.

    I dunno. I tried Provenance Beta and it seems to be not convenient. It adds .cue files and not .bin, it always has some problems with identifying roms “there’s a problem with your rom, is it Shea, PS or other game?” And if I try to add roms directly to directory then it says something like “it’s not midnafen file format” or doesn’t see roms at all.
    Retroarch is my fav.

    Agree RetroArch is my favorite also. I didn’t sign up for the Provenance beta but I’ve been following the progress on X.

    I was giving MvC a go a few minutes ago, on Provenance, actually. Morrigan says "Hi~♡".

    ------------------------

    As of now, I haven't had any issue adding games to Provenance Beta; N64 games that don't work on Delta (few I tested), work perfect on Prov, and even gets rid of the visual issues Delta has on other games (like Banjo-Kazooie's puzzle transitions between screens or Conker's Bad Fur Day's eyes, as reported by another Delta/Prov user).

    As for support, PS1 games have a few controller issues:

    1. Some games crash the app after the PS logo screen appears when controllers are connected, just like Gamma. These are playable with on-screen controls, though. Examples include: RE3, Silent Hill, CTR, Vagrant Story and probably several more.

    2. Games that don't crash the app, need to be played with the d-pad, because the analogue stick ONLY registers diagonal input, which is a bummer, especially for some hectic action games, like MvC which is a pain with the Joy-Cons' d-pad. Other games that don't require so much precise input, work great and without any other issues (so far, no visual issues or bad framerate).

    3. I assume the diagonals issue is related to the "Analogue Mode" from the PS1 era (I remember controllers had a button for this), and Provenance comes with the option to toggle it ON/OFF, but it also crashes the app when I try to (can only be done in-game).

    I've reported the crash issues and sent log reports, so hopefully it might be fixed. Also looking forward to checking RetroArch, but I have a soft spot for Provenance because that's been my go-to emulator pack for years.

    Time to check the games that crash on Provenance.

    RE3

    IMG_1121.png IMG_1122.png

    I also double checked and analogue sticks don't suffer from the diagonal-only input issues Provenance has. Now, it's only missing a CRT filter for flair, but the emulator should work fine now with MFi/DS/XB/J-C controllers.

    IMG_1128.png

    As shown, diagonal as well as orthogonal input are registered properly with the use of analogue sticks; the hardest part was managing to press L+M punch at the same time.

    Unfortunately, some visual issues remain, such as the one reported on Discord by @Brightsiderus .

    Retroarch is out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    And it’s a mess at the moment lol. This is not the retroarch I know and love. Maybe it’s not set up for someone like me lol. Plus it’s not in English and I can’t seem to find the setting to change it.

    also I don’t see Mame or and cpx :(

    same here. But I just realized mame may never happen. Legally anyways. You can’t essentially own the old arcade games and they are more proprietary. You may not be able to emulate them as the whole legal point of emulation is that, “it’s ok if you own a physical copy”.
    I am assuming there is something behind this theory. But I could be completely wrong lol.

    really hope we get mame at some point. Or ps2 lol.

    Well, with RetroArch you could use MAME and FBA cores so you are basically okay.

    I don’t get how it works. Take for example commando. It has lots of variations but I copied over one commando.zip and opened that with final burn and worked a treat

    same for gauntlet and bombjack and others. All good

    This is what I was saying. It doesn’t support mame or arcade. Not on their iOS version anyways.

    miyoo mini plus Is the system I have retroarch on. It’s much better there. Has mame and other arcade emulators. It’s not powerful enough to play n64 or psp though. But for what it is I love it. Gave me all the nostalgia I needed. Well until iOS had emulators and now I am just downloading all the same shit again lol.
    Never played psp before. So I am downloading a bunch of those now. But using PPSSPP for them.
