    Played it already a bit ago, but good call. I really enjoyed it (even wrote a review of it). I'll definitely move to Parasite Eve 2, though I hear it's a little less RPG like.

    Meanwhile, drones are paying Ninny real moniez for their NES / SNES Classic scam ("Over 20 gaems preinstalled!!1!"). When everybody and their dog played all these games on emulators (available for free since 199x). Or on Virtual Console / other shitz.
    Fuck me, gamers are perculiar folk.

    Well these are the people that consider emulators too complicated and sure as hell aren't going to bother with arduino/raspberry pi emulation boxes.
    They just buy it because it is popular, i doubt that they even play the thing for more then 5 minutes.

    You mean in the UI? Nah not that i'm aware of, they are working on it for ages as far as i know but you can allrdy configure it in the ini, for example here is mine for a xbone pad:

    Show Spoiler

    [Controls]
    button_a="button:0,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_b="button:1,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_x="button:2,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_y="button:3,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_up="direction:up,hat:0,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_down="direction:down,hat:0,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_left="direction:left,hat:0,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_right="direction:right,hat:0,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_l="button:4,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_r="button:5,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_start="button:7,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_select="button:6,joystick:0,engine:sdl"
    button_zl="code:49,engine:keyboard"
    button_zr="code:50,engine:keyboard"
    button_home="code:66,engine:keyboard"
    circle_pad="axis_y:1,joystick:0,engine:sdl,axis_x:0"
    c_stick="axis_y:4,joystick:0,engine:sdl,axis_x:3"
    motion_device="engine:motion_emu,update_period:100,sensitivity:0.01"
    pad_a=65
    pad_b=83
    pad_x=90
    pad_y=88
    pad_l=81
    pad_r=87
    pad_zl=49
    pad_zr=50
    pad_start=77
    pad_select=78
    pad_home=66
    pad_dup=84
    pad_ddown=71
    pad_dleft=70
    pad_dright=72
    pad_cup=73
    pad_cdown=75
    pad_cleft=74
    pad_cright=76
    pad_circle_up=16777235
    pad_circle_down=16777237
    pad_circle_left=16777234
    pad_circle_right=16777236
    pad_circle_modifier=68
    pad_circle_modifier_scale=0.5

    Dunno if it works for other pads as well you might need to modify it if your pad isn't showing up as joystick:0 in windows, or just use xpadder or something like it instead (you will not have any analog controls that way though dunno if that matters).

    Thanks for that. I'm now playing Culdcept Revolt on Citra and it works pretty well.

    I love Culdcept (played the PS2 version to death), this seems a little dumbed down (at least it has a popamole unskippable tutorial...) but I'll take any Culdcept over no Culdcept. Hopefully really OP cards like Old Willow and Kelpie are toned down in this version.

    [​IMG]

    Btw is there a way to run Citra fullscreen? I couldn't find the option, alt+enter doesn't work. Ini toggle maybe? Right now I'm using Borderless Gaming but it's not ideal, can't hide the top menu bar.

    Using the build linked by tet666, games are running pretty badly for me on an i5 3570k@4.4ghz/GTX 1070. Culdcept runs full speed, but Metroid: Samus Returns is stuck at 89% speed (around 25fps) and Fire Emblem Fates ran like shit.

    Are there any faster alternative builds out there that you can recommend?

    There are some fullscreen builds on citras appveyor you can try if you like: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/bunnei/citra/history (mingw builds are tiny bit faster so take those) should be merged to master soon.
    Metroid should be fullspeed with the texcache builds daman posted on reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/Citra/comments/730cgg/speed_up_metroid_with_this_one_simple_trick) on your system, make sure you disable vsync and set log_filter=*:Critical in the ini since that can cause slowdowns.

    You can also try one of the new Shader Scheduler builds: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/bunnei/citra/build/1.0.6163 another new feature, which should speed up the emulation a bit in some games.

    Thanks tet666, I've had the best luck with the texcache builds (Phanto-M), but I still can't run Metroid at fullspeed. I'll wait awhile or just try again after I upgrade my CPU.

    Well it looks somebody is trying to make x360 games run natively on pc:
    https://github.com/rexdex/recompiler
    "The idea is simple: what if you could take the Xbox360 game and run it on your PC? Is this even possible in principle? I was pondering this question few years ago and that should not come as a supprise that there are some obvious technical difficulties in getting this done:"

    I doubt this is going to work,but i applaud the effort.

    New Citra build tabnk posted over at gbatemp.
    It's a combination of all the recent stuff and pretty fast:

    I probably don't need to say this but as always: it's a unofficial build with stuff in development so expect bugs.

    Personally, I've been using CitraFS - special "tool", working with every Citra version (IMO it's just a twerked version of WindowedBorderlessGaming or sth).

    http://mashakos.com/citrafs.zip

    1) Extract files into yout Citra folder
    2) Set a path to your Citra folder in config.ini
    3) Disable "Single window mode" in Citra's "view" menu
    4) Press F12 to toggle FullScreen on/off
    5) Fap furiously

    *Fake edit: Tool looks for "citra-qt.exe" so some renaman may be nacessary for AVX exes and shit.

    Try this recent build tet666 posted, it's the fastest so far for me when it comes to running Metroid (constant 60 FPS ingame, 2xNative Res).
    AND it has fullscreen out of the box.

    Recent progress has inspired me to try the PS3 emulator. However, although the game seems to run quite well, I'd rather not play Dragon's Crown without the 1.06 update. Any help? Trying to search for the update file itself just brings up discussion of the patch or at best, the files for the vita version.
