Re: PS2 Mod 2016-18: USB & HDD Loading, PS1 via POPS, Emus

Looks like the new version of Retroarch (1.7.6) now supports PS2.

it currently supports these cores:

* 2048
* FCEUmm (NES emulator)
* QuickNES (NES emulator)
* Picodrive (Mega Drive/Genesis/Master System emulator)

Those cores loaded up super slow for me (not just the menu, but getting the game running), or even not at all. Not sure if it's just a problem on my end, but I'll stick with the other emulators for now.

Let me know if anyone has a better experience with them.

From Libretro Blog:
PS2 NOTES: To run Picodrive and FCEUmm at fullspeed, you need to set Vsync to off. QuickNES will be fullspeed with vsync on.

Is that just in RA settings?

No, I mean the whole emulator navigation. Took forever to load up, took forever to load a game, took forever to get back to menu (if at all). I lost patience before proper game testing (on that end, speed seemed alright (Mega Man 3, Sonic 2), but audio lagged pretty terrible).

I'll have to re-download and try a different usb stick sometime, as it seems like the problem may be on my end (bad formatting or something).

Looks like Retro Archis definitely a work in progress but not too painfully slow from vids I watched. Might just need a clean USB. I know the PGEN gets so slow for me if I run it on my go-to crowded PS2 USB, but is much faster from a clean dedicated drive.

If you're just interested in what the PS2 can do, check out MAME booting from OPL:

I'll eventually get both RA & MAME up...bit crazy on my end right now.
