some upgrades

Postby General_Faliure » Tue Oct 16, 2012 7:19 am

Hello.

I did some upgrades to my cabinet.
I retired the geforce 5200 and added a geforce 6800 with a silent cooler.
Lubuntu got upgraded to 12.04
I also finaly got the overlays working working for vectrex (with mess), but now the sound "crackles".
Mess-colecovision works fine tough, i still have to upgrade mess to the latest version.
Any thoughts on sound issues with mess?

The crackling indicates that your CPU is too slow.

I thought as much.
I thought maybe some tweaking of the mess ini might help.
I am planning for a mainboard/cpu upgrade soon anyway

MeSS is an extrodinarily bad emulator, and generally, my emulator of last resort. I used to use MESS for Super Game Boy, and for colorized Game Boy Classic. I don't now. I used VBA-M for Super Game Boy as it supports that.

The only other linux Vectrex emulator is Parajve, which gives me the same problems.
I guess i'll have to wait till my upgrade or till another emulator comes around.
Too bad a 2000 Mhz cpu has problems emulating a 1.5 Mhz one.
