  1. I just test Batocera on the same laptop last night and today you uploaded this video! What's your settings on PPSSPP? mine can't run this smooth at all.

  2. Of all the emulation devices what would be your go to for multiplayer n64, ps1, dreamcast? Maybe some gamecube.. I feel getting the controls synced and programmed for each console is my biggest challenge.

  3. Black Friday deals are the best. I got an AMD powered Ryzen 3 / Vega 3 based laptop with 32GB of ram for $329 this time around. GREAT black friday deal and the emulation I can pull off with it is beyond real. Thanks for the video!!!!!

  4. These low spec chips with 64bit architecture coupled with lpddr ram spells out bottleneck. So this is not going to 'sound' like it makes sense but from a computer science standpoint its true. These lower spec 64bit chips actually run 32bit operating systems a lot faster then 64bit. WHY ? 64bit requires 2x's the memory to run the same programs. With 64bit YES we have double the addressing space but, it creates a bottleneck because of the limited 2GB of lpddr ram. For instance, If you ran a 32bit Debian image with non-free firmware this machine may surprise you. I had an Acer AspireONE with an AMD C-60 (1GHz) & 2GB of RAM, I was running a 64bit version of Lubuntu lxQT for the hardware support. I never use any (x,l,k,u)buntu unless I have a hardware issue with an older machine or to avoid one. I switched it over to 32bit after some research and the performance is MUCH better, even without utilizing the m.2 SSD slot. That all said they do offer a 32-bit version of Batocera .. They have below the download 'x86 , for PC's Before 2010' , whoever wrote that doesn't understand CPU architecture . Don't take my word for it though, try the 32bit image… If there were 4GB or more RAM , I would suggest staying at 64bit. As far as Windows goes, these type of 'mini' laptops actually do best with Windows 8 , tested and proved. Nothing I am saying here is my opinion , I am going to install Batocera now 32-bit on a comparable machine & I will share my experience in reply section of this comment. IF you have the time ETA PRIME , you might try the same

  5. I might install Batocera on my Haswell micro ATX build, one partition windows 7 32 bit for playing older pc games. And the other partition light gaming emulation. 500 GB SSD with a GTX 660 should be alright. Thank you for these continued emulation tutorial/ideas. Awaiting on a HP t610 Plus Thin Client for Windows XP 32 bit and older gaming, going to try and get Stubbs the Zombie to work on it since the game doesn't like any integrated graphics.

  6. I'm looking for either an inexpensive laptop or desktop that can handle these emulators including the PS2 up to a few pc games like RE2 Remake. Any recommendations on maybe a higher end model of this particular laptop or form factor desktop that won't break my wallet? Thanks
