Imagine the Dolphin Wii emulator on the PS3 with move support


Dolphin is already slow in a modern decent computer I don't think it can run on a PS3.

My brother has a 2.2GHz dual core notebook with a for notebook standards decent graphics card and NSMB Wii, Mario Party 8 and a few other games run at playable 30 FPS.

To give you some idea of how much it's able to do, he can play Team Fortress 2 @ 800x600 and CoD4 @ 1024x768 with everything set on medium or low of course and both games struggle to get constant 30FPS.

Pretty sure the PS3 is stronger than that.


I'm not so sure, DKKC goes slow on my Core i7 720Q 4GB RAM Nvidia GT230, this laptop can play Arkhanm Asylum and Dead Space with maxed out graphics, 2 PS3 games.

All it would need would be a team of devs willing and able to rewrite the Dynarec for it. That's what the guys that're developing the PS1 emulator and N64 emulator for the Wii have done, they basically took a couple of working emulators for the PC and Gamecube (can't remember which ones now though), ported them and ripped the guts (the Dynarec - a Dynamic Recompiler) out of it and bunged in their own improved versions.


Yea but usually a console is not capable of emulating the last generation one, PS2 had SNES emulators but never had any for N64, Saturn or Dreamcast.



I asked this in a similar thread, but has anyone actually pirated a ps3 game yet?



Everyday I'm hustlin'.

blu ray burners are going to fly off the shelves as people start pirating games!

The vast majority of PS3 games fit just fine on a DL-DVD and I believe the rest can be stored and run directly from a HDD on a hacked system.

Blu-ray isn't needed at all.

I want to get an honest response here.

 

Who loves their PSP?

If so, why did Sony add an internet browser?

If so, why did Sony add RS feeds?

If so, why did Sony add internet radio?

If so, why did Sony add new video formats? (Originally only had some bullshit .mpv or something where files were in 2 parts)

If so, why did Sony add custom themes?

If so, why did Sony add WMA and Flash after initially adding the browser?

 

 

I'll tell you why. To combat custom firmware. If not for custom firmware who knows if PSP would still be around and if so, if it would have all the features it has today.

So stop hating on things you know very little about. I am convinced that the VGC community knows very little about the benefits of the homebrew community. A community that is doing nothing wrong seeing as how after  paying $300-600 for a PS3 they should be free to do whatever the hell they please with the console they purchased.

Yes piracy is a negative to opening up a console, but stop focusing on only the negative and for once look at how many positives it brings.

 

For example, ask the XBox community what they thought about XBMC for all those years.


Before any hacks were announced, PS3 got:

DivX support
Web Browser Improvements
On-board store and PSN account settings
Photo Gallery
Video Editor
Video Store
Ad Hoc Party for PSP
Download Manager
Netflix Support
User generated content based games (LBP, UT3, Modnation)
In-Game XMB
Support for Cross game invites
Support for custom soundtracks

And much more. You can't really say the improvements were to combat custom firmware anymore than you can say there were to simply improve the system or keep it relevant. You can't say that those improvements weren't going to come if the homebrew scene never popped up. Upgradeable firmware for future improvements was something that SONY spoke of for the PSP and PS3 from the day they were announced.

I'm not so sure, DKKC goes slow on my Core i7 720Q 4GB RAM Nvidia GT230, this laptop can play Arkhanm Asylum and Dead Space with maxed out graphics, 2 PS3 games.

and which Dolphin version are you using ?

If you have the newest revision (~6750) it should run like a dream.
Also activate EFB copy to Texture instead of RAM. This usually gives 25% more speed or so in most games.

I get 60FPS out of DKCR even with 4x AA on my E8400 @3.6GHz, 4GB RAM and a HD4890.

And you can't even get 30FPS ? Do you use a 32-bit OS ? ^^

I'm going to try your setup, I'm really not very tech savy I just tried the setup from some guy I saw in youtube. Thanks in advance dude.

If it still doesn't run that well set the Frame Skipping to 1 or 2.

You can find it under the Emulation tab in between the File tab and the Options tab
