Title: Mupen64 Plus FZ
Post by: Dr_Bunsen on October 07, 2016, 01:51:06 PM
I just installed Mupen64 Plus FZ on my Nvidia Shield Portable and speed seems good, even in Conker with GlideN64GLES2 at native resolution. However, I can't change the data location to the SD card (Shield is running Android 4.4.2). The parent folder will not allow access higher than /storage/emulated/0. Is this deliberate or can this be changed?

It's deliberate. Even if we allowed setting it to that directory, NDK apps are unable to access the external sd card from Android 4.4 and up.

I do know of a solution, which is to copy the data from the sdcard to internal storage before starting up the core, but it will make game loading significantly slower.

Ok, that's a shame, thanks for the reply anyway.

2 questions, any plan on supporting Vulkan in Mupen FZ? And this is the proper location to be asking about Mupen FZ?

That will purely depend on the video plugin. So if a video plugin comes they did Vulkan and we import it, then yes.

When the core adds support for netplay, I will bring it to Android as well. It's a lot of work trying to maintain the front end already.

Hi,
I am using this thread because my problem is similar to the first one. I can't change the save folder to my external SD (on a GPD XD with Skelton Legacy rom and rooted). I was able to do it using classic Muppen64 and I can do it with many other apps. In the folder selection menu, I can't reach \mnt, I am stucked at \...\emulated\0. I really don't get the thing about NDK and Android 4.4...
Anyway, that's still a great app, thanks for all the works :)
