Expanding the 4mb Expansion Pack?
« on: January 04, 2017, 10:13:37 AM »
Hi guys!
I was thinking about the performance drop of some games that can utilize the 4mb expansion pack for Hi-Resolution video.
Does mupen64plus partitian the memory expansion seperately from the main ram?
Would a 16mb expansion pack improve a Hi-Res game's framerate if the 4mb ram became 20mb?

Or am I way off how the emulator behaves?
 Like when the Expansion Pack is disabled in the emulator settings..
The memory doesn't change but the game doesn't read the pack?

The game won't read the pak if it's disabled in the options. Making it bigger than 8mb won't help because games won't know how to utilize it.
