Today I tested the emulator on my galaxy sii lite/s advance. First, on the loading screen that appear on the first time the emulator is run, and the data is extracted to sd card, the % counter go back to 0 every time i rotate the screen. And Zelda Ocarina of time need to disable depth test to not flicker.

Other than that, I'm looking forward for version 3.0 and the new gonetz plugin, gliden64..
Wow, another s advance user... why s2 lite?? Are you from Brasil too...
You can always try the glide plugin, but in our phones it requires frameskipping

Yes, I'm from Brazil, and I'm also part of the emulator translation team. The glide64 is a good plugin, but even super mario 64 run slow on it. With glide64, most games run without any graphics glitchs, but are too slow to be playable. With rice plugin, most games runs fast, but also have some glitches.

Another thing I forgot to mention, the loading screen took almost half a minute to complete on my gs advance. It might be a good idea to speed up loading in version 3.0.

Not much can be done to speedup the extraction.  It's unzipping the data files that are bundled with the app.  The only real solution is to reduce the amount of bundled data... which we did a while back when we overhauled the backend of the touchscreen skins.

Reduce the render resolution to 720p
Settings -> Video -> Rendered resolution -> 960x720
Settings -> Video -> Screen scaling -> Zoom
. Hello, thank you, the speed works better in " killer instinct gold " but still one sees that it works to 20fps and goes down suddenly to 1fps, this indicates that something goes badly, also happens to me in " 1080 SnowboardIng, banjo kazooie, banjo tooie ". And playing to " zelda majoras mask " it is blocked initially when that of the mask appears (I proved all the plugins and in all there is the same mistake). Generally all the games work well with the last plugins and in native resolution (less the killer, and others). It can be for the processor quad core rk3188, or is for incompatibility of plugins? I wait that they could do that it works in quad core mali 400mp4. A greeting

Published 2.4.3
Now it is better in speed " kiler insting gold " but anyhow one sees that this works to 20fps and goes down suddenly to 1fps, this indicates that something goes badly, also there happens to me in " 1080 Snowboarding, banjo kazooie, the banjo tooie ". And playing " to zelda majoras mask " it is blocked initially when that of the mask appears (I was playing with all the plugins, the same mistake happens). Generally all the games work well with the last plugins and in the native resolution (less the killer, and others). It can be for the cuadcore of processor rk3188, or is for the incompatibility of plugins? It can do that android works in one tablet:quadcore 1.6ghz (rk3188), quadcore mali400MP4, android 4.2, ips retina, 2048*1536px. Might you optimize for my processor? I am grateful for his attention, a greeting

I think I found a regression in more recent builds with F1GP2, the right OSD keeps dissapearing and only stays on screen when paused.
Also gles2n64 is now causing the background and sky to flicker black when Depth test is on, this only effects my Mali gpu device though, Adreno is uneffected.

I played with the Golden Eye 007, at the beginning when there are few enemies going well. But when you start to see enemies, the game starts to go very wrong and very lag and unplayable. The DOOM 64 lag when moving, change goes perfect on map żż??

PLUGIN: Gles2glide64.

What device are you running on?  Are the other video plugins any faster?

My device is a Samsung Galaxy SIII Mini. With the other plugin does not work, there are very serious graphics errors. Only works with which I have commented.

Any new useful KitKat features (like immersive mode) will be incorporated in the version 3.x series.  If you have any other specific KitKat features you would like to see incorporated into the app, let us know.  The problem you are referring to with the rotated screen is a known driver bug, not actually a bug with the emulator.  As such, it may or may not be possible for us to write a work-around (best solution would be for the manufacturers to fix their bug).  Follow progress on this particular problem in Issue #345

@asturias3636 There's a longer discussion thread about the rotated screen here as well.

Hello, what's good for the plugin mali 400 mp4, I use gles2n64 the "killer instinct gold" and graphics yet seen pixelated activated, all distorted, but if I disable all options looks good everything except the back of the stage.
