RE: Final Fantasy IV : The complete collection
nope sry im still too lazy but i tell u what
i still have old copy of ppsspp with local adhoc and i dont care for testing or switching to new since all games i play locally works on it

be happy you have alternative

and i dont want to sound more retarded than i am if thats possible. probably not but i kinda would switch with you cause i like that no window menus in FF

Try AntiMicro graphical program used to map keyboard keys and mouse controls to a gamepad/controller.

? i am happy. im using the older build to play FF4 as we speak. and i wouldnt mind the no blue dialogue box for the text but the in game menu is completely unusable Smile. dont worry im sure someone with an AMD GPU will try test is sooner then later.

and btw if ur nickname is about Megaman X4 its an awesome game and im playing it right now as well Big Grin. im trying to play the best games of the FF series and megaman X series at the moment Heart

you mean hold up?

"Megaman's Ultimate Armor

First hold down, then pick Megaman at the Player select screen. When you start Megaman's Armor should be outlined in purple. After beating the introduction stage, collect any one of the armor pieces and you will have the ultimate armor. It is best to get the first piece from the Web Spider level.

Play as Dark Zero

When you get to the character select screen, hold the up key while selecting Zero. When you start the game Zero should be wearing his black armor. "

RE: Final Fantasy IV : The complete collection
The change just removed a legacy BGRA path (rather than RGBA) which was used to improve performance on some older NVIDIA cards - it was actually hurting performance on newer cards. Plus the code added complexity that sometimes introduced bugs when making other changes.

In theory, the worst that should happen is that things might get slower.

What this probably means is that some AMD drivers are mishandling RGBA, or else some combination of settings. It might be doable to reintroduce BGRA, but it'd be best to figure out exactly when we need to enable it, because it's pretty decently slower on more modern NVIDIA cards.

With that said, many Windows games use Direct3D 11 - have you tried switching to the Direct3D 11 backend? I would expect it to work better for AMD and Intel cards.

success! sorry i took so long i didn't know/get an email i had another response since your message wasn't a reply to any of mine. anyways i tried the newest build with default settings except i chose Direct3D 11 backend and it works just fine (blue dialogue box and all). thank you so much for your time and response.

so for future i should just stay with using D3D 11 if im using an AMD or Intel card? and you said you would expect it to work better, is that glitch wise or performance wise or both? thanks again in advance.Heart

RE: Final Fantasy IV : The complete collection
Very likely both. At this point, the Direct3D 11 backend is mostly on par with the OpenGL backend.

And on Windows you often see Direct3D 11 perform better (as an API) than OpenGL, in part because Direct3D 11 is likely to be better optimized by the driver vendor.

It may be different for Vulkan (which is sorta like the Direct3D 12 to OpenGL), but our Vulkan backend is still lacking features.

Best settings for FFIV on 1.4.2? (Crashing issues)
So I just updated to the latest version of PPSSPP (1.4.2) and tried running Final Fantasy IV. In previous versions, I got the game to run, but there was a green border around sprites. On the bright side, that's not appearing in the latest version.

On the other hand, the game seems to crash every time I try starting a new game. At first, it starts okay. Shot of the airship fleet, Cecil talking to the soldiers, then when it cuts away to another cut scene, the emulator locks up and crashes.

Are there any ideal settings to prevent this? I'd like to have the text and graphics better rendered, but I don't know if I can have the best of both worlds and still have the game run smoothly.

Try Direct3D 11. This sounds potentially like the same graphics driver bug as above.
