turning off graphics? - aaronr - 10-27-2013 09:57 PM

Hi.

Is it possible to turn off graphics when playing a game, or at least lower their quality to make the emulator run better on weaker computers. I'm blind so I don't need the graphics at all,, and the audio stutters for most games and I was hoping maybe by turning the graphics off it would make the ggames run better.

Thanks!

There're actualy PSP games for blind people?Or better is the question how do you actualy play PSP games when you're blind?

However I don't think there is an option to turn off graphics.But you can try "fast memory" for example to get more speed.

Via sound.

If you enable the non-buffer rendering, you'll get more speed than buffer rendering.

How do you turn off fast memory? Somoene told me about it but I couldn't find any way to turn it off.

It would be possible to add an option to use our "NULL GPU" graphics, which wouldn't draw anything.

If you set "Frameskipping" to "8", it should draw a lot less, though. This should help the sound smooth out (unless there are bugs emulating the game you are using.)
