i want to no wat everyone is using
and please post y u use it
A because that is the most ideal for most games.
Great idea for a poll...
This was written by Mindfield in a different post, it explains everything perfectly....
"Frameskip is the number of frames the emulator will draw per second. Ordinarily games run at a certain speed (frames per second) -- say, 60FPS. When frameskip is set to 0 (no skipping) the emulator must devote a good chunk of its processing time to rendering each frame. If the game runs too slow, you can increase the frameskip. This will skip the number of frames drawn in evenly divisible increments (Frameskip 1 = draw only every other frame, or 30FPS; Frameskip 2 = draw only every 3rd frame, or 20FPS, Frameskip 3 = draw only every 4th frame, or 15FPS, etc.) This can result in a speed boost because it means the emulator doesn't have to spend time rendering those skipped frames, but it comes at the expense of smoothly animated graphics, since you miss out on those dropped frames so it can end up looking choppy with a high enough frameskip. However if you really want to play a game and it just doesn't run fast enough for you, frameskip is your only option.
Note however that this may not be a great help to games that ran pretty slow even on the original hardware, especially games that pushed the processing power to the point where it would slow down in certain places. Even with a frameskip option in an emulator, those places where it slowed down are still going to be choppy."
"I believe that the "a" is auto-frameskip so it works out the ideal value for itself. I could be wrong though."
I think he is correct about "Auto"
i saw it
but still did not no wat to use
someone uses 1
look at the poll
not everyone uses a
A because it was default Please Register or Log in to view images
Please Register or Log in to view images
so far most ppl use a
we need more votes please
A as all games run smooth on it, if a game doesnt i switch to 4.
I am currently playing one game with my frameskip set to A.
so i guess the best is a
A is good, but if someone really wants no delay. Frameskip 1 isn't that bad to use.
Separate names with a comma.
