Having trouble getting it to work.

Post by Hotsuma » Sun Feb 26, 2017 12:28 am

I have been trying for hours to get Reicast to work on my LG G3. I am heavily into emulation and I play them on my PC and Android phone. I have all of the needed files for Reicast and I am using the official build from the Google Play Store. I've watched YouTube videos on how to get it to work and still it will not. Whenever I try to boot up a game, it'll close right away. I took my time to make sure all of the paths were correct and they all are. I have no idea why it won't work on my phone. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

The official version from google playstore does not work properly with LG G3

please look at this issue where it is all discussed by the developers:

https://github.com/reicast/reicast-emulator/issues/615

Its all related to memory allocation in android on the particular phone. The developer skmp has provided a build further down the discussion thread with memory optimizations disabled. This build does run 40% slower but will allow you to use the emulator on the LG G3

Try e2a7029 http://reicast-builds.s3.amazonaws.com/ ... 2a7029.apk, It doesn't use the memory optimization

I also have a LG G3 and the build above does work, but its slow....
