A Thought

Post by BizzyRok » Sun Feb 09, 2003 10:04 am

Hey I was wonderindg if there is a way to speed up roms. I know that you can patch action replay files on roms. So this is the idea, is there way to het some kind of patch that sppeds up gameplay? If it works then roms can run faster on Dreamsnes.

I really doubt it. What are you going to patch to speed it up? The only thing you can do really to speed them up is turn sound off or to mono.

I was thinking if there was somekind of action replay patch that speeds up games which could be patched onto roms. I know that you can get action replay cheat pathes so if only there was a speed patch

Is anyone else as confused by this idea as I am? I mean, on an SNES console, the games run as intended, so why would a "speed patch" make any sense?

Not to mention, DreamSNES runs the games as fast as it's going to until they are ready to work on speeding it up, so it wouldn't make sense in that respect either.

He means like game speed up code. Like in some older games you can make it speed up. Its just frame skipping.

I have seen a noticeable speed increase when turning sound off, but I see no difference between mono and stereo. If I can play a game with sound Id just assume not play it at all.

Some games are noticeable with mono turned on and transparencies turned off. Also if the game has a mono setting that helps too.

first of all yes mono does make a difference in speed, (very smal diff mind you) and turning transparencies off also increases speed slightly. But still not enough to make a difference when playing games that run at 70%-80%. As for recoding the ROM file to make it faster... well... i dont think that would help much, and would probubly create a big compatibility problem with DreamSNES
