  1. @Zombeaver I wasn't saying that there was anything wrong with my CPU. That was a reply to @Lordmonkus who said that running software mode required a very beefy CPU to use it, and I said that I run software mode all the time, and that mine runs butter smooth at all times without a spec of hiccups, or slow downs whatsoever. Then I said it was probably because I have an i7-4790K with 4.4 GHZ. I was only asking what he would recommend as the minimm CPU required to run software mode at all times for everyone else, because I'm not sure if you actually would need exactly that CPU, or if someone could get away with ones lower than it, and still be able to go all software mode without problems.
  2. It's probably because I have an i7-4790K with 4.4 GHZ. What is the very minimum CPU that you would recommend for going an all software mode route?

    Combining discs in 1 folder for ps1 Roms

    Is swapping discs pretty accurate, and bug free now? No crashes or other dumb things happening that shouldn't happen? Does it just work the way it's supposed to like it would in the real hardware when you use RetroArch?

    So when you're actually in RetroArch and you need to switch discs, can you do it directly within RetroArch without needing to make a save state, back out, and select it from LaunchBox? I've heard of lots of problems with switching discs back in the ePSXe days. Is it fixed now in RetroArch?
  6. So if upscaling causes so many issues, and requires all of this extra work to fix it, then wouldn't it just make more sense to use software mode at all times for as much accuracy as possible, and do the upscaling from an outside source? I mean you could just use software mode on PCSX2, and then use a program like ReShade to do the upscaling, that way you're not making any changes to the actual emulator itself, since ReShade just puts a screen filter/overlay over the program so to speak. https://reshade.me/

    Wait, if you can combine multi disc games into one file, then does that mean that you won't have to worry about the change disc screen that comes up in game when the disc is over?

    Nicely put. You certainly said it in a lot more civil manner than what I would have said to him. I was also going to say something similar about this thread getting so off topic at this point that's it's unbelievable! This is kind of my fault for starting the off topicness by asking you a bunch of questions about my own PC needs while hijacking someone else's thread in the process.

    How do you do that where you only quote small parts of someone's post? It keeps making me quote the whole thing!

    I was asking you how much time you think I have left with it before that inevitability actually comes being the fact that that's the only thing I use it for. That, and browsing the web.

    Questions About Windows 10 For LaunchBox Performance

    It might actually be up to date already now that I think about it. It was actually a replacement to a Gigabyte motherboard that originally came with my PC that failed like only a few months ago after about 5 years of constant use, and being the fact that mobos of that generation are obsolete, and discontinued, then that means no more firmware updates would be published, so my local PC shop probably upgraded it to the latest, and last version of the firmware it will ever have when they installed it in my PC.

    Truth is though, as emulators update to new versions, the minimum required specs will increase, along with the maximum required specs if you mess with things such as upscaling, shaders, and accuracy etc. Right now, emulators such as Dolphin, and PCSX2 among others aren't the very greatest at accurate emulation, and are no where even NEAR being 100% cycle accurate like cycle accurate emulators such as Higan, Mesen, Demul, MAME, CEN64, and many others are etc. So when those emulators get better, and get to the point where's no noticeable difference between them, and the real hardware, and games, and is practically bug/glitch free, and plays the games exactly the way they did on the original hardware, and games then the required specs will probably be insane! Even LaunchBox/Big Box's minimum requirements will increase over time as it continues to update, and gets new features added constantly. I believe @Jason Carr said so himself in a thread once. So I feel like upgrading my PC will eventually be mandatory at some point to continue using up to date emulators, and LaunchBox/Big Box.

    So me updating it it probably won't boost Windows 10 performance, or Big Box performance then.

    Questions About Windows 10 For LaunchBox Performance

    Why do local PC shops automatically update the BIOS firmware then when you buy a new mobo from them, and have them install it in your PC, or buy a custom build from them? Aren't they risking bricking it with out much gain from the risk?

    Will I get anything noticeable from upgrading a BIOS like more performance, speed, stability, security, new cool features etc?
