Why emulation on W10M/WP is so bad?

Q: Why emulation on W10M/WP is so bad?

There's a problem I can't understand. I downloaded four GBA emulators(VBA8, VBA10, Purple Cherry X, etc.) on my L640. I started a game Pokemon Emerald and was shocked. In every emu sound is distorted and makes headaches, in VBA8 fps is lower than 45fps, in VBA10 and Purple Cherry X - lower than 40 and 30 fps. By the way, VBA10 makes phone really hot, although fps is lower, sound is even worse quality and app is made for W10M so all this makes no sense, because VB8 on W10M works miles better, but it's still unacceptable. Why? Because my old PSP with 333MHz processor and 64 MB RAM emulated GBA games almost perfectly.
Okay, there could be some reasons like bad coding and small number of WP/W10M users, but, come on, even GBC games (like Pokemon Crystal) on those WP/W10M GBA emulators are not emulating great, sound is distorted too, but, at least, are listenable. But no excuses, because I emulated pokemon crystal on my iPod Nano 1st gen. which has 80MHz cpu and there is no sound distortion at all... All this just makes no sense.

A: Why emulation on W10M/WP is so bad?

It's simply because development is lacking. I hope that with the ability to port Win32 apps to the Store and all that, we get to see VBA-M soon enough.

Just threw this article together, I want all the brain's in this forum to chip in and if there is anything missing from this article (at all!) let me know ASAP, in this thread.

Previously we wrote a long post about Best Laptops for Hackers, which included a run-down on the best laptops for programming and penetration testing (pen-testing). This article turned out to be very popular even though it wasn't exactly intended to be that, now we are proud to finally publish the long-requested article of 'Best Laptops for Video Game System Emulation'.

The idea of this post is to give an accurate summary of which laptops are suited for, or adept at emulating various consoles and their games, and which ones also can easily perform these duties, at the lowest possible cost.

Now obviously, the better hardware you have the better your system will be at emulating other hardware/software. That doesn't necessarily mean a more expensive laptop. Where the demands of hacking and pen-testing demand vital and significant internal storage, the prerequisites for game emulation are generally just a good graphics processor, and good RAM/CPU.

Your laptop should also be in good working order and not muddled with high-risk pirated downloads and large bits of video. To emulate efficiently, you should also have as little processes and programs running in order for the emulator to run smoothly.

These are all common sense tips but...

I am not sure if I have missed anything about it, and I haven't heard much since last year when it showed up in some developer preview versions on certain phone models. I am really hoping it was not taken away from the Windows Mobile platform, as it was an awesome feature that Microsoft started (and which Apple stole). Does anybody know of it still exists on Windows 10 Mobile? Thanks for any information.

Any ideas what can be done? try a soft reset: Soft Reset is holding the Volume Down & Power buttons until the phone vibrates and reboots (about 10 seconds). This rebbots the phone with a cleared out RAM and Cache. No data is lost. It is good for when the phone freezes or you experience a glitch of some sort.
Then check for app updates in store

I've searched all over the internet to find an answer to this question to no avail. Just people saying 32-bit programs work on 64-bit, which is not true.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and I'm trying to play good ol' King's Quest games but unfortunately they will not run on a 64-bit OS and as far as I know there is no 32-bit in the compatibility settings.

When I try to run any King's Quest game I get the following error:

The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher.Click to expand...

I'm fairly sure Sierra never released any patches that make King's Quest Collection compatible in 64-bit. Anybody know a solution?

I had a chance to try Vista today and found myself pleased overall with the functions and features on it. I was curious though-- unless this has been changed, Vista supposedly uses emulation on games and programs that are designed to use DirectX 9 and earlier. I was wondering how much performance is lost with the emulation. I'm a huge gamer, and my FPS is a big deal to me. If anyone could let me know, I'd really appreciate it.
 

A:The DirectX emulation

"Vista supposedly uses emulation on games and programs"
The statement should read that older games and programs that are NOT compliant with Vista may need to be run in a Compatibility mode.
It is NOT a Vista issue, but the fact that some software was NOT designed to run on Vista.

If you are a GAMER, then you may have hardware issues also, the same issues here as with software. Some high level gaming hardware will need new drivers and upgraded.

I would make sure that all of your hardware and software are compliant, or wait until your games have been updated.

I have an application that runs in a DOS environment in Win 98. I am trying to move it to an XP machine. The application uses a special serial port driver that was being loaded in Config.sys (under Win98). Since XP does not have a Config.sys as such, how can I emulate the load of this driver in XP?

Definition used in Config.sys: DEVICE=C:\COMMDRV.ONE 4096,1
 

A:Config.sys emulation in XP

From Microsoft, concerning Windows XP & it's limited DOS support:

Block mode device drivers are not supported. Block devices are not supported.

The 16-bit Windows subsystem on an x86 computer supports enhanced mode programs; it does not, however, support 16-bit virtual device drivers (VxDs)

Any application or device which involves using a 16-bit driver cannot be used on XP or later.

The driver you referred to in your post is almost certainly a 16-bit driver.

The main problem is that XP & later do not have a "real" DOS mode as found in earlier versions.
XP, Vista & Win 7 use a virtual or emulated DOS which has several limitations compared to the "proper" DOS that old-timers will remember.

You can certainly install "proper" DOS on a separate partition, bearing in mind though that you'll need to find compatible DOS drivers for the other devices that you need to use in that environment. Since Win98, all my DOS apps & drivers have ended up in the rubbish bin as I've managed to find alternative Windows apps for everything I need. DOS was a good learning tool for me 12 years ago, & I still know most of the commands, but I no longer need it.

I also have a FreeAgent 750 GB external hardrive for backups on the desktop. This external drive has worked fine for more than a month. But as soon as I installed the new printer I received error messages for the FreeAgent that it failed to save data and it may be lost "$Mft" and my FreeAgent goes off line and the USB port is no longer recoginzed. And the printer will not work either. If i reboot without the FreeAgent and I try to print a document one of two things will happen. You either see it spool through the printer window it in the STATUS column it says "printing" then quickly changes to "deleting" and nothing happens. Or I get a message that says "document failed to print" and my printer will spit out page after page of garbage. I quickly cancel the print job before I waste paper and ink.
I have unistalled and installed the printer several times. Each time I uninstall the printer the FreeAgent works just fine. Install printer, the FreeAgent no longer works and the printer goes haywire.

Let me apoligise in advance for the length of this post, I'd rather include too much info rather than too little.

I'm not a complete noob in the world of computers, being my friends "tech support guy" back home, but my problem is completely outside of my experience. I'm currently studying abroad in Austria for a semister, and so I brought my old HP zt1195 with winXP sp1. While downloading Cakewalk (mostly legally; I own the software at home, and deleted it from that PC before I left but forgot to bring the install CD) I ended up with a suite of virus'. Everything that I had ever heard of and then some; Sasser, VX2's, etc. After a few days spent running and re-running ad-aware, spybot, spy-sweeper, hijackthis, registry mechanic, and killbox, I said those dangerous words: "Well, it will either work perfectly, or won't boot at all..." Guess what happened.

In the course of getting rid of sasr I broke my lsass. I've tried safe booting, LGC booting, everything, but I still hang with the error "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022) LSASS.exe." The pointer moves fine, but nothing ever is going to happen.

Being the fool that I am, I didn't bring my XP CD with me, but a nice Austrian in my dorm Neroed an XP sp1 CD for me so I can try to repair the damage. I've changed my boot order to CD/DVD, but run into the non-emulation boot error. I don't know if this is the result of using an im... Read more

Someone once gave me a link to a program that would emulate Win98 (when you're running Win2k) so that you could run programs that would not run on 2k. I looked and can't find it anywhere. Anyone have a link?

Hello, I gotta say, I feel a little late to this technology table, but must say am eager to learn more about exactly what it does and how to best go about setting it up, for example if I had to reinstall the OS, could I have these DVD images on its own separate partition and reintegrate them into the new install once done.

This all came about by reading a blurb about CD DVD emulation and did search here and found many threads, actually too many. Most where of specific questions or advanced setups that at this point don't help me. I have only an idea about what exactly they do.

Its my understanding they create a virtual CD DVD rom drive for the purpose of loading game CD / DVD's to the HD so as not to need the disc to start the game.

Is that the gist of it??? If so, I'm very much interested in them as I'm always searching for the discs when needing them.

Here's some that I've found (some free, others not) ...free is better at this experimental point.

1. Magic Disc
2. DAEMON Tools Lite
3. Magic ISO
4. Virtual CloneDrive

I'm sure theres more but thats a start.

What I need is an understanding about setting up the partitions/HD.
Do I need a partition for each V disc?
Can I make a 100gig partition and load about 6-7 DVD games to it?
Is a new shortcut needed to direct the V disc program to the game .exe?

Any help in this would be greatly appreciated. If theres a tutorial please post link, couldn't find one.

Thanks for reading and any help

A:OK So I'm Behind the times, CD/DVD Emulation?

To build the image I usually use Imgburn (freeware). You can actually make your own disc structure with it. To mount it, I use Daemon Lite.

You don't need to make new drive for each Virtual Disc. Of course you can make multiple, but what for? One is enough and you can swap the discs at will by using the Virtual Drive manager (e.g Daemon's).

When ever I try to mount COD4 onto virtual drive in Vistax64 using various emulation apps ( they all do the same thing) it just mounts it to the drive, doesn't bring up the auto run and when I try to run the setup.exe manually it just says that the program you are trying to install is not compatible with this version of windows.
Yet I thought COD4 was compatible with x64.
Any ideas?

What in the blue hell is this "No emulation" message I'm seeing right before the "Press any key to boot from CD..." message appears on my new machine. I just got a new hard drive and motherboard today and plugged everything in correctly and then it tells me this. And of course all my jumper settings are right and what not. I have the cables plugged into the right places, trust me. Every other board I've posted on everyone says that stuff. So my question is if everything is plugged into the right places, the hard drive was formatted and everything, then why, how, or what is causing this message and how can I fix it. In advance I'd like to thank anyone who helps me I really need to get my machine up and running. Thanks.

Hey guys,

obviously I've tried quite a few different things with no luck.

I'm using a macbook pro but running a VMfusion which is a

emulation system for windows. So on my 'pc' I'm running XP

which has apparently been infected. One big thing is that my

control + alt + del seems to be killed by the virus. I've tried

disabling ctrl alt del option, entering msconfig in the run box and

a few other things. The box will pop up and then get killed after a

second. Frustrating. I'm posting my HJT log as well as a picture of a

.exe that I know is BS. This is very aggravating because I can't get

to the damn processes to stop running them. I've also run multiple

scans with spy bot and adware. Of course they find malware threats

and delete them. But upon a rescan they find more...even when my

computer is disconnected from the network. I would just delete the

windows emulation and start up a new one but I'm an insurance

adjuster and have very sensitive data and programs running.

Any and all help would be much much appreciated!

Ok. HJT:

Go to control panel > system and click on the hardware profile tab.
Click on the copy button, naming the copy whatever you wish.
Now you will have two hardware profiles, Original configuration and xxx.
Click on the device manager button, highlight the SB emulation (Sounds), and click on
the "remove " button.
You will be prompted as to which configuration do you wish it to be removed.
Select the original configuration.
You will be asked if you want to reboot, select No.
Remove anything else you wish to remove. ( You can remove just about
anything that you wish)
When you are done removing items, return to the hardware profiles, delete
the configuration you created.
Reboot.
If at any time you wish to replace items that you removed, simply run the
hardware wizard, you will then see a list of items that you removed. Select
you ones you wish to replace and click OK.

A:CD Emulation Programs?

Hi Matt, they're basically programs that enable you to mount virtual images...programs such as Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120%, CloneCD, Nero, UltraISO etc etc. You would generally know if you have installed any such programs but there is a chance a CD burning program may have installed one by default during its installation.

A quick and easy way to see if you have a virtual drive installed is to see how many CD/DVD drive icons you have in My Computer.

Depends on the version of Win7 that you have (and the capabilities of your system).

The following are all free:
You may be able to use the Win7 inbuilt XP machine
You may be able to run Virtual PC2007
You may be able to run VirtualBox
You may be able to run the VMWare player

When setting the Virtual Machine up, you may want to allocate extra RAM to it - so that the programs will function better.

I work for an agency that uses a public safety program that only works with IE8/9, which support for these browsers is being dropped. The county we are based in is "supporting" this program from a major vendor that apparently sees no need to
get it updated to support IE11. I started messing around with running the program in IE11 through various methods. I first tried Enterprise Mode, but that will not work with files that are on the local drive. I ended up adding a meta tag to all of the
HTML files that renders the pages in IE emulation mode. When clicking an event button it pulls current data from county servers and populates a table, you can then click on an event for more information. The second time you click an event button the table
is shrunk down to about half the width of the browser window and clicking an event results in an error. Close the program then reopen and it works initially again, then error the second time. This never happens when running in IE 8 or 9, only when
using IE11 in emulation mode. I suspect there is an issue with how JavaScript is being handled but don't know for sure. If you specify running IE9 emulation for example, does that mean HTML and JavaScript are handled exactly the same as that version
of the browser? Anybody have any other ideas on emulation? We are kind of stuck in a bad place with this as multiple municipalities all rely on this. Thanks

I was wondering if there was anything like the 3 button emulation I've gotten so used to in Linux available for Windows. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, it effectively adds a third button to a two button mouse by sending a middle click when you press both buttons at once. I've become quite dependent on it after spending so much time in Linux, so any help would be much appreciated.

Getting a mouse with 3 buttons isn't an option for me since I have a laptop and don't want to haul a mouse around everywhere.

Hey all,

Ive got a problem I put myself in.

My old windows xp home edition drive C is messed up by some virus, it is set up in a 120GB hd (hd 1). I installed a new 120GB hd (hd 2) and work off windows xp pro on it. So recently I decided I should clean out that useless drive so I deleted all the stuff on hd 1, partitions and everything through a windows xp pro bootup cd. But as I restart trying to get to hd2 i get the error message 'no emulation - apti cd rom' something like that during boot up. Usually I can get to a menu to pick out which hd I want to run, but not anymore.

so

I installed windows xp pro onto hd 1 and now it just automatically boots up to that, but I do not want hd 1 with windows on it at all. I want to start up with hd 2.

the problem is starting windows xp pro on hd 2, cuz I cant even get to it.

thanks, any help is great help.

ok, so it turns out that I sorta fixed my own problem... yay.

I guess having 2 windows installed wont kill me.

okay well. I have a 533w Hp (Yes I know.. Its 7 yrs old..). With no Operating System. I have a Windows XP Disc (It works.. I've tried it on other computers). I put the disk in to try to boot it. But before it boots, it says :

Boot from atapi CDROM:
No emulation

Then it boots and the screen turn blue and the disk loads the drivers. After everything is loaded, it comes up to the partition part of the installation process (The part where It asks me in what partition I want XP to be installed.) Well When I try to hit enter (So its installs
on the partition) it shuts down. I tried doing it again but it keeps shutting down. I put the "Cd Rom" option on "1" in the boot sequence.

Thanks in advance.

okay, so i found myself an emulator program, yay.\
and it would be this one.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B95...9oc1JPeU0/view

now, from what I read in the readme, i DO actually need a copy of the game to make this work.(so i think that means that legality is covered) however i run it and it says that the following .dll file is missing.

enginelde.dll

now, i downloaded this, i put it not only in the directory with the executable for the emulator, but i ALSO put it in the system 32 folder. yet, the program still can't find it. so i'm obviously doing something wrong. help?

Edit: i also put it in syswow64 . no change.

A:Game system emulation

Hi cookiesnmilk :)

Usually, the program is supposed to provide the needed .dll if it's not native to Windows. In that case, endinelde.dll is not. I took a look inside the .rar archive, and I cannot find it either, so I would ask the developpers to take a look and re-upload the emulator with the .dll included in it.

I'm getting 2 print jobs starting whenever I turn on my Win2000 laptop.

In the printer window, the 2 jobs are labelled:
document name - No Document Name, Status - Spooling - Printing, Owner - Administrator, Size - 264MB/264MB, Port - lpt1:

and:
document name - DOS Emulation Print Job, Status - Spooling, Owner - system, pages - 60,000+ (and going up!), size - 372Mb (and going up!), no port specified.

I had read on Microsoft page about a large job and it suggested waiting till the print job had finished (no printer physically attached right now) and then to delete the job and the printer.

What's going on ... and how do I stop this CPU waster?

Thx. to all in advance.
 

A:massive DOS Emulation Print Job

Here was the problem.

One of my applications for some reason needs a printer when it starts up (why I don't know).

So, killed the jobs in the queue (this happened everytime I started the computer), then deleted the printer.

The application complained, so I created another printer and all is okay now ... so I suppose Microsoft is right in saying to do that exact thing.

Must be a known 'feature'.

I am trying to use a UNIX emulation program to connect my Windows 98 computer to my UNIX system. The emulation program needs a "COM Port" to connect to the network. (Usually you use the program to access via the modem remotely. But the program can be used in a LAN) Is it possible to make my Ethernet card my "COM Port"?.
 

A:UNIX Emulation Program

why not just install cygwin, its a unix/linux emulator for windows. i use it all the time.
it can be used for a *nix emulator, but i mainly use it for sshing.
it uses all devices on your computer like normal (providing you install the support for it)
it may take some time to dload the install (i found the nasa server to be faster), i think its worth it.
u can download it at http://www.cygwin.com/
if you just need a program to ssh, you can also use putty[http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/]

there is another way of running a ful blown emulation of linux or any os you want, buy a copy of VMware. it allows you to run almost any os you can think of in a window that acts like a seperate computer. you can even tell it to share the same devices.
have fun and good luck

I have a Dell Latitude D620 with 2 USB ports and a Serial port. I need one of the USB ports to emulate a serial port. How do I do that?

A:USB Emulation of a Serial Port

I'm not sure that can be done or why one would want to do it.

If you could give more details someone else might have a idea.

What are you trying to hook to what and for what reason.

Hiya

Microsoft Windows CE .NET just got smarter and faster! With the release of Windows CE .NET 4.2 Emulation Edition, a minor update to Windows CE .NET Emulation Edition, you can design and prototype platforms and applications for Windows CE .NET using a Microsoft Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional workstation without additional hardware investments.

Notes:

Developers who want to target specific supported microprocessors or hardware development platforms should instead order the Microsoft Windows CE .NET Evaluation Version.
To benchmark Windows CE .NET, or evaluate all features of the product, you should target a physical hardware device using the Evaluation Kit or Full product version. The Emulator does not support all hardware, nor does it reflect the true performance of a device based on Windows CE .NET.

Product Features:

Platform Builder for Windows CE .NET 4.2
Emulation Board Support Package (BSP) Support (including retail and debug binaries)
Latest Emulator Technology (including Virtual Switch Networking support, faster performance, drive mapping support, and Optomized DMA support)
Shared Source for Windows CE .NET 4.2 Source Code (including integrated Source Browsing and the CE Test Kit Source)
Software Development Kit

What Can You Do with the Emulation Edition?

Windows CE .NET offers powerful new features that enable developers to rapidly prototype smart mobile devices. For those that are interested in evaluating Windows CE .NET 4.2 and either don't ... Read more
