runahead to FBneo standalone ?
« on: July 25, 2021, 02:10:51 AM »
Hello everyone! greetings from Brazil.  :biggrin:
I would like to know if there is a possibility to add the function (runahead) to FBneo standalone ?
I am currently using the fbneo-1.0.0.3r10404-x64 version
I built a multiplayer arcade (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiGXLd1USaQ) and wish I could use FBneo with the best possible input response. will it be possible in some not-too-distant future? Thank you!  :wink:

Maybe sometime in the future, i wouldn't hope too much for the "not-too-distant" part though, note that we don't accept requests, neither disclose when/if something will be available, we are a small team and we want to work on what we care about at our own pace.
For now, your best option for runahead would be our libretro port.

I'm toying with the idea and might (or might not) have a solution soon. :)

Mario jumps on the first frame aka. I got it to work!
much thanks to:
Byuu/Near's(RIP) writeup: https://near.sh/articles/input/run-ahead
& the impl. in fightcade

It will be a day (or a couple) of polishing before it makes its way into github.

best regards,

The run-ahead feature exposed about 1,000 bugs in the drivers/soundcores.  Yikes.  I'm working on getting most of them fixed though :)
