Issues with very large PNACH files (some codes are ignored)

Hmmm nevermind and sorry for wasting your time. It turns out multiple files were messing with the same stuff and conflicting.

Issues with very large PNACH files (some codes are ignored)

PCSX2 version: 1.5.0 revision 3200 1.6.0 1.7.0 dev-143

PCSX2 options: Irrelevant/changes have no effect on the issue.

Plugins used: Irrelevant/changes have no effect on the issue.

Description of the issue: When working with very large PNACH files (55,000+ cheats), some of the codes are ignored and the codes that are ignored vary depending on the order the codes are loaded in.

How to reproduce the issue: 1) Acquire a copy of Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix (Japanese exclusive game) 2) Follow the setup guide I've written here to apply a Randomizer mod, I use the CrazyCatz translation (On the Valaxor website leave mostly everything on default, turn off Critical Mode): https://bit.ly/KH2FM_Randomizer_Setup_Guide 3) Test the game after following the guide. 4) You should begin with a choice of a Staff, Sword or Shield. Once you've made a choice you should be taken to the Garden of Assemblage with no AP Boost items in the Inventory > Stock menu. Keyblades you find while playing the game will correctly have Abilities assigned to them. 5) Rename the PNACH files to change the order they are loaded in (PCSX2 loads files alphabetically afaik). Now when you enter the Garden of Assemblage you will start with 48 AP Boosts but Keyblades you find in the game won't have any Abilities assigned to them.

Expected outcome All cheats to be applied... and for them to be applied consistently.

Last known version to work: Unknown, 1.50 Revision 3200 is the first to claim support for unlimited cheat codes though. Maybe no one had previously come up with a scenario that involved a lot of cheat codes so it was never fully tested?

OpenGL Frame Pacing Problem for 30FPS games (not FPS related) - Triggerable

PCSX2 version: 1.6.0 v1.7.0 dev 143 gf44f676cc

PCSX2 options:

EE/IOP: Chop/Full VUs: Chop/Extra+Preserve Sign GS: NTSC 60 (instead of 59.94) Speedhacks: MTVU Multi-threaded (MicroVU1) enabled + default speed hacks Game Fixes: Use software renderer for FMV.

Plug-ins used: Default plug-ins GSDX AVX2 OpenGL (Hardware)

Description of the issue: Multi-tasking and then returning to the gameplay window of PCSX2 can induce Frame Pacing issues where it frequently intermittently behaves very poor/stuttery/choppy while FPS remains excellent.

60FPS games like Atelier Iris 3 don't seem to produce the issue. May be a 30FPS exclusive issue. The issue appears to be OpenGL exclusive.

Steps to reproduce? While playing Kingdom Hearts 2: Final Mix, multi-tasking and then returning to the gameplay window of PCSX2 can induce Frame Pacing issues where it frequently intermittently behaves very poor/stuttery/choppy while FPS remains excellent. Potentially need to be either in a place where enemies can spawn or a Save Point is visible on screen.

The problem can be easily induced by clicking on the Taskbar or main PCSX2 window and then the gameplay window, repeating the action can resolve the problem (remains resolved for multiple hours at least, if you don't multi-task again). You may need to perform this more than once to switch the behaviour but generally once is enough to cause the behaviour change.

Mcd001.zip KH2:FM & AI3:GP saves, KH Save is slightly busted but serviceable for reproducing the issue)

Last known version to work: Unsure.

Get WS_POPUP back

Fullscreen Optimizations can be disabled but Microsoft wlil no doubt get rid of that compatibility option at some point which will be a dark day for old video games.

Get WS_POPUP back

I'd love Fullscreen Exclusive mode, so much better than the various issues caused by the DWM. If the program crashes in a way that prevents other programs from appearing over the crashed application window than that is handled by setting Task Manager to "Always on top" mode before opening PCSX2, which anyone using Fullscreen exclusive mode in any application should have enabled as it allows the Task manager to appear over programs that have crashed in such a manner.

While Fullscreen Exclusive mode may not be standard (even though it's worked fine 99.99% of the time for decades), it handles frame presentation a lot better than whatever the Windows DWM does to the majority of programs not carefully programmed to work with it.

Stuttering (seems to be due to WS_POPUP removal?)

Nah it didn't resolve it. I'm not entirely sure what is going on but the emulator works fine and then something, unsure what, causes it to fall in to a bad mode where frame duplication frequently happens. The only way to stop it occurring, at least temporarily, is to do something that makes the screen flicker like opening and closing the graphics plug-in UI.

Unsure if i should make a new report to discuss this or discuss it on the forum.

I was getting periodic long bursts of Frame Doubling with my Nvidia Geforce 1070Ti and OpenGL, I'll give this EnableVsyncWindowFlag a shot to see if it improves the situation.

Also happens inside the mansion.

  • Stand on the ground floor of the lobby near the door on the left (when facing away from the main Mansion entrance).
  • Look towards the space between the 2 staircases.
  • The shadow on the wall of the farthest staircase will flicker as the camera moves.

UI does not go to classic mode.

NuclearFarts has the solution, just need a way to automate it. For some web pages (Videos list on a channel) ?disable_polymer=1 works correct and for others (viewing an actual video) &disable_polymer=1 is needed instead.

The UI changes to Classic for videos and channel pages, not for subcriptions or the homepage.

For everyone having bizarre issues, try clearing your cookies for Youtube and updating your Youtube Classic add-on.

Don't blame this extension, blame Youtube/Google. The company did warn us the old design was going away at some point. If you thought Classic-Youtube was somehow recreating the classic Youtube experience, that's a wrong assumption, it was merely fooling the Youtube server in to delivering the old design to your browser.

Page navigation within an existing classic Youtube session switches to new design

Left Click any video in the vertical "Up Next" or "Related" list of videos to the right of a currently playing video and Youtube will switch to the new Youtube design. Middle-Clicking to open the content in a new tab will retain the old Youtube design.

My theory is: I guess the whole website is an "application" and left clicking things over there will load the content within the existing application instance and that's when it switches to the current website design (no interception by this add-on that forces the old design to be used) where as Middle Clicks open a fresh instance of the website "application" that's instructed to use the old design.

@xxzefgh Thanks!

Also, have you removed that blue bar, which I mentioned in the title name? Since, now, when I visit YouTube, with uBlockOrigin and uMatrix, turned off, I no longer have it?

I too no longer have it appear and I've disabled my adblocker and Enhanced Tracking Protection to confirm they aren't causing its eradication.

The instructions say to acquire this from the downloads page, but what is the downloads page? There's nothing under Releases and no links to other websites...

Hmmm, I guess you mean the green Clone or Download button since there is a pre-compiled DLL in the repository instead of source code.

Currently unidentified ROM's will utilize 8MB of Memory even though the Default is set to 4MB by default.

SRAM Inaccuracy Using Recompiler, Stale Data Seems to Persist

they already have to switch the default RAM size to 8MB to even run the ROM

They don't need to. Unknown ROMs already default to 8MB RDRAM in the current dev builds

So... are Defaults now ignored when loading an Unidentified ROM? The Default defaults to 4MB but unidentified ROM's which have never previously been interacted with by PJ64 use 8MB creating a bit of a disconnect.

Alternatively the Default needs to be updated to default to 8MB.
