#1 Updated by MayImilae over 2 years ago

  • Regression set to Yes

#2 Updated by JMC4789 over 2 years ago

Note: Does not happen in singlecore, but before this merge, Dualcore worked fine.

#4 Updated by degasus over 2 years ago

I really really doubt this is a valid bug. A commit without any emulation changes but heavy timing content does raise a dual core issue sometimes. This all sounds like a dual core issue which was just very unlikely before.

#5 Updated by Armada over 2 years ago

Based on the comments by degasus I will downgrade this issue. While it is a regression, it is too difficult to solve for the stable and likely the issue was already present.

hello,

I tried to play this game on version 5.0-6031 on ubuntu 16.04 and the game runs better on dualcore. Although I still have the game freeze in different areas and different maps. If I disable dual core then it runs worse.

#8 Updated by Helios about 1 month ago

Yes, single core mode is slower than dual core.
