4k Dreamcast on a phone. Wouldn't have even thought about running it on a phone sometime in the future 20 years ago.

19-20 years ago I wanted one of these to play DC on the go!

Well I think that seals the deal for me. I should get a controller for my Note 9 and then upgrade to this later for an emulation handheld.

Uh, hell yes! What a sweet kit. Is the remote for VCDs?

Awesome stuff :whoa: Hopefully someone with Yuzu gets a version running that won't require a specific controller

My RCM jig arrived for my Switch this weekend, so I gave Yuzu a try on my RTX 2060. Pokemon Shield runs at a chunky 14 fps :olol: It's crazy to see a current system and commercial games "running" in emulation
How does it run on your system now with the latest version? I just gave Yuzu a try a couple of days ago and am extremely impressed! The only game I've tried so far is Mario Odyssey and it seems to run at 100 percent speed. I was not expecting that! My specs are a Ryzen 5 3600X CPU a GTX 1660 Super GPU and 16GB ram. The only issue I'm having is random crashes but I think allocating more virtual memory may fix it but I'm not sure. I haven't been able to find any solid advice on fixing the crashes. It seems that it runs just fine without crashes for others.

I agree it is pretty wild to be able to emulate a current system. It doesn't seem like that long ago that I was amazed that Wii U was able to be emulated and now Switch is already emulated too! That'd be like if a decent SNES emulator would have came out in 1994. I can't remember when I first got into emulation but I remember I really wanted to play Super Mario RPG but at that time it wasn't supported. Heck even Pilotwings didn't run! I remember when Sega CD and 32X emulation finally became available and 32X ran like crap. I'm thinking it was somewhere around 2003ish before SNES emulators could run games with extra chips and 32X became playable. 12 and 9 years after the console was released. I guess as consoles become more and more like PCs (or tablets in the Switch's case) they become easier to emulate.

Playstation 2 classic “God of War 2” in 4K with Reshade Ray Tracing on the PC

YouTube’s Sanadsk has shared a video, showcasing the classic Playstation 2 GoW game, God of War 2, running on the PC in 4K with Reshade Ray Tracing. This video will give you a glimpse at what a modern-day remaster of this game could look like.

As always, Sanadsk used Pascal “Marty McFly” Glicher Reshade Ray Tracing Mod in order to enhance this game. Naturally, the YouTuber has also used a PS2 emulator in order to run the game on the PC and in 4K resolution.

The end result is really cool and I’m pretty sure that a lot of God of War fans would love to see such a remaster. Hell, even if Sony does not release such a remaster, PC gamers can already experience it on the PC. All they have to do is run God of War 2 on a PS2 emulator with the Reshade Ray Tracing Mod.

Speaking of Reshade Ray Tracing Mods, here is also Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time with Reshade Ray Tracing. You can also find here other PC games with Reshade Ray Tracing effects. These past few months we’ve covered a lot of games. Some of them appear to benefit greatly from it, while others do not. You can also find Reshade Ray Tracing Mod videos for Halo 3, Star Citizen, Resident Evil 3 Remake, Watch Dogs, and Red Dead Redemption 2.
