Performance problems
 
i have 2 laptops both with 1 gb of ram and 1.6 ghz of processing power
one is intel atom, the other intel centrino (older laptop)
project 64 does not run as well on my new atom laptop as it does on the centrino one
i play it on both with the same settings though so i'm confused, using rices video plugin

i wonder why...... oh wait, no i dont.

i know it isn't very powerful (almost to the point of embarrassment), but is there a solution?

turn down the resolution and gfx settings.

it would be funny if you said rtfm, because the manual says 1.2GHz :P

Intel Pentium or compatible

the Centrino has a Pentium class processor
the Atom is not pentium class.

atom 1.6 beats pentium 4 1.6 in benchmarks

still don't understand why people have speed trouble though, runs fine on pentium iii 650MHz for me

please don't flame me

I don't have an Atom so I can't speak to with any specific degree of information here, but I borrowed a friend's Atom N250 years ago (which is a fair bit slower even in terms of graphics compared to a modern N450 class netbook) and it worked reasonably well. I was actually pleasantly surprised but I only briefly tested ocarina of time and mario64, so I can't say they are fully playable as the geometry and texturing in the intros are fairly basic, not to mention the recompiler performance required is as well.

Anyway I'd be curious if you could elaborate more on what you don't find working well, what games you are testing, what the specs of your netbook are, resolutions, etc. If you are CPU limited you might want to try out Azimer's Audio HLE plugin, he did a really good job on that, it's top notch, and it's generally faster than our built-in RSP emulation; so if your CPU is the limiting factor it could push things to where they need to be.
