How to PLAY Sega Saturn Games on LOW END PCs!
Good. Day guys austere, day and in this what's the day we'll, get in stuck straight back into a little bit of Sega Saturn, now you guys watch my video the other day and you kind of loved it you had a lot of feedback and many, of you wanted to play Sega, Saturn on your pcs well, there's lots of options available to you and we're going to talk about them all in, this video today I'm, also going to take you through setting this up exactly. As I did the other day except, this time on a PC. So you know exactly how to work this emulator, and though, all the information, about all the other emulators, see you ready to rumble however if you just steer to watch your tutorial, I'll put links straight, to it in the description down below and, you're. Good to go over. Than that let's. Get, stuck, in. So. You wanna, play Sega Saturn on your PC, well it's, a good day indeed because, like we talked about we're, gonna get it up and running today on our pcs now, there are various different emulators that you can use to emulate Sega Saturn and I'll talk about more about that kind of stuff at the end of the video and while I'm showing you this. One because. This, is for, me a very good option nowadays. Especially for, the lower powered, computers, the. Other options, are very highly powered, in other words you need a very, good PC in, order to run this very old system, or, they're. Not very compatible and again I'll talk about that more at the end but for now I want to get you set up with your, bow see the, one that I covered the other day on the video now on that video I was covering more single board computers, I was talking more low-end, devices such. As Android, phones arm, devices, you, can play it on there of anything, that's, the great thing about you bow see I did, give a link in that video but it was guiding to the website which you may have thought may have misled you but it's not it is actually the website that I wanted to go to and, I'll explain that now okay, this is the official website for, you bow see now, this, isn't what I linked but is the official, one if it was to Google your bow so this is where you would go now, in here as you can see the right-hand side the last update was 2016. It's a very dated, version of this is the original nobody's. Bothered with it in some time which is a shame to be honest because, it did make a very promising start it's, just that the other M dates is overtaking it and this one kind of fell off the radar now, the great thing is that this is open. Source or. Anybody, can contribute anybody. Can add anybody, can do anything they want to get this up and running and, help. The scene out it's, also unlike. The other emulators, available, on different platforms like, we talked about single board computers, Odroid. Possibly. The Raspberry Pi in the future who knows also. Available on Mac Windows Dreamcast, Linux, is pretty much anything that you can throw at it it's a very compatible, emulator. That can be played on very, different devices but as we talked about last update was 2016. She's useless to us because, it's gone a lot further since, then now, in the description down below like, the one I did link in the video is this the, ouu. Bow sit is a fork from the original, now, this, is an awesome one and if it was great download on the Play Store this is the one that you would get also. It's the one that was forked over to, the old Droid the one that lets you show it in that video and yes. You can play it on Windows, he stays here at the top which is kinda misleading the. Fact that this project is focused on the Android, version of you bow see which it is theoretically, but. There are also Forks, for the Windows version if, you also the Downloads tablet attack here and you, scroll down these, are all the Google. Play stuff, as. You can see bit the Windows version this. Version is, called Yabba, sanshiro, which, is the, forked version, for windows that's the one that was forked over to. The one that was on the old road which is awesome, break, news and. Everything. That was featured in that video will be more or less identical for. The kind of gameplay. That you would get using this emulator if not better because you're using the extra grunt from your pc rather than a single board computer, so, if you want to get it up and running using, this emulator, that is the one to choose from now, the great thing is that because it is pc, there are other options, available, to us even more than this so.
This Is the official one and i would go for this if I was you but there is also another choice which is almost identical but, it's breaking through even, faster, this one released, on the fifth of the fifth 2018. But in the, description down below I'll also guide you to this place here which is the github for, F cares, about, C now, I believe this is called cronuts, and, basically. He's forked, away from the Debbie Meyer build, in, other words the sanshiro, and also. It's, fought from the original, yellow suit so he's taking all the best bits you put it all together and he said this is the one spin on it now there's not much that can be done from the official. Github, because unless, you know what you do when you build github actual. Files but. Someone, on the internet has, been as always and they've actually built, it so, again I'll put links in description down below, this website, here which is mu Tata, a good little forum, as well by the way guys and he's. A French guy I believe it translated this page and. Basically. Is put all the information that you need to know there's no official site for anything, like that all those I can find on that interwebs. Is this official build, from them now. I believe somewhere else here. He's, given. Advice as to what is actually done in this version which differs from the others so he's, added more support for Windows added, support for STB games these, are the arcade, variations. Of the Sega Saturn games, some. Of the games be used as a kind of engine to run so they come from problematic. Which means that with the zippered support from this emulator you probably get more compatibility. Also. Is included, extra, resolutions. Extra. Upscaling filters. All that kind of stuff except the fantastic. You've, got a Chronos. Interpreter, which you've rebuilt less CPU usage. Awesome, he's fixed some graphical problems and there's more options for you video which is great. So what we're do is actually installed, this one today so, again in description down below guides to the section of this website all you need to do is click on it, this. Is almost identical to the ouu, policy as well by the way guys so, if you have no luck with this go, to the other or vice versa it's, all Don's a personal taste I like the added features, of the graphical, options on this one that's the only reason why I'm showing you this one today as it's a little bit different so, what I want to do is, instead. Compress file once it's downloaded I, want to extract these files into a folder so, I'm gonna make one now it's. Called it. Can't. Spell it. Chronos. Demo. Just. So I know which one it is I'm filled up my desktop so it's easy to use to show you guys I would, hope, that you put this somewhere on your PC which is welfare, certificate, then, also needs to do is highlight. All the actual, files and folders drag, it over to the folds that I've just made let. It run free and do its bits and bobs now. I can get, compressed, file don't need that anymore and open. Up what we've just to uncompressed or, extracted. Whatever it is you want to call that now. In here is all the different files and folders we don't need to bother about any apart from this one Chronos and it's even got the official about, C icon, now. The, good thing about Chronos, is that it actually has a, emulated. Bios, within there you can also use, an official BIOS and, you can dump the meself and get it from websites, as even. Home-brewed. Versions, now, when I've tried, Region, three biases. I have had problems Alvin says 20% with, this emulator but. I would say that official, one seems from perfect for me and of course the emulated, one I've actually not had any issues, with it so, for, this purpose today and we'll show you the emulated, by ops that will get their compatibility with, official ones but that's, up to you to go down that route I'll show you now anyway, so easy to lose get it to run is double click it go. On to file to set up our options go, into settings and. Here's. All the options we've got available to us first, one in there is BIOS if you've got your own BIOS they normally come in BIM, format, all's needs to do is click, on these three dots and find. The location of wherever it is your BIOS is once. It's fill and click open, and we'll put location, there if, you haven't got a BIOS or you want to use the internal.
BIOS Land that comes with it all you need to do is tick that box that. Is it next. Thing then I would, tick. This basically, the, Saturn, that, clock on it which basically knew. What time it was to save the games all that kind of stuff I would click on synchronize, with knows exactly, what time it is from your system, I would, also click on all to start so when you load a game Altima, since it started running and the, rest of our stuff you don't need we need to. Obviously, the number of threads of the bottom here depends, on what kind of PC you'll run in my. Spectrum description down below I've got 12 cores which isn't. Needed, at all for this emulator but. It's in there anyway. Next. Video, and. Nothing. To mess around with here once we get in game we will start messing around with some of these settings, so it's the give, enhancements, to us but, for now leave everything to stock while we just test is the felt stop. Sound, leave, everything as it is carp. Memory, on cartridge. Do. Down the drop-down box called. 2d. RAM 32. B, round now. The, Sega Saturn itself, it had various characters that you could plug into the console some, of them gave extra. Backup. For your save games and stuff there was extra memory feessave games there, was an action replay that could go in there to the cheats, and stuff not very useful for emulation, but you can still do it we. Don't really need the extra, save. Games because it does, it on its own anyway in the emulator so. The, most useful one for us is 32d, run this ad, added. Power, or current to some games that could be emulated, through, the Sega sign not all but its best choice to choose it so those games are are usually. You've still got it enabled, there was one game I believe it was one the King of Fighters that needed, the 16 rom and I. Don't. Even think you need it on this but for. Me I would, choose this one so you're good to go obviously, if you loading, King of Fighters they won't work choose, the other one it's, not rocket science then. Going to input this video pads and you, can choose different versions. Of the controllers that were available for the Saturn for this one I'm going to choose the pad and just quickly set. This up. Obviously. My controller, is slightly different, so just fiddle, through and do whatever button, layout works for you guys. Click. On close and then that is the pod setup obviously. If you've got more than one player can do all those but for me I am, good to go, next. And bandits. Region. Go on to wall or detect no need to mess around with that these. Are for the sound and the CPU. Interpretation. View. Yep. No need to mess around and, these are the shortcuts if you want to basically. Use. Shortcuts. Click. On ok next, thing then click, file, and, we. Want to load a game to test it out so I've got a few, games here which we're gonna test and first.
Up Let's do a bit of Panzer Dragoon, so. All you need to do is this, if it's mounted to a drive or if you've got the disc, in a drive, and load it straight from there this, one if you want to load it from an actual file or I self so, to, come this find, out where my game to us means, desktop. Six games, and. Like I said with a new Panzer Dragoon and you want the queue file because, I've already, got VLC, automatically. Picks up but this is a PLC, file it's, not your icons, may differ but. Bin and queue are normally, their form on that you get the Sega Saturn sometimes, you've got CCD. And sometimes you got c HD as, far as i'm a word but all compatible with this emulator just choose one and if it doesn't work choose each other file that comes with it so click, on that and now because we clicked I will start it should hopefully. Start. Playing the game once, it's configured, itself to our system. Come. On oh we, have to click start. So. Now it should click the game, there. We go so as you can see we're, now playing, Panzer. Dragoon saga, which, is absolutely awesome now. What we need to do is get, the screen bigger so I can see what's going on you can full screen this but I need to have my options available to us then. Because. I've done my controller we can skip through all this. And. Then I'm gonna click on continue, I. Have. Got a save game in here thank God and, now, as you can see we are in game and. My. Controllers, working, we, are pretty much good to go. Amazing. Now. Because. We are playing this for the first time none of our settings I've been messed around with like we talked about just a second ago because we left everything as default, but, because we're playing this through our PC we've now got the added power that, we can add to it so, we can start to enhance things so first off, emulation. File. Settings, what, we want to do is video now, what we want to do is. Do, these sighs we'll. Bring that up to two times resolution. And, we. Will do, the, triangles. Using perspective, correction I would keep to that if you, get in warp textures, on your game try. Moving these around normally. The. Perspective.
Correction, Works, and everything but, if it is using, an iterable, I would go to either this or GPU, GPUs. Gotta be the fastest, that was really the most accurate, that one hopefully should fix everything. Upscale. Filter, I would, go 4eva. Bilinear, by Kubrick depending on what's working for you I'm, gonna go forward by Kubrick and, then. You've got the. Filters. That you can do for the upscaling, so this is more for your textures, so, of things such as right, in. Actual. 2d. Assets, on the screen even if it's wrapped around the polygon or something this, is what will give that, kind of feature these. Sometimes, look, a bit paintbrush, effect a bit, rounded. In sometimes, and can be a bit off plane so, be. A bit careful when using these of just this video I'm going to choose four times Biasi, and, I. Don't want to do no TV effect and off. We go so. Now as you can see, it. Looks. A lot better and. You can go through you different, options. You've got within there choose. A different tessellation. Choose, a different upscaling, choose, different resolutions, to. Whatever you. The most but. You can see now as we're going in game with, the upscaling. Around. The writing, you've, now got that kind of paintbrush, or, watercolor. Effect, going on so. If. I was to go into settings again video. And, turn, off this four times Biasi it's an on I will, get the upscaling but, I won't get I would get more pixelated. Rather than rounded, paint brush effect that's going on. So. Wait for the writing to come back you, see how things are more pixelated. Now rather than rounded off around the edges that. Is that because it's not got the four times BRZ on and, again it all down to your personal taste if you want things that look smoother. Rounded. For, me I do like, a better resolution but. I don't want to take away from the actual aesthetics of, the original, game that's just me my personal interpretation of. It that's why we've got these options, available to, us and that's what makes things amazing. About emulation. So. I think we've covered the actual emulator, itself. Now what I want to do is quickly talk, about the reason why I'm showing you this emulator. Rather than the others first, because it sparked interest from you guys looking, at the actual, emulator, being. Played for the single board computer, you wanted to be able to play it on your actual. Systems. And one, of the reasons why is because the other emulators. Such as med, nothing med. Nothing is the best aim later to choose out there for saegusa and emulators, it's, awesome, it is absolutely outstanding, of, what it does is the most compatible is that the best performance, and it's the most accurate emulator, you can choose to Sega's at and emulation, the. Problem with it is that is, very system, intensive, you need a beastly, CPU, in order to run but nothing especially, the, Sega Saturn and especially, especially, on, very. 3d, intensive, games you will get half speed even on whether. A few months ago I tried it on an i3, coffee lake and it was brand new straight out the box everything, was good it was all set up properly I was getting half the speed. To my proper rig now, yeah I threes, are pretty low-end ish but. You would expect at least a, 90s, cotton. Sole to be able to play to its utmost but. That's not fun against med nothing the biggest thing is accuracy, and to get that kind of accuracy, it needs a lot of granted, in order to replicate, the gameplay, as it was so, I don't blame them it's just that med nothing is the best option but it's not for everybody because that everybody, has got the PC to run it so that's why I was showing you yeah obviously because, everybody. Should be able to run that because you can you never run it on pretty much anything, including. A single, board computer, now, there are other options out there as well we've got SSF and that's. Awesome, but, the thing is SSF, it's, limited. In its compatibility, it's. Not as intensive, as made nothing but, it's not got the. Compatibility. With the games as med. Nothing so you may as well ever go to one extreme or the other and the. Other thing with SS earth is that it was fussy with its file formats, you needed to mount the discs on, a drive in order to run the actual games which is a pain in the ass so, you kind of put yourself off the market now been, noting itself there are other versions, available for, it you can load, it through retro, watch I believe it's called satin beetle, on there and it, is great it's fantastic if, you can get your head around retro arch then you're good to go the thing is that not only was it as intensive.
As The original mid muffin but also in most cases even more because you. Are adding. Extra graphical, features using, retro. Arch and that, puts you strain, of, even, more onto your PC which isn't ideal when, it's already under. Running, these all the games but, it is a valid option for those people, with the PCs who can run it now, if you do want to run spend the load but nothing it's a pain in the ass there's no GUI for it there's no menu it's, hard, to run out the box it means command problems and it needs short cookies but. I have put a video it was out some years back I'll link it in the scripture down below and it will show me exactly how to run, med, nothing -, it's got mulched using the standalone emulator. Even, without the GUI it's not hard to follow it's just a case of saying it all up then, you're good to go from, that day forth now, in that video I said that it was only, us. Games, now the compatibilities. Extended, and they can run game from any region, which is awesome, but, I do need to say that, it is obtained in the ads and is, very system intensive, so, now I think we, have covered near, enough everything, to do with Sega Saturn emulation. I think we're up to speed everyone, is good to go you, know how to run the emily's that i was talking about the other day who cleaned up a few facts and well. Sega, saturn is now running to the maximum, for everybody. Depending, on what kind of system you guys are running, so. As always, guys it's been an absolute, pleasure bringing, this year but. As always guys this is all been possible, thanks to the patreon, supporters, now, police in description down below if you wanna join the club but, it's thanks to them that I'm able to make videos like this and bring this kind of information to, you, guys hopefully, in the future we'll, extend this even more and we'll start going into bigger systems, and we'll start to push annulation, even, more to the maximum, but we've even, been doing up to now but, again I have to give my solid thanks to everybody who supports, me on there well, that's about it guys thank, you very much for joining me please as always like subscribe, do all the magical things they could ever imagine this wonderful world where we. Get to play and they, he's faced, console. On a. 2018. Computer. That, is pushed to the absolute limits, unless you watch my video. But. Most of all most. Of all you, guys have a good day laters.
