Just started getting into all of this, so please bare with me if I am slow to understand, but what are the best settings to run the SNES9xTYL Mecm v0.4.2 Mod r26? The issue I seem to be running into is, when playing more fast paced SNES games (for instance Megaman X), the more that is going on in the game (multiple enemies/obstacles), the game starts slowing down in both motion and sound.

Any advice you guys may have would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

On some games that use the Super FX chip (Megaman X2, X3) or Mode7 (F-Zero, Mario Kart) a lot, there is slowdown no matter what settings you use. On certain ones, you can get them to be very playable with a few tweaks. For me the most useful ones are setting the PSP clockspeed to 333Mhz and frameskip to 1-3. That's usually enough to get them to be pretty good.

Thanks so much for that! I think I got a couple of sweet spots figured out for the MMX games. Donkey Kong Country also proved difficult, but I think I narrowed that down, too. I appreciate your advice, guile!

For Donkey Kong Country to run more faster try Turning on Ignore palette write. Go to Misc then Hack/debug menu. This might also work for other game that runs slow.

Wow... that ignore palette write works like magic. Thanks
