Mario64 DS crashing when you get the first star

Post by richardwad1 » Sun Aug 23, 2015 9:27 pm

Mario 64 is crashing when you get the first star. I have tried different settings and it is still an issue.

It does this consistently in the newest version, which I bought on google play and an older version that came on my device. On the older version, it freezes and doesn't do anything else. On the new version, it restarts the program. It seems to run flawlessly up until this point.

My device is a GPD Q9.

SOC: It is an RK3288 device with an ARM Mali-T764 GPU.

It is running Android 4.4.4

This does make the game completely unplayable because you cannot progress at all.

Any help with this would be appreciated. I could always play it on N64, but N64 emulation has always been terrible. I have been playing many other titles and have had a great experience so far. I also signed up for the beta, but i have not received it yet.

Can you confirm that this happens when starting the game from a fresh game w/o loading a savestate? Also, that you don't have any cheats enabled? Could you give specific directions for which star you get that causes it to make sure it's reproducable?

It is without any savestates or cheats. It happens when you go to the first door to the left in the castle and defeat the bomb. When you touch the star is when the freeze happens. I also tried on different versions of the rom. The result is the same. It doesn't matter what angle you jump up to get the star from either.

It doesn't crash on my device (Galaxy S5, CyanogenMod 12.1, current Drastic beta version). Tested with the American version of the ROM.

I remember I had problems with drastic on my jxd 7800b because it had a weird pirated version of drastic pre-installed and it couldn't even be properly uninstalled or updated. Weird stuff.

The one that is preinstalled on mine is part of a Chinese program called Happy chick. I always buy the emulators that I actually use because I don't like to count on that one and I like to support software development. The Chinese program uses very old versions of the software.

Does anyone else have an rk3288 device to test it on?
