I was wondering how does Mortal Kombat Trilogy on PS1 play Dreamcade Replay?

I booted it up in RetroArch just to do a quick test. The PSX ReArmed core seems to play it well. For some reason I had to tap between Start and Select on my 360 controller to get past the into to the menu. After the match ends it freezes for a second or two, but I believe that is the game loading the ladder screen. Then it shows the ladder and goes on to the next match.

I suck at fighting games in general, but I had 59-60FPS through the whole first round. It was a candle level with fire and candles burning. I tried it with the other two RetroArch cores, but there was a bit of slow down and frame dips before even getting to the menu.

Ok thanks.
I havd always liked mk trilogy on ps1 because you can play as classic versions of various characters along with the at the time current versions.

Ok thanks.
You are welcome. I also forgot to mention that you have to exit the program that lets the controller move the mouse. It is next to the clock. I have changed the title of the thread so that others with PS1 testing questions can ask here. So that there are not single threads for each game.
Happy gaming.

Dreamcade should have no issues with PS1 games.
It has plenty of power for that.
The only issues would be on the emulator. ;)

I have tried a handful of games that all work with no problem including Intelligent Qube, Super Puzzle Fighter, Monster Rancher, Crazy Climber 2000, Gallop Racer and Mr Driller. The only issue I have with the Playstation 1 is that it does not always recognize the controller. Often I have to reset the controls and sometimes they work and other times I cannot get the controllers to work. Not sure if this is a problem with the system or the emulator.

Mr Driller
I did not know there was a PS1 version of Mr Driller. I always played the Dreamcast version. Thanks for mentioning. Glad it runs well. I'm going to have to check it out.
