- R654:9d0c536f702d: Update dolphin-emu to October progress report adn enable LTO
- Testing with Wii Sports, Super Mario Galaxy, New Super Mario Bros and Mario Cart Wii.
I am honestly tired of compiling, testing and repeating it over and over again for this package. I am putting it back to how it was before I started optimizing it. Might (almost certainly) come back to this in the next update revision and see about using LTO...
No I haven't tried that. I have 16GB ram and uses up all of it when it's at the second last file in the build. Do you think that it would make a difference?
I will try to build the last monthly update and a new git commit after that to see if it's some new issue in that commit or something else.
If you run out of RAM while compiling, you can also try to reduce the number of jobs. If instead you're linking, then there's nothing to do but increasing virtual memory. Try with a 2 or 4 gigs of swap.
It would be very cool if this revision could get merged soon. It has been open for a couple months now and it is ready to land.
I just added Link Time Optimizations because they give a slight performance bump (big enough for me to not drop from 60 to 58 fps when opening the Wii menu ) and just over a 12% decrease in package size 👍
