Can't seem to find the right core and settings to make it sync up properly.
AriahsVibes 28 Apr 2023 18:54
I would heavily recommend using Duckstation. RetroArch is not the end-all be-all, and it doesn't have ever recommended emulator for every console. While the work the Libretro devs do is amazing and wonderful, they don't exactly have great PS1 functionality. Duckstation all the way
MetalSnake 28 Apr 2023 20:02
but be aware that DuckStation isn't officially supported by RA. There are cases when cheevos don't trigger in DuckStation, and the devs can't/won't help. In RetroArch there is SwanStation, which basically is a fork of DuckStation, and it's officially supported by RA.

I always use Duckstation and never had any problem with achievements at all.

this is simultaneously one of the best and worst games of all time

I want to like this game since it's so wacky and fun but holy shit is the hit detection broken
Poefred 20 Aug 2023 22:36
It can be pretty busted on emulator unfortunately
RobbieD3King 13 Oct 2023 21:17
i finally figured out how to play this game and man being able to freestyle like you can is actually so hilarious and fun

I dont know how to get into cool in stage 1

If only the gameplay wasn't dogshit
chitinmail 2 Jan 2024 15:37
parappa and unjammer lammy have notoriously picky scoring. if you have any latency there's a good chance your tempo score is being thrown out the window
DiogoAsgard 4 Jan 2024 13:16
I played back in those days and the game wasn't fair. The sync is shit. From all the music games this is the worst in sync. It was supposed to be good. But it's unplayable Parappa and Um Jammer Lammy, they are not rythm games they are OUT OF RYTHM GAMES you score when you miss and you fail when you do it right. Like the guy said above, gameplay is dogshit!

Mastered! Glad to replay a game from one of my favorite franchises
Poefred 13 Feb 2024 21:50
@DiogoAsgard That's the point, you're supposed to freestyle not strictly follow the prompts 1 to 1, otherwise there'd be no challenge or depth. I can play it pretty consistently well on original hardware and even the HD remaster, emulated is a bit tricker though.
RobbieD3King 15 Apr 2024 08:56
Game does a bad job at explaining itself, but once you figure out how to play, it's INCREDIBLY fun. It does require a genuine sense of rhythm and creativity, so I feel like players with musical background will have a much easier time playing correctly.

Parappa is NOT about watching the inputs on screen and simply tapping along. It's about call-and-response freestyling and flow-switching. It's about chopping up vocal samples like you're J Dilla. Trying for high scores in 'cool/freestyle' mode is some of the most I've ever put my soul into any game. It's really something special.
RobbieD3King 15 Apr 2024 09:02
Timing hits perfectly is totally consistent as long as you focus on sound/the beat rather than the visual cue
RileyDJ 21 Apr 2024 20:34
i like this, also i slow the game down in retroarch, and i firgued out that you need to stay o the beats/rhythm, and if someone says like this too before me, im sorry
YukiKuga1907 6 May 2024 00:52
I respect the ones who got this fully complete the off balance type shit is annoying
