Is my PC too slow to run PCSX2 or is this normal?


#1

is this normal?
with speed hacks turned off, 3d games like Tekken 5, King of Fighters 2006, Soul Calibur 3 give me just around 50 fps…

pcsx2 1.2.1
GSDX 5875 MSVC 18.00 AVX 0.1.16 (gsdx 32-avx-r5875)
Direct3D 9 hardware
Native
rest all settings off

PC:
CPU: i5 3330 3GHZ
GPU: Geforce GTX 650 1GB DDR5
RAM: 8 GB DDR3 RAM
MOBO: Gigabyte H61M-DS2 DVI

it’s capped at 50 FPS? Are you running PAL copies?

Check out http://wiki.pcsx2.net/ for game settings and to see if there are emulation issues.


#3

no it isn’t coz when i turn on speed hacks it goes above 60fps and their all NTSC…


#4

Oh well you probably just need to turn some of the speedhacks on to get them playable. That wiki will help you out for settings most likely.


#5

but is it possible to get 60fps without speed hacks? coz i want to use the netplay version and that doesn’t allow u to use speed hacks when on netplay:

I think it’s your brain that’s too slow. Jack that shit up with a PS720++++++ and you’ll be flying faster than 60 fps!!!


#8

u ought to use a PS720 on ur brain!


#9

Haha, it was just an in-joke.

Check that wiki, I bet there aren’t many PS2 games that are playable without speedhacks. If you can run Tekken 5 at 50FPS, maybe try the PAL version and see if it’s smooth.

Running the PAL version at 100% speed compared to like 83% speed would be better. Although I’m not really sure if it scales like that…


#10

Yeah PS2 emulation still probably has a long way to go. Have you tried lowering resolution settings and extra effects and the like?


#11

like i said above resolution: native and other setting turned off


#12

How was I supposed to know what Native meant?

At native res it shouldn’t be so taxing. Do as @pzlate mentioned and check the database for best settings. Something is probably wrong in your config because I recall PCSX running pretty good and I have a much weaker PC.


#13

I remember those Namco games being pretty buggy, but yeah, I was able to play games at full speed with some speedhacks enabled with an E8500 dual core. This was all 4+ years ago though.

Also that build you’re running is like 3 years old, I wonder if you could take the new plugins from the latest build and use them in the old version to see if if things run better.


#14

already checked the database and they said to use speed hacks
