Whenever you change a property, click on another box/option to ensure that your change is highlighted in “black.” I usually do this on the properties for the actual game and CPS2 options to ensure that the settings are intact. Once both the game and CPS2 properties match, then click “OK” and it should be good to go. You can also manually edit, the configuration .ini file to a particular option as well.
Did some more testing that yielded some very interesting results.
The USB poll rate program does indeed actually work (using Win7) for most USB sticks (I haven’t been able to get my PS360 sticks to work, but all others worked). Basically, you can select the poll rate to 1000ms = 1ms as opposed to the standard Windows default USB poll rate of 8ms. There is a DEFINITE improvement.
Disabling bi-linear filtering on Direct 3D seems to increase the responsiveness aka reduce the input lag as well.
Papasi’s test pretty much confirmed how close this emulator is to actually matching the cps2 board; these new adjustments should close the gap even more
Small reminder ** The best way to utilize this emulator is to output the video signal from your PC/Mac/laptop to an outside monitor that has 0ms delay (VGA CRT/IIyama LCD/Euro brand LCDs) or one of the low input lag LCDs mentioned in the tech talk section. **
