Champions of Norrath help
#1
Would be very appreciative of any advice in terms of what settings I should use for CoN. 

My specs are:

2600K @ 4ghz
8GB Ram
GTX 1080
W10

Currently running on D3D11 hardware mode. FPS are pretty good - often 60 - but drop often. Occasionally certain localised bits of various areas make the game run in what feels like slow motion, too.

Any and all help much appreciated.

Make sure you have a recent development build from here: http://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/index.php

Use the OpenGL Hardware Rendered and be sure to enable HW Hacks and in that section, tick the "Fast Invalidation" hack as that helps these Snowblind games a LOT

the MTVU speedhack will also help Smile

Checking "Allow 8-Bit Textures" might improve performance a bit, too.

Turning it off might... MTVU enabled reduces performance by ~10% in Champions of Norrath on my system. I think it has a negative effect on all of the Snowblind engine games.

Yeah it seems to vary, for me it speeds things up.

@Dreadmoth: Gregory's recent vif-hash commit might've improved the MTVU situation on the latest git release. It removed some of the MTVU slowdown I experienced and created a minor FPS boost in some games which slowed down a little before.

Interesting. Maybe hyperthreading affects it?

That was with the latest git release. I'm not sure about CoN, but I think the performance hit is smaller than it used to be in BG: Dark Alliance 2.
