oooook. So i am running Final Fantasy X on Pcsx2

My laptop has a
Intel core duo T5850 @ 2.2Ghz (32-bit)
3852 MB of RAM
Running on Home VIsta SP1
and a Radeon HD 3650 graphics card.

My problem is i pretty much get 40ish fps all the time during Final Fantasy X gameplay. any suggestions to how i could increase the fps to a steady 60 fps?

How well is my computer suited for the pcsx2 emulator? is it powerful enough that the emulator should be running well? cause the game goes preeeetty slow. is it just FFX that might be the slow? perhaps other games will give me a better fps? If so what ones?

My laptop is similar to yours, except mine is less powerful and i can run FFX at full speeds (certain areas and spells cause it to go down but normal running around and battle is at 50fps). A few things to make sure of:
  • Make sure you are using SSSE3 plugin.
  • Make sure native is ticked for resolution.
  • I currently have all the speed hacks on, which results in some sloppy FMV's but thats the price to pay for playing it on a laptop. You can play around with those also.
  • Since your using vista make sure u got DX10 and using it, as i have read that it gives a boost in speed.

Thats pretty much all i can think of.

Oh and make sure ur battery isnt set on power saver or balanced, you'll need high performance for pcsx2.

Since you're playing on a laptop you should remember to turn off all possible bios/windows power saving options.
But overall, your laptop is a bit weak for the emu.

FMV = normal pre-rendered movie (which isn't rendered by a game's engine in real time)
Native resolution = native resolution. Of the game played. The one you see on your tv. Or the one you don't. There is a checkbox in GSDX.
