Configuration help
I'm new to the emulation so I don't really know what settings for the plugins I need to get it running right. I followed the official english PCSX2 configuration guide and then tried to get Castlevania: Lament of Innocence to run on my PC. Technically it did work, but I was getting a bad frame rate, the graphics were poor, the audio was skippy, and the overall gameplay was choppy.

Can an advanced user help me out? I would greatly appreciate it Smile. Here are the specs for my machine:
AMD Athlon 64 x2 4600+ dual core cpu (2.4GHz)
Nvidia Geforce 9600GT 1.5GB DDR3 VRAM
My soundcard broke so right now I'm using the integrated onboard SoundMax HD audio controller on my Asus A8V-XE mainboard.
Windows XP Pro x64 SP3 with all the latest updates
I'm using DirectX 9.0c
Both my processor and GPU can support SSSE3

I just need to know what would be the best plugins to use and the optimal settings so I can play two of my fav CV games (Lament of Innocence and Curse of Darkness) on my PC - my PS2 is MIA Closedeyes.

ok here the settings I used.

GSdx 890 (MSVC 15.00, SSE2) 0.1.14
Resolution: 1024x768 60Hz
Renderer: Direct3D9 (Hardware)
Shader: Pixel Shader 2.0
Interlacing: Weave bff (saw-tooth)
Aspect Ration: 16:9
D3D Internal: 1024-1024 (default - "native" left unchecked)
Texture filtering: enabled
Wait vsync: disabled
Enable tv-out: disabled
Logarithmic Z: disabled
Alpha Correction (FBA): enabled

SPU2-X 1.1.0
Interpolation: 1 - Linear (recommended)
Disable effects processing: enabled
Module: 1 - XAudio 2 (recommended)
Latency: 160 ms (avg)
Disable time stretching: disabled

First Controller
Lilypad 0.9.9
Keyboard API: Raw Input (XP and later only)
Game Device APIs: DirectInput (enabled), XInput (enabled)
Mouse API: Raw Input
Hacks: Send esc on close (enabled), hide on fullscreen escape (enable, use GS thread (enabled)

I've got all the key bindings to my preference, but I'm unsure what to bind the Vert-Horiz Axis for the Left Analog, Right Analog, and D-pad to...

EERec - EE/IOP recompiler: enabled
VU Recompilers: all enabled
Multi Threaded GS mode (MTGS): enabled
Frame limiting: Limit - force frames to normal speeds if too fast

That's about it, that's all I set.
Try using Pixel Shader 3.0, and try without any interlacing.

I'm not sure about that particular game, but a 2.4 ghz processor (especially an AMD) is usually fairly slow.
Want to stream your games? Let me know and I can help you get set up with Open Broadcaster Software.
Try also with "native" checked and try some speedhacks maybe.
