Dark Cloud 2 Graphic Issues
#1
Hey guys,
I've been searching around the site and not having much luck so I figured I'd ask. I've been playing Dark Cloud 2 from ISO. I have to run from the ISO to run at a normal rate, I have the game but I guess my dvd drive isn't cool enough. So from the ISO I have normal fps and sound. Gameplay works perfectly. I'm having a lot of issues with extra characters in the text, the item screen is a mess. I've tried messing with settings in the plugins and what not but nothing seems to be helping. I'll try to post some links to screen caps of the problem and some of my specs.

I'd appreciate any help I could get. My system shouldn't have any issues running this. I don't have any speed hacks or patches running and I made sure DirectX is up to date.

Have u tried using software renderer mode in GSDx configuration ? Try to disable speedhacks if your PC is capable enough ~.~

Tried it in software instead of hardware, fixed the issues but ruined my fps. I am not using any speed hacks. Speed hacks did not help to restore my fps in software mode.

That's right, bear with it since software renderer doesn't use GPU power. And Pcsx2 only use 2 cores to emulate. So what are the use of the other cores in quad ?

I don't have any of the graphical problem, and I am using the latest beta and plugin which can be found in the sticky section. Try it out and see if it solves it ( it should).

Guess I didn't realize I wasn't already using the latest beta since I downloaded this 2 days ago. So I grabbed the new beta, fixed the item menu. Noticed as I was playing that the text seems to get worse as I play. Could this be some sort of cache problem?

Well, assuming you have everything else at default, it is probably a graphical problem. When I tested it, I did notice there was some very minor graphical glitch namely some white and black dots at the bottom of or around the text, but It was nothing like your picture. I could still see every letter quite clearly.

I used 2x scaling, dx 10 hardware with 8bit texture uncheck to test (eveything else default, both micro vu checked), and my game is NTSC- U/C.

Also, I have tested only a minute or 2, so I am not sure if it is a problem at later of the game ( I haven't really started playing dark cloud 1 and 2, so I try not to get too far and spoil myself).

May I ask you what video card You're using right now? Smile

I had playing Dark Cloud 2 until chapter 7, and is i recall there's no problem like you had there! Smile

It's not that it run perfectly, but it's playable enough. Laugh

I'm using all speedhack with native's color mode. With Dx10 hardware renderer. Rolleyes

Now now, let make a valid logic. If u want to get good speed, u will need to use GPU as your renderer, this mean hardware rendering. But if u want to have perfect graphics, use software renderer mode in GSDx, but u will need to sacrifice some fps. Another method would be the CPU configuration to be configured.
if u want to get speed and nice-looking graphics while in game, u must use great GPU, somthing like GTX or Radeon HD 5xxx series and above. Pay attention! This doesn't mean u will always experience good gaming, though.

I'm sorry if i typed something that isn't valid or true. Please correct myself,thx.
