The game works fine so far, its at 60fps on the opening screen, but when i gain control of my main guy the fps goes to 22.
I have been trying for hours to adjust it and tweak it.
Any help would really be appreciated.
It's a demanding game.
You need a 3Ghz dualcore CPU, preferably from Intel, and a somewhat decent vga card.
Also enable the recommended speedhacks to go with that.
It might be best to post your computer specs that way people will be able to help you better.

DQ8 is severely dependent on the graphics card compared to other Ps2 games. Your best bet is to checkmark "Native" in Gdsx for the resolution and see if that helps.
But if you are still running at less than 60 fps with native checked, then you need a new video card. The battle scenes and most other parts of the game will give you a much lower fps than that starting area will anyways.
It could also be your CPU of course, but onboard VGA likely wont cut it regardless. I played it on a 4850 Radeon awhile back and I had to run 950x950 res to hit 60 fps at all times...Which is really not much higher than native [640x480].
