Dynasty warriors 3 discussion
#1
First of all, hello everyone, im new here to this forum and I have a big interest in this PS2 emulation program. Now im here also to discuss one of my favourite games of all time, which I have frame rate issues with, Dynasty warriors 3.

Ok first off, here are my specs:

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
ATI raedon HD 5750 gfx card
4Gb ddr3 ram
AMD Phenom II x6 1055T Processor( 6 cpus), ~2.8Ghz
DirectX 11.

I don't think my computer is a slouch, but I've tried for ages to try and get dynasty warriors 3 to work at a nice frame rate, now I've heard that pcsx2 only uses 2 cores, correct? If so I think it would be nice if there was an option to enable up to as many cores as the user would intend.

When I open the game the intro movies run smooth and fine, so does the menus and battle menu, but once I go in-game, when I encounter many troops, my frame limit goes way way down, sometimes even as low as 20fps. So, I was wondering if anyone could give me good plugins to use, and preferably which pcsx2 version to run for this game for it to run at a decent speed.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Means : "rewrite the source code from start for just minor fps improvement"

best version would be latets public beta.
what do the EE% and GS% say in gsdx titlebar when you get those slowdowns ?

The slowdown is basically until I get into a battle(where there are multiple opponents/allies), whenever im fighting about 1 squad its good. The slowdown goes down to about 36fps.

Also, the version of the game is NTSC, and it says the refresh rate is 27.50Hz

I pretty much have the same pc, sadly pcsx2 only uses 2 cores, I don't know when quad and hexacore support will be added. I've tried absolutely EVERY possible config, sat for hours and hours to no avail. The game runs fine until I run into a few squads then...laaaaag!!

I guess we'll have to wait for a new release. Dynasty Warriors 3 is my favorite in the series, can't wait to play it again.

The game is extremely CPU limited, probably hitting a PCSX2 bug (although these games were so badly coded that they brought the actual PS2 console to its' knees, casually having huge frame rate drops)
Overclock your CPU as far as you can or get one clocked at about 3,8 Ghz or more to get any kind of decent speeds with this game. DW4,5 and 6 all run quite faster than 3.
