dunno what you can do for R&C (except you will have to run it in software mode to run it without glitches, but it'll be slower...)
About shadow of the colossus, push VU cycle stealing speedhack to 2 and remove MTVU hack.
that should help you greatly.
I much like to DISAGREE with that statement
My system is slightly better (appart from the oc) and i run SoC @ fullspeed 99,99% provided you use VU steal hack set to just 1... and everything at default
The same for R&C.. and if you manage to get those games to work at full speed you can pretty much get any game at fullspeed .... that is in HWmode atleast ...
But then again, my cpu is overclocked and is the next P2 in line (new revision) compared to his 955 that still use C2 stepping !!!!
It plausible that the C2 VS C3 stepping might be an major factor here.. yeah...
Cause my previous P2 940BE wos also an C2 stepping cpu and i had horrible FPS (even overclocked to 3.8Ghz!) .
Thats like 400 less then i now have with my 965... still the 965BE > 940BE performance is like NIGHT and DAY
REmarkable, when clock frequency play's such an huge factor in video editing/encoding and such but is of less importance suddenly when emulating pcSX2...!
I woud love to see the multi-threaded / core implementation to improve thoug in pcsx2...
I bet this might be the very root of the performance hit aswell..
So yeah , come to think of it... i can't totaly disagree with ya !!!
