FFX-2 works fine except for the FMVs...
And this is more a gsdx bug than a pcsx2 bug.

All cinematics in the PAL version of FFX2 is 16:9 ratio, unlike the NTSC version, which is 4:3 (see screenshots below). But unlike other games where the 16:9 movie should be at the center of the screen with 2 small black bars on the top and the bottom, FFX-2 PAL FMVs are on the top, leave the bottom of the window a big annoying black bar. I think this is PSCX2 bug. Playing on my PS2, FFX-2 PAL FMV is on the center of the TV screen.

Luckily you do not play FFX-2 PAL on PS2. Like FFX, FFX-2 is a bad conversion from NTSC. Its aspect ratio is 16:9 and has 2 annoying black bars on the top and bottom of the screen and all "fat characters", except for the FMVs, which are 16:9 on purpose. I was really angry with that disc when I bought it. When playing on PCSX2, the gameplay is 4:3, like the PAL version of FFX. Don't know what PCSX2 does with it.

Here is the NTSC version of FFX-2:

And here is the PAL version:

As you can see, the PAL version's FMVs are 16:9 on purpose. There're more details on the left and right side of Rikku, and the bottom is cut off a bit.

Edit: I ran them on PCSX2 0.9.6 more than a year ago on my crappy laptop Celeron 560 2.13 Ghz. I haven't tested it again in 0.9.8 but maybe it is still the same.

/ to edgedaniel Set the window ratio to 4:3. You're using 16:9 ratio and Rikku looks too fat Blink.
