FPS issue.
#1
i know for a fact that i'm definately not the first person to post this thread, and i apologize to anyone if this might've annoyed them, but I have an issue I haven't been able to fix for days now. I recently got into using emulators, and first downloaded a DS emulator, then i tried my hand at PCSX2, and i found it very fun. I put on a Kingdom Hearts Re-Chain of Memories ISO on my computer and ran it, which was successful. The first run, which had just a FEW slowed down parts, for the most, ran well. however, almost immediately after running PCSX2 for a second time, the game was running at around 20-30 fps. 30 if i was lucky. in the main menu it had a good 50-60, in the loading screen, 10-20. during gameplay, 20. and during actual battles, 2-10. my computer is a Acer Aspire 7551-7422
Operating System = Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition Service Pack 1 (build 7601), 64-bit
Physical RAM = 7934 MB
CPU name = AMD Phenom™ II N970 Quad-Core Processor
Vendor/Model = AuthenticAMD (stepping 03)
CPU speed = 2.193 ghz (4 logical threads)
x86PType = Standard OEM
x86Flags = 178bfbff 00802009
x86EFlags = efd3fbff

my video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 512 mb
i have gone into the emulators settings and tweeked around with practically everything possible including speed hacks, yet nothing helped. is this an issue with my video card? i would love some solid feedback. thank you for your time.

For pretty much any game with an AMD CPU for HW mode you need at least 3 GHZ, 3.4 GHZ being recommended in this guide. Don't even think about SW mode, as it may go 10fps. Tongue

However, that GPU is pretty old and not very effective to help your fps, even in HW mode. Here is a GPU benchmarking website. Bear in mind that this card is in the low-to-mid range benchmarks.

So the best bet is to make sure your power management is "High Performance" (be careful of heat) and try VU Cycle stealing max of 2 and/or EE timing max of 2. Using max settings on these 2 speedhacks usually causes more problems than they help, but with some games you may get lucky. Also try MTVU hack, it may or may not help.

u should configure the graphics plug in to directx10 or 11 hardware and tick native resolution. that should give u speed
