FPS questions - Wild Arms 5
#1
So, im pretty new to the PS2 emulation scene, and i was wondering, what could be bottlenecking my performance while im playing this game

Note: i havent tested any other games yet, as my SSD is small.

I was playing WA 5 and i was getting a stable 60 fps in small places, 50-55 in Fligaia and 30-35 in battle. Im not sure what could be causing this substantial performance drop, as my EE sits around 65% in battle, and my GS hovers 48-55%
Is there any specific reason why i could be losing performance? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Better post the emulog.txt after you loaded the game...
what do the ee% & gs% say when you disable speedhacks ?

Turned off speedhacks, in combat EE hits around 70-85%, GS is around 30-50, mostly sitting around 38-40
FPS still around 35-40%

I see.
Your CPU is suffering a bit, but you should get better results.

tried D3D11 hardware mode instead of D3D9 ?
