Fate/Unlimited Codes
#1
Whats up guys. I got the emulator not too long ago and I'm getting the hang of what some of the settings do. Right now, I need to determine if I have a strong enough PC to play Fate/unlimited codes.

My specs:

CPU 0: 2400MHz, Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 2.40GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9
CPU 1: 2400MHz, Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 2.40GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 9

(hyperthreading btw)

OS: Windows XP Home Edition(Version 5.1 Build 2600) Service Pack 3
Video: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200

What I've done so far

-I've already tried a couple speed hacks and lowered the resolution as low as I can.
-I tried turning off all sound options to give me more speed
-I'm also trying to use zeroGs but I'm not sure what to do with the generated number. One thread mentioned "Take the number generated and open the game's corresponding pnach file (usually the game's CRC.pnach). Then add in a new line zerogs=xxxxxxxx where the x's are the id." I have no idea where this is.....

anyway, I tried a couple stuff and I'm beginning the think I just need to upgrade my computer.

Any suggestions appreciated. Smile

Most likely not, it might be able to play the game but your system isnt fast enough to play PS2 emulated games well enough really.

I figured as much. Thanks for your reply Shadow Lady.

Your CPU is too slow for this game. This one used to run at 40-60 fps sometime ago in my C2D e8400 @3.6 ghz. Now it's running always (or almost always) fullspeed, but you still need a good cpu. It likes to eat a lot of gpu too.

if you can you should update that FX 5200 to at least a 7100 (if you have pci-e x16 go for an 8600gt)

Improving from a fx 5200 to a 8600gt is a nice increase but will that be enough?

One (two) more question. I do plan on getting a new computer. I'm planning on getting a quad core (hopefully with more then 2.23ghz). I heard that the emulator doesn't support quad cores.

Now does that mean it won't run at all or does that mean its just going to use 2 or 3 of the 4 cores?

Also, does that make the dual core the better choice for this emulator?

Edit: Most quads are around 2ghz to 2.50ghz from what I've seen while a dual core can get up to 3 to 3.50ghz. I would guess the dual would be the better choice.

and as far as processing powers go in general, the quad cores can't match the speed of dual cores but they can use 4 cores. Does this make them slower or faster then dual cores?

Edit: to be more exact, a:

Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T9900 (3.06 GHz, 6 MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB) vs.
Intel® Core™2 Extreme Mobile Processor QX9300 (2.53Ghz, 12MB L2 Cache, 1066MHz FSB) info for this emulator AND in general, which is better.

The emulator supports up to 2 cores for now. That means it will work on a quad core, but it will only use 2 out of 4 cores. Quad cores are faster than dual cores in programs and applications that support multithreading to more than 2 cores, which are really scarce even these days.
I'd suggest to get a quad core, so you'll be future proof. The emulator might add support for quads sometime in the future. But, the 3 Ghz Core 2 duo will also serve you well. You won't be able to play everything at full speed but a good majority should run well (given that you couple it with at least a 8600 GT or equivalent graphics card)

I'll keep this in mind. Thanks Bostiman Smile

tekken 5 went from 20 to about 40 for me, so I'd suppose it should be a decient improvement. (2.20 dual)

sorry I didn't reply earlier, PC issues
