Final Fantasy X - Help !
#1
Hey everyone.

I have downloaded pcsx2 a few days ago and i was about to try to play Final Fantasy X.

This is the graphic configuration i used :

GSdx 1451 SSSE3 - Have a quad core processors so SSSE4 is not supported :/

Settings : Renderer Direct3D 10 (Software)
Interlacing : None
Aspect Ratio : 4:3
SW rend threads: 1

I can start the game normally, then animation begins and it comes to a part when he says : "Let me tell you a story". Then Final Fantasy X title shows on a black screen, it fades and then everything remains black.

Can anyone help me with this ? I have tried all bios setting, nothing changed Sad

If anyone played, can you tell me optimal sound settings for it please ?
Thanks in advance, much appreciated.

well, first of all: why do you use software mode? does hardware mode not work at all? also you should provide us with some more info about your specs, pcsx2+plugins versions and their configuration

Thanks for replying :=)

Well, i used software mode because someone said it was better, didin't even try hardware mode xD

Specs :

OS : Windows Vista
RAM : 4gb
Processor : Q660 Quad Core
Graphic Card : GeForce 8800GT, 512 mb

Plugins currently used :

Graphic : GSdx 1451 (MSVC 15.00, SSSSE3) 0.1.15
Sound : Ghz SPU 2 (Public Beta) 1.9.0
Controller : SSSSPSX PAS Plugin Preassure Mod 1.6.0 - Can't configure LilyPad
Cdvdrom : Linuzappz Iso CDVD 0.7.0
Bios : Japan/Europe/USA v01.00(17/01/2000)

Can you see something wrong here ?

Thanks !

Quick Edit : Wow, Hardware mode looks so much better, thx. Btw, is there any way to skip that intro ?

Quick Edit 2 : It's working now, but for some reason, sound is like 5-10 seconds behind the game itself, can it be fixed ?

...

better? it's more compatible, but usually way slower. and it's absolutely not needed for such compatible games like ffx.

make sure you use the dx10 hardware mode of gsdx, update pcsx2 and all plugins to their latest betas from this forum. my fav sound plugin is spu2x, but ffx seesm to work fine with almost all of them and running it from hdd with linuziso is good. that you are unable to configure liliypad is odd, do you run pcsx2 with "right click->run as admin" and is it installed in a folder with full access rights like "my documents"?

gsdx in hardware mode looks better because it renders the game by default in a higher internal resolution (1024x1024) than the real ps2 (512x416). you might wanna experiment a bit with the "d3d internal res" in the gsdx config to find the highest setting for the game that still runs at a stable framerate. more complex scenes like the aeon summons (especially shiva) are a good way of "benchmarking" your settings. and i don't think the intro can be skipped, you could set your gsdx to native and hit F4 during the game until the frame limit mode is set to "none/normal". pcsx2 will then emulate the game as fast as possible, useful for speeding up things like cut scenes or level grinding (enable speed hacks for even more speed).

Thanks, will try all of that.

I couldn't use lilypad because it won't let me configure my Wingman controller, more specific movement buttons.

Btw, which SPU2 ?

I have found Pete's SPU2, PEOp.S. SPU2, Gigahertz SPU2 ... Which one ? If you can, could you supply me a ling to download page ?

Unfortunately that version doesn't work with FFX, it crashes the program when you start with that plugin.
