Games just...don't look too good?
#1
I'm not certain if this is a problem with the settings I have or if it just ought to be expected of PS2 emulation, but the several games I've tried have just looked generally unpleasant. Grainier than I'd expect, appearing worse than if I were to play them on an old television, etc.

When setting up PCSX2 I used the FAQ's recommended configurations for all the plugins, and set the resolution to be 3x Native. Most games I've tried run at a pretty steady 60 FPS, but just look blurry and grainy to where it makes my eyes sore to play for long. Are there some settings I ought to adjust, is this the current state of emulation, or is it simply because when playing PS2 I was used to being at a distance from a TV (as opposed to relatively close to a computer monitor)?

You can try some interlacing. Use F5 to toggle through them and set it manually in the gsdx settings if you find a good one. It can help clean things up. But yes generally speaking the game isn't going to appear as good as it seemed on the tv.

Use the texture filtering, and the GSDX Hacks. They should as on many games correct some graphics problems.
Also, which games are you trying to play.

I'll give that a shot! The games I was attempting to play were Suikoden V, Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and Tales of the Abyss. All of these from DVD.

For grainy effect can be fixed with texture filtering at half is recomanded. best gsdx for TOA so far i know is gsdx r.2460 or around of that and some gsdx hack shadeboost is worth to try, especially for fixed ghosting effect or give better image.

>> Emulation speed differs for each game. There will be some you can run fast easily, but others will simply require more powerfull hardware <<.

You should start by comparing your output to what you get with native res. Then I'm sure you'll notice the difference...

Add Blend Bff, Allow 8-Bit textures, D3D enhancements and Texture Filtering on (Click Two Times) That should do it. Happy

hell321: Can you stop posting exactly the same thing in every help thread, its getting a little teadious.

The only decent part of your advice (the texture filter etc) was already given in the post above, so it was pointless you reposting it. But the speedhacks were completely irrelivant, as was changing the rendered to dx9 (which is more unproductive than anything else)
