#1
Question 
hi and first of all thanks for the great application.

i've read so many articles about running FFXII on PCSX2.0.9.6 with 60FPS, i've tried it too but i cant get it more than 7 FPS, the videos, intros, menus are working fine but when the actual game start it drops to 7. plz help me out i'm really dying to play it.

My configuration of System is this

Intel Core2 Duo 2.0 GHZ
2 GB Ram
ATI X1600 Graphic Card


thanks in advance

You graphics card is pretty weak for FFXII, which is one of the game that uses more GPU than CPU, so that's why you are getting the lower frame rates.

What version of PCSX2 are you using and what's your plugin setup?

Did you by any chance chose "renderer: software" in GSdx or did you enable filtering/aa in ZeroGS? maybe disabled some option in the pcsx2 cpu settings? please try following the pcsx2 configuration guide.

Thanks for the replies, i really appreciate it. Before i posted a response i read that Configuration Guide, and i tried so many configuration of entire plugin's, and i got a pretty good success in ZeroGs graphic display non of GSDX is working on my computer.

In ZeroGs Plugin things are working pretty much fine but got some issues with Sound and when sound got configured the graphics become glitches when i try graphic solution than sound got glitches n jaggy and when both works fine than it becomes 14FPS Smile

well about my Configuration of Plugins i've used GSdx but it aint work only ZeroGs, for Sound i've used SPU2-X, ZeroSPU2, PeopsSPU2.

problems problems problems Smile but i think this PS2 Emulator wont run smooth like i played on PS2 Am i right ? is this is the same Replica of PS2 or it will leave some software glitches ? million dollar question Smile

not with your rig. but with the right hardware it will run even smoother and better looking than the orginal Wink an emulator will never be an exact replica of the original system, but i think eventually all games will be upgraded to playable status. to eliminate all issues and workarounds is probably impossible.

well actually with gsdx it movie runs smoothly and when it enter to actuall game even the main Final Fantasy Begin Tab it starts lowering down the FPS around 14 than on the starts when Bash talks to Reks than FPS Goes to 5 or 9.

on ZeroGs it runs faster like i said before.

thanks for the emulator headsup and Salute with the configuration you have in your signature but i do have a powerful computer which is iMac not the PC THING Tongue kidding Smile I usually play The Last Remnant, Wolverine, Gears of War etc. at Full resolution. So its not that much weak system i guess ? wat say you ?

this could be the infamous "ati texture bottleneck", one of the devs confirmed the ff12 intro/tutorial as one of the games suffering from this ati specific slowdown. try the latest gsdx beta from this forum, it might help. but don't expect wonders for your fps Laugh

yeah, i didn't mean that your system is useless Wink , but ps2 emulation is a performance and especially cpu hungry monster, even my system is unable to achieve steady 60 fps on some of the more demanding games like mgs3 or sotc. and the comparison between pc games and emulated games is a common misconception: games like crysis are written for your specific system to use the full potential of your hardware, but emulation has to translate the instructions of the ps2 game into something your pc is able to execute. this process is very demanding, personal computers were just never designed to play ps2 games. to execute a single instruction of a ps2 game it might need e.g. 10 or more instructions on your cpu, and in addition to that the ps2 has got several chips that need to be emulated and synchronized at the same time. your system is absolutely not weak, it's just not the greatest for pcsx2 Tongue

good to hear another verification for the elimination of this dreaded ati slowdown. after updating your pcsx2 and plugins to the latest beta revisions your only options for a noticable speed increase are overclocking and the speed hacks. especially the "vu cycle stealing" could help, but don't set it to more than "moderate". for a probably slight improvement goto "config->advanced options" and set "round mode" to "nearest" and "clamp mode" to "none" or "normal". but keep in mind that these settings might lead in some games to "walking through walls", "falling through the floor" and other glitches.

btw, where is your mac, if you run microsoft windows on intel/ati hardware? Tongue just kidding Wink
