i cant seem to get final fantasy 12 to run smooth, my fps its at like 20-26 and i cant seem to get it any higher.
im running a CQ6600 (2.4) with a 8800GT (512) an 4 gb of ram so it should be fine right?
Hm your processor will be a bottleneck but 20 fps sounds a bit too low.
Get the latest beta PCSX2 and plugins. Are you using vista? If so set GSDx to DX10 Hardware renderer. Also try using some speed hacks
below 30fps sounds really low. Today this game is really playable... I have a 2.4 proc too and play mostly at 60fps (1280x800, not even native) and with minor speed hacks.
Post more info (version of pcsx2 and plugins and actual config) so we can help you improve performance
SAGER NP8690 | i7-620M 2.66Ghz | 6GB RAM | ATI 5870M 1GB GDDR5 | FullHD 1080p 15.6'' | 500GB HDD 7200RPM | WINDOWS 7
That's caused by your slow 8600 geforce. You can try checking native on GSdx but don't expect miracles, FFXII is a graphics card intensive game

If you would like, I have recommended settings at the link in my signature.
Final Fantasy XII I play really often, so I can vouch for the settings myself.
I have cycle rate at 2x with more updating plugins and such (you can find the plugins and executables at the links I provided in my signature's page).
Most of your other settings look pretty good. Put the Sound Quality stuff at max, don't disable anything (use 2-Cubic from the dropdown, and uncheck all the disabling options there), shouldn't hurt performance very much.
Make sure to check the recommended Advanced Settings in my signature's link (you didn't post those).
After you've reviewed all my settings, then the last thing you can try is lowering the internal resolution to get the frame rates you want.
@Limeroo - ya, your graphics chip is a little weak. Your processor is also a little slow. That's just what you get with the current laptops though (they have to run lower clocks because they need to run cooler in tighter systems).
@boltron - you should be able to get solid frames from FF XII on PCSX2.
Also, if you are familiar with the process and know how to do it safely, consider overclocking your Q6600 a bit for more performance. IIRC they have pretty good overclocking potential. But before doing that make sure you use all the recommended settings in my signature guide.
My spec is
Core2 Duo 1.8Ghz
I use all speedhack, 2x cycle rate
I avarage around 40-45fps with normal play, sometimes drop to ~30 when in city. Voice is always quicker than image in cutscene. Sounds in normal is good although stutter in FMV
So pretty good I think, it is playable for me. However, do i get better fps if i reduce the solution in the graphic plugin? I have "windowed" at the moment
