Lag with The Sims 2/Midnight Club 3
#1
Hey guys, i'm new to the emulation world.

I'm trying to emulate both games.

specs :

i7 3610QM (4 cores running 2,3 - 3.1 ghz hyperthreaded)
GT 630m
8GB DDR3 RAM
15' 1366x768 (not even full HD)
DX9

These games lags like hell ! Even in on Full Performance...

Am I missing any configuration ? Maybe using an old PCSX2 build ? outdated plugins ?

I do play at 60 FPS and then suddently goes straight to 5 ~ 15 fps.

Make sure you are using either the latest stable build or if you already are then try the SVN build.

Once you've done that:

-Make sure that nothing is overheating, and do all the basic stuff (check for driver updates, and etc.)
-Try experimenting with speedhacks (more info. here)

As far as I can see, that's a laptop, so make sure to check your power options and put it in high-performance mode. Other than that, check drivers and background programs/processes which could be using your GPU and CPU

He said his speed suddenly drops, he doesn't need speedhacks, it sounds more like overheating/power plan problems.

I've done some benchmarking. Got some interesting results.

PCSX2 1.0.0 stable version :
GS : GSdx 5334 (MSVC 16.00, AVX) 0.1.16[gsdx32-avx-r5350]

It's not dropping anymore from 60 to 5 ~ 15.
Using hardware mode : 36 FPS
Software mode : 40

PCSX2 1.1.0 06/29 build
GS : the same
same configs
Hardware mode : the same
Software mode : 46 FPS

Maybe it's a matter of configuration ? Speed hacks ?

Yes, all drivers are updated.

I forgot, the max temperature CPU reaches is 63 degrees.

well in PCSX2 that may be a bit higher just use Coretemp while running the game in PCSX2 Smile
