I just reinstalled Direct X 11 and my ATI drivers and the game play is at 30fps, slow, choppy, and barely playable. I was wondering what settings I could adjust in order to keep the FPS at 60, like it is during the menus.
ATI Radeon 4500 HD 512 MB
Core2Duo 2.20 Ghz
Windows 7 64-Bit
4 gigs of ram
overclocking your CPUn 'if possible) would help you as 2.2 Ghz is a bit low.
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
I've tried to get NCAA Football running well for a very long time now, and it just doesn't seem to work. My system specs are a hell of a lot better than yours and while my framerate is higher than 30fps, it still just doesn't run very well. I don't think the sports games get much attention when it comes to improving the emulation, as 1) You rarely ever see topics about it here, and 2) Most don't work very well, if at all. Seems to be mainly an RPG emulator
Want to explain what exactly is wrong? If no one is complaining or giving bug reports, they are bugs that will go unfixed.
If you just mean that a lot of sports games are slow... well... Depending on how a game utilizes the PS2 that can be harder to emulate, especially if they pushed the PS2's hardware... Indeed, most PS2 games were released much earlier in the lifecycle and don't push the system as much... Where as most of the sports games people tend to play (NFL10 or NBA11) occured late in the PS2's likecycle and therefore the companies making the games know how to push the PS2 harder to get the results they want... making for games that are harder to emulate.
Five extra years programming for a game system versus the majority of games released for the system will give them advantages in that regards, but it may end up costing those that choose to emulate.
I'm not complaining, I understand that this is just pretty much the way it is. If you look around the forums it's MOSTLY people asking how to get RPG's to work, Gran Turismo, God of War, etc. Sports games like Madden/NCAA/MLB just don't seem to get much attention.
And I would think the EA Sports games would be able to work ok considering they've pretty much been the exact same thing graphically on the PS2 for many, many years now. If they're pushing the hardware to the max, then they've been doing it since like NCAA 2007 since they all look pretty much the same since then.
The menus run 100% fine for me in NCAA/Madden, and SOMETIMES gameplay is smooth. But for the most part it's just choppy and the announcers talk slow. My system is:
AMD Phenom II x4 965
8gb DDR3 RAM
ATI 6950 2gb
Try some speedhacks, EE/VU cycle ones should help the most.
Core i5 3570k -- Geforce GTX 670 -- Windows 7 x64
Seems as out of the two football games Madden/NCAA 11, NCAA 11 plays significantly better than Madden on the emulator. What's the reason for this? Even with Turbo enabled it has no effect on Madden and a slight effect on NCAA 11. Does any one have any guesses as to why this occurs?
Because they are different games? Even if they look identical you can never know how different the code that runs behind that is, thus making emulating it easier or harder depending on the case.
