New speed hack - VU Cycle Stealing
#1
As may of you may know, there is a new speedhack on rev984 called VU Cycle Stealing; if you didn't, well, now you do. Has anyone who tried out the hack got any positive results? I've tested on numerous games and all of them have experienced a worse FPS than with the hack off. Am I just doing it wrong, or is this a useless speedhack? Post your results with the new hack, if you have any.

I tested with Xenosaga, God of War and Shadow of the Colossus.
Xenosaga: it breaks the game graphics
God of War: full speed as chacalfe said

and Shadow of the Colossus: I was amazed when I saw SotC running at fullspeed, sometimes at 100fps or more, on my poor E2180@2.8GHz. This hack is simply amazing. But don't abuse it or else it will break your games like no other hack has ever did.

Xenosaga didn't break with me on medium setting which said it work with most games but while it sped up the voices in the in game scenes they got way off sync with the video which continue to run at a decently slow pace.

Forgive my ignorance, but can anyone throw me a link to rev984? I tried the sticky in this forum but I only see rev976 and that doesn't have any VU Cycle Stealing speed hack. Unless the link in the sticky is no rev, in which case I'm terribly confused Wacko

It's simply awesome. I can get the few fps that I needed for a fullspeed game like DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3. And for other games I get much better on my Dual Core 2.6 GHz without overclocking.
