Newbie - Can't figure this thing out
#1
Alright, so far reading through the forums has been a great help to me and I've figured out how to get the program to run and to read a disk.

My system specs:

Dual (2) Inel Xeon 2.0 ghz processsors
1.5 GB RAM
Radeon X1300 Video Card
Windows XP Pro, SP2

Please note, I HAVE installed the most recent update for DirectX (the one from March 2009).

My problems:
From the moment I hit execute, the sound and video are both very choppy. I tried toggling the interlace settings with F5, but it doesn't help. Rather, it slightly helps the video (but not enough), and it does not help the sound at all. The sound cuts in and out rapidly. This problem persists once a disk is loaded as well.

When I hit execute, I get 2 errors before the disk loads and I get PS2 display. Those errors are "rom2 not found" and "erom not found". I'm not sure what those are all about, but the disk does indeed load afterwards.

I have tried 2 game disks, Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistance, and Sly Cooper, and I keep getting the same mystery error on both, but it happens at different times.
When I try MGS3, I see the PS2 logo, the konami logo, the kojima logo, then I get the error and have to shut down.
When I try Sly Cooper, I see the ps2 logo, then i am prompted to create a gamefile on my memory card, I hit yes, then it begins to create the file, then I get the error and have to shut down. Upon reloading the game, I do not get prompted to create a gamefile and instead I get through the first cutscene, but then I get the same error when I hit "new game" and I have to shut down.

Here is the emuLog from loading MGS3.

those errors are usually found in a faulty iso, try remaking it from your physical disc
those erom2 errors, dont mind them, they dont affect the usage of the emu
try using file>cd/dvd load instead of executing (I can see than that is what you do, since the only way to see the ps2 logo is using execute)
oh, and you tried to use the most difficult games to emulate on a somewhat weak pc (at least for the emu), if you have other games you might want to try them out

Faulty ISO? I don't understand... I am using the physical game disk to load and play my games.... there is no ISO. Unless, are you suggesting I create an ISO?

Also, I tried a different game disk, and sure enough, it works. Evil Dead Regeneration. However, once again, its way to choppy in both video and sound to actually play. I DID manage to get it past the "new game" hiccup, though. Right now I am sitting through the opening cutscene, or at least trying to (its so choppy I can't make anything out). We'll see if I have any issues once I get to the playable part.

.....

Ok, I'm plying... My CPU usage is holding between 50% and 65%... The choppiness is so intense its like I'm watching a slow motion replay. I can control my character, so thats good, but the choppiness is just SOOOO intense on the video and sound! Video on the following cutscene is running a lot smoothr, but the sound is still just as choppy as it was in-game.

your pc is simply to weak to run these games and any realistic speeds. you can try the final fantasy, disgaea and kingdom hearts series if you have any of those. they should run ok, but still not on full speed.

Looks like your MGS3 disc is damaged...
You will not get good speeds with your system,especially the graphics card is barely able to run PCSX2. If you want to enjoy gameplay you should change your PC to something newer...
For the time you can try installing the latest beta and see if enabling some speed hacks helps you some

D: This is not pleasant news!

I HAVE been meaning to upgrade my system for a while now... I guess now I have yet another excuse. I do, however, highly doubt that my MGS3 disk is damaged, cuz I got the exact same error on MGS2, Sly Cooper, Sly 2, and Ratchet & Clank. Also, all those disks worked fine on my actual PS2 before it bit the dust, and they've just been sitting in their cases ever since. It's probably a combination of me needing to upgrade my hardware and me not configuring the software properly (it's very easy to get lost in the config settings).

I'll try the beta later and let you all know what happens with it. In the meantime, thanks for your comments, everyone.

PS - Not sure if this will effect the diagnosis at all, but the choppiness in the audio and video also occurs in the PS2 browser (no disk boot).

Oh you didn't mention you got the same error with the other games too.
If you are running from discs,it is as simple as select Gigaherz CDVD plugin,configure it to the drive letter your dvd player is at,then click file->run cd/dvd

*scratches head*

I'm already using Gigaherz CDVD plugin... and getting that CDVD read error whether I use file>run or run>execute. However, based on your advice, I tried changing my CDVD plugin to a different one, P.E.Op.S., and it worked on MGS3. Video and sound is still really choppy though. I'm gonna play around with the sound and video settings for a bit, I'll let you know if I get one that works. The game is running though.

MGS3 will continue to be very choppy on your system no matter what your settings are. MGS3 would probably run slow on MY machine in fact.

Want to stream your games? Let me know and I can help you get set up with Open Broadcaster Software.
