Not sure why I cant run this need help.
#1
Ok so I have been messing with this emulator for a while but never been able to build a machine to run it properly now I am in a place were I can. Yet my build is getting abysmal fps on ffx the low end of which is around 15 fps in the opening scene of the game it will jump to 40 once in a while but plumets back very quickly which I dont get I thought I built a good machine for this.

My build

Phenom 2 x4 processor 3.30 ghz

nvidia 9400gt 1gb

4gb of ram soon to be 8 when my kit arrives.

windows 7 ultimate 64 bit.

I have tried several builds so far 9.6-9.7 and what ever the current one available on the site is and all render the same results. I really am not getting this.

So if anyone has any advice or ideas please help me out.

Try the latest beta svn build @ http://pcsx2.net/svn.php then try to enable the mtvu speed hack.

also make sure you are using gsdx for the video plugin and native mode.

Thank you for the assistance but even with that for some reason I am still getting low fps it starts out at a solid 60 through the opening and the music but once the opening video starts it will drop to 18fps and gradually keep falling until around 15. I keep wondering if it could be my video card not being good enough but i thought ffx was mostly processor intensive? Also I am running in native with direct x10 hardware also which gsdx plugin should i be using? only the sse 2 ones will enable for me from what im seeing.

Unfortunately the AMD Phenom II series processors will only be able to use the SSE2 plugins, also AMD processors will run pcsx2 alot slower then an Intel equivalent @ same Ghz.

That said it could also be a video card or driver issue, get a program like GPU-Z and see how the video card is being loaded if the Core or Memory is at 100% load then its most definitely a video card issue.

(btw did you enable the MTVU hack in pcsx2, it will make pcsx2 use an extra core on your cpu)

The gt440 is a good bet, cheap and cheerful Smile or a 550 if you can squeeze a bit more cash

Hmmm....

I've played FFX with a 9400GT,
and a much weaker processor.
Not that you couldn't use a newer GPU,
but you shouldn't be stuck with ~15fps in FFX, either.

Show me your GS plugin settings, please.

Make sure you are using offical Nvidia drivers also and not the ones provided with windows or windows update.
