#1
Hi
I dont know if this info is useful to anyone. If not just delete the thread Tongue

Hardware
CPU AMD A8 3870k 4x3Ghz
GPU Integrated AMD Radeon 6650D
RAM 2x4 GB DDR3 1600 Mhz

Not overclocked for now (need to buy proper cooling).

All games are NTSC. PCSX2 1.0.0 r5350 (gsdx sse2)

Virtua Fighter 4 Evo

Settings:
]EE/IOP Round mode: Chop/Zero Clamping mode: None

Results:
Movies 60 FPS Menus 60 FPS Gameplay 54-58 FPS

Comments:
This game doesn't like messing with EE cyclerate. VU Cycle Stealing on 1 is ok anything more breaks the game.
FPS wise is not full speed but playable. Stage with rain has lower FPS 50-53 (only that one)

Comments:
This game hates VU stealing. Needs custom res (on x2 native black lines appear). FPS depends on stages. On most of them 56-60 fps. Exceptions are city stage (that one with sun), the burning temple stage and city at night (with neons) FPS: 45-50

Comments:
VU stealing 3 causes graphical glitches (weird crt like artifacts from time to time) but its the only way to get playable fps. VU1 is set to superVu witch is a little slower than microVU but microVU doesnt show characters properly (almost all the time they are black) and in conversations microVU desont show character faces.

On software mode the game looks like original but fps hit is to much on that machine. Hardware mode gives constant 60 fps. Occasional slowdown in movies especialy when the camera zoom at something.

Well you have a choice here. Either you set native resolution and get almost constant 60 fps (sometimes slows down to 54-55)
Or you set x2 native and get 55-60 fps with slow downs to 40-50 fps (that occure more often)
Alpha needs to be on or the shadows will glitch. Jack hair looks little messy. Jack and daxter have no eyes.

I need to get further in the game to test it better. I assume that in some parts it can slow down. Then i will play with EE/VU cycle stealin. It's just to good to be true Tongue

This game is very gpu heavy and integrated Radeon 6650D is not enough for x2 native (game slows down to 43 FPS sometimes). Maybe oveclocking will be enough time will tell...

Another GPU heavy game. Custom res 800x700 is the best it can be without slow downs.

Rachet and Clank 1,2,3

Sadly theese games dont work to well with PCSX2. On hardware mode the graphics glitches. On software looks normal. FPS both in hardware and software are like 30-45. Unpleyable to me. Movies have constant 60 fps Tongue

Well i expected worse performance on this rig to be honest. Better be pleasantly suprised then have to high expectations and be disappointed i guess.

Thank you for this great peace of software. You really did great job. Keep up the good work and i expect playing Rachet and Clank series on PCSX2 2.0.0 soon Tongue

Out of curiosity. Is linux version works so well too ?
