Phenom X3 720 (2.8ghz)
4gb 1600mhz DDR3 RAM
Using default plugins and settings, I cannot get Dark Cloud 1 or 2 to run at a constant 60. I'm sure this computer is capable. I've tried other settings recommended in youtube videos, to no change at all. Any suggestions? Thank you.
or try latest SVn with MTVU hack since you have more than 2 cores.
but yes, 2.8ghz is low for dark cloud series
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go
Keep the 4th core disabled but overclock the CPU as much as you can.
Then fetch a SVN build of PCSX2 so you can use the new MTVU speedhack.
This may give you playable speeds, even on an AMD cpu.
I already test this game in the past. Vucycle stealing, EE hacks option and playing in directx 10/11 is capable to gain more fps for dark cloud 2 game and i dont know about dark cloud 1 maybe same . Make sure you watch gpu loading. This game is one of demanding game for eating gpu. Try first at native res in gsdx plugin then up scale res if necassary and try with MTVU option too.

>> Emulation speed differs for each game. There will be some you can run fast easily, but others will simply require more powerfull hardware <<.
