Pride FC and K-1 World Grand Prix - anyone get them to work well???
#1
Hello everyone,

This is my first post here. First, I think that this is amazing work and my hats are off to the developers. Such a labor of love.

I am a huge fan of MMA games, and even used to play the FirePro games back in the day because they were the closest thing. I searched the forum for users that have successfully gotten Pride FC and/or K-1 World Grand Prix (2006 version and the original 2003 version) to work. Those threads asked about how to improve performance but the results were never posted.

So I am asking if any of you have successfully dialed in the game and how you did it. Any help will be very appreciated.

BTW - my system specs are in my signature.
THANKS!

PCSX2 settings? Plugin settings? What problems do you have?

Try the latest beta if you aren't already:

Hi Shadow Lady,

I'm using the newest Beta version.
Curious about what settings to use overall, Emulation and Video settings.

I have a quad i7's (8 threads) so I tried SSE4 and Direct11.
Pride still runs sluggish...want to know what I can do to speed everything up, and if anyone has gotten Pride FC to work well?

Does overclocking my video card help? Does the BIOS version matter?

thanks

Ok, so your problem is speed. Please post your settings so we can help better as well as the EE/GS% numbers in the game window when you get slowdowns.

Overclocking videocard usually doesn't make much of a difference, overclocking the CPU on the other hand might but not really a possibility in your laptop, you actually want to use fewer cores so they will be faster due to turbo so if you're using Direct3D11 (Software) change it to hardware and try to set the affinity of cores to only 2 for PCSX2.

GSDX 3693 (SSE41)>Direct3D 9>Native
Emulation (default)

EE: 100%
GS: 82%

How do I do that?
Wait...I think I figured it out, Task Manager>PCSX2>Set Affinity>I set it to CPU 7 and CPU 8

Also try enabling some speedhacks since EE% is the one having a hard time and set the GSdx Renderer to Direct3D10 (Hardware) instead of 9.

Tried both Direct10 and Direct9. Direct9 seems to work better.
I figured out how to set the affinity but thanks for the nice animation.

Do you have Pride FC? I am mostly curious to see if anyone configured it so it runs smoothly.

Tried going to 2 cpu's, then 3, then 4....turns out 8 is best. They lag with anything less than 6.

I found these the best settings for Pride FC and K-1 World Grand Prix (2003)
Graphics: SSE4>Direct9>Native and Blend bff
Emulation: Enable Speedhacks>EE Cyclerate to 3>Check INTC and Loop Detection>Check mVU

Everything else is default.
I got Pride FC running pretty smooth and K-1 plays almost perfectly.

I got K-1 World Grand Prix 2006 to open and play well, 60 fps.
Same setting as above except run Direct9 as Software
