Raw Danger: Is it the emulator or my hardware?
#1
So, I've been trying to record and play Raw Danger. Now, what I usually do, is I set the affinity for PCSX2 to cores 0-2 and have core 3 for FRAPS.
That way, it's all not drawing off each other. I also have my power plan setting at high.

Now, when I play the game normally, I easily get 60FPS. But as soon as I start recording, it bogs down to 40. It shouldn't do that at all though, if it's on it's own core, correct? By the way, I have the MTVU hack on.

PC Specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost)
GPU: SAPPHIRE 100355-1GOCL Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5
Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Build Description: PCSX2 1.0.0 Stable Release - Windows

It probably shouldn't make a difference like that, but is the recording file being saved on the same drive your game is loaded from?

No, I've got it saving to a portable 1TB hard drive connected with a USB 3.0.

does saving it to the internal drive do it any quicker?

As far as I can tell, it's still the same.

Just for testing purposes, maybe you can try MSI afterburner recording, is a bit "smarter" than FRAPS, or try the free version of bandicam, there are a lots of codecs that consume very low resources

AMD FX8350 @4,3 Ghz
M5A99X EVO R2.0
GTX 660TI CUII OC 3GD5
2x4GB RipjawsX @1600
PCSX2 1.0.0.r5350

If you're talking about the internal recorder, it does the same thing.

just saying because I have tested various recording programs, and for me at least best results are for bandicam with the stock codec included, actually recording PZ 2 & 3 without any lack of FPS

Actually, my hotkey is the zero button on the number pad. That's not keyed to anything is it?
