Running at 45%...Help please
#1
Alright, I read all of the guide, but I still can't figure out which options I should use.

My CPU Specs:
AMD Phenom 9850 Quad Core 2.5
2x2 4 GB Ram
Nvidia 9800 GTX

The games run exceptionally slow at all games, such as Gladius, soul calibur III, dynasty warriors etc.

I later on turned Speedhacks to x2, but no apparent help.
For the graphics, I picked the SSE2 and hardware directx10 mode.
Windowed + 1025 1025 hertz.

How can I make the games( atleast some) run at 100%?

Thankyou

try it with gsdx set to "native" resolution, use the latest beta of pcsx2 and plugins from this thread, run the games as iso images from your hdd with linuziso cdvd plugin. also post the config of your pcsx2.

The beta pcsx helped a lot in the games' performance, but still only 50%-65% while the CPU usage rarely goes above 60%.

Thank you

well, your config is fine, just enable some more speed hacks, especially the vu cycle stealing might help a lot. i'd say that your gpu is fine for most games, your cpu is probably a bit of a bottleneck, but with some more speed hacking you should be fine. but i don't know how demanding the games are which you mentioned, as i don't have them Wink

what about your advanced settings? also try the "allow 8bit textures" feature, you have a reasonably good card so it may bring a performance boost.

P.S.: The VU Cycling Stealing + Turning speedhack to x2 helped me achieve a constant 95-100 percent.

Questions: Will the x2 speedhack create graphic bugs? Should I set the PCSX2 priority to high or something? Should I overclock my cpu?

all speed hacks might create glitches or even crashes with some games, only method to find out for sure is trial and error. but good to hear that it works now.

i don't think that setting pcsx2 to a higher process priority is necessary unless you are running some nasty background tasks like norton "let me shut down your internet access for you" internet security Wink

can't help you with the decision if to overclock or not, as i'm not a fan of it, especially if it involves raising the voltages. many games will profit from it without a doubt, as most of them rely more on the power of your cpu than your gpu.

You can also try microvu and its hacks. For most of my games it's faster.
