Slow games? (Shadow of colossus, sly 2)
#1
Hey, I'm new to the forums and to emulating and I have tried to run a few games. (Shadow of colossus, sly 2, a wipeout game) They are all pretty slow and the sound is pretty terrible. Is there any way to get these games to run properly? I apolagise if I am missing something stupidly obvious. I have tried the speed hacks and they don't make a difference.

System specs:
Vista
x3 AMD Phenom II
6BG DDR3
1.5T of storage
ATI Radeon HD 4850 1024MB

Phenom is bad with PCSX2.
I think that's the issue.. I've seen multiple people have problems and they have Phenom so, yeah. Phenom sucks.

Phenom isn't necessary bad for PCSX2, even though you will get more speed with an Intel with PCSX2, but towards Merchant, you try to play 2 games which are one of the more heavier games to emulate and I'm afraid your system is not really cut out to play them at 60 fps.

Sotc is slow, even on your ps2.
But it's one of those particular games which react very well to vu cycle stealing speedhack.
Use it. Never tried Sly, so i cant help about it.

Oh, and to be clear : phenom/phenom 2 are quite good with pcsx2. Really better than Bulldozer, less good than intel's counterparts.

Thanks for the help, although I do not see why sly 2 would be heavy to emulate. What kind of games would run? Stuff like KH or Jak games? Would they work?

Kingdom Hearts are, as I've heard, one of the games with the least requirements.
You'd probably be able to play it but might experience issues like I do.

Thanks, downloading it now. Going to take a few hours though. Dx
