The Sims 2 : Castaway (r4952)
#1
Hi.
I'm new in these forums and in PCSX2.
I'm making this because the ISO from the Sims 2 : Castaway seems to have a problem and doesn't show text and some images. (e.g being near to a coconut palm show you 2 blank options) I know the solution (just because I read it) and it's pressing F9 , wich actually fix the problem but drop me from 60 fps to 20-25.
A guy give a solution 4 years ago about this , the fix was configurating GSDx and select DirectX10 and set ''sw rendering threats to 3''. This fix is very outdated , so I can't fix this problem.
So I'm wondering if someone can bring me a newer solution to this , and I really want to play this!
Thanks

That's an extremely old version of PCSX2, please get a newer one from the website.

hm.
not much you can do with that cpu. Software mode is the only way to fix it. but setting rendering threads to 3 will have little to no effect on gameplay with this cpu you're using.
Keep playing on your PS2 for now

Really? Wow , sad. But if I put the game on windows mode and lower the resolution?
I'm wondering why does this happen?
Thanks

Emulation is extremly cpu-hungry. And your cpu is more on the weaker side considering raw power. Using window mode or reduced resolution shouldn't do anything.
