Underutilization of computer resources?
#1
Hello,

I've recently been trying to play my copy of Ace Combat 4 but have been having a lot of difficulty with the framerate when I get in-game (the menus work fine, just not the combat); the twist to this is that I should have no issues with it at all.

My GS utilization never peaks over 25% even at the most strenous moments and my EE and UI aren't even worth mentioning, but for some reason when I get into combat I average ~25-30 fps depending on my settings. Out of curiosity I also watched my usages (memory, CPU, etc) from my Task Manager, none of which rose above 25%.

My computer uses:

GeForce GT 740M
Intel i7 @ 2.4gHz
8G RAM

(If it's worth mentioning, I run Windows 8.)

I really don't understand why I'm having any issues if none of my resources are constraining my game. Thanks in advance!

I apologize, but I don't think I know what you mean by that. Is that the text box off to the right that opens when you open pcsx2? If it is:

that's what I thought.
pcsx2 isn't using your NVIDIA card. you'll have to make a specific profile using nvidia config panel.

Alright; any chance you could explain it / link how to do it? Thanks by the way; I never would have noticed that. Smile

unfortunately, I never did this since I don't have a laptop Sad
but I'm pretty sure a quick google search will help Wink
