It lowers the forced synchronization between the EE and IOP, which is kinda expensive CPU wise.
Most games have no problem with that nowadays, so you get the option to disable it.

A good sign of it not working is when you game hangs on init, or while changing levels etc.

WaitCycles Sync Hack always work fine with most game. Never got trouble with WaitCycles Sync Hack enabled.
P.S. Just wondering if possible make x4 Cycle rate?

Sure is, but having that option means many people will use it.
As it will break lots (i bet all) of games we won't do that.

Hope you understand Wink

Hmm i succesefully finished many games with Pcsx2 ( more then 20) with x3 Sync hack always was enabled without any crashes and it gives not bad speed boost.
Anyway Will be great see x4 Sync hack on Pcsx2-Pg and test this thing.Smile

So this forced synchronization will never affect sound sync?

The WayCycles hack should not have any effect on sound. It can cause some games to freeze or hang or, in rare cases, vmhack. These are pretty uncommon though, and almost every game now uns fine with the hack enabled.

X3 sync hack is already bad enough and seems really unstable and breaks all FMVs. X4 would be a complete disaster.
