So, I thought I'd try final fantasy X again. I played it through in it's entirety on pcsx2 and I don't recall having any slowdowns after I was done tweaking it. and if I recall correctly, ZeroGS is what did it for me. However, there's no zerogs in the current version and I can't seem to find it anywhere. What happened to it?
ZeroGS has lots of glitches with this game and runs slower than GSdx.
There's no reason to use it anymore, it's simply outdated.
I stupidly made a copy of this page instead of a link to it so i didn't see anyone reply before...
My own moronity aside, I found zerogs somewhere and it was a noticable speedup in some areas, which isn't too surprising seeing as how it failed to render half the game... I got rid of it quickly.
I hadn't looked at the buildbot builds yet and I have now. that MTVU hack did miracles for my slow but sturdy quad core, thanks.
Still don't know how it ran so much better in early 2010 than it did now without the hack... but it's entirely playable now so I'm not complaining
