Why can't I run it?
#1
I'm sure everyone is tired of the Can I Run It? threads but this one is not about can I run it, it is about, why can't I run it?

Here are my specs.

Processor:
AMD Phenom ii x6 1100t black edition 3.3ghz

Graphics:
Palit gtx 560 ti 2gb

Ram:
7gb

I have tried multiple games and they all are way under 60fps, more like 20-30fps if I'm lucky. The only game that I have archived around 60fps was resident evil 4 and lets face it, it's not the most spectacular display of graphics ever.

Games Tried:
Kingdom hearts 2: around 30-35fps
Resident Evil 4: around 60fps
Ape Escape 2: around 15-20fps
the sims 2: around 30fps
etc....

I feel the problem is with me not being able to switch from sse2, to ssse3 or sse41, but I know my cpu can handle those other modes. With my current setup there is no excuse for me to have to use speedhacks and deal with the unpleasantness of them. Please if anyone can help me with my problem I would appreciate it very muchBiggrin

Actually your cpu does not support ssse3 or sse4.1. But even if it did it would not effect speed THAT much, its more like a 10% increase at best. That said you should be getting better speeds, atleast on KH2, I am unfamiliar with the other ones so I cant comment on them. What version/settings are you using?

My current version is 0.9.8.r4600 running on Windows XP 32bit
My current plugins/configurations are:

GSDX 4600 sse2 / direct3d9 hardware, interlacing (have tried all) currently none, resolution 1024x1024 (windowed), texture filtering, and alpha correction are both on.

lilypad svn (r4510) / setup for my ps3 controller

SPU2-X r4600m 1.4.0 / interpolation(4), reverb boost factor 1x, Module (1), latency: 150ms, sync mode (Timestrech), Audio expansion (stereo)

linuz iso cdvd 0.9.0
usbnull 0.7.0
fwnull 0.7.0
dev9null 0.5.0

Why are you only using DirectX9? Your card supports 11.
The need for interlacing will vary between games. Just check with each one, and see which setting isn't "jumpy" and/or is clearest.
Your GPU should support that resolution.
Isn't Logarithmic Z also checked (by default)? Either way, that's just DirectX9.

SPU2-X
To sum it up: default. Shouldn't really need to mess with it.

Speedhacks
Have you ever tried these to help with speed?

Thats why. Anyway, try using speedhacks. They aren't unpleasent at all if you find the right setting for the game you are playing. I often have to use speedhacks myself and my cpu is a bit faster than yours(for pcsx2 at least).

Speedhacks will increase your speeds a bit. However if you can overclock, the OC may increase your fps ALOT.

Man your CPU is not perfect, it is a very good CPU but no way near perfect, you have to use speedhacks in some of your games.
Even the Sandy Bridges cannot be called perfect CPU's even with the 5 GHz OC. I am sure some games will not run at full speed easily even with a 5 GHz CPU (without Speedhacks).


I didn't enter the forums over a month ago, & BTW congratulations Rezard for being a moderator Smile.

Well, I'm not just getting at the obvious fact of that, I'm more getting at a general stand-point for this one.

I don't mean to harp on you (jd1818), but looking at your system, I see using XP 32bit as a general downfall. With that nice, modern GPU, it's a shame to leave it on an OS which keeps it from it's DX10/11 capabilities. Multi-core processors tend to run better on Windows 7, and you're not seeing all of that 7gb of RAM when using 32bit.

Why purchase 7gb of RAM if you're only gonna use 3.5gb? The same concept applies with the graphics card in this situation.

You got that right, hallmark.

And thanks. Smile
