is there any way to speed up pcsx2 so that i can play radiata stories at a reasonable speed. its in slow motion right now when i play
AMD Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor 5000+ 2.6ghz
2gb ram 32bit operating system
radeon x1650 series
ive got newest beta with all default settings
try using some speedhacks, native ps2 res, putting clamps to NONE. its easy
look for those options...
OS: Win 7 Ultimate x64 sp1, MoBo: Asus P5QD Turbo, CPU: Q6600 @ 3,0Ghz, RAM: Trancend 2x2gb 6-6-6-18 800 MHz, GPU: HD 4850 1gb.

what speed hacks i dont really know how to do any of this
The one's that say [Recommended] are a good place to start. Try that, and if it's not enough, try adding to the EE Cyclerate or VU Cycle stealing little by little (try both at the same time if you're desperate). Pay attention to what happens after each little bit you change those two, at some point they can "break" some games (like make it worse than without hacks or show false FPS).
i tried messing around with those and it didnt really do much for me.
2.6ghz. That's the problem.
At the current state you'll need a dual-core 3ghz processor for pcsx2 to run at reasonable speeds.
Athlon II x2 245 (@3.6Ghz), 6gb DDR3 1333, GeForce GTS250 2gb Ram, Linux Mint 12 32bit.
It's usually vice versa, the better you emulate a system, the more power you need for more accurate emulation. That said, it doesn't mean that there won't be further speed improvements, but could be canceled out because of what I said earlier.
