help with low frame rate
#1
Information 
I have been searching and searching and I just need some answers. Thanks.
I have been trying to play Star Wars Battlefront 1 and 2 and the frame rate is great at the menus (60fps) then as soon as I get into the gameplay it drops significantly to 20-25fps. How can I get this game running back up to 60fps while in the game?

Specs:
Intel i5 450m at 2.6ghz
ATI Radeon 5650 1GB
6GB Ram
Windows 7 64bit

I have pictures of the settings I have no speed hacks enabled and I just want to play this game at the frame rate its meant to be. I ran cpuz and found that my computer has compatibility for SSE 1, 2, 3, 3s, 4.1, 4.2. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Try with the Direct3D10 (Hardware) renderer in GSdx, although software fixes some glitches and may actually be faster so you'll have to see which is best.

You may need to use frameskip for that game (shift+f4) while playing, may want to try some speedhacks instead too (VU cycle stealing could help).

It only has dx9 and dx11 and when I put it to hardware on either of those it gives ~10 fps. I enabled the speedhacks and everything and it gives me 50fps kinda playable but it still glitches and slows up at times. Thank you

DX11 is DX10/11 plug in, theres no separate dx10 and dx11 plugin, if your gpu support dx11 which only newest gpus do than it will use dx11 if not it will use dx10, if u use win7 or vista which support dx10 use it its faster and looks better than dx9, as for using hardware dx10/11 or software dx10/11 i dont know i guess it depends on the game, i always use the hardware one, and i think thats what most people use as well

Alright thanks I can't figure out why the hardware one makes both these games' frame rate drop. I was able to get 50-60 with all the speed hacks and dx11 software. Thanks for the help.

@brushpicks11
is that you post my comments in youtube??i just replyed you
btw try disable windows aero,set power plan to "High performance",and your laptop must be plugged in AC power.

well your i5 is a mid-range while my i7 laptop is a early-entry so our laptops is farther different.

Ya it was I didn't think that the i5 or i7 would make much of a difference considering PCSX2 doesn't support quad cores yet. Otherwise thanks for the tip. I disabled windows aero and my frames went up about 5 which helped quite a bit actually. Thanks
