I tried running PCSX2 0.9.4 with God of War and had major artifacting so I downloaded the 0.9.5 and the problem became "fixed". The problem i am having now is exceedingly low FPS. I'm talking less than 10 frames a second!

I find this puzzling because in the Compatibility guide(found here: http://www.pcsx2.net/compat.php?c=key) it lists it as playable. I have tried various different graphics plugins, starting with ZeroGS and moving on to GSDX.

GSDX10 Settings:

[attachment=13506]
Resolution: Windowed
Renderer: Direct3D10 (Hardware)
Shader: Pixel Shader 2.0
Interlacing: None
Aspect Ratio: 16:9
D3D Internal Res: 1680*1050
SW rend. threads: 1

NLOOP hack: Yes/No
Texture filtering: Yes
Wait vsync: Yes

I tried full screen along with windowed mode to see if i could tell any performance increase and it seemed to run about the same.

i tried messing with Interlacing and it seems to make the screen shake at different settings but doesn't help performance.


I have since tried Final Fantasy X with NLOOP hack and that game is running poorly also.

Also, the sound is out of sync no matter what plugin i use.

If anyone can help or has ANY input or suggestions that could improve my PCSX2 gaming experience i would greatly appreciate your input.
Alright i fixed the laggy problem with FFX.

heres what i did:

I had to go into CPU configuration and enable MTGS and DC mode *facepalm*. I'm a noob Sad


Also the sound plugin i was using was no good. Switched it up to PEOp SPU2 1.9.0 and souns id waaaay better for me.

I looked at the compatibility chart again and it seems GOW will not work right until 0.9.6.
