Any tips for speeding up Jak 3?
#1
Got Jak 3 ISO yesterday,it runs full speed most of time in software mode,which is really incredible,because i thought it will be running at playable speed like R&C Games.
But Jak 3 can run really full speed most of time,the only thing is the desert,the desert suffer from slowdown here,i mean i can fell it because the song become slowly,the caves in desert are fine but the desert itself is laggy,any tips for speeding it up?

GPU: GTX 650Ti 1GB
CPU: FX 8350 4.2 Ghz
Ram: 8GB 1600Mhz

In emulation settings everything is set to default,in speedhacks everything is enabled except "Enable Fast DVD",EE Cyclerate Stealing is set to 3 and Vu Cycle Stealing to 0

Set extra rendering threads to 4 in GSdx.

humor me. and this WILL look ugly, but post results on speed:

gsdx.ini:
Quote:[Settings]
ShadeBoost_Contrast=50
ShadeBoost_Brightness=50
ShadeBoost_Saturation=50
UserHacks_MSAA=0
UserHacks_AlphaHack=0
UserHacks_HalfPixelOffset=0
UserHacks_SpriteHack=0
UserHacks_SkipDraw=0
UserHacks_WildHack=0
UserHacks_AggressiveCRC=0
ModeWidth=0
ModeHeight=0
ModeRefreshRate=0
Renderer=3
Interlace=0
AspectRatio=0
upscale_multiplier=3
windowed=1
filter=2
paltex=1
vsync=0
logz=1
fba=1
aa1=0
nativeres=0
resx=384
resy=384
extrathreads=0
ShadeBoost=1
UserHacks=0

this uses dx10/dx11

I have some other ideas too, but start with this. and bear with, I cannot do these tests myself cause I don't own the game

^ Agreed, don't set more than:

(total cores - 2) - (if MTVU is on then 1 else 0)

So in your case, setting more than 5 with MTVU on is a bad idea. But the gains above 4 are almost nothing.

I Know eight-core is bad for PCSX2,i doesn't know that when i bought my CPU,i just don't considered Intel because Core i5/i7 is overpriced.
Here in PCSX2 i guess i already spent much effort trying to run R&C games in SW Mode here and It's not been so long ago since I finally found a setting that allowed me to play at a playable speed games like God of War 2,R&C and Jak.

that was based on an i7, the point was it has LOTS of cores and threads. I was testing how PCSX2 reacted to them. apply the same to your PC and see

it's not that the CPU is bad, in fact it's not. what is bad is how you are setting up gsdx

Really?That's really serious?I Thought setting 7 core is the right thing for it
