Cant seem to play any game
#1
Hey guys just downloaded PCSX2 and installed via instructions, when i open a game it loads and runs the intro videos and the initial start screen okay, but when i get into a menu where i have to select something it gets extremely choppy and the sound wigs out. Its not just a low FPS issue. ive tried all the SSE versions and all those, aswell as the other openGL etc options and nothing seems to change it. My laptop is win 10 / direct x 12 with 12GB ram, AMD A12 7th gen and Radeon 4GB dedicated graphics, is my processer in compatible or something?

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):

AMD A12 doesn't say much.
1.What exactly is your cpu,gpu
2.Are you using any non default settings
3.Are you sure pcsx2 is using your dedicated gpu(if you check the log you will see which gpu is used)
4.What game are you trying to play
5.Post the emulog after you run the game,reach to the problematic point and close pcsx2
The emulog is in the pcsx2\logs directory if you are using the portable version or in Documents\PCSX2\logs if you are using the installer

CPU str is around 1300
Simply put, play this game on your real PS2 console. Not only your CPU is weak for pcsx2, this game is particularly demanding

Hmm really? It seems odd though, Ive tried 2 games, Juiced and NFS underground, both the same, is my CPU really that weak to run PCSX2? Id understand if it was simply a drop in FPS, but its reaching a speed of 20% (10ish) presuming thats FPS? and the sound is extremely distorted

The sound is synchronized to the game speed and the fps in PS2 is not the same as in PC games
On a NTSC game,the game is running as 30fps internal speed and 60fps refresh rate.
If the speed goes below 60fps,the internal speed also drops divided by 2

So for example if you play a PC game at 10fps,you know how slow it is and that can be translated to running PS2 NTSC game at 20fps

That's how a ps2 works. Fps is synced to general gameplay speed

Just confuses me as in the stickied thread will pcsx2 run fast my cpu is far more powerful than the ones listed under reasonable play speeds and I have a friend with an very old laptop that has no issues. I'm also getting weird red lines in the screen

It's not what you think. Your CPU is almost 200 below the 1500 mark, which is the minimum requirement. The emulator requires a really good single- thread performance. Sure the multi- core performance is pretty good, but that's not relevant to the emulator. Here's a comparison of your CPU with the two others that I used. Obviously, I don't really use the PC with the i5 processor anymore for PCSX2.
