Castlevania: CoD fram drop
Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can send my way. 

I just installed PCSX2 in order to play Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and everything seemed to be running great at first, but occasionally during combat the framerate drops to ~65%. I check resource consumption and everything is within normal percentages. I tried tweaking settings based on other posts but I don't see any improvement. Some of the settings don't make much sense to me, since this is the first time I've used emulation to this level of complexity. Below are my system settings and config from the logs. Let me know if there's anything else I can provide to make this easier to isolate.
