Dynasty Warriors 5! Please Help me Run this faster!!
Hi im new to this forum but i really want to find out how to setup my pcsx2 to play dynasty warriors 5.
it loads and everything and the screens/menu work fine but as soon as i enter battle it lags. most ive gotten it too is fluctuating between 22fps and 34fps and thats with those speedhacks and whatnot. i dont care a whole lot if the game is kinda glitchy because tbh this is a game that ive loved since i was like 10. ive always wanted to play it again and my freind told me about pcsx2.
anyways i dont have the best laptop in the world but it runs decently well
idk the specs of it. tbh i dont even know where to look for it lol
anyways if anyone could kinda like babystep me through how to get it to top speed id very much appreciate it Smile thanks guys!

Open your Start menu,
type dxdiag and then press Enter.

Use that to see your specs.
CPU model and GPU model mean a great deal.

Based on your processor,
I'd say you got this game running about as fast as expected.

It wouldn't really matter how good your GPU could be.
If it is something weak,
which I'm suspecting an integrated Radeon (maybe HD 4200),
then setting the internal resolution lower in the GS (Video) plugin settings is about the best thing you can do to help that. Set it to "Native", or try a lower custom res of 384x384. Maybe try checking "Allow 8-bit textures", but it can have varied results.

This may help some,
but it inevitably will still be slow due to your processor.
Especially when many characters are on-screen.
Speedhacks can help with that aspect,
but as you can see,
they're not going to be enough in this case.
im running isos :/ i didnt think i could effectively emulate a dynasty warriors game on my ***** laptop lol. but its like a huge part of my childhood so i definately had to try. anyone know or have a orignal xbox forsale that works lol?
What's wrong with your PS2? Tongue
