F9 Fix

I dont normally post for support, normally figure things out myself, but my mind is not as good as it used to be (bloody chemotherapy).

Ive got myself a new laptop, runs this amazingly, some games i notice have issues and found pressing F9 fixed the issue (having lines down the screen, or odd shapes).

But when I press F9 the resolution drops, my system is more than capable of running smoothly at 8x resolution for most games, tho i see little difference so for battery sake i run at 4x.

but when i press F9 it seems to run at PS2 resolution, is there a way to run at higher resolutions when i press F9 (when said game has any issues).

thanks, and accept my apologies again if this has already been covered, im not sure what it would fall under to search.

F9 sets the game to software mode, which fixes a lot of issues, but it's really slow. If you have a problem with lines on the screen, try setting a custom resolution, something weird like 1650 x 900 or something. I had to do that to fix lines on Soul Calibur IV and Chaos Legion.

Certain games don't like 1080p custom or x2, x4 etc.

some reason i cant reply, keeps telling me my post is too long, ive tried to delete as much as i can, in fact all text and still the same.

ahh its let me post that, so what is F9 enabling and is there any options to increase resolution for said mode.

also cant figure out this pnach cheat lark, so decided to start making my own codes using cheat engine (not sure if anyone else is doing this too)

heres some tonight i did for Extermination (been a while since making codes on emulators, been busy doing switch codes)
F9 - Software mode makes the cpu do all the work and since this makes the game requirements higher,not to make it even harder to keep full speed,in software mode,the resolution is locked to native and you can only use filters to make it look little better.
Resolution Scaling can case visual problems

And about the pnach part...I don't know what is so difficult to figure out,look at your screenshot

For example Infinite SPRP 4 Ammo
In pnach format you just to place the same address(this is pcsx2 specific)and value

patch=1,EE,the address,extended,the value but converted from decimal to hexadecimal

The first digit of the address
0 is used if the type is byte
1 if it's 2 bytes
2 if it's 4 bytes

3E7 is 999 in hexadecimal

And btw,the PS2 don't use float type codes,they all are integer

There are a lot of guides here explaining the same thing

And also,to make a pnach work,enable the cheats from the menu(it doesn't matter if you don't have any yet)and once you run the game,you will find a line in the console telling you what file and from where pcsx2 is trying to load it to load cheats(this includes the full path and the pnach name and extension)
