Final Fantasy XII FPS question
hey everyone!
im actually not new here, im a lurker tho, and i thought id make a thread because ive been having a problem with FFXII's FPS. i have searched for other posts with the same problem, and they didnt help me much. i thought it'd be better if i post my own setting so as to make the problem get solved faster ^^

so the problem is, the pre-rendered CG cutscenes work fine, but the real-time ones are just so laggy, FPS ranging from 30-50%. In game graphics are having a slowdown too. FPS are 40-70%, but when the there are too many elements (let's say were in the city with large detailed building with many people), it slows down... Sad

here are my pc specs:

OS: Vista Ultimate, 64-bit
Inter Core 2 Duo, 2.33 Ghz
NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT, 1015 MB memory

PCSX2 Settings:

(pls see the attachments)

i hope someone would be able to help me out...thanks in advance Smile

oh btw im using the latest beta...and latest plugins (i guess ^^Wink

thanks then

Try using "Frame Limiting>Limit" intead of "Normal", that helped me a little.
It might also help your read speed by making an ISO of the disk and virtually mounting it. (if you don't know how, Google + how to make an ISO/how to mount an ISO. recommend PowerISO/MagicISO)
Your specs are a little lower, so not having an 8600+ or 4GB+ RAM is hurting you.
Even running an 8800GT, 4GB, and 3.0GHz Core 2 Duo will lag me down to 30~40fps in really crowded areas and during some real-time cut scenes. It runs ~80fps in open areas where you will spend most of your time though.

This is what's killing your performance, check 'native' in GSdx to take the load off the GPU and maybe uncheck 8 bit textures(check if your FPS go up with this off, else keep it on). Yes the game will look crap (just like on the PS2) but your graphics card just can't take the load of a higher resolution

Get a 9600gt or better and try to overclock your cpu to the 3.0ghz area.
My PS2 Resurrected:
AMD Phenom II x4 oc 3.4ghz
GTX 560 1gb
Western Digital 300gb hdd
4gb ddr800 kingston ram
Asrock N68-S Motherboard
thanks a lot abt that....the graphics card is primitive huh, i tried checking Native in the Graphics settings and it greatly improved the gameplay speeds. but real-times cutscenes are still a bit slow. are there any tips you could give to make it even a bit faster? or is it hopeless?

thanks again Smile
Theres not a whole lot you can do. First get the latest plugin pack which contains gsdx 0.1.16 and then try enabeling speedhacks one by one and see if that gets you some fps.
CPU: C2D E8400 @ 3.6

pacage from march 2010 WILL help you a lot,no matter at slow grafic card.

This, and you could set the "Clamping Mode" to "None" (both). But this might also break something, so be aware of this. If it does, just set it back to "Normal".
Rejoice, they say. Color is back.
