In order to help you further with your problem, please make sure the following are all provided.
  • Your hardware specs - CPU, Graphics Card, Memory, Operating System.
  • The version of PCSX2 you are using.
  • Any non default settings you are using.

Thank You.

CPU- Intel core i5-3570k
graphics card- MSI R7 370
ram- 24 GB
Windows 10
pcsx2 version- 1.4.0
all setting are default except I changed slow motion adjust in GS to 50% and frame limiting is not checked, I cant recall is is is checked or not by default so I thought I would include it just in case
It happens to basically all the games I play on the emulator recently it has been on battlefront 2. In Battlefront 2 it typically only happens on certain maps such as if I play on Hoth I will have the problem more often. When playing a game such as tony hawk underground it just happens randomly for no apparent reason.

Download the latest Dev build here http://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2

Make sure your renderer is set to DX11.

Tried the new version, but it didn't fix the problem. I don't know how to check if my renderer is set to DX11 though.

The only question you didn't answer which could be important, are you playing from the original discs or ISO's?
Secondly, is your 3570k overclocked at all?
What do the EE, GS and VU percentages say at the top of the GS window when it slows down?

GS around 40-50ish

Also I would consider overclocking your CPU, the extra performance really helps. Why else would you buy a K series CPU? Tongue
