How to improve FPS?
#1
King's Field: The Ancient City seems to work quite fine on PCSX2, but It has been fairly laggy as some points in the game, not to the point where my Twitch viewers complained, but still kind of annoying. How can I improve my fps? It tends to vary from between 40-60 fps.

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):

0.9.8? Why don't you use latest version? 1.6.0 has released.

Using a 10 + year old build of the emulator seems to be the biggest problem here.

Not sure using a newer build will help with speed in that case...
But since we don't support old builds... That would still be a good start

I tried using 1.6.0 first. It really made no difference. 0.9.8 seems to be a bit less laggy, but still laggy.

that's about it.
get another PC, or play it on your real PS2 console, then

that 7200u aint exactly a powerhouse.. it'll probably play the easier to emulate games.. but it will even struggle with games that are really easy to emulate like final fantasy x. I speak from experience on this one..
