Ideal settings for PCSX2
#1
Hi. New member here. I simply wish to ask the ideal settings for my emulator/plugins based on my pc specs. I've done a bit of homework but I'm fairly new to emulators so please be patient with me Smile

Intel Core i5
RAM 4GB
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

PCSX2 1.1.0.5649


Ok here's what's up...

The game (Final Fantasy X) is up and running. Works great. I was just wondering if I could tweak the configurations a bit more, sort of maximize the capacity of my hardware without slowing the game down (higher resolution, better graphics, etc.)

Here are my current plugin settings:

GSdx 5654 (MSVC 16.00, SSE2) 0.1.16 [GSdx32-SSE2]

Adapter: NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT
Render: Direct3D9 (Hardware)
Interlacing: Blend bff (slight blur 1/2 fps)
Resolution: 3x Native
8-bit textures allowed
Sprite and Aggressive-CRC enabled
MSAA 2x Z-24
Edge anti-aliasing (AA1)


***Under these current settings the game seems to run fine but not smoothly, it slows down quite a lot. Any changes I can make to these to eliminate the slowing down and have it run much more efficiently?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

Dont go higher than 2x native.
Your gpu isnt powerful enough to handle higher resolutions.
CPU : I7 2600K Oc'ed @ 4.2Ghz
Mobo : Intel P67 southbridge
GPU : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 Ti
RAM : 6 Go

Your GPU is pretty slow, there is not much you can do exept reducing the resolution to get some speed.
Try this settings:
Render: Direct3D10/11 (Hardware) (may be a bit faster)
Interlacing: Auto
Resolution: 2x Native
8-bit textures allowed (can be faster or slower test what works better for you)
Aggressive-CRC enabled
MSAA 0x/off (needs a lot of GPU power)

Definitely disable the AA. When I still had my 8800GT I ran the game at a custom internal resolution of 1280x720 but I think 2x native would be fine.

Also when playing this game using only recommended speed hacks give a great boost Smile

AA isn't available in HW mode, is it?

It's under hardware hacks in the GSDX menu, in general you don't want to use it anyways because it can introduce graphic bugs. It's better to just raise the internal resolution or use FXAA.
