Is my PC just too weak to emulate Shadow Hearts properly?
#1
A Google search told me this game is just very finnicky to be emulated,  but wiki testers claim to have managed to play it at full speed consistently. 

https://wiki.pcsx2.net/Shadow_Hearts


Yet I'm lucky if it stays above 50% speed at any given time outside battles, and am getting rather frustrated with fiddling with settings back and forth. I'm starting to think my machine just can't handle the weird way the game was coded as well as the wiki tester's.

Here's what I'm using;

CPU AMD FX-4300 quad-core ~3800 mhz

GPU vidia GeForce GTX 750 ti

USA 2.20 bios

Direct3D11 (software), because apparently this is one of the few games that runs better on software mode instead of hardware. It does increase framerate by ~5-10.

PCSX2 version 1.4.0

Unfortunately, AMD bulldozer CPUs are known to be quite weak.

Well shet.

I understand nothing of computer hardware. If I were to upgrade, what would you suggest I get instead?

Thank you!

That said, I just checked the prices and it'll actually be cheaper to just buy a new PS2 :T

Still, thanks!

Hello, I don't think there is any new ps2 and games for sale ? A used ps2 cannot be repair if spoil, And  Ps2 display/sound is no match for ps2 emulators. That's the main points for ps2 emulation.
