MGS2 software mode slow doen
#1
Hi all,

Can anyone help me get MGS2 working properly on my PC?

In OpenGL the game runs fine (100% speed), but it’s got quite a few annoying graphical issues (mentioned on the wiki).

When I swap to software, I get massive slowdown in cutscenes and anytime there’s anything demanding on screen (alpha effects, lots of characters, etc).

Is there anything I can do to improve software performance?

My specs are:

I7 9700KF
RTX 3070
16gb RAM
M.2 SSD 

Thank you!

Try the latest dev build, software performance is improved a lot: https://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/

I’m actually using one of the recent(ish) dev builds - I compiled a build that fixes the translucent water textures specifically in MGS2 and (to a lesser extent) MGS3.

This one: https://github.com/PCSX2/pcsx2/pull/4385...-974619514

Not sure how recent this is, but it’s definitely more recent than 1.6.

It's not really a fix for the game hence it's not merged as a dev-build. I don't recommend using that route and expect good things.

Thanks for the advice. I was aware of this, but thought it was based on a more recent build. While the hack did fix the issue, even if only visually, I’ll download the latest dev build.
