Comments:

Also selected Direct3D11 (Software), no interlacing, 1 extra rendering thread in the GS plugin settings, with base framerate adjusted to 100% in the core GS settings to keep it from going too fast.
Plays at 40-60 fps, full sound effects; lag only occurs with smoke-type effects close to the screen, or if lots of action is going on.
Haven't finished yet, so Ingame status for now.
Credit for config should go to Youtube user Jackson Patrick (found the config via this URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7tid0-uyJU )

Comments:

Game works alright (a bit slow) in Gsdx Software mode.

Bugs:

Menus are absent in Gsdx HW mode. Also once ingame HW mode seems to be suffering from massive memory leak and almost hangs my pc. Use Gsdx software mode as most of the textures are missing with HW mode anyway.

Comments: Game works okay in DirectX11 Software mode, but works even better in DirectX9 mode Software mode. Performance scales accordingly with number of extra software threads for me, up to 6, although the scale is roughly logarithmic (Scales less and less with each successive thread). I get a very solid 58-60FPS with anywhere from 6-10 threads. Using only 1 extra with DirectX9, I get only ~30FPS, 2 gets me ~40, 3 ~45, 4 ~48, etc.

Once past 6, usually the game can run at a steady framerate with no issues, even with smoke onscreen. At first startup, the game runs a little choppy at around 55FPS, but stabilizes after a minute or so, at least for me. Only major graphics issue is odd lines appearing on the screen when the draw distance is visible, which does throw things a little off.

The EE timing hack does help a bit with keeping things relatively smooth, otherwise I do notice a little bit of chop, and it's reflected barely in the framerate by going from ~60 average to 58 average.

MTVU helps quite a bit with framerate too.
