Newbie and not so techie
Hi guys! I just got pcsx2 v1.4.0 and I'm not still familiar with the settings. I'm playing Dragon Quest VIII now but when I use 2x native all battles falls to 30-45fps and I have no problem in some town and overworld, I get 60fps all the time and I read that some parts of towns and the overworld were not perfectly emulated yet and that's where I get 40-50fps. That's fine with me but what I'm not fine with are the battles. 1-2 enemies the emulator is fine 60fps all the way but when it comes to 3 above enemies my fps drops badly and I notice even with 2 enemies there are times my fps drops, I don't know if either when an enemy attacks or the camera angle. Then I tried native resolution but it's so blurry that I had no choice to make it window size and make my pcsx2 window 600x350 that's pretty small on my 22" monitor but I have no choice because can't play well on 2x native. Even on native reso I still get low fps on battle so can anyone help me?
