Pcsx2 crashes on loading screen
#1
Hello,

It's been a while since I've started using Pcsx2 to play my good old games and I don't have any issue about it myself, I'm actually glad I can still occasionally play those so long after saying goodbye to Ps2. I have a friend at my place and I've been trying to use pcsx2 on his laptop to play Ratchet&Clank3 -because his screen is wider than mine- and I can't find why it's not working. We boot on full and before "Playstation2" is written on screen, it crashes with the usual ".exe has stopped working (etc)"

We downloaded the latest dev build first -then tested several others so that's probably not the issue-,  and configured it as I did on mine :
- Emulation settings preset on safest.
- GSdx: AVX2 (every other plugin left as default) and its plugin settings left untouched - OpenGL (Hardware) and so on
- In the sound plugin settings, we changed the interpolation to linear but that's not the issue since it still crashes with Catmull, the default value. We also tried changing the module to Direct Sound rather than XAudio-2 but still doesn't work.
Everything else kept untouched.

When running out of ideas I ran the game on his, saw the crash and did the same with mine, waited for the PlayStation 2 title to appear before closing and comparing the emuLog files. The only difference is his end at this point:

I have no clue why he has an issue while I don't, any idea?

His specs :
Intel Core i7-7500U @2.70Ghz
8GB RAM
Intel® HD Graphics 620 with a supporting Nvidia GeForce 920MX

I'd gladly take any advice. And ofc, Merry Christmas!

Edit: After some blind testing, we discovered that if we fix the adapter to "Microsoft Basic Render Driver" in the Gsdx settings, it actually works -but is kinda slow-. This means we have to use Direct 3D11 but mostly that Pcsx2 has some kind of trouble using his actual GPU's since he has other applications running with either of those. Hope someone can help.

Since it's a laptop,try right clicking on pcsx2 and from the "Run with graphic processor" choose your nvidia card and from GSdx set the renderer to default.

When I first started pcsx2 on my laptop(new laptop with win10 on which pcsx2 was never started before),pcsx2 was actually using my intel card rather than my nvidia card until I set it in the nvidia control panel to make pcsx2 use my nvidia card

That part is missing from your log so I can't tell if pcsx2 is using your intel or nvidia card

Thanks for the reply.

We did try running pcsx2 with his Nvidia cart with Gsdx to 3D11 and default renderer but it still didn't work. Putting the Nvidia as the renderer didn't work either.

I find all this really odd, since it looks like, for some odd reason, pcsx2 can't use his graphic processors to emulate the game.

Open the task manager=>Performance=>the nvidia card and run a game in pcsx2.
You will see some activity if the card is used

Also in the nvidia control panel in the Desktop menu,you can enable "Display gpu activity in the notification area"
This is add a tray icon that will show which programs are using the gpu
