Settings recommendations for my PC
Hello!  Biggrin

I have a homebuilt PC that I wish to run PlayStation 2 games on, specifically Ratchet and Clank. Some parts are a little outdated and it could use a bit more RAM, but those will come when I have the funds. For now it runs and it runs decently and I have all files I need to run the emulator. My issue is that the game lags horrendously and is having issues properly rendering, most notably characters showing up as just a green model and textures randomly flashing to a static-y sort of thing. The pictures don't do much justice to show the severity of the problem, but they give a glimpse at what it's doing:

Download the latest dev build here, use the OpenGL renderer.
the stp for that chip is 1100. The slowdowns could very well be due to that. The general rule of thumb is 1600-1800 for mast games
