Settings to prevent Stuttering and unplayableness?
#1
Hello,

So I've tried to play several games on this emulator and get basically the same issues. For the purpose of this post, though, I'm going to reference FFXII since it is the last one I tried.
FMVs play properly
Cut scenes stutter and slow down like nobody's business
Any scene outside with huge views of many things slow down
That first boss fight in the tutorial with the flying ship ran at maybe half speed
Bosch's special attack beam thingy also was slow
Pretty much everything else plays normally with occasional stutter or frame drop for a few seconds

That was all at pre-set 2. At pre-set 4 standard game-play is mostly normal, but cut-scenes, while they no longer actively slow down, stutter constantly instead of occasionally.

Are there any particular plug-ins or set-ups for the settings I should be using to play the game without these issues? I mean, my computer can run Dark Souls 3 at max settings, it should be able to play a many-years old game at basic settings without ***** up constantly.


For reference, my computer is made of the following:
AMD Bulldozer 8-core at 2.something
8 gigs of DDR3 RAM
nVidia 750Ti graphics card


Any advice is highly appreciated. Thanks!

Please post the contents of the emulog.txt file after the problem occurs. The file can be found in "My Documents\PCSX2\logs" for the installer version or in "PCSX2\logs" for the portable/binary version.

Okay, well the last time I loaded it nothing went horribly wrong, but here's the log - I'm not sure if you can get much from it. I'll try and start a new game and go through the rough parts tonight or tomorrow and post the log from that.

since your CPU does have an STR of 1215 where we would recommend at least 1600, the results you get aren't surprising.
Overclocking to 4Ghz may help, though
