What video settings should I use?
#1
Hi guys! I'm kinda new to the PS2 emulator and I have difficulties setting my video settings. What options should I use to get the best performance?

My specs are:
NVIDIA Geforce GTX 960 2 Gb
Intel core i5 6400 with 4 cores

My games have red,blue and green lines making it difficult to play.

Thanks in advance and sorry if I've put this in the wrong forum!

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.

Please make sure to enclose your emulog in code tags like so (remove the empty space on the closing code tag!):
[code]
Pasted emulog goes here
[ /code]

In order to help you further with your problem, please make sure the following are all provided.
  • Any non default settings you are using, such as speed hacks or presets.
  • Your GSdx graphics settings (a picture of the settings dialog is preferred)

Thank You.

And im using the agressive plus option (I havent touched the other settings because I have no idea how they work)

Furthermore, what do you mean with the emulog text file? Could you please explain it a little more simple (I'm really bad at this, sorry)

I see.
2 solutions :
- enable hardware depth in gsdx options and OGL renderer
- download latest GIT and enable OGL renderer

And BTW, Agressive plus preset is a very bad idea.
you PC isn't the best, but i don't think it needs such a harmful preset

Okay, thank you. what should I change my preset to? And where can I download the latest GIT, should I just search it on google? Smile Thank you so much, I really apreciate it! Where do I enable the hardware depth? I have no idea how to do this (As previously mentioned, I suck at this)
