Setting EE to interpreter drastically improves speed. but it won't fix the other problems Tongue

Paradox alert.

No seriously, I don't wanna clutter this thread. But THAT is weird. It's even more evidence that it is an EE timing issue.

I had the guy make a test with EE overclock build and setting the slider to max OC also improved the speed a bit.

So yeah, timing problem. He said EE timing fix did not help either.

PCSX2 General Troubleshooting FAQ
It could be a "wait" function is being used which isn't counting extra cycles or something, but its unlikely directly as ive run the recompiler with all ops interpreted and it's still slow, which means there is a core logic issue here Sad
But yes, interpreter runs at 30fps (real) and the Recompiler runs at about 5fps, go figure!

Either way it's broken once you get control Tongue2

Playable in the Menu screens and anything that involves overlays. The moment it goes into a 3D environment, large maps becomes unplayable. Small maps, in this case, Ramp Mode, can be almost playable.

Rama, a PCSX2 Coder, mentioned that this game has timing issues and that there's an emulation bug.


There are no audio issues. Audio plays normally.

Cannot determine actual FPS in-game, FPS counter (Hovers around 59.97~62) counts differently than actual in-game FPS (Approx. 4~10FPS).

There are two game modes that differs in terms of play-ability. In Street Mode, the main mode of the game, it is unplayable. But in Ramp Mode, a challenge game mode, it is playable. Street Mode is unplayable due to the size of the map, and is playable in Ramp Mode due to how small the map areas are. Therefore, there are two statuses.

In Street Mode, the initial loading of the map area takes a long while (1 to 2 minutes long). In Ramp Mode, loading is quick.


Timing issues when playing on large maps. Timing issues scales according to map size. (Large maps = super slow, small maps = moderately slow).

Menus for Street Mode
Ingame to Playable for Ramp Mode (If you select the smallest ramp, it's Playable. If you select the largest ramp, it's Ingame.)


Different game modes and control scheme. Note the control scheme is very different.

Street Mode (GIF). Take note at the top of the GIF at the FPS counter. This is the map's intro. There's nothing I can do about it to stop the intro. Input barely registers.

The EE Timing hack gives the same results. I don't see much differences between the two.

In the EE overclock build, if the EE settings is set to -4, the game plays a tiny bit faster than the original build. The intro in the Street Mode is now somewhat viewable, and it's 15% ~ 22% faster than the original build.

You can compare it with the GIF I provided below. Same intro, same movie, just recorded at different times:
