help with a few games, DoC:FFVII, .hack//GU, KH2, and PoP:SoT
#1
So I've just gone through and set up all my games in PCSX2Bonus, and got mostly all of them playing well without any glitches, at full speed, etc. There's a few I couldn't get running perfectly, I've already searched the forums/google for info and I've come up empty handed. Some of them I've read cannot be fixed, but a lot of the posts detailing this are not particularly recent. Hoping maybe someone on here has some knowledge about these issues.

Dirge of Cerberus - frame rate is awful no matter what speed hacks are used, and there is a post processing problem where half the screen is messed up

.hack//GU games - there's ghosting of characters when using anything other than native resolution

Kingdom Hearts 2 - ghosting of characters during certain cutscenes, I read somewhere I believe that it's a depth of field effect, as well as there are random black flickering polygons, for example on the Haunted Mansion when the camera is panning the view on the Mansion where you encounter your first heartless (dusk) creature (Shadow of the Colossus does the same thing when you're riding upto the very first mountain you climb)

Prince of Persia Sands of Time - ghosting issues of characters when not using native resolution

thanks a bunch

you can Improve your game speed by getting a better processor. the ghosting issue while upscaling might be fixed by some HW hacks, try checking them individually.

You might want to overclock a bit. Depending on your model and cooling you can might achieve something as 3.3GHz without changing vcore and maybe around 3.6GHz with increased vcore. This could make a difference for some games

Speed wise I feel like I'm actually okay, I have all of my games running at 60fps 99% of the time except Dirge of Cerberus. For example Dragon Quest VIII, God of War II, Shadow of the Colossus) I've read that SotC is terrible to get a good frame rate in, but I have it at 60fps, so I'm going to assume it's something related more to Dirge of Cerberus and less due to my processor.

Regarding HW Hacks, I have tried them all out I believe, particularly the half-pixel offset hack tends to take care of ghosting on certain games but not on these. I'll try them again to make sure.

even I get drops on Sotc at some scenes, did you manage to get almost 60fps constant in all the scenes ?

I haven't tested it extensively, just upto the first colossus, but I am getting a pretty much constant 60 up until that point. Whereas with DoC, the second you get in-game FPS drops, no matter what settings. If it is a matter of CPU, I'm not gonna bother to overclock or buy a new CPU, just hoping someone knew of a solution for the frame rate and post processing issues.

I actually tried the hacked GSDX and it didn't seem to do anything, I'll double check it, maybe I did something wrong.

It's here I think. But it's a very old revision of GSdx. If we had the source of it we could add it to a more recent version of GSdx.
