unstable EE rate
Thumbs Down 
Hey guys, i am playing star ocean 3 on my laptop with an i5-2410m and Gt540m.

I manage to achieve a reasonable fps of around 60 fps, which quite smooth for me, however, every now and then the fps will lower to 30-40 for about 5 seconds before going up to 60 fps. This happens at a consistent rate.

when it happens, i also observe that my EE rate will temporarily go up to about 98 to 99% and then drop to around 50-60%.

i know EE rate is dependent on my CPU, is there any way for me to make sure that the game im running has a stable fps? thanks!

I think the game sometimes is more demanding at some times, So the fps/EE are not stable.

Also, enable High Performance in Control Panel. This will use 100% raw power of cpu and might help you get better fps. Tongue2

and put your notebook/laptop on the power cord, cause I said this before on another post, but u'll see ur power plummet if u keep it on battery only hehe.
heed all your advice guys, and it still remained the same. i tried another game atelier iris, and this thing didnt happen. i guess this just happened due to my crappy cpu. well, you can only do so much with a laptop.
Grab the latest beta from here http://www.pcsx2.net/svn.php

then enable "MTVU Hack" under the speedhacks section, as you have a quad core this will help greatly Smile

It's reading from the DVD disc that causes the slowdowns. Crete an ISO image of your disc using a program like imgburn and run the image directly with the internal ISO reader of PCSX2
