I'm trying to play DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3 on my laptop, but it's running really slow, 20-30 fps. Is there any way i can make it run better? It can look like an SNES game as long as it plays well lol

My PC specs: 

Processor: Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 380 @ 2.53 GHz

Video Card: Intel HD Graphics

6.0 GB RAM

Yes it's a potato
It's a very bad potato for PCSX2, sad to say. This emulator requires decent single thread performance from your CPU. They recommend a single thread performance of 2,000. Some games require even better performance. Your CPU has a single thread rating of 1016. That's just barely over half of what you need. No miracle settings are going to make the game run any better. At least not at anything playable. You're going to be better off playing on your real PS2
I have a guide for low-end PCs and such, but a laptop i3 is going to be a nightmare.

(Note my guide was made for OLDER releases, but in general it can be followed and SHOULD still work)
