Best PS2 emulator for PC for playing Ace Combat Zero
Just today I tried PCSX2 1.3.0 and various configurations to play ACZ, the results were lackluster since it couldn't keep the 60FPS, making the gameplay very unpleasant. Do you guys have any recommendation?
Here are my laptop's specs:
HP Envy 15 Touchscreen
Intel Core i7 4th generation at 2.4GHz
12GB of RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4600 - 1792MB or 1.8GB
Windows 8.1 64-bit
With these specs, I can't even fathom why PS2 games would lag.
I should probably invest in a new PC for muh vidya gaems and for this PS2 emulator thingie. I want in on this Ace Combat emulator, no matter how buggy it is.
I tried it on my mac and it was literally unplayable, terrible quality AND ran at like 2.1 FPS. But I have no good knowledge of capable/powerful computers or what makes them up, I've always been an apple guy, but now I'm starting to realize..
I'd love to play these on my computer (I do have PS3/PS4 controller after all) but buying a PS2 with the games would probably be cheaper..
I have a PSP so I didn't get one. Its a MacBook Pro, about 1 year old Version 10.8.5 with a 2.6 GHz Intel Core i5 processor.
Apparently it isn't capable enough to play ACZ games with the mac emulator.
Actually you have an option which is using BootCamp in your Mac to install a separate Windows partition on you Mac, it should be powerful enough to run PCSX2 1.2.0+ and AC games decently using the Windows version.
It can be for free if you decide to torrent Windows 7 or 8.1 (I don't recommend 8 though).
Just make sure to use the following settings:
Video: GSdx 20140908174042 (MSVC 18.00, SSE41) 0.1.16 [GSdx32-SSE4] - this one comes with the automated versions found in the PCSX2 site.
Default Hardware Device
Software Mode Settings:
Extra rendering thread 8
As for audio:
Interpolation: 1 - Linear
Module: 4 - Portaudio
Make sure to have the correct drivers for your laptop installed once you use WIndows, especially the audio and video drivers. Also, search on YouTube how to properly install and use DualShock 3 controllers using the XBox 360 drivers.
FYI ceg, the settings you're using are what's best for YOUR system. What works for you won't necessarily work for others. Not really familiar with what they put into macs these days, but the GSdx and rendering thread settings will be different
