Damn SFA and SPM look great. Whats your system like and how well do they run?
I've been playing some NMH2 at 1680x1050 with the speed hack and it looks great and runs great but the sound is out of sync in the cutscences. Would be nice if there was a way to get rid of the fuzzy filter screen thing while still showing the HUD (you can move past it with he free move enabled but its where all the HUD elements are) Looks fantastic past that but makes it awkward to play not being able to see life andwhat not.
For most of us, yes, SMG does run slowly at some points, mainly in the observatory. However, that the CPU at those clocks you shouldn't be running into much lag. I suspect your settings need tweaking. take a look at this and compare your settings and make sure you are using the DX plugin.
My question: I have an AMD Athlon II X3 clocked at 3.3GHz and I'm considering an upgrade. Would something like the new 1090T x6 provide more performance? Not so much for the extra cores, but the L3 cache and higher clocks. Or, should I go with something like an X4 9550 BE. Keep in mind this is not just for dolphin but also GTA4 and most likely Crysis 2 which I imagine will be quite CPU intensive.
That's the version I'm using. As I have a i5 750 @ 4.0 and a 5870, I can't imagine it being my hardware. I'm using direct3d, with 2.5xSSAA, 16x AF, V-sync with frame limit off and copy EFB to texture. The music always stops after I use one of those stars that sends you flying. What settings are you using?
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, played the opening at a buddy's house and really liked it, borrowed and never took the time to dig into it. But holy shit it looks nice here. Except the shadows tend to start breaking
Yay! It worked! Here are some screens in gratitude. Also, I ordered a bluetooth dongle that is internet certified to work with a Wiimote and a wireless sensor bar
and I was seduced into buying a black Wiimote/Motion Plus bundle and black nunchuck
. Hopefully they will get here soon and then I will make a list of games I feel work well enough to play through on the emu and then let you guys vote based on what screens you want the most. Also also, I was testing Wind Waker last night and couldn't figure out how to turn off the DOF effect so I PMed our boy Nacire and he said to turn off the CPU->EFB access in the DX plugin settings. That did the trick and it looks gorgeous without the pixelly backgrounds (which I had never really noticed in previous attempts at working out a good config for some reason).
All I know is that I heard music for a whole level that I was playing the other day. Of course I still get crashes on most bosses and really poor frame rates in open-gl (which doesn't crash on bosses) so the music working for me doesn't really mean much.
