May I ask you the memory of your computer? The question is not innocent - I watched this Youtube video
yesterday while looking for solutions and settings to prevent those freezes from happening.
It's Front Mission 3; a game I woul like to play seriously. The video features "HD" Graphics, a nice smoothing filter, etc. Take a look at the computer settings:Laptop specs:
- CPU Intel Core i5-2450M 2.30 Ghz
- RAM 4 GB
- GPU Gefoce GT 540M
- Windows 7 (64 bit)
I played the game before - Unless it's PAL version (50Hz), it's faster, but I don't notice any jumps or slowdowns, when the robot shoots with its shotgun for instance. But it's the case for me, and correct me if I'm wrong, but the laptop specs are not better than mine... BUT! I used the Sound Plugin ePSXe SPU Core 1.9.0. Results are rather good, though the FPS quickly fluctuates between 55 to 65, but I do not sense slowdowns, per se. The game seems to [i]"compensate itself"
, if that makes any sense. I hope you understand what I'm tring to say.
The drawback is I have cracks in the sound. Maybe I can work around this through the computer settings. What do you think?[/i]
EDIT: My mistake... Actually, the sound Plugin ePSXe SPU Core 1.9.0 does not give me improvements. Stil have those FPS drop and the stuterrings.
I read in the ngemu.com boards that ePSXe does not like integrated gfx card, like my Intel HD Graphics 4000. What bothers me is I tried to add ePSXe 1.9 to the nVidia card I have through the Control Panel, but when I close the window, it's like I did not do anything because ePSXe is no more in the programs added to the nvidia card. Plus, I tried to turn off Vsync for instance as advised in other threads around the Internet, but the freezes still happen.
In any case, here's a link
I just found that might work around that new hurdle... And the global process
I'm talking about.
