Hello, first i want to say sorry for my poor english.

I just want to ask if anyone here was able to play bloody roar 4 at 50-60fps (in-game)

If yes, what are the plugins you use and the settings recommended?

Many thanks..

My cpu specs:
Intel dual core, 1.6GHz (poor i know)
512mb ram
512mb Nvidia geforce 8400

I am planning to upgrade my ram to 2gb anytime, but do you think it's worth it? i mean, will it add a noticeable increase in speed in emulation?

Thanks again.

Your CPU and GPU are both far too weak. RAM can't hurt but won't increase framerate.

thanks. so instead of upgrading my ram, i should just upgrade my processor?

damn, i just bought that video card a few days ago. i should have picked the 9600 one, :(. if i only knew better. i was thinking both are just 512mb, and did not know about the importance of the gt difference.

Yup. Should'a bought at least a 9600GT.

Your entire system needs a proper upgrade. :( These days 2GB is commonplace. CPU-wise, you typically need a 3GHz or faster C2D.

BTW - try running PCSX2 with your game running and pull up the task manager by pressing ctrl-alt-del and view the performance tab. Look under the 'Physical Memory' section and make note of your free memory.

If you're on XP, you probably won't see much of a performance boost. As cooliscool mentioned, additional RAM won't increase your framerate, but it will help stop some of the stuttering.

Your biggest performance increase will occur with a CPU upgrade.

I'm laying all of this out to provide you with an upgrade path so you can see the upgrade "priorities". All in all, your system does need a complete overhaul for good PS2 emulation.
