Hi guys, so i got the emulator up and running, and everything seemed fine until the ingame menu faded in (Shadow of the Colossus). While loading the game it's at a steady 60 to 80 fps. But when the game starts. boom, drops right down to 7/13fps which is almost unplayable, extremely laggy and occational freezes:mad::mad::mad:
I'm running on
-AMD Phenom 9650 QQ Processor 2.3 ghz
-ATI radeon 4650HD 1gb
-4gb ram (3gb in use/32bit vista)
which i think is a pretty OK setup as far as gaming goes. But should have no problem emulating a ps2 game.

and btw i've already tried the frame skip and speed hacks, helped but still totally unplayable.
any advice is appreciated!

Yeah, the system is ok for pc games, but NOT ps2 emulation.
Shadow of the colossus is a very demanding game, especially the cpu needs to be fast.
My guess is that a core2 at 5.5Ghz might play it fine. And yeah, that stuff doesn't even exist yet :p

But there's a trick to this game. Set the speedhacks to some high settings, and it goes a lot faster.
The game is still running quite bad, but at least the music and sound effects are fine then.
