my sound is through the 1080 hdmi. i do have onboard sound...ill try to test that see if it makes a difference.audio through hdmi or a separate sound card? and in your nvidia settings is vsync enabled or disabled?
i have my vsync set to default "use the 3d application setting". i used to always turn it on back in the day, but sometime around the release of dragon age origins...turning on vsync would cause my frames to go from 60 to 30 then back again...it was jitter hell. since then i just config them in game unless otherwise noted from games with vsync problems.
those settings will do nicely...im not too worried about the eye candy...i just want everything to run smoothly. ive messed with shaders in the past and i usually like thoes ones that make everything look like animation or cell shaded...but its been forever since i messed around with them. im sure there are tons more out by now. thanks for the tips...ill mess around with them this weekend when my daughters not hogging my computer..hahaDo you consider this simple setting graphically unattractive?
There are two improvements: (a) increase of internal resolution [2x for 3D games] and (b) use of shader [in this case, technique for decreasing aliasing].
The increase of the internal resolution is executed by the CPU when using this plugin, therefore, it greatly affects the performance. However, shader usage is performed by the GPU and thus does not influence the emulation cost at all and therefore does not affect performance. On your computer, your GPU is not afraid of anything, it is extremely powerful, and for your CPU at least 2x the vast majority of games should be able to run smoothly, and at least a few in 4x.
There are alternative shaders for the Core GPU, "thin thing"! ["coisa fina" in portuguese means "good luxury"]
Choose the "99: Custom" option and then click the "..." button and choose a folder with one of the shaders from the link below:
ps: I'm also interested in knowing if VSync's GPU driver is disrupting the emulator's performance!
