Hello. I've been playing Xenogears on psX for awhile and switched to ePSXe tonight for the enhanced graphics. Anyways, aside from minor slowdowns, some cutscenes(not the animated movie scenes) bring my fps down to about 10 and I can't seem to figure out why.

Here's my current video setting:

Yea, the render mode is set to 2. Not sure why it pasted as a Japanese character.

The ePSXe version I'm using is 1.7.0.

Alright, I set the framebuffer upload to 2. I'll try it out and see if it slows down again while playing and post the results here. Thanks guys.


Setting the framebuffer upload to 2 actually slowed down my game noticeably and the FPS drops constantly.
