    Depends on your system. Some require more resources than others and, on top of that, there can be compatibility issues. In other words, tell us your specs.

    Dithering is good.

    OGL2, depends on your type of graphic preferences though. some like the traditional/unenhanced look of a real psx compared to the more polished and fancy visuals the hardware based plugins like the OGL2 can produce.

    For 3D games like Jonc said OGL2 one, but for 2D/sprite games the best is peops software plugin.

    Is there any reason why Resident Evil: Survivor runs slow? Mostly in crowed areas.

    check and make sure you are not using the auto-detect setting for the VRAM amount in the video config, set it manually.

    if you could post a screen shot of how you have your video plugin configured it might help us in the event what i suggested does not correct the problem.

    Btw just in case you have to write 1024 for 1 GB (cause its in mb), you probably know that but better safe then sorry :p.

    nothing your settings really look odd, although you could try turning off all those texture/screen/shader filters and see if there is a change in the performance. you could also see if the same slow down occurs on plugins other than the OGL2, like the D3d or OGL1.

    if it is a re-occuring issue then one of the possibilites is that the game has performance issues or other problems with the emulator itself. the other possibility is that it could be a problem that is actually present when played on a real psx too, unfortunately little can be done to correct that sort of thing.

    Set GFX card Vram manually write in the box 1024 your card is 1GB not 512 mb x.x.

    Other then that i don't see any problems in your config, do other games give you the same problem ?

    PS: mind sharing the source for your wallpaper ? :p

    Probably some conflict on your end all pete plugins work good with fraps on my end. Is your PC powerful enough for that though ?

    i'm really off-topic-ing some post, but really if this isn't useful mod may edit or delete my post

    i'm running an ePSXe right? my PC spec is

    Processor intel Core 2 Duo
    Nvidia GeForce 512 MB 9400GT
    1 GB RAM DDR2

    so i think this should work with fraps, but it stil crash, it doesn't crash only if i try the DXD6 plugin or so... i don't really remember the name (i'm not online from my current PC)

    PC wise no problem, that must mean something else conflicts with it Fraps since it works on my end with pete's plugins. Maybe some codec can't really think of something else.

    if you could just start a new thread it would be easier for everybody to manage. you are not in trouble or anything but its kinda hard to sort out two separate problems in a single thread.

    Wait, what about what the plug-in reports as the FPS? If it stays at 60FPS, I think I may know what the "problem" is. I made a post about this a few days back, and it may apply here.

    http://forums.ngemu.com/epsxe-discussion/128272-frame-rate-tearing-problems.html#post1751868

    My guess is, if FRAPS shows the actual game's (not the emulation of the system's) frame rate going down, then the real game likely did this too due to it needing to to run on that hardware. The fact that it happens on a crowded scene makes sense. Don't necessarily expect super smooth fluidity because it's "60FPS". It just may not be (and usually isn't). The frame rate of the game itself and the "FPS" of the emulation are two very different things. Most people don't know this.

    I had the same issue with Resident Evil: Survivor, lagging badly in crowded areas so I went to Special Game fixes and checked Fake Subtractive Blending and noticed I didn't lag as badly but it was still annoying so after seeing this post I set my GFX card Vram to 1024 and now it works perfectly.

    I know this post is a few years old but maybe it will help someone else with this issue like it helped me, thanks guys :3
