ok, here's the thing I've just reinstalled win xp, and got pcsx2 again. I tried to run virtua fighter 4 evo and got 9 fps during game. I have a dell laptop with 2ghz core duo, radeon x1400, 2 gb ram I know it's a laptop and it's not so fast as a desktop. I know that my GPU is not so powerful but... the thing is that I have the same framerate with and without dual core mode. mtgs mode makes a difference of about 3 fps. but I don't get why dual core mode doesn't change a thing. does anyone know the solution of this problem? P.S. I have core duo hotfix and newest directx.
